Scripture: Ephesians 1:18-23, John 14:12
Ephesians 1:18-23 outlines three phases of relationship. First is the hope of His calling, developing what Jesus had with the Father, followed by the riches of the glory of His inheritance which are the works Jesus did, finished with the exceeding greatness of His power, the greater works! In this second purpose we see that walking into the glory is an issue of inheritance. Walking in the glory is our destined inheritance. Walking in the power of the Spirit is our call. The key that opens the door is the relationship with the Father. If we develop the relationship, the glory will follow. The works will follow the glory. No wonder Jesus said, “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he shall do also, and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” It all follows a maturing relationship with the Father! If we will focus on the relationship, the works will follow. The works that Jesus did, and the greater are a product of relationship. For three and a half years, the witnesses of Revelation are responsible for all the judgments with the goal of repentance for the rebellious ones! How much repentance do we see in Revelation? Not nearly enough! What do we know about the witnesses—they are overcomers. They preserve the harvest for the church to gather!
