Proverbs 17:22

 “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

All across the United States and other areas of the world, there are individuals playing pranks on each other for April Fools Day. Most of this is in good fun and harmless things are done for the sake of a good laugh. Whether you take part in the fun or not, there is something wonderful about having a sense of humor.

I have heard all my life, “The Lord must have a sense of humor to put that man and woman together”, or simply, “The Lord has a sense of humor”. I believe He does have one. How could His sons and daughters smile and laugh if He does not? Some of the best times of our lives include laughter, and a good sense of humor being shared with friends and family.

Rest assured, where God is, the enemy is not far behind. The danger of a good sense of humor is when it becomes tainted by the world. Things can get out of hand, and wrong things are said that can grieve the Holy Spirit. That should not happen among Believers.

In Ephesians 5:4, the Apostle Paul clearly condemns foolish talking. This word is mórologia in the Greek, which means “talk with filthiness and crude joking”. This is wrong. This does not mean that there should be no sense of humor at all; it means that a correct, Godly sense of humor should not be mixed with the filthiness of the world.

Bro. Pearry Green, in his testimony of his experiences with Bro. Branham, told us many stories where the Prophet laughed and told jokes, many times to create a good and merry atmosphere. God intends for His saints to laugh and enjoy themselves. King Solomon said, “there is a time for laughter” (Eccl. 3:4). A joyous atmosphere is like the strongest and best of medicines.

Let your sense of humor be Godly and clean.

65-1204 - “The Rapture”

Really nice to be here! And I guess those don't sound like jokes, but sense of humor. Which, the Lord Hisself had a sense of humor, you know. He said, "'Herod,' go tell that fox, see, 'today I cast out—cast out devils; tomorrow I'm made perfect.'" So, He had a sense of humor. Well, it won't hurt us, I don't think, once in a while.
