Bible Study On John 17:21

John 17:21 - that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.

The scriptures clearly indicate's the relation between God and Christ. "...and they bring to view as clearly the personality and individuality of each." (T8 268.1)

Here are some texts to consider when studying this topic.

2 Peter 1:21 - "for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God."

Hebrews 1:1-2 - "God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers (Those that lived before us and claimed God as a partner in their life.) in (Or "by") the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in ( the word "in" here we can consider the same as "through". It is easer for us to understand this term in our culture.) His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world."

"Before the cross, God the Father spoke to mankind though His Son..." Everything in the old testament is God speaking through His Son to put down sin.

How is this possible when the Father and the Son are equal?

Before the foundations of the universe, They (The TRINTY, spoke among themselves.) had decided the plan for redemption in the place that sin (Life apart from God) would occur...

So Christ had assumed that position of being the sacrificial Lamb, for any created being who fell into darkness (The Abyss), Sin (Life apart from God)

Life apart from God is just like Adam and Eve...they made a choice, we make that choice everyday, just like Adam and Eve made that choice. Then one day they switched their loyalties from God of the universe to god of the abyss. They worshiped the first false image of a god...the Serpent!

Hebrews 1:3-5. "And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they."

Just think of the scriptures we are considering this morning, with the realization that Angels are in the presence of God, without sin, and we sinful humanity have something promised to us that God is unable to say to the angels.

Revelation 1:5 - "and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen."
