. . . In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues.
(Mark 16:1)
We need to know what our rights are. We need to know what belongs to us. Healing is our Gospel right. It is our redemptive right.

It is our family right, because we're in the family of God. Our right to healing, which was given to us in God's plan of redemption, has been invested in the authority of Jesus' Name. Jesus said, "...IN MY NAME shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues" (Mark 16:17).

God watches over His Word to perform it (Jer. 1:12). Mark 16:20 says, "And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and CONFIRMING THE WORD with signs following. Amen."

As we go forth to preach and teach, is the Lord with us? Someone might say, "Yes, He's working with us to save people." Well, thank God He is. But that's not what the Bible says.

It says that God works with us confirming the Word with signs following. What are the signs that follow? They are the signs Jesus was talking about in Mark chapter 16. They include casting out devils in His Name, speaking with new tongues, and taking up serpents (if you are accidentally bitten by a snake, it won't hurt you).

There is also another meaning of "taking up serpents." We see an example of this in Luke chapter 10 where we can read that Jesus appointed seventy disciples (see verses 1 through 20). Devils and demons were subject to them through the Name of Jesus. And devils and demons are subject to us in that Name.

The signs Jesus talked about in Mark 16 follow me! I can speak with new tongues. I can exercise authority over devils and demons. And I can lay hands on the sick, and they'll recover.
