Det kanske låter som en konstig fråga, men vill vi ha det? Allt det där som Jesus hade när han gick här på jorden? Låt den frågan sjunka in och rannsaka dig på djupet. Vill du verkligen ha det som Jesus har och göra det han gjorde när han gick här på jorden och ännu mer?
Do You Want It?
Dear one, I have a question for you: Do you really want to do the things that I did when I walked on this earth?
The reason I am asking you this question is because it really is possible for you to do that. I have already promised it to you[a], and it is very easy to qualify for. In fact, I want it for you--I want you to be on My agenda and I want you to do the works that I did when I walked on this earth. Dear one, I want it for you more than you want it for yourself. So I ask you again--do you really want to do the works that I did when I walked on this earth?
Too many of My own do not want it, for they are not walking in it, even thought it has already been given to them.
Dear one, do not be like them, for it is disobedience born from a lack of faith that grieves My heart. You can have it if you want it--all you have to do is to believe in Me with all of your heart, soul and strength.
Then you need to begin behaving as though you truly believe. Beginstretching out your hand to pray for the sick, and see what happens. Begin to command demons and oppression to leave people, using the authority that I have already placed in your hand. Begin speaking the truth of the Kingdom and the message of the good news of the gospel to those who are without hope, and watch them come alive and receive with gladness.
Dear one, do not try to carry some other message than the one you have been given, for I am love incarnate, and I am sending you out to proclaim that through Me, others may enter into My grace and blessing and love. Through Me, they may have solutions to the very real problems that trouble them...for I desire to be their provision and their protection and their healing and their peace.
Dear one, I have already placed the power within your hands to do the same signs and wonders that I did--but do them only as a witness to Who I am, so that others might believe in Me.
I have given you the authority to command demons and to heal all sicknesses. But it requires the key of faith--of believing in Me--to unlock that authority in order that you might use it. So start small, with things that you are able to stretch your faith to believe--pray for your friend with a headache, pray provision for the stranger behind you in line at the grocery store who lost their job and does not know how they will continue to feed their family. Release My authority and My provision in their life. When an unsaved acquaintance is plagued with fear and anxiety, command it to leave them in My name and release My peace upon them.
Even the most simple prayer is a testimony to My glory, for when I answer the prayer I will do so in a way that they know it is Me. So start small, dear one, and watch and see what I will do. I want your faith to grow until you are no longer limited by doubt and unbelief, so that you might do the same works that I have done, as a testimony to My name.
Yes, dear one, start small and let your faith grow--but do start! Do not sit back with a "watch and see" type of attitude that is the trademark of disbelief. Begin believing in Me, that you might do the works that I did. Then start behaving as one who believes.
a. John 14:12-14 "12I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it."
