Title: The Gospel of the Kingdom of God is the Power of God over Demons, Disease, Death, and Destruction


1
The Gospel of the Kingdom of God is the Power of
God over Demons, Disease, Death, and Destruction
  • Mark 121-28

2
Synagogue
  • In structure the synagogue was modeled after the
    temple. It was built, when possible, on high
    ground and often constructed so that the people
    could sit facing the direction of Jerusalem.
    There was a portable chest for the scrolls of the
    Law and the Prophets, and a platform for the
    reading of the Scriptures and for preaching. Men
    and women sat apart. The scribes loved the chief
    seats facing the people (Mk 1239).

3
Mark 122
  • And they were astonished at his doctrine
  • for he taught them as one that had authority, and
    not as the scribes.

Why?
4
Scribe Defined
  • NOT someone who only copied Scripture
  • Scribes
  • Read the Word of God
  • Led the people in studying Scripture
  • Provided interpretation and guidance on
    applicationessentially commentary
  • Oversaw the maintenance and organization of the
    scrolls and books

5
Mark 123
  • And there was in their synagogue a man with an
    unclean spirit

What is an unclean spirit?
6
Unclean Spirit Demon
  • Look at V. 34
  • And he healed many that were sick of divers
    diseases, and cast out many devils daimonion

demons
7
Parallel Scripture
  • Luke 433
  • And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a
    spirit of an unclean devil daimonion, and cried
    out with a loud voice,

8
The Enemy of God in NT
  • Satan (36x) Satanas
  • Beelzebub (7x)
  • Devil (34x) diabolos
  • unclean spirit (10x)
  • evil spirit (2x)
  • devil/ demon (28x) daimon
  • devil/demon (47x) daimonion

Leader of Fallen Angels
9
What should we think of the demonic activity in
the New Testament?
10
Matthew 424
  • And his fame went throughout all Syria and they
    brought unto him all sick people that were taken
    with divers diseases and torments, and those
    which were possessed with devils, and those which
    were lunatick, and those that had the palsy and
    he healed them.

11
Dont think in terms of demon possession was the
unscientific way of describing a mental illness
or other sickness.
12
Demons and Illness
  • Sometimes Demons Cause Illness
  • Luke 1311
  • And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit
    of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed
    together, and could in no wise lift up herself.

13
Paul Said
  • That we should not be ignorant about our enemy.
  • 2 Corinthians 211
  • Lest Satan should get an advantage of us for we
    are not ignorant of his devices.

14
Revelation 124
  • And his tail drew the third part of the stars of
    heaven, and did cast them to the earth and the
    dragon stood before the woman which was ready to
    be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as
    it was born.

15
Evil Organization
  • Hierarchy
  • For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but
    against principalities, against powers, against
    the rulers of the darkness of this world, against
    spiritual wickedness in high places.
  • Ephesians 612

16
Turn back to Daniel 1010-14
  • Notice the
  • Prince of Persia hinders Gabriel

17
Jude 9
  • Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with
    the devil he disputed about the body of Moses,
    durst not bring against him a railing accusation,
    but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

18
What would Jesus have been teaching about?
  • Look back at v. 15

19
Notice
  • The Kingdom of God in vs. 15

20
The Kingdom of God
  • Here is one mans definition
  • The sovereign rule of God, initiated by Christs
    earthly ministry and consummated when the kingdom
    of the world becomes the kingdom of our Lord and
    of his Christ (Rev 1115).
  • Walter A. Elwell

21
This Helps Me Understand Why
  • Mark 123
  • And there was in their synagogue a man with an
    unclean spirit and he cried out,

He cries out because he is threatened.
22
Mark 124
  • Saying, Let us alone
  • what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of
    Nazareth?
  • art thou come to destroy us?
  • I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

23
Mark 125
  • And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace,
    and come out of him.

Warning This is NOT Exorcism
24
Exorcism
  • to expel (an evil spirit) by adjuration

a solemn oath
Jesus said, come out
25
Mark 126
  • And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and
    cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

26
Question
  • What is the relationship between the power to
    rebuke demons and the gospel?

27
Back to Mark 115
  • And saying,
  • The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is
    at hand repent ye, and believe the gospel.

28
1 Thessalonians 15
  • For our gospel came not unto you in word only,
    but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in
    much assurance
  • as ye know what manner of men we were among you
    for your sake.

29
What kind of gospel is powerful enough to take me
to heaven but cant deliver me from a demon
before I get saved?
30
Acts 222
  • Ye men of Israel, hear these words Jesus of
    Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by
    miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by
    him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also
    know

31
Romans 116
  • For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for
    it is the power of God unto salvation to every
    one that believeth to the Jew first, and also to
    the Greek.

32
What does the gospel save me from?
  • Sin and Self
  • Demons, Death, Destruction and the Devil

33
Mark 127
  • And they were all amazed, insomuch that they
    questioned among themselves, saying, What thing
    is this?
  • what new doctrine is this?
  • for with authority commandeth he even the unclean
    spirits, and they do obey him.

34
What new doctrine is this?
  • It is the gospel of
  • Jesus Christ of the Kingdom of God

35
Look back at vs. 27
  • and they do obey him.

36
Understanding the Gospel
  • The gospel is NOT just the message that gets
    people to heaven.
  • The gospel is a larger message that communicates
    Gods power/authority over everything including
    demons, disease, death, destruction, and even the
    devil.
  • \

37
Turn to Revelation 127-12
  • John Visions
  • War in Heaven

38
  • And there was war in heaven Michael and his
    angels fought against the dragon and the dragon
    fought and his angels, And prevailed not neither
    was their place found any more in heaven. And the
    great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
    called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the
    whole world he was cast out into the earth, and
    his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a
    loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come
    salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our
    God, and the power of his Christ for the accuser
    of our brethren is cast down, which accused them
    before our God day and night. And they overcame
    him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of
    their testimony and they loved not their lives
    unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens,
    and ye that dwell in them.

39
Only Christ (his apostles) would know whether a
disease or illness was caused by a demon.
40
Sources of Sin
  • The Heart of Man
  • The flesh/sin nature
  • Satan
  • Demon possession/unclean spirit
  • Mental Disorders
  • A result of living in a fallen world

41
Matthew 424
  • And his fame went throughout all Syria and they
    brought unto him all sick people that were taken
    with divers diseases and torments, and those
    which were possessed with devils, and those which
    were lunatick, and those that had the palsy and
    he healed them.

42
Only 1 Reference to Exorcists
  • Acts 1913
  • Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists,
    took upon them to call over them which had evil
    spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We
    adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.

43
Look at Acts 16
  • 16-22

44
Closing Facts
  • Nothing in the G. C. hints at having to exorcise
    demons before one can be saved
  • There is not a spiritual gift of exorcism
  • Unclean spirits do not abide in the same temple
    (body) as the Holy Spiritno cohabitation
  • Nothing in the Bible indicate a physical cross is
    a tool for exorcism

45
Mark 128
  • And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout
    all the region round about Galilee.
