Jesus Confronts Demons
Lessons from the Demoniac
Demon possession leads to nasty living.
Morally and Physically.
Multiple demons can posses a single man.
Demons seek to destroy the Image of God in us.
Demons are terrified of Jesus.
2 reminders: Demons don’t always present themselves as evil spirits. 2 Corinthians 14-15 tells us that Satan can appear as an angel of light and his servants as servants of righteousness.”
We can be evil and nasty all by ourselves.
Legion - 6000 soldiers 120 Horsemen plus technical personnel
Jesus orders the demons out.
Demons Submit to Jesus
The demons could only do what Jesus allowed them to do
They couldn’t even flee.
They were forced to stay and endure the confrontation with Jesus.
The demons were forced into submission to the words of Jesus.
We see more than just a casting out of Demons.
Jesus also miraculously restored the demon possessed man.
We see not just a man freed of demons, but a man who has had the Image of God restored within him.
It doesn’t take demon possession to distort the Image of God in us.
Our sin does a pretty good job of that on its own.
Widening Scope of The Gospel
In Jesus’ words we see the first hint in the New Testament that the gospel is for Gentiles too.
It wasn’t time for the gospel to be fully proclaimed to the gentiles yet.
Jesus had come first for the Jews.
We end this story though with a man who’s life had been radically changed by Jesus going and proclaiming to a gentile people the hope and healing and renewal that can be found in the Lord Jesus Christ.
