Chastisement and Repentance
(Ego, Pride, and Self Reliance)
Jeremiah 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they break, although I was an husband unto them, saith Yahuweh.
Numbers 13:22 Ahiman (who I am, Ego), Sheshai (what I am, Pride), Talmai (what I can do, Self-reliance) Caleb had to kill these three giants sons of Anak which means giant, Caleb killed Anak also. In order to enter the kingdom of heaven with a pure heart we must kill those three giants. Thank Yahuweh we don't do it alone. Yahushua is the beginner and the finisher of our faith.
Job 5:17-21 Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: 18 For He maketh sore, and bindeth up: He woundeth, and His hands make whole. 19 He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. 20 In famine He shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. 21 Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh.
Born of the blood and body of Yahushua broken for us, when affliction comes know we have a lesson to learn. The faster we learn it, the sooner it ends.
Job 36 study in depth verse 22 who teacheth like Him? The word chastisement in the New Testament means to teach, the word law in the old meant teaching, especially in Psalm 119!
Hebrews 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but He for our profit, that we might be partakers of His holiness.
Psalm 84:11-12 For Yahuweh God is a sun and shield: Yahuweh will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. 12 O Yahuweh of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in Thee.
Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
This statement goes far beyond wicked persecuting the just, but those afflicted and chastened for there own good, repentance, breaking of iniquities which is bondage, and to be able to walk before Yahuweh with a pure heart.
Do you decern the body and blood of Messiah? I Corinthians 11:28-31
Trust God and obey His son to love one another.
