These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast GIVEN HIM POWER OVER ALL FLESH, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW THEE the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. As thou hast sent me into the world, EVEN SO HAVE I ALSO SENT THEM into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that THEY also might BE SANCTIFIED THROUGH THE TRUTH. Neither pray I for these alone, BUT FOR THEM ALSO WHICH SHALL BELIEVE ON ME through their word; THAT THEY ALL MAY BE ONE; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, THAT THEY also may BE ONE IN US: THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE THAT THOU HAST SENT ME. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and THAT THE WORLD MAY KNOW THAT THOU HAST SENT ME, AND HAST LOVED THEM, as thou hast loved me. Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it : that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them. John 17:1-3,18-26. The Body of Christ, being the Bride of Christ, the Believers, the Followers of Christ, those Obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit, ARE VERY MUCH ALIVE AND WELL ON PLANET EARTH. They are Full of Christ, and Fully In Christ. Here's the point. The world WILL see Christ in these Believers, and the world will continue to willfully Reject Christ as their Saviour. Before this is all over, THE WORLD WILL KNOW OF CHRIST, and still reject Him. Believe in Christ, and, Be Blessed.
