Jesus said the following Mark 16:15-18 "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." These things don't follow the vast majority professing Christianity , does that means they are not believers?

Amen, Amen, Amen!
I like this verse, the use of words like believe, will do, I will do, all allow for growth on our part. We come to believe just like the chosen disciples. Some are further along with the coming. The "will do" allows for growth in faith.
Need I remind ALL, 1 MUST do as Scripture tells us to be "IN CHRIST"
to accomplish "these thgs!" That's why there are so many POWERLESS RELIGIONS becuz Religion (Satan) has deceived MOST on how to be "IN CHRIST!"
Do they believe in the Holy Spirit "leading & guiding," the New Cov (Grace & Truth), baptizing as the disciples did AFTER NC, The Gospel of Christ (Gal 1:6-9), ONE SPIRIT (I Cor 12) or do they believe there are 3 "Trinity?"
Can't get ANY "tw
The Chatholic church makes billions of dollars from the sick. Nothing from the chatholic church is for free, NOTHING.
gee . do none of them have bible and the ability to read?
Jesus didnt say "if they are taught". He said THESE SIGNS WILL FOLLOW. are they not responsible to know what professing Christianity obigates them to?
1stly Christianity is not an obligation, it's a relationship based upon grace. Let me flip the question, when last did you cast out a demon, heal a sick person or raise someone from the dead. Jesus always taught so they had faith to receive.
Not a good yard stick for believers, the referenced scripture may have been added. There where times that even Jesus couldn't or wouldn't heal, I don't question His faith. No one does this or it would be all over the news with thousands gathering.
We STUDY for we have our "TEACHER" (Jn 14:26;16:13; add/delete too) "if" we "WAITED" (Acts 1:4)! JESUS "could" heal but "UNBELIEF" prevented (Matt 13:58)! It should be "on the news," but not "newsworthy" to man - "I've witnessed personally!"
Hallelujah! Praise HIS "Holy Name!" I've also exp'd the POWER of the Holy Spirit healing thru me, one being anointed w/Holy Spirit by my obeying & laying hands on him, demons came out (this wk)! Not to mention "my healings!"
BELIEVE & REC
His Blood and the Name will never lose the power.
Amen! Thank you JESUS! Praise Your Holy Name!
"Thus time after time, we only obediently do as the Spirit leads,"
This is the bottom line, we are all different, yet the spirit that leads is constant. Your faith may allow the greater works in Christ. Your faith may build mine.
Rich: It is BELIEVING on HIS WORD that increases "FAITH!" GOD uses "man" to remind us of what HE HAS SAID! U then, have to "become as a little child" STUDY, PRAYING & asking for REVELATION fm the Holy Spirit. "Search the Scriptures" (Acts 17:11)
Precisely, Rich Kelley as "the Spirit leads"; we do walk in the spirit, then suddenly we hear that small voice talking to us, we hear and without hesitation - act to the glory of the King. If we miss to obey, He doesn't come back till next time
"IF" there is a "next time!"
Remember: "TODAY" if you hear HIS voice, harden not your heart..." (Heb 3:15)!
LORD, have mercy!
