Works Than These
Address given at Colombo, Ceylon. 1926
I want all you people to have a good time, all to be at
ease, all to be without pain, I want all to be free.
There is a man here with great pain in
his head, I am going to lay my hands on him in the name
of Jesus and he shall tell you what God has done, I believe
that would be the right thing to do, before I begin to preach
to you, to help this poor man so that he shall enjoy the
meeting like us, without any pain.
(The man referred to was in pain with his
head wrapped up in a bandage, and after be was prayed for
testified that he had no pain.)
I want you all to be in a place where we
receive much blessing from God. It is not possible for any
of you to go out with pain, if you would only believe God,
the Word of God if you receive it tonight, it is life, it
gives deliverance to every captive. I want to preach the
Word tonight so that all the people will know, you will
go with a knowledge of the deliverance of God.
I want everyone to receive a blessing at
the commencement of the meeting, no one person need to live
out of the plan of God. If you have pain in your knee if
you believe when you stand up as sure as you are there you
will be free. I believe the Word of God. God has promised
if we will believe we can have whatsoever we ask.
We want you to have it changed. The present
tense tunes are better than future tense tunes. If you get
a full salvation you will have a present tense tune. It
is a good thing to be able to hope for sometimes…
but it is a better thing to have it.
I used to hope and trust I would be baptised
in the Holy Ghost, but, when I spoke in Tongues, no! when
He spoke, then I knew I was baptised. Before, I used to
hope it would be so. You cannot move a fact by an argument,
when you get baptized in the Holy Ghost the Spirit speaks
through you, then you know it is done-You Know the Comforter
has come. Has He come to you? Has the Comforter come to
You must have Him, you must be filled with
the Spirit, you must have an over- flowing, because Jesus
says, after you have received the Holy Ghost ye shall have
Power. We want you to have power.
Let us look at the Scriptures. Verily,
verily I say that whatsoever you ask the Father in my name,
I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask anything in my name I will do it –
I WILL DO IT, who says it? JESUS, that blessed Jesus, that
lovely Jesus, that incarnation from heaven, that blessed
Son of God. How He wants to bless, how He saves to the uttermost,
no one spoke like He spoke. How ? Come unto me all ye that
are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. Hear
what Jesus says - I come not into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through me might be saved. How
beautiful. Jesus wants us alt to be saved. Did you ever
look at Him in His sympathy. Just take a vision of Him on
Mount Olives and looking over Jerusalem weeping and saying
Oh Jerusalem, Oh Jerusalem how often would I have gathered
thee, and you would not. Shall it not be said of the people
in Colombo, in Ceylon. How often would I have gathered thee
as a hen gathered the chickens under her wings, and you
would not. Will you. Hear what He said. WHATSOEVER YE SHALL
ASK IN MY NAME I WILL DO IT. What do you want, how much
do you want, do you want anything. Are you thirsty, are
you hungry, Come unto me all that thirst and I will give
you water of life, Are you hungry, he that eateth the flesh
and drinketh the blood of the Son of man shall live for
Do you want to live forever. Jesus who
saves to the uttermost, He heals, He helps all that come
How many are coming for healing? How many
for salvation? Listen - Whatsoever ye ask in my name I will
do it, the Word of the living God, The Son of God. How beautifully
God speaks of Him - This is my beloved Son, and yet He gave
Himself for us, He gave Himself as ransom for us, Amen.
How many are going to receive Him? Take
the Water of Life freely. You may say, how can I take Him.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved.
What is it to believe. He that heareth my Word and believeth
on Him that sent me hath everlasting life.
Who are the people that followed Jesus
– they that love Him in their hearts. Do you love
Him in your hearts. From this day if you do love Him you
will begin to hate all kinds of sin and you will love all
kinds of righteousness, that is the secret. The man that
says he loves God and loves the world – he is a liar.
God says the truth is not in him. If a man loves the world
the love of the Father is not in him, and you can tell tonight
whether you love God or not. Do you love the world, then
the love of the father is not in you. If you hate the world,
then the love of the Lord Jesus is in you. Hallelujah.
I want to make you love Him. Is He worth
loving? What has He done? He bought salvation, He died to
deliver, The wages of sin is death. The gift of God is eternal
I leave it with you. will you love Him,
will you serve Him. Will you. He knows it He understands.
There's no one that loves me like Jesus,
There's no one that knows me like Him,
Be knows all your sickness He knows all your sickness
There's no one that knows me like Him.
That's what He says. COME UNTO ME. He knows
you are needy.
I want you to be blessed now, I find I
get blessed as I ask, in the street, everywhere. If you
find me in the street or anywhere, if I am alone I shall
be talking to God, I make it my business to talk to God
all the time If I wake in the night I make it my business
to pray and that’s the reason I believe that God keeps
me right, always right, always ready. I believe that God
the Holy Ghost keeps us living in communion with God.
I want you to begin now, begin talking
Jesus was the way and the truth, and therefore all that
Jesus said was true. Jesus said truly, truly, if you believe
greater works than these shall ye do because I go to the
father. Has He gone? If I told you earthly things and left
them - now I tell you heavenly things. The son of man is
down, the son of man is up. The greatest and one of the
deepest truths possible for the believer.
Do you see this Electric Light. That light
is receiving power from the dynamo, it has a receiver and
transmitter. The power house may be a mile or two away,
the wires that are conveying the current to and from are
covered. Where you are getting the light is bare wire, the
juice is passing through the bare wire and gives you the
To bring it to you to night to understand
the life in Christ. Jesus sends the light, and life through,
and it illuminates the life then returns and just as you
are holy inside, the revelation of God is made manifest
and the life becomes full of illumination. My life is from
Him, my life receives back to Him, and I am kept by the
life of God.
I touch them and instantly they change.
The Life of the Son of God goes through and passes on. I
live by the faith of the Son of God.
He that believeth on Me - he that believeth.
The devils believe and tremble. People follow Scripture
as if it had nothing to do with it. The Scripture may be
Life or letter. My spirit - my Word - what is the Word.
It is spirit and life giving when we believe. What is believing,
Believing is the asking of the divine life that God gives
to Him. Who desires. Everyone in this place can have Divine
We do not believe in baptismal regeneration.
You cannot be saved by riches. Jesus says ye must be born
again... The new birth comes through faith in the Lord Jesus
Christ, and you can be saved in the field as well as in
a church. It is the heart, when the heart desires after
righteousness, God makes Himself known, so we want you to
be saved by the Blood tonight. Someone says I want to be
saved.. Shall I bring you to the Word, he that asketh receiveth,
who says - Jesus says, he that asks receives.
If I ask Him to receive me
Will He say me nay,
Not till earth and not till heaven
Salvation is of the Lord. No man can save
you, no man can heal you. If any one has been healed in
these meetings it is the Lord that has healed them.
I would not take it under any circumstances
that I can heal anybody, but I believe His Word - He that
believeth on me greater works than these shall he do because
I go to my Father. He is lovely, Lovely Jesus.
He knows it all, He knows it all,
My Father knows it all,
The bitter tears how fast they fall,
He knows, my Father knows it all.
Is not He lovely, if You get saved tonight
you will have another song
He knows it all, He knows it all,
My father knows it all
The joy that comes that overflows
He knows, my Father knows it all.
Before I was baptised in the Holy Ghost,
there were many songs I used to sing as they were written.
God began a change; and He changed many songs. I believe
God wants to change the Song in your heart.
He changed this song for me.
This is how it is sung,
Oh then it will be glory for me
It will be glory for me.
But God changed it,
Oh it is now Glory for me.
It is now glory for me,
As now by His grace I can look on His face,
Now it is glory, Glory for me.
