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”
Another point to note here is that the word “Arise” as used in our focal scripture has the ‘A’ in capital letter. This created a little confusion in me while I was studying until the Holy Spirit suddenly opened me up to what He kept there.
The use of this capital letter shows that the word “Arise” was used here as a noun not a verb.
We know from elementary English language that a noun is a word or group of words used as the name of a class of people, places, or things, or of a specific person, place, or thing.
A verb on the other hand, is used in indicating an action or state. It is used either to show that an action is taking place or to indicate the existence of a state or condition.
We therefore capitalize the first letter of a noun when used within the context of a sentence but not so for verbs. So, what has this got to do with us, seeing we are not in an English class?
The gist is this; Jesus renamed the scenario or situation. He gave the situation another name. He called the situation a name of what he wanted to see! The people have named the situation death, he changed it to Arise.
Friend, we have all been given the same mandate, right from the first Adam, remember this episode:
Genesis 2:19 “And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.”
Genesis 2:20 “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.”
To be continued…
