Jesus, The Way to The Father -Rodna Epley

rodnalight“Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves. Most assuredly, 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 My Father.” – John 14:11-12

He who believes (aka whosoever) in Jesus will do the works we see Him do. Imagine all the works Jesus did in the Bible—we are to be doing those; AND greater works. The greater works come from the Father where Jesus went and where we are seated in Him.

“I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father.” – John 16:28-30

Jesus started with the Father and ended with the Father. He didn’t sit down on the ground outside the tomb after the resurrection. He sat down on the throne after He ascended to the Father’s right hand of glory where we are seated in Him NOW. Our perspective must change to where we sit now. Not from the earth as a victim looking up with only a hope of glory. But we are seated in Christ now in the Father looking down with all principalities and powers and rulers of darkness under our feet, victorious and able to go in and out of the Father’s Presence taking “home” with us everywhere we go in the realm Jesus has assigned us to operate in on earth. We do the works Jesus did and greater works (which is way more than saving people’s souls but it does include that) because The Father loves us in the very same way He loves Jesus. The words we speak and works we do are powered by the Father so they manifest and prosper where He sends them.

“And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,” – Ephesians 2:6

Where is Christ Jesus? In the Father! We are seated with Christ as joint-heirs.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. – John 14:6

Jesus is the Way to what? He is the Way to the Father. And He leads us there NOW, not after we die. He does lead us there after we die if we want to be a “Resurrection Christian”—Christ in us, the hope of glory. But if we want to be a “Living Christian” then we can go to the Father now—us in Christ, He is our Lord of glory. That’s what it means to be “in Christ”.
