Jesus is acknowledged by the unclean spirits to have the power to destroy them, therefore he must be God. This power belongs to God alone

Mark 1 v

Jesus Expels an Evil Spirit

(Luke 4:31-37)

21 And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. 22 And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. 23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out,

24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God.

25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. 26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. 27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.28 And immediately his fame spread abroad throughout all the region round about Galilee.

    That is the most ridiculous argument. Aren’t demons considering Satan as their God, king and lord, along with Beelzebub as his son and prince as well? Have not the demons feared Satan’s punitive power as well?

    The folly of making Satan as one’s defender (Devil advocate) is that it is like shooting oneself in own foot.
    (i) If Satan defends you, it means you are a part of his sinful flocks.

    (ii) Satan is a chief of liars, hence the truth must be what opposes his words, meaning the more he justifies you the more you get exposed to be wrong.

    (iii) That’s desperate tactics of consolation after failing to seek more competent defenders. One should have preferred to be defended by the good people first.
