Jesus came to save sinners, therefore as former sinners the Accuser of our soul seeks to condemn us for those things we did in our past life.
Once we have come to God through belief in Jesus Christ we need to learn how to stand against the Accuser otherwise we will quickly lose all assurance of our salvation.
One of the greatest weapons God has given us and the most precious of all is the availability of the blood of Jesus.
The blood testifies on our behalf like a defense lawyer
The blood of Jesus Christ speaks and declares. Yes the blood cries out on our behalf as evidence in the Court of heaven. Jesus blood shed for the remission of our sins declares boldly before God’s throne that we are innocent of all charges.
In fact His blood shed for us testifies that we do not even have a connection with that former self who committed such things.
When the Accuser comes to remind you of your sins lift up your voice and declare that Jesus blood is evidence you are innocent.
When Cain killed his brother Abel we are told that blood “cries out” and “blood speaks”.
- Heb 12:22a-24 But you have come…to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Abel’s blood cried out for justice to be served upon his brother. Jesus blood speaks better things than that. Jesus blood cries RECONCILED, JUSTIFIED, FORGIVEN.
Gen 4:10 And He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground.
Gen 4:11 So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.
Heb 9:13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh,
Heb 9:14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Heb 10:19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Heb 10:20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh,
Heb 10:21 and having a High Priest over the house of God,
Heb 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Heb 10:23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.
The blood of Jesus is the very Life force of the Son of God…who can resist it?
Because Jesus poured out His soul(life, blood)unto death in bearing the iniquities of us all God has Highly exalted Jesus and promised to draw or drag all people to Him.
The more the enemy accuses us the more we trust and preach the blood of Jesus.
In the end this is working powerfully to overcome the Accuser so that the Gospel prevails mightily in the heavens and the earth.
The wickedness of man stirred up by fallen rebellious angels shall only cause such a great outpouring of God’s Spirit that the BLOOD of JESUS shall cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.
