Mark 5:9-13 (KJ2000) ” 9 And he asked him, What is your name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. 10 And he begged him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11 Now there was there near unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the demons begged him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (there were about two thousand;) and were drowned in the sea.”
Why did the devils rather be put in pigs and die than be sent out of the country?
Is the geographic place more important to them?
Is the promised land more important to us?
What does taking back land mean? Or praying for a geographic region. Or securing my home.
Mark 5:36 (KJ2000) ” 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he said unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. ”
Mark 5:28-34 (KJ2000) ” 28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29 And immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that disease. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that power had gone out of him, turned about in the crowd, and said, Who touched my clothes? 31 And his disciples said unto him, You see the multitude thronging you, and you say, Who touched me? 32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said unto her, Daughter, your faith has made you whole; go in peace, and be whole of your disease.
Mark 5:8 (KJ2000) ” 8 For he had said unto him, Come out of the man, you unclean spirit. ”
How am I supposed to know if it is an unclean spirit or someone’s lack of faith that is causing the problem? I need to listen. i do not know. Jesus does though.
Just look at the 3 words spoken:
First Jesus speaks ” Come out of the man you unclean spirit.”
Then the woman with blood, “If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole.”
Then Jesus to Jarius, “Be not afraid, only believe.”
Finally a culmination in the raising of the little girl. As we all will be raised on the last day and how we are all being raised now from the dead.
Dead is evil spirits and dead is sin. They are similar and both evil.
Mark 5:22-24 (KJ2000) ” 22 And, behold, there came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lies at the point of death: I pray you, come and lay your hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. 24 And Jesus went with him; and many people followed him, and thronged him.”
Seek Jesus for an answer. Seek Jesus for Healing. Seek Jesus for deliverance.
Seek Jesus for resurrection.
Life and eternal life.
