Jude 1:9, "Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee."
Jude is a relatively short book in the Bible, but there is one particular verse of scripture that directly correlates how much intense hatred Satan has for the believing ones. In verse 9, we find that after the death of Moses, the extenuating circumstances surrounding his burial did not sit well with Satan, the legalist, contentious adversary. He wanted to know where the body of Moses was buried, and since God personally buried Moses, Satan’s ignorance of the matter infuriated him. He had charges to press against Moses for sins he committed as a zealous young Hebrew and as a frustrated leader of the nation of Israel and he eagerly wanted his day in court.
Michael, the prince angel of Israel, who had a full understanding of why Satan was so interested in Moses’ body, dared to return the accusation as to why God buried Moses. Instead, he rebutted, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan!” The rest is history.
Listen to my Sunday morning preached messaged that equips the believer with sobering reasons for living a life of repentance before God and the importance of maintaining their places under the Blood of Jesus. Let it bless you.
