John 17:2 Even as You have given Him authority over all flesh to give eternal life to all whom You have given Him

John 17:2 Even as You have given Him authority over all flesh to give eternal life to all whom You have given Him.

John 17:2 Even as You have given Him authority over all flesh to give eternal life to all whom You have given Him.

The oneness of the Body is the oneness of all the believers in Christ in the Father’s name (John 17:2, 6, 11). To be in the Father’s name is to be in the Father’s person, for in the New Testament, the name always denotes the person. Thus, to be in the Father’s name is to be in the Father Himself. In the sense of the New Testament, the Father always bears the denotation of the source of life. The father of a family is the source of the life of that family. In John 17:11 the Lord prayed that the believers would be one in the name of the Father. To be one in the Father’s name is to be one in the very source of the Divine Trinity.

This oneness is also by the Father’s divine life and with the Father’s divine nature. Since we have the Father’s life, we also have the Father’s nature, for the nature always goes along with the life. We have the Father’s person as the source of the genuine oneness, and we have the Father’s divine life with His divine nature as the very element of this oneness. These are the intrinsic contents of the oneness of the Body. (The Intrinsic Problem in the Lord’s Recovery Today and Its Scriptural Remedy, pp. 10-11)

    There is one Body in this universe and all the believers express this oneness in Christ, the embodiment of the processed and consummated Triune God, the Spirit, in our spirit. When we turn to and live in our spirit, which is mingled with the Spirit, we are in the Body of Christ. The Spirit is the divine, all-powerful resurrected, incorruptible life. Then all that Christ is, has, has obtained and attained is ours effortlessly as the law of the Spirit of life operates in us both the willing and the working for God’s good pleasure. O Lord Jesus, cause us to see these divine high-peak truths so that we may be built up into Your Body as the one new man, Your church, Your bride, Your warrior to fight your cause on this earth and hasten Your coming back to change the age. We love You Lord Jesus Christ.
