“Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us” (Romans 8:34).
It is Satan, the devil, who accuses you. He brings up all the sins you’ve ever committed as evidence that you do not deserve to live forever in heaven. “The Devil, … the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night” (Revelation 12:9, 10).
The Bible says that God the Father has given all judgment to Jesus. “The Father … hath committed all judgment unto the Son” (John 5:22). The Bible also says Jesus is our advocate. “We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous” (1 John 2:1). Therefore, Jesus is our attorney in the heavenly court! What a blessing when our Judge is also our Attorney?
And the Lord promises that judgment will be “given in favour of the saints” (Daniel 7:22 NEB). And not only would judgment be given in favor of the saints, but according to Paul (1 Cor. 6:2, 3) and John (Rev. 20:4) the saints will assist in the work of judgment during the 1000 years.
In His service,
