"THE SLEEPING DISCIPLES"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

Mat 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.
Mat 26:37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
Mat 26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
Mat 26:39 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.
Mat 26:40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

JESUS FOUND THEM SLEEPING, NOT WATCHING AND NOT PRAYING.

Mat 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

JESUS WAS TRYING TO GET THEM TO UNDERSTAND THAT THEY WERE AT RISK WHILE THEY WERE IDLE. WE ARE AT HIGH RISK WHEN WE BECOME IDLE. WE MUST BE IN CONSTANT PRAYER, ALWAYS WATCHING. OUR INWARD MAN IS WILLING, BUT THE OUT FLESH IS WEAK.
Mar 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.


Mat 26:42 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.
Mat 26:43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
Mat 26:44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
Mat 26:45 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.

ONE OF THESE DAYS IT WILL BE ALL OVER. WE WILL TAKE OUR REST, BUT WHO WILL BE BETRAYED? I AM AFRAID IT WILL BE THOSE THAT WE NEVER MENTIONED JESUS TO. THOSE THAT WE JUST LET FALL BY THE WAYSIDE. WE WILL TAKE OUR REST, THEY WILL BE DOOMED FOR A LAKE OF FIRE!!!

THEY, WHO..... ARE..... THEY?
