 “Let God Arise and let His enemies be scattered”......Psalm 68:1

 


 Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.” When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” John 11:40-43 NIV " Celebrating 26 years of service to Jesus Christ since September 1992".


Amazingly we’ve come to the close of another year and so I wish everyone a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a most Prosperous 2019 New Year!

 

You may be wondering why I picked the story of Lazarus for an end of the year newsletter. Simply, I believe the Lord wants us to experience the glory of God. This does not mean that we will not face hard and difficult situations along the way but interestingly in this passage of scripture I noticed several attitudes the Lord would like to share with us 1) This situation was completely and utterly dead and to the natural man or woman there was no hope 2) Not only was the situation hopeless but buried and covered over with a stone to seal the helplessness of the situation 3) Those standing around offered not one shred of help or any form of encouragement. Then Jesus who loved Mary, Martha and Lazarus shows up and in the midst of a dark and hopeless situation Jesus speaks truth, faith and calls death back to life through life and resurrection power 1) Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God. 2) Jesus faced the situation and looked up and prayed, Father, I thank you that you have and always hear me 3) Jesus in a loud voice called and commanded that which was completely dead to life and to come forth.

 

When faced with impossible situations do not react out of the flesh but rather respond in the Spirit by faith. Remember that Jesus Christ the Son of God lives within each of us who believe in Him (Galatians 2:20, 2 Corinthians 3:16-18). Do not focus on the obstacles but rather lift your eyes to heaven and pray to Him who always hears your prayers with an attitude of Thanksgiving. Do not listen to the nay Sayers who are not listening to the Lord but are on the contrary being used by the enemy. And finally with a loud voice command whatever the situation may be to receive resurrection life and allowing others to see God’s glory and to believe in Jesus Christ whom God sent into the world to save us all. Jesus Christ is the Hope of Glory! In Christ's Agape Love, Tom & Beth
