Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in deepest gratitude:
“Just then a man in their synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out, ‘What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!’ ‘Be quiet!’ said Jesus sternly. ‘Come out of him!’ The evil spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.”
this is a lot to take in.
First, an observation:
If there were demon-possessed people in Your synagogue
there are probably demon-possessed people in today’s church.
This explains quite a bit.
Of course, a skeptic might object:
“This sounds like something lifted straight out of a Hollywood horror movie.”
A Bible scholar might respond:
“Actually, Hollywood lifted it straight out of the Bible.”
Most of all, I’m grateful for this awesome truth:
When You say “Get out!”
