"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).
Dr. John Alexander Dowie (1847-1907) was used by God to reintroduce divine healing to the modern Church. Dr. P.C. Nelson, founder of Southwestern Assemblies of God College, said, "You can't follow Dowie's doctrine, but you can follow his faith."
I heard Dr. Nelson tell about how when he himself was a young Baptist minister, he saw Dowie minister to a woman with a purplish-blue cancerous growth that covered most of her face.
Nelson said, "I saw Dowie, in the presence of us six denominational ministers and three medical doctors, just reach out and take hold of that cancer, saying, 'In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ!' And then strip it off that woman's face.
The doctors present examined her immediately, and said the skin on her face was like the skin of a newborn baby."
The reason Jesus gave was so those who believe on Him would be able to do the works He did, because He did go unto His Father. It's because of Jesus' seating at the right hand of the Father on High in the place of authority that believers can do these same works.
Confession: I believe on Jesus. Because Jesus went to His Father and mine, and is seated at the right hand of Majesty on High, and I am seated with Him. I can do the works of my Father, in Jesus' Name.
