THE ACCUSER DEAFEATED

IAN JOHNSON

Jul 22, 2005

THE ACCUSER DEAFEATED Weapons of our warfare series 2005

When I was a young Christian I belonged to a Church that worked through control and fear. Fear that we would miss the mark, fear that we weren’t saved and so on, In hind sight I can see that the leaders didn’t have a good concept of the love of God themselves and were just projecting that into their congregation.

The enemy, Satan, is the accuser of the brethren. He causes us to accuse one another in order to bring division, and also he attempts to divide us away from God by making us feel we are not good enough, or we don’t fit the mold, or God could never love me! He does this in order to convince us that we, in some way have disqualified ourselves from the race.

There are two basic reasons that we were created. 1) To have fellowship with God 2) To be a representative for God on Earth and to show His glory.

Through the fall in the Garden, satan was able to break the link and he interrupted the plan. But in and through Jesus God has restored the potential to fulfil these callings again

All who have been born again through Jesus can again experience the reality of fellowship with God, and the privilege of showing off His kingdom, and demonstrating His glory

Satan fights against all who walk in these callings in different ways and at different levels. He deceives the unbeliever by binding their minds from the truth of the Gospel, which would restore them to God.

2 Corinthians 4:4

Satan, the god of this evil world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe, so they are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News that is shining upon them. They don’t understand the message we preach about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. However against believers who have navigated past this blockage and pose a very real threat to satans kingdom, He lifts up accusations of past mistakes or Gods current displeasure.

The primary message that God communicated to man through Jesus is Ï LOVE YOU" The realisation of Gods love for us was lost when our soul was awakened to the Knowledge of Good & evil in the Garden of Eden. It was at this point that our soul became susceptible to the accusations of Satan.

We were no longer covered by Gods glory ~ So we tried to cover ourselves (Leaves) by doing good and trying to avoid evil

This morning I had two people like this come to my door, they were more interested in earning their salvation by going door to door, rather than accepting the forgiveness offered in Jesus by grace When we received Christ we are made secure by His blood and are covered by his glory. When we are covered by His glory we don’t look at the natural, we see Jesus! You cannot see Jesus without seeing Gods love, and when you truly see Gods love you see his forgiveness, and in this forgiveness the accuser is overcome!

Until we are secure in Gods love we are vulnerable to attack from the enemy because our confidence is in ourselves! When our confidence is transferred to Gods love, which is expressed in Jesus we are made secure.
