Vengeance Belongs to the Lord

"Repay no one evil for evil ... live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves ... for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord. Therefore if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him a drink ... Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (Romans 12:17-21)
For those of you who have been seriously wronged and are contemplating some type of payback, some type of vengeful act against that person - look very closely at this next verse.

This verse tells us that we are not to repay evil with evil. In other words, God is telling us that any type of vengeful act that we try to take against someone who has wronged us will be considered an evil act on our part. And as such, we will either have to face His judgment in this life or in the next life for taking this vengeful act.

We are not allowed to take the law into our hands - either on earth or in heaven. Vengeance and payback belong to the Lord - not to us or anyone else who would like to try and get even for you!

I know there are some people who say they would kill others if anyone ever harmed any of their loved ones. But if you payback death with death, you will have to answer to God for your act of vengeance. This verse tells us to do just the opposite - to pay back evil, to overcome evil with goodness.

God will be the final Judge, Jury and Executioner on the evil someone may have done to you. This is His territory - not yours!

Here is a major power verse every single Christian really needs to grab a hold of if they have ever been seriously wronged or injured by the evil acts of another.

Again, do not tempt your eternal fate with God the Father by attempting to take the law in your own hands if someone has viciously wronged either you or a close loved one.

The Bible says that murderers will not be entering into the kingdom of heaven - and that may include you if you decide to try and take another person's life as payback for something they may have done to either you or someone else in your family.
