"What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time?" Some distance away a herd of many swine was feeding. The demons pleaded with him,"If you drive us out, send us into the herd of swine."And he said to them, "Go then!" Matthew 8:29-32
Interesting to note, the statement the demons made. What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time? They recognized Jesus right off. Interesting how those who are of evil recognize the hand of God faster than believers. Is it perhaps because they know their time has come to an end, as with the one's we read about today, before their appointed time. Woe to those who follow evil for their time is soon coming to an end.
We read how powerful Jesus is against evil, so it will be evil's undoing. On that day we will rejoice along with the heavens that the power of God has rid the earth of the torment of evil.
It is not too late, to bring about a cleansing of self. To purify our souls, in order to make ourselves ready. Keep the fire of God's love alive within, let it burn brightly for all to see. This is what God seeks of us, to be a light, that will never go out.
Don't be the one's that are put into swine and thrown into the sea to drown, choose life, not death.
