Do you believe this? So Yeshua, again deeply troubled within Himself, comes to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. In order for those who have become spiritually dead to be restored we as the Body of Messiah must roll away every stone we placed between them and restored life. There will always be those who would rather see people remain trapped in death and will come against you for rolling away the stone. Principle 4 is found in John When G-D cries out with a loud voice get out of the way.
Principles 5 and 6 are both found in verse 44 and may be the most important principles for you and I to make a real part of our personal ministry. He who had been dead came out, wrapped in burial clothes binding his hands and feet, with a cloth over his face.

Notice when Lazarus comes forth his hands and his feet are bound. Even after Yeshua brought him back to life he was still bound and Yeshua told his disciples to cut him free. When someone in our community comes back from the dead they will often still be bound by their sins and failures as well as by our sins and failures in how we treated them during their sickness and death. It is up to the Body of Messiah to cut those bonds and restore them to full movement within the Body.
The last step in the process is to remove that which blinds the resurrected and restore person to the fullness of their newness in Messiah. They may be alive and even set free from their bondage but until their sight is restored they will still see themselves as one who was dead and has become partially decomposed. Remember Lazarus was dead four days. It is up to us to remove the cloth from their eyes by our words and actions, we as the Body of Messiah must remove that which keeps them from seeing the fullness of their life from the dead.
We do this by reminding them of what the Scriptures say about forgiveness and restoration. We do this by loving them in such a way that the cloth is removed completely. Be assured that people in our congregations and communities are resurrected from the dead in just as real a way as Lazarus was and through this example we learn that we have a great responsibility the process.

The evangelicals who believe they can raise the dead
How Did I Get Here? Daniel Juster May 11, The Wall Street Journal recently reported that a girl who thinks she is a boy was admitted into the Boy Scouts. What is going on? While studying philosophy and theology at Wheaton College, then Trinity and McCormick, I came to some conclusions that were highly significant for me. Language both reveals and hides reality. Contrary to philosophical relativism that denies there is any real objective truth, I saw the issue as the quest for the right language to reveal the most about reality. The only way to see rightly is to have our minds saturated by the Bible and to view reality through it.
There is a reason Yeshua himself is called the Word! We are now living in an age where the radical left exemplifies the view of John Paul Sartre, and the most radical post-modernism that followed him. He taught that there is no such thing as human nature, and that there is radical freedom for humans to define themselves and choose to be whatever they desire to be. Of course language is a critical element in this process of definition. Indeed, those who are able to gain control of the language in a society can redefine words, demand language conformity and gradually restructure society.
In many ways, this is what is happening today. The biological aspects of male and female seem obvious, and our conclusions from this should be common sense. It is to say that a man can bear babies. President Trump rescinded this. This seems like total craziness to us because we use the language that, until recently, was normal in our societies. Even without Biblical language, all societies by intuition and experience have distinguished between male and female.
But this now has come to be opposed by the radical thought police in our societies in the West. Whether through communism or politically correct nostrums, the goal is what I call leveling — where everything goes toward nothingness, and there is no creation order at all. One of our young people in a prestigious American college in the Northeast has had to go through sessions of indoctrination to use language that is gender neutral and to embrace LGBT people.

We really have to create an alternative culture and education, and from this base invade the culture and fight the battle for language. This will require great prayer, evangelism and revival.

Moran Rosenblit May 10, Sinai for when they would enter the Land, and that which Yeshua would ultimately fulfill:. It shall be a jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family. Leviticus — The fact that the Jubilee is connected to the Day of Atonement is very significant! We understand it to mean that each person will need to have a personal atonement, which again Yeshua Himself has given us as the final atonement for our sins.
Isaiah —3 uses the same word and expresses the same idea of freedom which we read in Leviticus:. It is no coincidence that Yeshua quoted these verses above before He began His ministry of setting people free! Not only did He quote them, but He also said,.
T oday this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing. Yeshua indeed came to deliver all of us who were in slavery to sin, once and for all! I am so thankful; are you, too?

And with the US Embassy move followed by Guatemala and other Israel-friendly nations beginning May 14, the hatred of the nations who rage against Israel and our G-d is only going to intensify. So He is going to use this for His glory and that is the good news. She graduated from University of Illinois and as an RN she practiced nursing for many years. Miriam Abramov May 10, Yeshua went through the Temple area at the worship grounds and began to turn over the tables. These were merchants, those who were selling goods to Jews and others who had come to worship in Jerusalem at the sacred Temple.
The selling of goods had become the focus of the hearts and this is what angered our Lord. He came with a whip! The Lord had shown himself to the Israelites on many occasions in powerful and miraculous ways throughout centuries. He only asked for loyal hearts, often a difficult request to grant. Hearts had turned to money, the sellers recognizing they could prey on innocent worshippers.
Worshippers largely came with a clean heart to the mountain of the Lord. God provided sacrifices in exchange for forgiveness when the heart was astray or unclean the sacrificial system. In the passage in question, Matthew explains an event that took place in Jerusalem.
Some of his readers may have even been familiar with it, either through firsthand knowledge or by hearing it from others. But I believe the reason that Matthew mentions it is that the Jews, with the exception of the Sadducees, believed that people would physically rise from the dead. Of course, Jesus had other plans and raised Lazarus moments later. Clearly, first century Jews believed in bodily resurrection—they just thought it would happen at the end of time.
They might be surprised by the timing of such an event, but they would not be appalled by the idea of people rising from the dead.

They might view the event as a foretaste of what is to come and confirmation that Jesus was indeed who He claimed to be. Perhaps this is why so many priests eventually came to believe in Him Acts If this is accurate, then why did the other Gospel writers fail to mention the event? I think the reason is that they were writing to audiences consisting largely of Gentiles in a Hellenized world.
For the most part, the Greeks abhorred the idea of a bodily resurrection. An example of the typical Greek reaction to bodily resurrection can be seen in Acts Then he was invited to speak in the Areopagus, and as soon as he mentioned Jesus rising from the dead, many in the Greek audience ridiculed him Acts — When the apostles went around the Roman Empire proclaiming the gospel, the goal was to persuade people to believe in the death, burial, and Resurrection of Christ. They would not need to talk about a related event that is not essential to the main message and might simply introduce confusion.
This might explain why Paul did not mention the event in 1 Corinthians 15, a book written to a church consisting largely of Gentiles. Learn how to defend the historical basis of the gospel. One objection to this proposal is that Mark, Luke, and John all describe Jesus raising at least one person from the dead. John 11 dramatically describes the raising of Lazarus.
If the resurrection of the dead was so offensive to the Greek mindset, why would Mark, Luke, and John include these accounts? This is a fair question, but it does not discount my solution to Matthew being the only one to mention many saints being raised. One of the reasons Greek-minded readers may not object to these is that the resurrections performed by Jesus in the Gospels were qualitatively different than His own Resurrection. This is why Paul can call Jesus the firstfruits of those who rise from the dead in 1 Corinthians Would they die again?

Why should they even bring it up when their goal is to help their readers understand that Jesus rose from the dead? I believe the events happened just as they are described in Matthew — This is consistent with the majority of conservative Christian scholars. Since all of the details in the surrounding passages are written with the clear intent that they should be understood in a straightforward manner, it is natural to interpret these verses in the same way.
Near the end of the book, he raised a fair bit of controversy among Christians by proposing that maybe these verses should be understood as a literary device in which the author was using a popular convention of the day to show that an extremely important person had just died. After citing several of these examples, Licona postulated that Matthew may have simply been using a well-known literary device to stress the uniqueness of Jesus Christ.
The concern for some Christians was that this passage has generally been held as historical so if one could reinterpret these words as just being some literary device, then what is to stop someone from taking that approach in other areas, particularly the Crucifixion narrative just before it and the Resurrection account that follow? If what is described in this passage did not really happen, would it follow that we should stop viewing the Crucifixion and Resurrection as historical too?

That is perhaps the major concern for Christians and is at the heart of the challenge from skeptics. Although they could never do it, if the skeptic could somehow demonstrate that these saints never rose, how would it have any bearing on whether Jesus rose from the dead? At best for the skeptic or worst for the Christian , all that would have been accomplished is that a unique passage about saints rising from the dead is erroneous.
This might be a strike against biblical inerrancy, but it would not have any impact on whether Jesus rose from the dead. The Resurrection is not contingent upon the veracity of Matthew —53 , and the Christian faith does not depend on the truth of that passage. Christianity rests upon the historical reality that Jesus died for our sins and conquered death when He rose from the dead. So in a sense, all the skeptic has done is introduce a red herring, an argument that distracts one from the issue at hand. Let me clarify this point so there is no misunderstanding.
