  • William savoy for verse 12
    1. John the Baptist broke into a situation and took over -

    like robbing a bank.

    2. An inmate cleverly breaks through security - escapes -

    and is out of prison.

    3. From the 1920's to 1960's someone came to Hollywood -

    broke through the difficulties - and became the owner of a

    studio - such as Warner Brother's or Paramount - or just

    became Elvis or the Beatles.

    4. With your faith - break through your limitations -

    break into heaven - and possess its treasures and blessings.

    5. Look beyond your difficulties. See heaven. Be in it.

    Walk as if you own it.
  • G Hillman for verse 12
    I believe the end times we are in the Lord is telling us we need to fight a great spiritual fight against our enemy the devil. We need to fight to keep our faith, fight to keep our salvation and be warriors. We need to put on the full armor of God that we may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. This armor is powerfully given to us by our Lord Jesus and described fully in Ephesians 6:10-18 by the Apostle Paul who had the spirit of God.
  • Jesse for verse 12
    Yes, I also get a sense that we are getting close to the end. And I agree that we are to stand against the wiles of the devil. But I don't think we need to fight Satan. He's already been defeated. Jesus defeated him in the wilderness when Satan tried to tempt Him, and He ultimately defeated him at the cross. You describe the armor of God as being powerful, and I completely agree with you on that. If we have put this armor on, how can Satan possibly defeat us? In order for him to defeat us, he would have to defeat Christ.

    Putting on the whole armor of God means we put on Christ. He is our armor. That armor never comes off. He lives in us. All we have to do is stand, not fight. We don't have to fight Satan to keep our salvation. Satan cannot take our salvation from us. In order for him to do that, he would have to penetrate God's Spirit that dwells in us, and he can't do that. There is no need to fight him. He can touch our flesh, but he can't touch our spirit where Christ dwells. John 4:4 says greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world. There's no need to fight. Stand, don't fight!
  • Jesse for verse 12
    Sorry, I meant 1 John 4:4.

    This passage encouraged me to write this on FB: This message is a shout-out to my children, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends on FB who have shared with grace. God is in your life. Your pictures, your prayers, your request for prayer, your quotes, jokes, and pokes, as you have taken the yoke of Jesus. Matthew 11:29 All indicative of sharing God's Grace. What you dominate in life, shell --- becomes your norm. "A thought from the seat of my soul." "Let the circle be unbroken."

    The modern world has not acquired that unlimited spirit of faith but here and there throughout the world we see a soul coming to maturity in faith. John G Lake.
  • Faustino Wilson
    I agree, more people are coming to believe in GOD and of Jesus Christ and of the Holy Spirit, around the world. I don't know if my reply is right. but that is what I believe in my heart, and see. there is no other God but GOD who is in Heaven. Amen and our Lord Jesus Christ who payed with his blood in the Cross for our Sin. and The Holy Spirt. Amen

    Jesus said: "Ye shall find rest unto your souls..." not your body the body can be weak and weary while the soul is at rest with God.
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Thus fulfilling Isaiah 11:10. No more sabbath days Jesus is now our rest as we rest in his words. The sabbath day was a day for man to rest from their labour and sin, when you are resting your not sinning. Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

    So a pedophile and a rapist soul rest with god????
  • Job
  • Linda
    J, if the pedophile and or rapist obeys the scripture and takes his yoke upon him and learns of him if they "harness" up with God, if they get saved, then the former pedophile and former rapist can find rest for their soul. The "rest" for the soul comes after the obedience.
  • Linda
    Evangelist, I agree about the Sabbath day. I don't even remember the whole statement question I responded to but I think it had something to do with someone's claiming that Jesus contradicted himself by stating one could take a yoke on, which is may be heavy, and not be tired, and I was letting it be known that the soul can rest even if the body is tired, not referring to any particular day.
  • Pat
    Sue, the Son of Man is our Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew chapter 11:19.
  • Nathan Gough
    The "Son Of Man" is Jesus Christ himself. He is referring to himself, and then goes on to expound on what the people accused him of, just as they accused John the Baptist in the previous verse (18). Starting in vs. 20, Jesus begins to upbraid the cities because they repented not. Contrary to modern Church Doctrine, Jesus is not a "friend of publicans and sinners" as seen in these verses. Repent
  • Sue
    Who is the Son of Man in verse 19?
  • Martha
    I believe the Son of man refers to Jesus. He was born of a women Mary but, he was also spirit, The Christ, the son of the Living God.
  • Susan Wolfe
    Thank You.

    28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (work /job ,football, basket ball, education, vacation, night life /clubs, parties, social media, nascar racing, television, slothfulness /lazy, ..., ..., is USA idols we use instead of verse 28; "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest".
  • Ivy Johnson
    Christians are reluctant to take a stand for the Gospel. Unlike people of religions! We have a Relationship with our God. When the Gospel is trodden down, the Violent, Christians Speaks out on behalf on God. We will not kill anyone who disagree with the God or His Holy Scriptures. We should not sit idly by and allow the enemies of God to deface or mocked the Scriptures. Stand up for Righteousness.

    Believe the revelation that God reveals to you by whatever and whomever he reveals it. Trust in Him and lean not to your own understanding. Acknowledge him in the revealing and receive the knowledge and the power in getting to know who and what he is to you. That's how you get your rest cause you learn of and how to use the power of the lord from the revealing to His Glory.
  • Lilian
    Take my yoke upon you and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall fine rest unto your soul amen thank you Jesus i love you and i have accepted you as my Savior my Jehova Jireh the Lord my provider Shalom amen
  • Navin kumar Erpulla
    It is contrasting statement by Jesus, when he says take my yoke and you will find rest in your soul, how can a man take a yoke and find rest, but i think what Jesus might have mean was, though my yoke is heavy but the burden is light and hence come unto me i will give you rest, Thats what we are missing these days we abstain Jesus from any involvement in our life, we must realize putting God first in our life, and hence he requires total surrender.

    Gazz, The kingdom of Heaven refers to Christ's Kingdom on earth and how the prophets were beaten and slain. The violence is on earth not in Heaven. John the Baptist represents a change from prophesying about Christ to revealing Christ.
  • Trudy carlson
    I give all my worries concerns and burdens to him - he's right! Blessed is our savior protector Jesus. thank you Jesus
  • Audra Seay
    I like your questions CMS. We are supposed to learn about Jesus and from Jesus however and whomever he uses to teach us.
  • Gazz
    What does it verse 12 mean, there is violence in heaven, the violent take it by force???
  • CMS
    Are we supposed to learn ABOUT Jesus
    or From Jesus ?
  • Martha
    Hello CMS We should do both. You should learn of Jesus in order to understand him. He was, is, and always will be the way shower. Jesus taught and is still teaching us how to deal with life. There is no problem that we have that Jesus didn't endure,but he gave us the answers.
