Satan and evil spirits (Matthew 12:25-29)

ďAny kingdom at war with itself is doomed. A city or home divided against itself is doomed. And if Satan is casting out Satan, he is fighting against himself. His own kingdom will not survive. And if I am empowered by the prince of demons, what about your own followers? They cast our demons, too, so they will judge you for what you have said. But if I am casting demons by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God has arrived among you. Let me illustrate this. You canít enter a strong manís house and rob him without first trying him up. Only then can his house be robbed!Ē Matthew 12:25-29

At Jesusí birth, Satanís power and control were disrupted. In the wilderness Jesus overcame Satanís temptations, and at the Resurrection he defeated Satanís ultimate weaponódeath. Eventually Satan will be constrained forever, and evil will no longer pervade the earth. Jesus has complete power and authority over Satan and all his forces.
