How could it get any better than “healing them all?” But Jesus said it would get better.
John 16:7 – Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
Give serious consideration to what I write today. Our world is getting worse each day. We are truly living in what could be called pre-apocalyptic times. With that in mind, there has never been a time to rejoice more over the Scripture statement that “where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” Oh how thankful I am to God for that statement. Likewise, with out rejoicing, we should be seeking even more earnestly the steps we should take and the path we should follow to have that wonderful age-abiding grace abound to us.
Now consider the grace filled words of Jesus in stating that we would not only do the works He did, but greater works than these. Oh, my friend, I know it is possible for the Scriptures have declared it so, and more than that, I have witnessed and continue to witness their occurrences. But we need more. That grace needs to be manifest through EVERY believer, not just some; and it needs to be regular and consistent, not irregularly and inconsistently manifest. With that in mind, consider our Text for Today.
How is it more expedient for Jesus to have gone away than to remain? He told us Himself, so WE, that’s all of us, not one person, could do the works Jesus did, and so WE, that’s all of us, could do even greater works than Jesus did. Oh, what a promise! He said these things would happen ONLY if He went away. Well, dear one, He went away! And don’t you think it’s time for us to get busy by believing AND acting on God’s Word? The One Who “healed them all” said His leaving was expedient for us. How much more should we see healing flowing today? And deliverances, and miracles, and miracles of supply. I challenge you NOW! Believe NOW! Act NOW! Stand on God’s Word NOW!
