    I'm going through the same thing about the devil trying 2 take over my young boys that the Lord has Blessed me with but I Pray

    Notice that two people and two demons submitted to the Lord. The centurion is an example of the power of faith and humility. Jesus had no certain place to live but didn't allow that to hinder him. Purity, light, and holiness is to touch someone and they are liberate. The heavenly Fathers will is top priority that even burying the earthly father is task for others. Jesus was peaceful when evicted.

    I think how AMAZING THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WAS, IS, AND IS TO COME! AND WHY, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL DON'T LOVE HIM AS HE COMMANDS US TO DO! AND THAT'S IN MARK 12:29-31!!!!!!!

    Matthew 8 vs 15
    When Jesus touch Peter's mother hand ..this reveal ed to me that. Jesus anointing when he spoke the word to fever to leave. That's all it took for the fever to flee because he once carried our sickness and diseases and overcame ALL of them. And Peter's mother recovered and went by her business..Thank you Jesus we overcome in him because his name is above everything!!!

    Jesus talks a lot about faith imagine Matthews chapter 8 to let us know how strong faith is and what it can do if you just had a little of it and believing in and God himself
  • Paul
    This can be one interpretation but not the only one. This means the ancestor saints of God in the Catholic Church and their following WILL be cast out of the kingdom of God. This is because of their rebellion against Jesus Christ and the promises GOD made to the Jews of Israel for them at the end of the ages. God WILL judge replacement theology and antisemitism by the Catholic heresy of ages past.
