SCRIPTURE UNDERSTANDING: 


GEN 14:14 “And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his 318 trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan”.


HOS 10:10 “When I desire, then I bind them. And peoples shall be gathered against them when I bind them for their double guilt. And Ephraim is a trained heifer, loving to thresh grain. But I Myself shall pass over her comely neck – I put Ephraim to the yoke, Judah ploughs, Jacob harrows for him. Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap according to kindness, break up your tillable ground, it is time to seek Alahim, until He comes and rains righteousness on you. You have ploughed wrongness, you have reaped unrighteousness, you have eaten the fruit of lying, because you trusted in your own way, in your many mighty men”.


PSALM 89:30 “If David’s sons forsake My Torah and do not walk in My right-rulings. If they profane My laws and do not guard My commands, then I shall visit their transgression with the rod, and their crookedness with flogging. But My kindness I do not take away from him, nor be false to My trustworthiness. I shall not profane My Blood-Covenant, neither would I change what has gone out from My lips. Once I have sworn by My set-apartness, I do not lie to David: for his seed shall be forever, and his throne as the sun before Me, like the moon, it is established forever, And the witness in the Heaven is steadfast… Selah”.

1 CHRON 12:8 “And some Gadites separated themselves to David at the stronghold in the wilderness, mighty brave men, men trained for battle, who could handle shield and spear, whose faces were like the faces of lions, and were as swift as gazelles on the mountains”.


MATT 20:18 “See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man shall be delivered up to the Chief Priests and to the Scribes. And they shall condemn Him to death, and deliver Him to the nations to mock and to flog and to impale. And the third day He shall be raised.” 


LUKE 12:46 “The Master of that servant shall come on a day when he does not expect him, and at an hour that he does not know, and shall cut him in two and appoint his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant who knew his Master’s desire, and did not prepare, nor did according to His desire, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet did what deserved flogging, shall be beaten with few. And everyone to whom much is given, from him much shall be demanded. And to whom much has been entrusted, from him much more shall be asked”. 


2 PET 2:12 “But these, like natural unreasoning beasts, having been born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheme that which they do not know, shall be destroyed in their destruction, being about to receive the wages of unrighteousness, deeming indulgence in the day a pleasure, spots and blemishes, revelling in their own deceptions while they feast with you, having eyes filled with an adulteress, and unable to cease from sin, enticing unstable beings, having a heart trained in greed, children of a curse”.


GAL 3:23 “But before belief came, we were being guarded under Torah, having been shut up for the belief being about to be revealed. Therefore the Torah became our trainer (school-master) to Yahusha, in order to be declared right by belief. And after belief has come, we are no longer under a trainer. For you are all Sons of Alahim through belief in Messiah Yahusha. For as many of you as were immersed into Messiah have put on Yahusha. So there is not Jew nor Greek, there is not slave nor free, there is not male and female, for you are all one in Messiah Yahusha. And if you are of Yahusha Messiah, then you are the true seed of Abraham, and heirs according to promise”. 


HEB 5:12 “For indeed, although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first elements of the Words of Alahim. And you have become such as need milk and not solid food. For everyone partaking of milk is inexperienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food is for the mature whose senses have been trained by practice to discern both good and evil”. 


HEB 12:5 “And you have forgotten the appeal which speaks to you as to sons: ‘My son, do not despise the Discipline of Alahim, nor faint when you are reproved by Him! For whom Alahim loves, He disciplines, and flogs every son whom He receives.’ So if you endure discipline, Alahim 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 Spirits, and live? For they indeed disciplined us for a few days (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”.


REV 3:18 “I advise you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, so that you become rich, then buy white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown, and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. For as many as I love, I flog and discipline. So be ardent and repent! See, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me”. 


SUMMARY: 

Someone being trained is called a trainee, yet no one wants to place themselves in the apprentant position of `discipled or trained one’… WHY? Everyone wants to have their own mind, own life, own opinions and achieve what they see most other teachers and leaders having: power and success … yet this behaviour is wickedness to Yahusha and His way is very differently opposite. Just like His fruits are not available to anyone outside of His Reign (only accessible through Divine Transition into Yahusha Alahim) … His training, flogging, rebuking, discipline and rebukes are also invisible and supernatural - and they DO NOT STOP and you cannot end it of your own volition … YOU ARE NOT THE TRAINER. The pain stops when we choose to BEHAVE THE FRUITS all the time!


Looking at the Hebrew, we see just how unfashionably HARSH and CRUEL Yahusha Alahim’s treatment and punishment and judgment of His own Bride is. Yet He states Himself that His yoke is not heavy and His teaching is light? So why do we feel such writhing agony and deathly torture inside each and every day? Because He’s wrong and not fair? Or because our behaviours and lifestyles are so far away from the Words of His Covenant  that He must mold and shape and chisel and beat and pierce us OVER & OVER in order to squeeze the very life-force of sin and filth and self-rule out of us in order to produce something Radiantly Heavenly in our vessels: Divine Fruits of Behaviour that in no way, shape or form come naturally to us in our flesh (quite the opposite). 


This is the process that every candidate for Eternal Life (only available through Yahusha Alahim) must undergo in their Cocooned Death-Trap of isolation and destruction. Remember we either endure the judgment of our flesh now in order to be a risen, transformed Sons of Alahim (the Bride whisked off into the Wilderness for her finishing touches) or we get lumped with the rest of unregenerate mankind (as well as the unwise virgins of Yahusha) and partake of the final plagues of Yahusha’s Lionous Rage and judging destruction … coming on the world already. 

Revelation is already happening … (most of it !)


How do we know (for the most part) that our training is over?

When the FRUITS OF RIGHTEOUS BEHAVIOUR are who we’ve become! That is the only purpose for His assault of everything we hold dear and precious …. OUR DEATH! And we can understand why Yahusha’s first followers ‘hated their own lives unto the death’ … for having spent excessive amounts of time exposed to His gaze, words and hand … they knew nothing they could ever achieve or do in their flesh would make a difference … ONLY BE LISTENING & FOLLOWING IN OBEDIENCE would they see His power and plan come to fruition … so they surrendered.


THE FLOGGING IS REAL, THE GOADS, WHIPS, SPIKES & BATTERY.

BUT IF WE REFUSE HIM, IF WE OBJECT, FAINT, RUN AWAY, DENY HIM (THE CREATOR & ALAHIM WITHIN US ALREADY) … WHERE CAN WE RUN? WHERE CAN WE HIDE FROM HIS MIGHTY HAND OF DISCIPLE?


THE PURPOSE OF SUCH A STRUGGLE IS BECAUSE NO FLESH BE EXPOSED TO HIM AND LIVE, THEREFORE HIS LOVE CAN ONLY BE MADE MANIFEST IN BROKEN, CRUSHED, DEAD VESSELS MADE ALIVE THROUGH HIS RESURRECTION AND ESTEEMED POWER.


KEEP GOING MY BROTHERS & SISTERS …

YAHUSHA MAKE EVERYTHING FOR THE GOOD …

IF HIS HAND IS ON YOU IT’S BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU …

YOU CAN DO IT, OVERCOME, TRANSITION INTO THE WILDERNESS … PEACE & JOY IS IN THE HORIZON RIGHT WITHIN YOUR GRASP … SO KEEP GOING, KEEP RUNNING … IF YOU’VE FAINTED, GET BACK UP!
