JOHN 10:10 ”The them comes only to steal, kill & destroy. I came so that they may have life & have it Abundantly
REVELATION 12:10 ” Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens, ‘It has come at last – Salvation, power & the kingdom of our Lord & the authority of his Christ. For the Accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth- the one who accuses them before our God day and night.”
JOHN 8:1-11- The woman caught in Adultery
THREE METHODS OF THE ACCUSER
The Mistakes: His aim is to deny you of God’s grace.
1 Thessalonians 3:5 ”I was afraid that the temper has gotten the best of you and that our work had been useless.”
JOHN 8:4-5 – ”Teacher, they said to Jesus, ”This woman was caught in the act of Adultery. The Law of Moses says to stone her. What do you say?
NUMBERS 32:23 – ”But if you will not do so, behold you have sinned against the Lord, and be sure your sin will find you out.”
PSALM 90:8- ”Though has set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of our countenance.
PROVERBS 5:22 – An evil man is held captive by his own sins; they are ropes that catch and hold him.”
Satan knows your name but he calls you by your sin. God knows your sin but he calls you by your name.
The way out is to seek God’s Forgiveness.
1JOHN 1:9 – ”If we confess our sins, he’s faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
ACTS 3:12-20 – ”Now repent of your sins and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped away. Then times of refreshments will come from the presence of the Lord and he’ll send again Jesus, your appointed Messiah.”
The memories: His aim is to discourage you.
JOHN 8:10 – ”Then Jesus stood up again and said to the woman, ”Where are your accusers?” Didn’t even one of them accuse you?”
2CORINTHIANS 2:10-11 ” When you forgive this man, I forgive him too. And when I forgive whatever needs to be forgiven I do so with Christ’s authority for your benefit so that Satan will not outsmart us. For we our familiar with his evil schemes.”
Accusations in itself does’nt keep people away from sinning.
1 PETER 5:8 ”Be sober minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls aroud like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.”
Satan is your adversary, Jesus is your advocate.
The way out is to walk in freedom in Christ.
ROMANS 8:1 – ”There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
JOHN 8:36 – So the Son sets you free, You’re truly free.”
ROMANS 8:31 – ”What then shall we say to these things? If God be for us then who can be against us?”
The mischief: His aim is to distract you.
JOHN 8:6 ”They were trying to trap him into saying something they could use against him but Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger.
LUKE 6:7 – ”The Teachers of the religous law and the Pharisees watched Jesus closely. If he healed the man’s hand they planned to accuse him of working on the Sabbath.
JOHN 8:44 – ”He was a Murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there’s no truth in him. When he lies he speaks his native language for he’s a liar and the father of lies.
When Satan talks to you about God he lies, when he talks to you about YOU he accuses you.
The way out is to keep your faith in Christ.
Luke 22:31-32 – Simon, Simon, Satan hast asked to sift each of you like wheat. But I’ve pleaded in prayer for you Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you’ve repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.”
