Does the Devil Know Your Name?
What does it matter if the devil knows your name?
Why would you want the devil to know your name?
Why even think about what the devil knows or doesn’t know?
Jewish men tried to cast a demon out: Acts 19. There were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who had heard how God was working through Paul. They tried to use the name of Jesus as Paul was doing to drive out an evil spirit and had an interesting conversation with a demon. In verse 15 it says: One day, the evil spirit answered them, Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you? The evil spirit beat up all seven and they ran away naked and bleeding.
Can you understand the importance of this question now?
Yup! He knows my name real well and I know his. Better than that he knows the name of Jesus as he pees in his pants in fear!

Good question and replies bloodbought. Yes, the devil knows our names as was evidenced earlier tonight by several of his demons who were trounced and bounced pretty good when they got feisty and careless.
Ignore the troublesome trolls, they get bored under the bridge. LOL.

I think the power came from the faith of Jesus and Paul, correct?
Yes. Jesus always had the power because He is God; Paul received the power because he believed fully in God and was baptized in the Holy Spirit - which is the power of God.
