KEY SCRIPTURE: John 1:50 KJV “Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.”
God our father is not a static God. He keeps increasing His glory or works from one level to a higher one. He always does new things. Isaiah 43:19 KJV” Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” This is the hallmark about our Father. His steadfast love is new every morning. The Lord said to Nathaniel, because I said, I saw you under the fig tree, you believe, I am going to show you greater things than this. Is your Christian experience stagnant and dry? I have news for you. The Lord want to do greater things with you and through you.
What must you do? You need to leave the carnal plain into the Spirit level. Do you remember that in Matt 16::15-18, when the Lord Jesus asked his disciples, who do you say that I am? Peter answered, thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. The Lord added that it is not flesh and blood that revealed this to you, but my Father who is in Heaven. Peter functioned from the spirit in that hour.
In Nathaniel’s statement about Jesus, he said, you are the Son of God, the King of Israel. As the Lord said to Peter, this was not also from his natural mind, but from the Spirit of God. For a Jew to say someone is a Son of God means He is God (John 10:30-33). It does not come form a Jews own thinking to make such a statement, except God inspires him.
Now because Nathaniel was operating from the spiritual plain the Lord said He was going to show him greater manifestations. The Lord said, you do not give your precious pearls to swine Matt 7:6. Those who function from the flesh are likened to swine, for they keep going back into filth, even after being washed. To experience greater things of the Spirit then start exercising yourself in the Spirit. Give attention to the word of God. Fellowship with the brethren. Walk in love towards all Practice the word. He will start giving you more success in various aspects of life.
Psalms 1:1-3 He would make you a blessing to others in various ways.
