Scripture for Monday, August 29 (8/29)

Leave a comment

The scripture for today, August 29, is Matthew 8:29 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

CHANGES IN WORSHIP-COVER-KINDLE” ‘What do you want with us, Son of God?’ they shouted. ‘Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?’ “

If you are not familiar with this passage, these are the words of a demon. If you have ever studied demons in the Bible, you will find that they never tried to spook or scare people. They never made dishes rattle or lamps fall over.

All they did was cause physical problems during the lifetime of Jesus and his apostles. There is no evidence of demons doing this in the Old Testament before Jesus, nor after his apostles died, either in the Bible or in the writings of the apostolic fathers. It is as though the demons were loosed for a season so Jesus could show his power over them also ~ Ephesians 1:20-21.

Notice, demons never said bad things. If they talked at all, it was out of fear and honesty. James 2:19 says all demons believe in Jesus. In the book of Matthew, they knew who Jesus was. They called him the Son of God.
Jesus told them to be quiet. Why? He didn’t want evil beings telling people who he was; he wanted goodness to tell people who he was.

The movies have warped our understanding of demons. Let us search the scriptures to find out their true nature. Then we no longer have to guess. We can know.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: SOME PEOPLE SAY ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO BE SAVED IS BELIEVE JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD. BUT THE DEMONS BELIEVE THAT & THEY ARE NOT SAVED. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS?

#demons, #faith
