59. Desire on our Enemies



To want to see our "desire on our enemies" is not wanting their salvation, it is ALWAYS wanting their destruction (as long as they are in their natural state, i.e. enemies of God). Of course it is not sin to cry to God to regenerate them, but we must acquiesce with God's decision about this, not complain that "God got it wrong" by not saving them and throwing them into hell (which is just what all of us deserve anyway):

Psalm 54:7 - "For he hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies."

Psalm 58:10 - "The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies."

Psalm 92:11 - "Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me."

Psalm 112:8 - "His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies."

Psalm 118:7 - "The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me."


We should rejoice over the destruction of our enemies:

Revelation 18:20 - "Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her."
