ANOTHER GOOD ONE FROM GALE !
"The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth. The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming." Psalm 37:12-13 KJV
When God laughs at you, you are doomed! There is nothing that will help you. If you think to revile the faithful, attack Truth, or follow some self-proclaimed prophet, you are an egotistical fool. What can you do beyond the grave? Men greedily grasp and claw to get pleasure, money, and power. Many perish in the process, but not even the most powerful will be able to lift an eyebrow in eternity without God’s approval. When they are bound and cast into the Lake of Fire, God’s laughter will echo in their ears for eternity. The wicked can do nothing on earth, either, unless God allows it. All power belongs to Jesus. He gives it to whom He will. Don’t be dismayed by the threats or actions of the foolish. Just be patient and do what is right. They can do nothing but what God allows, and if He allows it, it will bring Him praise and glory. If God allows harm or catastrophe to come your way, He will also give you the grace and strength to endure. Not one vile thought, word, or act escapes His direct notice. It is all recorded, awaiting the Day of Judgment. Not one of your hairs can be disturbed without His knowledge or approval. Let the wicked do their worst. It only fills God’s Cup of Wrath faster and it will soon be poured out back on their own heads. Keep your mind stayed on the Word of God and peace will prevail in your heart and soul. You, too, will hear it when God laughs at the wicked. Let them amass power and wealth. They cannot carry a scrap of it beyond death’s door! On the other hand, the faithful can store up treasure in Heaven, “where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.” It will await your arrival. You need not bother with luggage. All your needs and desires will be supplied for eternity. By obedient faith you can amass a fortune that will put all this world’s wealth to shame. So, “let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.” Your faith is your passport to eternal, untold wealth and pleasure at God’s right hand.
The Lord will laugh at wicked men,
Who ne’re repented of their sin,
Who’ll never enter in to see,
The blessings of eternity. ~CGP
Just be patient a little longer in the fields. Supper will be announced, soon, and we’ll all go up to the House.
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 KJV
