“…the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10b KJV
I had the opportunity to go to court not too long ago, in support of a family member. Allow me to say that it was an eye opening experience. Not in the way that you may think…
Maybe because my mind is ever on the things in the Word of God. I’m not sure why my mind went there… However, I was placed in the mind of court in the heavens, with judgments placed upon us that impact not the here and now for the next few months or years, but all of eternity. With the accuser of the brethren being satan, also known as the DA. And the, judge, jury, and public defender being Jesus Christ, all wrapped up in One – the true living God.
This particular court room, put me in the mindset, perhaps because the judge was merciful. He researched past cases, took pause, and granted another chance. While the DA, was quick to seek to impose punishment and the maximum penalty. But the judge, served as an advocate as well, and said, in more than one case, Not yet.
I cannot recall being inside of a courtroom. They are intimidating at best. However, I recognize that there is coming a day, when all will be judged. However, for as merciful as the judge whom I had the opportunity to witness that day, Christ has much more compassion and mercy for those who choose to serve Him.
