Gaining ascendancy

Mark 9:29 "And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting."

Mark 9:14-29 (NKJV)
A Boy Is Healed
14 And when He came to the disciples, He saw a great multitude around them, and scribes disputing with them. 15 Immediately, when they saw Him, all the people were greatly amazed, and running to Him, greeted Him.
16 And He asked the scribes, “What are you discussing with them?”
17 Then one of the crowd answered and said, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit.
18 And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not.”
19 He answered him and said, “O faithless[a] generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I [b]bear with you? Bring him to Me.”
20 Then they brought him to Him. And when he saw Him, immediately the spirit convulsed him, and he fell on the ground and wallowed, foaming at the mouth.
21 So He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?”
And he said, “From childhood. 22 And often he has thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him. But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.”
23 Jesus said to him, “If[c] you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “Deaf and dumb spirit, I command you, come out of him and enter him no more!”
26 Then the spirit cried out, convulsed him greatly, and came out of him. And he became as one dead, so that many said, “He is dead.”
27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose.
28 And when He had come into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?”
29 So He said to them, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer [d]and fasting.”

Mark 9:19 unbelieving
Mark 9:19 put up with
Mark 9:23 NU “ ‘If You can!’ All things
Mark 9:29 NU omits and fasting

Prayer and fasting does not drive certain demons out.
If the name of Jesus and faith in His name won't do the job, then fasting and prayer won't either. Jesus is saying that fasting and prayer are the only ways of casting out this type of unbelief.

An unbelief that comes as a result of ignorance can be done away with by receiving the truth of God's Word
(Rom. 10:17; 2 Pet. 1:4).
However, the unbelief that hindered the disciples in this case was a "natural" type of unbelief.

They had been taught all of their lives to believe what their five senses told them.
They were simply dominated by this natural input more than by God's supernatural input
(God's Word). The only way to overcome this unbelief that comes through our senses is to deny our senses through prayer and fasting.

{Unbelief thru the diversion of our 5 senses has distracted many people - leaning on Fasting and Prayer will help reinforce our efforts for Spiritual victories!}
( note by blogger)

Fasting accomplishes many things. One of the greatest benefits of fasting is that through denying the lusts of the flesh, the spirit man gains ascendancy.

Fasting has always been used as a means of seeking God to the exclusion of all else.
Fasting does not cast out demons but rather, it casts out unbelief.

Fasting is beneficial in every aspect of the Christian life - not only in the casting out of devils.

The real virtue of a fast is in humbling ourselves through self denial
(Ps. 35:13; 69:10), and that can be accomplished through ways other than total abstinence. Partial fasts can be beneficial, as well as fasts of our time or pleasures. However, because the appetite for food is one of man's strongest drives, fasting from food seems to get the job done the quickest.

Fasting should be a much more important part of our seeking God.

**{Learn to use it to bolster and strengthen your faith! Because if you can get past your inter human hangup in Spiritual matters - then fasting and prayer is the only way to connect with God!} ** (note by Blogger)
