Matthew 8:28–34 (ESV)

Jesus Heals Two Men with Demons

28 And when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men met him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way. 29 And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?” 30 Now a herd of many pigs was feeding at some distance from them. 31 And the demons begged him, saying, “If you cast us out, send us away into the herd of pigs.” 32 And he said to them, “Go.” So they came out and went into the pigs, and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the waters. 33 The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, especially what had happened to the demon-possessed men. 34 And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their region.

 

Oh great!  Two men possessed with demons.  So… who is afraid of Jesus?  The demons!  Listen to their response: And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?”  If the devil is more powerful than Jesus, why would they feel threatened and question Jesus coming to torment them?”  It is because Jesus IS more powerful!  Jesus is God, no part of God’s creation.  We worship the Creator, not the creation.  Jesus authority of demons even scares the people.  I know who I want on my side! Jesus!

 

I pray: O Lord, you are Lord of all.  I put my faith and trust in you.  Forgive me when I fail and help me to stay focused on you.  Amen!

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
