Even Devils Believe in One God; The Path to Evil Possessions

Luke 4:32-35 KJV, “And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power. And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, 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. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.”

Matthew 8:28-29 KJV, “And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?”

James 2:19 KJV, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”

EG White, SOP Vol 2, 1877, p. 177, Commenting on Luke 4:32-35, “There was a man in the synagogue who was possessed of the spirit of Satan. He broke in upon the discourse of Jesus with a piercing shriek, that chilled the blood of the hearers with a nameless terror. . .

Devils even believed and trembled, but the Israel of God had closed their eyes and ears to divine evidences, and knew not the time of their visitation. Satan’s object in leading his wretched victim to the synagogue, was to distract the attention of the people from Jesus to the paroxysms [violent expressions] of the poor sufferer and prevent the words of truth from reaching the hearts of the people. But the darkened understanding of the man comprehended that the teachings of Jesus were from Heaven. The power of divinity aroused the terror of the demon which controlled his mind, and a conflict ensued between it and his remnant of reason.”

EG White, SOP Vol 2, 1877, Pp. 179-180, “The secret source of his calamity, which had made him a fearful spectacle to his friends and a burden to himself, was in his own life. The pleasures of sin had fascinated him, the path of dissipation had looked bright and tempting, he had thought to make life a grand carnival. He did not dream of becoming a disgust and terror to the world and the reproach of his family. He thought his time could be spent in innocent folly; but once on the downward path, his feet rapidly descended till he had broken the laws of health and morality. Intemperance and frivolity chained his senses, the fine qualities of his mind were perverted, and Satan stepped in and took absolute control of him.”

The Path to Satan gaining control and How to Overcome evil spirit to possess us:

1 Pleasure of Sin- Hate Sin and Love righteousness.

2 Dissipation or debauchery- Love not the world, its lust, pride, and things.

3 Breaking of health and moral laws- Keep the 10 Commandments of God in the heart.

4 Intemperance and Frivolity or lack of sincerity- Ask the Spirit of God to take control.

5. Mind Perversion- Meditate on the Word of God.

Only those who would come to Jesus, the Son of God, and believed on His Father, who sent Him were healed. Would you like to be restored? Come to Christ. Believe the Father and His Son. Their Holy Spirit will possess you.

Nope, not the three gods that make one god or triune god.

Sincerely in the Blessed Hope.
