Greetings in the name of Our LORD and Sovereign (Our [God] Father who is in heaven, for hallowed is HIS name.) through HIS Son (my Lord), Jesus - the Christ, and on HIS Account I bid Each One, and All of You, that "Blessings attend Each One, and All of You, that the King of Kings; being the High Priest of Melchizedek forever and the Prince of Peace, give Each One, and All of You, that peace which passes all mortal understanding (and wisdom) and when Each One of All of You has finished Your course (being of memorable, full, and rich days) before the LORD on earth may the KING OF GLORY welcome You to HIS Glorious Kingdom in the name of HIS Son - Jesus; the High Priest of Melchizedek, Amen. [PSALMS 34:9-11] O fear the Lord, you His saints; For to those who fear Him, there is no want. The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the Lord shall not be in want of any good thing. Come, you children, listen to me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.[ ] CONFRONTATIONS WITH THE SON OF GOD, JOHN 5:1-12:50: At Bethany: 11:1-12:11 [The Miraculous sign, JOHN 11:1-44] (Your attention is directed to "Concerning what went on with Mary and her sister Martha concerning Lazarus when speaking with Jesus")[ ] ==>> In those times it was, for the Jewish community, common instruction of the knowledge of the "resurrection on the third day". Jesus was living, Lazarus had become sick and died. The [divine] nature of Jesus allowed the for (see JOHN 11:11-15) the resurrection of Lazarus as had he not "stayed then two days longer in the place He was (excerpt: JOHN 11:6 (NASB))" Lazarus would have been resurrected on the third day - Jesus couldn't (wouldn't) afford that knowing His Purpose ... so - he remained two more days so Lazarus could (would) be resurrected on the fourth day. Martha states "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died (excerpt: JOHN 11:21 (NASB))." and further states "Even now I know that whatever You ask of God, God will give You (JOHN 11:22 (NASB)).". Take note of verses 23-24. Jesus then next proceeds to clarify His-self to Martha in verses 25-26 ("I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (NASB)) and in verse 27 Martha stresses [face to face] her belief in Him to Him and note that the belief she stresses is "in past tense" - not as though she just learned it. In verse 28: Martha then whisks away to Mary, her sister, and secretly speaks to Mary (because of all those present consoling [see verse 31] her for Lazarus' death). Mary, in verse 32, even after secretly speaking with her sister prior uses the same statement as Martha from verse 21: "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died." Jesus, beside being deeply moved, became troubled with what was transpiring around Him concerning those He loved, see verse 33. Mary and Martha replied "Yes" to question of "Do you believe?" yet they both stated "if only You had been here" (note the word "if") in direct contradiction to their professed absolute belief (even straight-out to Emmanuel (Jesus)). "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. "But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him (excerpt: JOHN 11:9-10 (NASB))."
