Why are we not seeing the "greater works"?
Because we need to
get back to preaching the message of; Blood and
Fire! "The Glorious Gospel". What is this message of
blood and fire? Simply put, Salvation from sin,
death, hell and the grave through the the Blood of
Christ and then Baptism into the Holy Spirit for
service. Or maybe in another way;
Our life in a heavenly calling; The Cross and
We need to be preaching the life changing message of
the Cross of Christ.
We need to be preaching that we take up our own
daily cross of discipleship.
We need to be preaching that it is His ministry and
His inheritance that He desires to have in us.
We need to be preaching the age old gospel message,
with the preaching of the word of God central and
the most important thing in our church services.
Yes, we need to be preaching the life changing
message of the Cross of Christ, a message of
conviction, a message that convicts men and women of
their sin and the need of repentance for those sins
and to gain freedom from them. That freedom only
comes through Jesus Christ.
This is the only thing that can change men and women
from a life of sin and bring them to true
repentance. The Lord can forgive every sin and
pardon all uncleanness. His precious blood that was
shed on Calvary's hill has paid for our sin if we
accept Christ Jesus as Lord of our life and ask Him
to come in to our heart.
There is a heaven to gain and a hell to avoid. Today
the nations and their peoples are going to hell in a
hurry. They don't want to know the age old message
of the blood of Christ and the true Salvation which
comes through Him.
We need to be preaching holiness, without which no
man shall see God. This holiness is not of our own
making, but is received by faith and that faith
(given from Him), it is accounted to us for
Now, through repentance a life of holiness before
God can be achieved, as we daily live out this
wonderful forgiveness from God and His
sanctification though the power of His baptism into
the Holy Spirit.
Thank God that He has received our repentance,
forgiven us and put us on a plain pathway to life
eternal with Him, by Him and through Him.

is 2009 and it is high time that we walked in the
power of the Holy Spirit; Healing the sick, casting
out devils, working miracles, understanding the
spiritual ability of transportation from place to
place for the purposes of preaching the Gospel, the
Good News. Is this something new, as if it just
arrived on the scene with Pentecostal/Charismatic?
No! All the way though Church history amazing
demonstrations of mighty power in the Holy Spirit
have been seen and in fact the use of them has
decreased throughout history instead of what should
have happened. Now the the Christians who exercise
His power need to "come out".
A miracle, derived from the old Latin word miraculum
meaning "something wonderful", is a striking
interposition of divine intervention in the universe
by which the ordinary course and operation of nature
is overruled, suspended, or modified.
A miracle is a suspension of normal laws of nature
by the almighty God in the power of His Spirit.
The entire Bible is packed with miracles. Christ's
birth death, resurrection and ascension are all
Miracles are evidence for the existence of an
omnipotent, omniscient, and benevolent God.
The descriptions of most miracles in the New
Testament are often the same as the commonplace
definition: God intervenes in the laws of nature. In
John's Gospel the "miracles" are referred to as
"signs" and the emphasis is on God demonstrating his
underlying normal activity in remarkable ways.
Jesus is recorded as having turned water into wine;
creating matter out of nothing, and thus turning a
loaf of bread into many loaves of bread; and raising
the dead. Jesus explains in the New Testament that
miracles are performed by faith in God. "If you have
faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to
this mountain, “move from here to there” and it will
move." (Gospel of Matthew 17:20).
