A man with an impure spirit, a synagogue leader with a dying daughter, a woman with an issue of blood, a mother with a possessed child…All of them at different moments, “fell at Jesus’ feet.”
#1. A tomb is for burying the dead. It’s a place of isolation. A burial chamber for the deceased. The man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet Jesus when he saw Him. The man lived there. He couldn’t be bound with a chain. The word says that no one could bind him anymore. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Among the tombs night and day, the man would cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of Him. Jesus told the impure spirit to come out of the man. The man who HAD BEEN possessed by the legion of demons, was sitting there dressed and in his right mind. (Mark Ch. 5)
Jesus brings life. He’s life to the dying. He’s life for the living.
