Here comes another one of those answers that you will not hear...but I will
hope that you will take time to read this.  It has taken me years and years
of reading the bible to get a fuller picture of what is being said...it
is
not just a well written novel. I hold so much truth it is beyond
us all...but the answer is that I have learned the full context and how
Jesus speaks to his disciples...Wild ass guess???  nope.  Years
of loving His word....

And I know that that scripture does in no way mean dancing with snakes and
drinking jugs of cyanide.

What it does mean is that the true Christian will be supernaturally
protected as he serves the Lord.

... By all means, let's not confuse ourselves with the facts!
