Why don't we see the scripture mentioned below actually happening?. (Jesus speaking)


Mar 16:17-18 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 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."

    Agree,how many times must the Word say "be not afraid" "don't be afraid" before people actually do what the word says? Believers are doers of the word not head nodding amen speaking do nothings.

    Paul had the proverbial "thorn in the flesh" up unto death. To say that he was not healed means the Lord was done with such gifts denies the reality of believers' experience. Perhaps, the Lord did not intend Paul's healing for His own reasons.

    So is this meant only for Peter, John and the other Apostles, or is it for those who believe?

    Are "Pentecostals" the only ones that believe? What of the 84% of America that claim to be believers in Christ are they all Pentecostals?
