If God is for me . . . who can be against me?

He has made us stewards of the Presence of God . . .

"Don't Believe Us Unless We Are Doing

the Works That Jesus Did!"

By Bill Johnson



Who Touched Me?


Jesus was walking down a crowded road with people from all sides trying to get close to Him.


A woman reached out and touched His garment. He stopped and asked, "Who touched Me?" The disciples were startled by such a question because, to them, it had been such an obvious answer—everyone! But Jesus went on to say that He felt virtue (Dunamis) flow from Him. He was anointed by the Holy Spirit. The actual power of the Spirit of God left His being and flowed into that woman and healed her. The anointing was resident in Jesus' physical body the same as with every Believer. The faith of that woman put a demand on that anointing in Jesus. She was healed because the anointing breaks the yoke.


A very popular verse for receiving an offering is, "...Freely you have received; freely give" (Matthew 10:8). But the context of the verse is often forgotten. Jesus was referring to the ministry of the supernatural. Listen to the implication: "I have received something that I am to give away!" What? The Holy Spirit. He is the greatest gift anyone could ever receive. And He is living in me. 


Giving Away the Presence of God


When we minister in the anointing, we actually give away the presence of God—we impart Him to others. Jesus went on to teach His disciples what it meant to give it away. It included the obvious things, such as healing the sick, casting out demons, etc. But it also included one of the forgotten aspects: "When you go into a household...let your peace come up on it" (Matthew 10:12-13). There is an actual impartation of His presence that we are able to make in these situations. This is how we bring the lost into an encounter with God. We learn to recognize His presence, cooperate with His passion for people, and invite them to receive salvation.


He has made us stewards of the presence of God. It is not as though we can manipulate and use His presence for our own religious purposes. We are moved upon by the Holy Spirit, thereby becoming co-laborers with Christ. In that position we invite Him to invade the circumstances that arise before us.


The more obvious ways are in preaching or praying for people's specific needs. Don't underestimate this important tool. By looking for chances to serve, we give the Holy Spirit the opportunity to do what only He can do—miracles. I don't see everyone I pray for healed. I'm not batting even close to a thousand. But there are many more healed than would be had I not prayed for anyone!


Let God Do What Only God Can Do


Give God a chance to do what only He can do. He looks for those who are willing to be smeared with Him, allowing His presence to affect others for good. A visiting minister recently told us, "The difference between you and me is this: if I pray for a dead person and they are not raised from the dead, I pray for the next dead person too. I don't quit!" 


Jesus said, "If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me." The works of the Father are miracles. Even the Son of God stated it was the miraculous that validated His ministry on Earth. In that context, He said, "...he who believes in Me…greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father" (John 14:12). The miraculous is a large part of the plan of God for this world. And it is to come through the Church.


I look forward to the day when the Church stands up and says, "Don't believe us unless we're doing the works that Jesus did!" The Bible says that we are to pursue earnestly spiritual gifts, and that those gifts make us established. Which ones? All of them.

 "Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]


         ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 






Words of prophecy:


*       The answer does not lie in looking back at the past but, rather, in gazing continually [steadfastly] into the eyes of My Heart [Word].


        ...."Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past".... Isaiah 43:18 NASB


        ...."[Now having received the Holy Spirit {Who is the Spirit of Love}, and being led and directed by Him] if you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of anyone, they are retained".... John 20:23 The Amplified Translation


        ...."Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you".... Matthew 5:10-12 NASB


        ...."Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you".... 1 Peter 4:12-14 NASB


        Love is ALWAYS the answer - and, so, it is truly of the utmost importance for us to be found "abiding" there - regardless of what we may be seeing, thinking, hearing or feeling in the "storm". "Immediate" and sustained forgiveness is an important key, also, as this "allows" the flow of God's Grace and Wisdom to continually enter into one's heart [empowering them] - and, also, [through one's Love and forgiveness]releasing the one who acted in an ungodly manner into the Father's hands completely that He might do whatever is necessary for their greatest Eternal benefit - both right now and in the days ahead.


        ...."Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing [maintaining a deep revelation of the spiritual reality] that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing".... James 1:2-4 NASB


Prayer of Proclamation:


        Father, we thank You and praise You that as we are found "abiding" in Your Love there is a continual flow of Your Grace and Wisdom abounding towards us. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.







 Read the Word of God!
