This powerful letter is about victory in the name of Jesus, for two women that were demon possessed!
Mark 5:1-20 (KJV)
And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them.
13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
14 And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
15 And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.
17 And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts.
18 And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.
19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
20 And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
Matthew 12:22 (KJV)
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
Ephesians 6:10-18 (KJV)
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
The Hmong are some of the most engaged listeners at FEBC. Daily we receive responses from the Hmong from all across Southeast Asia. Here’s one powerful letter we received:
“I’m a church leader in [a restricted country in Southeast Asia]. When the communists took over the country in 1975, I was only a young man and knew very little about the Word of God.
When most of the Christians fled the country, I stayed with my parents and began to witness to others about Jesus Christ.
In 1985, I started to listen to your radio broadcasts. It was then that I decided to build a church for the people in my village. Unfortunately, many people opposed me.
But I prayed and in 1989 I was able to demonstrate the power of God to my neighbors.
I heard that there were two demon-possessed women in our village, and one of them would viciously attack anyone if they got close. Her relatives decided to chain her and the other lady up in cuffs and lock them in a cage to try and keep everyone safe. But while they were locked up they would never eat, and when they released the women to eat, the women would chase people and attack them as before.
When I heard this news, some believers and I went to see both the ladies right away. Upon arriving at the village, the people in that area told us that if we could cast the demons out, they would believe in the Lord. So, we started praying and reading the Bible to these demon-possessed ladies, and we laid our hands on them.
After concerted prayer, the demons were finally cast out and the women returned to normal. I thanked God for this miracle, and because of what God was able to do through us, we were able to build a church with no opposition from the public.
Thank God for this miracle, and thank you for your ministry. I just want you to know that the Hmong people totally depend on your radio broadcasts.”
Praise God! Let’s continue to pray for the much needed ministry of the broadcasts of FEBC! May God bless them abundantly for their convictions and selfless sacrifice, in reaching the world, with God’s Word!
