    How do we know what we are experiencing or feeling and thinking is a result if bad guilt or accusation of the enemy?
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    The bottom line is that you shouldn't worry about feeling guilty at all, because God already paid that price for you. Check out this blog post by Karen Hancock:

    Guilt, according to the American Heritage dictionary is

    Remorseful awareness of having done something wrong.
    Self-reproach for supposed inadequacy or wrongdoing.
    It’s a sin because it’s adding to the work of our Lord on the cross. If He took all the punishment for all our sins — and He did — then why would we feel we need to punish ourselves?

    1 Jn 1:9 says, “If we confess, [name, cite] our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    Jeremiah 3:13 says, “Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the LORD your God…”

    Acknowledging that you have sinned carries no merit. You’re just agreeing with God that what you’ve done/said/thought is a sin, and at that point He forgives you the sin and cleanses you from all unrighteousness. The cleansed vessel of the soul is then suitable to be filled or controlled by God the Holy Spirit and fellowship is restored.

    But to answer your question specifically: Who knows. The Devil will indeed accuse you, but sometimes we're our own worst accuser. But it's something you shouldn't let get to you, and feeling guilty and down on yourself is quite natural. You just need to remind yourself that it doesn't matter. God knew you would do that sin even before you were born. Yet, He has forgiven you, and always will forgive those who call out to Him. If you weren't saved, you wouldn't be struggling with any kind of guilt to begin with. When it comes, remind yourself of what Christ did for you. Just pick yourself up and keep on living.

    Darkness is just that, the absense of light. One that learns to carry the flame of truth is invunerable and only illuminates the dark. So any negativity in your being is a part lacking the illumination of God, truth, reality and does not exist.

    Dear droidBebe. The accuser, God`s adversary, is very sly and crafty. He will try any trick to win souls. There is one thing the accuser cannot bear, and he will flee from, that is Love freely given or talked about: selfless and free from any tricks or conditions. God is Love, in all His works and doings. The way God teaches us is always done by His Law of Justice, and even there is no malice or trickery. The World knows it as: " we reap what we sow," and it often can be hard. For Christian brothers and sisters however, it is God`s way of teaching us, and it will always be done in Love and Compassion. God wants loving children/sons and daughters, we have to learn to love God with all our hearts, with all our souls, and with all our minds. Also: we have to learn to love our neighbour as ourselves. Jesus will give us His Love and Joy, and the Holy Spirit will give us His Love, too. Jesus told us: "Ask and ye will receive," and then we thank God and share all Love and Joy with our neighbour. Satan would never ask for any love or compassion to show, he would always advise to be hard and cruel. I say this with love, droidBebe. Greetings from Emmy, your sister in Christ.

    The accuser brings condemnation which drives us AWAY from God.

    The Holy Spirit brings conviction which drives us TO God in repentance.
