THE WORKS

 

John 14:10

 

 

 

 

 

The Key of The Works

 

John 14:10  “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works.

 

11  “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves.

 

12 “Truly, truly, 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 the Father.

 

13  “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  14 “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

 

15  “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments

 

Jesus begins this Key Statement to "Believe Me" which communicates the idea of "a conviction or belief respecting your relationship to God and divine things, with the idea of trust and holy fervor born of faith and joined with it."

 

Jesus next teaches us that we are in Holy Union with Him and God the Father.  The process is now complete.  We are one.


Jesus started with "Believe in Me" and now closes the circle of His teaching with "Believe Me".  It is one thing to believe IN God, but completely another thing to BELIEVE HIM.  The former, even the demon believe and shudder.  But only a true Follower of Jesus can Believe Him because that requires complete submission and obedience to Him.  It determines the course and outcome of your life.

Now it can be said, "the one 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 the Father."  We are one with Jesus and God the Father and it is HE who is doing the Works.

Likewise, now it can be said, "Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.  14 “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it."


Finally, Jesus utters a Great Prophetic Truth, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments", and this time it is not a request or a command, IT IS THE RESULT.
