“Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he who accuses them before our God day and night” (Revelation 12:10).
The work of satan is to accuse; to divide and separate. “Kategoros” is the Greek word translated as “accuser.” From this we also get our word “categorize.” It is the means by which we diminish others and elevate ourselves. By accusing others we seek to justify our behaviors. To accuse or categorize someone, with no intention of seeking reconciliation or understanding as is directed by Jesus, is to be deceived into doing the work of satan. Christians unite and build up while the evil one seeks to divide and destroy.
