Not too long ago, I read a powerful statement that I absolutely HAVE, HAVE, HAVE to share with you. It comes from Healing Rays, a book written back in 1932 by the Welch minister George Jeffreys. For those unfamiliar with this great man of God, Jeffreys (1889-1962) _
* Founded one of the first Pentecostal organizations in the United Kingdom, the great Elim Pentecostal Church.
* Traveled with his brother Stephen throughout England and Ireland ministering and demonstrating God’s healings and miracles in conventions, churches, and camps.
* Was used of God just days before his death to pass on his mantle to launch the ministry of a 22-year-old Reinhard Bonnke.
I’m so thankful that I discovered the following teaching in Jeffreys’ book. It shows God’s unequivocal YES to demonstrating His power TODAY. Here’s the statement.
“The command and promises of Mark 16:15-18 most certainly apply to the
whole dispensation of the Holy Ghost. There was no geographical boundary
to limit its activities – “Go ye into all the world.” There was no distinction
to hinder its message – “Preach the Gospel to every creature.” There was
no cessation of the miraculous signs – “These signs shall follow them that believe.”
There was no change in the authority behind the commission – “In My Name.”
~ George Jeffreys “Healing Rays”
