MARK CHAPTER 16 VERSES 14-18 The Great Commission 14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 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.” I was wondering, if Christ said that he who believes that he has risen would be able to: #1) In his name cast out demons #2) Speak new Tongues #3) Take up serpents and even if we would drink anything deadly it wont hurt us. #4) Lay hands on the sick and they will recover. Of course we have to have the Faith in Christ and believe in him for this to occur. But why do so many believe that healings are not for today. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. If he said that we could pray for the sick and they would be healed. Why do some think it wont happen today? Also, many say that speaking in Tongues is not biblical but he says that we will speak in new Tongues. What Tongues is he talking about? Casting out demons..... now and days if we see a Pastor rebuking demons, many call him crazy or too radical. What about that? Just a few things I was interested in. God Bless to everyone!!!
