1168 Now, being in that, we become part of the Word, and then take the Token, the Spirit, over the promise. "I'm the Lord that healeth thee." Now, get ready for the healing service tonight. See? Take the Token. Hang it over the Word on your unmovable faith in that Word; you'll get out. See, that's the thing that puts him out, 'cause in Him there's no such. Wished I could testify a little bit now of some things I've seen happen just in the last few weeks. See, see? Oh, what I could testify. You know, Luke said, "If all Jesus done would be put in books, there wasn't enough books in the world to write it." Just what I've seen in my own ministry, seen Him done, you couldn't pile the volumes on this platform here, if I wrote it in details, what I seen Him do, just in my own ministry, seen Him do it. See? He had more success in my ministry, than He did in His own. Now, remember, He had more success now, not me; He had. Glory. Hallelujah. He had more success in Jeffersonville, than He did in Nazareth. He did. In that wicked city and this wicked city... Amen. Glory. 'Cause He could perform no miracles there, but He did here. He finally broke through here. He got it done here.
3Now, I talked to brother Collins about this yesterday and he said, the reason brother Branham said that is because when brother Branham came home from being on the road, at least 50% to 2/3's of the people filling up the seats were from out of town, and traveled in for the meetings. That number fluctuated whether brother Branham announced the meetings ahead of time or not because the people were very, very hungry. The local people only made up a little over a hundred people, and 200 to 300 people would come in from out of town.
4So He had more success right here, than He did in Capernaum, or Nazareth in that... He done more miracles right here in this Tabernacle, than He did in the entire ministry on earth. That's right. He did it. Now, what about the rest of the world? Oh, my. Now, that's what He done. Now, remember: He done. Now, I didn't say that I done (See?), 'cause I didn't do it. I just stood... And I just loved Him and just submitted myself to Him, and said what He said; and the Holy Spirit went to the other people, they believed what He said, and then He did the work. That's all. If He can get all of us believing it... What would He do right now, if He can get us all believing it right now, right? There wouldn't be a feeble person around the country. That's right. If He could get everybody to believe it, it'd all be over. See? Hold your Token over your unmovable faith in His promised Word, and Satan will go. Now, I am going to close now.
6You know, we might not have a need of healing then, but we'll be planting and building, and saying to this tree be thou moved over from here to over there, and to this mountain, move over a few hundred feet over there, I want room for a lake.
10Now, the first thing I want you to notice is that Jesus is not bragging about himself here. He is bragging about the Father. He tells us because the Father loves His son, he shows the son all things that he is doing. And then he adds, and he will shew him (not I will show you, but the Father who loves the son will show the son) greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
11Now that ought to give you a clue as to who is doing the works, because right before that he says in verse 19: "Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
13And I hope as we approach the 3rd pull we realize that it is not about the bride, it is not about you and me, it is all about being sensitive to what God is doing and stepping into the vision, and being the hands he wants to use, or the feet he wishes to walk in.
15From his sermon, Christ is identified the same 64-0415 P:76 And notice the significance of the title because it speaks a million words by itself. Christ is identified the same. But anyway, brother Branham says, "You know He said He didn't do nothing till the Father showed Him first. You know that's Saint John 5:19. Is that right, brethren? He said, "I..." Nott what He see... He had to see it first. Jesus never done one thing until He saw a vision first. How many know that's true? Saint John 5:19: "I do nothing till I see the Father doing it first." You see?
16In another sermon called, I am the resurrection and life 52-0810A P:49 Now, now, then you got to have confidence. This is the house of judgment, the house of God, where God comes down and passes His judgment. Your pastor is supposed to be a righteous man. The congregation is supposed to be with him, one hundred percent. You're supposed to be just a hundred percent together. And in there, if you're not, then Satan's got a way to get in. You got a loophole somewhere, going to have everything cleared out. Then when they sent again for Jesus. Instead of doing that, He just went on; never come, or said a word about it. He'd had a vision from the Father. I will pick that up there, tonight, if I can. He'd had a vision from the Father, that Lazarus was going to die, and He had to follow His vision. Of course, He did. He went on. After while, they said...He said, "My friend Lazarus sleepeth." Well, the disciples, they said, "Well, if he's asleep, he's doing very well then; he's recovering. He's getting better." Then He let them know in their own language. He said, "He's dead. And for your sake I am glad I wasn't there. But I go wake him." He knowed where He was going. God had already told him. He followed what the Father said do, not what man told Him; what God said. He knowed just what to do.
17Now, remember, Jesus is our pattern. He has shown us how to live and act like sons and daughters of God. He set the example as the first born son. You know, until brother Branham came along, I didn't know much about visions. I had a lot of dreams, and I had read the story of Joseph and the dreams, and I have always had dreams, both spiritual and nonsense type dreams as well. but it wasn't until I heard brother Branham teach us that God directed His son with Visions, and you might ask, "how did brother Branham know that?" I'll tell you how he knew that. Because God directed him the same way, because the Bible says that "God changes not". "He is the same yesterday, today and forever."
18Again in his sermon Led by the spirit 59-0407 P:44 Brother Branham said, "One time Jesus was on His road by a vision to heal, to raise up a little girl by the name of, I don't know what her name was, her father's name was Jairus; he was a priest. And he'd come to get Jesus to go lay His hands on the little girl. And while he was yet coming, someone come and said, "Don't trouble the Master any farther; she's dead." And the little fellow's heart just about to break. Jesus turned and said, "If thou can only believe."
19Let's look at one more example, in his sermon, William Branham speaks 55-0826 P:17 Brother Branham said, "But what would Jesus do if He was here? He might know why; He might say something to you like He did in the Bible: told the woman where her trouble was, told Nathanael where he was when Philip found him. And He said, "I can't do nothing Myself; what I see the Father doing in a vision... The Father gives Me a vision, then I do what He tells me." Did you see tonight in the resurrection of Lazarus? Jesus had a vision. The Father told Him what was going to happen. Amen. Now, He can do the same tonight. And if He, how many's been here before raise up your hand. Father, I know there's no virtue in my hands. There's no virtue in my hand. There was no virtue in handkerchiefs that Paul prayed for. There was no virtue...?... But it was obeying the Word of God.
21Notice, John 14:12 is the second time the Bible speaks of greater works, and Jesus says, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, (and we have already established many times that the he according to brother Branham is anyone who is a believer, and that means anyone who is filled with the Holy Spirit) the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."
22Now, there are 39 times that brother Branham speaks concerning "the greater works", and most of them he pointed to his own ministry but several he made it very easy to understand, and he said, he is doing more now all around the world that he did in the ministry of His son. And Like brother Vayle told me in our conversation concerning John 14:12, he said, "well, I guess a five pound pail and a ten pound pail are both greater than a one pound pail".
23So we see that greater simply means more of the same. It is strange what some people believe when they read the word. It's like common sense has left them. Since when is preaching the greater works just because you preach to more people, that don't make it greater works.
24Perseverance 62-0520 P:57 Well, "I know, but you see, we're schooled, and our pastors has done so-and-so. They got such educations, and they've study the Bible, and they've studied all history. And they claim that the days of miracles is past."But God said it isn't. Jesus said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works..."Someone said, "Oh, sure. We do greater works because we've got a greater organization than He had. We got greater... We're all the way around the world." Wait a minute. Before you do that, do the works He did first, and then you can do the greater. He said you do His works first and then go greater. If you'll take the translation of that from the original, it doesn't say greater; it said more. The same works and more all the way around the world, then you got it right. Yeah.
25Greater than Solomon is here 63-0605 P:82 If I told you that the spirit of John Dillinger was in me tonight, you'd expect me to have guns out here and be a robber, like he was. If I told you the spirit of some great artist was in me, you'd expect me to be able to paint these mountains here just like they look, 'cause the spirit of that artist is in me. And if I tell you that the Spirit of Christ is in me, He said Himself "you'll do the works of Christ". St. John 14:12 said, "He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; greater works than this do."I quoted that once and a man said, "Sure, we do greater works. We preach the Gospel to all the world. He didn't do it in His day."I said, "Just show me the works that He did first, and then we'll talk about the greater," See? Ninety percent of the world hardly knows nothing about Jesus Christ. Millions dying every year that never heard His Name. More? It's less evangelized today than it ever was. Hearing them talk about greater works, preaching the Gospel, certainly not.
26Getting in the spirit 61-0428 P:96 Jesus could not preach the baptism of the Holy Ghost, 'cause It had not yet come. That's a greater works. It certainly is. The Church is to preach the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said It was coming, but the Church has it, and saying, "We got it. And it's for you." See? So that was a greater, that is true.
27Man that can turn on light 63-1229M P:104 "These works that I do, shall you also, and greater than this shall you do. I took a fish to make a fish. You don't even have to have a fish." He's still God. It's still the same Son, the same Son of God that took a fish off of a fish. It's the same Son of God today. "These works that I do shall you also; even greater than this will you do." It'll be magnified. "Greater than this shall you do." And people refuse to see it. Greater works...
28Jesus Christ the same 58-0214 P:47 You have to know it by the Spirit. Flesh cannot do those things. What is it? The vine, the branches, the same life that was in the vine comes through His branches. He feeds the branch through His vine. That's how He declares Himself to be the same yesterday, and forever, for He said, "I'm the Vine." The Holy Spirit now, Christ in Spirit form in you, energizing you with His Spirit to believe God, and He's everything that He does, He manifests Himself just like He did in the Bible times. "The works that I do, shall you also. A little while, and the world won't see Me no more (How many knows He said that? That's the unbeliever.), yet ye shall Me (the believer), for I ('I,' personal pronoun), I'll be with you, even in you, to the end of the world." Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. "The works that I do, shall you do also." Now, the word there in King James says, "Greater works than this will you do." But if you'll run that back to the Greek Lexicon, you'll find out that it doesn't mean, "greater," it means "more." You couldn't do greater. He stopped nature; He healed the sick; He raised the dead; He done things. Well, there could be no more done. But you could do more of it, because He would be in His church as the branch, as the vine in His branches, or whole world around...?... the same thing.
29Sirs we would see Jesus 57-1211 P:16 Now, the fruits of Christ, when He was here on earth, the things that He did when He was here on earth, He promised that they would be done by His church after He left. "The works that I do, shall you do also; greater works than this shall you do; for I go to My Father."Greater, if anyone who knows Greek, knows that that word "greater" doesn't mean that it would be in quality; it means in quantity. Another words it would be, "More than this shall you do," would be the way we would read it. "More than this shall you do, for I go to My Father." Great, because no one could do any greater work than He did; because He raised the dead; He stopped nature. He done everything that could be done. And He stopped the roaring sea, made the winds be still, raised up the dead after they were done corrupted in the grave, and no one could do greater in quality. But being that His Spirit would come into the Church and would reach out, it would be a universal church, all around the world; and they could do more of the same things that He was doing.
30Perseverance 62-0218 P:27 Someone said to me not long, to be a little critical, said, "'Greater works,' He said, 'shall you do.' We do the greater works."I said, "Do the lesser before you do the greater. Just show me the lesser works." You can make It, twist It around and try to make It say something, but still It remains the same. And you watch anybody that's got faith enough to believe that, It'll manifest Itself the same way that God did it. Now we got so much today under the emotions and so forth, that and things. I have nothing to say against it, that's up between the individual and God. But to me, every word, every action has to come from this Bible. It has to be God's Word, then I know It's true, if God, the Bible backs it up and says it's true, with a promise, then it's the Truth. It's somebody that's found faith, that stands there on that Word and makes It live again. "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever." When we see that in the promise of God, then we can be perseverant. We can really believe, stay there because it's God's promise. Stay right with it no matter how long it takes it; it'll bring it out.
31Then Jesus came 57-1213 P:45 And at His leaving He said this: "The works that I do shall you do also. Greater works than this shall you do." And the word "greater," anyone knows means "more." You couldn't do any greater in quality, just in quantity, 'cause He was there in one Person. God was represented in one Person. Now He's represented in the universal Church everywhere. "More than this shall you do, for I go unto My Father. Yet a little while and the world will see Me no more." The world "kosmos" there means that it's the world's order. "The world will see Me no more, yet you shall see Me, for I (A personal pronoun) I'll be with you, even in you to the end of the world."
32Uncertain sound 60-1218 P:148 John 14:12, He said, "And the works that I do shall you do also, and greater works than this shall you do (more of it)." The word there, absolutely, look in the Greek; it says, "More shall ye do." 'Cause why? God was just in one Man; now God is in His whole Church. You see? God was in one Man then; all men who'll believe Him now. "More than this shall you do, for I go to My Father; I'll return back to the Light that I was, that led the children of Israel through the wilderness. I'll turn back to that; and then in a little while, and I'll come again." See, John 14:12, "The works that I do, shall you do also," and now He said, "and more than this."
33Five identifications 60-0911E P:56 John 14:12, He gives the teaching what the church should do. In John the 14th chapter, and the 12th verse, we'll see what that says. John 14:12, so we read it, make it official. All right, John 14 and the 12th verse. 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 do he, do, shall; because I go to my Father. That's the message of the church: "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever," living in the church, King of the church, raised from the dead, same yesterday, today, and forever, performing the same works, doing the same things that Jesus did. That's the message of the church. If the church isn't teaching That, it's teaching some false theology. That's what Jesus commanded them to preach.
35Remember what I read earlier from John 5? "For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he (God, the Father) will shew him (the son) greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
36Notice it is all about what the Father is showing the son, and then the son steps into the vision so we can see what the Father is showing us, because he adds, and he will shew him (not I will show you, but the Father who loves the son will show the son) greater works than these, that ye may marvel. So it is all about the son showing us what the Father shows him first. And that is what John 14:12 is all about. Philip wanted to see the Father, so with that in mind, let's read from John 14 beginning at verse 7 and we will see that the entire conversation is about our being able to see the Father in action.
37So that ought to give you a clue as to who is doing the works, because right before that he says in verse 19: "Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
38So the key here is that Jesus is not telling them, Hey guys look at me, look what I can do. On the contrary, he is telling us hey guys, look at what the Father, God is doing. YOu want to see the Father, just watch what he does.
40Show us the Father and it will satisfy 60-0731 P:13 Saint John, the 14th chapter, and let's begin at the 7th verse, and read the 12th verse inclusive, Jesus speaking: "If ye had known me, you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus said unto him, Have I been so long... with you, and yet has thou not known me, Philip? he that has seen me has seen the Father; and how sayest thou... Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father... the Father in me; or else believe me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do he shall do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And my subject for the afternoon is "Show Us The Father And It Will Satisfy." "Suffices" means "to satisfy." If You'll show us the Father, it'll satisfy us.
41So brother Branham shows us that John 14:12 is all about showing us the Father. Because even Jesus Himself said, "The son can of himelf do nothing, but what he sees the Father do that the son does likewise."
42Jehovah Jireh 57-0612 P:35 There is God's covenant. The Life that was in Jesus was tore out of Him and was sent back to the church. And the Life that was in Christ, being in you... Then Jesus His, His Word which He raised from the dead, is living among us tonight, doing the same works that He did when He was here on earth. Amen. I'm so glad to know that. Jesus said, "If ye abide in Me, My Word's in you, you can ask what you will, and I'll give it to you." That's right. "He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth, and believeth in me shall never die," He said. That was His eternal promise to His church. "The works that I do, shall you also. Greater works than this will you do, for I go unto My Father." What a promise. Wonderful.
43Angel of the Lord 51-0718 P:38 I said, "And if I tell the truth," I said, "I tell about an Angel. If I tell the truth, God will testify that I've told the truth. I said, "As Jesus told the Jews, 'I have greater works than those of John, for the works the Father has sent Me to do, the same testifies that I am sent from God.'" And I said, "If He doesn't testify, then I'm wrong. If He does testify, then I am right. Not because that it's me, but because it's He that sent me is right." And I said, "Anyone knows that God will have nothing to do with error, and if I tell the truth, then God will speak of me."
45Lamb and the dove 57-0325 P:88 Now, we know that in the last days there's going to be a revival of supernatural that's not going to be of God. We know that. But the way we're to tell it is by the Bible; that's right, by the Bible. Now, 'cause it said, "Many will come to Me in that day and say, Lord, have not I done this and that? And He'll say, 'Depart from Me.'" See? That's right. Now, it must absolutely be THUS SAITH THE BIBLE. Now, to fulfill the Scriptures... Jesus does these things to fulfill His Scriptures. That's what He did when He come. He healed the people that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets.
46So that ought to let you know that what we do must be done exactly like what Jesus did. We see the scene in this Bible... And then we see the need just like what the scene showed in the Bible, then we know it is from God, and we are to step into it. I know why brother Vayle shied away from John 14:12 because he had seen people go hog-wild in Pentecost pretending they were doing what the Bible did, when they were not. Show me one place in the Bible where any man of God prayed for anything to boost his wealth? But Pentecost preachers say, "you want a fleet of Cadillacs believe for it and you will get it". That's pure nonsense, and antichrist.
48And I've seen these false imposters. Outside this Message and inside this Message. Remember Shelly? He would strut all over the pulpit area and then whirl around and say, "I caught that what you were thinking", pretending to have the sign of Messiah. I had a guy right in a church up North who pulled that stuff, and his so called discernment was totally off the wall. Phooey, stay with the Word. If God shows you a scene before you right out of this Bible, then you are staying with the Bible. Then all you have to do is wait for the scene to unfold, and if it stays right with the Bible and then the need begins to show itself. just set back a little and let it play itself out, and when you see it clearly that it is from the Bible, then step into that vision, and that vision will become reality, and that Word will become manifested Word.
49But don't stretch what's happening, and don't try to alter what is happening to make it happen. Then you won't know whether God is in it or not. Remember, the two spirits will be so close it will deceive you if you are not the very elect.
50Brother Branham said in his sermon, Spoken word original seed 62-0318E P:175 Notice, what harmony. Jesus never did anything until seen of the Father or the Father showed Him first: (Harmony between God and Christ. See? John 5:19) So will the Bride, (ok, so that is your key right there. He said so will the bride do just like Jesus did, wait on God to show you and then do) and He shows Her His Word of Life (He shows Her), (Notice the double emphasis) (He shows Her), and she receives It. She never doubts it. Nothing can harm Her, not even death; for if the Seed be planted, the water will raise it up again. Amen. (Now, I got a great big "Hallelujah.") Here is the secret: the Word is in the Bride (you see, that has to be first, she must have that Word in her) and (now, remember and is a conjunction, so he's going to add something else to the word being in the bride.. and he says) and the mind of Christ to know what He wants done with the Word, and She does it in His Name.
51See, she knows the Word, she feeds on it daily, and she knows it, so when she sees the same scene as what is in the Bible beginning to open up before her, she recognizes that it is right out of the Book of Visions, the Bible, and she receives it as that, and because She has the mind of Christ, then when she sees it she recognizes it and steps into it, and it becomes manifested Word for this hour. She has the mind of Christ to know what He wants done with the Word, and She does it in His Name. She doesn't just set back and talk about it, she sees it, recognizes and then acts upon it.
57Choosing of a bride 65-0429E P:63 The other is pregnated by the Word of God and will bring forth the Body, the finished Body of Jesus Christ, which is the Bride. The Body of Christ isn't finished yet. How many knows that? A man and woman is one. And Christ is one Body, the Word. The Bride will have to be the rest of that body, and the two together makes the one body again, like Adam was at the beginning. Man and his wife are one. Now, She, the true Bride, so sold out to Him that She uses no mind of Her own. His mind, of course, is His will, and His will is His Word.
59And he also said in his sermon, One in a million 65-0424 P:24 Let me give you a shocking something. See, "Not all that says unto Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter in; but the one that doeth the will of My Father." His will is His Word.
60Therefore to make it simple for you to know whether something is the will of God or not, brother Branham said if you want to know the will of God there are three things that must happen. First it must be revealed to you in His Word, then Second, it must be quickened in your spirit, which means you're actually seeing it beginning to open up before you, and it is recognize in your spirit as that, and then third, it must come to pass. Then you know that is the will of God for you.
61Brother Branham saw in the vision the hat on the chair and the woman healed. But first the scene had to be there. he sat almost 12 hours waiting for the scene to take place. But he had to wait on God to make the scene come out exactly in reality what he saw in the vision. He couldn't jump the gun and tell the man, you set down here and take off your hat and place it on that chair. He had to see it unfold, and then he could have confidence that his prayer would be "thus Saith the Lord".
62And when brother Branham said that the bride would have "thus Saith the Lord" he also said or she will keep still. In other words, she must see it int he Word, and when she does, and she sees the need in the same scene and she can identify it back to the scriptures, then she has seen it, and recognized it, and then she can act upon the Word of God and she can expect the same results as in the Bible, and that is when she has "Thus saith the Lord"
63Then Brother Branham continues, (Amen. I'll believe that.) No one can persuade them different. Why? Because you've already seen it in the Bible, and you've recognized the scene and the need, and as he says, "They have THUS SAITH THE LORD, or they keep still. Then they will do the works of God. For it is Himself in them, continuing His Word to fulfill as He did complete in His day.
64Only believe 61-0427 P:56 Jesus said, "Only believe." Believe what? Believe what, now? She's dead. Believe for the impossibles. Yeah. Believe for the impossible. "Why, after she's done dead and embalmed, believe now?" "Sure, I told you just believe if you want to see the glory of God.""Believe what?""Believe anything, whatsoever..." "Verily, I say unto you, if you shall say to this mountain, 'Be moved,' and don't doubt in your heart, just only believe, you can have what you say." That's right. "He that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. Whosoever believeth in Me shall never die. If ye abide in Me and My Word in you, ask what you will, and it'll be given to you." Is that right? All these promises..."Works that I do shall you do, also. Greater works than this shall you do, 'cause I go to My Father." All these promises here... "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever. He was wounded for our transgression (was wounded for our transgression), bruised for our iniquity, chastisement of our peace upon Him; with His stripes we were healed."
65That day on Calvary 60-0925 P:56 What is Eternal Life? The Life that He lived, the Life that was in Him: impart that to others. Can a man do that? A Son of God can. Jesus said, "Whosoever sins you remit to them they are remitted. Whosoever sins you retain, to them they are retained." Now, here's where the Catholic church and many of the others made their big mistake. They go out and say, "I forgive your sins." That wasn't it. How did they get sins forgiven in the Bible? Peter answered that question on the day of Pentecost. They said, "What can we do to be saved? How can we get this that you all got?" He laid down the prescription. He told them what to do. He said, "Repent, every one of you towards God, and be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ." What for? "The remission of your sins." There's the greater works. And the word remit means to be done away with altogether.
66But that is not how God works, He works through men, men who are alive. Who are filled with his Spirit, so they can reflect His Life, His God-Life to the church and impart that same life to others. But you will not find that life in men who have surrendered to the cares of this life. No, those men are either dying or they are dead. And death can not impart life. It takes Life to impart life.
67In paragraph 3 of brother Branham's sermon, What the Holy Ghost was given he said, And remember, "He that saves a soul from his error, has covered a multitude of sin." See? And the Bride of Christ is hungering and thirsting. She's in travail to give birth to the children of God.
68That day on Calvary 60-0925 P:53 Now, watch, Jesus said... Watch how He stated it. "The works that I do (He's doing them right now.) the works that I'm doing now, healing the sick, raising the dead, opening the eyes of the blind, these works shall you do also. You'll do these if you believe in Me. You do these works, and then a greater than this shall you do, for I go to My Father. (Notice he speaks of works and then the greater works making a distinction between the two) A little while and the world won't see Me no more. Yet you'll see Me. I'll be with you, even in you to the end of the world. I will not leave you comfortless. I'll pray the Father. He'll send you another Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, Whom the world cannot receive, yet you can receive Him." 54 Now, notice, the greater works was to have the power in the church, not only to heal the sick by prayer, cast out devils by prayer, but to impart Eternal Life to believers. The Holy Ghost was coming and given into the hands of the church to impart life. Oh, that's what Calvary meant. It took stooped, degraded men and women and lifted them into a place to be sons and daughters of God to heal the sick and to impart Eternal Life. By giving the Holy Ghost to obedient believers, men who were once unbelievers be made believers and impart spiritual Eternal Life.55 How much greater is it to say to this sick woman laying here, "I can pray a prayer of faith," and she'll be healed. That's a great thing. That's what He was doing then, but said, "Greater than this shall you do. I'm going to give you power, not only to raise him up for a while, but to give him Eternal Life, which will be eternal forever." Poor, blind, wretched people, how do you miss that?
