True Hatred – Psalm:139:19-22 (Chinese/English)

Psalm 139:19-22 -Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God!
O men of blood, depart from meThey speak against you with malicious intent;
your enemies take your name in vain.
Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord?And do I not loathe those who rise up against you?I hate them with complete hatred;I count them my enemies.

诗篇 13919-22-上帝阿,你必要杀戮恶人,所以你们好流人血的,离开我去吧。

True hatred

Not all people will have the same attitude to God as we do. Indeed, there are many people who hate God, yes hate God.

Surely people don’t hate God, people are just not interested. When we share the gospel, the reaction from people is just to refuse, surely, they are just busy. No, they are against God, they hate him.

Before we were saved, we were haters of God, we shook our fists at God in rebellion.

People fight against God, they speak against God with malicious intent, they curse God, they revile God.

Remember this, that anyone who is outside of Christ is God’s enemy, but this is the wonder of salvation, when salvation happens, we who were once enemies became his friends, and yes, his sons and daughters.

These people are atheists, they don’t believe what the psalmist believes, they don’t believe that God has created them. They believe that we came from some process, they rage at God, people like Richard Dawkins rage at God, they say that God hates people, when they hate God.

 These people are to be pitied; hell awaits these people.

 What do we do with these people, we pray for them, we continue to share the gospel with them, even if they reject us.

 God bless you

  1. Very well stated. I definitely could agree with your wording.
    Thanks for pointing out how profound our Lord is. Loving those that choose to display hatred not knowing Him or rebellion against His right to set standards for life.
    Denying His existence is one thing but hating someone they don’t even acknowledge as being there is a strange obsession along with fighting against the people who do believe.
    They must feel threatened somehow to be bent on this behavior.
