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.
There is no expiration date on the words of Mark 16:17-18.
God is calling you to humble yourself as a little child [Matthew 18:1-4] and to raise your expectations in Him [Ephesians 3:20] to believe those very miracles will follow you too when done in Jesus’ name. God is so good, He doesn’t even expect us to go without help with our faith. Our Lord Jesus counted this as a most worthy prayer, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24), and in answer to this father’s plea for help with his faith, Jesus immediately healed his son from seizures, torment, and muteness.
The enemy has plotted, planned, and worked to deceive even those in the church that healing is not for today. But what does the Word of God say? Let’s look to His Holy, eternal, living Word not to what man-made, side doctrines outside of the Word of God say.
All believers can be vessels of God for miracles to heal the sick in Jesus’ name [Mark 16:17-18; Matthew 10:7-8]. If you’ve accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, that’s YOU! Only believe [Mark 5:36].
You (and all believers) are intended to do greater works than Jesus did and still does by the power of the Holy Spirit working in you.
This is for the glory of God and to demonstrate to the world that Jesus is truly the Son of God and the only way to be reconciled to the Father [John 14:11-13; Ephesian 3:20-21; 2 Corinthians 5:17-19].
You are a co-worker with Jesus [1 Corinthians 3:9] who came to destroy the works of the devil [1 John 3:8]. As Jesus’ co-worker, it’s also your ‘job’, through praying and using the authority He gave you in His name, to subdue the earth [Genesis 1:28] and destroy the works of the devil, heal the sick, raise the dead, and set the captives free [Isaiah 61:1-3].
When instructing His disciples, Jesus repeatedly paired the preaching of the gospel for salvation with the healing of the sick [Luke 9:1-2 and 6; Matthew 10:7-8; Luke 10:9]. His instructions were and still are for us to carry out in fulfillment of His Word [Isaiah 61:1-3] as we are His disciples.
Autism and various neuroimmune disorders such as PANDAS, PANS, and AE (autoimmune encephalitis), etc. incurable? Impossible cases? A lifetime affliction? Must last for years? Only according to man’s report. But what does God say? “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” [Matthew 19:26].
