SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES
And when He had come out of the boat, immediately there met Him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit. Mark 5:2
During my training at Holy Ghost University I learned much about the demonic, but it wasn't until I began a residential ministry for drug addicts that I experienced what Jesus dealt with when the Gadarene demoniac appeared!
This man whom Jesus confronted had supernatural strength, was living in the tombs, running naked and cutting himself with stones! Breaking chains that he was shackled with, he broke free and no one could restrain him. We had a women's ministry and I have seen some pretty unusual stuff coming out of those young ladies. A sixteen year old picked up our copy machine with one hand in a fit of rage, one woman jumped out of the window, many others were "cutters," those who cut themselves with knives and razor blades, others would writhe on the floor like a snake.
It was a flying circus for many years with people from all walks of life coming into our program to get free. Drug addicts, alcoholics, prostitutes, homosexuals and many others who were demon possessed! The man Jesus dealt with had 5000-6000 demons, but all those demons couldn't stop him from coming to Him to get free!
Jesus said to the man, "Come out of the man, unclean spirit!" Then He asked him, "What is your name?" And he answered saying, "My name is Legion; for we are many." Mark 5:8,9
