The Shrewdness of Satan

Satan epitomizes evil, but he is shrewd, as Jesus explained when His enemies claimed that He cast demons out of people by the power of Satan, “If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand?” (Matthew 12:26).
Satan would not openly display a work against himself, for he knows that if he is divided, his kingdom will not stand. Therefore, even Satan seeks unity among his followers.
For this reason, we know that Jesus did not use satanic power to cast demons out of people. Yet, He clearly had power beyond man. The only other alternative is that Jesus used divine power, the power of God.
Jesus is the Son of God, and we must believe in Him with all our hearts to be saved from this demon-infested world.
