In the name of the Father and of the +Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
God silences evil-doers by goodness. He shames those who are wicked by the suffering of the righteous. Sometimes you will be privileged to see it in your own life after you have suffered for the name of Jesus and the sake of what is right. You will be so blessed as to witness the repentance of those who have wronged you. But sadly that is rare. Your sorrow becoming joy may not happen on this side of eternity. But it will happen. In the resurrection of the dead when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:9-11). The books will be opened (Revelation 20:12). Wicked hearts will be revealed. Then those who did evil without repentance will be put to shame by those who suffered at their hands for their faith in Christ. They will shamed by seeing the object of their scorn being exalted by Christ Jesus, and their own high state being brought down to the depths of hell.
