SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. John 11:1
Sometimes we have a problem separating the God from the humanity of Jesus, although He was fully God, He was also fully human! His emotions were human as well as His five senses and He felt pain just as we do as in the story of His friend, Lazarus who died and Jesus was saddened.
The sisters of Lazarus sent word to Jesus that he was sick and asked that He come and pray for him. When Jesus heard the message He said, "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God." Jesus walked and lived in the same faith that He has given us, not in His divinity did He heal and deliver, but by the same faith that God used to create when He spoke into existence, the entire universe!
Jesus waited two more days before He went to Lazarus and when He got to his home, he was already dead. Everyone was mourning and some were questioning His ability to heal when He said, "Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him." Jesus went to the tomb and said, "Take away the stone" and his sister said that he was in the grave for four days and He said to her that if she would believe she would see the glory of God and then He said, "Lazarus, come forth!"
"I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. "And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" John 11:25,26
