Is God Ever Disappointed?

Is God EVER disappointed?

The short answer is: NO.

What is disappointment?

disappointment

(uncountable) A feeling of sadness or frustration when a strongly held expectation is not met.

IF one was to look over more than one dictionary, one would find that the word  “disappointment” is STRONGLY intertwined with the word “expectation.”

EXPECTATION is such a human emotion.

EXPECTATION has to do with the things that one expects or believes will happen.

EXPECTATIONS are what one has when one does NOT possess a perfect knowledge of the future.

God–who has perfect knowledge of all times at all times–has NO EXPECTATIONS of what will happen: God KNOWS exactly what will happen because God inhabits that place which men call “the future.

One can NEVER be disappointed IF one has perfect knowledge of the future because one has NO EXPECTATIONS of that future time.

For the same reasons God is never SURPRISED, God is not DISAPPOINTED.

[The following is a VERY hard concept for humans to grasp.]

God has NO expectations of what will happen in the “future” because God KNOWS what will happen in the future.

A person may not know how he will act in a certain circumstance.  But God knows–particularly if that certain circumstance has already occurred in the time which men label “the future.”

EXPECTATIONS are best guesses.

NO guessing is needed when one KNOWS what will happen.

Therefore, God is NEVER disappointed–unless He wants to be.

DOES the reader believe that God is sometimes disappointed?

It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
