Jesus Removes an Unclean Spirit At Capernaum

Bible Event – Jesus’ Life

It was a Sabbath, the Jewish day of worship.

Jesus miraculously removes an unclean spirit

Jesus had just finished teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum when a man with an unclean spirit saw Him. The spirit cried out, “Leave us alone. Have you come to destroy us, Holy one of God”.

Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit saying, “Silence! Come out of him”.

Immediately, the unclean spirit, crying aloud and throwing the man into convulsions, left him.

The amazed onlookers asked each other, “What is this? A new teaching with authority! He [Jesus] even commands the unclean spirits and they obey him.”. (Mark 1:23-28, Luke 4:33-37)

Thought

Today, Jesus wants to be part of our daily joys and troubles, he waits for our invitation!

Jesus will protect us against all evil and unclean spirits.

Reflection

Lord Jesus, grant me the grace to remain close to you and be forever shielded by the power of your love.

Prayer: Michael The Archangel

Holy Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust down to hell, satan
and all the wicked spirits
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
