lazarus


When he had said this, Jesus called in a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out!" The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face.
Jesus said to them, "Take off the grave clothes and let him go." John 11: 43, 44

this is perhaps the best known recorded back-to-life miracle that Jesus performed. the guy has been dead for 4 days & already buried in a cave. yet, the Lord resurrected him to life.

my patient whose life was hanging by a thread, & not much more, has by some inexplicable reason, recovered. from being comatosed, on life-support machine & numerous tubes stuck into him, he's now awake albeit a bit dazed, & about to have his 1st meal for days.

my colleagues
are scratching their heads & trying to figure out what had happened. i could have told them it was divine intervention but....

from a grave prognosis (with one foot already in!), he's now back to life. let's just call him lazarus, shan't we?

Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost!

Feel like singing this Doxology!

So, what's in a name?

I've seen miracle happens when doctors give little or no hope, patient recovers & some doctors (perhaps are non-believers) have no answer.

We can have the best doctors, latest drugs, life support machine whatever, at the end of the day God decides if its time to go, its Time to go.
