Easter as a celebration to inhabitants of the earth.

They really happy that they were able to kill Jesus. And they are unhappy because He rose from the dead.

They want to kill Him again but they can't.
Nevertheless they can kill us.
Our deaths and our injuries mean celebration to them!
If we died, they will gloat over us and will celebrate by sending each other gifts.

"And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell on the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelled on the earth."

They made us suffer ... and suffer ... and suffer... because of Jesus.
Brothers, they already make our lives miserable.

But does that make sense?
How can anyone want to live like that?

We don't want to die. And we can't live like that
But we don't have a choice, because:
- they can and want to kill us because of God
- we can't stop loving God

All we can do is pray: “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” '
Revelation 6:9-10

Does God have a choice?
Is this really the right thing to do?

God hates and abhor them. David hates them. Why can't I?

George said: If someone hurts you ... you can obviously seek justice in a court of law and nobody is suggesting otherwise. However, in seeking justice -- one does not have to turn that seeking justice into hate. It's that simple.

Answer: Psalms 5: 5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.

Psalms 139:19-22 'Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. Do not I hate them, O Lord , that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.

John 3:36 'He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.'

Whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.

God hates all who do iniquity and Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
David hated them from the bottom of his heart.
God’s wrath remains on them because they reject Jesus.

God hates and abhor them. David hates them. 
Why can't I? Because you say so, I can't?
I am going to follow God's example. 

"Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye."

They hate us because of God. Why in God's name should I love them ?

To me belongeth vengeance and recompence

In Rom 12:19 Paul quotes the words of Deuteronomy 32:35

If you read the whole chapter, you will see that Israel had acted lawlessly and they sacrificed unto devils, not to God.

At this particularly trying moment, God said "To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; ..."

So what does that means? Is it your proof that we should love antichrists, witch, murderer, burglar, rapist... and other villains or what? Those who shows no remorse for their crime and happy when can hurt me.

What do you mean? Should I be grateful them that they want to hurt me?
If I'm a victim of a crime I can't go to court?
And are you trying to say that if criminals want to take my shirt, I must hand over them coat as well?
And do you think I should be thankful to criminals for I have been the victim of crime?
You think this is what Paul was talking about?

This is another proof of we should live by law of God and should be trying to do the Lord's will.
Otherwise, God will say "To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; ..." again.

Jeremiah 22:3 "Thus says the Lord: Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the alien, the fatherless, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.".

Jeremiah 22:26 "He judged the cause of the poor and needy; then it was well. Is not this to know me? says the Lord.".

They hate us because of God. Why in God's name should I love them ?

Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

brotherdon said:
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.Luke 23
Them was murdering Jesus at that moment

Answer: He said that about Romans. They know not what they do and they were not criminals but hangmans.
That's like accuse the hangman in the implementation of a court decision. It was their job.

What's your point?
Should I assume that's reason to love antichrists, witch, murderer, burglar, rapist... and other villains ?

They hate us because of God. Why in God's name should I love them ?

If God stops evil, would we be free?

appy said: If God is going to stop evil, is He required to stop all of it or just some of it? If He stops all of it, would we be free?

What do you think freedom is?
Do you think freedom is the possibility to do evil?
Without possibility to do evil, there would be no freedom?
He who don't commits evil can never be free?

Heaven doesn't have possibility to do evil.
So there is no freedom in Heaven?
I wish it were always like in Heaven. Do you?

They hate us because of God. Should we love them because of God?

Боже хвалы моей! не премолчи, ибо отверзлись на меня уста нечестивые и уста коварные; говорят со мною языком лживым; отвсюду окружают меня словами ненависти, вооружаются против меня без причины; за любовь мою они враждуют на меня, а я молюсь; воздают мне за добро злом, за любовь мою — ненавистью.
Псалтирь 108:1‭-‬5 SYNO
