Jesus is Lord .. Jesus is God

Updated on July 8, 2010

Jesus .. God and Lord

The Bible is full of nuggets of understanding and revelation. In Luke chapter 8 there is a story about a man that is possessed with a legion of demons. This man is so far gone that the city of Galilee felt the need to keep him chained in the cemetery.

Now, there are many nuggets in this story alone. Such as the Gadarenes were a people that could find a perverted sense of security and safety having a demon possessed man kept chained in their cemetery. The deliverance of this man scared them, so much so, that they felt compelled to ask Jesus to leave their city.

But, a greater nugget of understanding and revelation than this lies in this chapter of Luke. The demons within this man immediately recognize the anointed Messiah, once He speaks to them. The devils leave the man and the Bible says that the man is found later, sitting at the feet of Jesus and the man is kempt and in his right mind.

Awhile later, Jesus gets back into the ship to depart from this country and the man whom He has delivered from demons, asks to please go with Jesus.

Jesus tells the man that it would be better for him to stay in his town and tell all who will listen, what God has done for him. In other words, Jesus tells the man to stay put and spread the good news. The man does as Jesus tells him, but notice that the man tells all who listen, what JESUS did for him.

Bear in mind that this man is in his right mind. And in his right mind he knows and understands the divinity of Jesus. He understands that Jesus is God. When Jesus tells him to tell all what God has done for him, he goes and tells all what Jesus has done.

You can also check out Mark 5, where Mark relays the story of the demon possessed man. In Mark's version, the man is told to go and tell others what the LORD has done for him. Yet again and in his RIGHT mind, the man tells all what Jesus has done for him. Wow, Jesus is God and Jesus is Lord. Amen.
