'Jesus Heals the Possess"
It’s funny what you don’t find out at church. But, isn’t that what church is all about.
Last Sunday our pastor was talking about the Book of Luke. I thought I was dreaming
when he said that Mary Magdalene had been possess before she met Jesus.
Mark 16:9 (NIV)
[The earliest manuscripts and some other ancient witnesses do not have verses 9–20.]
9 When Jesus rose early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had driven seven demons.
Who would have ever thought! But it’s true. If it’s in the Bible... it’s must be true.
Luke 8:2 (NIV)
2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out;
So what happens when a spirit comes out of a person?
Matthew 12:43-44 (NIV)
43 “When an impure spirit comes out of a person, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. 44 Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order.
Jesus goes on to heal other demon possess people.
Matthew 8:16 (NIV)
16 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.
So if Jesus can do this for them, just think what he can do for you. It doesn’t matter what your problems are. All you have to do is tell Him about them.
