    Greater Things

    Sovereign Lord, you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do the deeds and mighty works you doDeuteronomy 3:24

    Moses and his people had quite a walk through the desert. They endured much hardship, but it was all in God’s plan. Moses had a lot of spiritual encounters and great things of God. He saw God’s face. He saw the burning bush. He saw water gush from a rock. He received God’s law. He saw the parting of the sea.

    These were all a preamble of greater things yet to come. God let Moses peer into and see the Holy Land, but denied Him the opportunity to set foot on it. Moses view of the land across the Jordan was a sign of greater things yet to come.

    Regardless of how difficult the times, those who have been born again by the grace of God, redeemed and forgiven by the blood of Christ, adopted into God’s heavenly family, indwelt by and sealed with the Holy Spirit, given an eternal home in Heaven and empowered by God for significant service have no right to be anything but optimistic.

    Here’s the point. When things looked hopeless for Israel, God was about to do something amazing.
    When it looked like Israel was finished, their best days were still ahead. Greater things were yet to come and greater things were still to be done in Israel.

    When your eyes are on the problems and you can only see the victory of wickedness in this world, lift up your eyes. Jesus is alive and greater things are yet to come and greater things are still to be done.

    Moses saw and experienced many great things, but the real power of God was following Moses death. Moses planted the seeds for the Promised Land, but he never saw the greatest of miracles when God sent His son to die for the remission of sins and then reappear to assure His followers and then ascend into the heaves to sit at the right hand of God.

    Remember that God is still at work in this world and for those of us who are saved by His grace, greater things are yet to come.

    grizcty: Sir; again I expand for our new



    Deuteronomy 3:24


    21And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the LORD your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the LORD do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest. 22Ye shall not fear them: for the LORD your God he shall fight for you. 23And I besought the LORD at that time, saying, 24O Lord GOD, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might? 25I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon. 26But the LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter. 27Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan

    Greater Works

    John 14:11-14 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

    Jesus clearly told His disciples that they would do and accomplish even greater works than him. They were to assume His power to do the work of God as Jesus was going to the Father. He said that anything they would ask in His name, He would do it.

    Some would tell you that those words were only meant for his original disciples as he was speaking to them right before He went to the cross. How then do you explain the fact that throughout the New Testament there were accounts of signs and wonders done by many of the early church leaders.

    Jesus has intended that His works would continue through the church age right up until he returns the second time. Across the world there are people who are being healed, sight is being restored and even people are even being raised from the dead, all to the glory of God the Father.

    Verse 12 simply says that the one who believes in Him, Jesus, he will do the works that we have known Jesus to do and even greater works than that. That means the miraculous works of Christ that we read about and the works that we saw accomplished in the first century church would continue. Here in America we have become skeptics and have written off the signs and wonders as a thing that was only meant for a certain time by a certain few people.

    Jesus said we would do greater works than what had already been demonstrated in His ministry here on earth. We need to start believing that Jesus said what he meant and meant what he said. All over the world great signs and wonders are being performed and millions of people are being saved. Here in this country, the church has abandoned the miraculous and we see the continual deterioration of our society and people are turning their back on God.

    Let's pray that God would restore His people to a place of faith where we can see the miraculous work of the Lord return to bless this great nation.
