Let The Blood Speak – Overcoming The Spirit of Accusation

“Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him.  The Lord said to Satan, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?”  Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” 

Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.”  Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the Lord stood by. The angel of the Lord gave this charge to Joshua: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘If you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you a place among these standing here.” {Zech 3:1-6}

This passage of scripture gives us a clear picture how the enemy uses the spirit of accusation to undermine the purpose of God in our lives – so that work of God would be of no effect – which is the enemies ultimate goal. 

 Like Joshua the High Priest, we experience the same type of bombardments that stains our robes with accusations, suspicious, mockery, controversies, shame, contempt, hatred, gossip, and slander.

Yet, in this passage of scripture, I love how Abba rescued, defended, redeemed, restored, and affirmed Joshua.  Abba rebuked the enemy and placed on Joshua, a fresh, new, clean, white robe and turban.  The turban is mentioned twice in this passage of scripture and is very important.  The turban covered/protected the head of the High Priest and distinguished him as a servant of the Most High.   Likewise, our relationship with Abba distinguishes us as servants of the Most High.

“Sovereign LORD, my strong deliverer, you shield my head in the day of battle.” {Psalms 140:7}

The enemy’s battlefield is the mind.  So, it is essential for us to daily put on the full armor of God, bathe in scripture, and soak in His presence.   Abba will rescue, defend, redeem, restore, and affirm us when we come under attack – as He did Joshua, if we seek Him. Abba will take away the sting of every insult and injury.

The Blood Speaks

“The BLOOD of Jesus speaks better things than that of Able“.  {Hebrews 12:24}

When we have been misunderstood, accused, judged, criticized, and condemned we often want to defend ourselves and our reputations.  But Jesus was a man of “NO REPUTATION.”

When Jesus was brought to Herod to face accusations, Jesus did not argue His point or defend Himself.  In His silence Jesus destroyed the kingdom of darkness.  Likewise, when we are accused or insulted… not every remark deserves an answer.  Let Jesus answer for you…  Let the LORD defend you.  Let the LORD take up your case.  Let the LORD put a WORD against the enemy’s word.

A Token For His Good

“Shew me a token for good; that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because thou, LORD, hast helped me, and comforted me.” {Psalms 86:17}

  • When the Blood of Jesus speaks for you, the Lord will REDEEM you and show you to be a token for His good…
  • When the Blood of Jesus speaks for you, He will prove every negative word spoken against you to be in the wrong…
  • When the Blood of Jesus speaks for you, He will cause you to outlive every lie of the enemy…
  • When the Blood of Jesus speaks for you, He will SILENCE all your accusers…

The battle is not yours – it’s the LORDs, so kick it in cruise… relax… Don’t nurse the accusations…. Don’t rehearse the accusations…. JUST PRAY.

Prayer Points

  • I decree by the Blood of Jesus that every demonic label that has been placed on my life to limit my progress is ERASED in Jesus name!
  • In the name of Jesus, I invoke the redemptive power of the BLOOD OF JESUS to silence the voice of the accuser and I declare this day that every voice that has risen to accuse me will have to one day beg my pardon in Jesus name!
  • I cancel the assignment of every negative word spoken against my life and I declare that those words have no effect over me in Jesus name!
  • I destroy every fiery dart that the enemy has projected to sabotage my destiny, my family, my finances, my ministry, my health, my peace, my mind, and all that pertains to me in the Mighty name of JESUS.
