The Book of Job tells us about how Satan had access to God’s throne and complained about Job (Job 1:6-12). Why did this happen? Satan had the right to do this because through the fall Adam handed over to the devil the key of dominion that God had given to him (Genesis 3). Therefore the devil was able to go before God and accuse Him of protecting Job. However, Jesus, our last Adam, came to earth. And by the sprinkling of His blood, He cleansed the things of heaven (Hebrews 9:22-24).
His blood has cleansed and redeemed the unclean place where Satan walked and stood before God. There is no more ground where Satan can stand before God in order to accuse you. What happened to Job cannot happen to you. Jesus is the one in the presence of God on your behalf (Hebrews 9:24) He is the one mediating for you, and He is the one interceding for you (1 Timothy 2:5, Romans 8:34). Since Satan can no longer visit the throne, he comes to the earth and accuses the believer in his conscience (1 John 3:20-22). Satan’s greatest tool today is deception since he has been denied any real power (Colossians 2:13-15).
So don’t let the devil deceive you by using Job as an example. God is the one who is boasting about you. Child of God, think no more of Job. That era is gone. The person standing before the Father is Jesus, the One who died and paid the supreme price for you.
The devil still goes about using the same old tricks to deceive people, making them think that God is mad at them because of their failures. Satan wants them to believe that what they are encountering is a punishment from God for their sins. Beloved, yes, your sin had to be paid for. The cost of sin is death; thank God Jesus has already paid the price. Remember that you are not Job. You are a child of God. You are the righteousness of God in Christ. You have access to the throne of God always (Hebrews 4:15-16). So when the devil comes with his lies, let him know that you know the truth. Stand on the truth and see the miracle that God has promised you.
Hebrews 4:14-16; 9:11-28
