Sweden will Rise

“Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up.” (John 11:11 NKJV)

I felt in my heart that God was speaking in the context of Sweden. The name Lazarus means: he who God helps. Secondly Lazarus was loved by Jesus (Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.” (John 11:3) Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. (John 11:5 NKJV)

At the beginning of the weekend God made clear that He is helping Sweden and those who make themselves available to bring His kingdom to this nation. Sweden has a special place in the heart of God and it is a nation that God loves. The nation is asleep, but Jesus says "I go that I may wake Sweden up".

Hearing the cry of His people about the 'sickness of Sweden', his heart is not troubled, but he responds:

"This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” (John 11:4 NKJV)

Jesus stayed two more days at the place where He was before He went to Judea. When he came there Martha talked to Jesus concerning the death of her brother. His answer to her was:"Your brother will rise again.” (John 11:9, 23 NKJV)

Both Jönköping and Sweden shall rise again!

In our work and prayer for the restoration of Jönköping and Sweden the answer for new life and resurrection is found in the coming of Jesus himself, His presence, His Spirit and His Word.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life"(John 11:25 NKJV)

When Mary came  to Jesus she said the same thing to Him as Martha:

"Then, when Mary came where Jesus was, and saw Him, she fell down at His feet, saying to Him, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” (John 11:25, 32 NKJV)

When he heard this, Jesus' heart got troubled and He wept. He went to the tomb and told the people to take away the stone. I felt in my heart that because of the obedience towards God to have the weekend, a stone that kept Sweden (Jonkoping) in its grave had already been moved the moment the weekend begone.  I noticed that it was not Jesus who moved the stone in front of the grave, but those who obeyed His voice. 

and to those who doubt what will happen, Jesus says:  “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” (John 11:25, 32, 40 NKJV)

Then Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.” (John 11:43, 44)

With a loud voice Jesus cries out: Sweden, come forth! This cry of Jesus is what the weekend launched and released as we stood in agreement with what God is speaking. Sweden is arising and is coming out of the tomb, out of darkness into the light. Now Jesus is calling His people to release Sweden from it's bounds and grave clothes, and says: "loose Sweden, and let here go". 

Sweden shall be loosed from its bounds and grave clothes and shall be released into Europe as a witness for the glory of Jesus Christ. 

"This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God may be glorified through it.” (John 11:4 NKJV)
