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?

First, my writing isn't about me. Don’t want the attention, don’t want to feed my ravenous ego (yep, I’m just a typical pride-plagued human). But I love writing - it gets me out of bed when it's way too dark, just so I can do some writing before heading off to work. I write because I’m passionate about God, Jesus, His Spirit, and His truth. And, I feel the Holy Spirit gets shortchanged in the world we call Christianity. The truth is sometimes lacking too.

  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
