Father's Love involves Discipline

Beloved, take the word of GOD VERY SERIOUS, we cannot just pick scriptures we like and shuffle other ones under the carpet and then do our own thing. We take and consider all of God's word, or none at all.

God's word will judge your actions... the way you talk, the way you dress, the flirting eyes, your lust, your secret life... you know all about it... and so does our heavenly Father. 

There are things in your life you need/must clean up because they are not pleasing unto God, nor acceptable in His eyes. He will not allow your wrongs to pass through unnoticeable.

Love NOT the world, NEITHER the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is NOT IN HIM.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is NOT of the Father, but is of the world.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF GOD ABIDETH FOR EVER.
 1 John 2:15-17

Even in our places of fellowship there is worldliness which can easily be noticed. I am greatly moved by the Holy Spirit as I write this message to you. My heart cries for what gets around and is accepted as called being "Christian".

Let me tell you this... it is known that God keeps His promises, but do not forget that there is more written in God's word than only His promises. The Father will also keep us responsible to abide to the rest of the Scripture. He will reinforce His demand for HOLY living, if you call yourself a Child of God. This may find you on the "path" of dicipline for your own good, which may be far from pleasant.

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. Hebrew 12:11

There is HOPE for those who seek Him. His Light shines in the darkness and His promise is seen in the rainbow.

To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory: 
Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus: Colossians 1:27,28

Christ in us means that His transforming power is making the difference in our lives. If one does not see any difference in his/her life, they better go down on their knees, submit and surrender their ALL, walk in obedience unto His word and stretch out for MORE OF CHRIST.

An empty drinking glass can be filled to the brim, so it is with our personal life... empty of self and full of Christ. AMEN!

Be committed to God's word, act upon it. To abide in God takes more than being saved.

May our Father confirm His own Word to your heart, I pray.

Servant of the Most High,
Dr. Trudy Veerman
