And These Signs Will Follow

MELISSA—I was reading the Great Commission in Mark 16 recently and something jumped out at me that gave me more of an understanding of how the rules are changing.  “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:15-18.  “And these signs will follow those that believe” – Wait, I’ve been desperately praying for these things to manifest. This tells me that when I believe these signs follow. I don’t have to go searching for them. And “believing” is not about believing in signs.  We are meant to believe in the One Who beat death just prior to laying out this commission! Believing is about relationship with Jesus. Think about it, when Jesus walked the earth these signs were simply part of His nature. They flowed out of Him.  He only followed the rules of engagement of the Kingdom.  The spirit of the age had no hook in Him and He did not play by its rules.
