One thing I've been told for 20yrs, easily, is to look up every single Scripture where someone got raised from the dead & stand on 'em by faith 'til I'd received the wisdom of God & manifestations of that anointing through my own ministry.
I've received some manifestations of that anointing through my own ministry, (several, actually,) but I was always shy about opening myself up to warfare with everyone around me dropping like flies 'cause of pressure being put on that truth by the Devil, himself, trying to steal what revelations I was getting out of the Word on that, the way some people discover the truth of the healing in the atonement before some horrendous diagnoses or learn about Christ's Covenant to make you financially wealthier than Solomon RIGHT AS they enter a season where they financially go down like the Titanic 'cause of Satan coming immediately to steal that Word!
Didn't want the heat of having to deal with that, is a lion's share of the reason I don't have 52 articles on my website on the subject of raising the dead. I've already known I'd outlive everyone in my life by eons, whether they were a part of my life in the 20th Century or the 21st Century, so why have to face those issues before I have to? That was my subconscious reasoning on the matter. It was disobedience and insubordination to my Commission from God; total rebellion.
Implicit might of been a promise of being able to have everyone in my life that's ever been in it, by stirring that up, since usually the area you dread is where God's making His biggest promises He'll ever make to you personally, but the Devil's driving a wedge if we're foolish enough to let him.
I knew THAT too, all of these yrs, but just didn't want to have to mess with it, 'cause clearly at some point is a Smith Wigglesworth story of disrupting a funeral, BADLY! I've never liked drawing attention to myself & my leeriness over the yrs has proven justified, more than justified, the last 3yrs with things I've found out about foolishness around me!!
Can't get around this particular issue any longer. This issue of raising 'em from the dead, physically, has to come front and center and be a frontline aspect of this ministry; what it's known for!
25 Now there are many other things also, which Jesus does, which, if they should be written, one by one, I am surmising not even the world itself would contain the written scrolls. (John 21:25 Concordant Literal New Testament)
52 and the tombs were opened. And many bodies of the reposing saints were roused,
53 and, coming out of the tombs after His rousing, they entered into the holy city and are disclosed to many. (Matthew 27:52-53 Concordant Literal New Testament)
Lord Jesus kept on raising the dead after His own resurrection! Says after His resurrection He raised MANY from their tombs! Also it says in Revelation 20:4-5 WHY there's a literal thousand year reign that we reign with Christ and what we're doing the whole thousand years: we're raising the dead THE ENTIRETY of the thousand years: 4 And I perceived thrones, and they are seated on them, and judgment was granted to them. And the souls of those executed because of the testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who do not worship the wild beast or its image, and did not get the emblem on their forehead and on their hand- they also live and reign with Christ a thousand years." 5 (The rest of the dead do not live until the thousand years should be finished.) This is the former resurrection.
This subject of raising the dead makes me believe in a very literal thousand years, as a Postmillennialist, now that the Scriptures are CLEARER on what we'll be doing the whole of a thousand years! Each of us doing what we've got to do with absolutely everywhere they're buried!!
Can you imagine taking a thousand years to raise the dead? That's gotta be into the tens of thousands of 'em for each one of us, plus all of the teaching we're doing along the way with teaching mortals how to live by the Scriptures and avoid death to start with!!
