Why does God Allow Satan to Accuse Believers? Part 1

 

Revelation 12 verse 9 and 10 he is continually deceiving and seduces the entire world political systems false religions idol worship hedonism and verse 10 he who accuses them and keeps bringing charges of sinful Behavior against them before our God day and night.

Can you imagine a being who can come before Almighty God and tattletale and accuse and continually bring charges against the children of God?

Accuses and continually brings charges against the children of God?

It’s interesting to realize that there is no possible justification for Satan, no possibility of forgiveness, no future redemption or glorification. Only reminders of his loss.

He lost his Beauty, his glory that God gave him, his status he lost everything and here are the Poor Pitiful, tempted, tried, imperfect, tormented, conflicted, in mature little children of God who have no idea of how far they fall short all of the glory of God.

You could even say that we saw we fall short of his glory, even minute by minute and within ourselves and our own power we are no different than Satan in nature.

What Are the Benefits of Being Grateful?

We are rebellious, prideful, obstinate, stubborn, self-sufficient and self-glorifying.

Mankind under the best of circumstances could not even together save themselves out of this other Corruption of nature.

The very fact that we are deceived and blinded about our own condition is proof enough.

And so Satan goes before God and points the finger at me Dash if he were to go over the whole list of my failures, my hypocrisies the hardness of my heart, the lack of love for you oh God, the sum total of my failures of falling short of your glory ( your attributes, character, submitting to my rightful position as a created being, to be like an reflect Jesus Christ and his example he set for us as the Son of God ( what does God Almighty say to Satan?

What is His response to these accusations?

Check back in a few weeks for the answer.

The Wise and The Foolish Virgins

The Wise and The Foolish Virgins

The Wise and The Foolish Virgins

 

The foolish are those who had oil in their lamps but none in their vessels. By the foolish in the text, therefore, we may understand those who have the light of knowledge in their heads and the lamp of profession in their hands, but no oil of grace in their hearts.

They are foolish because they know neither God nor themselves, neither sin nor salvation, neither the depth of the fall nor the greatness of the remedy.

Foolish, as regards themselves, in thinking that light and knowledge will save them, without life and grace; And they are foolish as regards others, for want of an experimental acquaintance with the heart.

They know nothing, therefore of the temptations of a child of God; how he is beset on every hand; how Satan is ever thrusting at or enticing him; how his own heart is continually prompting him to evil, and how snares are in every direction laid at his feet.

The foolish know nothing of these trials, they are Pharisees, who make clean the outside of the cup and platter, who whitewash and adorn the sepulcher (tomb) without, while within it is full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.

What Are the Benefits of Being Grateful?

David knew well, and every child of God knows well…

…that if he were allowed to slip if he were suffered to say or do anything unbecoming, these would be the very first to make him an open reproach.  

The foolish can and will make no allowances for the least slip of tongue or foot, for they are ignorant of the weakness of the flesh, the subtlety of Satan and the strength of sin, and the power of temptation.

Was he to stumble and fall, the foolish would be sure to point the finger of scorn at him?

Lord, of whatever temptations I may be called upon to endure, whatever snares of Satan or lusts of the flesh may be set my path behind in before, O keep me, keep me that I may not be the reproach of the foolish that they may have nothing to accuse You.

The story of the 10 virgins is found in Matthew 25

By the Grace of God I’ve Tried to Make the Best Of It

By the Grace of God I’ve Tried to Make the Best Of It

By the Grace of God I’ve Tried to Make the Best Of It

 

“Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.” — Psalms 25:16

 

Due to various childhood trauma and circumstances, and the unique way I responded to them, I (and I’m not going to say it was some cruel trick or predestination of God) my 66 years of life have predominantly been of longing, loneliness and affliction. 

It is what it is and by the grace of God I’ve tried to make the best of it, like a person with a handicap. I did blame God from the very beginning, even as young boy at the age of 5, but over the years realized that He, My heavenly Father, was not to blame.

I can’t blame anyone for my responses to being wronged here on earth.

They are my free will choice. 

So, loneliness is feeling unhappy about being socially isolated or for some, the false perception of not being loved. Perhaps their needs, expectations or extra capacities disappoint or let them down.

Almost any woman in the world can relate to the letdown of their idea of a Prince Charming and the actual relationship in the flesh.

Perhaps some of the loneliest people are in a loveless marriage?

For me, I’ve identified that I want love, perhaps a perfect relationship.

Why not?

Who wants a mediocrity?

I think the Bible defines the ultimate, perfect relationship as that between God the Father and God the Son; perfect love, perfect harmony and perfect union from eternity past, broken only once on the cross when Christ took my sin upon Himself, my sin nature.

What Are the Benefits of Being Grateful?

It seems engrained in humans to know and understand a concept of a higher eternal laws.

Even children respond to “happily ever after” with that rare, unique union and love of their one and only prince or princess.

The idea is that they will never be alone ever again.

There are a lot of things associated with loneliness but there is a loneliness that, at the core, is an unmet or unrealized or partially realized or undeveloped need.

It can be a need for the idea of perfect love, intimacy, unity, harmony of spirit, commonality, total acceptance, approval, understanding, closeness affection or expressions of love in everyday things. 

It’s the communication of love or on many levels, the giving of one’s self. The trust, risk, the enjoyment of that person, and if you are lucky, the whole person. 

You may benefit from their intelligence, creativity, attributes, talents, personality, temperament and other things.

The degree that they choose to love you, their pursuit,  the passion, the commitment,  the exclusivity,  self-sacrifice and their ability to believe in and accept the live offered is all a part of the thing that erases loneliness. 

So, I believe that with each human there is a soul loneliness, a longing for God, a longing to be one with your Creator.

As a Christian I believe that when I am in heaven with Christ that finally my loneliness will be erased for all eternity.

Casting My Dice with Jesus

Casting My Dice with Jesus

Casting My Dice with Jesus

This may sound a bit corny, but you only have one chance at eternal love.

You know that any human that you love will eventually die, but the only other option that I have seen offered by anyone or anything is an Eternal God who loves you, who created you and who wants to have a relationship with you for the rest of eternity.

That is your only good option. All other options are finite and temporary. I believe that Jesus Christ took on the form of a finite human man so that he could unite us to the possibility of infinite love in Him.

Imagine having a relationship that only got better and better and better for the rest of eternity.

I’m casting my dice with Jesus.

I’m putting all my eggs in one basket.

I am willing to choose Jesus.

It’s like winning the ultimate lottery and Jesus’s work, obedience and sacrifice made it possible.

When they had crucified him, they divided up His clothes by casting lots.

Every Good and Perfect Gift

Every Good and Perfect Gift

Every Good and Perfect Gift

The Book of James 1:17“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

 

Every good thing is given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights (the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens) in whom there is no variation (no rising or setting) nor shadow cast by His turning (for He is perfect and never changes).

Humans are a funny bunch.

For the most part, they don’t know what they have until they lose it and they don’t have a real appreciation for the value of something until it’s gone.

I believe that in our walk and relationship with the Lord Jesus there are times that He must withhold certain things to teach us this lesson. 

Getting right to the point, I have seen this withholding in my life especially in my relationship with Him. I have experienced His intimacy morning after morning during my quiet time hours. 

Just like the story of the manna, you must feed on the Lord Jesus Christ daily to stay alive spiritually. It’s like being awakened from sleep or having a fog lifted from your being. 

When He comes in His is manifest presence your mind, body, soul, and spirit respond to Him.

You receive from Him life, light, energy, love, and a host of gifts. You become one with Him and become more like Him.

I believe that He honors your willful choice to see Him, ask of Him, and knock on His door. This must be a constant daily practice. He has been so good to me in this regard over the years. 

Randy is not only a great author but a great photographer. He takes all the images on his blogs. 

Fellowship with Jesus is life itself.

But what happens when you go into a period of soul darkness? You may experience a valley of the soul when things seem dead or dark and the Lord seems far away.

You ask, where is the intimacy, the presence of the Lord, the joy, the supernatural power?

My personal experience has been one of a very challenging life, many difficulties having to do with mental peace and tranquility. 

I have at times felt and experienced great mental and emotional turmoil, depression, loneliness, confusion, despair, extreme shame, and unstableness. There have been times in my life where I could barely cope with being here on this Earth.

This has been true for me from the early age of 5 and 6 as I have struggled with self-rejection believing that I was an outcast and different and that the world would never accept me, nor would I be accepted by society. 

The lies of the enemy can start at an early age. 

He is not respectful of any human.

My only way out of the turmoil of being a human and in practice the only thing that has made any sense to me was pursuing an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. (God the Son and my Creator). The grace that He gives overrides so much of the frailty and what lacks in me.

It most definitely reflects best in the idea of being a new creation in Him. All of this comes from being in a close intimate relationship with Christ.

And so, when I am in a dry spell spiritually and lack these daily graces,

I do have a greater appreciation for His grace in every area of my life including my heart, my soul, my mind, my spirit, and my physical existence.  

He sends grace on your relationships, your work, your ministry, and even the seemingly insignificant things.

I choose to keep pursuing Him and know that His intimacy and those daily graces will return if I wait on the Lord and have faith in His love.

Every Good and Perfect Gift

Examples of God’s Grace in My Life

 

1.) Waking up empty, cold, hard, distracted, passive spiritually and when you meet with God, coming before Him in whatever state, He comes to you in manifest power and His presence purges, cleanses, and enlightens, makes alive, energizes you (physically, spiritually, mentally) and you get to enjoy God and His goodness! “The chief end of man is to know God and to enjoy Him forever”

2.) He blesses your relationships with other periods you can always tell because the supernatural love and intimacy in possible without the Lord elevates the human relationship. It becomes a cord of 3. When I am away from the Lord, living and selfish sin, and being disobedient my relationships suffer.

3.) He makes your life significant by supernatural using you to love others and share him and his truth. He makes divine appointments that you would never experience on your own.

4.) He may bless you with little acts of kindness, delights and special moments as you live your life. You also get to enjoy the goodness of others prompted by Him. You just know in your heart that these blessings are from Him.

5.) Physical blessings of healing, health, and the ability to exercise enjoy exercise. And of course, mental health and intelligent thought.

6.) The grace to enjoy his creation, nature, beauty, and all of the arts.

7.) The resolution of differences in our relationships most often is a blessing from the Lord and impossible without His intervention.

8.) Correcting misconceptions, deception, and perceptions in our minds.

9.) Allowing us to have jobs or means to make a living that are satisfying and fulfilling, giving us purpose and significance.

10.) The continual process of sanctification – being made more like Jesus in His mind, His heart, His Spirit, His emotions, His purpose, His character, and His love.

And of course, many more!

Hope, forgiveness, our worth, prayer to change the world.
