Jesus Christ still rescues

I have read and reread many times over Mark 5….Right before that Mark 4:35-41 Jesus calms the sea…My observance of these verses are that Jesus was on a rescue mission and satan was trying to stop him…First by sending a storm on the sea and then putting great fear into His disciples…After crossing the sea a demonic who lived in the tombs who was exceedingly strong whereby he was chained and shackled but was able to break free and noone could keep him chained,…He was naked, cut himself and cried out day and night for he was tormented by demons…I know that since this was in a mountainous area and along the sea that his cries would echo into the city and cause people to be full of fear…The man ran to him after seeing Jesus afar off… Jesus immediately took control of the situation and commanded the demons to come out…His name of Legion signifies that he had a multitude of demons..These demons were on the verge of destroying him …They had already destroyed him mentally and the next step was to destroy him physically…They asked Jesus to cause them to go into the swine and 2000 swine ran violently down the cliffs into the sea and were drowned (death by demons)…I totally believe that if Jesus did not rescue this man the demons would have caused him to jump from the cliff into the sea and perish…Now after deliverance the man was sitting and clothed and in his right mind…No more was he hearing from the demons to cut himself to cry out, to be naked…He was totally free and in his RIGHT MIND and now he was CLOTHED…He was clothed with God’s righteousness….Jesus not only calmed the storm on the sea but He also calmed the storms within this man’s soul….Jesus still is able to rescue all those who come to Him and calm their storms of their soul….

    Hi, I noticed a few things that were questionable with your blog. Here they are:

    “My observance of these verses are that Jesus was on a rescue mission and satan was trying to stop him…First by sending a storm on the sea and then putting great fear into His disciples…These demons were on the verge of destroying him …They had already destroyed him mentally and the next step was to destroy him physically…They asked Jesus to cause them to go into the swine and 2000 swine ran violently down the cliffs into the sea and were drowned (death by demons)…I totally believe that if Jesus did not rescue this man the demons would have caused him to jump from the cliff into the sea and perish.”

    What I have to say is that all of the above is not taught by the Bible whatsoever. You cannot teach others what you personally believe or feel about what the verses are saying. They speak for themselves, you cannot add to them. The Bible says that Jesus, not Satan, has control and authority over the weather, and the sea. The reason the storm came was because Jesus caused it to come, so that through it, He could strengthen His disciples’ faith. The storm had nothing to do with Satan. The Bible never says what you claimed about the demons destroying the man mentally and physically. The Bible is completely silent about that, so therefore, you must remain silent as well. Also, the Bible never at all says that the demons would have pushed the man off the cliff. You cannot go around teaching this, if the Bible doesn’t say it.

    But other than that, the message of your post was good. I only question the way you tried to present that message.

      Thank you for your comments..I have not added to what the Bible says…It is my personal thoughts about these verses based on the character of Jesus the character of satan and the character of demons…Jesus did not come into the world to condemn it nor did He come into the world for the righteous but to seek and save those who are lost..Just one aspect of the devil’s character is to steal kill and destroy….The character of demons is to do the work of the devil…The demons within this man were already causing him to cut himself and he was not in his right mind for the Bible now says he is clothed and in his right mind…That signifies that he was mentally deranged…As I said these are my personal thoughts….
