Resurrection and the life! Finally, peace forever!

A. Main scriptures for this study: John 11:25-27

1.  Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life.

    He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.

    Do you believe this? John 11:25-26

2. She says to him: Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world. John 11:27

*** Understand what says in these scriptures:

   a. It is --> She says to him!  Not an answer!  She does not understand what Jesus was saying!

      Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world!

   b. Same saying with what Peter said in Matt.16:17

*** Jesus asked his disciples: Who do you say I am? Matt.16:15   Peter answered: You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Matt.16:16

       Jesus replied: Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. Matt.16:17

*** From the above we have normal human way of conversation!  It was asked, answered and replied!

      Yes, Martha believes Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God!  She does not believe what Jesus said about his dead brother Lazarus!

3. Jesus showed her what did he mean? John 11:43-44

    Jesus called in a loud voice: Lazarus, come out!  (Lazarus was lay dead in the tomb 4 days!)

    The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.

    Jesus said to them: Take off the grave clothes and let him go. John 11:44

4. Yes, literally this what Jesus mean!

    He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.

B. Jesus said: I am the resurrection and the life!

1.  Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—

    those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned. John 5:28-29

*** Yes, bodies may be buried in tombs or graves but they can hear his voice and come out!

    They never die! Only quietly waiting to go to heaven or to hell!

2. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. Matt.27:52

3. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people. Matt.27:53

C. Lazarus and the rich man died? Lk.16:22

1. The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried. Lk.16:22

2. And in Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torments, and see Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. Lk.16:23

3. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water,

    and cool my tongue; for I am in anguish in this flame. Lk.16:24

4. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime received thy good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things:

    but now here he is comforted, and thou art in anguish. Lk.16:25

5. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, that they that would pass from hence to you may not be able,

    and that none may cross over from thence to us. Lk.16:26

*** Dead men were talking to each other in paradise and Hades!

   They never die!  Only quietly waiting to go to heaven or hell forever!

D. Good news for the dead in Christ! 1Thes.4:16-18

1. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:

   and the dead in Christ shall rise first; then we that are alive, that are left, shall together with them be caught up in the clouds,

   to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1Thes.4:16-17

2. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1Thes.4:18

E. Conclusion: Rev.22:11-12

1. Yes, finally, all is peace!!!  Either peacefully waiting to go to heaven or go to the lake of fire forever!

2. No one quarrels, no fight no killing, no war, no revolution, no protest, no rioting, no death!

3. When the human body is dead, everyone settle with his share of eternal life!

4. Absolute wonderful!  All suffering people suffer in peace!  All happy people enjoy happiness in peace!

    Finally! Peace forever!

May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with the saints. Amen. Rev.22:21   Preach this September 19, 2021.
