The Weight-Carrying Capacity. by 


Bill Johnson. Dreaming With God.

Jesus couldn’t teach His disciples all that was in His heart. He ached to give them more, but didn’t because the weightiness of His words would crush them.

I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now (John 16:12 NASB).

Their “weight-carrying capacity” was insufficient for what Jesus had to say. When God speaks, He creates. The realities created from what Jesus would have liked to declare were far too significant for them. And the realms of glory released over their lives would require a strength and stability that they did not yet possess.

While it’s true that God does not give His glory to another, we’re not another – we are members of His Body. The ability to carry more has to do with both character and faith. Character enables us to receive glorious promises of destiny without taking the glory to ourselves. And greater faith responds to the declarations with the great courage needed for fulfillment.

The Holy Spirit was given to prepare them for revelation at a whole new level. He would take them where Jesus couldn’t. Perhaps this is part of the reason Jesus said, “It is to your advantage that I go…” The indwelling Holy Spirit enables us to bear more of the revelation of Jesus than was possible for the original twelve disciples.

But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you (John 16:13-15 NASB).

    When I scroll this image up and down on my laptop, my eyes go funny. Perhaps, in a way, it’s a little like what Jesus said. Our perceptions and our pre-conceptions could not take in all that Jesus longed to tell us.
