“These signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues…” - Mark 16:17
Jesus says certain signs follow believers, not the believers following signs. Signs point and direct in a certain direction, they show the way. Roads and highways are clearly marked to give direction so that people don’t get lost. Jesus says there are certain signs that follow a believer. They will do the same things that Jesus did. They will cast out demons and they will speak new languages.
These wonderful, supernatural signs are evidence that you are a believer. These miraculous signs do not follow an unbeliever. These signs are apparent in the lives of those who have decided to be like Jesus.
He exorcised evil spirits, casting them out with His words; He laid hands on the sick and they recovered. We, too, can do these same things because as believers we can lay our hands on the sick and cast out demons, in His name.
Speaking in a new language, which we have never learned, is the evidence that the Holy Spirit has come to live in us and, it is He, who gives us the inspiration and the words to speak.
This is a supernatural ability, given by the Holy Spirit, as an entrance into the realm of the supernatural life. By and through this gift we have the enabling of the Holy Spirit to pray in the spirit, receive supernatural guidance and dynamic anointing to do mighty things in Jesus name.
Dear heavenly Father thank You for the gift of the Holy Spirit and for those supernatural signs to follow me as a believer. Let me never take the glory from what You do through me.
