Acts 19:15-16

15 One day the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know about, but who are you?” 16 Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.

One response to “Acts 19:15-16

  1. The evil spirit knew Christ because it had served Him prior to the rebellion and it knew His power over them. Even in the spirit world, this demon had heard about Paul and the Spirit of God that he operated in. But these men were just speaking something that had no root in their lives. They had learned a method, but they did not know the giver of the power.

    They were jumped on and beaten. It was not the power of Christ that was overcome, but the method, or the tool that these men were wielding. If I don’t know Christ, and walk in His way and His power, I am just spouting what I have learned and I am emulating what I see other people walk in.
