(Jesus) Matthew 12:21-32, House divided cannot stand, the unforgivable sin

(This is a general interpretation of Holy Scripture. Please read the Scripture for yourself, atone for your sins through Christ, do the will of the Father our GOD, enter into the Kingdom of Heaven and ask for knoweldge, GOD will give you knowledge)

We continue with Matthew 12. In this section we read about the casting out of demons and the accusation that Christ was casting them out by the name of Satan. Yeshua (Jesus) uses sound commonsense to dispel this lie uttered by the pharisees by stating that a Kingdom divided against itself shall not stand.

Matthew 12

22. Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23. And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David?
24. But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.
25. And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26. And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27. And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28. But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
29. Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.

Lets look at Christ's statement a little deeper with regard to the fact that a Kingdom divided among itself shall not stand. We know Satan's kingdom is a kingdom of perpetual darkness and GOD's Kingdom is a Kingdom of perpetual Light. Can darkness cast out darkness? No it cannot, darkness begets darkness or creates more darkness.

Darkness and light are simply incompatible.

Matthew 12

30. He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
31. Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
32. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

This section is one of the most, if not the most, important teaching within the entire New Testament and certainly near the top of all teachings in the Bible. We see that we can deny GOD and Christ and be forgiven but blasphemy against the Holy Ghost cannot be forgiven. We will not get into the mechanics of such a sin but the best thing to do is say little in regard to the Holy Ghost accept for praise!
