“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.” Mark 16:17,18
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ! God has given us authority over enemy to drive demons. Our Lord Jesus has conquered sin and death. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. Our faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5:4,5
We can see that the disciples returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.” He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:17-20
God has given the authority only to his disciples, what is the meaning of disciple? One who believes in God and love him wholeheartedly, the one who obey God’s commandments in love by walking in Spirit. God called you and me to be His disciple. Word of God says, submit to God and resist devil for he will flee. Who will obey God? One who love Him, yes the disciple of Lord Jesus Christ, the children of God. Amen! God bless you!
