                            SANCTIFICATION - BEING SET APART
Jesus Prays for His Disciples

12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by[c] that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

13 “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15 My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17 Sanctify them by[d] the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19 For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

Jesus Prays for All Believers

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Ser consagrado (sanctificado) significa ser "separado" para um propósito Santo.


João 17

12 Enquanto eu estava com eles, eu os guardei com o poder do seu nome, nome que o senhor me deu. Eu os protegi e nenhum se perdeu, a não ser o filho da perdição, para que acontecesse o que a Escritura diz.

13 —Agora eu estou indo para onde o senhor está. Mas eu estou dizendo estas coisas enquanto ainda estou no mundo para que eles possam sentir dentro deles toda minha alegria. 14 Eu tenho dado a eles o seu ensinamento, mas o mundo os odiou pois eles não pertencem ao mundo assim como eu também não pertenço. 15 Não estou pedindo que o senhor os tire do mundo, mas que os guarde do Maligno. 16 Eles não pertencem ao mundo, assim como eu também não pertenço ao mundo. 17 Que o senhor os torne seus por meio da verdade. O seu ensinamento é a verdade. 18 Eu os enviei para o mundo assim como o senhor me enviou. 19 Em favor deles eu me entrego completamente ao Senhor. Eu faço isso por eles, para que eles também estejam prontos a se entregarem completamente ao Senhor.

20 —Eu não estou orando somente por eles, mas também por aqueles que ainda vão acreditar em mim por intermédio do ensino deles, 21 para que todos sejam um só. Pai, oro também para que eles estejam em nós, assim como eu estou no senhor e o senhor está em mim. Que eles sejam um para que o mundo acredite que o senhor me enviou. 22 Eu dei a eles a glória que o senhor me deu para que eles possam ser um, assim como o senhor e eu somos um; 23 Eu neles e o senhor em mim, para que eles possam ser completamente unidos. Então o mundo vai entender que o senhor me enviou e que o senhor os amou assim como me ama.

Recap: Ian’s series on the End Days

Are You Ready?

Revelation 1: 3,  22: 7

Titus 2: 12-13

II Peter 3: 13-15

II Corinthians 6: 2b

Hebrews 9: 27

Outcomes of studying prophecy:

      Peace about what we see going on in the world

      Motivation to live a God-directed life

      A desire to share the Good News of Salvation

II Timothy 2: 15

I Thessalonians 4: 13-18

James 5: 7-8

Matthew 24: 44,  25: 13

Mark 13: 32-33

Hebrews 11: 6


Daniel’s Prophecy of 70 Weeks





Hebrews 1: 1-2

 7 sevens.        49 years               Jerusalem rebuilt

62 sevens       434 years               Crucifixion

 1 seven              7 years               Tribulation

                        490 years      

Daniel 9: 24-25

Prophetic year is 360 days

solar year is 356.25 days

483 (that is 49+434) x 360 = 173,880 days

173,880 / 365.25 = 476 solar years

So to calculate forward 476 years, we start in the active year 444BC-443BC (when Artaxerxes decreed the rebuilding of Jerusalem) which brings us to AD 33, Christ’s crucifixion. 

Nehemiah 2: 1

Daniel 9: 25-27

The 70th week of Daniel is from the beginning of the Tribulation to the coming of Christ’s Millennium.

Genesis 15: 18

Plan as if Christ’s return is 50 years away, but live as if Jesus is returning for us this evening!


The New World Government

Daniel 2: 44-45 - 

“In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. 45 This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces.

“The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy.”


The Judgment Seat Of Christ

How we live and act today has eternal consequences

II Corinthians 5: 10

The Bema Seat is the rewarding seat

John 5: 24
