Series:Against the Dark   Passages: Matthew 8:28-34    Teacher: Delmar Peet
We have the wrong Idea about demons
  • People who think too much about demons
  • People who don’t like to think about demons.
  • Demons exist, we need to be informed, by they are not the main thing
They were Created
They were angels
They want to keep you from taking a next step from Jesus
Matthew 8:28
And when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gad-ar-enes, two demon-possessed men met him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way.
Jesus leans into His creation. 
Matthew 8:29-31
And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O
Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before
the time?” Now a herd of many pigs was feeding at some distance from them. And the demons begged him, saying, “If you cast us out, send us away into the herd of pigs.”
1. Knowledgeable faith
Matthew 8:32-33
And he said to them, “Go.” So they came out and went into the pigs, and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the waters. The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, especially what had happened to the demon-possessed men.
Matthew 8:34 - 9:1 
And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their region. And getting into a boat he crossed over and came to his own city.
2. Misplaced Faith
Mark 5:18 
As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him.
3. Saving Faith
Mark 5:19-20 
And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled.
