Sixth Witness: A LEGION


The captains of two waring camps must know each other to a reasonable extent.They can know the ability of one another to a certain point.One thing possible is that they may not want to directly aknowledge that ability or may want to dwell on it for the purpose of manipulation.They may want to use that ability to intimidate each other.This was what we saw satan did to Jesus in the last piece as the fifth witness that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
If a captain knows the name or ability of his opponent,the followers ought to know same.This is what we shall examine in this write-up.That is why we have a LEGION(Demons/evil spirits) as the sixth witness that Jesus Christ is the Son God.These are from the camp of satan whose works Jesus Christ came to destroy by His manifestation.
Contained in the Gospel according to Apostle Mark in chapter five from verses one to twenty is the story of a man who was having an evil spirit.The evil spirit tormented him day and night and could not be tied not even with chains.Note that the Holy Bible reveals in verse two that “The man had an evil spirit from the devil(satan) living inside him”. The group of evil spirits rolled into one is called A LEGION.This proves that the evil spirits are followers or co-workers with the devil.
One day,the man with the Legion had an encounter with Jesus Christ.What happened? The stnry goes thus in verse six to eight,
‘While Jesus was far away,the man saw Him.The man ran to Jesus and bowed down before Him.
Jesus said to the man,”You evil spirit,come out of that man.”
So the man shouted with a loud voice,”What do you want with me,Jesus,Son of the Most High God? I beg you to promise to God that you will not punish me.”
It is in verse ten that the name of the head-evil-spirit spoke by the man’s mouth and declared that his name was LEGION.
That was a Legion for you saying it unequivocally that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Most High God.This confirms the words of the Scripture that say,”In Jesus’ name,every knee must bow …”
A Legion in a man bowed to the Lord Jesus Christ and declared the true identity as the “Son of the Most High God.”
What further evidence do you need in a case that involves two individuals;and one and his son testifies that their opponent is sincerely free to bear the title he claims belongs to him? If satan can agree tactally that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and an evil spirit from him (son of satan) declares so, what can Jesus then be? The Son of the Most High God!
Therefore,my beloved reader,do you think you have any reason not to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God? You have none! May you have sufficient light to understand this truth.
Every Scripture quoted is from easy-to-read version of the Bible.
