Discussion for John 17

  • A disciple
    Reg; It should very much matter to you to show the appropriate reverence and respect, and see that Christ and God is capitalized when you write! You can do that by holding the "shift" key while typing the C and the G! However one has or has not enough training and practice to write well; it is important that they learn; and I will always push on that: for it will only be for your benefit and good.

They that have not the doctrine of christ hath not god. His servants are still in every country in the world seeking honest and lost souls. Going forth totaly by faith , it is hidden from man but only will be revealed to lost and seeking souls. No Money

    Jesus Christ, ( the lamb) prayed for us to Jesus, ( the Father,) and said I have manifested THY NAME to men. The name which is above every name. JESUS! The prayer was completed by the Holy Ghost who transmitted the message in the Spirit. What an awesome gift.The Godhead complete was at work on our behalf at that moment. I praise, honor, and extol the King of Heaven.
