Many did not believe when Jesus told them He would be resurrected on the third day, but they were amazed when they heard Jesus talk about this event, they doubted Him, they did not believe.
The same happens in this time and perhaps worse, people only look for Jesus when they have a problem, and after God helps them with their problem, they return to what they were before.
Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.
This people with whom Jesus worked day after day, did not believe that He could raise the dead, even seeing the signs and miracles that He did before their eyes. Reading the Gospels we will find several miracles that Jesus did during His journey through those cities.
But what those people did not know was that Jesus was speaking of an eternal resurrection, which would be received by those who believed in Him, as the following biblical verse says, that whoever believes in Him, even though he is dead, will live.
And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?
This is a great truth, He is the life, only in Him we must believe, because there is no other in which we can be raised, and this is why we must believe fully in Jesus, He is the life, and we will die, but not eternally, because God will raise us in the day of His coming, and we must believe in this great promise made by Him.
She said to Him, “Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”
This is Jesus whom we must believe all the time, as one of His disciples named Peter have said, affirming that Jesus has come into the world to give us salvation and eternal life. Remember that to achieve salvation and eternal life you must believe in Him.
Jesus, the resurrection and life
“Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”
The fact that a dead person may be risen again is something very difficult to admit by people in this World. The apostle Paul could hear how people in Athens mocked him when he spoke of the resurrection of the dead. We read in Acts 17:32
“And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear you again of this matter.”
That very thing happens in our day: People laugh at us or smile when they hear that there will be a resurrection of dead. The Bible teaches us that amazing thing many times. It tells us also how some people in Corinth assured there was not resurrection of dead. Paul said: “What advantages it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die”
But it is unbelievable, to the carnal mind, that a man could rise someone, as Jesus did with Lazarus. Jesus showed us he is a perfect man and he is God.
The Lord Jesus Christ said He is the Resurrection and the Life, and this is a nice blessing for us, who believe in Jesus.
We may feel happy because as Jesus was risen from the dead, so we will be risen by Him.
It is something wonderful that our body— which in general finishes, is wasted and sometimes is harmed by sickness—may be changed and regenerated again to enjoy true happiness in the Father’s Home with Jesus Christ; and, as Paul said, we have “a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better.”
The Lord Jesus Christ tell us, and all people who read, this: “He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.”
May the name of God be praised by all who expect to be risen to Life.
AMEN I BELIEVE THERE WILL BE A RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD JESUS IS COMING BACK AMEN.
