It was only three words. Three very powerful words.
Death signals finality, ending, goodbye. Those three words must cause the most sorrow and pain one can experience in this life.
But Jesus spoke three of the most powerful words human beings have ever heard: “Lazarus, come out!” (John 11:43). Then, a man who had been dead for four days walked out of his tomb dragging his grave clothes behind him.
Jesus told Lazarus’ sister, Martha, that if she believed she would see the glory of God. Then Jesus spoke those three words and Lazarus came out of the tomb.
This was the most spectacular event before or since!
But Jesus has something even more amazing waiting for humanity. One day, the Christ will raise every person who has ever lived and died. Millions and millions of people will hear the voice of God the Son and shall come out of their graves, tombs, and vaults. By his word, those still living will be changed (1 Corinthians 15:52).
All of humanity will attend one final meeting together in which all will be judged before the one, true God.
On which side will you stand? Will you take your place with the redeemed of all ages, or with the condemned? The choice is yours. Make your decision to obey the gospel before you hear those three words on the last day of earth.
