I SHALL NOT DIE AGAIN
But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, 11 because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus (John 12:10-11)
BIBLE READING John 10:10, John 11:1, Psalm 34:19, John 12:1-2, Isaiah 54:17, Ephesians 2:6, Nahum 1:9
Whatever the intention of the devil against you will not prosper because your righteous position in Christ qualify you eternally for Him to deliver you from every evil situation and guard you against future attacks.
John 11 records the raising of Lazarus from death by Jesus after he was buried for four days in a small village of Bethany. Jesus power over death and the grave was manifested to bring the one who he loves back to live to continue his purpose in life. You will bear with me this news of Lazarus being alive again spread through the land like wild fires that the Pharisaic system couldn’t stand the exponential growth of Jesus ministry and therefore has to find ways to attack Him and to also kill Lazarus.
Lazarus death was as a result of a particular ailment scripture did not mention. He became sick and died through that sickness. The source of this sickness was actually not from God, it is an act of Satan to prematurely take him away from his destiny. He came to steal kill and destroy, but Jesus says, I have come to give you abundant life till it overflows. That is the life God want for you and you must so desire to experience abundant life. alleluia! (John 10:10) There are all kinds of diseases sent against humanity to render many powerless, dysfunctional in society. Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha. (John 11:1) The same situation Lazarus and his family who were good friends of Jesus might be your experience too. The purpose of God shall always be seen in our tight spaces. Scripture records that, all things work together for our good. If Scripture says that, I believe to be true and therefore not to be moved by your current situation. God is gonna come through for you, real good. I mean too good to be true. Praise God!
The honeymoon celebration of Martha and Mary receiving their brother back to live was almost short-lived. The devil always releases his best arsenals against you on a verge of a miracle or after a major breakthrough. Can you imagine Lazarus sharing his experience with the body of believers and an instant popularity and fame throughout Bethany and even to Jerusalem? He was really living his moment of being a testament to the glory of God. After you being through it all; the divorce, surgery, bankruptcy, sicknesses, ministerial failures and all life valleys and been lifted from the miry clay and set on the rock to stand, you can still smell the scent of the past laying it’s icy hands on you.
My good friend, Your Bible says ‘Many are the afflictions of the righteous; But the Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; Not one of them is broken (Psalm 34:19) Whatever is the intention of the devil against you will not stand because your righteous position in Christ qualify you eternally for Him to deliver you from every evil situation and guard you against future attack. Fill your mouth with thanksgiving and see your fears turn to rejoicing. You are activating heavens interference on your behalf and the behalf of your family. He brought you out of death in style? He will keep you in perfect peace. Let not your heart be troubled.
You’re key to thwarting the plot, from Greek bouleuo; which conveys an idea of planned, take counsel, determine, a resolve, planned together to fulfill a purpose is to be conscious of your position in Christ daily. You life, business, family etc. is the subject of the devils attack, but you are already a conqueror through Christ Jesus.
You are the righteousness of God, and therefore no weapon formed against you shall prosper. (Isaiah 54:17) Listen, the greatest work of redemption is your position with Jesus in the heavenly places. Your life is hidden in Christ in His unapproachable light. Satan dare not touch the temple of God. Ephesians 2:6 And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
Did you catch the revelation precious one? The plot against Lazarus never went beyond the planning stage. The reason being Lazarus close connectedness with Jesus! Lazarus sat at table with Jesus while this demonic plot was in the air but the good thing is “Who he was with was a determinant factor”. There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. (John 12:1-2)
He was with the mighty warrior and great I am. He was therefore guaranteed of perfect victory without him having to know what the devil is doing. Friend, what the devil does should not bother you and tickle you a bit. You have the whole heavenly army behind you through Jesus Christ. What a privilege to have in Jesus. Isn’t it beautiful and glorious to have a good God who knows being His ambassadors and holding a ministry of reconciliation Satan will attack us and therefore set us higher above all power, rulers, dominion, principalities through Christ. Therefore we are not afraid of ten thousands of the enemy that plot against us.
Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead,[a] whom He had raised from the dead
You’ve seen death, tasted pain and predicament, been through the valleys and high waters of life. It’s too late Devil with your diabolical plans, He has brought you UP to STAY on top. You can only expect the Lords goodness to keep you whole; nothing missing, nothing broken. What do you conspire against the LORD? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time. (Nahum 1:9)
