This article offers some expository notes on Matthew 12:25-30.
The purpose of this article is to re-examine some aspects of the kingdom of God, especially in the light of certain evidence about the Son of Man, and the relation of the kingdom to Jesus' person and mission. It focuses on two logia in the Beelzebul controversy as presented in Matthew 12:25-32 and its parallels in Mark 3:23-30 and Luke 11:17-30 and Luke 12:10,3.
Many Christians wrestle with the question of whether they have blasphemed against the Holy Spirit. It is understood to be the unpardonable sin (see Matthew 12:32; Mark 3:29; Luke 12:10; Hebrews 6:4–5; Hebrews 10:26). The author proceeds to look at what has been said about this sin in past times and also in the present.
Matthew 12:29 shows that Christ has come to destroy Satan. The result of this victory is that Satan cannot rule the Christian heart. Through the Holy Spirit, believers are able to conquer Satan. As a result of the cross, the gospel can be preached and people can be drawn from the kingdom of darkness into God's kingdom.
