MORNINGTIME 3750 

And know ye this day: for I (Moses) speak not with your children WHICH HAVE NOT KNOWN, and which have not seen THE CHASTISEMENT OF THE LORD your God, or His Greatness, His Mighty Hand, and His stretched out Arm, Deuteronomy 11:2. (Your children have no idea what the Chastisement of the Lord is like). Surely it is meet to be said unto God, I have borne (the) Chastisement (of the Lord and) I will not offend (Him) any more: Job 34:31. But if ye be without Chastisement, WHEREOF ALL (BELIEVERS) ARE PARTAKERS, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Hebrews 12:8.Strong's definition: CHASTISEMENT; "Figuratively {reproof} warning or instruction; also restraint: - bond, check, correction, discipline, doctrinal instruction with rebuke". The Lord's Chastisement on a Believer is Correction with Power and Authority against any "error" in their Walk with Christ. In short, the Lord does what He needs to to cleanse sin and error, (worldliness), from the Believer. This is one way the Lord shows His Love to and for His People, all to Grow His people to be like His Son. Whatever amount of "pain" a Believer has during Chastening, it's the amount of "grab" or holding power that "error" is trying to hang on with. A hard habit to let go of may take a harder "Don't" from the Lord to convince you to do "It" no more. Sometimes only a straight up Act of God can bring relief, "Because of your unbelief... this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting". "Matthew 17:20, 21. Rejoice Believers that the Lord Loves you so much that He will cause you "hurt" if that's what it takes to make you like His Son. Those willing to Grow in Christ are also willing to have the Lord do anything He needs to to accomplish His Purposes in and through us. Even the worldly recognize "hurt" can be good, like the old song says, "It hurts so good". Don't worry about Satan hiding behind every bush "ready to get you", ask the Lord to cleanse you and Trust Him to take care of it any way He wants to, that you, Be Blessed.
