Where Are Your Accusers?

“Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, ‘Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.'”  Revelation 12:10 

Father, we thank you that the shed blood of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ overcomes the power of our accuser.  We thank you for the 11 women who were set free and transformed this past weekend by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony. We thank you that the accuser no longer has any hold over them and that they will not listen to the voice of the accuser any longer.  We pray that Your beloved will know Your voice and follow You only.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

The commentary in my Bible states the following:  “The angels did not overcome the Accuser alone, the saints were in partnership through prayer-warfare; the angels were God’s means for administering the victory, which prayer enforced.”  Thank you for your prayers!!!  We felt them and lives were changed this weekend through them! 

In John, Chapter 8, we meet a girl caught in sin.  Dirty. Ashamed. Beaten. Accused.

Her accusers pushed her face down into the dust in front of Jesus.  Their true motives were to test Jesus seeking to accuse Him and defraud His identity.  The only problem…no one can defraud the reality of the identity of Christ.  How did Jesus respond to these accusers?  “Then, Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.

The finger of God came down to defend His daughter and He shunned the voice of her accusers.  

I often have wondered what Jesus wrote.  Did he write a note with words of loving forgiveness to the woman?  Did he write a scripture about God’s mercy?  Did he write a list of the accusers’ sins or perhaps the names of their girlfriends?  Jesus stood up and firmly said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.”  Hmmm…funny.  No one raced to go grab a stone.  No one eagerly stood up in response to His challenge. 

Instead, they left.  One by one her accusers left until she was alone with Jesus.  “He said to her, ‘Woman, where are those accusers of yours?  Has no one condemned you?’ She said, ‘No one, Lord,’ And Jesus said to her, ‘Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.'”   

Our accuser would like nothing better than to defraud the name of Jesus.  Jesus doesn’t accuse us.  When the enemy can get us to agree with him that Jesus condemns us, he is indeed seeking to disprove Jesus and claim that He is our accuser.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Jesus defends His daughters and raises them out of the dirt.  He carried away our shame on the cross. He was beaten so we could be made whole and healed.  He was accused so we could be acquitted.

The 11 women that came last weekend found out who Jesus was first hand.  They overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.  I praise the Lord for the healing power of His Holy Spirit this weekend.  His angelic forces fought on behalf of His daughters and your prayers joined their forces to gain the victory.  His glory rested on us and these 11 women left Sunday…

Redeemed. Beautiful. Rejoicing. Radiant.

It’s time to find the freedom you deserve.
