Driving out Demons

Luke 4:31-37

After the incident in Nazareth, Jesus moved on to Capernaum where once again people were amazed by His teaching. Luke gives us the reason for their amazement; it was the authority with which He taught. Of course many teachers teach authoritatively, but Jesus seems to have had an extra ingredient in His teaching, for all four gospel writers tell us that it was His authority that so amazed people. Apparently, being the Son of God is something that has a way of coming out without ever being mentioned, for it brings forth the authority of God, for who is a greater authority on the Word of God than the Living Word Himself?

On one occasion there was a man who was possessed by demons. The demons knew at once who Jesus was, and we know that from what they shouted through the stricken man:

“Go away! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” (4:34)

Jesus simply commanded that they come out of the man, and they immediately complied with His command, amazing the people even more than before. More importantly, the man was once again made spiritually whole through the words that came from His mouth; the Living Word in action. As His followers, we must come to recognize that it is the Living Word in us, through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that gives us our strength, not our cleverness and not our human strength, but God’s alone.

As one might expect, the news of this incident spread quickly throughout the region: What else could this Jesus do?

  1. I’ve often wondered if, when commanding demons or healing someone, did Jesus do so in the booming voice of today’s televangelists, or a soft commanding voice.

  2. I’ve performed and filmed a couple exorcisms and I enter the spiritual battlefield and I face these beings FEARLESSLY AND BOLDLY. If you at any moment have any doubts, fear, or give into your emotions especially when the demons bring up the deepest secrets you hold inside. They know exactly what button to push for you to loose your focus and weaken your command over them. They exploit any weakness they can find in you and can break a person down just enough to have a demon to attach to the exorcist. Once a demon is able to latch onto a person they begin to break down the person until they are in full control of the person. This can take years for the demon to get full contr of a person and sometimes a person has demons breaking them down for a lifetime but never manage to take full control of the person. Demons are parasites, they are very real and do not try to do exorcism without first being mentored and assisting in one first because demons will mentally and emotionally attack you unlike anyone has before. They will bring up past events in your life that would be impossible for the possessed person to know and if you lose yourself to anger or sadness you are done. Demons feed off the negative energy of our emotions and actions. They can sometimes be violent and will exhibit suer natural strength and endurance.

    In closing, the world changed on Dec 21st 2020…… the dawning of the age of Aquarius which is the principality of the air ie Lucifer. Have you heard of the new world order ie the great reset. The earth has been having astrological alignments not seen in 1000 to 2000+ years. The Mayan calendar which ended in 2012 was dated incorrectly because our calendar changed from the Julian calendar by the pope years ago, prior to this change all cultures followed the stars and the Mayan calendar actually ended in 2020 the end of the age. The world is experiencing major energy shifts and some ppl are elevating spiritually and consciously, some are becoming hyper intuitive, connected and a merging of dimensions is happening and ppl are now seeing spirits and hearing them when they didn’t before. Major shifts are taking place and it changed my life from a non practicing Christian to leaving a career to start a deliverance ministry after experiencing a blockbuster movie like event dealing with poltergeist, possession of the two family members, physically being attacked in my sleep, knives thrown by an unseen force at me, and even a few angelic encounters in my dreams. I have captured some of the most incredible photos and videos the past year and I’m going to begin uploading to my WordPress so check it out and I will be happy to answer any questions you hav or help if you need deliverance I will gladly help. God Bless and stay vigilant.
