The Teachings of Jesus - about Miracles

        

         Text:  Luke 11: 14-28
 

The Occasion

                Jesus was casting out a demon.

              Some attributed His ability to being

                          demonic himself.
 

                 JESUS GIVES A DEFENSE

                       OF HIS  MIRACLES

 

The Argument (part 1)

                Where there is division, there is failure    
         Satan would not work against his own purposes
    If Jesus were demonic, why would he cast out demons?

    If Jesus is demonic, then how do you cast out demons?
 

                  IF HIS MIRACLES ARE GENUINE,

           THEN THE KINGDOM OF GOD HAS COME


The Argument  (part 2)

                Conquering demonstrates superior strength
                  The strength of a man protects his home
                  A man is defeated by one who is stronger

 

                      MIRACLES ARE EVIDENCE 

                OF SUPERIOR DIVINE STRENGTH

 

The Conclusion

                Those not with Me are against Me

                   You are either following Jesus

                            or opposing Jesus
 

             THE EVIDENCE OF JESUS’ DIVINITY

                       (shown by His miracles)

                        DEMANDS A DECISION

 

The Illustration

                When a demonic spirit is cast out it is unsettled

                         Then the demon gathers others and

                   marshals an attack to reclaim what was lost
 

                          NEUTRALITY IS NOT AN OPTION

                         (not making a decision to follow

                                 is a decision to oppose)

 

The Response

                “Blessed is the woman who bore you”

 

                               Jesus’ Rebuttal:

             BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO HEAR THE
                 WORD OF GOD AND OBSERVE IT

 

                 IF Jesus is Who he says He is

          (He has proven his power by miracles)

                THEN we must decide whether 

                      we will fully follow Him.

              NOT FOLLOWING IS A DECISION

           TO OPPOSE HIM AND HIS KINGDOM
