And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, you may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.So basically Jesus was saying these people in high places will think they are doing the right thing. They will justify their impurities, faults and sinful ways. That is when you think, Jesus was right and he did say this in the times that he walked the earth. But look at today's world. There are so many parallels. John 15:20 Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.
Something to definitely think about.
