Dear friends, if you believe in Jesus and have been born again by the Spirit then the priestly prayer of John 17:1-26 He prayed before going on the Cross for His sacrifice included you. Jesus poured out His precious holy blood for you. His blood speaks on behalf of you every time in front of God’s mercy seat. In His prayer He prayed that we might be one just as He and Father are one and that we might be in Him. His prayer was that into this oneness between Him and His Father we might be brought in be in a state of completeness and keep being in it. Father loves us just as He loved Jesus Himself. Beloved friends, this is a prayer of Jesus Himself and He always gets what He prays for. Shall we consider stepping into the full understanding and reality of this prayer of His ? If being in a state of completeness in Oneness was not possible then He couldn’t have been able to pray that. Think about it! It is with the help of precious Holy Spirit that we can even enter into the experiential reality of this prayer. If we are not experiencing and living daily in this reality then obviously we are not entering in when its so freely available. Enjoy this short snippet from the visual bible where Jesus prays the priestly prayer and let His words sink into you.
This is where Jesus drastically differs from all of us who have not understood this perspective. He came into this world which was full of problems and caused every situation to abound with glory for God. His language also was very different. He was so busy manifesting the oneness He enjoyed with His Father that He never saw problems as something to worry about. When His disciples wondered how they would feed the people who followed Jesus, He simply multiplied the food. When He came He brought the Kingdom of God with Him. The way the Kingdom of God operates may seem so very different than what we physically see all around us, but that is the real deal. We truly have been called to operate by living from heaven on earth just like Jesus and even more than Him because we have His indwelling presence inside of us at all times, precious Holy Spirit. Not many really know how to walk in this revelation reality but some children of God like brother Graham Cooke know how to make it practical for us. Have a listen! This truly is a call to a higher place but is our home.
