Who is the Accuser of the Brethren?

Have you ever been wrongfully accused of something? Maybe the accusations you’ve experienced have been from someone you know. Maybe they’re your own accusations. Voices in your head- a broken refrain of ways you aren’t enough, or maybe even too much. Both are painful. Both threaten to keep you stuck in a mire of self doubt and shame. 

I dealt with untrue accusations this week and it rocked me, sending feelings of worthlessness and ugliness straight into my core. 

But I was reminded this week by my father of a scripture in revelation: “Now have come salvation and power....for the ACCUSER of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been HURLED down.” 


The Accuser 

of our brothers and sisters has been hurled down. 

And so I ask, who is your accuser? It’s certainly not Christ who comes to set us free, to redeem our brokenness, and fill us with his power to travel light (not weighed down by accusation) toward his calling on our lives. 

When I hear those accusations whisper, I will remember this promise. The accuser is defeated.
