Let's consider the meaning of Mark 16:17-18 (KJV). 












  • Jesus, the apostles, and other disciples cast out demons (devils) often.  And, the need to cast out demons is possibly or arguably greater today.

  • Speaking with tongues, both in personal prayer life and for the purpose of giving interpretation before others are important gifts for operating in the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • Taking up serpents has nothing to do with handling snakes.  It's all about standing up to demonic strongholds, the head of which is that old serpent (the devil, or Satan).

  • Protection against drinking any deadly thing applies to poisons in our environment, regardless of how they are placed there.

  • Healing the sick - there is something about laying on of hands appropriately and in faith.  We do this and see results.  Amen


And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they

  1. cast out devils;

  2. they shall speak with new tongues;

  3. They shall take up serpents; and

  4. if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;

  5. they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
