A Blank Cheque From Jesus To You

 

During a private discussion with His Disciples, Jesus Christ specifically said to them, “If you ask Me anything in My name [as My representative], I will do it” John 14:14 AMP.

This sounds like a blank cheque from Jesus to you as well!

    This is one passage that has slipped to some dangerous and false doctrines, particularly here in the US. Is this really a “blank check”? Not so sure. The whole paragraph…
    12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask me[e] anything in my name, I will do it.
    It speaks of doing works…like the ones He was doing. It seems to me this is more about doing the works He has for us rather than about a general “blank check”, After all, Jesus is not a dispensing machine or a genie.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. Your perspective is that it has more to do with “works” than being a blank cheque? Does that mean it has nothing to do with prayer, asking and receiving?

        Well, yes, it does. However, it seems that some have drawn it out to be as if God is a free candy dispenser. So, there must be a place where we accept the fact that He is there, ready to answer vs. being a dispenser of our whims. I just don’t see Him indulging us in our every desire.

          I agree with you that God is not obligated to indulge our every desire. One, being who we are, not all our desires are right and two, not all are in accordance with His will.

          It is wrong for anyone to expect that God will be bound by his or her inordinate expectations. But it is okay to think that if we ask anything according to His will, He will grant it to us. We don’t command God; He calls the shots and we are at His mercies, every time.

    I understand Victor what the Nehemiah Project shared and it is confirmed in other Scriptures as we can see below, if we are right with God He hears our Prayers and The Holy Spirit leads us in our Prayers so that we Pray according to God’s Will.

    Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should Pray for as we ought but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And He that searcheth the Hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit because He maketh intercession for the Saints according to the Will of God.

    Jude 1: 20 But ye beloved building up yourselves on your most Holy Faith, Praying in the Holy Ghost.

    Yes we are to pray in The Spirit and in Truth, Jesus said we do not have because we do not ask or we ask for selfish reasons but when it is in the heart of God, He hears and answers us always. To pray in Jesus’s Name is to also Pray in obedience, God tells us He does not listen to the prayers of those who Sin accept for repentance, in this His mercy overflows.

    James 4:3 Ye ask and receive not because ye ask amiss that ye may consume [it] upon your lusts.(KJV)

    John 14:13-15 And whatsoever ye shall ask in My Name that will I do that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in My Name, I will do it, if ye Love me keep my Commandments.

    Psalm 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not Sinners but if any Man be a Worshipper of God and doeth His will him He heareth

    Psalm 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my Heart The Lord will not hear me but verily God hath heard me; He hath attended to the voice of my Prayer. Blessed be God which hath not turned away my Prayer nor His Mercy from me.

    This is why we are to Pray with the empowering of The Holy Spirit and not our Carnal Flesh, which we are to put to death as Romans8 and other Scriptures confirm and we do this as we Aim to be Perfected in Love just as Paul did, yes he battled with his Carnal flesh Romans7& 2Corinthians12:9 but he was Victorious in the end and so he would receive The Crown of Righteousness.

    Ephesians 6:17-19 And take the Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God, Praying always with all Prayer and Supplication in The Spirit and Watching thereunto with all Perseverance and Supplication for all Saints.

    Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.

      Thank you Anne for the contribution. I read the Scriptures you cited ànd I could see that they said something about prayer. Although, as you pointed out, we should pray by the Spirit not by carnal desire.

      Doesn’t that support the fact if one walks according to the will of God, one can ask whatever he wills as Jesus said to do?

          Yes Anne. And I think that’s where the emphasis lays. We ask God for things in prayer, but we must ask according to His will. Regards.

    At the mention of the name of Jesus, everything bows, everything that has a name whether living things or non-living things, whether powers or principalities, even all sicknesses. Everything hearkens to the name of Jesus!
