And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it , being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. John 8:3-11. As you read this story, put yourself in the place of this accused woman. She was guilty of Sin and had no legal means of defending herself. She was guilty and she knew it. Satan, her accuser, also knew that she was guilty and he had the scripture, God's own word, to prove it. Anything less than the Death Sentence, would also prove the Judge to be Crooked and guilty of Sin. Satan can only use the Legalistic Wording of the Bible to accuse you of sin. "Thou shalt not", is the best he can do. Christ doesn't just KNOW the Word, because He IS the Word. Up to this point, Satan is actually right, you and I ARE Guilty of sin, AND WE MUST PAY FOR OUR SINS, (just as The Law requires) AND Die. BUT CHRIST DIED IN OUR PLACE, to Pay for our Sin Debt, that we can go Free, TO SIN NO MORE. He took YOUR place on Death Row, and died in YOUR place, so that YOU will Live, and, Be Blessed.
