Jesus vs. Satan: They are NOTHING alike!

Standard

Jesus gives us the command to NOT speak blasphemy about the Holy Spirit, and if you do then you will NEVER be forgiven. What does that look like, or sound like? Or what does that mean? In the Gospel of Mark is where we find this command that Jesus gives us, but it is not the command that is the bulk of the message that Jesus is getting at, it is the parables right before the command.

“And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, “He is possessed by Beelzebul,” and “by the prince of demons he casts out the demons.” And he called them to him and said to them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but is coming to an end. But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. Then indeed he may plunder his house.” Mark 3:22-27

These parables are the KEY to understanding the meat of what Jesus is trying to get across to the Scribes. Jesus makes that analogies about division and how one CAN NOT do or be the other. That is EXACTLY what Jesus is saying here. Satan CAN NOT cast out Satan, so DO NOT put that ability onto a God that is FOR THE GOOD of PEOPLE. A house that is divided WILL NOT last, because of the division that as occurred; same with a Kingdom.

For what Jesus is saying here, is that it is NOT the Son of Man who set spiritual forces into people, or divides Kingdom to watch them fall, or households to see them fail. The Son of Man is here is CAST OUT demons, and TO BUILD UP Kingdoms and Households for the Glory of the Lord. Satan can not stand against the power that the Lord has, and is here on Earth to destroy things, not to BUILD them up.

Because Jesus had VICTORY over the Satan in the wilderness, when Satan attempted to have Jesus become something that Jesus in not (Matt. 4:1-11), Satan is POWERLESS to preventing Jesus from relaying the Good News. Jesus is the POWER and the PRESENCE that BUILDS. Satan is the POWERLESS, that tries to DESTROY.

God or Jesus gave the scribes the command right after these parables, “that whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit (or God) never has forgiveness, but is guilty of eternal sin. (Mark 3:29) God doesn’t want to be attributed to the things of Satan that destroys or tempts, or that what the Holy Spirit is doing is not of God but of Satan. Call things as they are, if they are BUILDING, FULFILLING, OR OF THE WORD OF GOD, then they are GOD or the HOLY SPIRIT.

Do not put a label to something IS NOT the truth. Man does not like it, and either does the Almighty God.

“Or how can someone enter a strong man’s house (Satan and this World) and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man (Jesus coming into this World & having Victory over Satan)?” Matthew 12:29
