Topic: In Christ, Signs Follow The Believer [TREM Devotional 15 February 2019]
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;” Mark 16:17 KJV
The scripture says clearly, that in the name of Jesus the believer has the power to cast out devils. Therefore no devil is bigger than Jesus. There is no power greater than the name of Jesus. He is bigger than the biggest. He is higher than the highest. And He is greater than the greatest. This God is supernatural and many times, His supernatural manifestations are so natural. And that is why people don’t believe it.
After Jesus had commissioned the Church to go into the world to preach the gospel, He declared that signs shall follow those that believe. Jesus did not say signs shall follow bishops, apostles, prophets, evangelists and pastors. He said signs shall follow those that believe. Are you a believer? Signs are meant to follow you. “In my name shall they cast out devils”. The beauty of it is that He didn’t say in your name. He said just have faith in my name. In other words, when I pray in the name of Jesus, He takes over and does the miracle.
“They shall speak with new tongues.” So if you are a New Testament believer and you are not praying in the prayer language of the Spirit, you are missing out in the grace of these last days. You are missing out in the prayer language of the Spirit. It is a language with which we cut off the devil. You don’t want to know the far-reaching effects of the prayer language of the Spirit. Praying in the Holy Ghost has far-reaching effects. There are things that you pray about today that will still be manifesting ten years after. And you would think that it is your brain.
