  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:02:56.270 --> 00:02:59.080
  • LET'S GO RIGHT ON BACK TO MATTHEW 11 AND 28.
  • 00:02:59.100 --> 00:03:03.290
  • I'M READING FROM THE NEW KING JAMES VERSION, AND
  • 00:03:04.010 --> 00:03:07.010
  • THESE ARE THE WORDS, THIS IS JESUS SPEAKING
  • 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:10.040
  • TO A CROWD:
  • 00:03:10.060 --> 00:03:12.090
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE COULD USE SOME REST FOR YOUR SOUL?
  • 00:03:33.100 --> 00:03:39.040
  • I COULD USE SOME EXTRA SLEEP, TOO, BECAUSE FOR
  • 00:03:39.060 --> 00:03:43.220
  • WHATEVER REASON, WHEN DADDY COMES IN TOWN, BOTH
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:47.000
  • OF MY KIDS, THEIR INTERNAL CLOCK STOPS WORKING, AND
  • 00:03:47.020 --> 00:03:50.230
  • AT 2:58 A.M., THEY WANT TO COME IN AND TALK AND SHARE
  • 00:03:50.250 --> 00:03:54.000
  • ABOUT THEIR DAY AND ABOUT CURIOUS GEORGE AND SID THE
  • 00:03:54.020 --> 00:03:57.080
  • SCIENCE KID AND NEMO WHO IS A CLOWN FISH, APPARENTLY.
  • 00:03:57.100 --> 00:04:01.250
  • SO MY SON WANTS TO TALK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:06.190
  • LIKE IT'S THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY, AND I'M LIKE,
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:09.080
  • THAT'S GOOD, SON, PRAISE THE LORD.
  • 00:04:09.100 --> 00:04:10.280
  • I WANT YOU TO GO TO SLEEP. DON'T SAY NOTHING.
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:12.170
  • I LOVE YOU, BUT YOU'RE GETTING ON MY NERVES RIGHT
  • 00:04:12.190 --> 00:04:14.060
  • NOW, PRAISE JESUS.
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:16.050
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:04:16.070 --> 00:04:17.270
  • I COULD USE SOME EXTRA SLEEP, BUT MORE THAN THAT,
  • 00:04:17.290 --> 00:04:19.220
  • I COULD USE SOME REST FOR MY SOUL.
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:23.060
  • THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SLEEP AND REST,
  • 00:04:23.080 --> 00:04:26.200
  • AND WHAT'S HAPPENING IN OUR SOCIETY IS THAT WE SEE
  • 00:04:26.220 --> 00:04:30.000
  • A LOT OF RESTLESS PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:30.020 --> 00:04:32.120
  • THEY'RE NOT JUST TIRED PHYSICALLY, THEY'RE
  • 00:04:32.140 --> 00:04:35.050
  • WEARIED SPIRITUALLY. LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION.
  • 00:04:35.070 --> 00:04:39.000
  • HAVE YOU EVER BEEN WEARY?
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:43.040
  • YOU KNOW, THIS IS A VERY DIFFICULT TIME FINANCIALLY
  • 00:04:43.060 --> 00:04:46.120
  • FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE, LIVING PAYCHECK TO
  • 00:04:46.140 --> 00:04:48.210
  • PAYCHECK, EVEN IF YOU HAVE A GOOD JOB.
  • 00:04:48.230 --> 00:04:51.280
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE SAME NEST EGG AND A
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:54.240
  • CUSHION LIKE WE'D LIKE.
  • 00:04:54.260 --> 00:04:56.150
  • I'D LIKE A MUCH BIGGER CUSHION.
  • 00:04:56.170 --> 00:04:58.190
  • THAT'S WHY I EAT THIS MUCH, SO IF I DO FALL, IT'S SOFTER.
  • 00:04:58.210 --> 00:05:02.000
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:02.020 --> 00:05:05.040
  • HOW MANY PEOPLE WISH THEY HAD A LITTLE MORE CUSHION
  • 00:05:05.060 --> 00:05:07.090
  • IN THE ACCOUNT? AMEN.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:11.200
  • AND WHEN YOU DON'T, MAYBE YOU DON'T.
  • 00:05:11.220 --> 00:05:14.260
  • MAYBE YOU'RE LIKE FULL OF FAITH ALL THE TIME AND
  • 00:05:14.280 --> 00:05:17.030
  • PRAISE GOD FOR THAT, BUT SOMETIMES I'M LOOKING AT
  • 00:05:17.050 --> 00:05:19.120
  • THOSE NUMBERS LIKE, NOW, I KNOW I HAD MORE THAN THAT
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:21.170
  • IN THERE YESTERDAY.
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.140
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:23.160 --> 00:05:26.190
  • I LOOKED AT MY ACCOUNT, I SAW THE JOINT ACCOUNT.
  • 00:05:26.210 --> 00:05:29.000
  • ME AND THE WIFE HAVE A JOINT ACCOUNT.
  • 00:05:29.020 --> 00:05:30.250
  • I'M LIKE HEY, WHAT IS THIS FROM TOYS R US.
  • 00:05:30.270 --> 00:05:34.070

  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:36.000
  • WELL, IT'S THE PULL UPS AND THE WIPES.
  • 00:05:36.020 --> 00:05:37.210
  • NO, WE CAN REUSE WIPES.
  • 00:05:37.230 --> 00:05:40.120
  • WHEN I WAS GROWING UP...
  • 00:05:40.140 --> 00:05:42.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:05:42.150 --> 00:05:44.110
  • I WAS GROWING UP, MY GRAND MOTHER WOULD RINSE OUT
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:46.060
  • PAPER TOWELS AND PUT THEM ON THE SIDE.
  • 00:05:46.080 --> 00:05:47.290
  • Y'ALL DON'T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:05:48.010 --> 00:05:49.150
  • YOU DON'T JUST THROW FOIL AWAY.
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:51.040
  • YOU CAN USE FOIL FOR LIKE WEEKS.
  • 00:05:51.060 --> 00:05:52.280
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:05:53.000 --> 00:05:55.170
  • WELL, WE NEED ZIP LOCK...
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:57.160
  • YOU DON'T NEED ZIP LOCK BAGS.
  • 00:05:57.180 --> 00:05:58.290
  • YOU NEED ONE BAG, AND ZIP AND LOCK
  • 00:05:59.010 --> 00:06:00.120
  • IT MULTIPLE TIMES.
  • 00:06:00.140 --> 00:06:02.030
  • QUIT PLAYING AROUND HERE.
  • 00:06:02.050 --> 00:06:04.120
  • NONE OF THESE KIDS HAVE JOBS, AND IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE...
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:06.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:06:06.150 --> 00:06:10.030
  • SO IT'S LIKE, DADDY, I WANT A NUTRI-GRAIN BAR.

  • YOU GOT ALL OF THIS FAITH IN HERE, AND I'M JUST

  • HE'S LIKE, DIDN'T YOU READ?
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:38.160
  • YOU'RE WORRYING ABOUT SOMETHING I

  • ALREADY TOOK CARE OF.
  • 00:06:40.290 --> 00:06:44.060
  • AND IF YOU SEEK ME AND THE KINGDOM, ALL THE THINGS
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:46.110
  • YOU NEED WILL BE...
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:48.100
  • - CONGREGATION: ADDED UNTO YOU.
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:49.230
  • - COME ON, SOMEBODY.
  • 00:06:49.250 --> 00:06:52.060
  • SO IN THE SCRIPTURE THAT WE BEGAN TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:06:52.080 --> 00:06:55.160
  • LAST WEEK IN MATTHEW 11, WE SEE JESUS TALKING TO A
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:58.280
  • CROWD OF PEOPLE FROM VARYING WALKS OF LIFE
  • 00:06:59.000 --> 00:07:02.220
  • WITHIN THE CONSTRUCT OF THIS PARTICULAR COMMUNITY.
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:06.180
  • AT THE BEGINNING OF MATTHEW 11, WE SEE JOHN
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:10.000
  • THE BAPTIST WHO IS IN PRISON SENDING SOME OF HIS
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:12.180
  • DISCIPLES TO JESUS, AND THE DISCIPLES WENT TO HIM
  • 00:07:12.200 --> 00:07:16.040
  • AND SAID, JOHN WANTS TO KNOW ARE YOU THE COMING
  • 00:07:16.060 --> 00:07:19.140
  • ONE, OR SHOULD WE LOOK FOR ANOTHER?
  • 00:07:19.160 --> 00:07:22.010
  • NOW, JOHN IS ASKING THIS QUESTION BECAUSE HE'S IN
  • 00:07:22.030 --> 00:07:25.030
  • PRISON AND ABOUT TO DIE, AND HE WANTS TO KNOW IF
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:27.100
  • HIS COUSIN IS GOING TO COME GET HIM OUT OF PRISON.
  • 00:07:27.120 --> 00:07:29.250
  • AND JESUS IS LIKE, LET JOHN KNOW WHAT YOU BOTH
  • 00:07:29.270 --> 00:07:32.260
  • SEE AND HEAR, THAT THE LAME WALK, AND THE DEAF
  • 00:07:32.280 --> 00:07:36.290
  • HEAR, AND THE BLIND EYES ARE OPENED, AND THE DEAD
  • 00:07:37.010 --> 00:07:39.270
  • ARE RAISED, AND THE GOSPEL IS PREACHED TO THE POOR,
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:42.100
  • AND BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO ARE NOT OFFENDED BY THIS.
  • 00:07:42.120 --> 00:07:44.240
  • WHAT JESUS WAS SAYING IS JOHN, YOU HAD A GREAT RUN.
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:48.130
  • YOU SET IT UP GOOD, BUT IT'S MY TURN NOW.
  • 00:07:48.150 --> 00:07:50.140
  • YOU'RE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO TRUST THE FATHER FOR
  • 00:07:50.160 --> 00:07:52.210
  • THE NEXT PHASE OF YOUR LIFE, BUT I'VE GOT
  • 00:07:52.230 --> 00:07:54.170
  • KEEP IT MOVING.
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:56.090
  • SO JESUS, IN THE CONSTRUCT OF THIS MOMENT, THEN
  • 00:07:56.110 --> 00:07:59.260
  • BEGINS TO DECLARE TO THE PEOPLE THAT JOHN --
  • 00:07:59.280 --> 00:08:03.080
  • WHO DID Y'ALL COME OUT HERE TO SEE?
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:04.290
  • JOHN IS A PROPHET, AND MORE THAN A PROPHET.
  • 00:08:05.010 --> 00:08:06.170
  • I TELL YOU, OF THOSE BORN AMONG WOMEN, THERE'S NOT
  • 00:08:06.190 --> 00:08:08.230
  • BEEN A PROPHET LIKE JOHN THE BAPTIST.
  • 00:08:08.250 --> 00:08:11.000
  • SO HE WENT ONTO HONOR JOHN.
  • 00:08:11.020 --> 00:08:13.060
  • HE WENT ONTO SPEAK LIFE, AND THEN HE SAYS, I KNOW
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:16.030
  • SOME OF Y'ALL BASICALLY ARE SAD BECAUSE JOHN'S
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:19.030
  • SITUATION LOOKS TOUGH, AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE
  • 00:08:19.050 --> 00:08:22.050
  • LOOKING TO JOHN FOR HOPE.
  • 00:08:22.070 --> 00:08:24.070
  • LET ME PAUSE RIGHT HERE BECAUSE WHAT MOST OF US
  • 00:08:24.090 --> 00:08:27.010

  • THIS IS A PROFOUND MOMENT IN JESUS' MINISTRY.
  • 00:10:32.120 --> 00:10:35.250
  • THE STATEMENT THAT HE MAKES IS NOTHING
  • 00:10:35.270 --> 00:10:38.130
  • SHORT OF SUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:10:38.150 --> 00:10:40.200
  • HE SAYS TO A CROWD WHO IS WEARY FROM RELIGION,
  • 00:10:40.220 --> 00:10:46.210
  • WEARY FROM THE PROCESS, EVERYTHING YOU'RE LOOKING

  • COULD COME TO HIM.
  • 00:11:37.190 --> 00:11:40.090

  • REVELATION THAT I WANT TO BLESS YOU WITH.
  • 00:12:52.000 --> 00:12:54.040
  • JESUS SAYS, "COME TO ME ALL YOU WHO LABOR AND ARE
  • 00:12:54.060 --> 00:12:57.240
  • HEAVY LADEN, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST."
  • 00:12:57.260 --> 00:13:03.200
  • I WILL GIVE YOU REST.
  • 00:13:03.220 --> 00:13:06.270
  • LET ME BREAK THIS DOWN BECAUSE I FOUND OUT
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:10.030
  • SOMETHING SIGNIFICANT IN THE GREEK.
  • 00:13:10.050 --> 00:13:12.030
  • WHEN JESUS WAS SPEAKING, AND HE SAYS, "I WILL GIVE
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:14.230
  • YOU REST," IT SOUNDS LIKE IN THE ENGLISH HE'S GOING
  • 00:13:14.250 --> 00:13:17.130
  • TO ACTUALLY HAND UP SOMETHING.
  • 00:13:17.150 --> 00:13:20.120
  • WELL, LET ME TELL YOU WHAT IT BREAKS DOWN TO.
  • 00:13:20.140 --> 00:13:22.120
  • WHEN HE SAYS "I", THAT WORD MEANS ME, MYSELF OR
  • 00:13:22.140 --> 00:13:25.240
  • SELF SAME, AND THEN "WILL GIVE" IS ONE WORD,
  • 00:13:25.260 --> 00:13:29.170
  • ANAPAUSO, OKAY?
  • 00:13:29.190 --> 00:13:32.250
  • ANAPAUSO, SOMETHING LIKE THAT, SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:32.270 --> 00:13:34.230
  • IT'S IN THERE, YOU CAN GO READ IT.
  • 00:13:34.250 --> 00:13:36.230
  • BUT IT'S LIKE THAT, OKAY? ANAPAUSO, OKAY?
  • 00:13:36.250 --> 00:13:39.290
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:42.000
  • CHECK THIS OUT.
  • 00:13:42.020 --> 00:13:44.070
  • I'M ABOUT TO LET YOU SEE WHAT IT MEANS "TO CAUSE OR
  • 00:13:44.090 --> 00:13:47.210
  • PERMIT ONE TO CEASE FROM ANY MOVEMENT OR LABOR IN
  • 00:13:47.230 --> 00:13:50.120
  • ORDER TO RECOVER AND COLLECT HIS STRENGTH."
  • 00:13:50.140 --> 00:13:54.190
  • NOW, THAT'S WHAT IT MEANS.
  • 00:13:54.210 --> 00:13:56.100
  • THE "WILL GIVE" MEANS THAT.
  • 00:13:56.120 --> 00:13:58.160
  • AND THEN "YOU" IN THE GREEK.
  • 00:13:58.180 --> 00:14:00.140
  • THE WORD "YOU" MEANS YOU.
  • 00:14:00.160 --> 00:14:02.280
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:03.000 --> 00:14:07.110
  • WATCH THIS.
  • 00:14:07.130 --> 00:14:09.220
  • THE WORD "REST" IS THAT WORD AGAIN ANAPAUSO,
  • 00:14:09.240 --> 00:14:13.260
  • WHICH MEANS HE'S NOT GIVING ONE REST.
  • 00:14:13.280 --> 00:14:20.140
  • HE'S GIVING YOU TWO TYPES OF REST.
  • 00:14:20.160 --> 00:14:23.170
  • WHAT HE'S SAYING IS IF YOU COME TO ME, I MYSELF WILL
  • 00:14:23.190 --> 00:14:26.130
  • GIVE YOU THE REST THAT I HAVE.
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:33.270
  • THAT WHICH I WALK IN, THE POWER THAT ALLOWS ME TO BE
  • 00:14:33.290 --> 00:14:36.110
  • PEACEFUL IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS, TO SPEAK PEACE TO
  • 00:14:36.130 --> 00:14:38.220
  • PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO KILL ME, TO HEAL PEOPLE
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:41.100
  • WHO WON'T EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE ME LATER.
  • 00:14:41.120 --> 00:14:43.180
  • I WILL GIVE YOU THAT REST, AND THEN I'M GOING TO GIVE
  • 00:14:43.200 --> 00:14:47.170
  • YOU ANOTHER REST, THE SELF SAME SPIRIT WHICH
  • 00:14:47.190 --> 00:14:50.170
  • IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:52.120
  • SO NOT ONLY WILL I GIVE YOU THE SPIRIT THAT I WALK
  • 00:14:52.140 --> 00:14:55.060
  • IN, I'LL TRADE YOUR BURDENS FOR MY PEACE.
  • 00:14:55.080 --> 00:14:58.290
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:14:59.010 --> 00:15:06.020
  • ANYBODY GOT SOMETHING THEY NEED TO TRADE?

  • DEVELOPMENT, THEY DIDN'T REALIZE HOW
  • 00:15:23.010 --> 00:15:24.170
  • GOOD THEIR LUNCH WAS.
  • 00:15:24.190 --> 00:15:26.090

  • YOU GAVE THEM SOMETHING YOU DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:16:04.120 --> 00:16:05.270
  • IN THE FIRST PLACE. WATCH THIS.
