Greater Things Shall You See

Apostle Grace Lubega

John 1:47-50(KJV); Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. 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.

Access to the spirit realm can either be by the light of God or the “light” of the devil (2 Corinthians 11:14).

Sadly, we are living in a dispensation where some Christians are too gullible to tell the difference between these lights.

Not everyone who sees in the spirit does so by the light of God.

Even on our pulpits today, there are men who see by a false light and so God calls upon us to have the wisdom to tell the difference.

Our theme scripture explains a vital aspect of the true light (John 1:9) by which we must see.

Christ, being God in flesh, had full access to the spirit world and there are many things he could see.

Regardless of this, there was a difference between what he saw and the importance he attached to some of the things he saw.

For example, when he saw Nathaniel under a fig tree, he told him as much.

But when this kind of vision excited Nathaniel and formed a basis for his faith in the Messiah, he, [Jesus] was quick to “undermine” the importance that Nathaniel had given it.

He asked, “You’ve become a believer simply because I say I saw you one day sitting under the fig tree?”(John 1:50 MSG).

The point here was that it was shallow for Nathaniel to attach his faith to the fact that Jesus had seen him under a tree.

Even a man operating under the false light can see some of these things.

BUT there are things a man operating by the false light cannot see, because they are too deep by virtue of the altar (Hebrews 13:10).

These very things are what the Christ calls “the greater things” we must see.

The language Jesus uses is not “more things” [that would mean similar things of the same category like he had just seen] but it is “greater things.”

Lust [carnal desire to simply see in the spirit with no sense of divine purpose] is non-existent in a man whose genuine desire is to see greater things.

In fact, it is no mistake that Christ here is addressing a man [Nathaniel] in whom he admits there is no guile because guile in itself is a form of inner deception that provokes lust [and not genuine desire] for spiritual vision.

So you must ask the question, “What are the greater things in God?”

In the greater light, men walk the unsearchable places in God (Jeremiah 33:3 NIV), men see the blue prints of divine purpose, men see God face to face (Exodus 33:11). Praise Him!

FURTHER STUDY: Matthew 6:23, 2 Corinthians 11:14


In greater light, men walk the unsearchable places in God, men see the blue prints of divine purpose, men see God face to face.

PRAYER: My great God I thank you for spiritual vision. By this word, my eyes are opened to see greater things in you. Even as I behold in the spirit, I see the things that align me to divine purpose, that launch me deeper in the knowledge of you and that defines the true substance of eternal life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
