Something We Can Know
| There are many
things we can know of the past and present because we have experienced
them. There is also something we can know by faith because of the
evidence. When Jesus went to raise Lazarus from the dead He told Martha,
"Thy brother shall rise again." She responded, "I know that
he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day" (John 11).
Of course, Jesus knew He would raise Lazarus to life as He did, but He also assured Martha that all those who believe on Him shall be raised. He taught this also in John 5: 28, 29, "Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."
Because Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, we can know this will occur. Can you see how important it is to believe in Jesus Christ?
