Asking IN Context

[John 14:12-14] "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. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it."

[John 15:5-8] "I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing...If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples."

As I was reading through these chapters, the word of the Lord came to me, corrected and reminded me to "ask in context". Because these scriptures have been taken out of context for so long, we have overlooked and or forgotten what we truly should be "asking" for.

  • What Jesus was speaking of, was that we should be "asking" to 'do the works that He Himself did; and also greater works than those'.

  • What Jesus wants us to "desire" and subsequently "ask" for is that we 'bear much fruit' and that we would continuously be cleansed by the words of Christ.

We have been "asking" for the wrong things. The "whatever" that Jesus spoke of is the "whatever works" that are needed to be done that will 'glorify the Father in the Son'. We have taken this "whatever" completely out of context. This is why those things that we are "asking" for, are not being done for us; (1) they aren't "works" and (2) they bring no glory to the Father. Ask concerning theses things, and the word declares that Jesus will do these things.

Secondly, when Jesus says, "ask what you desire", our "desires" should be the "desire to bear fruit-much fruit" that God the Father will be glorified. Are the things that we "desire" glorifying God? If so "it shall be done for you", according to scripture, if not, they won't. At least not through Jesus. The word of the Lord is saying that if we "abide in Jesus and His word abide in us, then our desires will be the same as His, so He will have no issue or no choice but to do them for us".

 b In all things, Jesus is seeking to glorify His Father. And when we get to that place, we will start to ask for those things that will bring glory to the Father as well. Jesus is waiting for that day. This is "seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness".

***Let me be the first to repent, because I have been "asking" for many things, but none that would glorify my Heavenly Father. I have been taking this "asking" out of context ignorantly.

***Let us all ask that we might do the works that Jesus did and greater works and also that we might bear much fruit and be cleansed by the word that God Himself might be glorified in Jesus and in us.

in Jesus name, Amen.

Be Blessed. Be Perfect in One.
