Who’s at the top?

Here’s a puzzler: why did demons know who Jesus was while religious leaders did not? And why were they so eager to declare Who He was? In Mark 1, the account says: “So Jesus healed many people who were sick with various diseases, and he cast out many demons. But because the demons knew who he was, he did not allow them to speak.”

Had they met Him, had a run in with Him, been briefed on Him? Or did they already acknowledge Him as Lord of All? Was Jesus the adversary they had been warned about, or was He the King of Kings they had bowed down before? Since higher powers exist – angels, demons, cherubim, etc. – they know Who’s at the top.

One church at the beginning got the message from the Apostle. He said that “at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that He is Lord” — not just here on earth, but above the earth and under the earth. They, by virtue of position, had to announce who he was. Because they had already acknowledged who was at the top. And… that would be Jesus! Let that make a difference in how you pray.
