FALSE ACCUSATIONS

July 20, 2016

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.

 

 

LESSON

 

John then heard another outburst of praise in heaven. Their rejoicing is largely proleptic, anticipating what will follow the expulsion of Satan. God’s “salvation”, the manifestation of His “power,” and His “kingdom”, will have come even closer when this happens. Likewise, the manifestation of “the authority” of “His Anointed One (Christ)” will be nearer. The way will then be more open than it was previously for the establishment of God’s kingdom on the earth. Satan’s malevolent work of accusing believers, unrelentingly and “before God,” will cease. However, he will continue to persecute the living brethren of the martyrs, who are still on earth, even though he can no longer accuse them in heaven. Satan “accuses” believers “day and night”, just as steadily as the four living beings praise God.

We are living in a season of great spiritual opportunities. How do we take advantage of those opportunities and live a life of spiritual victory. We can either trust in the Lord to give us the clean, fresh robes of righteousness, or we can put ourselves through the wringer, in attempt to create our own self-righteousness and still be clothed in filthy rags.
Memory Verse: Exodus 20:16
