and the Holy Scriptures
In the physical as well as in the spiritual worlds, knowing the enemy
is always advantageous. If you are considering praying in earnest to
receive Heavenly protection against the snares of the evil one, we
encourage you to first acquaint yourself with what the Holy Scriptures
say about evil, possessions, exorcisms, etc.
There are Ten Parts to this Series. Using our Search

Once you know The Enemy better, your prayer accessing the Power of God
will be far more effective for your protection, and that of your loved
ones, against the snares of the evil one.
PART 5 [New Testament]
And immediately there was in their
synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of
Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One
of God." But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!"
And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice,
came out of him.
And they were all amazed, so that they questioned
among themselves, saying, "What is
this? A new teaching! With authority he commands even the unclean
spirits, and they obey him." And at once his fame spread
everywhere throughout all the surrounding region of Galilee.
And he went down to Caperna-um, a city
of Galilee. And he was teaching them on the sabbath; and they were
astonished at his teaching, for his word was with authority. And in the
synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon; and
he cried out with a loud voice, "Ah!
What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to
destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God." But Jesus
rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and
come out of him!" And when the demon had thrown him down in the
midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm.
And they were all amazed and said to one another, "What is this word? For with authority and
power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out." And
reports of him went out into every place in the surrounding region.
Now he was teaching in one of the
synagogues on the sabbath. And there was a woman who had had a spirit
of infirmity for eighteen years; she was bent over and could not fully
straighten herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her and said to
her, "Woman, you are freed from your
infirmity." And he laid his hands upon her, and immediately she
was made straight, and she praised God.
And he went about all Galilee, teaching
in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing
every disease and every infirmity among the people. So his fame spread
throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those
afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and
paralytics, and he healed them.
Now those who were scattered went about
preaching the word. Philip went down to a city of Samaria, and
proclaimed to them the Christ. And the multitudes with one accord gave
heed to what was said by Philip, when they heard him and saw the signs
which he did. For unclean spirits came out of many who were possessed,
crying with a loud voice; and many who were paralyzed or lame were
healed. So there was much joy in that city.
Let us pray...
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us
in the day of battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and
snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou,
Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the Power of God, thrust into Hell
satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the
ruin of souls. AMEN!
