Well, this didn’t happen to the Seven Sons of Sceva! (Acts 19:14-16) They were beaten up by one man with a demon and ran out of the house with no clothes on!
It just shows, God is God.
Maybe God is more gracious than we allow?
Here the man was sincere, albeit an unbeliever. The Seven Sons were professionals and the name of Jesus was just another powerful name they could invoke, along with many others, in their deliverance procedures. Their practice was magic, not faith.
And that’s a good question.
Can an unbeliever have faith? ?
If so, what was his faith in?
Or maybe it was the faith of the team that God was blessing?
I love what Lozi did – it was “out there”, it was testing the comfort zone, it was outrageous.
Isn’t that what life in the Spirit, a life of faith is meant to be?
