Satan is the Father of Lies and the Accuser of the brethren. Satan has been cast down out of Heaven, and therefore he cannot and does not accuse us there. Christ is there now, as our advocate. But between now and the end of the world, the Devil does prowl around seeking whom he may devour with his lies and accusations.
On the one hand, Jesus said that He will keep all that the Father has given Him, and no one, not even the Devil can snatch a single one of us out of Christ’s omnipotent hand. On the other hand, we know that Christ keeps His own by working in them vigilance and faith.
So putting this together, our task in resisting the devil’s lies and accusations is simply putting on Christ – Christ is your complete armor. The only answer, but the complete answer to the lies and accusations of Satan is Christ died for me and Christ lives for me. And as you practice putting on Christ, Christ protects you from all lies and accusations.
As you practice confession and forgiveness, and putting the armor of Christ on, the lies and accusations of the devil become quieter and fainter. Christ died for that, for that, for that… Everyone in this room has enough sin to give the Devil material to work with for eternity, if we let Him. But we won’t because Christ holds us, and Christ protects us. All the lies and accusations bounce off us because Christ died for all our sins and rose to make us new. His blood has made us completely clean and now no charges against us can stick.
So come and welcome to Jesus Christ.
