the accusative case

I was listening to a youtube by Zo Rachel of Macho Sauce Productions and realized something new.   Revelation 12:10 calls Satan “the accuser of the brethren”, and he certainly is that.  But the first accusation we know of wasn’t against man but against God.

In Genesis 3:1-5 the serpent first implies that Eve can’t trust God, and then that God is holding out on her.  His insinuation is that God somehow has a selfish purpose for keeping her from something that is her right and destiny.

As my friend Mike Johnson says, “God doesn’t owe you nuthin!”, but how many times have we sided with Satan and treated God as if he is keeping us from something good and desirable?  These days  he rarely rains down fire from heaven or has the earth open up to swallow people alive, but it’s a wonder to me how he restrains himself.  How would you feel if you’d rescued someone from certain destruction, then set them up with a nice living, only to have them hurl accusations at you?

I’ve observed mothers bound by a spirit of rejection as they attempt to pass that spirit on to the next generation.  They do it by storing up accusations against the children’s father and rehearsing those accusations regularly in the children’s ears.  Satan set the pattern for that in his first interaction with humanity, and his accusations since then haven’t weakened – or changed.

    I could not agree more. Sounds like your reading my last 14 years back to me! It is the destruction of a covenant and a tradjedy for these women later on down the road who choose the feminist manifesto instead of Father knows best Manual the bible.
