Lazarus Raised from the Dead
38 Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. 39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.”
Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” 41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying.[a] And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.” 43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” 44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
CONSIDER THIS SCRIPTURE FOR YOUR LIFE (IN THE SPIRIT)…. WHEN YOU FIRST COME TO JESUS CHRIST, YOUR DEAD IN SINS…THEIR IS A HARD STONE OVER THE TOMB OF YOUR HEART (BUT WHEN YOU PRAY TO JESUS AND REPENT, THE STONE IS ROLLED AWAY FROM THE TOMB OF YOUR HEART) THATS WHY “MAN” HAD TO REMOVE THE STONE..JESUS WANTS US TO MEET HIM HALF WAY :), THEN THE MIGHTY KING CALLS YOUR NAME AND SAYS…”COME FOURTH. THEN LIKE LAZERUS… YOU COME FOURTH, NOW THE “STRIPS” OF GRAVE CLOTHES ARE “LOOSED” OFF OF YOU!! EACH STRIP OF TOMB CLOTHES REPRESENT CURSES, SICKNESS, ANGER, DEPRESSION, ADDICTION, LUST, GREED ECT… AS YOU WALK CLOSER AND CLOSER WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THE “TOMB CLOTHING OR CURSES AND STRONGHOLDS” WILL CONTINUE TO LOOSE AND FALL OFF OF YOU!! AND I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST… IF YOU CONTINUE READING, AFTER LAZERUS IS LOOSED AND FREE, YOU FIND HIM “EATING” WITH JESUS 🙂 HAVE YOU BEEN LOOSED? ARE YOU EATING WITH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST? (READ REVELATION 3:20) YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON SOOOO MUCH JOY AND BLESSINGS BY REMAINING IN THE “TOMB”… SO AWAKE THOU THAT SLEEPEST AND RISE FROM THE DEAD! AND JESUS CHRIST SHALL GIVE THEE LIGHT!
