A man in their synagogue who was possessed by an impure spirit cried out, “What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” – Mark 1:23 (Mark 1:21-28)
Think on this a wee bit: even though them who heard tha Sun speaking and teaching with authority be wagging thar tongues on account of tha Sun be a carpenter and son of a carpenter, tha devil’s demons knew all thar was ter know ‘bout him.
Tha Sun be thar ter conduct business of a holy nature.
Tha Sun be from Nazareth.
Tha Sun be intent on destroying unclean spirits and tha power they held over folks.
Tha Sun be of a holy nature.
Tha unclean spirit knowed all this but them scribes who ‘ave memorized Skip’s Code hain’t nary a clue as ter who tha Sun be.
This be how things go ter day. Some smart folks who know all ‘bout tha Sun and Skipper hain’t got nary a clue as ter tha real power and purpose behind why tha pair wants ter ‘ave a relationship with us.
Ter such folks tha Sun says tha same ter them as he did ter tha unclean spirit: “Be quiet!” Then, after getting all twisted up in convulsions and confusion and crying out with a loud voice ’bout how none of tha Sun’s words, commands, and acts makes sense, such folks finally give up and fall down exhausted at tha Sun’s feet.
“Come out!” says tha Sun. Now some thinks “coming out” be ya announcing what yer gender and affections really be about and fer, but tha Sun not be talking ’bout that sort of coming out. No, his command ter “come out” be a charge for tha unclean spirit ter skedaddle from a feller , so tha poor soul kin get one step closer ter tha holiness of Skipper.
When ya come face ter face with tha Sun and see him fer who he is, ya ‘ill get a might scared, on account of ya begin ter see his holiness and power. If ya hain’t nary enjoyed such an encounter, ask tha Sun fer such a meeting. An invite like that ‘ill always be one he’ll confirm, of that ya kin be sure.
