Railing Accusation

In Jude 1:9 Is it Satan OR Christ who does not bring railing accusation? And what is railing accusation referring to?


2Pe 2:10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil <987> of dignities <1391> (glory, glorious).

1Pe 4:14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory <1391> and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of <987>, but on your part he is glorified.

Jude 1:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil <987> of dignities <1391>.

Re 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed <987> the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory <1391>.

2Pe 2:11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power <2479> and might <1411>, bring not railing <989> (blaspmeny, evil speaking) accusation <2920> against them (HIM) before the Lord.

Re 5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power <1411>, and riches, and wisdom, and strength <2479>, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

Re 7:12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power <1411>, and might <2479>, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

Ps 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

2Pe 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil <987> of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;

Jude 1:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil <987> of dignities <1391>.

Jude 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed (reason with) about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him (body of Moses, Elect?) a railing <988> (blaspmeny, evil speaking) accusation <2920>, but said, The Lord rebuke <2008> thee.

Jude 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

Nu 23:7 And he (wicked Balam) took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel.

Nu 23:8 How shall I curse (speak evil of), whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?

Zec 3:1 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.

Zec 3:2 And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

Mr 9:25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked <2008> the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.


De 34:4 And the LORD said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.

De 4:21 Furthermore the LORD was ANGRY with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance:

Nu 20:12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them.

Heb 3:18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

Nu 20:24 Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah.

Ex 32:35 And the LORD plagued the people, because they made the CALF, which Aaron made.

Eze 2:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.

De 34:5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the LORD.

De 34:6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: {but no} man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

De 34:7 And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

De 34:8 And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.


De 34:9 And Joshua (Jehovah is Salvation) the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses.

De 3:28 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.

De 31:3 The LORD thy God, he will go over before thee, and he will destroy these nations from before thee, and thou shalt possess them: and Joshua, he shall go over before thee, as the LORD hath said.


Mt 17:1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

Mt 17:2 And was transfigured (transform, change) before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

Mt 17:3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him (Law and the prophets, two witnesses?).

Mt 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

Mt 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

Mt 27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Joh 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

Eze 37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.


God appears to be showing that railing accusation is to speak evil of. Moses dying without seeing the promise land seems to be a picture of the church dying in Moab. But he, typifying the elect also, is raised and seen with Christ on the mount of transfiguration. So Christ does not speak evil of Moses but rebukes the devil in order to redeem His people.
