    Why did Jesus say to the man that He healed from demons stay here and tell everyone what God has done for you and the girl He raised from the dead, He told them not to tell anyone what happened?

      The likely answer is that the demon-possessed man lived on the northeast side of the Sea of Galilee. This was an area not under the authority or control of the religious authorities in Jerusalem who were Jesus’ determined enemies. He could tell everybody in his area what God had done for him through Jesus and it would not have created a problem. On the other hand on the southeast side of the Sea of Galilee the villages where Jesus grew up and many of the disciples were from, this was an area where Jesus was popular and also an area under the influence and control of the Pharisees. Jesus was careful during his ministry to avoid open confrontations that could lead to his arrest before his “hour had come”. You’ll notice this throughout the gospels that he is very careful in areas where the religious authorities from Jerusalem have a lot of influence about inciting them. He understood that eventually there would be a time when they arrested him and his passion/suffering for sin began, but he was not going to provoke that until he was finished with the things God wanted him to do, until he had spent the time preparing his disciples adequately, etc. At other places in the Gospels for example he told the woman at the well in Samaria that he was the Messiah. She was a Samaritan and they were in an area that was not under the control of the Pharisees. But Jesus carefully avoided that terminology when he was in areas where the Jewish authorities had control because he did not want to prematurely provoke them.
