Hebrews 4:15-16 (NASB)
15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. 16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
This Triad Assails You Through Legalism
I am not selling cheap grace, but don’t sell me any cheap legalism either, because it abounds everywhere. Our tendency is to not only to be accused by the devil, but in our own arguments, he wears us out against ourselves. The Lord calls us to come back to Him. Check this out: God does not receive Satan into His court with arguments or accusations; Satan has no case to make here. The only place he can make his case is in the privacy of your own soul, and when the facts of what he presents are true—you are indeed caught in the web of serious bondage in habit or practice in your life—you need to come to the Cross, not only as a place of repentance, but with it, into the immediate entry of the love of God.
I weary over the judgments of well-meaning people has done to the mindset of the living Church. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever—and so are the Pharisees. That one coming in Pharisee garb to accuse you is a part of the “triad of enemies”.
The summons is ‘Bring it to the Lord’. Not only to the Cross in repentance, but to the Lord for an embrace. Abraham returned to place he had earlier called upon the Lord and began to rebuild the altar. Come to the Cross for freedom from what has worn you through in the struggle, and from what now the adversary can successfully accuse you of. If God would not cast you away when you came as a hell-bent sinner, He won’t cast you away though you are a stumbling, failing servant. Come to Him and receive of His love and embrace; don’t let these enemies successfully war against your mind with accusation.
