In Mark 16:17 the Lord Jesus said, "And these signs will follow those who believe..." As believers, we have tremendous power available to us. We were never created to be weak, beat down, barely getting along Christians. The Lord Jesus has given to us His Authority, His Word, and the right to use His Name so that we could live victorious and be overcomers in this world.
To walk in this power and to produce signs that show God's love and power to the world, we must become dedicated followers of Jesus. We must recognize that we were not saved just to go to heaven. We were saved for the purpose of becoming one with Jesus in both life and purpose. We are to enjoy His blessing in our life and we are to be His representatives to the world.
As believers, we are to take the Gospel of the Kingdom to the world as signs and wonders. God not only wants to produce signs in your life, He wants to make you a sign to the world.
It is our time to rise and become signs and wonders to our generation. Study this outline. Let these truths get into your heart and let the Lord make you a sign and a wonder.

We are for Signs and Wonders
I) Believers are to take the Gospel of the Kingdom to the world as signs and wonders.
A) Isaiah 8:18-19 (AMP)
v.18 - Believers are to be for signs and wonders for what is to take place.
v.19 - For the world to find its answers, it must come to God and not false religion or humanism. It is up to us to present God's answers to the world.
B) Matthew 24:13-14 - Jesus said the main sign for the end of age would be Believers full of passion, boldly proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom as signs and wonders to the world.
C) Matthew 9:35-38 - Jesus proclaimed and demonstrated the power of God's Kingdom.
v.35 - Jesus ministered as a sign to the world.
v.36 - Jesus saw the conditions of His day and was moved with compassion.
1) Mercy - Feels people's pain. Sympathizes with their problem.
2) Compassion - Lifts people out of their pain. Does something about their problem.
vv.36-38 - Compassion called for more workers to come to assist Jesus in bringing the people out of their defeated state and conditions.
D) Matthew 10:1-8 - Jesus set in motion His plan to bring Believers into His compassion to lift people out of their sin, poverty, destruction, and sickness.
vv.1,5,7-8 - Jesus called them, gave them power, sent them out, told them what to do
E) Two keys to becoming a sign and wonder.
1) Mark 3:13-15 - You must come to Jesus and give your life to Him.
v.13 - Jesus called them and they came to Him. He didn't force them to come.
a) Revelation 3:20 - Jesus knocks but we must let Him in.
vv.14-15 - Come to me, proceeds Go ye. Spending time with Jesus is what empowered them to go and be a sign to the world.
2) Mark 1:17 - You must become a follower of Jesus.
1) It's not just a one-time mountain top experience.
2) It's a lifetime dedication and commitment to following Jesus and living your life as a sign to others.

III John 2 says, "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." To live in victory and to experience success in this life we must renew our minds to the Word of God. You will never prosper beyond the level of revelation of God's Word that You personally know and do. Our success is not measured by what others know about God's Word or even about what others do. In Matthew 16 after Jesus asked the disciples what others were saying about Him, He point blank, in verse 15, asked, "But who do you say that I am?"
What we believe, say and do has a direct influence on what kind of life we will live. This is why we must cultivate the soil of our heart with the Word of God. The Bible teaches us that God's Word is seed. When we plant that seed into our hearts and minds it transforms us into Christ's image and anoints us to do His works.
I want to encourage you to study the notes I am providing and get the message to listen to. You can prosper, be successful and live in peace and well being even in difficult times as you act on God's Word.

Cultivating the Soil
I To Prosper We Must Learn and Apply the Laws of Prosperity
A) III John 2 - You will never prosper beyond the level of revelation you know and do.
1) II Corinthians 8:9 - It is God's Will to prosper you and bless you.
B) Genesis 1:11, 12, 27-29 - God gave man a ministry and the resources to get it done.
vv.11,12 - God formed the earth to continually produce an abundance of prosperity.
vv.27-29 - God created man, gave him a ministry and job to do. Then gave him access to all the vast resources of earth to use to get it done.
C) Genesis 8:22 - After the flood, God renews His covenant of blessing with man.
Seedtime and harvest, giving and receiving, are God's law of prosperity and provision for us.
1) Galatians 6:6-9 - Paul shows us the law of giving and receiving works in the Kingdom of God. What we sow, we will reap.
2) Philippians 4:15 - Believers entered into a partnership with Paul in giving and receiving. Every time we give, we should expect results.
D) II Corinthians 9:6-8 - Our two-fold purpose for giving.
1) v.6 - We give that blessings may come to someone. We enter into partnership with God to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
2) v.8 - We give to release God's grace, favor, and blessing of abundant provision into our lives.
II After We Sow Our Seed We Must Cultivate the Ground
A) Mark 4:26-29, 14-20 - (26-29) Once you sow, you take your attention off the seed and onto the ground.
1) vv. 14-20 - Jesus gives attention to types of ground. Once you obey God, protect your seed by cultivating your ground and not letting anything keep you from receiving.
Cultivating (Webster) - To prepare land for growing crops. To loosen soil and kill weeds.
1) Hebrews 6:8 - faith and patience; Hebrews 4:14 - Hold fast your confession.
B) Luke 13:6-8 - By cultivating your ground you can even receive fruit off of old seed that you neglected. Don't cut it down, speak the Word to it!
