The next miracle in our series is healing a mute demoniac …This miracle is recorded for us in Matt 9:32-33
The crowd brings to Christ a mute that was possessed with a demon. We are told that “when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel”.
This miraculous healing caused the multitudes to “marvel” at this great event that displayed both the authority and strength of Christ over powers of darkness which resulted in the physical healing of this mute man.
Whenever we read about Christ casting out demons, we have a clear declaration that He has already secured the victory over Satan and his demons and their power in our lives…
Heb 2:14-15 (KJV)
Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
1John 3:7-8 (KJV)
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Rev 20:10 (KJV)
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Because of this, we can rest assured that Satan is on a “short leash” controlled by Almighty God. Satan WILL NEVER intervene in our lives without the Lord’s knowledge or His allowance! (Job 1: & Job 2:)
1Cor 10:13 (KJV)
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
