Scripture: John 14:11-12
We are told in verses 11 and 12, “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” Now the question becomes, are we willing to settle for doing the works Jesus did? Or will we embrace the greater works? The works He did are awesome in nature and very, very practical, from healing sickness and disease to delivering people from oppression. Jesus even prayed and the food was multiplied. These are all realms we can enter by faith, but perhaps the realm that looms largest in the days ahead are the greater works. All the judicial works of Christ qualify as greater works simply because Jesus was not allowed to do them in His earthly walk. Those had to wait until He was seated at the right Hand of God after the ascension. Are we prepared to ask the Lord for greater works? Are we prepared to ask Him for manifestations of the judicial Christ? The supernatural demise of Ananias and Sapphira was a greater work than raising the widow’s son at the city of Nain. It is always a greater work when we have to pray people into the grave for eternity than when we have to pray them into life. The real question is, are we prepared to ask for the greater works? Are we prepared to enter the realm of the judicial Christ? The greater works all address the stopping of evil so that it does not destroy a harvest field. It is not about making a name ourselves but it is about stopping evil before that evil destroys our harvest.
