Deliverance from Death (3 of 10)
Series: A Mighty Savior
I want you to turn this morning to John 11:39 as we continue a series of messages entitled ''A Mighty Savior.'' And today I want to preach on ''Deliverance From Death.'' Last week we talked about deliverance from the devil and about Legion who was possessed by the devil. And how Jesus delivered him. And today we are going to talk about ''Deliverance From Death.'' John 11:39, the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. Jesus is a mighty Savior and people today need a mighty Savior. They need a church that claims a mighty Savior. And lifts up a mighty Savior because all about us, the devil is showing his hand and showing what he can do and we as the people of God need to be proclaiming what Christ can do and exemplifying what Christ can do, amen? We need to show the world a mighty Savior.
J.D. Phillips translation of verse 40 says this, ''if only you would believe, you would see the wonder of what God can do.'' And this morning if only you will believe, you can see the wonder of what God will do in your life, in your situation.

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die....'' That is the message of this miracle from a mighty Savior that he who lives and believes in Jesus will never, never, never die.
I. A MAN WHO IS DEAD
