Key Verses: John 12:10-11, 31

But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus… Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.


Like Lazarus, we who believe in Jesus have been raised from the dead. Ephesians 2:1 describes us as “dead in trespasses and sins,” but now “made alive.” We are living proof that Jesus is real and that He brings new life where there was death.

Our second key verse declares the reality of what happened at the cross. The world, with its pride and rejection of God, mistakenly thought it was judging Jesus. The opposite is true. God was judging the world by the way it treated His Son. The so-called “ruler of this world” thought he was the winner, but again the opposite is true. The pretender to the throne was cast out. Jesus is King. His eternal Kingdom was established forever and ever. Amen!


Jesus, You are Lord of all. Grant that I may demonstrate that I’ve come out of the grave and discarded the grave clothes. May my life be the proof that You judged the world and deposed its ruler. I celebrate my new life with great joy. Thank You, Jesus! Amen!


I thank you who send me a reply. I read what you have written. The best way to get answers is by asking your Pastor or a Bible teacher at your local congregation. You can critique what I have written with your friends on facebook, or better still, in a home Bible study with your brothers and sisters in Christ. If you start a home study group, get the blessing of your church. Beware of false teachers who may come to your door or who may be on radio or TV. There is protection in the fellowship of a church which is affiliated with an established denomination. Here in Canada, you can check the website of The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada for affiliated churches. Also, there are local congregations of the historic denominations which may not be a part of the EFC, but they are true to the historic Christian faith. Check out the church.

Yours for the glory of the One Who said, “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself” (John 12:32),

  1. Thank you Pastor, I read your blog daily. And a big thank you to you for prayer received at your healing service. You anointed my grandson with oil, Cayden who is four, and prayed for his esophageous. He is now allowed to eat soft food and to drink!! Praise Jesus!!!
    Thank you pastor for your faithful service to God. May God bless you and your family in every way.

  2. Good pic of Jerusalem and wherever else that is. Pics of that area are confusing to me. The towns (or cities) all seem to blend into each other.
    I’m guessing the Pharisees were just plain jealous and afraid of Jesus. They didn’t want to lose their power and authority over the people? How sad; not to mention shameful.
    I’m honoured to have you read my ramblings Rev. DM and certainly understand that you couldn’t answer all my questions. Not sure I envy your busy, busy lifestyle but thank Jesus for you and your kind. May God bless you and yours always.
    Blessings on all fellow bloggers.

  3. I saw Randy Clark on 100 Huntley Street last year. Even bought one of his books online through their book store. He is a Faith Healer. Most often he shares his faith and holds revivals in Brazil… I befriended him on Facebook.

    Here is a recent clip of miraculous healing in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ…

  5. My husband starts chemo next week. We had our flu shots today (as per doctor) and prescriptions were dropped off. He has to start taking a pill before going to the hospital for the chemo and another one for the day of, and the day after. We are both so tired! I guess it is because when you are married (we 56 yrs) and you are one, what affects the one, affects both! Anyway, I am keeping up with the reading and blog and I am so thankful for it. I did hear from Carole who had been under the weather for a while. I pray she will continue to improve and be strengthened. Amen.

  6. thank you Doreen for your very honest prayer! God bless your marriage! May God lead Ross to total healing! I declare that there will be a BIG celebration when it is revealed that the cancer is GONE! In Jesus Name
