God’s Word Can Resurrect a Dead Man. A Commentary on John 11:43

And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

– John 11:43

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Whenever reading the Bible story of the Lord Jesus’ resurrection of Lazarus, I can feel God is so almighty that He even brought the dead back to life with one word. In this story, we can see the almightiness of God in His words. God’s words are full of authority and power. God’s words say, “When the Lord Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead, He used one line: ‘Lazarus, come forth.’ He said nothing aside from this—what do these words represent? They represent that God can accomplish anything through speaking, including resurrecting a dead man. When God created all things, when He created the world, He did so with words. He used spoken commands, words with authority, and just like that all things were created. It was accomplished like that. This single line spoken by the Lord Jesus was just like the words spoken by God when He created the heavens and earth and all things; it equally held the authority of God, the ability of the Creator. All things were formed and stood fast because of words from God’s mouth, and just the same, Lazarus walked out from his tomb because of the words from the Lord Jesus’ mouth. This was the authority of God, demonstrated and realized in His incarnate flesh. This type of authority and ability belonged to the Creator, and to the Son of man in whom the Creator was realized. This is the understanding taught to mankind by God bringing Lazarus back from the dead. That’s all on this topic.
