There are many benefits that believers in Christ enjoy as part of their heritage in God’s kingdom, some of which are the supernatural things outlined in today’s Bible reading.

Sadly, these benefits elude some people who believe in Christ today! Why is this so? A thorough examination of Mark 16:16-18 will reveal the answer.

The first key to unlocking these miraculous signs is that you must have been baptized into Jesus Christ. What does this mean? It means that you must have accepted Christ into your life by believing Him with your heart and confessing so with your mouth.

Also, you must have identified yourself as belonging to His camp, and most importantly, you must have formed a union with Him that has produced a permanent change in your life.

That is what it means to be baptized into Christ. It goes beyond merely accepting Him as Lord and Saviour on a superficial level. Speaking on this, the Holy Spirit says in Galathians 3:27:

“For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

To be baptised into Christ is to put on Jesus Christ as a garment. A person is identified by his or her clothing. If you claim to be baptised into Christ, has it left a permanent change in you?

When people take note of you, do they identify you with the person of Jesus Christ? The disciples were noted to have been with Jesus without them voicing it out. Is it so with you (Acts 4:13)?

The next key to unlocking the manifestation of miraculous signs is having faith in the power in the Name of Jesus and using it (Act 3:16). Some people have invented other names to call upon, whereas the Name of Jesus Christ is the only one recognised and obeyed in heaven and hell (Acts 4:10, Philippians 2:9-11).

In addition, Jesus said that believers shall speak with new tongues. Today, some people don’t believe that believers can still speak with new tongues after being baptised in the Holy Spirit.

They believe that the days of speaking in tongues are over, and so they don’t even bother to seek the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Such people short-change themselves of the power of God that they need to overcome his devil and his agents, and easily all prey to the challenges of these perilous times.

If only they had believed, not only would they enjoy divine healing and divine health, they would also have been agent of divine healing. However, all of these benefits are lost to unbelief! Beloved of God, one can be in church for many years and still remain an unbeliever.

As the old English adage goes, “The hood does not make the priest.”

I therefore encourage you to be a practical believer today, and all those signs listed in Mark 16:16-18 shall your option in Jesus’ Name.

OPEN HEAVEN 11 JULY 2019 ACTION POINT:
Beloved, have you been baptist into Christ? Do you believe and use the power in the Name of Jesus? Have you appropriated the power of praying in the Holy Ghost? Examine yourself today.
