Signs Will Follow Those That Believe!
17And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mark 16:17-18
Does reading the signs that shall follow believers, stir your heart to do the works of Jesus? Simply said, the casting out of devils, speaking in new tongues, the protection of God and seeing the sick healed should be signs and wonders that follow as we do the works of Jesus. Not because of who we are but because of who Jesus is. It is time to see the healing power of God flowing through those in the Kingdom of God. Believe the Lord for signs and wonders to follow you as it followed the disciples in the book of Acts.
What is it going to take for us to take God at His Word? We are told that except we become like little children we will not see the Kingdom of God. It is so simple for a child to believe their Father. Only believe. All things are possible if only you will believe God's Word.
These signs will follow not because of who we are but because of who Jesus is. So...we need not think we are anything or that we can do anything except allow Him to work through us to do the healing.
We see Elijah praying in faith for the widows son. He took him upstairs so that his faith could unite with the Lord and he was raised from the dead. It was so simple. It was miraculous. Sometimes man can complicate the simple things of God. Elijah could have said well I am sorry about your son or your sin has cause this but he responded to the situation with an act of faith that the Lord honored. Woman here is your son. Now she believed that He was a true prophet of God for she said, "Now by this I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is truth". Hallelujah! The world needs to see signs following Christ centered ministry. Before Jesus returns we are going to see great and mighty miracles. The dead will be raised, the lame will walk and blind eyes will see. All things are possible to those that believe!
Simply start to do the works of Jesus. Faith acts when the Lord says, "pray for this one". It starts often with just praying for one. You may say, what if I pray for someone and they are not healed. What happens when they are healed? The Lord will get the glory! The gospel of the Kingdom is so simple. All we need to do is hear the Lord and go and do what Jesus told us to do.
Believe the Lord at His Word. Like little children let us believe what Jesus said. Step out in faith, lay hands on the sick and see them recover. Glory to God!
