10:1922). Let us thank God that in His infinite grace He has rent this Veil also: "God hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (II Cor. 5:21). Let us not, then, seek to patch it up again, going back under law, entangling ourselves again with the yoke of bondage, as though Christ had not paid the full penalty for sin to open the way to God for us. Let us rather rejoice that in place of the fearsome and disappointing sight which the priests of old saw as the veil in the temple was rent, we see a broad way opened into the presence of God and especially "consecrated" to our use!
We read of the one in this passage: "Then goeth he and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself” (Ver. 45). In Matt. " In Luke 8:2 we find that seven demons had been cast out of Mary Magdalene. Whether or not it is altogether just to associate her former life with impurity, as is so often done, this much is clear, that demons in Scripture are constantly described by such words as wicked, evil, foul, unclean [impure], etc. Probably they were guilty of all kinds of sin. In the context of the passage before us it is important to notice that these demons were the representatives of Beelzebub, the prince of the demons.
Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? " --Luke 13:6-9. Some believe that these three years refer to the ministries of John the Baptist (Matt. 3:1,2), the Lord Jesus (Matt. 4:17) and Peter (Acts 3:19-21), and that the added year refers to Paul's ministry among the Jews. This view, however, leaves questions which to us seem insurmountable. Paul may indeed have wished for fruit from national Israel and did seek it among individual Israelites, but the casting away of national Israel had already begun with the raising up of Paul.
