Lazarus' Death

John 11:1-16, "A man named Lazarus was sick. Mary and Martha were his sisters. Mary is the same who poured perfume on the LORD and wiped His feet with her hair. They sent word to Jesus, 'LORD, the one You love is sick.' When He heard, 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...' After He had said this, He went on to tell them, 'Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I Am going to wake him up.' His disciples replied, 'LORD, if he sleeps, he will get better.' Jesus had been speaking of his death, but the disciples thought He meant natural sleep. So then He told them plainly, 'Lazarus is dead and for your sake I Am glad I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him.' "

Jesus is The Creator in the flesh. Jesus is GOD in the flesh. Jesus told His disciples,  "For the Father and I are One (in the Same)." (John 10:30) Jesus is in total control of everything! Nothing happens but what He allows for His purposes. This is a sinful fallen universe because man chose to sin. Man now has the choice to accept Christ's paying the penalty for his/her sin or the choice to reject His free gift of salvation. Lazarus' death had a special purpose in design for Christ to show His power. Death is but the door to eternity. Make sure your eternity is with GOD Almighty through Christ Jesus and not an eternity of punishment in the Lake of Fire. You are given the choice to make and you can not "blame" GOD!
