Power of Resurrection Part 3 – Ps John Bendixen (JHB)
John 6:63 (AMPC), 63It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. There is no profit, there is no value. There is nothing in the flesh. …The words… that I have been speaking to you are spirit and they are life. Spirit is what you are. Words of life and words of truth is what changes you.
How much change are you ready to embrace?
How uncomfortable are you ready to get?
Because God is doing things in our ministry and there is a momentum and a fire and a work of God that is happening and if you are not going to go with it, you are going to trundle around in your comfort zone. And the messages that God is having me preach right now are designed to help you change where you are. This is the moment that God has chosen to preach a message through this messenger that will give you the power for change.
How much of the life of God do you want in your world? How badly do you want it, Joburg people? If God begins to speak to you to do some things differently, will you?
21Martha then said to Jesus, “Master, Master, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. 22And even now, I know that whatever you ask from God, He will grant it to you. 23Jesus said to her, your brother shall rise again. 24Martha replied, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life, I am the self-existent one, whoever believes in Me, although he may die, yet he shall live 26and whoever continues to live and believes in, and has faith in and cleaves to me shall never actually die at all. Do you believe this, Martha? She said to Him, 27Yes, Lord, I have believed. I do believe that you are the Christ (Mark 11:21-27 AMPC).
If you have anything in your life that you can look back on, and you would say, “If I had had that Word of God, or if I had had someone in my life like you or I had this or I had that and that I wouldn’t have had these things happen to me and I would have had a different outcome.” I’m here to tell you today, Do you believe in the resurrection power of the Christ, the Anointed One? Because if you believe in the Anointed One and the pre-Existent One, something is about to happen to you. Something is here even today, it has already started happening because the Word of God is here for you.
Jesus said, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on me, you would see the glory of God. I am here as a messenger of the Lord Jesus Christ today to tell you, if you will do what the Divine Being is speaking to your spirit to do, if you will obey Him and address the natural things in your life, that seem to be beyond your ability to restore. I promise you; I speak on behalf of Jesus. His Word says, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you will believe this, and you rely on Me for this, you will see the glory of God in your life. If you believe this message that I’m speaking to you, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, if you will believe this, this will change everything for you.
43And when He had said this He shouted with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out.” 44And out walked the man who had been dead, his hands and feet wrapped in burial clothes, linen strips and with a burial napkin around his face, Jesus said to them, free him of the burial wrappings and let him go (John 11:43-44 AMPC).
Lazarus, come out. What is that dead thing in your life that has got to move, it has got to shift now? It is beyond past time. It is beyond past restoration. It is supposed to be dead in the natural, there cannot be any coming back from those things. Those bad financial choices, those bad relationship choices, those things.
Oh, you say, “I don’t have anything that stinks in my life.” You may not think so but if you let the Divine Man speak to you, He will talk to you and He will show you the things that stink in your life. Those things that are beyond, past, long time ago, dead already. If you don’t think you have something that’s dead in your life, that stinks, that shows you how much deception has already crept into your life that you think you are okay. The thing that stinks in your life is your deception of how smart you are, how good you are, how well you have done, how great things have turned out for you. That deception has kept you from God, from the the purposes of God, that thing is dead and stinking
Because the Self-Existent One always does what His will says, He gets done. There is no resistance, there is nothing that He cannot do because He is the Self-Existent One. So, whether it says ‘light be’ or ‘move the waters in the seas apart’ or ‘Lazarus come out of the grave’, the power is always equal and enough to whatever the situation requires. Because the Self-Existent One is the One that makes it happen. There is no other power or will that is greater than the power and the will of the Self-Existent One.
I speak to you today. Will you move, will you move that covering that covers the grave of this stuff that stinks? Will you go open that grave? Will you let the Self-Existent One, the Divine One that is in you that has resurrection life, will you let Him speak? Will you let the promise of God be yours? I promise you, you will see the glory. I’m not speaking as me. I can’t give you anything of myself. I have no power. I’m speaking as a messenger of what God said in His Word to Martha. If you believe, I promise you, you will see the glory of God.
I am here, Joburg people, today to make a declaration to you; I declare to you today that the healing power of the resurrected Christ rests upon your bodies and the same power that raised Christ from the dead, that same power rests upon your bodies for healing. I’m here to declare today that the same power that raised Christ from the dead, the resurrection power of Christ Jesus, the Anointed One, the Messiah, restores to your life the purpose and the assignment to which God had preordained for you to walk in. It is not beyond time. This is the moment. In heavenly time, do you remember I preached some message some years ago now? Not Five Minutes Late. I mean that might be in human time two years ago, whatever it was, but I’m telling you now, it’s the same time of space in the spirit. It’s the same time-space that God is speaking now. And He’s saying, “The time has come.”
It’s time for the Father to be glorified in your life. I’m here to declare to you that those things, finances, business deals, areas of your life, that have long time been put on the shelf, long time been hidden away, put away, stuck away, long time. It’s time to roll the stone away. It’s time to let the Word of God speak to those areas, say “Come out, come out and come to life.”
This is just the beginning of what God is going to do in us because the Lord said to me, “John, the longer you preach on this, the more faith is going to come, the more the anointing is going to increase, the more this is going to have an impact on people.”
I am making declarations that the healing power of God is already at work in your bodies. The restoration power of God in relationships is already at work in your lives, the restoration of finances and things that have gone a long time; it’s time for it to wake up and to come to life. For those assignments and those purposes that have been put on the shelf and say, “I don’t want to look at it because it’s been dead and buried a long time. I can’t go back there.” It’s time to open that gravestone and let the Word of God speak.
Do you believe in this? If you believe it – raise your hand as an act of faith and say: Lord, I believe in the resurrection power of Jesus. Work in my life. Let it do its complete work in my life, in Jesus’ name.
I began to see your lives, the dead things in your lives, and I saw them one by one, get resurrected. I saw the power of God, the power of Jesus coming into your life, and raising them up from a place of death, and coming out and the next instruction was, “Take the grave clothes off because the glory of God can be seen.” These tears that you’re seeing now, these are the tears that God cried from my spirit this morning. I’m speaking to you by the Holy Spirit. If there is no message that you’ve ever received from me, if you think any of the messages I’ve preached before… I ask you to believe this one. I ask you to take this one and ask you to believe that Jesus’ resurrection power is for the glory of God is about to raise everything in your life from the dead.
