Satan is the accuser of the brethren, trying to get God’s children to doubt their eternal assurance in the blood of Jesus Christ. On the cross, Jesus Christ crushed the head of the wicked serpent. The sins of all of God’s people were paid by Christ on the cross and any accusation of the devil has been cast down. Who can lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? No one, not even the accuser of the brethren who has been cast down.
