Holy Week Consecration Day 2
Noun -a person who claims that someone has committed an offense or done something wrong
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The accuser (Satan) hates us. He hates the love the Father has for us.
So since He is unable to destroy the Father, or triumph over the Father, He tries to degrade us.
He hates us.
His weapon that he uses to degrade you is sin.
In the Garden of Eden humanity was given authority, dominion, and unlimited access to God. The accuser knew the only way to bring us from that place of victory and prominence was introducing sin. His weapon of deceit introduced sin into the world. All because of his hatred towards us!
He has hated us since he was kicked out of Heaven. And now that sin entered into the nature of man he understands that sin will always effect us, demean us, and guide us away from God.
He hates us.
With all of our mistakes, all of our mess ups and failures..
He doesn’t like the love the Father has for us.
He can’t stand the DOMINION the father has placed within our existence.
As soon as we make a mistake he laughs and points it out!
He introduces condemnation once we trip up.
That dirty rascal will entice us with it, then make us feel condemned for participating.
He is a master manipulator. “Look at what you did! How is God gonna love you now?
“How is he going to forgive you now?”
“You’re a failure”
The accuser is HAPPY to see us break covenant and even happier when we don’t return back to God.
He then tattles on you in the courtrooms of heaven. “Look at what they did!! They broke covenant!”
He consistently, AND CONSTANTLY throws our sin in the Father’s face……
BUT there is a gift….. a Gift from God. The advocate (lawyer) in the courtroom. Jesus Christ!
The accuser truly has no power over what happens with our future. That power is totally up to us! If we do fail we have Jesus who this very week, was preparing for our atonement!! Don’t let the accuser talk you out of the GIFT God gave us!! He wants us to be miserable and give up on returning back to the LORD. Don’t give the accuser the pleasure of seeing you shy away from God. Jesus is there to help you get it together and make it right!! Jesus is our lawyer……showcasing His Blood on Calvary as payment, and access, to the mercies and forgiveness of God.
Father, thank You for providing a way for my sins to be covered through our advocate and friend Jesus Christ. Thank You for an unstoppable gift! This gift that shuts the accuser’s mouth! A gift that makes the accuser look like what he REALLY IS: A JEALOUS LOSER! Cover us with the blood right now! And forgive us for any sins and trespasses against you! In Jesus Name! Amen
