5:19 Tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee - This was peculiarly needful there, where Christ did not go in person.

    Are you laden with sickness in body or in soul? Come onto Jesus who has power to heal all infirmities and sin-sick souls. He did all the casting out of the devil when He was man on earth. He is the same today and evermore shall be.

    Hello Irene123, and Lu2677. Irene the scripture you are referring to is in Matt. 25:41 which prove that everlasting fire or the lake of fire was prepared for the Devil and his angels. Lu2627 Matthew Henry's commentary said a legion was 6000 or more therefore, that poor man was in a hopeless situation until Jesus healed him. Glory be to God in the highest. Amen!

    In this chapter, we have, I. Christ casting the legion of devils out of the man possessed, and suffering them to enter into the swine (v. 1-20). II. Christ healing the woman with the bloody issue, in the way as he was going to raise Jairus's daughter to life (v. 21-43). These three miracles we had the story of before (Mt. 8:28 , etc. and Mt. 9:18 , etc.) but more fully related here.
