WHO DARES ACCUSE

Broadcast 3705
Romans 8:33-34 (NLT) Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. 34 Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God's right hand, pleading for us.

If you read the book of Job you will understand that Satan accuses people so that he can afflict them. Satan does not have the license to afflict God’s people unless he has successfully accused them before the throne of God. He loves to send his accusations against our consciences so that we can feel condemned. He also accuses people before the throne of God so that he can receive a license to afflict them because of their iniquity.

If the devil can succeed in making you feel condemned before God, then he has succeeded in one step of his program to afflict. He knows he cannot condemn you any longer before God because Jesus Christ is sitting there speaking for you. Because of the sacrifice of Christ, Satan can no longer do anything to cause God to withdraw His protection, mercy, grace and blessings from us.

Since Satan cannot stop God from blessing us, he tries to stop us from accessing God’s grace and blessing. He understands that no one approaches God’s throne without confidence and boldness, so he tries to accuse us to the extent that we lose our confidence to access God’s throne of grace and mercy where we continually obtain mercy and grace to overcome his wiles.

As you go into today, know that Satan cannot successfully accuse you before God if you abide under the authority of Christ, the only thing he can do now is to send his accusations to your conscience to make you feel guilty and unable to access God’s glorious resources that are available to you at the expense of Christ Jesus. Don’t let that happen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
