Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19)
The Seven “I Wills” of Christ
Everything Christ has promised to do, He is able and willing to accomplish; and He is going to do it.
Then there is another I will in John, sixth chapter, verse forty; it occurs four times in the chapter:“I will raise him up at the last day.”
I rejoice to think that I have a Savior who has power over death. My blessed Master holds the keys him, and I got more comfort out of that promise “I will raise him up at the last day,” than anything else in the Bible. How it cheered me! How it lighted up my path! And as I went into the room and looked upon the lovely face of that brother, how that passage ran through my soul: “Thy brother shall rise again.” I said, “Thank God for that promise.”It was worth more than the world to me.
When we laid him in the grave, it seemed as if I could hear the voice of Jesus Christ saying, “Thy brother shall rise again.” Blessed promise of the resurrection! Blessed “I will!” “I will raise him up at the last day.”
