Jesus' confrontation with the Pharisees revealed two stark contrasts regarding Him.
The Light Meets the Dark - Part Three
Pastor Wes Emerson | February 5th, 2017
I. THE DEFAMATION OF THE DARK
Several defamations were hurled at Jesus in an attempt to destroy His ministry
1. He Bore False Witness--John 8:13 (they accused Him of being a liar)
2. His Birth Was Illegitimate--John 8:19, 25, 41 (the pharisees defamed Jesus by questioning His divine origin and identity)
3. He Was Demon Possessed--John 8:48, 52
The pharisees called Jesus a Samaritan with a demon living inside Him!
A. Jesus denied this ludicrous defamation--v49, John 8:29, Colossians 2:9, Luke 4:1
B. Jesus declared superiority over Satan--John 14:30, 1 John 4:4, Ephesians 1:20-21
C. Jesus demonstrated power over demons--v48, Mark 3:11, Luke 4:36, 41, James 2:19
D. Jesus did the works of the Father--John 5:36, John 10:25, John 10:21, Acts 10:38
E. Jesus Defeated The devil--Genesis 3:15, 1 John 3:8, Hebrews 2:14, John 12:31
JESUS was not demon-possessed....He is the Divine Son of God
JESUS declared His power over Satan and demonstrated it during His earthly ministry
JESUS defeated Satan and his forces....The Devil is a defeated foe!!
One day soon, the Devil will meet his fate at the Hands of JESUS CHRIST!!
