“[The evil spirit said,] I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked him saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying out with a loud voice, came out of him. And they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, "What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him."
Here we see the glory of God himself in the Gospel of Mark 1:25. No mere man commands such authority that even the demons recognize him as God. No mere man commands such authority that even the demons obey. No mere man commands such authority as to forgive your sins. This is God revealed to us in Jesus!
