“The LORD laughs at him …”
Psalm 37:13

Dear reader, it is alarming that God should laugh. This laugh is not the laugh of joy and delight, but rather the laugh of derision and disdain. It is the wicked at whom the LORD laughs for they live without Him and in opposition to Him. For weak man to live contrary to the will of Almighty God is foolish. To ignore the authority of God in disobeying His commandments is to arouse the righteous wrath of the holy God. This is so absurd that the Scriptures tell us that God laughs at this ridiculous scene. Man in rebellion against God--speaking what he should not speak, watching what he should not watch, reading what he should not read, craving what he should not crave, reacting as he should not react, ignoring what he should not ignore. One of the follies of sinners is to persecute the righteous: “The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. The LORD laughs at him, for He sees that his day is coming.” Of course, as always, there are many who deny that God will punish sinners. They delete all the verses in the Bible that speak of God’s wrath. Listen, neighbor, to what God says in Proverbs 1:25-27: “Because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of My rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes, when your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.” Our day is coming. Each of us needs to flee from the wrath to come. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved.”
