For I say unto you, as the world so reviled and hated and persecuted Me so shall the world revile, hate, and persecute you. Do not be surprised or hurt by the actions of the world toward you. The enemy knows the names of those who are Mine. He is now raging as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. His goal is to kill, steal, and destroy. He will use any and all means to achieve his end. He desires that Mine are put out of commission. He attempts to trouble and perplex you on every side so as to prevent the fulfilling of your destinies and the successful functioning in your assignments for this hour. But I say unto you, rise up in the power of My might!!! Set your faces like flint and move forward in your work in Me. These are not the days to give up or lay down. These are the days to stand and deliver. Stand in Me and proclaim My Truth. The fields are truly white with souls to harvest. Know that with every open door of opportunity given by Me, there will indeed be opposition from the enemy. He is now attempting to crush all that he can; however, I shall soon crush him under your feet! Therefore, do not give in to the wiles of the enemy. Your weapons are mighty to the bringing down of strongholds. I AM with you and will lead you through all! But you must be determined to outlast the enemy. You must be willing to withstand and endure all he throws your way recognizing that the trials of this hour are but light and momentary afflictions that will soon be forgotten as you are crowned with the weight of My Glory. Oh yes, My beloveds, perseverance gains the crown!!!! So endure until the end….fight the good fight of faith. Be determined to finish the race set before you regardless of the cost! For in and through you, My Glory is acheived!
20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21That 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.
22And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
23I 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.
24Father, 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.
25O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.
26And 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.
