2. Does Jesus have all power?
Jesus came and spake unto them, saying ,all power is given unto me in heaven and earth (Matt 28:18).
3. Did Jesus assign us to do his works
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these(John 14;12-14).I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (John 9;4).
4.Who has all power?
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. (Matthew 28:18-20).
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth (Acts 1;8).
5.What authority have we do carry out his mission?
Behold, I give
unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19).
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come (John 16;13).
6.What specific power have we?

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. (Matthew 10:8).
8.If we have his power to carry out his mission then surely we must do it in his name?
nd when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this? (Acts 4:7). And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. (Acts 4:33).
9. Is faith required by the sick
Thy people shall willing in the day of thy power (Psalm 110:3)
10. Can the believer who trust in the name of Jesus heal the sick?
Then he had called unto him his twelve disciples he gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out and to heal all manner of sicknesses and all manner of disease (Matt 10:1) (Mark 6;7)
11. Can the believer work the works of God too?
I must work the works of him that sent me
, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. (John 9;4). Wist ye not that I must be about my faiths business (Luke 2;49)


I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work (JOHN 9:4).

Jesus always had a certain dialogue that always indicated that he and the father were one. ‘I say only what he says,’ ‘I do only what he tells me.’ ‘I say to you, a son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he sees his father doing’ (John 5;19). For I have not spoken on my own authority: the Father who sent me has commanded me what to say and what to speak (John 12;49).
What thirty three-year old would even talk like this after all for all men have freedom to say what they want and do what they want, when they want, yes Jesus talked like a son even though he was a man, always, and it’s in this that we have a unique discovery, that even as a man he was still the ‘Everlasting Father.’ for if Jesus had lived until he was eighty or ninety (as a man) he still would have had used this ‘child’s talk.’ indeed throughout his life.
Secondly we see the oneness of God here at work that will never been seen in the human world, Some objectors to the oneness of God teaching witll use the illustrationof a three membered family to point out how aman and a woman can be one Of coursem my response to this, It does not matter how ‘one’ a man is with his wife he will never be at this point or could claim to be at this point where he would be saying ‘I only say what my wife tells me.’ Further enforcing the point that oneness cannot exist as a triune being with any other being, oneness can only exist in one’s own soul in a man being one with God. Further oneness is a God thing between natures not persons.
Jesus came to do the works of God and indeed no man can do the works of God unless he has his Spirit and his nature,
Matthew 28 gives us another key “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. No ‘man’ has power in heaven and earth. Yet Jesus as a man said he had power in heaven and earth. NO MAN has power in heaven and earth yet Jesus has power over all men for he said that the disciples were to teach all men and baptise them into his name. Proof again that it was God himself who made these commandments and that Jesus was and is indeed God alone
