Let’s Talk About “the Bucket” | July 14, 2019

 

Memento Mori
A Latin phrase—Remember you will die.”
How do you want to die?… like Grandpa?
We used to look at this differently (Litany of the Saints)
Now we say, “He kicked the bucket, etc.”

 

The “World” Has An opinion (Pastor Jeff Hinds) (not according to…)
Atheism— nothing | Hebrews 9:27; John 11:25
Reincarnation—over & over | Hebrews 9:27
Soul-Sleep—I’ll wait for You here | Luke 23:43; 2 Corinthians 5:6-9
Purgatory—Painful but worth it… | Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 10:14

 

Jesus Raises Lazarus to Life | John 11:1-44

 

Which Light Are We Using to Navigate?
This sickness will not end in death
A man who walks by day will not stumble
There are two meanings here…
In plain words, “Lazarus is dead.” LEO Death Notifications

 

We live by “sight”, not by “faith” (if we’re being honest)
I know God will give you whatever you ask
I know about the resurrection on the last day
Jesus is the Resurrection & the Life… even TODAY !
And He is compassionate… He weeps

 

Reality Confronted
4 days… he will stink!
There is something from Heaven happening here
Jesus is in charge, “Lazarus, come out!”
The world rejects the Author of life

 

Death—An Enemy… and a Friend
From beginning to the end | Genesis 2:17; 1 Corinthians 15:26
Enemy to the unbeliever—Friend to the believer
BUT… weep with those who weep …like Job’s friends | Romans 12:15
“Where, O death is your victory?…” | 1 Corinthians 15:54b-58
