Let’s TURN to Matthew 8: for the SIMPLE answer:
Jesus Heals Two Men with Demons
28 And when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes,e two demon-possessed men met him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way. 29 And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?” 30 Now a herd of many pigs was feeding at some distance from them. 31 And the demons begged him, saying, “If you cast us out, send us away into the herd of pigs.” 32 And he said to them, “Go.” So they came out and went into the pigs, and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the waters. 33 The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, especially what had happened to the demon-possessed men. 34 And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their region.
In my article: DID THE DEVIL BELIEVE JESUS WAS GOD, we see how Satan who was among the highest of all angels, certainly knew and addressed Jesus as being the Son of GOD only, in Matthew 4:3 and Matthew 4:6 and NOT as GOD.
And the Devil and Jesus also addressed GOD as being GOD ALONE.
We have also just seen in Matthew 8:28 to 35, how the situation is IDENTICAL, in that the demons ALSO referred to calling Jesus: O Son of God?
And did NOT call Jesus GOD.
Or did NOT refer to Jesus as being GOD.
Or did the demons give ANY indication that Jesus was GOD Himself.
But there is more.
Notice how it was the demons who begged Jesus by saying: If you cast us out send us away into the herd of pigs?
We see how It was the demons who spoke to Jesus through the two men.
And yet there is no indication in the Bible that the demons personally knew or even met Jesus before hand.
And yet the demons had already known that Jesus was the Son of God, when no one had yet spoke.
And yet the demons did NOT refer to Jesus being GOD.
Surely if Jesus were GOD, they obviously would have called Jesus GOD.
And there is more.
Notice how Jesus did NOT say to the demons you are wrong, I AM GOD?
Notice how Jesus did NOT say to the demons you are wrong, I AND THE FATHER ARE ONE GOD?
Notice how Jesus did NOT say to the demons you are wrong, I AND THE FATHER ARE THREE?
As with Matthew 4 where the Devil also referred to Jesus as only being the SON of GOD and NOT GOD.
As we have seen again there is also NOTHING in Matthew 8:28 to 35 referring to Jesus being GOD, or teaching Jesus is GOD, or THREE called the Catholic TRINITY.
There are also NO CONTRADICTIONS in BOTH Matthew 4 with the Devil and Matthew 8 with the demons who say Jesus is the Son of GOD, as there are CONTRADICTIONS by the faith of the people who teach Jesus is the Son and the SAME ONE TRUE GOD He came from.
Matthew 8:28 to 35 is yet again ANOTHER one of COUNTLESS Biblical FACTS that proves Jesus is NOT GOD, but the LITERAL SON of His GOD.
THE BIBLICAL FACTS ARE:
Jesus instead confirmed to St Peter how pleased he was for understanding the truth, that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
What is so DIFFICULT in understanding Jesus is THE LITERAL Son of His GOD.
The scriptures are crystal clear and self evident, plain and simple and could not be any clearer regards to the identity of Jesus.
And yet Trinitarians say they cannot understand their faith, and their faith is a MYSTERY.
WHY CAN’T PEOPLE Who TEACH JESUS IS GOD UNDERSTAND THE SIMPLE BIBLICAL FACTS?
The answer is in my article and video: WHO Were And ARE The FALSE PROPHETS?
