When The Power of Resurrection Shows Up
In the gospel according to St. John chapter 11, a family very close to our Lord Jesus Christ had lost their beloved brother – Lazarus – to death. By the time Christ arrived at the scene, the man had already been dead for four days. As expected, Lazarus’ relatives had already lost all hope and had buried their brother, having the whole family and their friends weeping and mourning.
Upon arrival of Jesus, the weeping and sorrow continued as normal. He, knowing what He would do, attempted to calm them down and told that their brother would rise again. Of course, they haven’t experience that before and could not imagine how that could happen.
Jesus even introduced Himself saying in Jn. 11:25, “I am the resurrection and the life; He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live” but they did not get what He was saying.
Glory be to God however, Jesus, the Resurrection Himself, showed brought Lazarus back to life from death. “… He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”” John 11:43 NKJV
Hallelujah, we see here that even death could not stop Jesus from being glorified.
I therefore, claim that, ‘when the power of resurrection (JESUS) shows up, your life can never remain the same; You will begin to experience outstanding turn around and miracles.
The manner in which God is going to wrought miracles in your life is going to be supernatural. See verse 44; can you imagine how Lazarus came forth with his hands and feet still tied? Isn’t that wonderful?
For anyone who remains in situations that make you weep, afraid and void of the power of God, experiencing Satanic reign and oppression continuously, I say to you that when Jesus shows up, all those troubles will be removed.
The disciples too were experiencing various troubles after Jesus had risen and left them, but when He, the Resurrection and Life, showed up again in their midst, their situation changed. May the power of Resurrection show up in your life today in Jesus name.
All Jesus is asking is that you believe. He says, “… if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” John 11:40 NKJV
When this power of resurrection shows up in your life:
Mary and Martha’s weeping, worry, and hopelessness of Lazarus’ family were removed.
Jesus will show up in your life. Note that He did not only show up in the life of Lazarus, but this power showed up to raise Him when people crucified Jesus Himself. So it is a power that He has used for others and Himself. Therefore, this power can work for you too. That’s why Apostle Paul purposed to know Him and the power of His resurrection (Philippians 3:10)
When Resurrection power showed up in the case of Disciples:
• Weeping stopped – Jn. 20: 11-18
• Fear was removed and replaced with peace – Jn. 20:19, & 2 I
• Joy was restored – Jn. 20:20
• One would experience authentic commissioning – Jn. 20:21
• One would receive the breadth of the Holy Spirit – Jn. 20:22
He gives a second chance
The power of resurrection showed up in the sea, the fish vomited Jonah – as God gave him a second chance to do His will – Jonah 2: 10.
May He show up in your life, family, situation and church today to give you the second chance that will deliver you into the fulfillment of God’s will. May the power of resurrection bring you out of every fish that has swallowed you. God has made you to be a person of destiny and fulfillment; nothing will ever keep you bound again. The Resurrection and Life will show up for you.
