VIII. MAIN BODY:

Matthew 18:19 (Amplified Bible)

Again I tell you, if two of you on earth agree (harmonize together, make a symphony together) about whatever [anything and everything] they may ask, it will come to pass and be done for them by My Father in heaven.

Matthew 18:19 (King James Version)

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

A. If only two of us agree on earth in prayer

"Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask,"

Matthew 18:20 (Amplified Bible)

For wherever two or three are gathered (drawn together as My followers) in (into) My name, there I AM in the midst of them.

Exodus 3:14 (Amplified Bible)

And God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM and WHAT I AM, and I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you!

JESUS CHRIST is in our midst whenever two people gathered proclaiming His Name, discussing His WORDS, praying. And He is that near to us to hear our prayers and answer them. The song that says, He's from a distance, He is near, so near that He occupied the center of two people that prays and shares His WORDS.

ILLUSTRATION: I have been blessed with opportunities and priveleges that I was able to share the gospel to prisoners in a small city jail. I was very excited to do that and will do it again if given the opportunity. All we do are priveleges and opportunities for the LORD JESUS CHRIST.

B. It shall be done by our FATHER.

"it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven"

John 14:13-14 (Amplified Bible)

And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son.
