Devo God confirms if it is Him
Mark 16:17-20 (NIV)
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 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.” 19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. 20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
Hebrews 2:3-4 (NIV)
3 how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.
2 Corinthians 12:12 (NIV)
12 I persevered in demonstrating among you the marks of a true apostle, including signs, wonders and miracles.
I have heard many a good sermon in my life, but is it good or God? About anyone can be trained to preach and teach scripture, but is it God or man.? All teaching needs to be approved by it’s lining up to God’s word, but it also needs to be confirmed by signs and wonders following. I have people tell me they don’t agree with this preacher or that, ask where are their signs? God confirms His word and calling with both scripture and signs and wonders. Not counterfeit signs, but true miracles. There was an old commercial where a elderly lady goes in a restaurant and yells: “Where’s the beef?” She wanted what was real. Well I ask where’s the Spirit, anointing, signs and wonders? Where’s the goods? There will be evidence if it is God.
