Are should we understand that Jesus was indicating to these that Satan was then casted down by the enpowering of his disciples. The same as when Jesus told those Pharisees that if by the Spirit Jesus had casted out devils then the kingdom of God had come unto them.
But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. 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.
If the kingdom of God had come unto them the Pharisees, Sinners (the strong man's house) Jesus said but first one had to bind the stong man (Satan) so to spoil (take away) his goods. The imagery here is that Satan is being bounded and casted down to earth as decribed by John in Revelation 12.
I agree although I see that time is at Jesus first advent.
I believe the binding of Satan takes place after Jesus returns to rebuild the tabernacle of David, which is after the calling out of the nations a people for his name pictured by the feast of the first fruits of the Spirit, Pentecost. The return of Jesus the feast of trumpets. The binding of Satan in the day of atonement.
