How to Raise the Dead
Jamie Buckingham Sermon Series #16
The Bible states: “As you go, preach this message: The kingdom of heaven is near. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give” (Matthew 10:7-8).
This is a command that is given to all followers of Jesus Christ. We hear a lot about going out and preaching, about healing and to a lesser degree, driving out demons. But what about raising the dead? Jesus’ words are right there. We are to “raise the dead.” But how do we as Christians go about doing that?
As a believer we can never say that there are some things that are impossible for God. But have we ever considered actually praying for a recently deceased person to be raised back up? It is scriptural and it is possible.
In this booklet, Jamie reviews the 10 recorded instances in the Bible where real people were actually raised from the dead. Then he lists the 3 specific things that must be in place for that to actually occur, things that were common to each of the occurrences in the biblical accounts of people being raised from the dead.
This booklet is taken from a sermon by Jamie Buckingham in January 1979.
