Evil possession is a reality of life it is always there hovering around waiting for the right moment to pounce on us. Evil possession is also not solely limited through diabolical possession. It now hides itself through our ego, high sense of self and through our other undesirable motives, thoughts and actions.
Very clearly we have in the gospel the one who can defeat the devil and it’s no other than Jesus. By His authority Jesus drove out the evil spirit possessing the man. And it is also surprising that the evil spirit knew who Jesus was, this simply means that Jesus was marked as their number one enemy for He alone can defeat them permanently.
Jesus is still the same today as He was yesterday and as He shall be in the future. The evil spirit still trembles before His presence, He is our sole antidote to Satan’s evil scheming. Let us therefore hear His voice crying out for us and let us not harden our hearts for Him. Instead let us open our hearts to Him.
Do we hear the voice of Jesus? Do we open our hearts to Him? - Marino J. Dasmarinas1
