3 Unbelievable Things You Can Do As A Christian
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

John 14:12 KJV

During the three year ministry of Jesus, he did many mighty things, which proved that he was, truly, the son of God. People thought he was a man until they witnessed his mighty works. Even his disciples were surprised when he performed some miracles that were beyond their imagination.

No man could ever imagine that another person besides Jesus would be able to perform greater miracles than him. Before the feast of the passover, Jesus changed the mindsets of his disciples when he told them that they could do better works than him if they believe on him.

They wouldn’t have believed that they could be better than him if another person besides Jesus revealed it to them.

Who would have imagined another person performing greater miracles than the Son of God?

After the ascension of Jesus Christ, his disciples began to do greater works than him, which confirmed his words in John 24:12. As long as you believe him, you will do greater works than him. It may seem unbelievable, but it is true because God is not a man that he should lie.

Once you doubt your ability to do greater works than him, Jesus, you won’t be able to do it, no matter your relationship with him.

What, then, are the unbelievable things you can do if you believe on him?

1. You Can Raise the Dead

14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.

15 And I am glad for your sakes that I was not there, to the intent ye may believe; nevertheless let us go unto him.

16 Then said Thomas, which is called Didymus, unto his fellowdisciples, Let us also go, that we may die with him.

17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.

18 Now Bethany was nigh unto Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off:

19 And many of the Jews came to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their brother.

20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.

21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

22 But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.

23 Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

27 She saith unto him, Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.

28 And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The Master is come, and calleth for thee.

29 As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto him.

30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town, but was in that place where Martha met him.

31 The Jews then which were with her in the house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that she rose up hastily and went out, followed her, saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.

32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.

34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

35 Jesus wept.

36 Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

37 And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

38 Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

40 Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

42 And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

John 11:14 – 44 KJV

Just as Jesus rose Lazarus, from dead, who was dead for four days, so Paul and Peter rose Eutychus and Tabitha respectively. That confirmed the words of Jesus in John 14:12, which says we can do whatever Jesus did when he was on earth.

As long as you can raise the dead, you can do it. So many Christians have attended burial ceremonies without ever thinking of raising the person who brought unstoppable tears from the attendees. Perhaps, you doubt your ability in Christ when you saw the lifeless body in a coffin.

If you don’t want to do it, you may be call upon when you don’t expect it. Peter didn’t know someone, Tabitha, was dead when he was in Lydda. Moreover, he was not prepared when some disciples at Joppa sent for him.

You don’t need to be prepared before you do the works of Christ. As long as you believe his words stated in John 14:12, you can do great works — even greater works than Jesus Christ.

Paul didn’t know Eutychus would die when he preached at Troas. You may be caught unaware; never wait till you are called to raise dead.

Exercise your faith in the word of God by raising anyone who is lifeless around you. What is the essence of the faith you have that can not raise the dead. God is counting on you to perform better miracles than him.

Furthermore, you can rise the dead whichever way the Holy Spirit lay in your heart. Jesus commanded Lazarus after he prayed. Peter did likewise when he rose Tabitha, Dorcas, from dead. However, Paul fell on Eutychus — this was exactly what Elijah, in 1 Kings 17:17-21, did when he rose the son of the widow of Zarephath — when he rose him from dead.

The Holy Spirit will tell you the method when you are about to raise any lifeless person. However, do not expect Holy Spirit to talk to you if you are not taking Jesus on his words.

2. You Can Make the Elements of Nature Obey You.

Jesus walked on water

23 And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.

24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

25 And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

26 And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!

Matthew 8:23 – 27 KJV.

25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.

Acts 16: 25 – 26 KJV

Jesus walked on water; thereby, confirming the kind of person he was. Moreover, he rebuked the winds and the sea, and they remained calm. According to his words in John 14:12, you can rebuke the elements of nature.

When you speak believing the words of Jesus, elements or forces of nature have no choice than to obey you. Paul and Silas shook the foundation of the prison with songs and prayers. They proved elements or forces of nature could come to our aid when we are in trouble.

The Jailer was surprised, but Paul and Silas were not moved. When Jesus rebuked the wind and sea, the disciples were surprised because — at that time — he had not informed them about their ability if they believe on him.

It shouldn’t surprise when you come across group of Christians in any part of the world praying against the element or force of nature, which may hinder whatever their program. You may not even pray before you stop an element of nature. You can start or stop them if you believe the words of Jesus.

3. You Can Provide Money or Food in a Miraculous way.

Peter brought out money in the mouth of fish

24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?

25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?

26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Matthew 17: 24 – 27 KJV

I’ve heard some pastors preached on how God provided for people by giving them idea, which transmuted to cash. They made the people believe God cannot give a physical cash.

Truth be told, their sermon was motivational, but it was not biblical. Who told you God could not provide a physical cash? When Jesus told Peter get money from the mouth of fish, they was no money in the mouth of the fish. If Jesus could do it, his word says you can do better than him.

You can provide money in a miraculous way, not only when God gives you an idea, but also when you believe on his word.

There were cookers when the children of Israel ate Manna in the wilderness.

Where did they see Manna?

It came directly from heaven. It may sound magical, but it’s real. If you pray for provision, you may be surprised to see the provision in a seemingly magical way. God may not send someone as he sent the widow of Zarephath to Elijah. He can put the money you requested in your wardrobe or car, anywhere, as he put a Shekel in the mouth of fish for the payment of tax. He can make it drop from heaven as he rained Manna from heaven — God is the same yesterday, today and forever. It will only happen in the proportion of your faith in his words.

Don’t let motivational speakers decrease your faith. Of course, God can give you idea ( I don’t dispute that) on how to make money. Also, he can give you money or any material substance directly from him to you without giving you idea — it all depends on your faith.
