John 11:6 Yet when He heard that Lazarus was sick, He stayed where He was two more days. NIV
My friends the timing of The Lord is NOT our perception of time. What we perceive perfect/appointed time to be is not the timing of The Lord. The word kairos comes to us from the Greek word for time. It literally means, the SET Timing of The Lord, an appointed time in the purpose of God. Merriam Webster says that kairos is a time when conditions are right for the accomplishment of a crucial action: the opportune and decisive moment. In the book of John chapter 11(using my spiritual imagination), Martha and Mary had an urgency and was devastated that their brother was sick. They knew that if anyone could fix this catastrophe it would be Jesus. In fact, they wanted Jesus to make haste before things got worse. BUT, and I paraphrase, "after hearing that Lazarus was sick, Jesus stayed where he was a little while longer". Oh my!!! Really!!! Why? Lazarus is Dying, we NEED You NOW Lord!!! That is what many of us are saying right NOW. Lord I have prayed to You, where are You? My situation is sick and dying and it appears that it can't be resurrected. But let us take a backwards flip back up to John 11:4, Jesus clearly says that this sickness(your circumstance, problem, situation, unemployed state) will not end in death!!! Jesus goes on to say that, "no it is for God's Glory so that God's Son may be glorified through it." Come on here Glory!!! Hello Somebody!!! In fact, when we REMOVE ourselves from the issue, God can "sho-Nuff" show Himself Mighty and Strong in our life. He sees and knows ALL, it is His appointed and perfect time. In short, Lazarus was sick and did die(your circumstance/situation). What is taking place in your life is simple, where is your faith?? What belief system are you clinging on?? John 11, verse 4 clearly tells us that this is NOT over, this is NOT a death point/place. Let me help you understand it a little bit better, "IT AIN'T OVER"!!!!!! Jesus was 2 miles away from where Lazarus was(verse 18). Jesus said, "your brother will rise again"(verse 23). In essence, Jesus is not far, and you WILL Rise, Come Forth, Come Out and the Glory SHALL be REVEALED!!! The Time has been set, for you and your situation. Get your Judah(praise) on because, Jesus is 2 miles(not far) away!!!
Resurrection Time, God's Set Appointed Time!! Kairos Time!!! Glory Time!!! Oh Yeah!!! QDJ
