Psa. 96.5 'For all the gods of the Gentiles are demons. But the Lord made the heavens.'
Much of the content of the Four Gospels is centred on how Jesus ministered to people. In the Gospels approximately one third of the verses that concern His actual ministry focus on how Jesus cast out demons. There are ten times as many verses devoted to Jesus’ ministry of exorcism as there are to His raising the dead. There seven times the number of verses devoted to stories of Jesus casting out demons as are devoted to His cleansing of lepers. There are far more verses in the Gospels that tell us about deliverance from demons than there are about salvation from sins. Deliverance from demons is not a minor ministry it was at the core of Jesus’ ministry to the needs of the people.
In the Acts of the Apostles no single subject has more verses devoted to it than how the early church dealt with demons.
Since this was the major focus of the ministry of Jesus and the early church, it should also be very important to the church today.
