Matthew 26-31-46 Gethsemane Audio- Have you ever been to a good meeting and promised the Lord you were going to do better from here on, but only to find in a short time you failed the Lord again? What brings us to the place we never fail the Lord? The disciples of Jesus acquired that place. They literally laid down their lives for the Lord Jesus Christ. Gethsemane – do I have “Gethsemanes”? What is my Gethsemane? Who do I battle in Gethsemane, the devil or myself? What do I do in Gethsemane, pray or sleep? Judas came with a kiss. Have you had a Judas? Have you been a Judas? Who really smote the Lord? Was it the devil, Rome, the Jews, or someone else?
Matthew 26-31-46 Gethsemane Audio
Matthew 26:31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. 32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. 33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
Matthew 26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. 37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. 38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. 39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy. 44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.
