Jesus said if you come in your own name (meaning your own understanding of Jesus) then people will accept you............everyone has a right to their opinion after all
but if you come in my name, they will hate you
only those who are BAPTIZED into the NAME of Jesus can come in his name
others who come in his name are liars and thieves for their own purpose
PS, you should read the Bible through the power of the HOly Spirit that wrote it through men
you come to the same understanding that way instead of your own understanding
Paul explains, I live but "NOT I"........but Christ in him...........who increases as Paul decreases.....thats the meaning of prophecy........
prophecy which is to speak as an ORACLE OF GOD since the prophet speaks the WORD from his heart that is engrafted with it.............enables the soul to merge (transformation, conversion, regeneration) to become ONE with Jesus Christ, the PLAN of God from the beginning
