Demons Tremble

Seeing Jesus, he cried out and fell before Him, and said in a loud voice, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I beg You, do not torment me.” Luke 8:28

We live in a world full of fear, anxiety , and chaos. I had a couple coworkers at lunch tell me about how they were preparing for the “Zombie Apocalypse” and they were serious! This is what Satan does to you, he plays mind games. He uses TV shows, movies, and music to influence people into ungodly behavior

However look what happened when some demons ran into the Lord Jesus Christ. They begged him not to throw them into the Abyss (Hades). Now the demons identified themselves as “Legion” (Luke 8:30)meaning there was many of them. There might have been thousands of them dwelling in this one man, but they all feared the Lord Jesus Christ

Now there was a herd of many swine feeding there on the mountain; and the demons implored Him to permit them to enter the swine. And He gave them permission. Luke 8:32

The demons begged Jesus to let them enter a herd of pigs instead of going into Abyss. First thing notice the demons cant enter anyone or anything without permission. You will not become possessed by a demon by accident, however if you invite them in through Satanic practices they will enter. This is why its important to be careful what your listening to and watching

Second, why would Jesus allow them into a herd of Pigs? Well pigs in the Bible are considered unclean animals. This is symbolic for unclean “sinful” people, demons will enter those who reject Christ

And the demons came out of the man and entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and was drowned. Luke 8:33

Notice the fate of these pigs, why would Jesus allow them to drown? Again this is symbolic, if you ever read Revelation you know the fate of those who reject Jesus is the Lake of Fire. This is symbolic of eternal judgement, the unclean (sinful) were thrown into the Lake for judgement

“Return to your house and describe what great things God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him. Luke 8:39

Notice what Jesus says here “Tell everyone what God has done for you”, then the man tells everyone what Jesus has done for him. This is not an accident , Jesus is revealing his deity here as God in the flesh
