(KJV.) ST. JOHN 11:25-26
(25) Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
(26) And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
Brethren, many times, we have tried to decipher the code of our Father, to know how he engineers all things together from heavenly places to manifest on earth; however, no one knows the wisdom of his works; therefore, at times, when the plans of humanity do not work out favorably, in ways which they ought to work, we take matters into our own hands, try to rebel, to points whereby unconsciously, we might strive against our maker; today, Jesus Christ is saying to humanity, trust me, put all your fears and anxieties to rest, relax, have peace within yourselves, there is nothing to worry about, all is well; be peaceful!
In the above chapter, in a nutshell, Lazarus, the brother of Martha, had fallen sick and died, buried in the grave for four days already before Jesus got there; when Martha saw Jesus, she said to him, Lord, if you have been here, my brother would not have died: Jesus said unto her; "Thy brother shall rise again."; however, this is not the reply Martha expected from Jesus, therefore, she answered; "I know that he will rise up again in the resurrection at the last day.": Jesus said, (i) I am the resurrection and the life: let us ponder on this fragment of his statement, Jesus claimed to be the resurrection and the life; it this truly? I will say yes, it is true! Fruit of thoughts, when Jesus made this statement, he was still alive, not yet crucified to die, resurrect from the tomb; however, he came to earth, as the light of life, therefore, in himself, he has the capability as a Light of life, to resurrect the dead back to life; cf. John 1:4; before he was crucified, died and rose again from the dead by the same resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; inferentially, the Light force came out of his mortal body while he hanged on the cross, stepped aside, waited for three days, for the prophecy to be fulfilled, entered his mortal body on the third day, Jesus woke up from his sleep; subsequently, the same Light force of life, which rose Jesus again from the dead, in the same manner, will resurrect sleeping souls back to life on the day of reconciliation, some unto damnation, while others unto life everlasting; there is no doubt about this: believe it or not!
Dearly beloved, there is nothing to fear about death if we are in Jesus Christ; when we die, we are not really dead but sleeping in the graveyards until the day of reconciliation, when trumpets will sound in heavenly places, the dead in Christ will rise first, then, souls that are alive and remaining on the earth, will catch together with them in the clouds, to meet with Jesus Christ in the skies, be with him forever and evermore: therefore, let us be readily prepared to meet with him, he is coming back again soon! Amen and Amen!
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) I Thessalonians 4:14: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
