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
Jesus has left His work in our hands. It means something wonderful to be baptized in the Holy Ghost. The Jews were unbelieving until they heard the Holy Ghost speaking in other tongues through those unlearned people. They knew it was God. They realized they had crucified the Lord, that He had risen and gone to glory, and they cried out, "What shall we do?"
Jesus prayed on the cross, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." When the Holy Ghost came they knew what they had done. The "tongues" were a sign to unbelievers. Today it is one of the greatest things God ever did.
The Holy Ghost will sing through us: He is training us to sing at the marriage supper of the Lamb. We shall not all die, but we shall all be changed. We shall have a glorious body, like Jesus, and shall rise to meet Him in the air, full of joy.
People who are healed are full of joy and sometimes jump and dance when the healing power comes into them. The Holy Ghost takes all the deadness and stiffness out of them; sometimes God slays them and lays them down so He can talk to them.
Men and women, rejoice, seek the baptism, and receive the gifts. You shall have them if you believe for them; and you shall be witnesses. May God seal this in your heart, in the name of Jesus.
Jesus, use me to do Your works that God
the Father might be glorified. Amen.
