Topic: NOT UNTO DEATH
Text: John 11:1, 3-4
📖1….”Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
📖3….Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.
📖4….When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is NOT UNTO DEATH, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.”
🔥As avowed believers, we don’t need to fret over either sicknesses or apparent danger that are no longer unto death, because Jesus died for our sicknesses and dangers. In Isaiah 38:1, God sent a message of death to Hezekiah when he was sick, that he was going to die. He was then instructed to put his house in order. But instead of death, fifteen years were added to his life by same God that said Hezekiah would die. What a merciful God that allows his mind to be changed because of compassion. Who told you that you can’t change God’s mind regarding that impending calamity? You can!
🔥🔥When Jesus received a distress call from Bethany that Lazarus was sick, he told his disciples on hearing this that, the sickness of Lazarus wasn’t unto death, but later, Lazarus died and was buried. The irony here is that the one God pronounced death sentence on, didn’t die, but the one Jesus said wasn’t unto death, was the one that died. Since God’s word doesn’t fail, the dead Lazarus had to come back to life after four days to have Jesus’ word of NOT UNTO DEATH in John 11:4, fulfilled.
🔥🔥🔥Beloveth, satan is very crafty…Genesis 3:1. He knew Jesus loved Lazarus because he was sowing into Jesus’ ministry. So, it was the desire of the devil that he be sick, die, and be buried so that Jesus’ divine helper would be lost. Meanwhile, Jesus had said it wasn’t unto death. If Christ had be complacent about going to Bethany because he had decreed not unto death verdict, Lazarus wouldn’t have been resurrected. Thank God for Jesus’ arrival. He will arrive to save you from premature death, from accidents, from robbery attacks, from your distressed marriage, and from all secret evil plots of the enemy. All the plans of the enemy to have you buried this year, shall end in God’s praise. If Lazarus came out from the grave, because he sowed into Jesus’ ministry, you will also come out from all problems as a sower too. That sickness, poison, midnight attacks, bad dreams and nightmares, curses from enemies, are NOT UNTO DEATH.
🙏Heavenly Father, make it impossible for me to die by man’s desires, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, like Lazarus, may I never encounter the sickness that is unto death, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Caring Father, don’t allow the enemy to kill my destiny helpers, in Jesus’ name.
