There is a magnificent example we can all learn from the case of Lazarus encountering Jesus the resurrection and Life in this season of waiting and watching to see God move, where some are wondering about God’s love for us in the midst of the chaos.
When you read that story of Lazarus carefully in John 11 it is said;
“Now Jesus Loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was,” John 11:5-6 emphasis added.
The word therefore in the above verses suggests the reason for his waiting. Because He loved Lazarus he protracted the waiting period so Lazarus could experience him as the resurrection and life.
I see life and resurrection welling up for the nations.
I AM Now Restoring Your Family Relationships…
In an encounter with The LORD, I was shown a believer. A lot of jealousy surrounded her from her loved ones, even though she had the Christ kind of Love towards them.
I saw arrows of rejection, envy, hatred that were thrown at her, but suddenly I saw the favour of God arisen on her and instead of the evil arrows, I started seeing kind words from her relations coming to her, and I heard The LORD say, “I AM now restoring your family relationships. My Favour and Glory is arisen on you, and your loved ones are returning because of My Love and Favour upon you!”
“The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, The City of The LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Isreal. Whereas Thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations,” Isaiah 60:14-15.
I AM Outpouring The Blessing Of The Spirit…
I had two concurrent encounters with The LORD. In one I saw a believer who went out to preach and proclaimed the blessing of God upon the people.
Suddenly, I saw an eruption of The Spirit of The LORD poured out upon the hearers, even on those who seemingly were stout-hearted towards the message.
In the other encounter, I saw a believer who was about to go out for a meeting. Before he would go, I saw that the blessing from The LORD and meant for that occasion, had been relinquished to him, for him to take his place at the meeting.
Coming out these two concurrent encounters The Holy Spirit led me to Galatians 3:14-15.
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith,” Galatians 3:14-15 emphasis added.
And The LORD said to me, “Say to My Body, ‘I became a curse that the nations should receive the Blessing of Abraham which is the promised Holy Spirit.
Do not be afraid, for I AM with you in this, the blessing I have relinquished to you. As you go out to minister the blessing to the nations, you will experience the out-pouring of My Spirit in unprecedented ways this time!
I AM outpouring The Blessing of The Spirit!’ ”
Blessings in Christ,
