Greater Works
by Dottie McElreath

What are the greater works that we are to do? Have you ever seen even a portion of them done? Will our generation ever see any of this? Is this world destined to ever birth any man worthy to do what Jesus said we would do? Do you feel defeated before you start? Is Jesus to be left with no heirs? Is God dead? How do you prove it? Why haven't there been people from Peter on down to keep this alive? The questions are endless because I have the mind that wants the answers and I feel to be about two years in knowledge as to what I know as compared to what I want to know. Do you ever feel as if you'll never have everything answered that your mind questions? Well we are going to the Master's Table for a meal and I hope to feed you as I am also fed? (Luke 22:30 KJV) That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

We have become lackadaisical as to what we hear and will usually sit down and eat warmed over food that is as old as we are and justify it because we went to church and therefore we are good little Christians. We don't demand fresh food from our Pastor's and they have got along so far with passing on leftovers and we wonder why we are dead and rotting in our flesh. No wonder we are in this mess and no wonder that God has left us to eat our long dead food. Our carnal mind rules us and it is a demanding boss. I want my way and I will find a way to get it as a rule. Be honest and you'll acknowledge that you are the same way. Our Adamic nature is what we were born with and unless some light gets in to illuminate it we will pretty well stay that way. (1 Cor 15:47 KJV) The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

The Children of Israel went through lesson after lesson and we do too. If God loves you He will chastise you to make you Holy and put you through enough valley's to teach you if you have what it takes to be a Son of God and Heir to the throne. (Heb 12:7 KJV) If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you, as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? You see a son must prove His right to rule and reign with Christ and so far in my lifetime I've not seen it but there is a people that is rising up with the courage to run the gamut of all that life can throw at them and still win the race. Many of you reading this are capable of doing this but a champion does not run on leftovers. He has to eat fresh food and he sometimes must go get the food himself or continue to eat another man's leftovers that does have some life in them. Am I making you mad yet? If I am, good, that's a sign you aren't dead yet.

What are the greater works? (John 14:12 KJV) 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. All the works that Jesus did, we can do. How? By believing on Him or to be living on Him. To have a firm foundation on Him. We have heard the word faith batted around to where people are having faith for the miracle not on God that it's suppose to come from. If your kids had more faith or belief on the car or television than they did you, how would you feel? We worship the creation more that the Creator. (Rom 1:25 KJV) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. We have an instance of people claiming to have a front seat with God when they don't have a personal knowledge of what He is much less what it would be like to walk in the power He did. We have people who are ready for the adulation that this power would bring but when they realize that to be a son means that you must give yourself to the people as a way of life then it maybe isn't as appetizing to be a son. (Rom 12:1 KJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. This is why it hasn't been done. Can you give your life to God to use as He sees fit even if it is not the way you want it to be? Can you? O.K. Let's go a little further.

The fastest way to learn of God is to go to Him personally and we have a generation of people who are really scared to find out what God is saying. What if I make Him mad? What if He tells me to Go Do Something? No I'd rather die in my sins than find this God of life because He might require I give my life for my brother and I don't like my brother and I'd rather choose my own way of dying. YOU ALREADY STINK AND YOU DON"T KNOW IT"

LISTEN. There are people all over the world that talk to God and in the most influential country in the world we stick our heads in the ground. God would heal our lands and families if we would only ask. (2 Chr 7:14 KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Instead we don't think God will pay attention to us because we don't have a following or money or a lot of education, and I think you realize by now that you can use any excuse to yourself but you need to know something right now and that is that when you die, you die alone and your life is reviewed by you then you are without excuse. I can tell you honestly that God is a whole lot easier to face while you are alive.

This is a wake up call to some of you and to a lot of you it puts in print what you've been thinking and I know the disgust that you have because of the things done in the name of religion. I can only tell you that this is a cloak that many people hide under and that God is not in it. (2 Cor 6:16 KJV) And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. God is in His people and He is alive and well and because of this you will see these greater works in your lifetime and to the extent that you will let Him He will work through you. He is rising up within a people that have no claim to fame and do not desire to be known and only want to get as close to God as is possible to get and because this is their soul's desire He will cause the former miracles of Jesus to flow in and around as there are many Heirs taking their rightful place and you have as much a right to join in this endtime outpouring as Peter, Paul, and all the other disciples in their day. They came from all walks of life and the common denominator was their love for Jesus. (Rom 8:17 KJV) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

When you talk to God and be still and alone, just you and Him, He Himself will teach you and console you and love you with everything you'll ever need and when He fills you up and makes you strong He will send you out to be bread for your brothers and it will be what you desire above all things. (1 Cor 10:17 KJV) For we being many are one bread and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

There is coming a move that the world has never seen and it will literally change the world, as you know it. There are physical changes that will be taking place and He is warning us to prepare and the best way to prepare is to find God while He can be found. (Isa 55:6 KJV) Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Have Him place you where He wants you to be and become a willing vessel in what your ministry is and believe me you do have a ministry even if you are in a wheelchair. I can tell you that many people have that wheelchair mentality and hunt for obstacles in their path and if you hunt for the obstacles you will find them and instead of being stepping-stones they will become stumbling blocks. (1 Pet 2:7-8 NLT) Yes, he is very precious to you who believe. But for those who reject him, "The stone that was rejected by the builders has now become the cornerstone." (8) And the Scriptures also say, "He is the stone that makes people stumble, the rock that will make them fall." They stumble because they do not listen to God's word or obey it, and so they meet the fate that has been planned for them.

We are entering the new day and it is now here and it is in the spirit realm that you find it. (1 Cor 2:9 KJV) But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. Eyes have not seen nor natural ears heard what is being prepared for us so please come to the table and feast at the marriage supper that is prepared for you and become the natural Heir to the kingdom and take your rightful place. (Rev 19:9 KJV) And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. YOU are a king and a priest before God so step up and eat. (Rev 5:9-10 KJV) And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; (10) And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
