John 11:4 ” ‘Lord the one You love is sick.’ When He heard this, Jesus said, ‘This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.’ “

Jesus isn’t denying that Lazarus would die…He was rather denying that death itself would triumph. From the start, the Lord’s intention was to vanquish death…swallowed up in victory, or as He asked, “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” (Hosea 13:14) And with this, God’s sovereign rule over the whole of history would be shown as death was forced to give back one it had taken.
