Luke 7:14 “And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still And he said Young man, I say unto thee, Arise”
In our focal scripture, Jesus made a rather “bizarre” statement. He said, “…YOUNG MAN, I say unto thee, Arise”. That statement contradicted what was earlier written by Luke.
Luke 7:12 “…behold there WAS A DEAD MAN carried out the only son of his mother…”
Something to note here is that the writer of this account was a medical doctor by profession. His name was Dr. Luke. He knows the difference between a dead person and a living one. He said categorically that the person was a dead man and of course you don’t put a sleeping man inside a coffin but Jesus’ statement completely negate that.
Beloved, Dr. Luke just like every other person, saw this guy as a dead man but not Jesus, who rather saw him as a young man that is alive. You don’t tell a dead man to arise by the way.
Here is the gist, men see things as they are but God always see things the way they could and should be! People may see your condition as hopeless and beyond remedy but not God.
God operates in the realm of faith. Any position can be changed and things can always turn for the better. Nothing is impossible with God. When men see you in the natural, God sees you in destiny. Hear this:
Romans 4:17 “(As it is written I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were”
Romans 4:17 “…Abraham was first named “father” and then became a father because he dared to trust God to do what only God could do: raise the dead to life, with a word make something out of nothing.” (MSG)
Jesus didn’t just call him a young man, he activated a powerful principle.
To be continued…
