Mark - Demon Possessed

Demon Possessed

Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.

They had crossed the sea of Galilee, Jesus having calmed the storm by speaking to it. The disciples were sinful, in the presence of God the son, so close. in the same boat, safe but feeling unworthy. At last they are to the other side. Always crowds gathered to meet Jesus with their needs, but this time there was only one man.

Mark 5:2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
Mark 5:3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
Mark 5:4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.

Luke 8:27 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 in any house, but in the tombs.

Oh great, they were safe from the storm and now a naked mad man comes towards them, a hulk of a man with super strength, powered by devils. Jesus, you are needed for sure now.

Mark 5:5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

We have people today who cut themselves. According to this story it is because of the torment of devils. The cutter somehow feels release by punishing themselves with pain.

Mark 5:6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

This mad man worshipped Jesus? No, he spoke his name.

Mark 5:7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

These were the demons speaking. They knew the spirit world and they saw Jesus as he is. Why can't the skeptics who live such unclean lives see Jesus today? Jesus in person was before him, they knew and confessed that he is the Son of the most high God No, not a god, as Mormon's and Jehovah's witnesses say, the brother of satan, nor a self deceived human claiming to be God, that would not cause the demons to speak out. He was and is the true and holy living Son of God, the Father and Son are one Spirit. The spirit world knows the Spirit of God and they tremble.

We do not come against demons in the flesh.

Acts 19:14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so.
Acts 19:15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?
Acts 19:16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
