In this wicked diabolical world people have no idea what they are getting themselves into. Every day true Christians are forced out into the world not always to just go out and preach but to live day to day life and go to work and be around a bunch of God-hating heathens. A lot of times these worldly people with no fear of God perceive someone’s Christian faith as weakness and knowing that the person is honest and non-vengeful will try and get ahead at the Christian’s expense. This can be by telling lies about the Christian to the management or other workers to make themselves look better or cover up the fact that they aren’t really good at their job. God keeps a close watch on this and has been doing it since the beginning and is doing it today:
“14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes; 15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” Psalms 105:14-15
A true Christian is open and honest about their beliefs. Many times this can lead to the Christian being the butt of the joking. An insecure demon possessed low life heathen loves this because they feel they can use the Christian as “comedy material” always making a joke to look funny to everyone else. Again, they try to get ahead in the wicked world at the Christian’s expense and God is watching and not pleased. The children tried to use The Prophet Elisha this way and how did that work for them?
“23 And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. 24 And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.” 2 Kings 2:23-24
That was little children mocking a prophet of God, how much more angry will God be at grown men for doing this? The reason true Christians and not worldly lukewarm compromising Christians get taken advantage of is because being a Christian is a humble way of life which is perceived by the proud as weakness. What the world doesn’t realize is that God is our strength and what they perceive as weakness is what has the power to wipe them off the face of the earth very quickly:
46 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.” Psalms 46:1-3
Ananias and Sapphira tried to take advantage of the apostles for financial gain and the Holy Ghost struck both of them dead on the spot. How often does the world try and take advantage of Christians financially because they see their humility as a weakness and try and exploit it?
“3 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God. 5 And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.” Acts 5:3-6
When God anoints someone by the Holy Ghost to work for Him on this earth that means the person is one of His anointed that He says to touch not. God has reproved even kings for His anointed’s sake so what makes anyone think they are safe from His revenge? People have no idea when they are using the anointed Christian of God as jokes or in ways to slander to get ahead in the workplace or anywhere that they are playing Russian Roulette with their very life. God can, has and will strike a sinner dead without warning for doing things like this and then throw them into Hell. As Christians we are not to go out seeking vengeance. It can be hard sometimes because when there are people that are constantly mocking your faith in the workplace or using your Christianity against you for their own personal gain it can be extremely hurtful, disheartening and aggravating. We can try and avoid them and pray for them to repent to Jesus and get saved but it is ultimately God who will decide who He will have mercy on. As the coworker stands around again and again poking fun at the Christian and then even at the very God that we serve to be the popular company comedian all of the sudden they can drop dead when God has had enough, He will not be mocked for long. God hates these people and will definitely take vengeance when He sees fit. There is Hell to pay for these wicked people and rightly so.

“To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.” Deuteronomy 32:35
“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” Romans 12:19
