Wesley's Notes for Mark 16:17


16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe - An eminent author sub - joins, That believe with that very faith mentioned in the preceding verse. (Though it is certain that a man may work miracles, and not have saving faith, #Matt 7:22|,23.) It was not one faith by which St. Paul was saved, another by which he wrought miracles. Even at this day in every believer faith has a latent miraculous power; (every effect of prayer being really miraculous;) although in many, both because of their own littleness of faith, and because the world is unworthy, that power is not exerted. Miracles, in the beginning, were helps to faith; now also they are the object of it. At Leonberg, in the memory of our fathers, a cripple that could hardly move with crutches, while the dean was preaching on this very text, was in a moment made whole. Shall follow - The word and faith must go before. In my name - By my authority committed to them. Raising the dead is not mentioned. So our Lord performed even more than he promised.


People's Bible Notes for Mark 16:17


Mr 16:17 These signs shall follow them that believe. It is generally held that this is a promise limited to the apostolic age and to a few of the disciples of that age. Perhaps the plural "them" does not have for its antecedent the singular "he" in Mr 16:16, but the plural "them" in Mr 16:14. If it does not, why is the number changed in Mr 16:15,16? The grammatical construction requires us to look to Mr 16:14 for the antecedent of "them" in Mr 16:17. In Mr 16:14 the apostles are "upbraided for their unbelief because they believed not them who had seen him after he had arisen". They are commended to go and tell the glad story, and assured that miraculous credentials shall be given to those of "them who believe" and tell the wonderful tidings. In my name shall they cast out demons, etc. See Mr 16:14-16 Ac 2:4 5:16 8:7 16:18 28:3.

    Suzanne: remember Job 13:15 'Though He slay me, yet will I trust him....he also shall be my salvation.' continue to trust in God for he says in Is.41 'Fear not for I am with thee, be not dismayed for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea I wil uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness'. Do not give up. He is with you. I am praying for you.

    Suzanne: If You Need Peace, Ask The Lord for His Help. When You Feel HIM Tugging on Your Heart Ask Forgiveness(John 6:44) He Will Wash You in His Blood(Revelation 1:5) You Will be Baptize with The Holy Ghost(Mark 1:8) If Anyone be in Christ, He is a New Creature---All Things Will Become New(2Corinthians 5:17)You Will be Changed. You will Know Impossible not to. Satan will not be Happy.
