According to the biblical meaning of the word revenge: (NOUN), the action of inflicting hurt or harm on someone for an injury or wrong suffered at their hands (VERB) inflict hurt or harm on someone for damage or wrong done to (someone else).
Often when someone has done so much harm to our persons, we want to get back at them. We want them to hurt as badly as they have hurt us. But when we are doing this spiritual walk, we believe that a high power will not like it, and we let it go and try our best to heal from it.
I get so angry when I am doing my consultations, and people cry telling me how badly someone has hurt them. It's like they are in despair, and they want to take revenge on them. We give so much of ourselves to others to only have walk all over us and stomp on what dignity we have left.
The most serious of the injuries caused, the heartbreak that we felt that continues to repeat. It forced us to go thru this healing process very slowly, and we began to hate everyone because we did not take action against that person to avenge the pain they caused.
But what even hurts the most is that we will use this as an excuse:" I ask God to forgive me, so why can't you?"
They pull the God card thinking that it will ease their conscience and that all is forgiven and forgotten. NOT!!!
We suffer in silence, trying to reason ourselves why these people get away with murder, have everything, and we are left here holding the bag, waiting to see them gets theirs—waiting on Karma to come and kick them in the ass.
The bible says an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, hand for a hand, burn for a burn. You have to stop getting caught up in the New Testament and to where it teaches us that we are so supposed to turn the other cheek. Let that shit go.
If you did nothing wrong and all you did was give all you had, and you were walked on, stolen from, and abused, then seek to avenge that wrongdoing. Seel revenge for a family member that has is too weak to help themselves.
I know someone might question, but why did God say vengeance is mine? To my understanding, I interpret that if I am created in the image and likeness of the Highest, then vengeance is mine.
Are you deliberating about hurting someone who has never done anything to you? Are you coming from a place of jealousy to stop someone's else growth because your shit is not coming out right? You are doing any of that. So seek help from a person who knows what they are doing and has knowledge of working in the spiritual world to avenge the wrongdoings.
Stop worrying about if it's going to come back on you. The only way it will is if you lied about the incident and had no role to play in it. But if you are innocent and you have been truthful, the spirit world will help you, which will make that healing process go a little faster.
