Whom The Son Sets Free Is Free Indeed

In Luke 8:26-39 is the story of the maniac of Gadara.  This poor man was possessed by many demons which had driven him insane.  He was so crazed that he wouldn't keep any clothes on himself and he lived among the tombs.  The scripture here tells us that when this man saw Jesus, he cried out and fell down before him begging to not be tormented.  Jesus spoke to the demons inside the man asking their name.  They answered, "Legion" meaning many.  They begged Jesus not to send them into the deep but allow them to go into a herd of pigs nearby, which he did, and the pigs ran off a cliff into the water.  The man gained his right mind once again and was delivered from insanity and a tormented life.

When Jesus entered into that region of the Gadarenes, those demons knew he was there.  When he came near, they were afraid and begged mercy of him.  When Jesus enters into the region of our lives, let me tell you, the demons knows he's there.  He has the power to deliver us from even the worst of situations, thousands of dilemmas "Legion".  He can help us think straight and have our right mind about us.
II Timothy 1:7 "For God has not given us a Spirit of fear, but of love and power and a sound mind."

Let Jesus send your pigs a packing, taking every tormenting demon with them!
