Can Unbelief be ‘Cast Out’ Like Demons?

One of the prominent features of Jesus’ earthly ministry was the casting out of demons. It clearly demonstrated Christ’s power over sin, death and the devil. And there was nothing Satan or his demonic cohorts could do to stop it.

Here are some examples:

When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to Him, and He drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. Matthew 8:16

Some distance from them a large herd of pigs was feeding. The demons begged Jesus, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.” He said to them, “Go!” So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water. Matthew 8:30-32

A man who was demon-possessed and could not talk was brought to Jesus. And when the demon was driven out, the man who had been mute spoke. Matthew 9:32,33

Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons, but He would not let the demons speak because they knew who He was. Mark 1:34

So Jesus traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. Mark 1:39

In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an evil spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, “Ha! 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!” “Be quiet!” Jesus said sternly. “Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him. Luke 4:33-35

Demons came out of many people, shouting, “You are the Son of God!” But He rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew He was the Christ. Luke 4:41

Jesus said, “If I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come to you.” Luke 11:20
