Spanish class a day Espanyol
that's at six o'clock six o'clock say say say see punto that on the DA okay man. Matthew chapter 11. Just a thought and good. Amen. God has good things for us to meditate on in His Word.
Sometimes people think I intentionally tried to talk for a long time and hold people over. That's not my intention. My attention is to take something that maybe the Lord spoke to me about
relay that to you. It's, as I've said, we're just beggars. A man's one on one beggar found the bread wants to share it with another. And so we're sharing it and you know, sometimes you'll take it may be a little different than I got it. But I hope that this this will help you. I believe that everybody should have been here tonight to hear this. But you're here and I believe by divine appointment in
this is Jesus speaking. He says, Come unto me, all ye that labor
are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest on your souls. For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.
Let's just pray for a moment us look, Lord in prayer. Heavenly Father, we just come to your throne, thankful again, Lord, to have your word, Lord to Lord have the presence of your Holy Spirit to lead us through your word. Lord, I just pray that you would speak to our hearts tonight and or meet the needs or we come every service with needs and different ones with different one needs. Lord, you know what they were before we came. Father, I just pray that you
Lord be with us. Thank you for the answer prayers and the praises tonight. Thank you for a good service. This morning. I pray for a good one tonight. In Jesus name. Amen. Amen.
times the word come
is used in the scriptures. And you can imagine how many ways is used. But pretty much when you when you think of that word,
no matter what context you put it in, it means the same thing. It just means literally to come. And,
and as I as
I look at this scripture, I find the solution to one of the biggest problems that mankind is facing of probably five or six problems that people would say plagued them in the in the world today. This verse deals with at least one or two of them, that I believe that if we just glean some truth from this, that that wouldn't be our problem. Amen, that that we that it wouldn't happen be a burden that we had to carry any longer and that it'd be something that would be beneficial to you and I and it's beneficial to you have a wife is probably beneficial to your husband, it's beneficial to a husband is probably beneficial to his wife and it's probably beneficial to the children a man and then when they come to church is probably beneficial to the church.
There's a lot of people today under
a lot of stress.
I mean, people are just wound up
people are wound up I mean, like, I've never seen it before, and it's just not getting better. This is not something that's working itself out. It's not something that you just take your hands off that is, you know, something that's going to solve itself. It's like a hydraulic leak and attractor those things never fix themselves. They never stopped a man they just keep dripping and that they don't get better. They get worse.
Let me ask you. Are you tired?
Are you tired? Are you sick and tired?
Are you just tired,
I'm just tired. We all tired I'm he told me he did the how many 6062 cows today 67 six a bunch of cow my god Friday he did 100 and something and imagine and guess what? That job never ends it just keeps going. You say wow tire. We're physically tired. And by the way what what the Lord is talking about here is not a physical tired,
but he likes to work do you enjoy work,
enjoy doing thing you like to work? Hey, man, I think God put that in our hearts. You we like to work it's hard for me to imagine people that work harder out of trying to get out of work than they would if they would actually get a job and work
you know, I mean is some thieves put an awful lot of effort and time and planning and, and you know, in trying to steal something, they would probably have more if they put that same effort that time and that you know, dedication into you know, just having a job. But the Lord's not talking about here. There's there's three things I want to talk about in this in the in these three verses.
In verse 28. He says, Come
first 2019 says take
and the middle part of verse 29. He says, learn
Keep your finger here in Matthew and I want you to go with me to the book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible. Revelation chapter 22,
the last of those 2192 some odd references to the world. Come here in Revelation chapter 22.
And verse number 17. It says in the Spirit
and the bride
and let him that hear it. Say come
and let him that is a thirst come.
And whosoever will let him take of the water of life
I remember the song little to me. I used to seeing come to Jesus, you remember that come to Geez,
geez, she had that perfect voice for that little innocent boys for that song. And you know, the message was this come to Jesus.
When he says when he says come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden. He said, I'll give you rest. He wants you to come to him.
He wants you to come to him.
Now we come to Jesus for a lot of things. I hope that you have been a person that has come to Jesus for salvation.
One day, you recognized that you are a sinner.
The Bible says all have sinned.
Anybody have a problem with that? We just got a small crowd tonight. Everybody in this room's a sinner, you dirty. Rotten sinners say amen.
Me, I'm a big center.
I came to Jesus as a sinner. As someone who could not do anything about my sin. I could not be cleansed. I could not wash my own sins away. I had to go to one who was sinless.
I had to go to a perfect savior with perfect blood, not tainted blood, not corrupted blood like mine. But I had to go to Jesus and and and Jesus was there. And then just like in Revelation 22 the Spirit said, Come
the bride said come the bride by the way in Revelation is the church and the bride said come and and we should be a picture of that church we should be saying Come come and hear the gospel come and hear the truth that will set you free oh it doesn't mean you have you can quit your job now doesn't mean that oh my gosh. If I come to Jesus I can rest and I don't have to worry about any of the those things anymore because that's what he's talking about. No, he's not talking about a physical labor he's talking about laboring
spiritually and mentally and emotionally
I can tell you that
some of the most the days
that I am the most tire
is not after working 1214 hours
it's not a for digging are hammering or or carrying or are hauling are loading. But I tell you that the target and I know it's really hard for people to understand me to believe I get more tired after Sunday that I do any other time.
And it's a different kind of tired
and you know, I got to share my heart just a little bit because sometimes, you know, I want so bad for people to understand this and the know hey, you know, there Jesus is saying that come to him. Because I'm not going to give you the physical rest of do you think you're going to but I'm gonna listen. There's people that sleep all the time and there and there are always tired, they're always tired. And they say depression causes people to be tired. You're always tired.
Jesus said, I can give you rest into your soul.
I can give you a rest. You don't have to worry about the same things that everybody has to worry about
you you don't have to worry about when you go to a funeral. whether or not there is hope for that person beyond the grave. Well, I hope they were good enough. Boy, I don't know I don't Oh my gosh. I just you know,
we have hope beyond the grave. We don't sit there and and and worry about somebody you know, it doesn't matter whether child or adult or loved one. We don't worry about them being there and being put in the ground forever. Because the Bible says look, the body is going to return to dust. But the spirit and soul of that person can go on and we have hope
we can come to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation.
Simple. The good news is this is that Jesus Christ was crucified.
The reason he was crucified
was for my sin.
He was buried
for my justification,
he to death.
Sometimes people come to the Lord for a lot of things.
Some come say, I need healing. I need to be healed.
physical healing is I believe is still real
it's not the circus that we see on TV and that some of these guys that claim to have all this power I wish they would just not go to the church I wish they would go to the hospital
Amen. Just go I mean, you all their healing people and knock it now don't don't bother coming here, man. Go. If you're about physical healing, go to the hospitals.
I mean, you know, to me, Look, I don't care if I see it. Just go help some of those people. And by the way, guys, if you ever want something to do, I don't have anything to do for Jesus, and you want to be a part of a ministry you want to do. So just drive down the hospital and they'll let you walk up and down the rooms and there'll be people that away be in
Oh, would you talk to me, I'd like to talk to you come in,
they will. And you can sit in it will waste an awful lot of time in there. Well, I don't think it'd be wasted if it was really done for the Lord. If you went in there and comfort somebody who needed comforting. You want to want to pray with somebody when when they're just a be with somebody
says come to me.
It doesn't even say here doesn't say come to church
doesn't say that here does it?
now. I believe that message ought to be in a church. I think that it ought to be ready and people to hear the good news when they come to church. Sometimes that's not the case.
I wish I wish I could say it was always here that we always had the good news. But sometimes I look around and I see some of your faces and it don't look like good news.
Looks like oh,
come to church.
I'm here. I'm here. I'm here. Brother Tim. I'm here.
I sacrificed I gave up an hour this week.
I wish I could tell you that. It says come to church it and say he said come to me.
Are you struggling?
Or is there things in your life that you're struggling with? Or they weigh in you down? Or they burden some is it is this thing going to take you out and he just simply says this he says come
Take my yoke upon you
know what I see there?
Take my yoke upon you.
Now, here's something you need to understand about a yoke. yoke is designed to hook two animals
It's not about one it's about two. It's about it's about taking one who has a heavy burden. Who is absolutely i mean, just worn out and struggling and pulling a load and and saying hey, let me cut your load in half. Let me put something next to you
and put a yoke
and now all of a sudden what happens
And literally, you know, the Bible says that that Jesus is saying, you know what, you'll come with me,
you know, said why don't want no yoke at all? Well, I'm going to tell you something, you know. So I don't even know what a yoke is. I wait a minute. A yoke is a as the middle of an egg.
Well, if you believe that the yoke is on you.
That is not a yoke. A yoke is something designed to make to
bible talks regarding the marriage not to be on evenly. You
don't don't hook up an ox and an ass
Did you know under the law, no ox and asked to plow together. Why? Because it was an equal. One of them would work the other one to death.
It would work. I mean, it would just I mean, imagine that. I mean, they'd be going around in circles, they wouldn't ever get to the end of the field. Because they were they were not pulling evenly.
And and so as we begin to understand this concept, this idea of this yoke is the Lord saying, look, take my you hook up with me. You're going to be pulling somewhere you're going to be hooked to something. And by the way, if you're not hooked to Jesus, then you're hooked to the god of this world.
And it's just simply saying, look, Take my yoke upon you.
He tells over in the book of Isaiah chapter 40 says, They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles. They shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint. He says, I'm going to renew your strength, I can, I can take that burden that load off you. I mean, miraculously, so that it's just gone.
I can renew that like, like, you know, there's a lot of people that I've heard this, I don't know if you you know this, but they don't know. They can't tell how old an eagle is.
There's eagles. And they know this. There's Eagles that have been passed on from generation to generation.
And what happens that there's a point in time and an Eagles life when they can renew they, they completely lose everything that they have all their feathers, everything down to the skin. And they just and all of a sudden a just a new
coat of feathers
and just new life
comes over them. Nobody can explain that
you can look at a 25 year old legal and 100 year old legal that has just melted and gone through that process. And you cannot tell the difference. I've studied that
the Lord can take you who are tired,
who feel old
say you know what, I can renew. You
just take my yoke upon you
I knew there was a catch,
I gotta do something.
He says. You know what, learn of me.
Don't. Don't learn about what everybody says. And I've always said this don't even take the preachers word for you better make sure the preachers preaching out of this book
you you better make sure that what he's saying lines up with this book otherwise us and say vomit.
the lines of we need to learn about the Lord Jesus Christ. We need to learn about the hope that he gives us and and I believe the strength that he can give us the wisdom that he can give us Hey man, and and I believe the abundant life that Jesus talked about in john chapter 10. He said, I've not come to give you life that I've got. But to give you life more abundantly.
And if we're stressed out, man, if we're way down with the weight of the world, and the cares of the world are upon us all the time. And we're dragging
Yes. Guess who's carrying the load
brother, Marlin guy who used to come to shirt years ago
many years ago, because he died in 2000
long time ago.
He's he talked about when he was a kid in fertile Minnesota. And he used to one of his jobs as a kid was hitching the horses
and he always had one horse that just was worn
out. And horse was just worn out all the time. And
so we decided to switch the team
with that horse
with a another horse
and found out that the horse that was always getting tired before didn't get tired anymore.
And there was this one horse who who knew how to fake like, he was pulling hard
back, he was working. I mean, he had all the emotions, all the steps, and that he could, he could just fake and what he was doing was he was allowing that other horse to carry that load. And,
you know, the only thing he was worried about was quitting time. And when when he was going to get fit
to that wicked animal. We should be more like the animals, animals, activists, people, they was all we need to act more like the animals act. And guys,
we do act like that sometime. But I'm so glad that as I learned the Lord Jesus Christ, listen, he's not putting in, he's not putting that load on us. And listen, if you just come to him, the Bible says,
Take my yoke
that he would give you rest the rest that every one of us needs. We need rest and to our very soul,
the world's in trouble
or, and rumors of wars,
disease and pestilence,
earthquakes in diverse places and volcanoes. And and you know, it's it's just it's just getting worse.
People try to call me down by saying all it's okay. It's always been this way that calm you down.
We hear the saber rattling in the other countries. I mean, you know, just a few months ago, I really think America was thinking we're going to be in war with North Korea,
whether North Korea are we hear about Venezuela, we hear about
Syria and these wars and things are going on and and the United States is the policeman of the world. And boy, we're going to have to do something
column. Yeah, everybody call now
doesn't call me there.
But I tell you what is calling because I learned to the Lord Jesus Christ. He tells me how all this is going to end.
We can read the end of the book.
And I like what people say, we when
a man we win and Jesus Christ, we are more than conquerors. We're on the winning side. We're on the winning team. We when
the Bible tells us that one day is that the god of this world is going to be bound hand and foot he's going to be cast into the lake of fire,
that that old temper that that
that adversary are our enemy, the devil, he loses.
I got news
a family a very prominent family that used to be in this area when this town was actually growing
and was being developed
some you know, Kenny Bradshaw worked
out the power plant I guess when you guys saw him
holding a street sign some or somebody out in Tucson so I'm
if you didn't know he took his life.
His younger sister which was my age, just maybe few months older,
was watching somebody's
house in Tucson house sitting and they came home from their vacation and she was sitting on the porch and she was dead
younger brother Cory Cory, the younger brother this last year Corey took his life
the one the one child that's left got a hold of me this morning. And her son was taking pictures in a high rise building in New York City last night and Phil
to his death
and you comfort somebody like that
I can you bring comfort.
He says in verse 29, I'm almost done. Take my yoke upon you. Matthew 11, verse 29, Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek
and lowly of heart.
You know, that's the opposite of pride.
That's the opposite of the hustle bustle world. The reason I mentioned that family because I remember growing up thinking, Man, you know what, those people got it all together. Lucky was the he was the project manager is Johnny, his wife was a nurse. And I mean, it was they just were in my mind, man, that's success. Look at those people.
But I want to tell you what, the Lord was nowhere in her life.
It was not in their life. And let me ask you, is he in your life? When something happens when something that come away will come that you won't be able to carry? Are you going to? Are you going to be able to share that burden? is there is there a yoke connected to you to Jesus Christ, if you come to him,
not pride, not prideful. I'm not better you're not if you're a Christian, you're not better than anyone.
The wonderful thing that you have is you have the peace that passes all understanding in Jesus Christ. That's it.
just as I am without one please but that die blood was shed for me. Oh Lamb of God, I come
you know what religion says,
Get get in there. You get in there and you do that
or is that just the Lord saying, you know, come, come now
let us reason together
say at the Lord
learn of me. Take my yoke
Brian meek and lowly in heart and you shall
find rest on to your souls
you know the difference
and I'll tell you what we're getting hit with stuff now that we better understand the difference between hey I need a vacation hey I need an extra day off so I can rest or that you know something that was going to give rest of my soul that in my journey in life journey I'm going to be able to continue on because I'm walking side by side
with my lord and savior
you know that's what I have to offer tonight that's the good news
amen that's good news that will you know it's not bad news that's good news
that's not religion that's not did you go yesterday you're going to be there tomorrow you got you know did you punch your time clock
how many prayers Did you say
no he said come on to me
learn of me that's why we're here tonight we're learning
of the Lord Jesus Christ
Why don't we go just stand together tonight Just bow our heads for a moment
simple message Come
brother Paul which a dismissive supper
right thank you so much. Nine years ago,
when you call and you opened my eyes that I might come to you and love receive wonderful promises that only you can give. But Lord tonight as we reflect, Lord for all of our
trials are temptations Lord whatever burdens astound Lord, you know, even after having come to you and salvation, or we still need to come you daily. They are burdened as a your feet
that we might pick up your yoke
and carry your burden which is light and easy
or we just thank you for that daily offer that you provide for us. If only we'd be wise enough
to take you up on it.
We ask now that this being the beginning of a new week that Lord
lead us to walk closer with you this week, or that we might rejoice with you or that we might be a brighter light in a dark dark world
are we thank you now for your love and your precious word. Thank you. In Jesus name, amen. Hey, man, shake somebody's hand. smile
at them. Make sure we fill to walk them remember Saturday, man Saturday.
