ROBERT MUGABE IN HOSPITAL: IS IT OKAY TO WISH HIM… DEAD?


ROBERT MUGABE IN HOSPITAL: IS IT OKAY TO WISH HIM… DEAD?

With the Zimbabwean dictator, Robert Mugabe, in hospital, many people are wishing him dead, so that the people of Zimbabwe can at last be freed from his reign.

I have already read various comments on Facebook and newspaper sites, which clearly indicate that many are happy to hear of Bob’s admittance to hospital.

May we wish a much-hated terror-of-a-person dead? I guess this is a question that especially Christians will be asking themselves… Well, I’m not going to answer this question with either a yes or a no! But what I will say is this: Nothing that people do here on earth goes unseen… Every rape, every cruel murder, even every dog that is buried alive – God knows about it.

“The Lord looks down from heaven and sees the whole human race.” (Psalm 33:13); “…for he looks throughout the whole earth and sees everything under the heavens.” (Job 28:24); “Even the depths of death and destruction are known by the Lord.” (Proverbs 15:11).

For me this means we can find comfort in knowing: The guy who raped a daughter, the man who drove over a beloved spouse and didn’t stop – that person will have to stand before God one day. He will one day right all wrongs: No unrepentant evildoer will be able to stand before God. “For it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’ says the Lord.” (Rom 12: 19)

I have this comforting verse tattooed on my wrist and it encourages me on those days when nothing feels fair: “And they will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb WILL OVERCOME, for He is KING of kings and LORD of lords, and with Him WILL BE His called, chosen and faithful followers.” (Revelation 17:14)

God WILL right all wrongs

Peace, out (Haha – I always wanted to say that!)
