Lazarus, come forth! How did he come out?

John 11:43-44 (NKJV) 43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” 44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”  I was meditating on these two verses and i was asking the Holy Spirit “How did he come out? Who carried him out”?He had been dead for days and was bound hand and foot with graveclothes and dead people don’t move! This is what he told me, ” John 6:63 (NKJV) 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. The word that Jesus spoke is a spirit and when he spoke that word, it was a command that was directed towards Lazarus spirit . The body of Lazarus was dead but his spirit was not which was why Jesus said in John 11:11 that \Lazarus was sleeping. Lazarus believed In Jesus before he died, Jesus called him his friend. The spirit in the word brought him out! Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV) 11 “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it”. After Jesus gave the command, it was the spirit in the word that brought out Lazarus, it had to fulfill the command, the word accomplished the purpose for which it was sent and it succeeded by Lazarus coming out.

The words that we speak all have a spirit, it might be a positive or a negative spirit. What you let people speak into your life can either affect you positively or negatively and the results depend on the type of spirit following it. What you speak into someone’s life today or what people speak into your life might not happen the day they send the word. Proverbs 18:21 (NKJV) 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit. 

Numbers 6:24-27
 
 “May the Lord bless me and keep me; 
May the Lord make His face shine upon me,
And be gracious to me; 
May the Lord lift up His countenance upon me,
And give me peace.”’
in Jesus Name! Amen
