8-2-2017 Real Demon Influence

Jesus was met with “a certain man from the city who had demons for a long time. And he wore no clothes, nor did he live in a house but in the tombs [the unclean spirit] had often seized him, and he was kept under guard, bound with chains and shackles; and he broke the bonds and was driven by the demon into the wilderness” (Luke 8:27, 29 NKJV). In our day and time, drug-addiction causes the same effects as 1st Century demon-possession: disregard for clothes, fascination with death, wildly reckless behavior, and leaving family and friends! With the demons gone, that man was “sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind” (Luke 8:35 NKJV). Demons had to obey Jesus’ command, but drug addicts today need help to come to their “right mind” and obey Christ.
