Mark 16:17-18

Mark 16:17-18 - And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.

If Jesus said these things will accompany those who believe, why do we not see them more in the church today? Why do we not see the sick healed, demons cast out, or even speaking in new tongues? We have the Spirit of God in us, why are we not seeing the signs that are “supposed” to come with it? There are many different ways people try to explain this away.
Some say that this was a “bible” thing. That it was something that the disciples could do, but once they all left the earth, so did the miracles. Others say that God only selects a few to carry out His miracles on earth. These are both misconceptions. They are excuses to explain away why we can’t see these things in our lives. That is human nature. We don’t see them in our lives, so we try to point the finger at something else, instead of looking at ourselves.
Jesus said that if you believe you will have these signs accompany you. He puts no limits on it. All it takes is Faith. If you are not seeing these things in your life it’s time to start looking at yourself. Stop pointing fingers elsewhere and start working on your faith. The bible says, “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God”. Get in the Word, that’s where we should begin. Saturate yourself with the Truth and Power of God's Word. Then pray. Pray and ask God to help your unbelief. These signs will accompany you, you just have to believe it amd let God's power flow through you.
