I Shall Correct and Discipline All Those I Love
From Letters From God and His Christ
12/11/04 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord: My children, struggle not against the principles of another, nor rebuke them with your own words, nor correct them by your own understanding. Let go of your personal notions of right and wrong, and strive to love others in spite of yourselves, and have compassion for those with whom you disagree. Do not judge them, nor shun them in your heart... Rather love those who speak against you, because you obey My Word; bless those who curse you, and pray for those who mistreat you, as it is written.
Yet have no part with them, give them no platform to proliferate their sin; remain separate. For they do rebel against their God. Their argument is with Me, though it may seem as though you have become the object of their scorn. For they do always fight against Me, in an effort to justify their sins. For I have written The Law in the hearts of all men, all are able to discern right from wrong, thus they choose to rebel. Yet if they were not able and if in their hearts I did not write, then they would not be guilty, for there can be no rebellion in ignorance. Yet they do know, and for this reason they are guilty.
For I have indeed written it,
Even on tablets of stone and within the heart of man;
And within the pages of My Book it is made plain;
Thus they are without excuse...
For I am God alone, The Righteous One...
I alone am holy, just and good;
I alone have divided right from wrong;
I alone have established The Law and define what is sin...
Behold, I expose the darkness and bring all hidden things into the light;
For I alone sit as Judge, The Only Faithful and True Witness.
For I tell you the truth, it is the evil and slothful parent who does not correct and discipline their children. And by neglect does a parent do more harm than good, more so than the parent who has put forth the effort, yet erred while doing so. For though they have misled their children, here a little and there a little, they have shown them love by their effort. And from this foundation will those children, in time, lead their own children rightly. Yet those who make no effort at all are slothful; behold, wickedness waits for them, and sin crouches at the door. For though they believe within themselves they have done no wrong, by their neglect have they heaped up mounds of dissension, malice, unruliness and hate within the hearts of their offspring.
Therefore, let it be known to you, O peoples of the earth, and to all who dwell within the churches of men, I must bring My hand against you, I must correct and discipline all those I love. For you have gone astray; behold, from Me you are far removed. And with great malice you do always persecute those I send to you, rejecting the Word given them on account of your pride, persecuting them in word and by deed, stoning some and killing others... Therefore in My jealousy I shall speak, and in the fire of My wrath I shall rebuke you! Behold, My wrath shall come forth and My judgment shall not sleep! For I am coming down to correct, to discipline, and to punish, to pour out judgment upon the whole of this wicked generation! Yet those who repent in sincerity and in truth will be delivered, and those who turn from their evil ways will be shown mercy. For I do not change, says The Lord.
Thus says The Lord: Oh you blind leaders of the blind, dumb people who attempt to speak to the deaf, you are lost. Only by accepting Me as I truly am are you found. You fear I am coming to destroy you. I am not coming to destroy you, but to humble you, that you might be delivered from all this evil which encompasses you round about; I am coming to destroy that which stands against Me, to tear down all man has made!... Beloved ones, I am your Father, and I know your hearts, I see all your doings! And I know you have no love for God in your hearts! Yet I love you still, and I shall surely be a father unto you! For I do not neglect those I love, nor do I ignore those who ignore Me.
Therefore, again I say to you,
I shall surely correct and discipline all those I love,
And upon this most wicked generation shall I pour out judgment...
Yet as it is written,
I will do nothing until I have revealed
My plans to My servants, the prophets...
For I am The Lord, and I do not change.
