John 11:43 ” Jesus called out in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’ “

When Jesus shouted into that grave, He was taking divine authority over death.  And this wasn’t the only time He did this.  In Luke 7:14 He raised back to life the only son of a widow when He touched the coffin and said, “Young man, I say to you, get up!”  And when He ordered the dead daughter of Jairus to, “Get up!”… she did. (Luke 8:54)  But His disciples were also witnesses to these miracles…and their faith grew with each one. For we find in Acts 9:40, Peter was called to pray for a lovely old woman by the name of Dorcas, a devote Follower, who had died.   Under the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit within, Peter repeated the same words of Jesus, “Get up!”…and Dorcas came back to life.
