Ambassadors to all
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
After upbraiding them for lack of faith, he gives them a commission. Go, as you go into all the world, preach the gospel to every creature. Some are teaching that God has chosen his people, so we do not need to go out and preach. This is a lie, that we need not go out and preach, for Jesus commands that we go out and preach to every soul, not to just those chosen, for who knows who they are unless they preach to them?
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
Rom 10:16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Rom 10:18 But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
2 Cor 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drinkany deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
First, you must be born-again and have the Holy Spirit of God. We do not tempt God by handling snakes and drinking poison, yet if serving him, obeying him through the Spirit of God these things can occur. Casting out devils in Jesus' name, speaking in new tongues, as in Acts chapter two. Paul was bitten by a serpent as he was in God's will and was not harmed.
Acts 28:3 And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
Acts 28:4 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
Acts 28:5 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
Acts 28:6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.
In strange lands, we bless what we are given to eat and God keeps us from what may have been harmful or sickening to us. They shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. This requires faith and the presence of God. It is not of the flesh or of man's power. The flesh must be humbled before God and we are to be moved by the Holy Spirit.
Mat 17:18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
Mat 17:19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
