After Jesus demonstrated how it is done, He passed the ball to his followers “And when He had called His twelve disciples to Him, He gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease.” (Matthew 10:1) “(He) gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:1-2) “After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also … “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy … the spirits are subject to you” (Luke 10:1-20) Just before leaving, Jesus gave The Great Commission to His followers “And Jesus came and spoke to them (His 11 disciples), saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations … teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ ” (Matthew 28:18-20) Note: disciples were to do such things as heal the sick, cast out demons, etc. Then Jesus said, “Do all of this only until the canon of Scripture is completed.” And His followers were obedient “And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people … And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women … sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.” (Acts 5:12-16) “And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:4) “… in mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem … I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.” (Romans 15:19) I was obedient to spread the gospel in this manner for 15 years overseas. How many years have you done so? … months? … weeks? … days? … hours? .
