Bill Johnson on doing the works of the Father

"True believers are being positioned to display the wonders of the almighty God to the world around us. The Bible actually calls us a new creation, a new race of people that had never existed before. Many of the prophecies that Jesus made concerning His church have never been fulfilled. The "greater works" of John 14:12 are yet to come upon an entire generation. But this is the hour all the prophets spoke of. Kings and prophets longed to see what we have seen. It is important that we say yes to all that has been provided for us through the blood of Jesus. It is time for the people of God to rise as one and display the power and glory of God.
Jesus once told a crowd of people, "If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me" (John 10:37). Angels, the prophets, nature, and Scripture all testified about who Jesus was. Yet He was willing to hang the credibility of all those witnesses on one thing - the works of the Father. Without question, the works of the Father that Jesus is referring to are the miracles recorded throughout the Gospel of John. If Jesus didn't do miracles, people were not required to believe. I look for the day when the church, His body, makes the same statement to the world around us: if we don't do the works of our Father, do not believe us."
