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
