I Am the Resurrection and the Life

John 11:25-26 Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…

Yeshua said to her, (Marta – Martha) “I AM the Resurrection and the Life! Whoever puts his trust in Me will live, even if he dies; and everyone living and trusting in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”

I love that Yeshua asked Marta if she believed Him. What patience and love is displayed in such a question. The former statement being the truth was unquestionable. Whether Marta believed it or not – it is truth. Yet, Yeshua is reaching for her heart here, beautifully intimate and full of safe invitation. The statement of who He is is full of hope even cloaked in a world of mystery.
How many of us know what Resurrection means? Vaguely we may know to some degree in connection to the Resurrection of Yeshua after three days in the tomb. A coming back to life. But what the word Resurrection means in His statement to Marta, can not be based by any known experience yet. He has not yet called forth Lazarus from his tomb, nor has He Himself been raised. So Resurrection here must mean more. Here in the Oxford Thesaurus are the many ways to view to the word.

Resurrection – verb – restore to life; revive; regenerate; revitalize; breath new life into; bring back to life; reinvigorate; resuscitate; rejuvenate; stimulate; reestablish; relaunch.

So which of these is the meaning of Resurrection in the verse above? I believe the word regenerate is the closest link. Here is Oxfords definition of regenerate.

Regenerateverb – to make something develop and grow strong again; to grow again; to make something grow again.

It’s akin to breathe new life into. In so many words: anything with Life grows; anything without Life does not. So how can a human being’s body, who does not know Yeshua grow??
I believe that anything that comes from the mind of God; His invention knows its master. So in essence our tissues and blood obey their Master and so we grow. The heart beats in accordance to His will. That we can enter into this same will with our own will is the pivotal point to our souls growth or retardation. Thus Yeshua asked Marta…what will you believe?

Yeshua = Life
Yeshua = Resurrection – growth

We see this beautifully explained in John the fifth chapter.

John 5: 19-40

Therefore, Yeshua said this to them: “Yes, indeed! I tell you that the Son cannot do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing; whatever the Father does, the Son does too. For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything He does; and He will show Him even greater things than these, so that you will be amazed. Just as the Father raises the dead and makes them alive, so too the Son makes alive anyone He wants. The Father does not judge anyone but has entrusted all judgement to the Son, so that all may honor the Son as they honor the Father. Whoever fails to honor the Son is not honoring the Father who sent Him. Yes, indeed! I tell you whoever hears what I am saying and trusts the One who sent Me has eternal life – that is, he will not come up for judgement but has already crosses over from death to life! Yes, indeed! I tell you that there is coming a time – in fact, its already here – when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who listen will come to life. For just as the Father has life in Himself, so He has given the Son life to have in Himself. Also He has given Him authority to execute judgement, because He is the Son of Man. Don’t be surprised at all this; because the time is coming when all who are in the grave will hear His voice and come out – those who have done good to a resurrection of Life, and those who have done evil to a resurrection of judgement. I can’t do anything on My own. As I hear, I judge; and My judgement is right; because I don’t seek My own desire, but the desire of the One who sent Me.
If I testify on My own behalf, My testimony is not valid. But there is someone else testifying on My behalf, and I know that the testimony he is making is valid – you have sent to Yochanan (John), and he has testified to the truth. Not that I collect human testimony; rather, I say these things so that you might be saved. He was a lamp burning and shining, and for a little while you were willing to bask in his light.
But I have a testimony that is greater than Yochanan’s. For the things the Father has given Me to do, the very things I am doing now, testify that the Father has sent Me.
In addition, the Father who sent Me has Himself testified on My behalf. But you have never heard His voice or seen His shape, moreover, His word does not stay in you, because you don’t trust the One He sent. You keep examining the Tanakh (scriptures, Old Testament) because you think that in it you have eternal life. Those very Scriptures bear witness to Me, but you won’t come to Me in order to have Life!

Not all things that breathe have Life! Except where the living parts are submitted to the will of all Life. The body may grow but the heart, mind, soul is dead without Yeshua, the Resurrection and the Life! For those with ears to hear…this may be mysterious and hard to grasp but it somehow is understood by the simple accepting it as truth and trusting Yeshua who said it. With the will turned towards the One Will that is constantly being done, the soul becomes alive in the newness of Life that this world can not give even a small view to.

We are all essentially dead but with living bodies that carry us towards the new life Yeshua set forth into motion long before He set Himself into the human mold of containment. He began His Resurrective work far beyond the echoes of King Davids prayers and the resounding folds of the Garden’s gate’s that closed behind Adam and Eve’s exit. Indeed! Regeneration began even as the perfection of the World was formed in the mind of Him who created all living things.

“I Am the Resurrection and the Life! Do you believe this?”

Every word echoes out to every heart with beloved patience and intimate invitation…from Marta to you and me…to all – according to a Promise Keeper who has never; ever broken His word or promises.

Amidst the after glow of the enemy’s dedication to submersion of Yeshua’s arising work on the cross. Past the easter eggs and bunnies…beyond the candy and new fancy attire. Even beyond the refrain of every church service’s sermon…Resurrection and Life blows out like the breath that stirred the dust into a human. Its awakening power is done inside the impossible (to man), shaking awake new life into the will of each man, woman and child. Enabling human minds, wills and hearts to hear the voice their physical bodies have obeyed since He formed them in the womb; and REAL Life begins!! Fully alive we become in Yeshua’s body and blood! What power! Yet it only comes in the acknowledgement of utter weakness! They who have ears…let them hear!!

HE IS RISEN!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
