"But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken!"
At the cross, Jesus disarmed
the enemy by nailing the law and and its decrees of punishment to the
cross. Now when the enemy tries to accuse us of being
bad, guilty sinners deserving condemnation, he hasn't anything to stand
on because the law has been taken away at the cross, and there is no
more record of our wrongdoing and therefore no justification to condemn
or punish us! Thus the enemy is silenced every time! These wonderful
benefits of vindication come from God, for our righteousness is from
HIM. We have been made the righteousness of Christ, we have been made,
declared and proven to be not only guilt-free but actually righteous
with the righteousness of Christ Himself..
Vindication means to
clear of guilt, accusation, blame, suspicion or doubt by evidence and
proof...to uphold, maintain and insist on someone's honor and
rights...to prove the worth of! Christ went to the cross and got rid of
our sins and the law that was against us...His resurrection is proof
that He succeeded in clearing us of sin and guilt and that He made us
innocent and righteous (just/justified)! "He was raised because of our
justification!" He vindicated us!
Jesus vindicated you -
your vindication is from Him! He cleared you of all guilt, accusation,
blame and suspicion. He upholds and maintains your cause and your
righteous standing. He insists on your honor and rights to eternal life
and fellowship with the Father! He proved your worth at the cross!
You stand vindicated, proved to be righteous and innocent, cleared of
all accusation, with every right to be in God's presence forever, holy
and blameless before Him, worthy and affirmed, victorious over the enemy
and his lies forevermore!!
