I asked myself what is significant about
them not being one.
emphasized to me that evil comes in many forms and Satan uses his evil
spirits to do the dirty work. However, evil spirits cannot stand before
Jesus or handle Jesus. They are powerless before Jesus. This is evident
by two points:
Whenever the evil spirits saw Jesus, they fell
down before Jesus!
evil spirits could not stand the sight of Jesus. They were so powerless
before Jesus that they fell down before Jesus. This is so amazing. Not
only that but they do something else that is more significant which is
evidenced by point 2.
Whenever the evil spirits saw Jesus, they cried
out to Jesus saying, “You are the Son of God.
evil spirits who were sent to do Satan’s dirty work fell down before
Jesus and cried out to Jesus saying, “You are the
Son of God.” This is amazing and radical. I say that because lots
of human beings even do not fall down and cry acknowledging Jesus to be
the Son of God. They go on living their own lives how they wish. The
evil spirits whatever their power was in the realm of evil, they could
not stand before the presence of Jesus but had to acknowledge who Jesus
I asked myself how Jesus responds?
“But he gave them strict orders not to
tell who he was.”
found it very significant what Jesus did when He gave them strict orders
not to tell who he was. First, of all it tells us that Jesus can order
and command evil spirits and they become powerless before Him. This is
awesome and great!
Also, I believe Jesus did not want the evil spirits to testify on his
behalf letting people know who he was. First of all the personification
of evil in a person’s life will never be a good testimony when they talk
about Jesus. If a person’s life is filled with evil then they definitely
cannot be a good testimony when they talk about Jesus. It is good to
know that Jesus can order evil spirits too and they have to listen to
Him. Also, Jesus had His timing for everything. He did not want evil to
let people know who He was but wanted to reveal it in His timing and not
let the people hear it from the evil spirits.
saw important implications for my own life. Evil spirits no matter what
form they take cannot stand Jesus. Instead, they fall down before Jesus
and cry acknowledging Jesus and His power. This means when I have the
power of the Lord residing in my heart and life, evil spirits cannot
touch me. Instead, they will fall down in the Name of Jesus! With Jesus
on my side, the evil spirits will have to hide. The key is having Jesus
in my life and allowing the power of the Holy Spirit to work in me and
I ask you now dear friend, what has evil
done to you?
friend, evil can come in many forms and it can do all kinds of damage.
Satan is expert at sending his demons and evil spirits to do his dirty
work. They become successful and powerful in people’s lives who are not
covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ. When they are on their own, evil
will pervade their lives in many forms. This is how evil spirits work.
But there is Good News and the Good News is Jesus Christ, my friend. We
see in the Word of God that the evil spirits could not stand the sight
of Jesus but fell down and cried before Jesus. This is so powerful.
Jesus even gave them strict orders. I learned in the previous chapters
that Jesus even gives orders to evil spirits and they obey Him.
matter what evil has done to you or you are faced with, you can be
delivered. I know you can! Yes, you can friend! Jesus Christ is His Name
and to save you and me, He came. His blood will cleanse you where you
are and give you the best antidote to protect you from the enemy. In
Heavenly armor you can enter the land, for the battle belongs to the
Lord. No weapon formed against you will stand, for the battle belongs to
to Jesus whatever you are faced with and know you can command evil to
get away from you and it will have to because of Jesus who resides in
you as you acknowledge you are a sinner and need the grace of Jesus
Christ to save you and bring you deliverance. When you do that, you will
have a new hope! Yes, you will and you can! Don’t let the enemy steal
your joy for the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy but Jesus has
come to give life in all its fullness for you!
you know even when evil visits invading land, evil will one day be
completely vanquished when Jesus Christ comes back to run the show here
on earth! May you know that until that day the battle still belongs to
the Lord and you can fight evil with Jesus on your side! Amen!
“Evil Visits Invading Lands!”/”What
has evil done to you?”
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you so much for your love and for showing us that
evil spirits cannot stand the sight of you. Instead, they fell down and
cried before you acknowledging you are the Son of God. We are so sorry
for our sin! Lord we ask you to please forgive us as we fall down before
you with our heart, mind, soul, and strength. We acknowledge we are
sinners and need your grace to save us and deliver us from the enemy.
Help us please Jesus. Come into our heart and make our heart your home.
Live in us Jesus and help us to live for you and serve you the rest of
the days of our lives. We live in a world of evil and need your
protection to fight evil. We need you Lord and know that there will come
a time when all evil will be vanquished. Until then help us to stand
with you Jesus and remember the battle belongs to you Lord as we enter
the land. Thank you that no weapon formed against us will prosper when
we have you! When we know you no matter what happens here on earth, we
can be with you! Thank you Jesus. Thank you for your help and that you
have heard our prayer and answered it! In Your Name I Pray Jesus! Amen!
If you would like to invite Jesus
Christ into your heart and make Him a daily part of your life, you can
this very moment. You will never be alone. You can claim God's promises
for you in the Bible and see them come true, before your eyes, in His
wonderful timing. You don't have to wait for a special time to come to
the Lord. You can come right now as you pray this prayer, meaning it in
Prayer: Dear Jesus, I am a sinner Lord.
I am so sorry for my sins. I confess my sins to you. I confess the wrong
things I have done and messed up my own life. I need you Lord right now
and in the years to come. I have gone my own way and have not found what
only you can give me. You alone have the words of Eternal Life. You
alone love me unconditionally for who I am. Thank you Jesus! I turn
myself to you Oh Lord in this Fall of October 2005. Please forgive me of
all my sins and come into my heart. I accept
you Jesus into my heart. Thanks Jesus for coming into my heart. Thanks
for forgiving me of all my sins. Thanks for giving me a new identity in
you. I acknowledge you as my Lord and Personal Savior as I believe in my
heart that you died and came back to life to save me now and forever. I
give myself to you and ask you to be in control of my life. Fill me with
the Holy Spirit. Thank you
Jesus in the coming days we can do things together. Thanks for being my
Lord and Personal Savior. Thank you Jesus you have heard my prayer and
answered me. Thanks Jesus for changing me and helping me through life's
storms and winds. Thank you Father God for Jesus Christ who you sent for
us! In Your Name I Pray Jesus! Amen!
Friend, you may feel something
or you may not but this you can be assured that the Lord Jesus has come
into your life and will give you a new beginning! Amen!
