Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Hebrews 4:14-15.
For since He Whom God has sent speaks the words of God, God does not give Him His Spirit sparingly or by measure, but boundless is the gift God makes of His Spirit! John 3:34.
The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher. Luke 6:40.
But you are not to be called “Rabbi,” for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth “Father,” for you have one Father, and He is in heaven. Nor are you to be called “Teacher” for you have one Teacher, the Messiah. Matthew 23:8-10.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
There has never been any one like Jesus and yet He became one of you. And I have told you that you can be like Him, in fact that is My Will for each and every one of you, that you become conformed to the image of My Son so that He would be the first born of many brothers. Romans 8:29.
And in the beginning you were made in His image and likeness. Genesis 1:26; Genesis 2:7.
Jesus was so totally given to Me that nothing but My Words, works, and power flowed through Him. When asked who He was by the Pharisees, My Son replied by telling them about Me. Jesus said to them, “I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.” John 8:25-29. His whole life was to do the work I gave Him to do. John 17:4. He lived to manifest My glory (My goodness) to the world. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil. Acts 10:38.
The healing power that comes from Me by the Holy Spirit in Him had no hindrance. It was sure to flow. He never released His faith but what it achieved the purpose for which He released it. No word of His was void or without effect. When His disciples could not cast out a demon or heal the sick, He could. And yet He had emptied Himself of His God powers and become as one of you in all things but sin. Yes, He was tested in every way, just as you are—yet He did not sin.
And this is key here for what I am telling you today. He could have sinned, He had the same opportunities to do so that you do, but He never did. That is the key to letting My power flow unhindered through you so that you ask what you want and it is done for you. John 15:7. No sin was found in Jesus. The devil found no place in Him. John 14:30-31. The devil, evil, had no hold on My Son. So I was in Him with no hindrance.
My Son was conceived from the imperishable seed of My Word and not the corruptible seed of Adam’s line. Thus there was no pull towards sin in Him as there is in those born of Adam’s seed.
He always did what pleased Me so I was always with Him and when I am with you who or what can be against you?
Jesus walked in the light. He is pure. And when you step into and remain in the light, you become light. And light produces goodness.
No follower of His will ever walk in darkness, he or she will have the light of life. You stay in the light when you follow Him. Just as Abraham did. I told Him to walk before Me in My light and be blameless. And so you are when you are in Christ.
My Son emptied Himself of His own interests. He did not get in the way of My grace, My power, My life flowing in and through Him. He stepped aside and let Me do My perfect work in Him and through Him. He was transparent, open to Me. Nothing of self hindered the flow—no lust, no offense, no idle words or works—nothing but love was found in Him, so My power had no hindrance to move.
He was just as you are in every way except sin so He never compromised with sin. Thus My absolute fullness could reside in Him without measure. There were no hindrances, stumbling blocks, in Him.
I tell you in My Word, and I do not lie, My Word is truth, that you can be conformed to My Son. I tell you that believers will do the works He did and greater.
You need to die to yourself with Christ and rise up to newness of life. You need to be transformed by the renewal of your mind. You must die to yourself to have Me flow through you without hindrance so that you can live a life of pure power where none of your words or prayers go without producing the result for which they were intended. Just like Jesus.
Unless the seed falls to the ground and dies it produces no fruit.
You must be as He is in this world. And I tell you that if you believe you are. Everyone who has this hope based on Him keeps himself pure as He is pure. To live a powerful, fruitful life of miracles, signs and wonders as Jesus did you must LIVE PURE as He did.
As long as you are seeking your own glory and comfort you are not living pure so that My power can flow through you without hindrance as it did through Jesus. I could pour My Spirit into Him without measure because He put no limits on Me. When you have self getting in the way you hinder the flow of the Spirit. Remember Jesus told the Pharisees that He did not seek His own Glory but only Mine. He was very clear that He did not take any credit for the works He did but attributed all His miracles to Me, saying He did nothing on His own but only said My Words and that the works He did were done by My working in Him.
Because He spoke only My Words I could pour My Spirit into Him without measure. Because He refused to let sin enter Him He was a pure vessel that did not mix anything else in with My pure love.
He was open only to Me. And that is the key to powerful living. Shut all evil and darkness out of your heart. Do not permit it or entertain it. Humility, love and reverence are the way to enter into the glorious existence.
How do you become like Jesus so you can live the powerful life where you are always able to accomplish My Works as healer, provider, deliverer, and shelter?
Let Me tell you. You must take Jesus as your teacher. I tell you this in My Word but many miss its full implication. If you want to do the works He did and greater you must learn from Him how to do them.
I told you that every student who is fully trained will be like his teacher. Just like his teacher. Luke 6:40. I told you that you have but one Teacher and that is the Messiah. Matthew 23:8-10. On the mountain of the Transfiguration I told you, “This is My Beloved Son, listen to Him!” Mark 9:7. Jesus told you to come to Him and learn from Him. Jesus told you that He is the way, the truth, and the life—that He is the light of the world. Mary told you to do whatever He tells you. I tell you to be conformed to the image of My Son.
I, the Father, am the source. I am the Creator, the Healer, the miracle worker, the Provider, the Victory, the Almighty. I give you grace, gifts, and mercy.
Jesus is the Teacher, the Shepherd, the Guide, the Way to Me. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the light of the World to lead all to Me. In Him are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. You see in the Book of Proverbs that Wisdom is a teacher that calls out to you to come to her table.
The Holy Spirit is the way I and My Son communicate with you and give life to you. He is the way I and My Son reveal things to you. The way we instruct you and the way you receive power and are born again. He is the one that makes you partakers of My nature. By My Spirit I guide and lead you. He reveals My deep thoughts to you. He teaches you all things. He testifies to Jesus. My healing power, My resurrection power, flow to you through Him.
Jesus teaches you by the Holy Spirit in you.
You must become like Jesus. Conformed to His image. You will become like your teacher if you spend enough time listening to and imitating Him. If you emulate His purity. If you refuse to entertain thoughts that lead to sin.
As He is so are you in this world. You must live, walk, talk, and be as He was on earth and as He is now.
Jesus teaches you how to relate to Me, how to pray to Me, and how to please Me.
Jesus never said He was the Healer or Provider. He said that He did nothing on His own of the great works He did but that it was Me doing My work in Him. He told you that He is your Teacher, your good Shepherd, the Gate, the Bread of Life, the Way, the Truth, the Life, and the Light of the world. He told you that He came to testify to the truth and to bring you abundant life. He told you I sent Him to preach the good news of the Kingdom and to seek out and save the lost. He told you to pray to Me and ask for good things but He told you to learn from Him. He is the great teacher who shows you how to live as He did and how to let Me do My Works in the world through you.
I gave you the law through Moses but I give you grace and truth through My Son Jesus. I have made Him your brother, your kinsman redeemer, and your High Priest before Me who ever intercedes for you. He is your Savior. Without Jesus you would still be dead in your sins and trespasses.
And He is your teacher. He will show you how to live a life of power and great works that bless everyone on earth if you choose to listen and to set aside any encumbrance of sin and selfishness that would hinder My work in you. If you are willing to empty yourself as He did to become full of Me. The fullness of the Godhead can dwell in you just as it did in Him.
There has never been anyone that lived the consecrated life as Jesus did. Peter and Paul came close, and what deeds of power they did! But no one has ever emptied themselves of self like My Son did. Are you willing to commit to it? It is the most wonderful powerful free precious way to live, beyond what you could ever fathom, if you want it. And you can have it. You can do the works He did and greater. Are you ready to get yourself out of the way and step into the glorious existence?
Start by denying yourself any impure, idle thoughts or conversation. Think only on what is true, noble, excellent, and praiseworthy. Stop taking offense and worrying about revenge. Stop grabbing everything as fast as you can before others get it. Stop gossiping and fault finding. Start loving and forgiving. Let go of greed and bitterness. Let go of immoral, lustful thoughts and replace them with My Word. My Word is pure and sweet.
Let go of fear and depression and trust in My love and provision. Get excited about all the good plans I have for you now and forever.
Spend your days with Me and with your teacher Jesus. I once spoke to you in varied ways through the prophets but now I speak to you directly through My Son. Listen to Him. Begin by reading His Words in the Gospels and making a careful study of His ways, His words, and His life. You will become like your teacher.
I love you and I have made a way for you right to My throne. A way to live a life where no word of yours is without effect for My power will flow through you without hindrance. And that way is Jesus, your teacher, your guide, your shepherd and your brother!
