Greater Works Part 1 by Apostle Joshua Selman
Pray: Lord, I submit to Your work in me. I submit my life, body, all that I have, and all that I am to You.
I desire to see Jesus revealed and Jesus glorified, through my life.
From a biblical perspective, at the moment of salvation, you receive the life of Jesus Christ; you’re not giving your life.
It’s when you willingly offer your life to God that you become a vessel for His use. (Romans 12:1)
Psalm 91:1-3 (KJV)
1. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: My God; in him will I trust.
3. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, And from the noisome pestilence.
Consecration to God is two-fold:
1. Abstinence from (certain things)
2. Devotion unto (Him)
God desires a manifestation of His power and glory upon the Earth once more before Jesus returns.
“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.”
John 14:12 KJV
It’s crucial to understand that the same authority bestowed upon Jesus has been passed on to the Church.
Three Reasons to believe in the concept of “Greater Works” from the Scriptures:
1. Jesus Himself said so.
2. The believer has been given authority through Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 28:18-20, Luke 10:19, Ephesians 2:6)
3. Every believer has access to The Spirit of God, on account of the finished work of Christ.
(Acts 1:8, 10:38)
John 20:30-31 (KJV)
And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: but these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
What is Greater Works
It is widely acknowledged that Jesus performed numerous miracles. Yet, Jesus Himself emphasized that believers would accomplish even greater works.
- When Jesus spoke of “greater,” He indeed meant “greater.” However, our comprehension of “greater” should be scrutinized in the context of Scripture. John 12:24 KJV
- In spite of the many miracles Jesus performed while on earth, there was one miracle which was the greatest need of man that He could not perform before His death on the cross. The one miracle He could not perform was “Greater Works” (representing the gift of Eternal life). This miracle demanded death. He couldn’t give anyone eternal life. (Colossians 1:12-14, 19-20, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 4:16, 9:22)By “Greater Works”, Jesus meant you will be empowered in partnership with the Holy Spirit to bear witness to the truth.
Each time you hinder others from experiencing the life of God, you ultimately hinder yourself and may experience weariness in fulfilling your divine assignment.
Empowering others to become witnesses for the greater works mandated by Jesus for every believer is essential.
The ultimate goal for “Greater Works” is that the knowledge of the glory of God fills the entire earth, attracting multitudes to Jesus. (Habakkuk 2:14)
“For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”
(Habakkuk 2:14 KJV)
Isaiah 40:5 KJV)
“And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.”
No single believer can fully reveal the entirety of God’s glory.
One believer might reveal His favor, while another showcases His healing power to the nations.
Why Greater Works?
The ultimate goal for “Greater Works” is that the knowledge and the glory of God fill the entire earth, thereby drawing many to Jesus. (Habakkuk 2:14, Isaiah 40:5)
The Glory of God is multifaceted.
The Glory of God consists of everything that makes Him God (His love, mercy, power, favor, faithfulness, etc.). No one believer can reveal the entirety of His Glory.
The Spirit of God will once again be poured out upon all people, regardless of age.
Individuals from diverse backgrounds and walks of life will access power by The Spirit of God. (Acts 2:17)
The revelation of God’s glory extends beyond the pulpit.
We have been acquainted with the God who sends people. It’s now time to know the individuals sent by God.
We are in an era where revealing the fullness of God’s glory is crucial to solidify people’s faith without room for doubt, as belief won’t come easily (John 20:31).
Greater works will result in greater convictions. Greater convictions will bring about greater salvation in all ramifications. And with greater salvation, there will be a greater acknowledgment of Christ in the world of men. (Daniel 3:28-29)
Forces that must be engaged for every believer desiring to activate Greater Works:
1. The Force of Prayer (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Every agenda or program of God is birthed and managed through the weapon and tool of prayer.
The prophetic assignment, when executed accurately, involves discerning the blueprint of God’s plan through fervent prayer.
The true assignment of a Prophet goes beyond just prophesying. The prophetic is closely connected with intercession.
Whenever you witness something succeeding in the earthly realm, according to God’s satisfaction and purpose, prayer ushered it.
To impact nations, you must begin by transforming your own Jerusalem, starting with your life and family.
There are certain things God desires that can only happen through the power of prayer.
Many pray but few understand the assignment and dimensions of prayer.
A person of prayer with understanding is a person of power in their generation.
God moves when people pray: He hears when you cry unto Him, but He moves when you pray. (Matthew 18:19, James 5:16, Luke 1:19)
Learn to pray as a habit, not as an emergency response system. Prayer enlarges and expands your capacity.
Prayer requires stamina. Even in the absence of results, keep praying.
You won’t pray for one day and receive the results of ten years; prayer is an investment.
Praying in the spirit solves many challenges simultaneously. It edifies your spirit man while dealing with the current challenge.
There are layers in the spirit realm that only prayer can unveil.
It’s possible to pray amiss. As a believer, prayer should be accompanied by clear understanding (James 4:3).
Make prayer a habitual practice, not just an emergency response.
Being a person of prayer often means you won’t need specific prayer points.
Just because you said “Amen” and stayed long in prayer doesn’t equate to effective prayer; effective prayer must be Word-compliant (effectual) and fervent. (James 5:16B)
Your first response to any prompting in the realm of the spirit should be prayer.
Prayer filters all revelations; driving out anything that is inconsistent with The Word of God.
Choose one day during the week, dedicate two to three hours, and pray for your personal requests and the program of God into your life.
Gather your family members and unite in agreement as you carry out this assignment.
Pray: Father, place upon me the grace and discipline to pray, with understanding.
No matter how sure you are, never take a step that is not filtered through in the place of prayer. It can save you ten years of misery.
If you do not know what to do in your life, start by praying.
Direction comes in the place of prayer, and with direction comes confirmation, through the lens of Scripture.
Prayer is never convenient. You must discipline yourself and learn to build a system of consistency that enhances your prayer life, to become a person of prayer. (James 5:18, Ecclesiastes 10:10, 11:3)
Prayer is an investment; it requires stamina. (Luke 18:1)
One strategy that can enhance your prayer life is an atmosphere of worship.
Praying effectively involves aligning your prayer with Scripture while praying fervently means your heart is fully engaged in it. (James 5:16b).
When you declare, “Let God arise and His enemies be scattered,” remember it’s His enemies, not your personal adversaries. God’s enemy is not someone you dislike.
Spiritual Forces for Experiencing Greater Works:
1. The Force of Prayer. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
2. The Force of Wisdom. (Mark 6:2)
For anyone failing in business, by the power that raised Christ from the dead, this week, may your eyes see the secrets allocated for your rising. #Prophecy
In the name of Jesus, everyone experiencing challenges with house rent, by the power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, between now and the end of this week, may my God raise help for you! #Prophecy
I decree and declare, may the divine connection prepared for you, come to you, in the name of Jesus. #Prophecy
Every demonic attachment to your body, just as it came, it shall return to the devil, in the name of Jesus. #Prophecy
For someone working in the para-military, a posting is prepared for you. In the name of Jesus, the grace for favor rests upon you now, in the name of Jesus.
In the name of Jesus, the ability to discern spiritual things with precision and accuracy, may that grace rest upon you!
What is Wisdom?
1. Wisdom is the accurate application of spiritual knowledge.
2. Wisdom is the supernatural ability to use the written and inspired Word of God to make accurate decisions and provide solutions to life’s problems.
Decisions decide destinies.
You do not choose consequences, you make decisions that have consequences connected to them, by default.
There are four kinds of wisdom (James 1:5, 3:13-17):
1. Earthly Wisdom – It is called natural wisdom and comes as a result of common sense and instincts.
2. Sensual or Philosophical Wisdom – It comes through study, science, philosophy, and interacting with your sociological environment.
3. Devilish or Demonic Wisdom – It comes as a sense of recognizing right and wrong but merely motivated by your fraternity with the devil or familiar spirits.
4. Wisdom from Above – This is godly or supernatural wisdom, and it is the most superior kind of wisdom.
A person can receive wisdom from the Lord that surpasses their exposure, intellect, and age.
This wisdom is the most superior kind, propelling individuals forward with incremental steps.
Lay your hands on your head and pray: Father, the wisdom required to manifest greater works, I receive it now, in the name of Jesus.
I obtain grace to make quality decisions, in the name of Jesus!
Wisdom has the remarkable ability to transform ordinary individuals into shining stars.
(1 Corinthians 2:7; Luke 1:17, Daniel 12:3)
Two Keys to Becoming Wise:
1. Listen to wise men. (Proverbs 13:20)
2. Follow The Book of Wisdom (The Bible).
