As we continue our Tell Me the Story of Jesus adventure ... We've learned about many times Jesus healed people on the Sabbath, and how the Pharisees and scribes felt that He was wrong to do so. Let's see what they're up to now in our, A House Divided Bible story.

A House Divided Bible Fear of a Divided House

A House Divided Cannot Stand

The fame of Jesus was spreading widely throughout the land. As Jesus was traveling, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us. And when He went into a house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus said to them, Do you believe that I'm able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord. Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it done to you. And their eyes were opened; and Jesus immediately told them, See that no man know it.

But, when they left, they spread the news in all that country. As Jesus left, they brought to Him a dumb man possessed with a devil. And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spoke: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, We've never seen anything like this in Israel.

Let's take a House Divided Bible field trip. Jesus is still performing miracles and the wannabe Religious leaders of the time (living in fear of Jesus being real and therefore, there not being need of their services any longer) are still making a fuss. Now, had they chose to hear and adhere to the Words of Jesus instead of creating a divided house, knowing that a house divided cannot stand, thereby choosing to divide the people ... They could have been on the right side of history. Just a House Divided Bible tidbit for you to ponder upon ...

Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they were weak, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. So, He said to His disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray to the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into His harvest.

There was a man who was possessed by the devil who was brought to Jesus. The man was also blind and couldn't speak either, so Jesus cast out the devil and healed the man so that he could see and speak. It amazed people and they commented, Isn't this the son of David? (They meant a son of the bloodline of king David.) Again, they couldn't believe that a local boy could do these things. The crowds gathered together again and Jesus healed many.

Get ready for this, A House Divided Bible story to get wild. Jesus and the disciples hadn't eaten because there were so many who wanted to be healed and virtue left Jesus because everyone wanted to touch Him to be made well. The disciples heard that He was not Himself because of the strength that had left Him and they came to hold Him up because He lost balance. But when the scribes that came down from Jerusalem saw, they said, He has Beelzebub, and by the prince of the demons He casts out devils.

Those listening were a divided house. They thought to themselves ... What is this, Beelzebub? How can that be? Beelzebub is a fallen angel ranking up there next to Satan. Another tidbit from our A House Divided Bible story ... He doesn't even deserve his name to be written with a capital letter at the beginning, and we don't think Satan deserves as much recognition either, but for grammar's sake, we'll capitalize it. 😏

Now, back to a house divided cannot stand journey. You know when you're really tired and you haven't eaten, how you can appear not to have your wits about you? Your speech may not be as crisp as when you're feeling rested and your eyes may be dim. Your head may nod and your reflexes may be slower than normal. And perhaps you've seen in movies how when a devil is cast out of someone, the exorcist is truly worn out with fatigue from the loss of virtue.

Well, just imagine, Jesus had been healing many people, casting out many devils, and couldn't even so much as eat bread because of the multitudes of people. You'd think that walking a straight line after such a day wouldn't be expected of Him, but the scribes were accusing Him of casting out devils in the name of the devil instead of in the name of God because of His weariness. That's quite an insult.

Jesus knew that the Pharisees and the scribes were thinking these things, and He called them over to Him and said, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. That means that when there is conflict among the people of a kingdom, that kingdom will end, and a family who is divided against itself (is in conflict with one another) will not survive. Therefore ... Simple math suggests that a house divided cannot stand.

A House Divided Bible Point of Interest ... Then Jesus said, And if Satan fights against Satan, he is divided against himself. How then, can his kingdom last? And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. (If the scribes and Pharisees believe that the Son of God casts out devils in the name of Satan, then the children (families) of the scribes and Pharisees must believe that Satan has the power to cast out devils, so the devil will be their judge (their god). The Pharisees and scribes did believe in God however, so if they believe that devils can be cast out in the name of Satan, they are a house divided and will not survive.) But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God is come unto you. (Thy Kingdom come.) Then it would not be a divided house.

No man can enter a strong man's house and steal from him unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he will rob his house. Whoever isn't with me is against me and whoever doesn't gather with me, scatters abroad.

A House Divided Bible Trivia Question ... What was Jesus saying to these Pharisees seeking a divided house scribes and Pharisees about a house divided? I mean what does A house divided cannot stand mean spiritually? First of all, remember that they were waiting like lions to pounce on Jesus for anything He did or said so they could accuse Him. They were trying to discredit Jesus (tying up the strong man) so they could make the people believe them (rob his house). They were definitely not with Him, so that makes them divided against Him. And they surely weren't gathering with Him (sharing the Gospel) but scattering abroad (bringing doubt).

The Prodigal Son

Luke 15:11-32

11 And He said, A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against Heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

God loves us all and wants His lost children to come home. Be sure not to attempt to block them in vain by creating a divided house and beware doing the same within your own household as it is certain that a house divided cannot stand. I hope you choose to hear and adhere what was shared in this ... A house divided Bible warning.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
