Daily Devotional, Year 3 – November 19

The Whisperer, Part 4: “The Accuser of the Brethren”

To read Part 1, click here… MARCH 26 (The Whisperer: No Gossips In Heaven!)

.

.

.

.

“for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,

which accused them before our God day and night.”

Revelation 12:10

.

.

.

.

.

.

This above verse reveals that Satan’s great purpose is to accuse God’s people on a 24/7/365 basis.

.

Yes, right back there in the Garden, Satan even accused God Himself of being unfair!

.

And so, how much more does Satan accuse us sinners!?

.

.

.

.

.

“A WHISPERER SEPARATES CHIEF FRIENDS”

.

Listen…“A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.” Proverbs 16:28

.

Yes, Satan is a whisperer, always ready to quietly accuse and criticize into any receptive ear!

.

And those who take the name of Jesus on their lips should never get the notion that they are somehow above or beyond the Tempter’s poisonous whisperings.

.

.

.

.

.

“…LEST ANY ROOT OF BITTERNESS SPRINGING UP…DEFILING MANY”

Hebrews 12:15

.

One great problem with listening to Satan’s accusations and criticisms is that it obviously sours the hearers of Satan’s gossip against those whom Satan has whispered about.

.

In other words, whether or not Satan’s criticisms and accusations are true, partly true, or even totally fabricated, Satan’s willing hearers cannot help but have all such criticisms begin to fester and grow, as a bitter root within their own heart.

.

.

.

.

.

UNSEEN EVIL ANGELS WHISPERING

.

The main point to be made in today’s devotional is this: If I am having critical thoughts about another person, there is a good possibility that the old accuser has been whispering in my ear.

.

Listen to the remedy for all such critical thoughts…“Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer.” Psalm 101:5

.

When ever the whisperer puts a critical, slanderous accusation in my mind, this above verse counsels me to cut off the accuser, whether it be an invisible spirit, or even a human! Simply do not entertain any such accusations! In such cases, silence is golden!

.

.

.

.

.

“IN HER TONGUE IS THE LAW OF KINDNESS”

.

Our supreme Role-Model, Jesus did not engage in gossip or slandering.

.

Oh yes, He scolded. But He scolded to one’s face and nor behind their back!

.

Listen to this description of the virtuous woman…“She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.” Proverbs 31:26

.

This should likewise be describing all Christians, too!

“WHO SHALL ABIDE?”

.

 

And here is just one more promise for those who finally overcome this soul-defiling habit…“LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour…He that doeth these things shall never be moved.” Psalm 15:1-3, 5

.

As this above verse reveals, those who are truly saved will increasingly exhibit these qualities.

.

.

.

.

A WHISPERER IS UNSAVED

.

And consequently, this next verse reveals the sad condition of those who are not saved“He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.” Proverbs 10:18

.

The name, “fool” in the Bible is synonymous with being unsaved. And so, one might say, “and he that utters a slander is unsaved”. Of course, God’s people may fall into this sin. But the true worshiper will be overcome with grief and repent, while the false believer has no problem with uttering such slanders.

.

.

.

.

.

“BE AFFLICTED AND MOURN AND WEEP!”

James 4:9

.

And so, the encouragement for today is to cry out to God for deliverance from all such slandering behavior.

And if I do come to realize that my rude and unruly tongue is indeed a symptom of my unsaved spiritual condition, then I can assuredly go before the throne of grace and cry out for mercy and Salvation!

.

Listen… Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the Devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you….Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.” (To read entire passage go here…James 4:4-12 )

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

“THE SCORNER (THE PHARISEE)”

.

Listen to the following revelation concerning the evil which exists within the hearts of men…For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, AN EVIL EYE, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.” Mark 7:18-23 

.

Please tilt your head to the left. Do you see a man with a very long pointed nose. (Obviously, the sketch to the right is just an exaggeration in order to help you find the face in the photo to the left.)

.

Do you see an angry look? His right eye-brow is raised as if he is judging.

.

This second face in the Moon appears to be that of a combination of a man as well as a fox. Or maybe a wolf. Doesn’t he have a long narrow nose like a wolf or fox? Maybe even a dog. Nevertheless, the expression on his face, as he appears to look down upon the Earth, is that of scorn. Unlike the  first Moon-man’s sad shock and awe; this ‘man/fox/wolf/dog’ appears to be that of anger and scorn. As if he is disgusted at the sinful planet below.

.

He is very moral, you see!
