Matthew 9:32-38 - Now as they were going away, behold, they brought to him a demon-possessed man who was unable to speak. And after the demon had been expelled, the one who had been mute spoke, and the crowds were astonished, saying, “This has never been seen before in Israel!” But the Pharisees began to say, “By the ruler of demons he expels the demons!”

Jesus has demonstrated the ability to cure both natural ailments and demonically induced ailments, even though we may not always be able to discern the difference apart from divine guidance. But Jesus' religious contemporaries were so sure they were right, and that He was wrong, they preferred to explain His works as emanating from a source other than God. Jesus himself, however, countered this argument best when He said in Luke 11:18: “If Satan is divided against himself, how can his kingdom stand?”
