Matthew 11.  "Life Different? Sunday August 13, 2017, 11am.
 
Do we, ever look, at our life, and question, what could I, have done better, or different? I, find, a lot of people, on face book, ask why is my life this way? I, am in so much, mental stress, that I, cannot stand it. If our life, is not what we would want it to be, what can we do? First, through prayer, for understating, we must check, the word of GOD. Starting, with what Jesus, says in Matt 11:28 Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, I will give you rest.
 
If, we are unhappy, with our life, it is because, we are seeking, earthly pleasures. Jesus, tells us, in Matthew 6:33, seek ye first the kingdom of GOD and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
 
   John the Baptist, was in a real state, of confusion.  He had, not too many days ago, been called by GOD, to boldly declare, that Jesus, is the lamb of GOD; who taketh away, the sins of the world.  He was serving, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, yet, he was in prison, and GOD seemed to ignore, his plight.
 
  Tradition, always said, the savior, would be a great warrior, but the Bible, taught, that Jesus, was to suffer and die, for all the sins, of those, who accepted him as savior. The Bible, teaches that even, a great prophet like John should know, that he is not, exempt from, suffering in this world. 1 Peter 4: 12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you
 
We, should do, as John did, he turned, to Jesus and Jesus told John, to look at the scriptures, to see if, they are being fulfilled, by Jesus’ ministry. We, see the fulfilmen,t of Isaiah, happening right before, John=s eyes.
 
Isaiah 42 7To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. 9Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them
