Who are Your Accusers?

It’s amazing how much of what our accusers say about us (or our past) seems to hit us right on. There is a hint of reality in every accusation, but only a hint, and it is never justified when we are truly in Christ.
Since the great accuser is Satan, his tactic is to take some of what is true and twist it into a false accusation. The host of a spirit of accusation does the same thing.

The past does not equal the future with Christ. In fact, God has completely absolved us of any sins once we realize and repent of them. I had encountered this problem first hand when I unknowingly got involved with someone who was a natural at twisting things. It seems there's a lot of that going on these days. Bad things we did before we came to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ can really be used against us or distorted beyond recognition. So, in effect, not true.

Who are Your Accusers, Free from the Stronghold of Accusation is written by Christian author, Pola Muzyka. This editorial is meant to be a stepping stone in uncovering the demonic strongholds that keep us captive and prevent us from receiving God’s best.
Rembrandt - Samson Accusing His Father-in-Law ...Why is the spirit of accusation ready to point a finger when it is challenged? Sometimes we don't even realize our own thoughts drifting to assumptions about people that may never have taken place. Why? How did this spirit become so strong?

Sometimes this spirit manipulates the minds of others to gain control or advantage. It finds fault where there may not be any. Is it looking for or expecting perfection? No. Not necessarily. Even Christ who was perfect was accused.

The accuser spirit becomes a stronghold when a host is seeking to control and maintain or gain self-justification. Accusing is a way to sanction personal inadequacies while blaming others, thereby taking the attention off the real problem, which could be in something the host is harboring or something they are trying to set in motion. Like other strongholds, an accuser stronghold invites reinforcement to sanction it’s right to the host; blame, defensiveness, false religion, and any number of other spirits can follow or proceed this demonic stronghold.

Let's take this one step at a time. Some strongholds are seasonal or situational but some can become permanent. It's the permanent ones we must get rid of.

If a stronghold of accusation is built, the host of accusation will forever be unhappy, forever be left unsatisfied, and forever search for that justification that only can be found in a right relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

5 Biblical tips to overcome a stronghold of accusation.

1. Ask God to help you see things from His point of view. A worldly POV will only keep us accusing even those made righteous. When we see the beauty (love, peace, joy, patience, kindness, self-control, truthfulness, gentleness) around us, we spend less time looking at the faults of others.
Romans 3:23-24 Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honor and glory which God bestows and receives. [All] are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ Jesus,
Romans 3:23-24 GW Because all people have sinned, they have fallen short of God’s glory. 24 They receive God’s approval freely by an act of his kindness[a] through the price Christ Jesus paid to set us free from sin.
2 Corinthians 6:8 Amid honor and dishonor; in defaming and evil report and in praise and good report. [We are branded] as deceivers (impostors), and [yet vindicated as] truthful and honest [through Christ].
2. Be cautious and wise before you judge. There are very few righteous accusers. In fact, none. Even our Creator will not judge the world until the judgment time comes. Now, does that mean we cannot discern the difference between what someone does right and what someone does wrong? These days it almost seems so, but God's word tells us the difference if we read carefully and not according to our own worldly desires. We can't change the world and we know that in the end times the world will try to make bad look good (abortion for example) and good look bad (laws and guidelines).
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
John: 8:6-10 10 When Jesus raised Himself up, He said to her, Woman, where are your accusers? Has no man condemned you?
3. Put your trust in the salvation of Jesus Christ and don’t be overwrought by the accusation of others for anything you did in the past before you came to Christ and turned from sin. That does not mean for you to deliberately continue in sin, knowing you are sinning. As Jesus said, "if you don’t turn to God and change the way you think and act, then you, too, will all die." Luke 13:3

Hebrews 2:14 Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil,
Luke 15:7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
4. Once you come into the kingdom by receiving Christ Jesus and turning from sin, don’t go back to a life lived in sin.  Your past is forgiven, your accusers cannot destroy your future. A religious spirit cannot take you down.
Ephesians 2:1-2 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—
5. Never fear false accusations or accusations from sins of your past. The accuser that tries to infiltrate our thoughts, lives, and those around us is an enemy. He was an accuser from the beginning. Do not fear him or join him, either.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God.
