In Revelation 12:10, the Devil is called the " accuser of the brethren." Tearing down a church happens when members of the church partner with him in accusing other believers. We see a picture of this in the life of Zechariah, a young prophet whose calling was to lead God's people in rebuilding the temple in Jerusalem after their return from captivity in Babylon. In Zechariah 3:1-5, we see Joshua the high priest clothed with filthy garments, and Satan standing beside him to accuse him. Even before the Lord removes Joshua's filthy garments, He rebukes Satan first. Then the Lord replaces Joshua's filthy garments with beautiful new robes. But, why was Zechariah there? It was a test to see which side he would take - the side of the accuser, or the side of the Intercessor. Zechariah shows us what it means to be a builder of God's house. As soon as Joshua was clothed in beautiful, new garments, Zechariah decides to make him even more glorious by asking for a turban to be put on his head.
