Doug Tales 103: Evil Entities, Part Three
The winds and waves and all things are subject to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His power is greater than all evil spirits and entities, and they know and will acknowledge Him. Doug Mendenhall includes this trait of evil entities in Conquering Spiritual Evil, Volume One (2012) on pages 65-66:
Characteristic #3: Demons and devils know the Savior and recognize His power over them.
Demons and devils recognize the Savior and His authority.
“And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?” (Matthew 8:29)
“And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not.” (Luke 4:33-35)
Other scriptures show that dark entities know Him:
“Now when the sun was setting, all they that had any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he laid his hands on every one of them, and healed them. And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.” (Luke 4:40-41)
“And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.” (Mark 1:34)
“And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. And he straitly charged them that they should not make him known.” (Mark 3:11-12)
