This may be a touchy subject for some, but I feel led by the Holy Spirit to address it today: it is written in Revelation 12:7-10,
7  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8  And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
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.

The part the LORD wants me to focus on is “for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”

Now why do you suppose the LORD would want to bring that to our attention?  It’s because Christ Jesus gave the perfect sacrifice of Himself for the remission of our sins.  So before God, those who have received Christ Jesus are BLAMELESS before the Father.  It doesn’t say we never sin, it just says He does not account sin unto us anymore. But there remains a problem:  it seems many of those who profess to have been forgiven of their sins are doing the devil’s work, in that they are constantly accusing the brethren.  My friends, that should not be so.

Some of those same accusers also come against the Word of God, saying, How can I be sure the Word is true?  Perhaps it’s just stories men have written, that translations are incorrect, or that it doesn’t really mean what is written, merely allegory. They are quick to say they never see any miracles today like in the days of the disciples. They are equally as quick to discount the work God is doing through today’s believers, that they are merely false claims, unsubstantiated and doubtful.  So how can they expect to see miracles if they refuse to believe the promises of God, or that God works through believers today?

Those not believing in miracles today will never be embarrassed by one if they don’t believe ahead of time.  The Lord Jesus gave away one of the biggest secrets in creation when He gave us Mark 11:23-24, which says,
23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

It’s one thing to accuse the brethren, but it’s a MUCH more serious accusation to say these verses don’t work, thus accusing Jesus of lying.  Many people don’t want to accept any responsibilty for their actions, in that Jesus said they must BELIEVE in order to receive.  I’ve heard some say all the responsibility lies with the person praying for them, but if that is so, then why did Jesus say to some,Be it unto you according to YOUR faith”?

Instead of accusing others of not praying in faith, because they didn’t receive, or that there is no proof for miracles today, or that all the Word doesn’t really mean what it says, it’s time to remember the accuser of the brethren has been CAST DOWN!  And God isn’t looking for new accusers to replace the defeated devil.  Instead, we should believe God’s Word, and be encouragers of one another.  The Apostle Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:1-9 to turn away from those kind of people:

1  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6  For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8  Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9  But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.

Spending time trying to teach accusers of the brethren is usually not fruitful, and disputing with them, trying to get them to see the truth is like trying to turn a tree into a car, it just doesn’t happen, no matter how fervently you want it to.  But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t pray for them, perhaps God will grant them repentance and free them from the devil that is holding them captive.  But Paul says they can learn and keep learning, yet never come to the knowledge of the truth, and from such to turn away.  If you’re anything like me, you’re very reluctant to give up on them, and you just keep ministering to them.  But there comes a time after seeing no fruit when you must indeed turn away so you can direct your time and efforts to those who WILL listen.  Let the Holy Spirit be your guide, not your “feelings”.

We must concentrate on ministering to those who “have ears to hear” as Jesus said, for time is short and the harvest is near.  COME LORD JESUS!
