Say What?!? - Escaping Death?
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
27 She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
Good evening everybody!
I hope you’ve been making good use of your time by spending it with family and getting more in tune with God in this season. I’ve really enjoyed this teaching because it’s helped us look at the greater context of Scripture.
Today, I want to look at something all of us are faced with: Death. Tonight, I want to talk to you about Escaping Death.
In the news lately, all we’ve heard about is the mortality rate of the corona virus. People always seem to panic when they are faced with the possibility of death.
The stark reality is this: Ten out of ten people die! It’s not a matter of if, but when. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 9:27 “It is appointed unto man once to die, and then the judgement.”
It is here that we have a conflict, because in the text we’re confronted with what seems to be a contradicting statement from Jesus. It’s here that Jesus says “He who believes in me will never die.”
Wait a minute……. say what?
In our passage, we are dealing with the death of a friend: Lazarus. He had died, and it seemed insensitive that Jesus had delayed His coming. Mary and Martha has expressed the fact that they wanted Jesus to come to him. But now, it had been four days!
It seemed that Lazarus was dead. Yet Jesus uses this passage to talk about the resurrection. Let’s see what type of insight we can learn from this particular passage.
The Origin of Death
- The Garden of Eden
- The Lie of Satan
- Separation from God
The Dual Nature of Death
- Physical Death
- Spiritual Death
- The Case of Lazarus
The Plan of Life
- His intention was eternal life.
- It comes from belief in Him.
