Rebuke Evil

Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,saying, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are– the Holy One of God!” Mark 1:23-24

Jesus entered the synagogue (Jewish place of worship) and there was a man possessed with a demons. Make note of this, we don’t usually think of demons being active in holy places such as churches, however as we see, demons are everywhere!

However the demons immediately recognize who Jesus is, “The Holy One of God” and they trembled as they said “Have you come to destroy us?” Even these demons recognizes the power and position of our Lord Jesus Christ, do you understand who Jesus is?

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”  Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. Mark 1:25-26

Jesus had no fear of these demons or their evil and rebuked them immediately. And at his command they were cast out, understand the power that we poses through Jesus Christ. As you walk through the valley of death, we can Fear No Evil (Psalm 23)because we are victorious through Jesus Christ!

Whatever evil Satan and his demons are tormenting you with today, don’t fear them, REBUKE them in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen!

Stay Alert!

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8

Do you wonder why bad things always seem to happen to you? Does it seem like the same addictions and diseases keep coming back for you? This is no coincidence, see Satan is looking to devour you. We are in a spiritual warfare, our struggle is not against the flesh but against the evil forces of this world (Ephesians 6) those evil forces are Satan and his demons looking to destroy you

You might say I don’t believe in that spiritual stuff, well Jesus spent most of his ministry casting out demons (Matthew 4, Luke 11, Matthew 8, Mark1, Luke 4) If you deny the existence of Satan and demons, then your denying the Word of God and Jesus ministry.

Jesus said The Thief (Satan) comes to steal, kill, and destroy. But Jesus came to give us life ( John 10:10) How does Satan accomplish his goal? Simple he sets up traps and snares that lead us off our path of righteousness. You give in the the temporary temptations of the flesh but lose your eternal soul. What does it profit to gain the whole world and lose your mortal soul ( Matthew 16:26)

So what can we do, be strong in The Lord, put on the full armor of God (Ephesians 6) Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7) use your Weapons of Warfare (2 Corinthians 10:4) in Jesus Name Amen

Casting Out Demons

And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode inany house, but in the tombs. Luke 8:27

Jesus spent a good part of his ministry casting out demons, but how many churches today teach or even mention this? Why are our churches disabling Christians by not teaching them about the Spiritual Warfare we are all facing?

Yes its easier to pretend Satan and demons don’t exist; but know this they influence our world greater than you can imagine. Unless you acknowledge this and prepare yourself with the Armor of God, you are vulnerable also.

When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not. Luke 8:28

Demons tremble at the mention of Jesus, because there is power in his name. When your covered with the blood of Christ, you are protected. However leaving yourself open and vulnerable you can be overcome by evil.

(For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.) Luke 8:29

Jesus was giving all authority by God the Father, he sits at his right hand and on the throne. There is no power in hell that can overcome Jesus, if your under attack call out his name and he will set you free.

And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.8:30-31

A couple of things learned here, first this man is not just possessed with one demon but multiple demons. Second they identify themselves as Legion, because there are a group of them. Third they beg Jesus not to send them to hell

There’s a lot to learn from this story, For our struggle is not against flesh but against the powers of the dark world (Ephesians 6:12) Don’t be left vulnerable, accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior today, by his blood you are redeemed and protected Amen
