Will the church do greater works than Christ? It sounds presumptuous to make such a statement. We all know our limits, Jesus Christ had no limit! However, he was the one that declared in John 14:12, “…the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
Jesus created fish and bread by multiplying that which was already created. However, in the beginning the Creator created from nothing, simply by speaking the Word, “LET THERE BE,” and there it was!
If the Spoken Word would come to the church, could it create from nothing? Matt 21:21 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea ; it shall be done.” Not if God says, but you say!” This could not be done just with your mind, or feelings, we are to limited by the flesh, you would have to be inspired to say it.
Could we be living beneath our privilege as Believers by failing to recognize what God has promised and what he has done? Help us to understand what God has done, and revealed to those that can receive it. He is still Jehovah-jireh – the creator of heavens and the earth!
