“He Bowed Before Him”

Blessings folk!

Jesus arrives to the other side of the lake.
He is immediately approached by a man possessed of demons.

We continue…

Mar 5:5-7
Constantly, night and day, he was screaming among the tombs and in the mountains,
and gashing himself with stones.

Seeing Jesus from a distance, he ran up and bowed down before Him;

and shouting with a loud voice, he said, “What business do we have with each other, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I implore You by God, do not torment me!”

There are important truths to be seen here.

This man was tormented.
Running among the mountains and the tombs.
Gashing…cutting himself.
Such occurs today.

The demons were causing the man to respond this way.
We forget this.
It is not the man.
It is the demon.
When confronted with such, we must possess the love of the Lord for the individual and the power of the Lord to set the captive free…to command the demon to leave.

Again, love the person.
Deliver them from evil.

The man, empowered/led by the demons, ran to Jesus and bowed before Him
Not attack Him.
Not confront Him in the flesh.
Then, shouted with a loud voice.

The demons did not want to do this.
But, they knew Jesus.
They had been with Him in heaven.
Think on that.
Demons have been with the Lord Jesus before the Most High God!
They know!

They bowed before Him because they must.
They then demanded to know what business they had with Jesus at that time.
They acknowledged Jesus as the Son of the Most High God.
They requested to not be tormented.

They know that torment is coming.
They did not know if that time had arrived…it had not.
They know Who Jesus is.
Do we?
