Last week as I was recording my first 14 episodes of my own tv show, “Empowered for Healing and Miracles” for ISN (Sid Roth’s–It’s Supernatural!) channel, the Lord spoke something to my heart as I was recording one of the shows. He spoke to my heart, “Tell them to unbind themselves from a spirit of death.” And this is what I am going to share with you today, “Unbinding Ourselves From a Spirit of Death.”
I happened to be sharing a four part teaching series about how we raised our son from the dead. And on one particular recording I was teaching about how Jesus rose Lazarus from the dead. Let’s look at this portion of Scripture from John 11:38-44 “So Jesus, again being deeply moved within. came to the tomb. Now it was a cave, and a stone was lying against it. Jesus said, “Remove the stone.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there will be a stench, for he has been dead four days. Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?” So they removed the stone. Then Jesus raised His eyes, and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. I knew that You always hear Me; but because of the people standing around I said it, so that they may believe that You sent Me.” When He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” The man who had died came forth, bound hand and foot with wrappings, and his face was wrapped around with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Unbind him, and let him go.”
Let’s talk about this. The situation in the natural was beyond hope, Lazarus was dead for four days now, and his body was deteriorating quickly. But Jesus, in human form was activating His faith for the impossible. With the power of life and death in His words (see Proverbs 18:21) He cries out with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth.” And he came back from the dead. But you know what? He was stilled wrapped in the garment of death, and he needed to be loosed from this spirit of death. Jesus commands those around to activate their faith, “Unbind him, and let him go.” These are powerful words. He is instructing them to release him from the restraints of death. And we have to do the same with our loved ones. It isn’t enough to speak words of faith, but we must also back up those faith-filled words with action.
I am reminded of a time during our son’s amazing resurrection and recreation of dead body parts. When it came to his lungs, which had come up out of his nose in pieces with his blood and then he was declared dead, and now resurrected and major organs are being supernaturally recreated by faith.
After informing us that it was impossible for Marcos to live, said they were going to start pulling the breathing tubes out of him, and then we would know if his lungs were recreated or not. I remember responding in faith, “We already know, he is healed, and his lungs will breathe on their own.” Yes, the doctor responded with a negative reply, but we held onto our confession of faith. We didn’t fight the fact that we were just told, not asked that they were going to start pulling out his breathing tube. (It takes great faith to unwrap your loved ones from their grave clothes.) Even though, we were witnessing amazing and unexplainable events, being raised from the dead, breathing at first on his own with a heart and lungs that didn’t just stop, but exploded into pieces. And having to fight one death report after another day in and day out, with no other evidence of hope, but faith. And I am telling you, “Faith is the ONLY evidence you need for your miracle.” And often times it will be the only evidence you have.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen, Hebrews 11:1. (NKJV).
Now, you will have many choices to make, one being–“Where will you place your faith?” Will you place your faith in your human reasoning or in your five senses? Or will your faith rest in the report of the Lord? You might be thinking to yourself, “Those are hard choices.” And yes, they may be, but faith doesn’t make things easy, it makes them possible.
Are you willing to unwrap yourself or your loved ones as Mary and Martha did from the grave clothes–that spirit of death that has them bound? They did and their loved one lived. We did, and our loved one lives. The choice is now yours to make. I strongly urge you to “Unbind ourselves from a spirit of death.”
