Our hands are to do His works.
Repeat in faith this inspired phrase: “Everything can be changed by prayer!” Everything can be transformed by God’s intervention.
Read with faith: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me shall do the works that I do, and do greater things than these. For I go to the Father ” (Jn 14:12).
Jesus is thus saying that, “While I am there, at the right hand of the Father, I cannot be here; while I stand with the Father, those who believe in me will do the works that I do and even greater. In that time between my going and my return, between the Ascension and Parousia, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do ”.
That is why we are working what we do. Of course, it is not us, but the Lord! But the Lord is working through us. We are the hands, the arms, the mouth of the Lord. We are the members of the Body of Christ.
When He returns, He will no longer have to heal, because then there will be no sickness, no death, no pain, no weeping. But for now this is the law of the Kingdom of God , the eternal principle: while Jesus is there at the right hand of the Father, those who believe in Him must do the works that He has done. We are now, in fact, the members of Christ. It is our hands that must do His works.
