Signs of a True Believer – Casting out Demons

Jesus said in Mark 16:17. These signs shall follow those who believe. In my name, they shall cast out demons.

The Kingdom of God manifests through the casting out of demons. If demons stay inside, so does sin, and that is bad news.

Jesus said: "But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you." (Matthew 12:28)

The Kingdom of God is the place where Jesus is King. While sin reigns in the heart and life, it isn't the Kingdom of God.

If you never cast out demons, perhaps you should question whether you really believe the whole gospel. 

And if you don't believe the gospel, please don't carry on as if you have got your act together and are so much wiser than others. You may be puffed up with head knowledge, but you still need to go into the school of Christ and learn the fundamentals.

    Judas cast out devils, it is not the sign of a “true believer”. A kingdom divided against itself will fall, Satan’s kingdom will fall. A house divided against itself will fall. Jesus has MANY requirments for His followers, the greatest requirement is to love the Lord your God with your whole being, and all that it entails, which is A LOT.

      to cast out demons?

       

      I'm not saying that casting out demons is the be-all-and-end-all of Christian discipleship.

       

      But the BIBLE says: "these signs will follow those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons".

      Just because it doesn't say: "all who cast out demons are true believers" doesn't mean it doesn't say or mean anything!

        scripture is known but not believed. You know that you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, good, but don’t neglect to love God with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind as well. Luke 10:27 What I have to say bears repeating, since you are attempting to bring others to your conclusion about me. I never said that if you love God with all your heart, you will be unable to cast out demons. You came up with that conclusion on your own.
        Matthew 7:22-23 -On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’
