YE ARE MY CHILDREN OR YE ARE BASTARDS. Posted 083120 @ 12.22 pm
I have a word for the Body. The Father is saying: YE ARE MY CHILDREN OR YE ARE BASTARDS. It is written in Hebrews 12.8: But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. As Tyrus did build herself a stronghold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets, behold, I will cast her out, and will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire. And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines. Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, thy King cometh unto thee; He is just, and having salvation, lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off; and He shall speak peace unto the heathen; and His dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from river even to the ends of the earth. As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children: My son, despise not My chastening, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Me; for whom I love, I chasten, and scourge every son whom I receive. If ye endure chastening, I deal with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? Furthermore, ye have had fathers of your flesh which corrected you, and ye gave them reverence; shall ye not much rather be in subjection unto your Heavenly Father and live? For they verily for a few days chastened you after their own pleasure; but I for your profit, that ye might be partakers of My holiness. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous; nevertheless, afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. Surely it is meet to be said unto Me: I have borne chastisement, I will not offend anymore; that which I see not teach thou me; if I have done iniquity, I will do no more. He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
If ye confess your sins, I am faithful and just to forgive your sins, and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from My presence. I am not slack concerning My promise, as some men count slackness; but am longsuffering toward you, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Fear Me, and keep My commandments: for this is the whole duty of man, and bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance. He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but My wrath abideth on him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. If ye say that ye have no sin, ye deceive yourselves, and the truth is not in you.
Therefore, thou shalt love Me, and keep My charge, and My statutes, and My judgments, and My commandments always. And know ye this day: for I speak not with your children which have not known, and which have not seen My chastisement, My greatness, My mighty hand, and My stretched out arm, and My miracles, and My acts, which I did in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh the king of Egypt, and unto all his land; and what I did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how I made the water of the Red Sea to overflow them as they pursued after you, and how I destroyed them unto this day; and what I did unto you in the wilderness, until ye came unto this place; and what I did unto Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, the son of Reuben; how the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households, and their tents, and all the substance that was in their possession, in the midst of all Israel.
Therefore shall ye keep all My commandments, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which I swore unto your fathers to give unto them and to their seed, a land that floweth with milk and honey. It shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto My commandments, to love Me and to serve Me with all your heart and with all your soul, that I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil. And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full. Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; and then My wrath be kindled against you, and I shut up the heaven, and there be no rain, and the land yield not her fruit, and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which I have given you.
Turn you to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope; even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee; when I have bent Judah for Me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man. And I shall be seen over them, and My arrow shall go forth as the lightning; and I shall blow the trump and shall go with the whirlwinds of the south. I shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the altar. And I shall save them in that day as the flock of My people; for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon My land. For My goodness is great, and My beauty is great! Corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids. Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours; from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be. There shall no man be able to stand before you; for I shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon. I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; a blessing if ye obey My commandments, and a curse if ye will not obey My commandments, but turn aside out of the way, to go after other gods which ye have not known. YE ARE MY CHILDREN OR YE ARE BASTARDS! Amen.
ALL IS WELL AND WELL IS ALL.
