Will I cry or will I laugh?
When I consider the foolishness of those who have abandoned not only God and His children in favor of slavery to the destroyer himself; then I truly wonder what Jesus meant when He told us to pray for our enemies.
Is our prayer really for them or is it for us? I am reading right now how Richard Wurmbrand actually showed love for his enemies when in the midst of the torture that he endured at their hands for Christ.
Some of those actual enemies actually came to Christ themselves because of his love for them when they were so undeserving of his love for them.
Richard does not tell us about those who remained evil, but the scripture does:
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Psalm 2:2-4 KJV
So will I laugh or will I cry on that future judgment day when all men stand before God as He is seated on a Great White Throne, and before Him are those who were so foolish that when they were told by us of the plight that awaited them without Christ, and they would not have any of it, but just stood with loathing on their face; scorn in their demeanor; and mocking in their words.
Some of these I’m sure are ones that I watch each night on the various news networks. They lie with the intent to bring us down, and they proceed knowing that their actions will, should they succeed, lead to the destruction of this country and the freedoms of every citizen to choose his way in his pursuit of life’s happiness.
I don’t know what I will do at the great white throne? What I do know is that God will laugh.
The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him: Lo, this is the man that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness. But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
Psalm 52:6-8 KJV
Scripture says that tears will be wiped away at that time. So I do also know that I will cry for some, but will I also laugh with God at some? One thing for sure the punishment at that time will be totally and completely just for every man for the very first time on this earth since the fall.
There will be no lawyer to offer objections, no hiding of the evidence. With no blood to cover the sin it will all be visible for all to see. It will be a frightening thing to stand before an angry God who laughs.
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life. Revelation 21:27
