The Accuser At Work

Several years back we posted a word predicting a disaster to come on a set date. It never happened. Shortly after, I learned that the author of this word was being labeled a false prophet in the internet. This puzzled and disturbed me greatly. I sought the Lord, asking him why are these men picking on this writer for missing a date. His answer came immediately.

John 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

And from this answer, I knew that the accuser of the brethren was at work here. This reminded me once again of the warning against getting caught up in the civil war. Some are saying that we should stone the false prophets, or at least hold them accountable to the old testament standard of prophetic accuracy.

Today's scorners are fond of quoting the verses about a prophecy not coming to pass. They want to judge today's prophets and other ministers after the Law. So do they want to be under the law themselves? Or do they want to oppose God?

In John 8 the Pharisees brought in a guilty woman saying:

John 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

Jesus stooped and wrote on the ground. Then he stood up and declared, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. He wrote again on the ground, and when God arose the second time his enemies were scattered.

Another ploy of the civil warrior is to quote the saying by their fruit you shall know them. And proceed to judge someone after noting a flaw in their character, forgetting that charity covers a multitude of sins.

The Pharisee who prayed in the temple correctly discerned that the publican alongside him was a sinner. The woman caught in adultery in John 8 was guilty. The woman at the well in John 4 was a sinner. [All of these are types of the church by the way.] How did Jesus treat them? He, Jesus, did not seek to judge them after the law, but showed compassion.
