Love Disciplines And Rebukes – Exploring Love In The New Age.
I often hear people saying that we shouldn’t talk about hell because it will make people fearful and lead them away from God.
Apparently we should only talk about God’s unfailing and abundant love but we should sweep his wrath under the carpet.
Yes, I also once thought that way. But not anymore.
The same God who was pleased seeing his own innocent son suffer on the cross because he had taken the whole sin of the world and offered himself as a sacrifice?
“Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.”
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
People should really stop fooling themselves.
We mortals have really taken God for granted but the day he decides enough is enough, I can’t fathom what will happen to this earth.
And he made his grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death;
because he had done no violence,
neither was any deceit in his mouth.
“As many as I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be committed and repent. 20 Listen! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and have dinner with him, and he with Me.”
Discipline and rebuke is not hateful like New age and secular media would like us to believe. Unfortunately, If we remain indisciplined and refuse to change, God will send us to hell.
I urge you brethren, if you have any sin in your life, please confess it to God, ask him to forgive you and to cleanse you with his precious blood. Repent and ask Jesus for his Holy Spirit to guide you and lead you.
Let us no take God’s love, his mercy, his compassion and his kindness for granted.
