In the past I have heard and read some people say the bible says God laughs… He looks down on us and is laughing at some of the things we do… just tickled pink over our mistakes. Wrong!
Thomas Watson explains
“The Lord laughs at the wicked, for He knows their day is coming.” Psalm 37:13
“Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Then He rebukes them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath!” Psalm 2:3-5
God laughs to see men’s folly-to see poor, weak clay strive with the Almighty Potter. But let the wicked remember that God is never more angry with them-than when He laughs! After His laughing, then He shall speak to them in His wrath. “I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you!” Proverbs 1:26
“Kiss the Son, lest He be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment! Blessed are all who take refuge in Him.” Psalm 2:12 (Thomas Watson, “Kiss the Son”)
