Miracles or Greater Works?

Yeshua (Jesus) always referred to what He did as works. He said, “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 the Father” (John 14:12).[1] But the people around Him who witnessed these works always referred to them as miracles (Luke 19:37). They separated themselves from the ability to do these things because they saw Yeshua as someone who was not merely human. Yet Christ was completely human because He laid down whatever attributes He had prior to coming here (Philippians 2:7). He was born of a woman, existed in human flesh, and walked with God on the earth as a human. Therefore, what Yeshua did while in that form becomes an example for us.

It is common terminology within Christianity to talk about the miracles that Yeshua did: healing the sick, feeding the multitudes, or calming the storm. But when He speaks about what He did, He does not refer to them as miracles. In fact, the English term miracle comes out of the Greek word dunamis, meaning “power.” We are to be clothed with power (Luke 24:49). Those who believe in Him will do the works that He did and greater works than these will they do.

When Yeshua went out to the wilderness to pray, He connected with the Father. He got into the presence of the Father. He knew the Father and immersed Himself into the Father. Yeshua knew how to be in the Spirit and relate to the Father. When He came out of that time of prayer, the power of God rested upon Him to heal. He knew how to immerse Himself into the Spirit and draw the power. God is spirit; He is love, and He is all powerful. He is omnipotent. He is everywhere all at once. Start relating to that Presence as you wait upon Him, meditate on the Word, and immerse yourself into that energy, until that energy and power is resting upon you. Then you will be able to move by that power to do the works of God. This is exactly what we see Yeshua doing, and it is exactly what He said would happen for us. This is how we are to move.

End-time events call for those who are walking with God to do the will of God in the earth by working the works of God. It was those works that caught people’s attention and drew them to Christ. We need to wake up to the reality that the works of God by us in our existing human form are within our ability. We must know how to immerse ourselves in the Holy Spirit. We will do the works of God because the power of God is resting upon us as it rested upon Yeshua when He was in human flesh.

The book of Acts shows how the power of God rested on humans. This ability exists, and it is the way we as believers should live our daily lives. Christ was human just as we are human, yet He was able to do the works that everyone else called miracles. He knew exactly how to perform them, and He knew that they were the result of the power of God that rested upon Him. We are going to have the same experience. So we give ourselves to this relationship with Yeshua and with the Father in these days. Amen.
