The Scribes and Pharisees could heal, pray for people who were “demon possessed”, etc…
I wonder though, why they (with all their powers) could not cast out the supposed “demon” they said Christ had then(Matt 12:24&27) but resulted to attacking Him in all ways while He yet spoke the truth…
“And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.”
“In that same hour said Jesus to the multitudes, Are ye come out as against a thief with swords and staves for to take me? I sat daily with you teaching in the temple, and ye laid no hold on me.”
*Have you also wondered same?*
If they really had the LOVE OF GOD they so proclaim they have, they would cast out the “demons” instead of exchanging words and fighting with them…
…or don’t you think so too?
The “Scribes” and “Pharisees” then believed too that they were on the right path until Christ came and told them this➡ “John 8:44”
CHRIST DOES NOT BANDY WORDS WITH DEMONS. HE COMMANDS THEM AND THEY OBEY!
The Centurion with the great faith in Luke 7:6-9 told Jesus Christ that He didn’t have to get to where his servant was to heal him. “Just issue the command right here Lord” was his thought… and he was sooo right.
You have that same power of Jesus Christ??? Then please issue the command where you are and let the demons inhabiting any temple here begin to flee.
