How does Jesus deal with “those who are of the synagogue of Satan”? Remember He is referring to the teachings or doctrines that have their origin in Satan, the Law of Moses, or the philosophies of this world. Jesus deals with people through salvation and not destruction.
Throughout the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ (and the rest of the Bible) you will find that the fellowship and union of the saints with God is through words of love and worship. Then there is the relentless war of words between the Church and Satan. Satan is not God’s enemy; HE IS YOUR ENEMY. Satan is humanity’s enemy. He sought Adam’s throne and position of authority, not God’s. He knew he would never get God’s throne, but Adam’s throne had been exalted to the right hand of God. Jesus as the Son of Man, the second Adam, now holds that throne and has raised us up and seated us with Him on His throne.
Being seated on the throne of God and ruling and reigning with Him is no small issue and while we have all been called to this glorious position, not all will ultimately sit with Him. This is reserved for those who overcome the voice of the accuser – the teachings that come from the synagogue of Satan. In this synagogue you will find the false prophet spouting out every anti-Christ philosophy imaginable. These doctrines are taught in the church and society at large to deceive the nations, to bring destruction, sickness, and death. In short, Satan’s goal with these teachings/doctrines is to blind humanity, including the church, from the truth and revelation of Jesus Christ.
Spiritual warfare is a war of words. Jesus, the Word of God is spiritual warfare personified.
Many of us are aware of Jesus temptations in the wilderness. Satan was present in the wilderness. Waiting, watching, learning. Who is this Son of God? Is He the Seed that would crush his head? Is He the next ruling King of Israel? He defeated Adam and Eve through the cunning and craftiness of his voice, his reasoning, and his accusations against God. Would he be able to do the same with this son of man? If this was the Son of God, he had better kill him and do so quickly. And so, the war of words began.
Please remember, the temptations that Satan presented to Jesus were real and powerful. Jesus was tempted, which means He gave thought to and considered what Satan was saying. Jesus came to earth as a man, grew up and learned about who He was, who God was, and how to engage and connect with God just like you do. He faced all the temptations that you face, and therefore, He is able to sympathise with you and help you when you are facing the voices of good and evil in your head.
Like you, Jesus had to learn to use His voice and bring down the enemy of His own soul. By now He knew the Scriptures regarding the power of the tongue, that creation hangs upon His every word, and that He IS the WORD of God. He did not enter the world with this knowledge. He grew up in this knowledge as He spent time in the synagogue, read and memorised the Scriptures, obeyed the Law, learned to pray, learned to obey, etc. He does not ask you to do anything that He has not done. This is why He is a faithful High Priest and able to make intercession for you before the Father’s throne.
Jesus came to identify Himself with you so that you might find your identity in Him as God’s son or daughter.
So, how does Jesus deal with your accuser when he rises up against you? Exactly the same way that the accuser does. The accuser comes with words and doctrines, Jesus comes with WORDS AND DOCTRINES. These words and doctrines are WITHIN you. The war is in your mind, your heart, and your actions. No one but you will give an account for the words that you give place to within you. You are the lord and king in your inner world of thought, imagination, and emotions.
Victory over Satan is not difficult, but it does require discipline. This discipline is your worship of the Father. The more you worship the Father through singing the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb the greater your victory.
They sang a new song: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slaughtered. With your blood you purchased people for God from every tribe, language, people, and nation. (Rev 5:9)
They sang the song of God’s servant Moses and the song of the lamb: “Your deeds are both spectacular and amazing, Lord God Almighty. Your ways are just and true, King of the nations. (Rev 15:3)
Sing your songs of praise! 😊
