Here's a engram lots. God loves God what God loves you one day have to tell each other anymore. Just words just the truth in Scripture were going to be saturated with them to be embraced by going to be wrapped and that's going to be heaven for me. So glad you joined us today for living in the light with Bible teacher engram lines in her message today in Texas to John chapter 17. Like Jesus was betrayed and arrested but before being tortured and tried before his crucifixion and death. We see how much Jesus loves and cares for us. We find Jesus praying for his believers was doing and now for part two of her message titled, Jesus prays for your future. Jesus is the thing that I like those virgins after 25. Half of them were prepared half of them were you and I need to live our lives so that we are prepared watching for his return were waiting for were working to bring people into the kingdom were walking with them on a daily basis, moment by moment, that we might hear his voice might be surrender to his will, that we might be to the praise of his glory and in that moment, we won't be ashamed first. John says we won't be ashamed it is coming going to be like we see some for the car see Jesus return were not alive when that happens you'll come for you and me at our death and I'm going to live my life the same way five minutes before I die, I want to have any regrets that we all have some regrets about understanding on top of the main purpose and direction of my life. I wanted to be concerned that I did and God's will, doing God's work his way going abundant entries and they have and I want to be a great big glorious living stone in that living temple for me talk about what position I like in heaven. I just assumed be a doorkeeper in the house of my Lord if I can be near Jesus just asserted his gopher. Who knows what he's going to sign this is just getting off track but tell you what I would like and have enough told him I want to be in a Bible class he teaches. I read Luke 24 before I would get anything to be one of those disciples on the Emmaus Road. I want to hear him explain the Scriptures. Maybe one day will be able to have him teach us as only he could. Right now he's teaching us through a seminar like this. He teaches this is read our Bibles. But what would it be having verbally audibly teach us and then illustrated by just calling no up and calling Abraham up and calling a large, often letting them tell their stories, so nothing is going to be more wonderful than we can imagine. I want to see a video of creation see a video of Genesis 1 and all those evolutionists to see that he spoke were brought everything criticism MEG prism is going to be wonderful so were going to share in his glory were going to see his glory. See his glory as the returning King see his glory is the reigning king. So take you to two of the most thrilling chapters to all of the Bible, Revelation 4 and five and I'm going to take you through this fairly quickly. Okay Revelation chapter 4. This is the same apostle John. By the way that wrote the gospel of John that recorded John chapter 17. Our Lord's prayer, and he's on Season exile and he sees the glory of the Lord in the first chapter sort of his testimony where he is at the moment, and then chapters 2 and three records letters that Jesus wrote the seven churches in Asia.

Each one of those churches represents a portion of the church age, so they are so prophetic in their message, not just speaking to that particular church.

But the age that that church represents then it switches gears in chapter 4 and this point on, the church is not mentioned in the Jesus comes back and sets up that millennial reign.

So some people and we don't know, but some people think that this is a reference to the rapture. After this I looked in there before me was a door standing open in heaven.

And the voice I first speaking to me like a trumpet said, fear, and I will show you what must take place after this at once.

I was in the spirit and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on Isaiah saw Jesus seated on the throne in his glory, Stephen saw Jesus standing beside the throne when he was stoned to death. Jesus rose the medium ingredient in John says Jesus is still seated on the throne.

He's in charge of when you go back home and everything is falling apart. You just remember, Jesus is on the throne and John says I saw him seated there and the one who sat there had the appearance of Jasper and Cornelia. Remember I told you the high priest had a breastplates on is just lame and the most holy place at 12 semiprecious stones, each one carved with one of the names of the tribes of Israel showing that weight when in the presence of God he carried the names of God's children on his heart. The first of those stones was a Jasper in the last room is a carnelian and could it be that Jesus is saying, even by the colors anywhere. I love you I love you I carry on the heart.

I love you, and then he said a rainbow, resembling an emerald, encircled the throne the rainbow. That's gave Noah rainbow that's been counterfeited today that represents God's promises covenant he keeps his word as he carries on his heart received on the throne.

He just reminding us in that frightening awesome moment that he's committed to you. He keeps his covenant of love 2000 generations surrounding the throne were 24 other throne seated on them were 24 elders. They were dressed in white had crowns of gold on the obviously they were ruling with him and there representatives are redeemed men and women.

So whether these are the apostles and the representatives of the tribes of Israel. Nobody knows, but we know that the reigning with him and they represent redeemed humanity from the throne came flashes of lightning rumbles peals of thunder. I don't exactly know what that means but I know something was going on. Heaven is not going to be boring is going to be exciting. It's going be electric atmospheres Klapper with expectancy and before the throne, seven lamps were blazing.

These are the seven spirits of God and that, referring to the Holy Spirit, the sevenfold Spirit of the Holy Spirit is invisible. So we would know he was anywhere unless he was represented by something a dove or seven branches candlestick or a flame of fire, so this is the Holy Spirit. Also before the throne there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal that would act like a mirror and reflect the throne and the Lordship of Jesus and his reign in his glory throughout the universe, and then center around the throne, were four living creatures.

They were covered with thousands running back and I'm not going to go to this description.

But there the cherubim and seraphim they live.

The closest to God of any of his created beings are the highest of the intelligences we see them in Isaiah 6 when they were ever before the throne, worshiping, and here it says that they never stop saying, holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty was an is is never stop worshiping what we know from the Scripture that they do a lot of work so they never stop worshiping in the workflows from the work somebody here, put your work before you worship what you do for the Lord just come out of the overflow of your heart because you love Jesus, you want to know Jesus and obey Jesus and serve Jesus and tell other people about Jesus that just comes this is natural overflow of your worship so they worshiped him day and night they never cease to worship him as they did not going to go through a description of them, but to actually take on the physical characteristics of Jesus, which is very interesting. Ezekiel saw them like this whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives forever and ever. The 24 elders fell down before him who sits on the throne and they worship him. So the continuous worship becomes contagious and it's costly. They lay their crowns before the throne. And they say you were in the our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power, you created all things by your will they were created and have their being. Chapter 5 verse six. Then I saw a Lamb looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders yet seven horns. That's just strength is on lipid is the Almighty and he had seven horns and seven eyes, that's his omniscience, he knows everything he's never had a new thought always been thinking about you Holy Spirit number seven because he is perfect he is God. Verse seven he came in he took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne.

That's the title deed to planet Earth is claiming his right to rule and reign on the earth, and when he took that right. The four living creatures and 24 elders fell down before the Lamb, and each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which of the prayers of the saints that I can't help but think that all of this crisis in our nation is filling up those bull's-eye people playing like that never prayed before and you wonder when the last prayer comes in because I had enough Jesus reign and rule on the earth come back so they sang a new song you are worthy to take the scroll and open it seals, because you were slain with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.

You've made him to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God and they will rain on the earth now looks and I heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands 10,00010,000, encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders in a loud voice they say worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and hope and glory and praise and I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea and all that in the singing to him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power for ever and ever.

Amen. And you and I are going to be there to see his glory is the reigning ruling king and down here when people are blaspheming him profaning his name, not even letting his name be spoken out in public. One.

Every legal bell and every tongue will confess I one of its at this moment in Revelation 50 universe whether they want to or not. Everyone confesses Jesus is Lord of the glory of God and we hear the amen class. Hallelujah in Jesus.

His name is going to resound throughout the universe and were going to hear that war of acclamation worthy is the Lamb who was slain, our ultimate future is glorious. The immediate future, as he conforms us to his own imaging revealed any sticking out all over other people can increasingly see Jesus in us in those hard things that come into our lives is okay. The pressure and the pain is all for work together for your good to conform to the image of Jesus when you're called according to his purpose for your good in God's glory so much like the hard things as we pray to be released. As we pray to be healed. Yes, we can pray for your reconciliation. All that but if it doesn't happen you just think how can I use this what your purpose in this for me. I want to use this to be an assignment. Show me how I can use it to bring you glory revealed Jesus to other people. So in the end were going to Sherry's going to see his glory, and then you're going to be saturated in the father's love Kansas prayer where he served began.

So in 25 and 26 John 17 going back righteous father.

Though the world does not know you.

I know you and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them and I will continue to make you known, in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them, listen to me God the father loves Jesus more than our minds can comprehend more than we could ever fathom God loves his son leaned out of heaven. This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased.

But Jesus is praying that when the Holy Spirit comes into lots and were made one with him.

The father will look on you and he will love you as much as he loves Jesus and I can tell you God loves you. God loves you. God loves you. God loves you. God loves you one day will have to tell each other anymore. Just words will be just the truth from Scripture were going to be saturated in the father's love. We going to be embraced by his love will going to be wrapped in a and that's going to be heaven for me so this is my challenge.

Would you live your life with glory on your mind. The immediate glory of growing into Christ likeness, being conformed to the image of Jesus is that when you see them you won't be ashamed because you going to be like the old nature will drop off your be a reflection of him and your ultimate future you going to be sharing in his glory could be saturated in this law when you go home what's going to hitch with the nationally globally or dispersal in your own home. All the dishes are done, all the kids that haven't done one thing online about school all the stuff that we face, you know, but I want you to that. She's is pray for you is praying that you stay focused on the relationship with the father and the son and the Holy Spirit. They belong to you and you belong to know the meta-personal permanent relation is praying that you remain steadfast in your faith fall away stumble any promises established in his word are secured in Israel, he will keep you, he will protect you should be evident in your walking should be fruitful in your witness is praying for your future knowing even like that he was betrayed. Looking past all the pain and the confusion, anger, and the grief and persecution that would come looking for the car that would be that he would share with us one day we would see when they we would just be enveloped in this log so remember geniuses is praying for you. Thank you Jesus pray with me. Place just in the next few moments with their heads bow your eyes closed. I just have to go after that one person, whoever you are, on the day that we're there with Jesus around his throne at the place reserved for God's children. Those who been born again so nevermind what the world says that there are many ways to God for all his children. Thus, not what the Bible says. The Bible says Jesus said on the way, the truth, like no one comes to the father except through me. There is no other name given under heaven. Among men, whereby you can be saved just the mangy right now if you haven't made that commitment to receiving by faith is your Savior and reward. John 112 says this to many who believe on his name as many as received him by faith. Invite them to come into their lives, surrender their lives to him. Those are the ones he gives the right to be a child of God. And when you're a child of God you can with the immediate future. He's going to walk with you through life and you going to look to ultimate future going to share in his glory.

When the sea is glory can be wrapped in his love, is just a win-win situation.

You can't lose to whoever you are, if you want to make that decision right now just going to lead you in a prayer you can pray this in your heart after me. Dear God, I come to you and I want to call you father, but I know as of this moment I don't have that right. I've not been born again and your family so much. The claim that right now I want to be born again so I confess to you that I'm a sinner and lots of wrong things.

I'm so sorry. I'm willing to turn away from them. With your help and I believe Jesus died on the cross to take away masses of nobody needed a Savior add to so I believe Jesus died for me. His blood was shed to make atonement for mass not ask you, dear God forgive me, cleanse me with his blood, and I believe he rose up from the dead to give me eternal life is a right now I'm asking that you give me eternal life in his name and understand better than I ever have that eternal life is not just going to heaven when I die, but is knowing you the personal permanent relationship from the state serve receive eternal life and open up my heart and invite Jesus to come live inside of me and understand that he comes into me in the person of the Holy Spirit, never to leave me liberty for safety on site geniuses to come live inside thank dear God for hearing my prayer.

Thank you. From this moment forward, help us to follow you all the way to heaven.

So if you've prayed that prayer something like it's words on it is important is space you put your faith in God's word, not what I say God's word says if you confess your sins, he will forgive you, God's word says if you ask him to give you eternal life. You will God's words as if you open up your heart.

Invite them to come and he will come in the person of the Holy Spirit, God's word says you are now a child of God. Whoever you are, you prayed that prayer welcome to God's family. The Angels are rejoicing to make the commitment to take those three questions what does it say what does it mean what does it mean in my life and start doing it in your daily quiet time daily status at just one paragraph of Scripture to time, asking the Holy Spirit to force all and this is not a time for weekly stories, waitresses, wimps.

This is a time to be strong in faith because it is rooted in God's words and handed down to us from the father-son Holy Spirit through the disciples through the prophet secured by God's will evident in your life when you're with is he spoken to you about the future. Your future doesn't matter to get that new car movement you have certain what the diseases are what the problems are you going home look past all that live with glory on your mind, your immediate future. As you grow in Christ likeness. Teresa Renteria, sanctify your life be devoted to the father's will be devoted to living a life of holiness separation from the world around you and then your ultimate future.

How glorious could it be that we going to share in his glory, and were going to see when they were going to be standing around the throne caught up in. That's war of acclamation worthy is the Lamb slain pray for going to look were going to see people who are there because we were here. We are faithful and help with the put their trust in you are going to be in heaven because our Lord.

Thank you and we look forward to that day when we no longer live by faith. But we live face-to-face saturated in your life. Her voice having your name on our four heads walking with you. Talking with you so whatever God has said if you can just quietly say it back to him and if there was a challenge or commitment that's required and you say yes Lord, I will. I will read not Bible every day.

I will make time to draw aside and be with you. I will stay focused his craziness on the relationship with you. I will be steadfast in faith. Thank you that you keep me that you able to keep not committed to you am committed to stay in your word step secured by your will, giving evidence about walk alone. I want to be fruitful and eyewitness. Help me Lord very much for your if were condemned by the world around us. Our neighbor doesn't speak to us.

It doesn't matter. Lord we just want to be well want you to use us for the salvation of what can we say and what would it be like when we hear that that trumpet the voice of the archangel Jesus himself shy as he comes back to receive us to himself happen in the blink of an seconds in all of this life and eternity will begin for its own Lord, help us live our lives with glory automatic so that we have no regrets not for one look forward to being embraced by you saturated just going back safely hearing and on voice was here love you I love you as much as I love my spirit within you.
