John-15:- Jesus is the True Vine of our Father and He requests us to stay with Him - 2. John 15
The World Hates the Labourers and not Disciples
18 â€œIf the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you because His Word makes you Solitary. 20 Remember what I told you: â€˜A servant is not greater than his master.â€™[b] If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed our Fatherâ€™s Will or His Word and not my teaching is corruption, they will listen to your Preaching also and not obey yours also. 21 They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not be guilty of hypocrisy and not sin; but now they have no excuse for their hypocrisy and not sin. 23 Whoever hates me hates my Father as well. 24 If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of hypocrisy and not sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father. 25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: â€˜They hated me without reason.â€™[c]
The Work of the Holy Spirit
26 â€œWhen the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Fatherâ€”the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Fatherâ€”he will testify about me. This was the Wage Paid to the Labourers at the Pentecost - Holy Spirit, the very Spirit of God making them Twin Brethren of Christ Jesus. 27 And you also must testify through Preaching Gospel, for you have been with me from the beginning.
