Luke 7:14 “…And he said Young man, I say unto thee, Arise”
Jesus who we have seen earlier as the resurrection and life finally gave a command to the dead man. He said, “Young man, I say unto thee, Arise” and the man came back to life.
Jesus didn’t speak much grammar, he only issued a statement of command which was “Arise”. It was a potent command, we saw it in operation in different instances in the bible such as in the case of Peter and John at the Beautiful gate (Acts 3:6).
I discovered that the Greek word interpreted “Arise” have different interpretations, such as: rise up from sitting or lying, from disease, from death, from sleep, from obscurity, inactivity and ruins. It also means to awake, lift up, rear up, take up and stand, and to become active or vocal.
Guess what? It was a similar word that was used in the beginning:
Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and MAN BECAME a living soul.”
In Genesis after the Lord breath into man, he “became” a living soul, in order words man “arose” or became active. When man fell in Genesis 3, he became a dead soul but Jesus came to re-deem us or re-connect us back to God. So, when he spoke to this young man, he was simply re-connected back to source.
Beloved, all you need in life is a word of command so that you can arise and Jesus is that Word. When you speak “the Word” to any dead situation it gets re-connected back to the source of power and become active. Hear this:
John 5:25 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming and now is when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live”
It is time for things in your life to start hearing the voice of the Son of God.
To be continued…
