“What are the ‘Greater Works’ – 101” …Blog.
*** (John 14:6-to-18) Jesus said to him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me.
(John 14:7) If you had known Me; you would have known My Father also. And from now on you know Him and have seen Him.
(John 14:8) Philip said to Him, Lord, show us the Father; and it is enough for us.
(John 14:9) Jesus said to him, Have I been with you such a long time and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. And how do you say, Show us the Father?
(John 14:10) Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in Me? The Words that I speak to you I do not speak of Myself, but the Father who dwells in Me, He does the works.
(John 14:11) Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me; or else believe Me for the very works themselves.
(John 14:12) Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes on Me; the works that I do he shall do ‘Also’, and -> “Greater Works” <- than these he shall do; because I go to My Father.
(John 14:13) And whatever you may ask in My name, that I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
(John 14:14) If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
(John 14:15) If you love Me, keep My commandments.
(John 14:16) And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may be with you forever,
(John 14:17) the Spirit of Truth; Whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him nor know Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you.
(John 14:18) I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you. [Romans 8:9]
What did Christ Jesus mean… when He said, “Greater Works”… in the above Bible Verses? Did He mean… that we as the NT believers... will ‘Also’ do Miracles, Healings, Raising the Dead and ‘Other Miracles’…? …“Yes” <–or –> “No”…? Please ‘Answer’ before going any further…? Did ‘You’ notice that… ‘You’ were not given any other choices such as… “I don’t Know?” Today, there are “Many Claiming” such Miracles. Here in Florida , there was a Preacher with a “Healing Revival Service”… in Lakeland Florida. It went on for weeks and “Many claimed Healings!” What the Public did not know… was that the “Preacher” was… ‘Separated & Estranged’ from His Wife and having an… “Adulterous Sexual Relations” with a female from the ‘Healing Team!’ Really, did the “Christ Jesus” of the Bible… really use an ‘Adulterer’… to Perform Healing Miracles…? Absolutely… “NOT”…!
*** (Matthew 24:24-25) For false Christ’s and false prophets will arise; -> and show great signs and wonders [miracles]; -> so much so that, if it were possible; they would deceive even the elect.
(Matt 24:25) Behold, I [Jesus] have told you beforehand.
*** (Matthew 16:4) A ‘wicked’ and ‘adulterous’ generation: seeks after a ‘Sign’. And there shall ‘No’ sign be given to it; except the sign of the prophet Jonah. And He [Jesus] left them and went away.
*** (John 20:29) Jesus said to him; Thomas, because you have ‘seen’ Me; you have believed. Blessed are they who have ‘Not’ seen; and have ‘believed’.
Did “Christ JESUS”… Say… “Some”… “Few”… or… “MANY”… ? ? ?
He Christ Jesus… said… “MANY”…!
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! Shall enter the kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will [Word] of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) “MANY” = will say to Me [Jesus] in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not prophesy in Your name; and through Your name throw out demons; and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working lawlessness!

Do these… ‘Greater Works’… encompass the “Command of Christ Jesus” in… “Luke 24:44-to-49…? Or the “Command” of ‘God & Christ Jesus’ in… “Acts 17:30-31” & “Luke 15:1-to-5”…? What about the words of Christ Jesus… “Luke 6:46”…? Or those of James… “James 1:22”…? What about those of Paul… “1Corinthains 5:1-to-6” & “1Thmothy 5:20”…? Or those of Jude… “Jude 1:3-4”…? Or Yes, even those of John… “2John 1:8-to-11”…? And even those of Peter… “2Peter 2:1-2”…? Or those of Titus… “Titus 1:9-to-16”…? How about ‘ALL’ of these… and “Much More!” The limited instructions of Christ Jesus were primarily given only to Israel; God’s chosen people. The NT Church… on the day of Pentecost… was filled with both “Jews & Gentiles”. The promise to Abraham from GOD... was fulfilled! Christ Jesus ministry was ‘limited’ to Israel. Yet those of His disciples have reached out to… ‘Every Nation’ on the face of the earth…! Proclaiming Salvation; by the Finished Work of Christ Jesus…! Do ‘You’ understand His promise in… “John 7:38-39”… and its far reaching implications… based on the Holy Word of God…?
*** (Leviticus 4:7) And the priest shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar of sweet incense before Jehovah, which is in the tabernacle of the congregation. And he shall pour all the blood of the young bull at the bottom of the altar of burnt offering, which is at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
*** (Hebrews 10:18) Now where Remission of these is, = There Is = “NO MORE” = “OFFERING FOR SIN”. [Hebrews 9:22 &

*** (Genesis 22:18) And in your [Abraham’s] Seed; [Isaiah 55:3] shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed My voice.
What are some of those… ‘Greater Works’…? May I simply suggest… knowing the Truth of the Scriptures… and sharing the “Salvation” message with ‘Others’…? May I also suggest… is it part of your own personal… ‘Spiritual Growth’…? Or is it that ‘You’ want to… show off those ‘Sign Gifts’… as the early “Apostles & Disciples” did…? ‘You’ do know… that “Judas also healed”…? Many want to see… ‘signs & miracles’… because “Frankly”:… they do ‘Not’ really believe the Holy Word of God…! Many take several Bible verses out of context… and leave the others completely ‘Alone’… because they do ‘Not’ want to know the “Complete Counsel” of the Holy God! They then become… ‘Pickers & Choosers’… and are eventlyally; “Completely Unbalanced: Spiritually!”
*** (Acts 20:27) For I did ‘Not’ keep back; from declaring to you; “ALL” the counsel of God.
-> Do ‘YOU’… Present an… “Unbalanced Gospel”…?

*** (1Corinthains 16:22) If anyone does ‘Not’ love the Lord Jesus Christ; let him be accursed [Damned]. The Lord comes [Again]!
*** (Ezekiel 2:7) And you shall speak My Words to them; whether they will hear or whether they will forbear; for they are rebellious.
*** (1Corinthians 2:14) But the = natural man = does NOT receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are = “FOOLISHNESS” = to him; neither can he = know = them, because they are spiritually discerned.
*** (2Peter 3:15-16) And think of the long-suffering of our Lord as salvation as our beloved brother Paul also has written to you according to the wisdom given to him
(2Pet 3:16) as also in all his letters, = speaking in them of these things; = in which are some things hard to be understood, = which the unlearned and unstable = pervert, = as also they do the rest of the = SCRIPTURES, = to their own destruction.
It is my understanding that these “Greater Works”… involve “True Spirituality & Obedience”. How many are truly “LED”… by the Holy Spirit of God… “Romans 8:14” & “Galatians 5:16”…! If Christ Jesus wanted to make a ‘Show’… He could have capitulated to Satan in… “Luke 4:9-to-12” or in “Matthew 4:5-6-7” The Disciples could have even… “Given Tickets for Donations”… as so many ‘False Ministries’ do today…! Those people who follow after… ‘signs & wonders’… in reality do ‘Not’ want to… submit themselves to God’s Holy Word…! Many want those “Blessings”; only promised to Israel… and then “Conveniently Forget” about those “Curses for Disobedience”…!
*** (Matthew 13:12) For whoever has, to him shall be given; and he shall have more abundance. But whoever does not have; from him shall be taken away; even that which he has.
“Losing ‘what’ you have – 101”…Blog.
May I ask… ‘You’… “Please”…? What ‘Greater Work’ do… ‘You’… want to do for Christ Jesus…? Isn’t leading someone to Him’ and then helping grow then ‘Spiritually’… “Enough?” Surely, that is what He: Christ Jesus called us to do… isn’t it…? Or am I missing something…? Perhaps ‘You’ can share with “Me”… what it is: that ‘You’ expect to do as those… “Greater Works”…? Many have missed the “Suffering for Christ Jesus”…? Here in America… Christianity is a Cultural Profession… without the Biblical practice of “Servant hood”…!
*** (Romans 12:1-to-4) I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living sacrifice; holy, pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service.
(Rom 12:2) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind; in order to prove by you what is that good and pleasing and perfect will of God.
(Rom 12:3) For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you; not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think. But set your mind to be right-minded,; even as God has dealt to every man the measure of faith.
(Rom 12:4) For even as we have many members in one body; and ‘all’ members do ‘Not’ have the same [position] function,
*** (Ephesians 5:9) For the fruit of the Spirit consists of every form of goodness, righteousness, and “TRUTH”.

*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth's sake; for You have magnified = Your Word = above all Your name.
*** (Micah 6:8) He has shown you; O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you; but to do justice; and to love mercy; and to walk humbly ‘with’ your God?
