Who will Jesus raise from the dead?

The Raising of Lazarus
Raising of Lazarus painting by Alessandro Magnasco

“Let it sink in who we are dealing with here.”

Michael Jackson, Ted Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and Julius Caesar. Will God raise them from the dead?

John 5:25 Truly, truly, I say to you, an hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself. 27 And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. 28 Do not marvel at this, for an hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment

John Piper once delivered a message that really struck me. In his message he discusses resurrection. The dead are all raised, every one of them, to judgment. The just, and the unjust. This is a pure demonstration of the power of God and how His resurrecting power will bring those who know His Son, and those who have rejected Him to life again.

Please enjoy this brief compilation of the best part of this message combined with music in this “Sermon Jam.”

I love writing about books, theology, and the Kingdom of God. I also enjoy viewing my vocation through a biblical lens. It is here at Seeking A Kingdom that I aim to hash out my thoughts on all these things.
