John 5

John 5

“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. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself.  And he has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.”

John 5:25-27

The hour is coming when the dead shall see life. Does that sound weird? The fact is–that is exactly what will happen. Paul says when the Lord descends from heaven, “those that are dead, will rise out of the grave, and we who are alive, will be caught up into the air, to ever be with the lord!” WOW, that is going to be mind-blowing! To see all of those who have trusted in Jesus before their deaths, come alive again!

God has given Jesus the authority to not only give life, but to execute judgment. He has the power to give life and to take it away. In Jesus’ hands are life and redemption; yet also the keys to both Hell and death. Jesus will rule as Redeemer and Judge.

This is our Commander, the One who grants life and who executes judgment righteously. Let us follow Him, no matter how dark the battle may seem. “For we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” (Romans 8:37)
