(31-37) Jesus Heals a Man with an Unclean Demon
How did this demon and other unclean spirits know who Jesus the Christ was? It was not only because of the words He spoke, it was also because of the life He lived. Jesus lived a righteous life and the spirit of God was on Him. He was Light; they were darkness. The demons could not help but be afraid.
(38-41) Jesus Heals Many
Jesus the Christ rebuked demons and stopped them from speaking about Him because He did not want them to be the ones to testify about Him. God has commissioned us (true believers and followers of Him) to tell about the works and words of His Son. It is our duty to testify of who Jesus is – the Son of God!
