The True Story and Reasoning Behind God's Chastising, Loving Power

The Holy Bible teaches us that the Lord chastens whom He loves. (Hebrews 12:6-7)

He really loves me. I've been through the valley of chastisement and I'm thankful for the tender mercies of Jesus Christ our Savior.

There was no other savior formed before Him, nor shall there be any after.

He is the beginning and the end, aka Alpha and Omega. The Son of God and God the Father.

The Holy Bible says, "But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons." (Hebrews 12:8)

If you and I endure His chastening, then God deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father does not chasten?

Here is the definition of chastening:

to make someone understand that they have failed or done something wrong and make them want to improve. To chasten someone is to correct him or her, often with the use of some pretty steep punishment including pain and suffering.

This type of chastisement forces you to depend on God. This type of chastisement will give you a prayer life.

I prayed to have a better prayer life. And the Lord showed me how, by chastising me to the point that I had to depend on Him because He was the only one who could help.

God is a very present help in times of trouble, just as His love is ever present.

God the Father so loved the world that He sent His only begotten son, Jesus, into the world to suffer pain, punishment and death on the cross of crucifixion as the Old Testament turned New Testament one-time sacrifice of appeasement.

Christ took away the sins of the world. He arose from the dead. He ascended into Heaven. Then a now He fired us up, makes us bold in His name, comforts us and enlightens us with the Holy Spirit.

There is chastening, purifying, loving power in the name of Jesus.

He loves those who do not love Him. He is patient with them. In all of His tender mercy, He is waiting for the rebellious to stop disrespecting him. He is affording them every opportunity to repent from their sin of disobedience.

Eventually His love will turn into punishment in the lake of fire burning with brimstone, aka eternal and unimaginable torment apart from Him.

Being tormented away from God, forever, is defined by great mental suffering and unhappiness. Maybe even great physical pain. It is a source of much trouble, worry or annoyance. It is akin to an instrument of torture.

Don't fall victim to the eternal punishment of the Lord. Instead, beloved, pray and ask the Lord to be your God. And, you in turn worship Him as the one and only God the Father.

Love Him for His Fatherly chastising, correction along with keeping your feet from falling. To the one and only wise God be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.

Long live the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
