Romans 8:33 - “Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies."
The book of Job tells us that Satan came to God’s throne and complained about Job. (Job 1:6-12) God’s throne is the most holy place. So why did God allow Satan to come before Him in the most holy place? Because of Adam’s sin, He had the right to take Adam’s place and come before God.
So, what happened to Job cannot happen to us. Job longed for a mediator, but he had none. (Job 9:33). Today we have Jesus as our Mediator, mediating the New Covenant between God and man. However, since the devil cannot come before God any more, he comes to you on earth and accuses you in your conscience. Satan cannot come before God to accuse you because it is God who justifies you through the terms of the New Covenant. Jesus’ holy blood has given you perfect standing in the presence of God!
