The difference between “Funny” and “Joy”.
If this world only knew His “sense of humor”, they would never mock or belittle or blaspheme Him again… I pray the entire world gets His sense of humor. Soon.
His “humor” is such that I often laugh to the point of crying when I see what He has done to my soul. Its an “Inside Joke” you had to be there. Each soul understand this when they can look back at the old self, while repenting. I’m sure there are a lot of Saints in heaven “laughing” at what He has done to me because I am laughing right along with them. His “humor”, is found in the destruction of pride, bigotry, arrogance, and especially lack of faith in Him. The exact opposite of what today’s society calls “Funny” by mocking Him, portraying Him as a sinner, etc…
A few months ago, I read a story in which two Neo-Nazis, man and wife, found out they were actually Jewish and had a “Conversion of Heart”. They joined a synagogue leaving their hatred in the dust. That, is “God’s humor”. That is “Joy”.
“the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” Psalm 147:11
“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” Galatians 6:7
“17 And the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!” 18 And he said to them, “I was watching Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure you. 20 Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are recorded in heaven.” Luke 10:17-20
