Jesus said, “I have GLORIFIED YOU on the earth. I have finished THE WORK which YOU have given ME to do. (John 17:4 NKJV)
Hi Faith-writers, I thank God for another opportunity to share HIS Word with HIS people. We are still discussing the topic of GLORY, and the many ways we can GLORIFY GOD. We are going to start by looking at what Jesus said, in regards to how HE Glorified GOD.
Glorifying God by Ministry and Works
There many ways we can Glorify God. Looking at this passage, Jesus mentions THE WORK, that God the Father gave HIM to do. This is so important because this shows us that we need to get our own Revelation from God as to what HE personally wants us to do. We cannot do what our Pastor, Deacon, Choir Director or Door keeper told us to do. We cannot go by what our Organization tells us to do. Oh yes, this may rub some people the wrong way, but we need to grow spiritually in the area of developing a sensitive ear to the Spirit of God who will lead us to do the Divine Will of God on the earth, HIS WAY.
Jesus said it plainly to the Jews who sought to stone HIM for healing the man by the pool. Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what HE sees the Father do; for whatever HE does, the Son also does in like manner. (John 5:19 NKJV)
But how does that apply to us, you may ask? Jesus said to HIS disciples, “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the WORKS themselves. (John 14:11 NKJV)
Most assuredly, I say to you, 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 My Father. (John 14:12 NKJV)
Now, most Pastors and Ministers who read this either shrink with fear or are clueless to tapping into the Supernatural area of Ministry, Jesus was referring too in this passage. Because they’ve never been taught how to tap into the Ministry and Works Jesus showed us in the Word. To be honest, most Ministers don’t read the Word with that sincere dedication and consecration that is required to hear from God. They rather read some commentary and add to that to build their sermons. Instead of Praying and Fasting and waiting on God to tell them what to Teach and Preach.
Jesus separated Himself in the wee-hours of the morning to Pray, or HE Prayed all night to get Divine Revelation from God to do the Works HE was showed to do. (See, Mark 1:35 NKJV/ Luke 5:16 NKJV)
Today’s Ministers love to hangout, joke and laugh all time. Watch questionable shows on TV that may be inappropriate to their spiritual well-being. Then when they see a Minister who is operating in Power they criticize him or her and try to slander their Ministry. You wonder why they are not powerfully bless as they’re supposed to be. (Don’t be mad at me—I must tell the Truth!)
The critics are operating like the Pharisees instead of operating like Jesus. They want to be like Miriam who spoke evil about Moses. That’s why they have spiritual leprosy. They have been kept out of the camp so-to-speak (out of the presence of God), because of back-biting and back-stabbing men and women of God who operate in the Supernatural.
Don’t be a hater, the Supernatural is for anybody who desires Spiritual Gifts and more…
The Work is…
Jesus said, I have Glorified YOU on the earth. I have finished the Work which You have given Me. (John 17:4 NKJV)
The Works are…
1. Preaching—about the kingdom of God
2. Teaching—about topics that are unpopular today. Like Hell, and who is going there if they don’t repent.
3. Praying—early in the morning, or all night, or getting always from people just to spend time with God.
4. Fasting—keep us sensitive to the Holy Spirit and Anointed to Minister with Power.
5. Ministering—in all areas! Not just talking about the topic of Salvation. We must Minister Healing, Deliverance, Miracles, Signs and Wonders. Give to the poor, Tithe, participate to build a project if we have the time and talent.
Jesus always spoke of the Works.
Jesus mentioned the word WORKS 16 times in the Gospel of John from chapters 5 thru 17. Jesus mentioned the word Work 7 times from chapter 4 thru 17, in the Gospel of John. That’s 23 times Jesus referred to Work(s). When Jesus places emphasis on a Word we must take it into consideration and begin researching why!? Why did Jesus place so much emphasis on Works? Jesus said, if we don’t believe in HIM, believe in the Works that HE did which verifies the very essence of God at WORK through HIM. (John 5:19/ 14:11-12 NKJV)
When we take the time to read the WORKS that Jesus had done we can come to believe in HIM. We can also come to believe that God sent HIM. Then if we go deeper we can come to a place of doing the very same WORKS—operating like HIM on the earth. 3 steps, phases and stages that needs to be done to tap into the Supernatural.
Glorifying God is not a mystery. We need to believe and begin to learn how to do it. Once we become Born-again, baptized in Water, and then Baptized in the Holy Spirit. We become full-fledged believers
When we continue to read the Word of God and dedicate ourselves to give time to God we will grow from Glory to Glory and be Transformed to HIS Image and be sensitive to HIS voice. Be it, by the Word, our Conscience, by the Audible Voice of the Holy Spirit, by a Dream or Vision, by an Angelic Visitation or Jesus appearing to us personally.
I personally experienced all these Divine Methods of Communication. This is why I teach the way Jesus taught me how to Teach. I never went to Bible School. I’m not a good speller (as you can tell with the typos). But the reason these teachings are hitting home and radically changing lives is because they all came from Jesus’ style of Ministry. Jesus told me many times Teach like I taught, updated but leave it plain, practical and simple! So we need to begin Glorifying God. Let’s do it HIS WAY!!! HIS WORKS, HIS STYLE, SO HE CAN GET THE GLORY, AMEN.
