His Truth Will Set You Free

Listen to what Jesus says; “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32)

Satan is Terrified


Jesus confronted Satan many times during His life on earth. This morning I was reading about one of those times in the gospel of Mark. Jesus came across a demon-possessed man causing trouble among some tombs. In referring to the man, Mark writes:

“When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. He shouted at the top of his voice, ‘What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!’” (Mark 5:6-7)

The demons of Satan were absolutely terrified of Jesus. Satan fell on his knees at Jesus’ feet and begged Jesus for mercy. I stopped reading and just focused on that fact. What does it mean to me, that Satan is terrified of Jesus? Think about it – what does it mean to you?

Reflections on a double life... I'm just a wanna-be writer. What's it like trying to do serious writing while also being consumed with a full-time engineering job? Between the two, I sometimes don't get much sleep. But I love writing - it gets me out of bed when it's way too dark, just so I can do some work on my book before heading off to work. I'm also passionate about the truth of God and Jesus, a truth that is not always visible in the outward view of the Christian religion. It's this passion that has pulled me out of bed to write for over 6 years now, still working on the same book, a book about truth. Will it ever be finished? God knows.

  1. To me it means that I do not have to fear. I am God’s child through Christ and greater is HE that lives in me than he that lives in the world. (1 john 4: 4) There’s power in the name of Jesus. “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” Luke 10:19

  2. I agree with Nancy and was thinking of the exact same verse before reading it in her reply, that, Christ is greater than he who is in the world. With that kind of power we have the spirit of Christ to overpower the works of Satan, and Satan is defeated from doing his work in our lives.

  3. It definitely reminds me that in the end, Satan will lose. All the trouble he is going to, to destroy this world, destroy families, destroy hearts and goodness, won’t matter in the end. He has no chance and he knows that. It gives me hope too! Hope that tomorrow and eternity will be better because of God. Thanks for sharing this! :D
