Brothers and Sisters, whom do you really think you are?
If you are NOT experiencing THIS in your life on a continual basis . . . . .
Heb 12:5-11 And you have forgotten the appeal which speaks to you as to sons, “My son, do not despise the discipline of Yahuah, nor faint when you are reproved by Him, for whom Yahuah loves, He disciplines, and flogs every son whom He receives.” If you endure discipline, Yahuah is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom a father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become sharers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Moreover, we indeed had fathers of our flesh disciplining us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of Ruachs, and live? For they indeed disciplined us for a few Yomin as seemed best to them, but He does it for our profit, so that we might share His apartness. And indeed, no discipline seems pleasant at the time, but grievous, but afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
. . . . . . then you are NOT experiencing THIS on a continual basis EITHER:
1Pe 2:11-25 Beloved ones, I appeal to you as travellers and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly lusts which battle against the LIFE, having your BEHAVIOUR among the nations good so that when they speak against you as evil-doers, let them, by observing your good works, esteem Alahim in a yom of visitation. Be subject to every institution of man because of the MASTER, whether to the sovereign as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by HIM for the punishment of doers of evil, and a praise for those who do good. Because such is the desire of Alahim, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men, as FREE, yet not using your FREEDOM as a CLOAK for evil, but as servants of Alahim. Respect all, love the brotherhood, fear Alahim, respect the sovereign. Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the crooked ones. For this is favour, if because of conscience toward Alahim anyone bears up under grief, suffering unrighteously. For what credit is there in enduring a BEATING when you sin? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure, this finds favour with Alahim. For to this you were called, because Mashiak also suffered for us, leaving us an EXAMPLE, that you should FOLLOW His steps, “who committed no sin, nor was deceit found in His mouth,” who, being reviled, did not revile in return; suffering, did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges justly; who Himself bore our sins in His body on the timber, so that we, having died to sins, might live unto righteousness – by WHOSE STRIPES YOU WERE HEALED. For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your lives.
Are you experiencing Yahusha’s discipline upon you to be Healed? Are you proclaiming Yahuah to be someone other than a Loving and caring Father for His children, who Disciplines Justly for His children’s own Benefit? If you are, i would ask compassionately for you to move out of the way for those who are willing and seeking to enter in to Yahusha’s Door. So they may begin to heal from the religious mindset hangover. For it is upon each individual to receive their own Discipline from Him.
