Two men were talking together, when one said 'they are planning to kill him'....and I went over and confronted these men to say to stop giving power to these words. The understanding I had been given was that it was a prophesy told already and the Jews knew that prophesies were to be fulfilled.
Since the message and with the message heart to hear, soul to soul from Jesus this morning, I was guided to the scripture written in John 11. Sharing here in the entirety so that it can be read and understood.
This is the scripture that validates the prophesy told to me in the dream.....Lazarus also came to mind as being Greek
With named having meaning, "Lazarus" (Latinised from Hebrew: אלעזר, Elʿāzār, Eleazar—"God is my help"
According to OrthodoxWiki it is written of Lazarus
Bishop of Kition
According to Scripture and the tradition of the Cypriot church, Lazarus was compelled to seek refuge away from Jerusalem to avoid the anger of the high priests and the pharisees, who wanted to kill him, ...the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death; because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed in Jesus (John 12:10-11). Many Christians too ... were scattered abroad upon the persecution that arose about. Stephen travelled as far as Phoenicia, and Cyprus, and Antioch ...; just like Stephen, Lazarus would have had to leave Judea to seek refuge in another country. This location was Kition in Cyprus.
When Apostle Paul and Apostle Barnabas travelled to Cyprus, they ordained Lazarus as the first Bishop of Kition. This is why all episcopal thrones in Larnaca have the icon of St. Lazarus instead of Christ, which is the standard custom of the church.
Another famous tradition related to Lazarus, is the discovery of Mount Athos in 52 AD by the Theotokos. Lazarus was very close to the Virgin Mary and he was very grieved that he could not return to Jerusalem to visit her (he was still in fear of the Jews). The Theotokos learned of his sorrow and sent him a letter to comfort him. She asked that he might send a ship to her that she might visit him in Cyprus. With great joy, Lazarus sent a ship to the Holy Land to bring the Virgin Mary and John, the beloved disciple to Cyprus for a visit. However on their journey, a great storm blew them off course and carried them to the shores of Ephesus and then the ship to the shores of Athos, Greece. Unaware that divine providence had brought her to this area, the Virgin Mary completely taken by the beauty of the area, prayed to her son that this could be her garden devoted to prayer to "fight the good fight of faith". Having converted, blessed and established a new Christian community from the local idolaters they set sail for Cyprus and met with Lazarus.
Further establishing the apostolic nature of Lazarus' appointment, was the tradition that the bishop's omophorion and epimanikia were presented to Lazarus by the Virgin Mary, who had woven it herself.[note 5]
Little more is known about Lazarus after Our Lord's Resurrection and Ascension, except that during his thirty years after his resurrection, he never smiled or joked except on one occasion, recorded in the Synaxarion. One day, he saw someone stealing a clay pot and he smiled saying, "the clay steals the clay".
The second tomb on the island of Cyprus, was found in Kition sometime in 890 AD, with his relics inside, and bearing the inscription: "Lazarus, the Friend of Christ."
Little by little this has been a learning journey for me..
Sharing now openly that we can together understand more
The people of the time have been shown certain lessons and experience will show what is possible past and present time. With man's lust for power - his quest to resurrect life as Jesus did is to claim divine right of kings and so therefore rule the world as God's chosen one...But there is something he forgot to do!
The man who is focussed on power and control is a deceiver.
Jesus Christ relinquished desire for power...He is selfless.
Praying that we can live in a world of peace with healing.
Peace be with you
