God dealeth with you as with sons;
for what son is there whom his father chasteneth not?
Religion has taught you that chastisement is something terrible and that God goes around punishing and hurting people, making them sick and taking things or loved ones away from them, to chasten them. But now that you know that it's religion, don’t believe it - religion is not Gods truth!
Gods truth is His word and that word brings liberty (John 8,32), whereas religion is just based on the ideas of men and brings you back into bondage, for that is exactly what the word religion means. (re-ligare = back to bondage)
So according to Gods word, chastisement is nothing negative. In fact it is your privilege as Gods child, there to teach you Gods truth, so that you don’t have to walk in darkness any longer.
Chastisement doesn’t have anything negative or bad in it. It doesn’t have anything todo with suffering, pain, grief or other devilish and fleshy things, for first of all, God doesn’t need to use anything of the devil to teach you something, and secondly, God is the father of all SPIRITS and therefore doesn’t chasten in flesh, but in Spirit!
You have an enormous potential in you, for you received Gods Spirit (God himself), who now lives in YOU. That means that all His power resides in you and that He wants to teach you in the Spirit, how to use that spiritual potential to come up to His perfection! (verse 10)
Why would God chasten you in the flesh, to teach you something in the Spirit?
So throw out all that religious junk that kept you from receiving Gods chastisement. Chastisement is an act of love and wisdom. It happens in love and it only happens if you are willing to receive it.
God wants to sit down with you and show you how to live in full authority and how to use His power in all areas of your life. That is chastisement and that is YOUR privilege!
Chastisement is nothing negative or bad. In fact it is your privilege as child of God, designed to bring you into the truth, so that you don’t have to wander around in the dark.
Chastisement is an act of love, not related to pain, suffering and other devilish things. It happens in the Spirit, for God is the father of Spirits, and if you are willing to receive it, it will bring you up to the perfection of God himself!
You got enormous potential inside you and God wants to teach you how to use it properly. Look past what religion has taught you about chastisement and replace it with the truth that will set you free! (Hebrews 12,6-15)
