The Stronger man

He was casting out a devil, and it was mute. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and thepeople wondered. Luke 11: 14.The mute, deaf, blind, and demon-possessed man represents all the children of Adam, who through the flesh are possessed of Satan in original sin, so that they must be his slaves and do according to

In the WIlderness

Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the wilderness to betempted of the devil. Matt. 4:1.Jesus was led up of the Spirit into the wilderness, that he might there fast and be tempted; but no one should imitate Christ's example of his own choice and make it a selfish and arbitrary fasting; but instead wait for the Spirit, who will send him
Put on, therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving one another.Colossians 3:12-13.Observe the tender and sacred style of the apostle's admonition.
