I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. Mark 16:15-20 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poisen, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people and they will get well.” After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
These words are true today as well as in the past. Many people say that this is for the disciples when Jesus was here on the earth, however the words of Jesus are true and we cannot pick and choose what to believe in the Bible. Jesus clearly said that those who believe and are baptized will have these signs which include healing of the hands to make others well. The Lord is guiding me to these verses and the Holy Spirit has been showing me the Truth of these words. The words’ those who believe’, apply for yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Satan is trying to deceive the believers in Jesus by saying that this is only for the past. Rebuke Satan in the name of Jesus and then pray for the Holy Spirit of God to show you the Truth of these words for all disciples who choose to believe in the name of Jesus as their Lord and Savior. If you believe in the power of Jesus, then you will be able to heal the sick, drive out demons, speak in new tongues, and pick up snakes with your hands, as well as drink deadly poisen and not get hurt at all. Do not test the Lord by trying to prove it is true by purposefully drinking poisen because it is a sin against God and only shows your unbelief. This is meant for it to be shown only if someone does this to try to cause harm and it will hurt the true disciples of Jesus. Pray for the Holy Spirit to rid you of any unbelief about these signs and He is faithful to do it. Then God’s miracle in the name of Jesus will shine to those who witness these things. However, there are those who are blinded by Satan just like the Pharisees, Saducees, Scribes, and teachers of the law who refused to believe Jesus because of their hardened hearts and blindness from Satan. The Holy Spirit of God draws the believers whose hearts are ripe to believe, to see with the eyes of their hearts first the Truth of Jesus as the Messiah of the world followed by the mind and soul.
I am still growing and learning in God’s Word with the guidence of the Holy Spirit about this and do know that we must also believe the signs that accompany us, the believers who are baptized and saved, that we have been given the authority to do these things as we go on the Great Commission to tell others the gospel of Jesus and baptize them with water and fire which is in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Seek the Lord and He will show you this Truth and the words of Jesus are confirmed by the signs that we have within us by the power of the name of Jesus, it will be done for all those who believe. Praise the Lord for He is faithful and His Words are True! We are the hands that heal the sick and the feet to tell the gospel of Jesus so they may believe, be forgiven of their sins in Christ, and healed of their illness and ailments of kinds.
Good word My Sister, and the word and Spirit can never disagree. But always confirm one another. (John6:63)
So listen and keep writing Truth, and Keep seeking the Truth….And pointing the light of Truth into all the dark places. ;)
