Mark Chapter: 3 Verses: 22-30
It is the end of Satan
The scribes who had come down from Jerusalem were saying: ‘Beelzebul is in him’ and, ‘it is through the prince of devils that he casts devils out.’ So Jesus called them to him and spoke to them in parables, ‘How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that household can never stand. Now if Satan has rebelled against himself and is divided, he cannot stand either - it is the end of him. But no-one can make his way into a strong man’s house and burgle his property unless he has tied up the strong man first. Only then can he burgle his house.
‘I tell you the Truth everyone’s sin will be forgiven, and all their blasphemies: but let anyone blaspheme against the Holy Spirit and they will never have forgiveness: they are guilty of an eternal sin.’ This was because they were saying, ‘An unclean spirit is in him.’
This is the Gospel of the Lord
