God still heals, and confirms His servants

Mark 16:15-20

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They 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.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

When the word is preached through a man filled with the Spirit, signs always happen. If signs do not happen, the words have not been confirmed by God. That preacher is like a jangling bell, especially if the speaker does not believe that miracles and healing are for today. Jesus the same yesterday, today, and forever.

1 Corinthians 4:19-20

19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.

20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

Power. The same power that raised Jesus from the dead. The same power that healed all the people in the bible. The same power is available to us, if we believe.

John 14:11-13

11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Here are the instructions from Jesus to all believers. Preach the Gospel, heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons. Jesus did three things, He prayed, He preached, and he did signs and wonders. We should be the same. It never changed. It is for believers. It did not stop when the last apostle in the bible died. This is what being Christlike really is. Taking on His nature, His thoughts, His words, His actions. This is the Kingdom of God. Many preachers and teachers have failed when they prayed over someone. Instead of looking at themselves to find the weakness and then have success, they go to great lengths to explain why miracles should not happen. Doctors are wonderful, if you need to, go to one. But they are limited. God is not limited.
