VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. JESUS is not accusing us before the FATHER

"Put out of your minds the thought and do not suppose [as some of you are supposing] that I will accuse you before the Father."

If something bad happens, put in mind that it happened because: (a) consequences, (b) you violated the law of nature, and (c) it's allowed for a purpose to glorify GOD.

Luke 19:10 (Amplified Bible)

19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.

All who depend on the Law are under the curse.

Galatians 3:10 (Amplified Bible)

3:10 And all who depend on the Law [who are seeking to be justified by obedience to the Law of rituals] are under a curse and doomed to disappointment and destruction, for it is written in the Scriptures, Cursed (accursed, devoted to destruction, doomed to eternal punishment) be everyone who does not continue to abide (live and remain) by all the precepts and commands written in the Book of the Law and to practice them.

Romans 3:19-20 (Amplified Bible)

3:19 Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that [the murmurs and excuses of] every mouth may be hushed and all the world may be held accountable to God.

3:20 For no person will be justified (made righteous, acquitted, and judged acceptable) in His sight by observing the works prescribed by the Law. For [the real function of] the Law is to make men recognize and be conscious of sin [not mere perception, but an acquaintance with sin which works toward repentance, faith, and holy character].
