As Christians we are commanded to go to all nations. It is this commission that is making many Christians to move around doing missionary work and winning souls to the Kingdom of God. We are saved today because somebody shared the Gospel of Jesus Christ to us. We are therefore commissioned to go and preach the Gospel of Jesus to others. When you have received the Good News, you are supposed to share it.

As a child of God, you have authority to drive out evil spirits in the name of Jesus. You should walk in the authority of the name Jesus. Refuse to be in the company of evil spirits. Whenever you detect evil around you, you should act in the authority and the power in the name of Jesus.

It is said in verse 17 and 18 of Mark 16 that: “They will speak in new tongues, they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them.” You are given the power to speak in new tongues and the enemy will not hinder you. We are confronted with the serpents in our daily living, but we trample and destroy them, they are unable to destroy us.

We also heard what has been said happening literally in the case of Paul in Acts 28:3-6. Remember after the shipwreck, Paul was bitten by a viper and it fastened his hand, but he shook it off into the fire and suffered no harm. The people who saw it thought that he was evil. He escaped the sea and then the snake bit him. However, they were amazed because they were expecting him to die, but instead of dying, the snake could not destroy him, for he was a chosen servant of God.

As a true child of God, you will get into a situation where people say it is impossible for you to get out, but in the name of Jesus they shall see you going on with your life because of the name of Jesus that protects you and gives the strength to go on.

Some people might have prepared the fire for you and kindle it seven times saying that you will not come out; thinking that the fire is so hot it will consume you. They put you there and say there is no coming out. Then all of a sudden, they see you marching out the fire like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego (Daniel 3:19-25). In the name of Jesus, the deadly things shall not have the power to kill you.
