The Dry Places, Matthew

Matthew 12:43 Amp

43 But when the unclean spirit has gone out of a man, it roams through dry [arid places] in search of rest, but it does not find any.

24 When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person it roams through, waterless places in search of rest (release, refreshment, ease) and finds none it says, I will go back to my house from which I came.

This chapter will discuss demon issues in Dry Places. The writer Matthew expresses how unclean spirits leave out of a man. He doesn’t mention whether they were cast out or just left on their own for transference purposes. Yet, when they left they roamed around awhile. Where did they roam? Dry, arid, waterless or (lifeless) places, that’s where.

What are Dry Places?

The Dictionary/Thesaurus defines dry as waterless, devoid, deficient in moisture, arid, barren, and UN garnished. Because these two verses and reference definitions were unclear to me, I asked the Lord to give me understanding. Often hearing other believers binding, casting out demons and sending them to the Dry Places I wondered, “What are these places?” He began teaching me that Dry Places are temporally dwelling places for demon spirits.
