The demon bowed before the Lord.
The demon then cried out with a loud voice.
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!”
Why cry out?
Yes, the demons knew Who Jesus was…Son of the Most High God.
But, what “set them off”?
The Word tells us…
For He had been saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”
Jesus had been commanding the spirit to come out.
Something interesting here.
The spirit was resisting.
The spirit was “putting up a fight”.
The spirit demanded to know “why?”, “now?”.
I find great hope here.
Too often, we think that if we command in the name of the Lord it must be done.
True, if we do so in faith as led by the Spirit the Lord will make it so.
Still, we expect instantaneous.
The Lord is more “process”.
Of course, man then wants to systematize the ways of the Lord.
We will see that tomorrow.
For today, do as the Lord leads.
He desires to use us in setting the captive…demonic!…free.
