Jesus certainly can’t be in league with Satan or under Satan’s control if He is able to drive out demons.

     14 And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered. 15 But some of them said, He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils. 16 And others, tempting him, sought of him a sign from heaven. 17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth. 18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. 19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. 20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. 21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: 22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. 23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. 24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. 25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. 26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.(KJV)

1. This is the day the Lord hath made; 
He calls the hours His own; 
Let heaven rejoice, let earth be glad 
And praise surround the throne. 

2. Today He rose and left the dead. 
And Satan’s empire fell; 
Today the saints His triumphs spread 
And all His wonders tell. 

3. Hosanna to th’ anointed King 
To David’s holy Son! 
Help us, O Lord; descend and bring 
Salvation from the throne. 

4. Blest be the Lord, who comes to men 
With messages of grace; 
Who comes in God His Father’s name 
To save our sinful race. 

5. Hosanna in the highest strains 
The Church on earth can raise. 
The highest heavens, in which He reigns, 
Shall give Him nobler praise.
