The devil’s role in this earth age is that of the
accuser. His demonic purpose is to bring illegal charges to court that are

We cannot allow this enemy to defeat us of any wrongdoing in the court of
Revelation 12:10-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,

God is the Judge of His eternal court and He presides
over all legal matters pertaining to Law. The devil is the plaintiff and he
uses the legal process of this eternal court to bring charges against
Christians for any violation of God’s law. Jesus Christ is our advocate who
pleads our case before God against the devil’s accusations. The verdict in
our case is always an acquittal on all charges if we repent. When we repent
our sins, which are violations of God’s laws, we are forgiven.
1 John 2:1-2-My little children, these things write I
unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the
Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He is the propitiation for our
sins: and not for our sins only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

When we, as Christians, repent of our sins, God then covers us with the
atoning blood of Christ which in turn nullifies Satan’s power to accuse us
in the court of eternity of any wrongdoing.
