And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. Luke 4:33-35
It’s pretty interesting, at the beginning of Jesus ministry, when he had yet revealed to people that He is the Christ, the demons already knew! Notice the title they referred to Jesus “The Holy One of God” this is a Messianic reference (Psalm 16:10) The demons knew that Jesus is the Son of God and he had the power and authority to destroy them, that’s why they begged Christ to leave them alone
Notice also , when Jesus commanded the demons, they were in subjection to Him. Its not because the demons wanted to comply to Christ or they followed him, its because they had no choice! Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16) Every knee will bow to Jesus and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord (Philippians 2) When are people going to realize this, Jesus is Lord of All
Additionally this is a demonstration or display of the New Covenant, the power of Christ being revealed. Never before did anyone exorcise demons or have authority over them, only Jesus Christ! This is why the New Covenant, is a Better Covenant, a more powerful Covenant, through Jesus Christ!
And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out. And the fame of him went out into every place of the country round about. Luke 4:36-37
Never before, did anyone ever see anything like this, the demons were in submission to Christ! Jesus spoke with power and authority, almost like he was the living Word of God (John1) , because He is! And quickly the fame and gospel of Christ spread everywhere, God’s kingdom was coming here on Earth
The kingdom of darkness is now defeated, Jesus crushed the head of Satan at the cross! Time is running out, for Satan and his demons, and all those who havent received Christ as your Lord and Savior! The New Covenant is here, The Christ has come to bring us salvation!
Every knee will now and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, even the demons will bow, even Satan will bow, everyone will bow to the Lord Jesus Amen!
