Every day JesusEvery day Jesus performed miracles: He healed lepers, restored sight to the blind, forgave prostitutes and publicans and cancelled their DEBT; He liberated people possessed by demons, resurrected the dead and brought life and hope even to the darkest, gloomiest places. What a sight it must have been for His fans to walk with Him along the roads of Galilee, admiring His powerful work of salvation and hearing His message that restored life to even the deadest of souls. In short, He really seemed omnipotent. And indeed, He said that what He did came from the Father, He who is omnipotent.
But the most incredible thing about it all was that, looking His fans straight in the eye, He told them that they too would perform marvelous works like His… actually, even more powerful! Yes, I want to read the exact words of Jesus as reported by my polestar:
=> “Verily, verily, I say to you that whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and will do even greater works, because I am going to the Father;” (John 14:12). Astonishing!!! It really beggars belief. Even His apostles took Him seriously and started to fly high like their Master. What glorious times those of the first Christians must have been, in which every day thousands of sincere souls joined / were baptized. The prince of the Matrix and all his demons seemed no longer to exist. And yet, history teaches me that these glorious days did not last long.
