70 X 7 Turns out to be a Great Deal After all! — 7 Comments

  1. Peter had a number of qualities that are mentioned. Some good and some not so good. One has to be greatly impressed with the power of the Holy Spirit that was instilled in Peter. To heal and raise people from the dead. I do not remember other disciples than John, with the same available power. Peter was the spokesperson for the disciples! Why? Only God knows what is best.

    Amen!(8)
  2. Our God is marvelous, He waits patiently and works with us so that we may attain perfection, that's why He said in Matthew 6:12 "And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors."
    Our heavenly Father can't forgive us if we're not ready to forgive others !

    Amen!(6)
  3. Our heavenly father is always loving and patient with us even when when our character is not worthy! He paid a price for us to be saved.May God help us all through the Holy spirit to continually save Him with faith and honesty.

    Amen!(8)
  4. While Jesus was indeed referring to our interaction with each other saying we must forgive 70 x 7 I believe he was also referring back to the prophecy in Daniel where God gave "His people, Israel" 70 x 7 years to accept the Messiah of which Jesus was the fulfillment of the last 7 years, his ministry of 3.5 years, his sacrifice in the middle of the last 7 years and Stephen's stoning at the end of the 7 years and thus the end of literal Israel being God's people and now spiritual Israel becoming God's People.
    So just as God was giving & forgiving Israel for 70 x 7 years we should forgive your neighbour 70 x 7 times.

    Amen!(11)
