Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy.

JOHN Chapter 11 - The Death Of Lazarus

The Death Of Lazarus

Now a man named Lazarus was sick.
He was from Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.
2 This Mary whose brother now lay sick,
Was the same one who poured perfume on the Lord
And wiped His feet with her hair.
3 So the sisters sent word to Jesus,
'Lord the one you love is sick.'

4 When He heard this, Jesus said,
'This sickness will not end in Death.
No, it is for God's Glory
So that God's Son may be Glorified through it.'

5 Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus.
6 Yet when He heard that Lazarus was sick,
He stayed where He was two more days.

7 Then He said to His Disciples, 'Let us go back to Judea.'

8 'But Rabbi,' they said, 'a short while ago
The Jews tried to stone You,
And yet you are going back there?'

9 Jesus answered, 'Are there not twelve hours of daylight?
A man who walks by day will not stumble,
For he sees by this World's light.
10 It is when he walks by night that he stumbles,
For he has no light.'

11 After he had said this, He went on to tell them,
'Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep;
But I am going there to Wake him up.'

12 His Disciples replied,
'Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.'
13 Jesus had been speaking of his Death,
But his Disciples thought He meant natural sleep.

14 So then He told them plainly, 'Lazarus is Dead,
15 And for your sake I am glad I was not there,
So that you may Believe.
But let us go to him.'

16 Then Thomas (called Didymus) said to the rest of the Disciples,
'Let us also go, that we may die with Him.'

Jesus Comforts The Sisters

17 On His arrival, Jesus found
That Lazarus had already been in the Tomb for four days.
18 Bethany was less than two miles from Jerusalem,
19 And many Jews had comer to Martha and Mary
To comfort them in the loss of their brother.

20 When Martha heard that Jesus was coming,
She went out to meet Him, but Mary stayed at home.

21 'Lord,” Martha said to Jesus,
'If you had been here, my brother would not have died.
22 But I know that even now
God will give you whatever you ask.'

23 Jesus said to her, 'Your brother will rise again.'

24 Martha answered,
'I know he will rise in the Resurrection at The Last Day.'

25 Jesus said to her,
'I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE.
HE WHO BELIEVES IN ME WILL LIVE, EVEN THOUGH HE DIES;
26 AND WHOEVER LIVES AND BELIEVES IN ME WILL NEVER DIE.
Do you believe this?'

27 'Yes, Lord,' she told Him,
'I Believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God,
Who was to come into the World.'

28 And after she had said this
She went back and called her sister Mary aside.
'The Teacher is here,' she said, 'and is asking for you.'
29 When Mary heard this,
She got up quickly and went to Him.

30 Now Jesus had not yet entered the village,
But was still at the place where Martha had met Him.
31 When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house,
Comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out,
They followed her,
Supposing she was going to the Tomb to mourn there.

32 When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw Him,
She fell at His feet and said,
'Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.'

33 When Jesus saw her weeping,
And the Jews who had come along with her also weeping,
He was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.
34'Where have you laid him?' He asked.
'Come and see, Lord,' they replied.''

35 Jesus Wept.

36 Then the Jews said, 'See how He loved him!'

37 But some of them said,
'Could not He who opened the eyes of the blind man
Have kept this man from dying?'

Jesus Raises Lazarus From The Dead

38 Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb.
It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance.
39 'TAKE AWAY THE STONE,' He said.

'But, Lord,' said Martha, the sister of the dead man,
'By this time there is a bad odor,
For he has been there four days.'

Then Jesus said,
'DID I NOT TELL YOU THAT IF YOU BELIEVED,
YOU WOULD SEE THE GLORY OF GOD?'

41 So they took away the stone.
Then Jesus looked Up and said,
'FATHER, I THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE HEARD ME.
42 I KNEW THAT YOU ALWAYS HEAR ME,
BUT I SAID THIS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE PEOPLE STANDING HERE,
THAT THEY MAY BELIEVE THAT YOU SENT ME.'

43 When He had said this, Jesus called out in a Loud Voice,
'LAZARUS COME OUT!'
44 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.'

The Plot To Kill Jesus

45 Therefore many of the Jews who had come to visit Mary,
And had seen what Jesus did, put their Faith in Him.

46 But some of them went to the Pharisees
And told them what Jesus had done.
47 Then the Chief Priests and the Pharisees
Called a meeting of the Sanhedrin.

'What are we accomplishing?' they asked.
'Here is this man performing many miraculous signs.
If we let him go on like this,
Everyone will believe in Him,
And then the Romans will come and take away
Both our place and our Nation.

49 Then one of them, named Caiaphas,
Who was High Priest that year, spoke up,
'YOU KNOW NOTHING AT ALL!
50 You do not realize that it is better for you
That one man die for the people
Than that the Whole Nation Perish.'

51 He did not say this on his own,
But as High Priest that year he Prophesied
That Jesus would die for the Jewish Nation,
And not only for that Nation
But also for the scattered Children of God,
TO BRING THEM TOGETHER AND MAKE THEM ONE.

53 SO FROM THAT DAY ON THEY PLOTTED TO TAKE HIS LIFE.

54 Therefore Jesus no longer moved about publicly among the Jews.
Instead He withdrew to a region near the desert,
To a village called Ephraim, where He stayed with His Disciples.

55 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover,
Many went up form the country to Jerusalem
For their Ceremonial Cleansing before the Passover.
56 They kept looking for Jesus,
And as they stood in the Temple area they asked one another,
Isn't He coming to the Feast at all?'

57 But the Chief Priests and Pharisees had given orders
That if anyone found out where Jesus was,
He should report it so that they might arrest Him.
(John 11)
