Why do the Signs Not follow Most of those Professing to be Ministers of The Gospel?


Scripture tell us that these signs WILL follow (all) those who believe and are baptized. Why do we not see these signs following the majority of those professing to be ministers? Or most Christians? Mark 16: 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." NKJV

    I would agree and add a couple. Some are not even born again and many are hirelings, AT any rate NONE of these mentioned have any business "leading" or teaching God's flock. That is why the church has no power these days. Powerless ministry.

    Yes, They definately do not follow anyone that is not baptized in the Holy Spirit. And not many of them actually have signs following all the time.

    No that won't work. I have met a lot of the big boys in that false doctrine and they dont follow them either.
