I am going to show you just how easy it is to become possessed by a demon, and discover one of the most infamous witches, the witch of Endor in this series. Witchcraft and demonic possession, exorcism of demons from people; people cutting themselves like we see today in the “Emo” craze. All of these things are spoken of in the Bible.
Jesus casts out 2,000 devils from one man at one time.
There was a man possessed by 2,000 demons. He had such incredible strength that no chains could hold him, nor any man. He lived in a graveyard . Here’s what happened as Jesus stepped out of a ship.
“And when he came out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 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.
And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cuttinghimself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, and cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him “Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.” And he asked him, “What is thy name?” And he answered saying, my name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.”
Now there was a herd of swine swine near the mountains that were feeding, and the devils asked Jesus to send them into the swine.
Jesus allowed this and directly the swine ran violently down the mountain and into the sea and drowned themselves. The Bible says there were about 2,000 spirits living in the man.
Even devils believe and tremble, the Bible says in James 2:19. This demon possessed man is proof of that. Look how he ran and worshipped Jesus. Take note of how miserable it made the swine, they became insane, and against all natural self preservation, they drowned themselves and died.
Satan only offers bondage and death!
Modern day “Emo”, and cutting oneself actually goes way way back.
As we read above, Jesus cast out 2,000 demons from a man who was so controlled by these evil spirits that he spent his time cutting himself with rocks.
Modern day ramifications of allowing ourselves, or our loved ones to dabble in the pleasures of Satan are seen through this new craze, “Emo” this and “Emo” that. Young girls cutting themselves and putting their lives in danger. Just as this man cut himself, we see it is connected with demonic indwelling of an individual. It is not all fun and games. Satan will take control of you if you give him opportunity. There is hope and life in Jesus Christ! “Call upon the Lord and you shall be saved.”
