SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him and let him go." John 11:44
This story is personal for me because not long after I was saved I went back into the world of business and began to make money and it began to grab my heart! There is nothing wrong with good honest work and it is not a sin to make a good living, except when it consumes your mind and heart and takes away from your relationship with God.
One morning praying in my office with a friend of mine the Lord Jesus spoke to me in the spirit and said to me, "Come with Me!" I said, "Where?" He said go to an old cemetery in Aurora, Texas not far from my office. I knew it well because we would skip school and go there and so when we drove up to the old iron gated entrance the sign read, " I am the resurrection and the life he who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live." John 11:25
We pulled in and stopped at a shelter where the Lord compared me with Lazarus coming out of the grave, bound with grave clothes that represented the worries and cares of this life and then He said to me, "Choose this day whom you will serve, Me or the world." I answered and said, "You Lord!" When I got back to the office there was a constable there who served me papers and I went bankrupt for a half million dollars for unpaid bills accumulated from my drug and alcohol addictions!
"I call Heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live." Deuteronomy 30:1
