Satan Would Not Fight Against Himself

Scribes claimed that Jesus cast out demons by the power of Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons, or Satan himself. Jesus demolished that argument, “So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: ‘How can Satan cast out Satan?'” (Mark 3:23).
Satan would not cast himself out, that is, he would not cast out one of his own. Satan is the epitome of evil, but he is also intelligent. He wants his kingdom to grow, not shrink and so he would not cast out his own helpers who have inhabited people. Therefore, the people could know that Jesus worked by the Holy Spirit of God!
When you see someone defeating evil, do not conclude that the worker is evil.
