Israel’s Great Commission, Part 6

Miraculous Signs

These signs shall follow them who believe (Mark 16:17).

Again, the words of the “Great Commission” are unmistakable. Signs would follow the Jewish believers. It is not that they could follow them, but that they “shall.”

The Bible is explicit in its teaching that miraculous signs were for Israel.

The Jews require a sign (I Corinthians 1:22).

The signs belonged to Israel and their land.

We see not our signs (Psalms 74:9).

… for signs and for wonders in Israel(Isaiah 8:18).

References to signs in the Scriptures are always found in a Jewish setting. The first mention of miraculous signs should give any student of the Scripture a clear message of its relationship to Israel (Exodus 4:8).

The “Great Commission” had water baptism as a requirement for salvation with miraculous signs following. This is exactly what happened in Acts chapter 2 and in the early part of the Acts period.
