"The accuser is not there"

In Revelation the devil, Satan, is called "that old serpent," and "the accuser of our brethren." In the tenth verse of the twelfth chapter occur the words, "The accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night." What was it that cast down the accuser, or evil?

The accuser—the devil or evil—has in belief always been the persecutor. Throughout their whole earthly career mortals are tempted by evil, often falling before the temptation and suffering in consequence. How frequently does sin claim its victims, frequently plunging them into the depths of despair! Sickness, too, is a form of evil belief against which the human race wages constant warfare. Thus, evil many times seems to be very real as it appears to work havoc on the health and happiness of mankind. And every time its erroneous suggestions are believed, every time its claims to reality are accepted, its efforts are to mortal sense successful.
