Who Dare Accuse You

        Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.  Romans 8:33

That’s a good question. This question literally means who or what can bring an accusation against God’s chosen? Who can accuse us?

When they brought the woman caught in adultery to Jesus, He told the accusers to cast stones if they haven’t broken the law. When they left, Jesus turned to her and asked, “Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?” (John 8:10)

“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” (Revelation 12:10) The devil is always accusing. He’s either saying you’re a dirty rotten sinner, or you aren’t praying, fasting, and going to church enough.

The implied answer, is no. No one can accuse you. Why? Because you are called, justified, and glorified. God has justified you. You are righteous. You are in right standing with God through Jesus who God delivered up on the cross for you. Who can accuse you if God says you are righteous? If God says you are justified, then you are. That doesn’t mean we always do things right, but when God looks at us, He sees Jesus who always does things right.

If you feel accused, then you are allowing the accuser to make false accusations against you. God is not accusing you because He made you righteous. If God sees you right then He can’t accuse you of wrong. God will never lay any charge to His chosen people. Never feel accused or condemned. Next verse we will see that as well.

You are the forgiven. Your sins have been forgiven, past, present, and future. Don’t allow old sloe-foot to bring up any old junk in your past. Don’t allow anyone or anything to bring a charge against you. You are God’s elect.
