« E-89 † "Where have you laid him?" Ha, ha, ha, ha... Amen. Nothing... I won't... Now, not remember, "I'll go see what I can do about it." "I'll go and wake him." Nothing uncertain about that. That was it, certain. Why? God had told Him so. Right. "I do nothing till My Father shows Me first." Saint John 5:19, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, the Son can do nothing in Himself, but what He sees the Father doing. What the Father does He shows the Son." Amen. Nothing uncertain about that.
"He's dead. He's rotten in the grave, but I'm going to wake him. (Amen.) I'll go wake him." No uncertainty in that's... Remember that, "He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." Nothing uncertain about that. That's as true as God is true. Oh, aren't you glad that He knows you? Aren't you glad that your name's on His Book? "He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." Amen. Whew.
« E-90 † "I am the Resurrection and Life," and I'm in Him. God proved by raising Him up, He will raise me too. I'm already setting in heavenly places, resurrected. It's true as far as God's concerned. "Those who He foreknew, He called. Those who He called, He justified. Those who He has justified, He hath glorified." Amen. Right now, in a--in a stage of glorification, setting in heavenly places in Christ Jesus, in a glorified state, with a power of the resurrection in us has changed us from a sinner to a Christian. Whew. Nothing uncertain about that, no uncertainty.
"How do you know?" It's living in me. How do you know? It's in you. Amen. That's the reason these things are taking place. Nothing uncertain about it: we've passed from death unto Life because we're alive. "He that was dead, though he believeth in Me, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die." All that believes in Him and comes to Him, "I'll give him Eternal Life." Right now, we have Eternal Life and will be raised up at the last days. Whew. My, that's it. Nothing uncertain about that. No, it's already done.
« E-91 † "No man can come to Me except My Father calls him. And all the Father hath given Me will come to Me." How many is Christians, raise your hands? Well, you're already in a glorified state. Amen. "All the Father give Me will come. And all that comes I will in no wise cast out... Give them Eternal Life and raise him up at the last day. I will..."
"Maybe I will."
No. "I will do it." That's a certain sound. That's certain. We're coming forth in a glorified state. "This mortal will put on immortality...?... resurrection." Nothing uncertain. What are we scared about? Ohhh, Hallelujah! Nothing to be excited about--nothing to be--be scared about, I mean. Oh, my, why? It's nothing uncertain; we're certain. "I'll bring him forth... This mortal shall be--take on immortality. It does not yet appear what kind of a body we shall have, but we know we'll have a body like His Own glorious body, for we shall see Him as He is." Amen. Nothing uncertain about it. "We shall see Him." Glory. Nothing uncertain; it's all certain.
Oh, you can go ahead and take that uncertain sound if you want to, but I like the Gospel trumpet that gives a certain sound. What is the Gospel trumpet? Good news. That's right. He's here now. Now, nothing uncertain about it. All right.

« 24 † Jesus said, going to the grave of Lazarus, "I am the resurrection and Life. He that believeth in Me, though he be dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die. Believeth in Me, not on Me, but in Me." Being in Him, believing! "If ye abide in Me and My Words in you." In Him, believing! Oh, my! I hope the Holy Spirit gets that right down to you. Now, you're the little flock, that's why through the week, praying and asking God, I chose this text, to show you where we stand. Believing in Him. You cannot believe in Him until you come in Him, or, He comes in you, then you're believing in Him, then you have Eternal Life. You're believing on Him until you receive Eternal Life, then Eternal Life is God's Life in you, then you're believing in Him.
25 "Ye in Me, I in you. That they might be one, Father, even as You and I are one." God in Christ, Christ in the Church. See? "Just as we are one, so they be one." Then how can you be one? "If ye abide in Me, My Words in you." See, abide! "My Words in you, then ask what you will." For it isn't you no more, it's the Word that's in you, and the Word is God.

« 4 † And that's when He made that wonderful quotation that we have in the Scripture, "He that heareth, he that believeth on Me, has everlasting Life; shall not come into the judgment, but has passed from death unto Life. I am the resurrection and Life. He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me, shall never die." See? Never die! There's no... There's really no death to a Christian.
Death means "Eternal separation."
5 And now as when we are... die, like in the physical body as we are now, we are separated from one another. But, it's really this body is the only thing that identifies us to each other, because we are bound in five senses: see, taste, feel, smell, and hear. And as long as we can see or feel one another, why, we have evidence that we're here. If you're blind and can't, and--and can't see, then you can feel one another, and we... or hear one another. And the earthly senses declare one another.
« 6 † But, really, frankly, we have never seen each other. Did you know that? We have never seen one another. You hear something speaking out of a body here that impersonates whatever it's on the inside. So then when we talk to each other, we're--we're really not talking to the body. It's the spirit inside, but the body is the thing that identifies the spirit that's on the inside. And therefore, when we speak to each other, we are... quickly can understand right away whether we are Christians or not, because there's a fellowship in the spirit that we talk from. You see, that it vibrates to one another that whether we are Christians or not. Therefore we have never seen each other.
« 7 † Jesus. "No man has seen God at any time, but the only begotten of the Father has declared Him." See? In other words, God was identified. The--the Person of God was identified in the Body, the Lord Jesus Christ, so He was the expressed image of God. Or, God expressing Himself through an image, see, through an image, Man. God expressed Himself to us, and He was God. Not a third person or second person; He was the Person, God. He was God Himself, identifying Himself, so we could feel Him.
8 First Timothy 3:16, "Without controversy, that's argument, great is the mystery of godliness, for God was manifested, or made known, in the flesh." Isn't that wonderful? God! And we could never understand God as He moved through a Pillar of Fire, and so forth, as He did. But we understood Him when He become one of us, see, when He become Man. Then He could talk to us, and we could feel Him, handle Him, touch Him, and everything. And as the Scripture plainly says that "we have handled God," see, with our hands, touched Him with our hands.
« 9 † God is in man. And He's identifying Himself today in His church. In the born-again Christian, God identifies Himself, that He remains God. And the outside world will only know God as they see God in you and I. That's the only way that they'll know God, is when we are written epistles, epistle of the Scripture, we are read of all men. And the life that we live reflects what's on the inside of us. A man is identified by the works that he does. So our works should be good, see, always good, because we are representing our Lord Jesus Christ.
10 What a wonderful thing that is, especially when a--an old man like me stand here and--and think of the life that is fading away, that's gone in the past, and--and we're facing a future of an Eternity. And knowing if this life only is what I had hopes in, I would be a most miserable person this morning. But knowing that this life has only been a--a shadow of what we had to--to come. It's a reflection, because it can not be the perfect thing that God made. God doesn't make anything that perishes. See? God is Eternal. And, therefore, this life that we now live in, is only reflecting what is ahead of us. The real one that cannot die. The body that cannot perish. The Life that cannot be taken. See? And therefore the Scriptures is right, when It says that we have everlasting Life, we have Eternal Life. We shall never die. See, because you become... When you're borned again, you become a part of God. See, you are forever for Eternity, never to fail. You are part of God, 'cause you're His son.
