MATHEW 5:1-14 v1 Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the country of Gaderenes. v2 and when he came out of the boat.immediately there they met a MAN OUT OF THE TOMBS..A MAN WITH UNCLEAN SPIRIT,who had been DWELLING among the the TOMB and no one could bind him,even with CHAINS. THE devil did 6 things in this man’s life. after taking him HOSTAGE. He didn’t have mercy even after doing all kinds of torture. He does the following: 1.REMOVES THE IDENTITY. I believe that the man had an official name. like Sam, Peter that was given to him by parents. Instead he made this man nameless. That’s what anyone possessed gets reduced to. This man had no name. He was being referred to as A MAN WITH UNCLEAN SPIRIT. That’s how he was. 2.REMOVES TITLE from king to madman. The guy was now known as a madman. Either he was a leader. 3.ISOLATES the man who had relatives, parents was now staying away from home in tomb..no longer did they value him as their blood relatives.but an outcast.continued. 4.SEPARATES FAMILY MEMBERS The devil created a separation in that guys family. The brothers and parents were not feeling any sympathy for. They looked at him to rather be dead than alive. 5.TORMENTS.After doing all these still the devil wasn’t satisfied.it was not enough.the man was in pain.living in cold,eating nothing,cutting himself with stones.verses 5.he had been crying.but when he saw Jesus,the evil spirit started begging. Because the king of kings had arrived.he who is lord over enemies.verses 8-14. Jeremiah 17.7 blessed is the man who trusts in the lord.
After service I was invited to the house for prayers. The family had requested and needed prayer. I found out that they were in a desperate condition. There house was leaking from the roof, it was grass thatched. They also had 6 children who were lacking school fees. My fear is if they don’t go to school, they might fall prey to early pregnancies and marriage. May God provide for them.
