THE LORD'S REBUKE
I have been afflicted, That I may learn
PROVERBS 3:11-12 NKJV
11 My son, do not despise the chastening of the
Lord, Nor detest His correction;
12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects, Just as a
father the son in whom he delights.
PROVERBS 13:24 NKJV
He who spares his rod hates his son,
But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.
PROVERBS 19:18 NKJV
Chasten your son while there is hope,
And do not set your heart on his destruction.
PROVERBS 23:13 NKJV
Do not withhold correction from a
child, For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die.
HEBREWS 12:5-11 NKJV
5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which
speaks to you as to sons: "My son, do not
despise the chastening of the Lord, Nor be discouraged when you
are rebuked by Him;
6 For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And
scourges every son whom He receives."
7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you
as with sons; for what son is there whom a
father does not chasten?
8 But if you are without chastening, of which
all have become partakers, then you are
illegitimate and not sons.
9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who
corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall
we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of
spirits and live?
10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as
seemed best to them, but He for our profit,
that we may be partakers of His holiness.
11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the
present, but grievous; nevertheless, afterward it
yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have
been trained by it.
1 PETER 5:6-11 NKJV
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty
hand of God, that He may exalt you in due
7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your
adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking
whom he may devour.
9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing
that the some sufferings are experienced by your
brotherhood in the world.
10 But may the God of all grace, who called us to
His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you
have suffered awhile, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle
11 To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and
REVELATION 3:19 NKJV
"As many as I love, I rebuke and
chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
