ROLL AWAY THE STONE

John 11:39, 41 KJV
Jesus said, TAKE YE AWAY THE STONE. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. [41] Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

Lazarus had been dead and buried for 4 days before Jesus came. A huge stone had been rolled across the tomb mouth. When Jesus instructed them to roll away the stone from the mouth of the tomb, even the Martha the dead man’s sister protested.  What the people around didn’t realize was that the dead Lazarus had already risen at the sound of Jesus voice. His voice referring to His Word and Sound raises the dead every time. (John 5: 25)

To confirm this, when they eventually rolled away the stone, notice what Jesus said.

John 11:43 KJV
And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, COME FORTH.

Jesus did not say “Lazarus receive life” or “Lazarus , get up”. He said “Come out”.  This was because Lazarus was already alive at the sound of the voice of Jesus. The only thing that was holding him back was the stone. The stone is a picture of hopelessness. It made even his weeping sister to give up on the dead Lazarus. Lazarus was held in by 2 things - The grave clothes he was tightly wrapped in and the stone across the mouth of the tomb. The moment these were removed, he visibly lived and was celebrated.

Perhaps relatives and friends have given up on you because you seem financially dead but I want you to know that Jesus has already given you life. You are alive but merely bound by and wrapped in the grave clothes of yesterday’s failures. You are merely held back by the stone of guilt and condemnation from the accusing voice of the law.

Jesus has already blessed you with the resurrected life. You’ve received all your heart’s desire but people can’t see it yet because the guilt of legalism is blocking your rising.

Do you remember the Law of Moses was written on stone? It was a hindrance to the manifestation of life.

Galatians 3:21 KJV
“......for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law”

Even though Christ has given us Life, Health and Wealth, the law written on stone tablets blocks the flow of that life and hinders the full enjoyment of all that Christ died to give us. That is why the stone of the Law in your heart must be rolled away.

This is your year of all round rising THEREFORE I command the stone of legalism and performance in your heart to be rolled away. The Life of Christ is In you, the billionaire’s potential in you awaits your agitation. Roll away the stone. Rise into a brand new day. Jesus has set you free from the past failures. I hear him say “Loose him from the grave clothes of regrets of the past and let him go and prosper”.  Refuse to stay in the past this year. Stop the reverse movement in your mind. Engage the gear of a bright future ahead of you.

Tear of your grave clothes and walk out of the burial place of past failures, experiences and disappointments into the sunshine of God’s Love, Grace and Breakthroughs. Hallelujah!!!

The night is over with its terrors of imaginary demons and dark dreams. The sunlight of a new day beckons you to a higher life of Favour, Blessing and Multiple Testimonies.

The highest level of liberty is the declaration of the Son. Jesus has released you from every contrary report and verdict of death and financial failure. His declaration is “My beloved, come forth NOW!!!” Walk out on poverty, sickness, stagnation and frustration. Stand fast in the liberty that Christ has given you and refuse to accept any form of bondage ever again. YOU ARE FREE TO LIVE FULLY AND PROSPER RICHLY!!!

See it, receive it, embrace it,  celebrate it and truly start living it. 

I’ll see you at the top.

Shalom.
