Overcoming the Accuser

Today is Maundy Thursday as we continue to think on what Jesus did for us on the Cross.

(And, yes, dear readers, I just discovered that I posted the same 
thing twice putting me a  day behind schedule! Perhaps I will post two today...)

Satan’s most strategic activity in this day is the accuser of the brethren.
See Rev. 12:10. The Blood of Jesus operates against Satan by putting
God on the side of man against our enemy.
“God is in the light, and as we walk in the light with Him everything is
exposed and open to that light, so that God can see it all--and yet,
the Blood is able to cleanse from every sin.” What a cleansing!
(IJohn 1:7 Darby)
Satan accuses us before God. God points to the Blood of His dear
Son and says, “Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s
elect? It is God that justifies; who is he that shall condemn? It is
Christ Jesus that died, yea rather, that was raised from the dead,
who is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.”
(Romans 8:34)
Our faith in the precious Blood and our refusal to be moved from
that position can silence the charges and put our enemy to flight.
