Bride of Christ

That's what I'm talking about!

A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, “I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out.  Acts 19:13 NLT

It seems there were seven preachers kids who "tried" to cast out an evil spirit.   Emphasis is on, “TRIED”!   They ended up embarrassed and quite surprised at what happened next…

... one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, “I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?” Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.

Beloved.. don’t go through life just knowing about the Jesus your denomination believed in or even the Jesus your daddy preaches.   Simply knowing ABOUT Jesus won’t save you!    It won’t help you with demons… or with God.   Either you Know Jesus, or... there is No Jesus to help you.. no matter how hard you TRY!            Listen to this…

On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord!  We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name. ’  But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me…'  Matt. 7:22
