The Judge And The Accuser

The English word "judge" originated from a compound Latin word, judicis, which meant to pronounce what is right i.e. jus means law or right (justice is based on that word) and dico which means to say (interestingly, diction and dictionary are based on the word meaning to speak i.e. dictionary originally meant how to say words, not their meaning, as is still found in translation dictionaries e.g. an English-Hebrew dictionary).

The word "judge" is usually used to translate the Hebrew word, pronounced shaw-fawt, which means to judge and/or to pronounce sentence, and the Greek word, pronounced kree-no, which means to decide and/or to sentence (notice how "sentence" means both words and an act of judgment).

The English word "accuser" originated from a Latin word, accuso, which meant to blame (the word blaspheme has the same origin). It is used to translate the Greek word, pronounced cat-ay-gor-eh-oh, which means to accuse. Translation of the Hebrew word, rather than using the English word "accuser," usually just uses a pronunciation of the Hebrew word which means accuser, saw-tawn, from which "Satan" originated. "Satan" isn't as much a name as it is a behavior i.e. Lucifer now behaves in a "satanic" manner.

"He shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares"

After the destruction of the world of Babylon, Christ will come to rule the world in truth and peace - and absolute power (see the Fact Finder question below) from Zion (see Zionism). The result? "4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. 4:3 And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 4:4 But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it" (Micah 4:1-4 KJV).

The Holy Scriptures

"19:1 And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above], saying, Alleluia [see Hallelujah]; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God: 19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments [see When Will You Be Judged?]: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand. 19:3 And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.

19:4 And the four and twenty elders [see The Twenty Four Elders] and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne [see A Vision of God's Throne], saying, Amen; Alleluia. 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.

19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come [listen to the Sermon The Divorce and Remarriage of Jesus Christ from our Sermons page], and his wife hath made herself ready. 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

19:9 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." (Revelation 19:1-10 KJV)

The first of the "four horsemen of the apocalypse" (see notes for Revelation 6-8) was a white horse - which portrayed false Christianity. Later, Christ will return on a very different white horse (see Two White Horses), "19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war" (Revelation 19:11 KJV).

"19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war [see Christ the Conqueror For Peace]. 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood [see Why Blood?]: and his name is called The Word of God [see The Logos]. 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses [see A Heavenly Cavalry Charge], clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a Rod Of Iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above], Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army [see War With The Lamb]. 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him [see Emperors and Popes], with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh." (Revelation 19:11-21 KJV)

In due time, Satan, the accuser, is going to be put away forever.

12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth [see The Fall Of The Light Bringer; also Satan's Throne], and his angels were cast out with him.

12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb [see Why Blood?], and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." (Revelation 12:7-11 KJV)

"20:7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city [see The City To Come]: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever." (Revelation 20:7-10 KJV)
