Evil Spirits can live in Great Numbers
In Mark 5 we read the story of a man with an unclean spirit who lived in the country of Greasiness.
When Jesus asked the Spirit its name, it replied, My name is Legion; for I am many.
A Legion is a Roman army made up of Infantry and Supporting Cavalry numbering three to six Thousand men.
Out of this Man, Jesus cast out Thousands of Spirits. So many and so influential.
The reason Jesus let the Spirits go into the pigs, was to stop the suffering the man would have gone through.
Evil Spirits often manifest violently as they come out.
Spirits can be like Fogs, Insects hopping or crawling.

THY ARE TO BE CAST OUT
THE PRICE OF CASTING OUT DEMONS
The price; :DEFINITION:
The coat at which anything is OBTAINED is Expenditure of Time and Strength.
To meet the Demons of Spiritual WARFARE, one has to be Renewed Constantly through FELLOWSHIP with GOD and READING HIS WORD
There is another PRICE which has to be PAID by MANY WHO SET OTHERS FREE.
It is the Cost of being Faced with DISCREDIT and ALL sorts of ACCUSATIONS.
Casting out Demons is sure to be a Controversial issue.
SATAN WILL SEE TO THAT
GOD IS WITH US AT ALL TIMES IN THE DELIVERANCE ROOM
Jesus Himself came under attack for casting out Demons. Mark 3:10-11
He was accused of using Satan's power-not the power of the Holy Spirit-to cast out Spirits
This was a serious accusation, and a very serious thing for those who were making it.
It is this context that we read of the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, a sin which the Bible calls an eternal sin and a sin from which there is no forgiveness (verses 28-30)
Satan will do all He can to hinder believers from casting out his "fifth column."
He will send spirits of unbelief, fear of man, violence, hatred, and so on, to distract the soldier of God from enforcing Calvary's victory.
Don't be surprised when it comes.
