God is the Judge, Jesus is our Defense Attorney, and we're the criminals because we're all sinners! (Rom.3:23) The Devil is the Prosecuting Attorney and he demands the execution of the Law!--And of you! (Job 1:6-12; Rev.12:10b)
But Jesus went to our defense and He paid the price of our pardon, so God the Judge can set us free! And when the Devil reminds God of all your sins and iniquities, all you have to do is look to your Defense Lawyer, Jesus! (1Jn.2:1)
And Jesus just looks to the Father and says, "Father, forgive this man! This is another one of mine, Father, who has received Me and believed in Me as his Lawyer, as his Defense Attorney, as his Advocate. He has received My defense, he has received My sacrifice in his place and believes that I took his punishment for him! Therefore, Lord, You can hand him one of those pardons." And God hands down the pardon, and Jesus hands it to you, and the Devil slinks away, with his tail between his legs, defeated again!
You've got a pardon from God, no matter what you've done, because Jesus took your punishment on the cross! "The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from ALL sin." (1Jn.1:7) That's the only answer you need.
