Sermon of the week

The healing of the demoniac.

"1 and they came to the other side of the sea, to the land of Gadara.
2 when Jesus got out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
3 who had his dwelling in the tombs, and no one could bind him even with chains,
4 because many times he was bound in fetters and chains, but he tore the chains apart and smash the fetters, and no one was to tame it;
5 and always, night and day, in the mountains and in the tombs, he would cry out and cut himself with stones;
6 when he saw Jesus from afar, he came and bowed to him,
7 and he cried out in a loud voice, and said, what is It to you, Jesus, the Son of God the most high? I adjure Thee by God, torment me not!
8 For Jesus had said to him: go forth, spirit unclean, out of the man.
9 and asked him, what is your name? And he answered, ' my name is Legion, for we are many.
10 And he begged Him that he would not send them away out of the country.
11 and there was a great herd of pigs at the mountain.
12 and all the devils besought Him, saying, send us into pigs, that we may enter into them.
13 and immediately Jesus allowed them. And the unclean spirits went out and entered into the pigs; and the herd from the steepness of the sea rushed, and there were about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.
14 they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city and in the villages. And the villagers went out to see what happened.
15 they Come to Jesus, and they see that the demoniac that the Legion was in, setting and dressed, and in his right mind; and they were afraid.
16 and they that Saw told them how it happened with the demoniac and about the pigs.
17 And they began to pray Him to depart out of their coasts.
18 and when He came into the boat, the man begged him to be with him.
19 but Jesus did not permit him, but said: go home to your own and tell them what the Lord has done to you and how he has pardoned you.
20 And he went and began to preach in ten degrees, what Jesus had done with him; and all were astonished."  RTOs.5: 1-20.
  Christ made an interesting healing in the country of Gadara.  For us, it is instructive in its examples and images.  I propose to analyze the situation.
  First of all, the coffins where the possessed man lived.  Then coffins were made caves for burial, where the dead were buried.  The possessed person is the person in whom the devilish spirits have settled.  In no case can be confused with those mentally ill people, which is not the same.
  The evangelists Luke, Mark and Matthew describe this story, but Matthew's talking about two possessed, not one, like Mark and Luke.  So was there one or two people?
  The answer, I think, is quite simple.  Of course, it was about one, but there was also a second.  And, apparently, the same or close in their condition.  We read that the person in question in our context was very strong, he was breaking chains and breaking chains.  In addition to the demonic, he needed physical strength.  What could he eat?  And where did he get the food?  After some investigation the conclusion is that, presumably, the second person, being in a similar state, but, apparently, in a lighter form and fed him.  And not afraid.  Of course, this is only a guess, but it explains why Matthew wrote not about one, but about two.
  But back to our text.  Obsession can only be "earned" through sin, which has its own name.   Behind every sin there is a demon who cannot enter a person by himself, he needs an excuse.  And here, I think, you have to have the right idea about sin, and especially about how through which lawlessness can "get acquainted" with the devil.  It's gonna be hard to break up.
  Obsession can be both in an easy form, in the form of influence on a person, on his mental state, mood, worldview; and in the form of direct possession of it, depriving that own will.
  I read in a secular newspaper such a story: there were two girlfriends, led a fairly dissolute life, often changed friends.  And then, one day, after another binge the night when all were asleep, one of the girls stood up, went to the kitchen, took a knife, went to the bed where she lay her friend and began to strike her blows with a knife.  Kill at once.  Subsequently, she was asked why she did it?  There may be jealousy or some other reason, there may be debt or resentment.  No, it didn't happen, she just said:  I don't know...I didn't.  Something beyond her will began to act through her. She met the devil through the sins she committed.
  There are many examples of people using "services" of diviners, vorohaev, predictors, non-traditional healers, were linked with the demons, or rather those possessed man.  It is interesting that in many cases people do not even know about this neighborhood.  It is manifested only in some special situations.  Such people are unable to read the Bible (I see some contradiction, or simply do not understand the Scripture), they're believers, but churches also.  Many blame all their problems on the Creator, and do not understand that they are the problem and their problem is in themselves.
  Communication with the occult is especially dangerous for a person.  The devil catches people's intellectual curiosity, stupidity and lack of understanding of the seriousness of the consequences.    Often such a "product" is served in the form of some kind of joke or game.  Halloween stuff, horoscopes...  I admit, it's a little scary to see on TV psychics, predictors of all kinds.  I am afraid that because of the misunderstanding of the consequences of sin and the multiplication of lawlessness, the world is slowly beginning to go crazy EN masse.  Each in its own way.
  Look at what is happening in Europe and the whole world.  Same-sex marriage isn't crazy?  But, these same-sex, they are also aggressive.  Once God had already severely punished the two cities for such a Sodom and Gomorrah.  For some reason, people do not want to learn from mistakes.
  And religious madness?  These fanatics are willing to kill their own kind for what?  And at the same time believe: the more "soak", the better.  And they are convinced that they will go to heaven.  How?  Breaking the commandments of God, "do not kill"?  This commandment "do not kill" makes sense: do not kill an innocent.  Isn't this all madness?  The world is definitely going crazy.  Why?  Because of lawlessness.  "And, because of the multiplication of iniquity, love will cool in many; but he who endures to the end will be saved." Mf.24: 12-13.
  Obsession does not always manifest itself in an open form and so it can be even more dangerous. And it is more dangerous if one does not know of the presence of the demon living in it.  He, for the time being, does not show himself particularly.  The condition is very dangerous.
  By the way, it is necessary to distinguish mental illness from obsession.  The symptoms may be similar, but they are not the same.
  In our text, we see that the man took the devils, so much so that they did with him what they wanted.  And every devil, which are sins, has its name. " What is your name? "  Christ asked.  Why is it important?  And because, knowing the name of sin, you can get rid of it.  It's like a medical diagnosis, knowing the cause, you can treat the disease.
  The problem of people is that many do not know their "diseases" or do not want to know them.  Sin and do not understand what they are doing.  As the disease, if not treated, she, passing into the chronic form, captures and oppresses man.
  Sin should be called by name, and by confessing it in prayer before Jesus, be cleansed of it.  This is the process of spiritual purification, a process of utmost importance for a believer and one who wants to have peace with God and live his commandments.
  That man had a Legion of demons that knew when they saw Jesus that they had to go out.
But now, surprisingly, they are asked to enter somehow into the swine and, most interestingly, Christ immediately allowed them to do it. "Jesus immediately allowed them."
  Again question:  why?  Did he feel sorry for them?  Of course not.  The unclean spirits are cunning, they asked what they knew they would get permission for.
  Under the law of Moses, pigs were considered unclean animals. They could not be not to eat or to use them, but also to breed, too.  " Do not wish to your neighbor what you do not wish for yourself."
  However, the inhabitants of that place did it.  It was probably their business.  By transferring to our lives, for example, drug trafficking.
  The devils knew this well, for all that is unclean belongs to them.  And they have a right to it.   And they can have access to people, to society, to the Church only through impurity, through sin.   Therefore, it is important for the devil that people sin, and not confess before God.  Disbelief, by the way, is the most favorable environment for this.  Ignorance of the law and not wanting to know it does not give liberation from it.
  If I jump from the roof of the house, ignoring the physical laws, the law of gravity will still work, regardless of my desire.  In the spiritual world everything is the same.  People can ignore them, but they'll still work.
  Demons asked to enter the pigs.  They had every right to do so.  Jesus let them do it.
  Once in the pigs, they rushed off a cliff and the animals, of course, died.  But the demons had their way, they remained on earth as the worst place for them was the abyss.
   What is abyss?  And why don't they want to get to this place?  Hard to say.  Perhaps it's something terrible that even demonic spirits are afraid to be there.
  The locals saw what had happened and were horrified.  First of all, they saw the power and authority of Christ in the spiritual realm.  But, on the other hand, they had to realize their material loss.  Because their goods cost good money.
  And there was an alternative: either to be with Christ, but to give up sinful, from the point of view of the law of Moses, business, or to continue their activities, but without Christ.
  Vol... make a choice.  They did not want to listen to him, but preferred to get rid of him as soon as possible.
  It is interesting, but many people go through similar tests: either to be with Jesus, but will have to lose something, or Vice versa, to do dirty work, to earn good money, but to live without Christ.  Unfortunately, many choose the latter.  It is better to have a good life here on earth with all the unrighteousness and impurity, but without God; than to be a Christian, but one has to give up the sinful.  " Many are called, but few are chosen." LK.14: 24.
  The Lord checks all people, but not all notice such checks, but will see only consequences.
   And the last thing in the description of the amazing healing, the Man was already in his right mind, and he made the right choice;  he wanted to go after Jesus.  " And when he got into the boat, the man begged him to be with him."  God chose him for a reason.  But, unlike many other miracles that Jesus did when he said:..."don't tell anyone,"  he says here..."go home to your people and tell them what the Lord has done to you and how he has pardoned you."
  And then, "And he went and began to preach in ten degrees, what Jesus had done to him; and all marveled. "  Christ swam across the sea to make a preacher out of that man.  And who was chosen?  In our opinion, the most worthless, sinner, not worthy.  But it is surprising that God looks not like us, not what we are in society, how much money we have, what we have connections and how we look, but what we have inside, in our heart, in the center of our spirit.  This is our nature: " most of all stored else, guard your heart, for out of it are the issues of life" PR.4:23.
  God is never wrong.  The person who was healed also received an assignment from Jesus and was a witness of Christ, his power and his divinity.
  Conclusions: 1 the Devil has access to people only using  2 sin Each sin has its name and determined he is not a man, but a God  3 In life everyone has a choice: either with God, but will have to obey His will or with a sinful world, with all its "charms," but with no future, no eternal life 4 we Have a wonderful tool of spiritual healing is the Blood of Jesus Christ that gives purification from all sin.  It is only important to call sin by your name and pray to God in the name of Jesus Christ.  " if we walk in the light like He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin." 1 John 1: 7.
  5 and another very important conclusion: if the Lord gives healing and reveals spiritual values, then one cannot remain ungrateful.  The inner nature should be filled with the power from above, the power of the Holy spirit.  Otherwise, the situation described in his time by Jesus may occur in a state of disbelief with his disciples and the people around Him:
"21 When a strong man armed keepeth his house, then his goods are safe;
22 when his strongest attack on him, and overcome him, he taketh from all his armor wherein he trusted, and divides stolen from him.
23 He who is not With me, is against me; and he who does not gather With me, he wastes.
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and finding none, he saith, I will return into my house whence I came out;
25 and when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished;
26 then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits, which are worst of themselves, and go in and live there, and the latter is worse than the first for a man." Luke 11: 21-26.
  It is important to be able to be fulfilled with power from above and to be very attentive to your walk before God, knowing that the time on earth we have released a little.

   Be blessed!
