    Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me for they are thine. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

    This lets me know God Children are always protected by Jesus our father we have Nothing to fear or worry about .all we have to do is to be faithful and obey the Word the he left here for us. The Bible and we must tarry for the Holy Ghost who is the Spirit of Jesus if we do not have his spirit we do not belong to him. the bible speaks of that so after u repent of your sins pray Acts Ch.2 v38 read it.

    Vers13 for the time of figs was not yet. Personally I don't think it was just about the fig tree as it wasn't time for figs so there fore no fig couldn't have been on tree so Jesus was teaching them to have faith in Him in what ever they ask an do.. vers27up to33 unbeliehe stop the power of God to work in their life's .vers25 an26 teaches us that forgiveness pleases God wen

    To Jayne on Mark ch. 11 - as long as what we ask is in 'His' will. Sometimes we ask for more money, but He knows more would 'cause us to 'drift' from him. This scenario is only if we already have sufficient for our needs. this rule applies to anything we ask: higher job, newer car, house, etc. He knows our 'needs' better than we.
