Revenge- The Way of The Unspiritual


"An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth." This has been the maxim of old and is still being used today to justify one's cravings for revenge. But where did it lead the world? It led the world to a brutal state of existence. Do we please God by this? No, we only please our brutish nature and the master of this world- Satan. As innocent children and the elders die by the wayside, the laughter of Satan reverberates around the world as he feeds from the passions of people crazed for more revenge, violence and killings.

Such is the sad affairs of the world today. But this is not the will of God. God said, "vengeance is mine." He who persists in treading the road of revenge is putting himself under the law of the sword. God said, "he who lives by the sword, dies by the sword." And what is the admonition of God? God said, "love your enemy, do good to those who oppress you." Why would God admonish man to do this? Because by doing so, we put ourselves under the mantle of God's protection and love and He will surely annihilate our oppressors before our very eyes.

Do you want to see genuine peace in this world? If we do, let us immediately stop the cycle of revenge, killings, oppressions and hatred in our world. Let us learn to love our enemies and pray for them. If they still persist in continuing their insatiable quest for more violence, hatred and killings, let us then witness the unfolding of God's wonderful and amazing ways as He destroy and annihilate our enemies before our very eyes. THINK ABOUT THAT.

Hi teJan,
Yes, Jesus Christ admonished us not to revenge because vengeance is His. We can pray for all those who exact vengeance with their own hands. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Great post Mel! We all should remove hatred in our hearts. Leave it all up to God.

God Bless!

Parang mahirap yata ang magkaroon ng peace sa mundo.....kasi kadalasan talaga ang tao kapag inapi o sinaktan ay maghihiganti talaga...

Hi Minnie Runner,
Yes, you are so right. We too have our offenses to others. Let God take care of justice for us. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Arvin,
That is the reason why there is no peace in this world because people retaliate so the process goes back and forth like a cycle. Take the case of the Palestinians and the Israelis. They keep on retaliating with each other that is why there is no end to their strife. But take the case of Egypt and Israel. Both signed a treaty of peace during the time of US Pres. Carter and look how they peacefully coexist with each other. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Revenge is the usual first reaction of people who have been hurt. But it is said that revenge is not ours to take and God commanded us to forgive those who wronged us. We'll just pray that war and chaos all over the world will end soon and that love will reign in everyone's heart instead of hatred, grudges and revenge. Have a great day Sir Mel. God bless you and your family.

Hi Sam,
We must control our tendency to immediately strike back whenever we are hurt, for violence begets violence. It is better to be wronged than to harm somebody. At least wala tayong bad karma, hehehe. Anyway, God said vengeance is mine. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Shy,
Yes, it's human nature to retaliate when harmed. But this will also begin a cycle of revenge going back and forth like the Israelis and the Palestinians. Better to leave everything to God to revenge for us. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
