Wouldn’t it be nice if all the demons around us were our subjects; that is, in our control? Frankly, it would be far better if the demons within us were in our control. We all have dark sides some would call demonic inclining us towards deception, dishonesty, falsehoods, and egotistical behavior. The dark side can be out of control, sort of like Darth Vader sabering and shredding the good within us.
We need the power or force recognized by Yoda in Luke to tread upon the serpents and scorpions seeking to harm us. Jesus has given that to us like a light saber, full-force striking Satan causing him to fall and be gone, at least temporarily.
As Mel Gibson said to his baseball bat-wielding brother in the 2002 movie "Signs" about hostile, outer space, evil creatures: “Swing away!”
