Jesus Is Not Your Scapegoat To Do Nothing
Faith and being stagnate are two different things. Faith requires work. It requires you operating on the word of God and doing it. Jesus is not your scapegoat to not do anything. Jesus is not a scapegoat to live in fear, poverty, sickness, depression, pain, turmoil, and bondage. He spoke on freedom from all of those things through the kingdom. “Seek first the kingdom and his righteousness and All things will be added unto you.” –Matthew 6:33. We focus on Jesus’ action on the cross that we rarely understand what he did once he was removed from that cross. Jesus isn’t still on the cross. So why are we still looking toward the cross as if that’s where he resides? He has risen and is seated on and at the right side of his Father now… and so are you!
“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
“Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” - John 16:7 KJV
These 2 verses can provide much illumination by the Holy Spirit but I share with you what he has informed to me. Jesus is stating two obvious things: 1.) that he's leaving. That’s he not coming back to simply “take your wheel” and 2.) Anyone who believes in him will do greater works. He also states if he doesn't leave; the Comforter (Holy Spirit) won't come unto us.
Jesus left us to do greater works with the Holy Spirit. What he has, we have. He is not coming back to take your problems or wheel away. He has given you control to drive in this world of darkness through the Holy Spirt and expects you to do greater works than he has. He expects you to finish what he started with the power he has given us. He is waiting on you to take the limitations off the Holy Spirit with carnal thinking and let him have his way to do greater works through you! You now have the same abilities as the one who overcame this world, listen to your big brother as he verifies.
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 KJV
