Lucifer’s Alias: The Devil

The word ‘devil’ in Greek means, "Satan: false accuser, slanderer." (Strong’s #1228)

The word ‘slanderer’ defined by Webster’s Dictionary means, "the utterance in the presence of another person a false statement or statements, damaging to a third person’s character or reputation."

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 damaging to the character and the reputation of Christians. This is a spiritual battle that is fought on legal principles between good and evil. We cannot allow this enemy to defeat us of any wrongdoing in the court of eternity.

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, which accused them before our God day and night.

The word ‘accuser’ in Greek means, "plaintiff." (Strong’s #2723)

The word ‘plaintiff’ defined by Webster’s Dictionary means, "a person who brings a suit into a court of law complainant."

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.

The word ‘advocate’ in Greek means, "an intercessor: comforter." (Strong"s #3875)

The word ‘advocate’ defined by Webster’s Dictionary means, "a counselor to summon for aid, a person who pleads another’s cause; specifically, a lawyer."

The word ‘propitiation’ in Greek means, "atonement." (Strong’s #2434)

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.
