The Harm of Division

The Pharisees declared that Jesus cast demons out of people by the power of the ruler of the demons. However, Jesus argued that the ruler of the demons would never do such a thing, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand” (Matthew 12:25).
Satan, the ruler of the demons, knows that truth. He would not divide and fight against himself, at least unless he did not realize what he was doing. In this case, he would not have given power to Jesus for Him to cast demons out of people. Satan wanted to possess as many people as possible.
Therefore, the Pharisees made a false charge against Jesus. If He did not cast demons out of people by the power of Satan, by whom did Jesus cast them out? He did it by the power of God!
Do you understand what it means to say that Jesus is the Son of God?
