Judas rubbed his goosebumped arms, chilled. Jesus had spoken to them about this very thing. After He saves and delivers a man, the demon that once possessed him, will leave, but roaming about, seeing that there is no other place for him, he returns, and finding the man unoccupied, he brings 7 more demons worse then he was and re-enters the victim, thus the man's fate worse than at the beginning. A dire warning. But, he'd never thought he'd see it.

"Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit!" Jesus thundered.

"Don't send us away out of the country," the man's voice changed again, his eyes rolling in the back of his head, reopening, glazed as he glanced around. Nearby close to the mountains where the graveyard was men herded swine, their livelihood. "Send us into the swine, we will enter them!"

"Go!"

At His command, the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea

At His command, the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

Banb looked at his companions in utter shock. This could not have just happened! His herd squealed in the depths, far beyond what he could do to retrieve them. He fled into the city to relate what was going on.

It didn't take long for the town to come out to see the scene. Ubel, sat, clothed and in his right mind before Jesus, and they were afraid.

A man's life bound so deep in the horror and depths of sin overlooked. A man's soul, delivered, uncared for. Swine had perished instead of a man. "Leave! Get out of here! We don't want you!" They urged Jesus to leave.

"Jesus," Ubel's voice was soft, even as he stroked the material that covered healed scars, "Can I come with you?"

"No, Ubel, go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee

"No, Ubel, go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee."

Ubel departed and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.
