Power of Resurrection Part 3 – Ps John Bendixen (WTB)
Scripture reference: John 6:63 (AMPC); John 5:26-30 (AMPC); John 11:21-44 (AMPC)
Hallelujah, hallelujah. Praise You, Jesus. Praise You, Lord Jesus. Praise the Lord. Praise Your Name, Jesus … picking up a little bit please [Pastor John speaking to the band] Thank You, Lord, thank You, Jesus. Praise You, Jesus. Praise You, Jesus. Praise You, Jesus. Hallelujah. Glory, to Jesus. Hallelujah.
It is my prayer Father, that as Your Word goes out to Your people today, that the truth of Resurrection Power, the glory of Your Resurrection Power, the knowledge of Your Resurrection Power, the greatness of who You are, will be known by Your people, and they will receive it, Father, they will receive it in their hearts, and they will receive it into their lives. Hallelujah. I pray that every confusing thought, in every chaotic emotion, is calmed down, and that does not conflict and compete with the Word of God as it is spoken, today Father. Hallelujah. Thank You, Lord. Amen. Amen. Amen. You may be seated. Thank you, Jesus. Praise You, Lord. Praise Jesus. Glory to God.
John chapter six, verse 63, says, 63 It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-Giver]; the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words or (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life. (John 6:63 AMPC) And so today, it is my desire that you will receive the Words of Spirit and Life today. The words of men, the words of human beings have no power, they have no ability to change anything. Only the Words of God. Only the Words of life. Only the Spirit of God has the ability to change anything. Hallelujah. Praise Jesus.
It is an extraordinary thing, that you and I, as human beings, that have an intellect, and that can experience emotions, that you and I can be the vessels in which we have the very living Christ. It is an extraordinary, divine thing, that as a human being, God Himself lives in you. This is not blasphemy. This is the truth. The very God of the universe lives in you. He lives in your spirit.
As we go about our daily lives every day, every single morning, every single day, every single night, your human being, the human part of you, wants to live in a realm of senses and wants to naturally feel comfortable in the realm of intelligence and control and planning and emotions and experience, and have its needs to be taken care of. But the divine nature that is inside of you calls every single day, to eternity. It calls every single day to purpose. Calls every single day, it calls you to assignment, to the extent that you choose to live in your emotions and your intellect, and do not permit the life of God to come out, is the extent to which you limit everything in your world. You and me both. This is not blasphemy. This is the truth. This is the truth of the living God. The living God lives in you.
If you have asked Jesus to be the Lord and Saviour of your life if you have believed in your heart, and you have spoken words that say, “I receive You, as my Lord and Saviour, Jesus, I believe in You as my Saviour.” A supernatural divine event happens, and the very seed of God’s life gets put into your human spirit. The transaction that happens, that divine supernatural transfer of Himself into you, is not something that anyone can understand. No one can reason it, no one can receive it in their soul or in their mind. It is something that happens in your spirit.
So, therefore, many, many people will have many reasons and intellects and emotions and they have experiences, and the experiences that they have,—predominantly Christians I mean, and I talk now mostly to Christians. Many Christians have experienced persecution, they may not have recognized it as persecution, (something that happens at work, something that happens at home, something that happens in your financial well being.) You have received persecution, because of the divine nature that now lives in you. Many Christians have experienced and have had a negative experience because of the organization of the church. The organization, as it becomes more ordered, organized and becomes looking like an organization that is very similar to any otherworldly organization.
Many Christians experience a negative circumstance at some point or another. They have an interaction with another human being. Words are exchanged, attitudes are experienced, pressure is felt, and in all of these transactions, there is the temptation to look at the human not go into the Divine. So, whether you’ve experienced the persecution, or whether you’ve experienced an organizational failure in the church, whether you’ve experienced a leadership failure of leaders in the church, whether you’ve experienced a personal encounter with God, where you really thought you had faith for something, and you had a very deep question, and you asked God to meet a very deep need in your heart or in your life, and somehow you didn’t see the answer to that and that might be something that you’ve experienced in your life.
These things are designed to prevent you from allowing that divine nature that is inside of you from becoming the dominant force in your life, and that is designed to keep you in the realm of the humans, and keep you in the realm of reason, and keep you in the realm of the church, that can be spoken against. “I speak against the church because the church has led me down.” In any one of these categories, the church may have let you down. That does not change the divine nature that is inside of you or me. It doesn’t change the power of God that is available to you and me. It is anybody’s choice that makes a decision to accuse the church of letting them down, and then live in their self-pity, or their anger, or their revenge, or their injustice, or their sensor or their lack of fairness, whatever that is that you experience, it is your choice to live there rather than to experience the life of God every day.
Some people have been able to come to terms with this kind of experience in their lives. The way they do it is to say, “I can serve God by myself, I don’t need the church. I’ll have my daily prayers, my daily readings, I’ll watch a bit of TV or whatever the case might be, and I will encounter God by myself. I don’t need the church.” Well, that is exactly whatever those things were that have let you down is designed to do. It’s to keep you offended. It’s to keep you angry. It’s to keep you distant and isolated from the very power of the body of Christ that is designed to grow you. How many people have you seen that experienced any kind of growth where there wasn’t growing pains? How do you get growing pains? Well, you have bumps and bruises. Do you not? Even in a blood family.
Let’s talk about blood families that get on fabulously well together [Congregation laughing]. Even in blood families that get on fabulously well together, you are going to experience bumps and bruises and disagreements and you’re going to experience conflicts and you’re going to have attitudes and things that make you unhappy.
So, what makes you think the family of God, the Blood-bought Church would be any different? You see, all of these things are designed to disconnect you from the very power that is in the body of Christ, the resurrected Christ, Jesus Christ who is in the body. The Resurrection Power of Christ is revealed to me through you. As I see Christ in you, it is revealed to me. I have my own experience with the resurrected Christ, but as I go about my life, I see the resurrected Christ in you. I experience Him. No wonder the enemy wants to keep us isolated from the rest of the body so that we don’t experience the fullness of the Resurrection Power.
It’s an extraordinary thing that many people have tried to intellectualize God. They’ve tried to say many things about God and they’ve tried to have many issues with God. Have lots to say about the universe, have lots to say about the evolution of mankind and many other things. Jesus while He’s walking on the earth, in John chapter 5 verse 26, He makes a statement, that is an eternal line of words that cannot be competed with. He makes this statement. This is out of the Amplified Bible, doesn’t matter which version you read it in, it says the same thing. 26 For even as the Father has life in Himself and is self-existent… (John 5:26 AMPC)
Do you know that if you are self-existent, anything that is Self-existent, does not require anything else, to maintain its existence? There is nothing else in the universe that can do that. Only the Father has in Himself life and is Himself Self-existent. If your mind can grasp that, then you are probably Self-existent. Meaning your mind can’t grasp that, because you can’t. I mean, you can acknowledge it and you can know what self-existence means in words, but none of us can experience self-existence, because we are dependent on our existence, the only Self-existent One is the Father.
The Father, the Self-existent One, 26 …has given to the Son to have life in Himself and be self-existent. (John 5:26 AMPC). The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are Self-existent. Can you imagine people standing on the earth, and they’ve never seen anyone like Jesus. They think He’s a prophet. They know He’s a teacher. They call Him Rabbi. They see Him do great and mighty works, everywhere He goes demons tremble. He casts out devils. There’s just, everywhere He goes, there are crowds of people that want to hear what He has to say. All of the Jewish scholars, all of the Rabbis, all of the Priests, all of the people that are covenant people of Abraham, they don’t know what to do with this Man, because they don’t understand quite what He is, because in their minds He cannot be the Messiah.
But He stands in front of them as a Man with words, because they had some kind of impression of what the Messiah would look like, based on Scripture, and in their minds, this was not He. He stands in front of them with His humanity, and He says, “As the Father is Self-existent, so He has given the power, and He has given to the Son life to be Self-existent.”
Which is why when they wanted to kill Him, they couldn’t kill Him. Nobody could kill Him. They tried to kill Him many times. They couldn’t kill Him, because you can’t kill a Self-existent one. He had to willingly give up His life, otherwise, He would never die. And He has verse 27: ²⁷ He has given Him authority and granted Him power to execute or (exercise, practice) judgement because He is a Son of man. In every sense, He is both man and divine. ²⁸ Do not be surprised and wonder at this, for the time is coming when all those who are in the tombs shall hear His voice. How are they going to hear His voice? Through the voice of Jesus. The two Self-existent beings, by the power of the Holy Spirit Himself, Self-existent.
²⁹ And they shall come out—those who have practiced doing good [will come out] to the resurrection of [new] life, and those who have done evil will be raised for judgment [raised to meet their sentence]. ³⁰ I am able to do nothing from Myself [independently, of My own accord—but only as I am taught by God and as I get His orders]. (John 5:27-30 AMPC).
So, the Self-existent one who was given the right to be Self-existent says of His self-existence, “I cannot exist by Myself without the One who authorises me to exist.” And, when He says “I must speak, I must speak because the self-existent One gives Me the right to be self-existent only when My self-existence is in Him.”
So, everything that I do, I only do it, because I am totally connected to the Self-existent One who gives Me self-existence. This will become very important to you in a short while, which is why I prayed the way I prayed before the beginning, as I started this service.
³⁰Even as I hear, I judge [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision], and My judgment is right (just, righteous), because I do not seek or consult My own will [I have no desire to do what is pleasing to Myself, My own aim, My own purpose] but only the will and pleasure of the Father Who sent Me. (John 5:30 AMPC)
Well, Jesus had an understanding that His existence as a Self-existent One that executed judgement on the earth could do nothing without the permission, and without the unity of the Self-existent One in the heavens.
Do you understand that in His divine being He was Self-existent? In His humanity He had to obey God in every decision, every word, every choice, everything; He had to obey God, in His humanity. In His divinity, He was Self-existent. I declare to you today that this is a moment that God is speaking to us as a body, as a church; and He is speaking to us about the power of the Self-existent One.
That He is absolutely ready to work through any vessel, that has Jesus as the divine being living in the spirit of you-being. When you say, “Not my will, but Your will be done.” And you say, “My existence is completely dependent on You, and I speak not my own words, but Your words. I do not do my own will, but Your will”, the Father is ready to use you in the way that He used Jesus. As you acknowledge that your existence has no value without His.
Recently, I was teaching in Leadership Development School, and I was talking about values. I said, “Well, it’s a very simple thing to see what your values are because all you have to determine is what’s most valuable to you.” Well, how do you get your values? Your values are your values, because of something that’s valuable to you. So, is freedom of choice valuable to you? As your most highly sort of value? I am unique and so I will make my own choice, different to anybody else. Well, that might be a very high-value system to you, because if someone wants you to do something you might say, “I want to have self-expression.” Creative expression and self-expression are two completely different things. Creative expression can be a God thing, self-expression is a self-thing. Praise the Lord.
So, Jesus—walking on the earth has a purpose. His purpose is to die. His purpose is to do the will of the Father and His purpose because God has granted Him authority and given Him the power to execute judgment and he says 29…—those who have practiced doing good [will come out] to the resurrection of [new] life. (John 5:29 AMPC) I’m reading from John chapter five. Are you all with me?
Jesus is going about His life and He comes to understand that someone close to Him has died, but He makes no, or first of all, He finds out that he’s sick and then when He takes His time, on the earth, doing everything the Father tells Him to do. Going where the Father tells Him to go, there is nothing about any decision that He makes, that is not the will of God. But someone close to Him and to His group of the disciples that God has given Him, is sick. Very sick, but He takes His time because, in eternity time, He is not interested in what man’s agenda is. He’s only interested in what God wants Him to do next.
Did He not say, [I decide as I am bidden to decide. As the voice comes to Me, so I give a decision] (John 5:30 AMPC) And whatever that decision is, is right and just and so He takes His time. John, chapter 11, verse 21. 21 Martha then said to Jesus, Master, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. (John 11:21 AMPC) In other words, Jesus, I know You have power over sickness. Power over sickness and disease, but power over death, I’m not so sure of.
Hello? I want to say to you that there are many things that you will have confrontations in your life and here is the margin of the confrontation. Exactly right here for you to consider for yourself, in whatever area of life you live.
Jesus, if You had been here in my money, I would not have got this. Oh, so You actually are the Provider, but in this situation, You let me down. Jesus, if You’d been there in my marriage, and You’d worked in him or her in a timely manner, we wouldn’t have got divorced, my life would have been different. Oh, so You have the power of love, but there are some things You don’t have power over.
There will always be this margin that you recognize that Jesus has got power, that Jesus does have the authority and the judgment over, but then there are some things that in yourself you think that’s too big. She makes a statement, if You’d been here, he would not have died. In other words, this is an accusation. Why did You take your time? Am I not important to You? Am I not more special to You, than other people? You should have walked here quicker and not done what You’ve been doing. You should have gotten here quicker, so You could have saved Lazarus. I am offended by You, Jesus. My judgement about Your behaviour is: You were wrong. What’s fair about this? I’m part of Your team. I provide for You, I love You. You stay in my house often.
And I, 22 And even now I know that whatever You ask from God, He will grant it to You. So, she’s on the margin of, here, maybe something can happen here, but I don’t know. 23 Jesus said to her, Your brother shall rise again. 24 Martha replied. Now I’m wanting you to just get an understanding that here is someone who’s been around Jesus a long time while He’s been on the earth. She’s heard many of His sayings and now this is a fairly, I want to say, a fairly covenant conversation going on here. Your brother shall rise again. 24Martha replied, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. (John 11:22-24 AMPC)
Remember, I’ve got to read you in John chapter five, that those who died who have done good, they will be resurrected. They shall walk again. John chapter five. So, it is likely that Martha was listening to His teaching. So, when He asked her the question, “I know that he will rise again, like everybody else that You’ve spoken about, is going to rise again in the resurrection.” So, she’s been listening, but she’s not sure. What’s Jesus talking about here?
25 Jesus said to her, I am [Myself] the Resurrection and the Life. Whoever believes in (adheres to, trusts in, and relies on) Me, although he may die, yet he shall live; 26 And whoever continues to live and believes in (has faith in, cleaves to, and relies on) Me shall never [actually] die at all. Do you believe this? (John 11:25-26 AMPC) Martha. I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he be dead yet shall he live. Actually, those who believe in Me now, they shall never die. They shall never see death. Do you believe this Martha?
27 She said to Him, Yes, Lord, I have believed [I do believe] that You are the Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One), the Son of God, [even He] Who was to come into the world. [It is for Your coming that the world has waited.] (John 11:27 AMPC). As the Amplified puts it. She says, “I believe that you are the Christ.” This is an extraordinary conversation of covenant and spiritual insight because God is asking Martha a question of deeply eternal significance, that has got everything to do with every human beings’ salvation and resurrection. Hallelujah.
I want to take you a little bit further down in the chapter. So, there’s a whole lot of crying going on here because Mary came to the place where Jesus was in verse 32. 32When Mary came to the place where Jesus was and saw Him, she dropped down at His feet, saying to Him, Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died. What makes you think Martha and Mary had been talking? Sounds like a lot of things that happen in the church, people talk about stuff, and they get to agreement about stuff they shouldn’t be getting into agreement about.
33 When Jesus saw her sobbing, and the Jews who came with her [also] sobbing, because this is a big funeral thing going on now, a grieving thing. He was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. [He chafed in spirit and sighed and was disturbed.] 34 And He said, Where have you laid him? They said to Him, Lord, come and see. 35 Jesus wept. 36 The Jews said, See how [tenderly] He loved him! 37 But some of them said, Could not He Who opened a blind man’s eyes have prevented this man from dying? 38 1Now Jesus, again sighing repeatedly and deeply disquieted, approached the tomb. (John 11:32-38 AMPC)
I want to just say to you, do you recognize that Jesus was never troubled in His spirit as a Self-existent one? Come on. Come on, work with me here for a minute. If you are the Self-existent one, who only takes orders from the Self-existent one, who only goes and decides what He decides, who only says what He says? How is it that you can have an experience or have an emotion that is troubled? Because a troubled emotion means you have an uncertain outcome. Why else would you be troubled? If you are troubled about something, that means that there is a problem that is confronting you, that you do not yet have a solution for, and because you are troubled, because you have a problem that you don’t have a solution for, you can be troubled.
How is it that someone who is in the Self-existent one, who is Self-existent, who does everything the Self-existent One tells Him? How is it that He would weep for someone who’s dead when He’s about to raise him from the dead? Why weep? What was He sighing about?
I suggest to you that what was happening to Him in that moment, was that He was breathing out the very life of God into the situation, as an act of intercession, misunderstood by those who were yet to see what is about to happen. He would not be crying tears of grief. Why would He be crying tears of grief when He was about to raise the man from the dead? Why would He even have sighs and groanings of disquiet and trouble, when He is about to raise the man from the dead? He already knew the solution to the problem. What’s the trouble?
Perhaps the trouble was the way that people were behaving around Him, that they didn’t trust God, the Self-existent One who could heal him, but not raise him. Perhaps He was doing a spiritual, He was doing the sighing’s of God, the groanings of God, the tears of God, because of the unbelief of the humanity because, in the Self-existent One, He knew what the next outcome was going to be. But certainly, this was not a human experience. Hallelujah.
39Jesus said, Take away the stone. Martha, the sister of the dead man, exclaimed, But Lord, by this time his body, he [is decaying and] throws off an offensive odour, for he has been dead four days! If You had been here, while he was sick, he would not have died. “Do you believe in the Resurrection Power of the Messiah?” “I believe.” “Open the stone.” “He smells.”
Does that sound like you and me? When God gives us an instruction to obey Him, this can’t possibly be the solution, it stinks. This can’t possibly be the solution, because this is too human. This is offensive to all of what humans stand for. This can’t possibly be God speaking for a solution. This can’t possibly be God speaking, because it would cause me to be troubled. Does that sound like you and me?
I wonder why God would call the church to intercede for all saints, that they might come to the full knowledge of truth. Isn’t that what God called us to pray for? God called us to pray for all people that they will be saved and come to the knowledge of truth. Because it’s your lack of knowledge of truth that causes you not to live in Resurrection Power.
It is not the God of the church that lets you down. It’s not the God of the experience that my uncle or my auntie or my friend or my brother or my sister or my mother or my father had a faith encounter with God and He let them down and didn’t answer them, and so I’m offended at God with them because they told me their offence, and now I am also offended. It’s not that God that is speaking to you and telling you to move the obstacle. So, that the smelling decaying, troubled problem can be sorted.
Jesus, why? Four days, he’s already decaying. This is according to all human understanding. Biologically four days, his body’s decaying, there is no way, he’s technically dead. Medically, four day’s means he is already dead. Three days, they sometimes say people can wake up again, I don’t know. But something about the fourth day for sure he’s dead. 40 Jesus said to her, Did I not tell you and promise you that if you would believe and rely on me, you would see the glory of God? (John 11:40)
I say to you today church, do I not tell you today that if you will believe in the promises of God, and you will rely on God, that you will see the glory of God in your life. I am the messenger of God to tell you this truth as He told it to them, today. 41 So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up His eyes, and I want you to see this prayer that Jesus is about to pray because it answers and speaks to the truth of what I’ve just spoken about in the way that He first reacted. 41So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, Father, I thank You that You have heard Me (1John 11:41).
When did He hear Jesus? When He was crying and when He was sighing. I thank You, Father, that You have heard me because the Self-existent One has always seen that the other Self-existent One, is Self-existent because He’s in His existence. 42Yes, I know You always hear and listen to Me, but I have said this on account of and for the benefit of the people standing around, so that they may believe that You did send Me [that You have made Me Your Messenger]. 43When He had said this, He shouted with a loud voice, Lazarus, come out! Lazarus, come out! Lazarus, come out! 44 And out walked the man who had been dead, his hands and feet wrapped in burial cloths (linen strips), and with a [burial] napkin bound around his face (1John 11:42-44 AMPC).
How is this man, who is bound in death walking out of the tomb? The very Resurrection Power of God, Himself lifted him out of his resting place, lifted his body up and moved him out of. We have this idea that his own strength walked him out. How do I know this? Because Jesus gives them an instruction. He says to them, 44Jesus said to them, free him of the burial wrappings and let him go. (John 11:44 AMPC). Free him. What was he? Bound. His hands and feet wrapped in burial clothes. How is he walking? I know what your mind is saying. [Pastor John shuffling feet to demonstrate]
Okay, even if your mind can accept that, the man was dead, how did he get up? Core strength. Even if your mind accepts that it means the Resurrection Power of God came upon a body that was already decaying and repaired his muscle structure and his ligament structure and his core strength to the point where he could actually lift himself up and walk out. That’s more fitness than most people have; even if you’re fit.
See, your mind wants to diminish and just kind of intellectualize how the voice of Jesus could raise him from the dead. Hey, the man was dead. D-E-A-D, Dead. You know no life, nothing, and so the Resurrection Power of Jesus is so evident that He speaks, “Lazarus, come out.” This is right after He said, “You’ve heard Me. Thank You for hearing Me, Father. You always hear Me. And now I’m just speaking on account of all of these other people. So, that all these other people can know and believe that You sent Me. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have had to say anything or do anything. I would have just shouted at him.” The Resurrection Power of Jesus. The Resurrection Power of God.
Okay, here’s my question to you. How much power does it take to solve a problem in your life? How much power does it take? I will ask you this question again, and again. You may not realise this, but you are breathing. How much power does it take to breathe? Do you think the power that you have to breathe is because your body is alive? The reason you are breathing is because the power of God puts breath into man. The same power that puts breath into man, keeps you breathing every day.
It’s not the biology of your body. That’s the mechanism, but it is the power of God that said, “Live!” How much power does that take? You can’t measure that power. All of humanity, in Adam, [Pastor John blows a breath] “Live!” How much power does that take? It takes no more or less power than He says, “Let there be light. Let the earth and the waters separate.” Power. “Man – breathe.” Any more or less power? You might say to yourself, “Well, Pastor John, hey, let’s be real, moving the waters and the seas from each other, that’s quite a big deal, you know. Just breathing breath into a man, that’s not such a big thing.”
Can I put this into context for you? If you’re the Self-existent one, how much more power does it take from you to move waters and land from each other than to tell; live. Let all the creatures of the earth, all the birds of the air, the fishes in the water, let them live. You think the fish jump out of the water by themselves? They have a natural instinct that God put in them when He said to Adam, “Adam.” I don’t want you to get caught up with the theology of this, but this is really what I believe. I know that there are some other ministers that do believe the same as me, but when God said to Adam, “Name the animals,” He wasn’t attending the first convention of namings. He was completely unified as the first Adam, as a Self-existent one that was existing with the Father. Come on, because Jesus is known as the second Adam. So, if He was the second Adam, the first Adam was Self-existent because he was only the Father and He was the Self-existent because He made man in His image. He said, “Let him be like Me and have dominion, and We made him in the image of the Self-existent One.
He and the Self-existent male, the Self-existent human being, He says to him, “Name all the creatures,” and between the two Self-existent beings, they created. I’ll give that to you for consideration. It wasn’t like God brought a giraffe in front of him and said, “What do you want to name him?” “I think I’ll call him longneck one or whatever. G, g, g, giraffe.” Think it was a naming convention? It was a creating convention, between two Self-existent beings, because Adam was completely Self-existent on God, he could not exist without God. He walked in His glory, He was the glory. There was nothing else but the glory. He was given total dominion of everything else that was in the garden, in the same way, that God had glory and power over all other existing living beings. Adam had the same glory. And so Jesus comes in works on the earth and He says, “That thing that was lost by Adam, the Self-existent one has put His life in Me. And now anyone who believes in Me gets the same life. Because the Self-existent one comes to live in you, in your spirit. Wow.
On the instruction of the Holy Spirit, I ask you to stand with me today, please, and by instruction of the Holy Spirit, I am instructed to speak to you this way today. I am instructed to say to you by the Holy Spirit one, the Self-existent spirit that lives in me, and has authorized me and gifted me and called me to be a messenger of the Most High God. I’m instructed to speak to you today and say to you, “Today, whatever part of your life is dead and decaying, and is troubled. I am authorized to speak to you and say, come out from your death. Come out from your grave. Come out from your circumstances that are binding you and holding you hostage. Come out from your separation from the Self-existent One. Come out from your unbelief and your disbelief of His power.” I speak to you and say, “Come out from your poverty, I speak to you and say, “Come out from your sickness and disease.” I say to you, “Come out from your relationships that have been destroyed and are falling apart,” I say come out in Jesus’ name. I say, “Come out, to you, those who are doubtful ones that say if You had spoken this Word to me many years ago, my life would have turned out differently and it would not be in the trouble that it is.” I say to you now, “Come out from that mentality in the name of Jesus’. Come out from there in the name of Jesus.” Hallelujah.
“And I speak to your future and I say, “Your future will no longer be behind walls and behind closed doors and be isolated from the world because of a death syndrome that has overtaken your mind and has overtaken your life and your world circumstances.” And I say, “Behold, your entrance to life is removed, or your death sentence is removed in Jesus’ name. And I say, “Come out and walk amongst the free ones, come out and walk amongst the life of the Self-existent ones, the ones where the life of Christ exists in them and in you, come and walk amongst us. Come and free yourself from the bondages that have kept you in your grave.” Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
Come out from that self-nature of yours, that stubbornness, that will of yours that keeps speaking against the Church, that keeps speaking words against God, that keeps saying “If he had been there, then something else would have been different.” I say, “Come out from that mentality of death and come and live amongst the living. Come and walk here. Come and experience the life of God, let His Resurrection Power lift you up from your death sentence and move you out of your circumstances and bring you into resurrection life.” Hallelujah.
How much power does that take? Do you believe? I promise you according to the Word of God that I read earlier, this is the promise that Jesus gave to Martha and Mary if you will believe that you will see His glory in your life. You will see His glory. That is not my promise, that is the promise of Jesus. It is the promise of the Self-existent One. Hallelujah. Glory to Jesus. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. The Lord Jesus has instructed me that there might be some of you… Now I know this is something that might take a little bit of time, but He’s instructed me that there are some of you that might want to come and stand here in the front as a sign of, I believe. Because you want to walk out… it might be all of you. Hallelujah.
I get that, Lord. I get that, Lord. Hallelujah. Praise Jesus. Praise Jesus. Praise Jesus. Hallelujah. I’m walking out. I asked the Lord this morning, I was sitting in my chair, I was preparing and I was just weeping and weeping. I said, “Lord, help me. Help me finish, help me finish this message today without tears. Like you cried, because of unbelief, because of humanity.” Hallelujah.
The resurrection life of God is working in you, right now. Hallelujah. Praise Jesus. Praise Jesus. Glory to God. I brought some tissues for myself here because I didn’t think I’d get through all of it. Hallelujah. If you’re standing out there and you are wanting to be with them here, please raise your hands. This is not an altar call. This is a resurrection life call, this is a resurrection life call. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Praise You, Jesus. Praise You, Jesus. Praise You, Jesus. Praise You, Jesus. Glory to Your name. The Holy Spirit is here. There is nothing I can do for you. This is not about me. This is about the Holy Spirit. It’s about the resurrection life of Christ that is busy restoring and healing and saving you and bringing you out from a death thought pattern. A death life pattern.
We met last Sunday. I’ve forgotten your name. Please come forward, Sir. Just you, just you. Hallelujah. Glory to God. Praise Jesus. This is the anointing of the Holy Spirit. I can only be obedient to the Holy Spirit and so I’m here to do this. This is what instruction that the Lord gave me today. I didn’t know you were going to be here. If you come a little bit closer to me. I’m going to pray, “What’s your name, Sir? Renier. I am under the anointing and I forgot. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. As I’m laying hands on Renier. He is representing all of you. All of you. And as I pray this prayer over his body and over his life, you can take this prayer for you. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
Yes, Father, I speak to Renier’s body and I command his body to be restored to complete health, from this day forward and forever. Until the time of his humanity comes to a healthy end. I speak for others, that his eyes would be open to the realm of the Spirit as he has never seen. I speak Father, that he will speak words that only You put in his mouth to speak.
I declare Father, that he will walk with You in the ways that You ask him to walk, and that You have purposed for him to walk, I ask that You will do that for him. I pray that everything that has gone before, right now, it is restored and put together in a way that only You can put everything back together. I speak life to him and to all of those that he’s represented by my lying on hands, on him. Hallelujah.
Father, I ask that he will experience You, he will know You. He will have the life of God in Him in ways that will astound those around him. And so say I over all of these here today. In Jesus name, in Jesus name.
May the love of the Father be upon you. May the love of the Father rise up inside of you. May the love of the Father just be everywhere that you go. In Jesus name, in Jesus name. Hallelujah, Hallelujah. Glory to God. Glory to Jesus. Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
May you be blessed, may you be blessed. You may be seated. This meeting today is one step further into a series of meetings and things that are about to happen, as I keep preaching this message. I saw this in my spirit. It is my faith that is put out by God, that the healing power of God is going to touch people’s bodies, and you’re going to be healed of things. I’m believing. I believe I declare that the healing power of God touches your bodies. Sickness and disease will leave your body, in Jesus name. I believe and I speak it because I believe it, that oppression and depression and all manner of mental issues that have been plaguing your life will leave you.
I have nothing that I can do for you out of myself. I speak this on behalf of the Father. There is nothing that I can do to change anything for you. I’m a messenger, I’m a human messenger. I’ve asked the Lord and I’ve said to Him, “I’m asking You, Father, that whatever You wish to do, and whatever You will to do, that You will do it in such a way that people will say, “Oh, that’s the pattern of those kinds of churches. Or we’ve seen that done in another kind of place.”
I’ve asked Him to move in such a way that the resurrection power of God will come upon you, and you will just know it’s happened. That there is no glory that can be taken by men, that all glory will be given to the Father, the Self-existent One and Jesus whose resurrection power we depend on. Whose name is greater than any other name, whose life is more beautiful and more wonderful than any other life. Hallelujah. Glory to Jesus. Glory to Jesus.
I need you to stand with me one more time as we close the service, please. Please put your hand on your heart. Say, “Father, I thank You, that inside of me is the life of God. The Resurrection Power of Jesus lives in me. Hallelujah. I trust You, I believe You to restore my life and for me and You to live together in unity. In Jesus name.” Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
You know, if you are completely in unity with Jesus, you will never be troubled. All crying and sighing you will do will only be to bring the will of the Father to the earth. It will not be crying and sighing because of answers you don’t have. That is the Word of the Lord for you. If you will walk in unity with Him. Hallelujah.
I pray that your week is blessed. I pray that no weapon formed against you will prosper. I pray that you’re blessed going out and blessed coming in. Whatever you put your hands to, it will prosper. I ask the Father, that this week, you will become aware of the power of the resurrected Christ that is in you. That words that you speak that are in agreement with His written Word, that those words will begin to resurrect your life—financially, materially, relationally and in all emotional issues. Speak life, speak unity of the Father. Hallelujah.
I pray then, that the peace of God that passes your understanding, will rule and reign in your heart and will mount garrison and guard your mind and your soul and it will cause you to walk in a level of peace and strength that will just flow in your life. Do you believe?[Congregation answers, Yes] Do you believe? [Congregation answers, Yes] If you believe this say, “Amen.” Receive the peace of God because you believe. In Jesus name. Amen. Thank you for being in church today. God bless you.
