And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto Him: and He was nigh unto the sea. And, behold, there came unto Jesus one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw Jesus, he fell at His feet, And besought Jesus much, saying, My little daughter lies at the point of death: I pray you, come and lay your hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. And Jesus went with him, and many people followed Him and thronged Him.

I am the true vine, and My Father is the husbandman. Every branch in Me that bears no fruit He takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, He purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Remain in Me, and I remain in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it remains in the vine; no more can you, except you remain in Me.
Peter asked Jesus a straight forward and an important question “How many times must we forgive seven times? We can find the answer (Matthew 18: 21-35)
Jesus clearly said in sharing this Kingdom of God truth that our Heavenly Father will forgive those who have a repentant heart.
It must be clearly understood that if that person who has been forgiven, having had their slate wiped clean, experienced the new birth, but then refuses to forgive another person from their heart when they stand before our Heavenly Father because they did not show mercy (as they had been shown mercy), they will now be required to pay for their sins.
I want to take this opportunity to share a word that the Lord gave me during August 2010.
“There are so few of My people, My own, who live with any awareness of eternity, with a conception of the vastness of My total being.
There are so many who are locked into the narrowness of their own time but have no conception of eternity. Life and time itself are as a blink of My eye in My conception of life.”
How many believers today are hearing the true Gospel, a gospel that is hard on the flesh, a gospel that presents Jesus Christ as both Lord and Saviour.
Many want to be saved, but do not know they are called to serve, many want the benefits of salvation but do not know the demands laid in the Gospel to serve and follow Jesus Christ.
Enter You In At The Narrow Gate:
Enter you in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because narrow is the gate, and narrow is the way which leads unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7 v 12 -13 )
There are several important truths that every single believer in Jesus Christ needs to gain a revelation of when examining these words spoken by Jesus Christ.
First of all, it is essential to understand the meaning of the word re-discover; It is the action or process of restoring something that has been ignored, overlooked or replaced.
In the early 1800s, there was a school of thought that embraced a false concept, that the Gospel of Jesus Christ had its purpose in history only, in that it was preached to the Jewish people during the days when Jesus walked in Galilee, but that it has little relevance to the Christian church, to the body of Christ.
To live a life on this earth that bears much fruit and glorifies Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, we need to receive the Words of Jesus Christ as if He was speaking directly to us.
The Words of Jesus Christ must penetrate deep into our minds and spirits. The Words of Jesus Christ must be planted in good soil, which is an honest and good heart.
For my life to glorify the Father, I need to be in the position to hear Jesus and observe how He lived out His life on the earth.
While Jesus spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; HEAR you Him. (Matthew 17:5)
