6.18 They entered a house and crowds gathered again so much that they couldnt even eat. When his friends heard this, they came to take him home, for they said, “He is insane.”
Then a dumb blind demon-possessed person was brought to Jesus, who restored both his speech and sight. The amazed crowds asked,”Isnt this Davids son,1 the promised Messiah?”

Hearing this, the Pharisees and scribes from Jerusalem said, “This man expels demons by Beelzebub, prince of devils.”2

Apr 4 Jesus, knowing3 their thoughts, said to them, “How can Satan cast out Satan? A divided kingdom will not stand; and every city or home divided will fall. If Satan expels Satan, how will his divided kingdom stand? If by his power I expel demons, by whom do your sons expel them? Therefore, they will be your judges. But if I expel demons by Gods Spirit, then Gods kingdom is here among you.4 Or how can anyone enter a strong mans house and rob him without first binding him? They that are not   gathering5 with me are against me, scattering souls. I tell you, all sin and blasphemy,6 even that against the Son of man is forgivable, except whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit. He cannot be forgiven in this age or the age to come, and is guilty of an eternal sin. For they said, “He has a demon.”
