People loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. John 3:19-20 Holy Bible Amplified Version.
When I first became a Christian it confused me why certain folks hated me with a passion even though I did nothing to offend them.
After reading this first the Lord blessed me with understanding.
They hate all Christians because we who walk in the Light convict those that enjoy walking in the darkness. They know what they are doing is wrong ( the Holy Spirit convicts them ) yet steadfastly refuse to repent of their wicked ways. They laugh and say that either there is no God or He does not care.
When they encounter us true Christians their conscience is pricked and they do not like it.
Then in their evil perverted minds they conceive every torment they can upon us and laugh at our discomfort. They foolishly believe they are getting away with it.
Time and again it clearly states that Jehovah is a God of justice and He will deliver terrifying justice on His time and in His way.
From my experience those whom the wicked tormented will be witnesses to it. I certainly did not enjoy it, indeed , many times I wanted to cry watching them suffer, but accept that Jehovah cannot allow the wicked to go unpunished.
Those who walk in Christ will be avenged in Gods time in Gods way. Joseph- Anthony: Green
We do not gloat over it but allow it to digest into our heart and mind so that we can share this testimony with other tormentors in the hopes that they will repent.
As well, it is encouraging to those who are being wickedly persecuted. The Lord is on my side, He is among those who help me;
Therefore I will look [in triumph] on those who hate me. Psalm 118:6-7 Holy Bible Amplified Version.
Prayer: Thank You Jehovah-Hashopet (The Lord is the supreme Judge) for condemning the wicked ones and delivering true justice to the wicked ones that inflict pain and suffering upon the innocent ones. I praise You in the name of the Supreme Judge Jesus Christ . Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
