3 28 And when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes, 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, the entire city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their region. Matthew 8: ESV

9 Whats the deal with the Pigs? What is the deal with the pigs? Jesus relinquishes ZERO authority over the demons, even in their escape, they encountered his immediate Judgment & Authority

10 Whats the Deal with the People? 28 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 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, the entire city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their region.

11 Whats the Deal with the People? Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, the pleaded with him to leave their region. Ironically by removing the details about the 2 men, we now have a story that is about us. Gentiles: pigs Why ask him to leave? What is worse the demon possessed men?

12 Perspective from The Whole Town Pros for the miracle: Road was safe Men were safe Demons were gone Tombs were safe Men were restored Great power was present Cons for the miracle: Pigs were not safe No more pigs Pigs were dead Dead pigs No more bacon Loss of business, destruction of economy was too great for the movement to remain

Isaiah 53:4 EaseWe have family and home: they are affected Storm Power over Nature Who is this man? Fear is not FaithWe will experience physical turmoil and great danger Gadarenes Son of God Power of Demons Authority, Advancing Kingdom We experience great financial loss

14 A Very Costly Discipleship How much are we willing to allow before the movement of God is too expensive to remain? Shoes? 10%? 50%? 401K? Sallie Mae? Home?

15 Pauls Gospel Price: Acts As we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners much gain by fortune-telling. 17She followed Paul and us, crying out, These men are servant of the Most High God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation. 18And this she kept doing for many days. Paul, having become greatly annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And it came out that very hour. 19But when her owners saw that their hope of gain was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace before the rulers. 20And when they had brought them to the magistrates, they said, These men are Jews, and they are disturbing our city. 21They advocate customs that are not lawful for us as Romans to accept or practice. 22The crowd joined in attacking them

16 Pauls Gospel Price: Acts 19 Acts 19: 23About that time there arose no little disturbance concerning the Way. 24For a man named Demetrius, a silversmith, who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought no little business to the craftsmen. 25These he gathered together, with the workmen in similar trades, and said, Men, you know that from this business we have our wealth. 26And you see and hear that not only in Ephesus but in almost all of Asia this Paul has persuaded and turned away a great many people, saying that gods made with hands are not gods. 27And there is danger not only that this trade of ours may come into disrepute but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis may be counted as nothing, and that she may even be deposed from her magnificence, she whom all Asia and the world worship. 32Now some cried out one thing, some another, for the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had come together.

17 The Advent of Kingdom Kingdom is advancing – We see that in Acts: similarities of stories, accounts, movements Affects the disciples Chapters 8 & 9 will end with Jesus noting the workers are few…

18 Kingdom of Heaven is like Matthew 13: The Kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it..
