1. Can you endure the period of nothing happening until something happens in your life your world?
2. What must you do between the period of nothing happening until something happens in your life your world?
3. You hope against hope, and how do we hope against hope we live life vicariously.
A. Vicarious: Experienced, felt, realized, or enjoyed through imagined participation in the experience of another.
John 5:19-21 (AMPC)
So Jesus answered them by saying, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the Son is able to do nothing of Himself (of His own accord); but He is able to do only what He sees the Father doing, for whatever the Father does is what the Son does in the same way [in His turn]. 20 The Father dearly loves the Son and discloses to (shows) Him everything that He Himself
does. And He will disclose to Him (let Him see) greater things yet than these, so that you may marvel and be full of wonder and astonishment. 21 Just as the Father raises up the dead and gives them life [makes them live on], even so the Son also gives life to whomever He wills and is pleased to give it.
JESUS LIVED VICARIOUSLY AS BEING RAISED FROM THE DEAD:
John 11:24-27 (NKJV) Martha said to Him, I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. 25 Jesus said to her, I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this? 27 She said to Him, Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.
Revelation 1:18 (NKJV)
I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.
Revelation 1:18 (AMPC)
And the Ever-living One [I am living in the eternity of the eternities]. I died, but see, I am alive forevermore; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead).
