"As I live, saith the LORD God, I have no pleasue in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his ways and live."

In the statement above, as if to end once and for all this ghastly belief that He finds delight in human misery and destruction, God affirms with a solemn oath that He has "no pleasure in the death of the wicked." Can anything be stronger than that? What God states under oath must be true. Let no man, no matter how clever in his argument, ever persuade us to entertain any doubt about it.
 
Christian friends, When we have sinned and begin to cry in sincere repentance: "God be merciful to me a sinner," we can be certain that He has pleasure; for the very purpose for which He gave His own Son is about to be accomplished, the salvation of a sinner.
