    We must pray for all born again brothers and sisters doing the work of the Lord. Because we cannot be where they are working.
  • Livy makhubedu for verse 29
    Jesus wanted to show that for a person to do an extra-ordinary healing or miracle, a person must be highly immersed in a faithful prayer done in the Spirit and truth. It is not the duration of the prayer that is important, rather is the depth or ingredients of the prayer which counts. The ingredients of prayer is Faith, God's Will and God's Glory. Fasting may or may not be the determining factor, as to what is in for our Almighty God. Does the prayer glorify God or is it to the will of God?

    Their, in verse 44, 46, 48. You will not find those verses in other versions of so called bibles. Only the King James Authorized Version of Gods preserved word for over 400 years. Their means its personal, individual. There are others verses missing, see if you can find them. A diluted bible is no Bible at all.
  • That the crowds that came to see Jesus wouldn 't understand if they heard from different people what they thought they had seen up on the mountain.it would grow out of control . Adding things to story ,making things. Up that it would ruin what was really seen.

    "we are the salt of the earth. " This verse elucidates that this adulterous and wicked generation is spared from the God 's wrath upon the earth because we are the salt of the earth. Salt is used a preservative. We are the preservative of this world. If we have not been in this world God 's wrath will be upon this world. Here "we " refers to the church which is cleansed and made righteous. As because of Noah the whole of the creation is saved and because of us the world is saved. PRAISE THE LORD
