8-1-2017 Real Demon-Possession

Demon-possession never occurred before Jesus came and cast out demons by the power of God. “And when the demon was cast out, the mute spoke. And the multitudes marveled, saying, ‘It was never seen like this in Israel!’” (Matthew 9:33 NKJV). “After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go” (Luke 10:1 NKJV). “Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.’ And He said to them, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven’” (Luke 10:17-18 NKJV). Casting out demons followed believers until the New Testament was confirmed (Mark 16:20). Since the faith “was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3 NKJV), there has been no true demon-possession since!
