Lazarus' resurrection and the resurrection of Matthew 27

John 11: 43: And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

The resurrection of Lazarus happened approximately one week before Jesus was crucified.

If Jesus had said, “Come forth”, then all the saints in Paradise would have resurrected.

Jesus called Lazarus by name from the grave; his resurrection is a type of the Bride who has had Her name called by the message of a prophet in this last age, bringing us forth from a denominational grave.


Matthew 27: 50 - 53: Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

The resurrection of Matthew 27 in this illustration is a type of the general resurrection in Revelation 20 in which all of humanity (excluding the Bride of the seven church ages) is resurrected for the Great White Throne of Judgment.

The order of events here is this: first, there is the resurrection of a people (the Bride) who have been called by name (“Lazarus, come forth”) because their names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life; secondly, there is the general resurrection (“Come forth” …no specific name is given) of all who ever lived whose names are not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
