The Divided Kingdom – Matthew 12:24-30; Deeper Meaning

Matthew 12: 24-30 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house. “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.

In this blog post, I’m going to talk about the deeper meaning behind The Divided Kingdom parable. This parable was given by Jesus when He was talking with the Pharisees at the temple. They were asking Him how he had the right to cast out demons, and they were calling him the Prince of Demons, and with this parable, He explained why they were wrong. In this blog post, I’m going to explain the meaning of the parable, why Jesus used the examples given, why He spoke in Parables, and how people reacted to this parable.

Let’s start about where this whole parable was spoken. Jesus had just healed a demon-possessed man in front of the Pharisees. Now the Pharisees hated Jesus, and they denied all the miracles He performed, and the prophecies He fulfilled. They didn’t want to acknowledge the signs and wonders He performed, such as the one where He healed the Demon-possessed man. When He healed the man, they said that He was a prince of demons, and that’s why He could command the demons.
