A lot of people think of God as a sadistic, masochist, and narcissistic God.
After all, people claim that He killed millions if not billions of people throughout history.
However, if we really read through the Bible and understand misunderstood Bible verses, we will soon see that Yahweh actually is a merciful, loving, and gracious God.
So, you might ask, what makes God happy?
A lot of people don’t know but you can know.
You don’t have to guess.
The Bible plainly tells us.
We see the answer in Luke 12:32:
“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
As we can see, it is our Father’s pleasure, not just pleasure, but GOOD pleasure to give us the Kingdom of God.
The Most High doesn’t feel happy to punish us.
What He wants to see is for us to obey Him and be part of His Family.
Don’t believe the lies of Satan that says God is out there eager to kill us on the judgment day.
No, that’s not true.
Instead, He is eager to give us the Kingdom and with great joy, He will tell us:
Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord” (Matthew 25:23).
