“They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16:18 KJV
Why are you afraid to lay hands? Who told you they won’t recover? Jesus said you should lay hands. He didn’t say you are the one that is doing the healing. Just lay hands by faith! But when we see somebody who is sick, the last thing we do is lay hands. We tried other things first, then we now fall back on laying hands. When the first thing we should do is to lay hands. Beloved, you can lay hands on the sick and the sick will recover.
According to Mark 16:19: “So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven and sat on the right hand of God” (Mark 16:19 KJV) He has finished! He is sitting down! He is the head of the Church! We are His Body. So for Him to move, He has to move through us now. Jesus has finished His own part. The next move is yours! Stop looking unto God to move. The next move is yours.
Now, let’s look at the next verse to see how it works. “And they went forth and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.” (Mark 16:20 KJV) They went forth and preached everywhere, both in the market and in the office. Anywhere they saw human beings they preached and the Lord was working with them. The Lord was working. Their own part was to preach because the Word is supernatural. God’s Word is Spirit and life. And as they were preaching, the Lord of the Word came and started confirming what they were preaching, with signs following. They were not running after the signs. In other words, signs are following you every time, waiting for you to release the Word. You are carrying a dangerous weapon in your hands. There is power in the Word.
