Are You Doing Greater Works Than Jesus? (Easter Church, Apr 1)
Apr 01 2018
Are you doing greater works than Jesus? At Church on Easter, a number of new people joined us. One man forgave his parents and thanked Jesse, saying, "It worked!" Christ came to put everything back to order, making a way to return to the Father. Jesse suggested that it's more difficult for educated people to return to God. People with degrees, even those in the Bible, are nutcases! Jesse asked his Biblical Question from John 14:12 — Are you doing greater works than Jesus? Jesus said: 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. One man from Long Beach, California, said he came to Church to thank Jesse. He went to forgive his parents. He recounted telling himself that if he can get rid of his anger, he'd dedicate his life to God. But when it happened, God dedicated him to Himself! He realized Jesse told the truth about men feeling emotional like women, like their mothers. He held a grudge for 30 years against his absent father, who became a Christian, but denied wronging his son. Thankfully he felt no anger at his father's denial, because he had no anger anymore. He repeats that he doesn't have to do anything, but that life keeps coming. When you forgive, God takes away the darkness, and frees you. A teenage son and his mother joined Church in person visiting from the UK. They watch Jesse on YouTube. Jesse urges them to practice the Silent Prayer, findable on http://rebuildingtheman.com/church Another man asked what it means to "relax and go through it," when experiencing inner conflict. Do not reach out for a drink, smoke, food, or sex for comfort. Simply bear it. A number of people gave donations via YouTube "Super Chat," some asking questions about "food addiction," and forgiving people who do not admit they're wrong. Jesse told about how he'd grown fat over the years and realized it — when you drop the anger, you do not have the conflict, and can overcome it. The beautiful thing about forgiveness is that it does not depend on the other person's reaction or admission of guilt. Jesse brought a girl and man on-stage to illustrate a point about how anger enters a child's soul through his mother and father who are in an angry, fallen state. Women hate weak men. And weak men can't deal with angry women. The wrongs people do us are not personal — no one can help but be evil when of their father the devil. We read another passage from the Bible, 2 Timothy 1:6-11 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, to which I was appointed a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles. Jesse pointed out from these scriptures that God did not give us a spirit of timidity. You're not supposed to be timid! The love of God is not emotional love. Jesse recounted confronting people at the anti-gun rally March for Our Lives, which Jesse calls "March Against Our Rights." He called people "racist," even though "racism" does not exist, to turn the tables on the evil people who always cry "racism" against good people. Jesse called them out on being "dumb." A viewer Ignacio from Mexico asked how to find a good church. Jesse suggested he start a church where he is, and discuss issues with them, rather than trying to settle.
