“He (God) does hurt greatly. I found out some years ago after laughing at a reenactment on a TV documentary of David and Goliath.. where David killed Goliath with a stone/slingshot. The actor who portrayed Goliath looked silly as he fell to the ground, and I jeered and laughed at him.. When suddenly the Holy Spirit convicted me and I heard Him speak to me (without words) He said, “you find this funny .. the death of this man and enemy of Israel? I find it NOT funny.. I wanted that he would have opened his heart to me.. his Creator., as well as his people, but he continued to harden his heart., to the point that I had no choice but to end his life .. or he would have proceeded to end the life of my people, Isreal . It did not please me to end his life”.
Wow, was I ever convicted after hearing that and I never thought the same again of the Lord’s enemies.. We (even we Christians) truly don’t think the way our God thinks.
