The lies of the devil has always being same from the beginning of time, He slanders us before God and also slanders God before us. Accusation is his weapon, both ways. This He did with Adam and Eve, by painting God in a bad light before them, making them think God was hoarding power and knowledge and didn’t want them to be as He was which was all a lie because God had already made them as He was Gen.1:26-28 & 3:1-7. We also see the same pattern He used against Job, by slandering Job before God. This He did, by saying that Job only feared God because God protected him, thus in such heated conversation, He got permission to afflict Job and to spare only his life. Job1:1-end & Job2:1-7.
Notice that the event concerning Job took place before Christ birth, for after Christ death and resurrection. The Holy Spirit speaking through Paul in Romans 8:1 tells us that there is now no condemnation to us in Christ Jesus and that nothing can separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus. Paul went on to say in Romans 8:31-39 that neither shall tribulation, distress, persecutions, famines, nakedness, perils, or sword Rom.8:31-39. For He also said that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, can separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Meaning, no matter what lies or accusations the devil makes against us or tragedy the devil may cause in our lives today, God has made up His mind that they would never stand in the way of His love for us, for He is ready to do all it takes to show forth His love in us and for us and to draw us out of that predicament, fulfilling all the great plans He has for us and our lives because it is His love and help that restores us and establishes us in life. Job had no saviour to redeem him or his identity before God, but we have Jesus Christ who shed His blood for our redemption, sanctification and right standing with God, no matter what Heb.10:19-23.
