Big Lesson 5 – Hebrews 12:5-6 (caring discipline)

Check out the cover of this book:

https://www.sovereignworld.com/loved-like-never-before/
Your heavenly Father God can be cuddly as it says in Romans 8, Abba Father (means Daddy God) with you on His lap.

There is also His tough love that teaches you to be strong so you can cope with life better. This kind of love is prudent e.g. when you put your hand too close to the fire place you get a smack on your wrist from Dad but you never burn your hand again for the rest of your life.

Hebrews 12:5‭-‬6 ESV

“And have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons? “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor be weary when reproved by him. For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.””

When things go wrong, ask yourself the question, is God disciplining me for something I have done wrong?

Maybe He has been trying to tell you for ages and you had been suffering lots but you did not change as you did not know.

If you start asking, finding out through prayer and then repenting of whatever it is, you will start to have a much more successful and joyful life. He is raising you as His child.

God is love and He will love you however He can in whatever situation or place you are in, in order to help you.

N.B; the book mentioned above is amazing. The Father figure is the most vital relationship you can have therefore this book will significantly strengthen your Christian walk i.e. people say “he knows the Father”.

The Father is greater than Jesus and He is the sovereign ruler of the whole universe.

A nice old hymn about your Father in heaven:

Father God I wonder how I managed to exist without the knowledge of your parenthood and your loving care.

But now I am your son, I am adopted in your family, I can never be alone as Father God your here beside me.

I will sing your praises.

I will sing your praises.

I will sing your praises for forever more.

You are His biological child and He can never let you go.

He is outside of time and knows the future perfectly thus He is perfectly powerful.

He is God thus He can pause time, rearrange things and then press play again e.g.

  • World war 1 1914 Christmas truce football match.
  • Joshua 10:13 when the sun stopped (how we measure time).

Selah. You are safe child 💛

Your authority in Christ – see miracles

Did you know Christian Brother or Sister that when minions are persecuting you, be it verbal abuse, being drugged against your will or anything else, you can actually use your authority in Christ (providing you have faith) to make them or it stop instantly.

This is why:

“Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
Luke 10:19‭-‬20 ESV

This is how:

Think, believe and mean “in Jesus name I command you stop, in Jesus name!”. Now tap your foot or do something else appropriate to help confirm the belief (e.g. click fingers). Now think “thankyou Jesus they (or it) has stopped, amen”. Believe the Luke verse and wait for it to happen.

N.B; highest faith is praise but you cannot always do that even if you think of praise songs. Think these words “Jesus you are good” and mean it. A more rooted and constant faith comes from knowing the Word. I have said it before and will say it again:

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.”
Romans 10:17 ESV

N.B; Click or tap foot but be wise and inventive e.g. clicking your finger in a muscly minions face will give you a nobbly nose if you do not have sufficient faith.

Pray to Jesus that He would help you to use your authority. Persevere and you will get it. He did not say Luke 10:19-20 as if it was not a present for you.

You will see some pretty cool things if you learn this.

Selah, it’s the belief that counts when you do it therefore it can be a “calm” command.

About me

I give advice on Worthy Christian Forums website too.

I struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder over Winter so please forgive me if I snarl like a zombie. Someone recommended that I should do gentle purring instead. Only being silly but I do get SAD.

I am an abuse victim and run half marathons for survivors.org.uk.

I have been put on medication due to the torment in my mind. This has caused additional problems therefore I meditate and it helps. I would not meditate as a Christian if I did not understand. Proverbs 3:13 is a blessing. Christians do yoga and pilates quite a bit. I do pilates. Christian culture in this country IMO is a bit weary of mindfullness. I do it in faith and understanding given my mental health. Chinese wisdom talks of qi energy flow and other religions call this different things. I meditate (comparable to yoga) to mend the energy flow in my body that my medication effects. I do not recommend this for other Christians unless you have mental problems and also understand it. The faith I have to do it protects me when I empty my thoughts.

  • I do cycling and running daily to keep fit and healthy. I have done the last three Chesterfield half-marathons for charity and have signed up for the 2020 Chesterfield half-marathon. I have done 10k races recently and have registered for more.
  • I do mindfullness for my mental health.
  • I have lots of fruit and veg. I love jackets potatoes lol.
  • I do pilates for my core and chin ups for my upper body strength.
  • I volunteer at a charity shop.
  • I think the NHS is very good and have been a great help with my mental health. I am a high functioning patient.

The pain has brought me closer to God and I have mostly come to know Jesus in suffering.

I believe that if you are going to help somebody suffering, then you should have been through it yourself. Then you understand.

Jesus went through everything for us, so He is the best person to help us and He is God.

Alone and afraid solutions for Corona

Do you feel lonely? You are not the only person who feels like that.

Are you afraid too? You are not the only person.

It might feel like you are the only person suffering at the moment. This does not mean that you are not suffering. Feeling like you are the only one is a symptom of the suffering though so if you realise that there are thousands of people in the same situation as you then it helps to know it is not just you. It helps even more if you pray for them as it takes you out of yourself like a third peron view. Things make sense when you do this well.

You are not actually alone and also, you need not be afraid. Let me explain.

I need to help you believe the truth that Jesus is sitting right next to you.

Jesus is love, Jesus is God and God is Spirit. One of the definitions of God is that He is omnipresent i.e. He is everywhere as He is God. He is omnipotent which means He is very powerful and if someone very powerful is on your team then you need not be afraid.

Well lets say why there is a spiritual realm first so we can do the rest.

If your are fortunate enough be clever from birth then you can look up the “Cosmological argument”. This is where a monk with a big beard has sat at a monastry for a long time with big books, candles and scrolls at his desk to figure something out. If Jesus was taken to court then it would be revealed that He is the son of God. This is how we should decide as this how we decide for other people in this world. If it was a fair case then He would be revealed. The devil has tangled up so much of our thinking though e.g. science as a how for now is positive, but the spiritual why is lost to science’s over use. Philosophers debate that theories we base science on now, were not perfect long ago, thus making an domino effect of wrongness. I believe that a spiritual why like loving people shifts the universe like a living organism and leads to the science how of you being happy, like dopamine in your brain.

Or you could consider things like beauty. Do you think that beauty is skin deep. Do you think that beauty is just things like the shape of a pretty woman’s face and when that model gets home she feels empty for being manipulated by that industry. What about the shiny eyes of a slightly more plump black Momma? Or a medium weight very spiritual African lady. Her beauty is the energy and enthusiasm inside her.

A spiritual thing and don’t forget we are dumbed down in some countries. We will see many more tangible spiritual things in third world countries.

Jesus now. We have been using AD Anno Domini in our calendar for 2020 years and before that was BC Before Christ.

Any historian cannot deny the existence of Jesus but then according to C.S Lewis we are left with only three things He could be; bad, sad or divine.

  1. A tyrant who manipulated people for his own purposes.
  2. A mad man who was possessed.
  3. God. Divine.

The bible’s authenticity far out weighs any secular writing of its time. Check out the statistics from a valid source of its historical validity based on the number of copies of itself.

So the historian then reads in the bible that Jesus Christ died a very painful sacrificial death for people He loved. He is not bad then.

2. He was able to rationalize and use logic e.g. He stunned the thinkers of that time with His answers to their difficult questions.

We are left with number three.

Guys, He loves you very much.

Try praying. Praying will work if your heart is true. Genuinely ask for His help. Can you think how true your heart would be if you were in desperate danger e.g. hiding from a violent person. Trying to find help when there is no other way, believing that Jesus is also there in that situation.

“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5 ESV

Jesus can comfort you. Ask Him in prayer for understanding and find rest in Him.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28‭-‬30 ESV

Maybe you will read this and pray successfully e.g. maybe He will remind you of memories of when it was actually God who kept you alive after overdoses or how He collected your tears in a bottle because of the pain that made you do it.

He loves us unconditionaly no matter how naughty we have been (don’t be naughty, it hurts you) so just pray and mean this:

“Lord Jesus I realise I am a human and I struggle with being naughty. You said in your love letter (the bible), that you would forgive me. Please forgive me and help me to be a better person and love my neighbour. Jesus I believe you are God and that you rose from the dead after the cross where you died for my naughtiness. Please help me to cuddle up to you in your warm powerful arms. Please I need someone to help me”.

Read and learn the advice from this blog in order to stay a Christian and keep the assurance, purpose and significance this brings to your life in Jesus Christ.

Don’t just taste the gift and fall away like is written in the book of Hebrews. Life would become worse than before you trusted in Christ then. I am not trying to manipulate you. Jesus is saying something to keep you in His love. Check out what it says:

Hebrews 6:4-6 NKJV

For it is impossible for those who were
once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become
partakers of the Holy Spirit,
and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them againto repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God,
and put Him to an open shame.

to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God,
and put Him to an open shame.

So if you make the commitment then make sure you do it with all of your heart.

Maintain your faith by learning your bible. Keeping in contact with true, bible believing and loving warm Christians. Keeping the understanding of the cross of Jesus Christ central in your faith. Find ways to go to a healthy church and ask the Pastor for advice. Say to the Pastor that you have just made the commitment to be a Christian and follow Jesus. Keep praying to Jesus and He will help you.

Knowing Jesus is something very special and is from another world. When you realise that you are loved by Him, the things of this world seem different, distant. You think of eternity in heaven where it is just love. There is nothing else that matters. You realise that there is no greater gift that a human can possess.

Satisfaction in thankfulness to God for His gifts, the best bitterness remedy

John Piper is a famous preacher and he once said “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him”.

I really do believe this is right.

Also did you know that the opposite of bitterness is thankfulness and being thankful gets rid of the bitterness.

SO…

Make yourself a coffee and sit down with your favourite bible version. Maybe read a Psalm for a bit of faith and just think of the good things in your life and say thankyou to God for them and why you like them.

This will be satisfying and enjoyable if done right:

– “Jesus, thankyou for your steadfast love in giving me this house after I was homeless before, I am so happy to have a roof and warmth. Even if I am alone this Christmas, you are with me always”.

– “Jesus, thankyou for coffee lattes that are delicous and they do not cost much”.

– “Thankyou for chocolate, it is a rather nice thing, I am so thankful that we are in an easy country.”

– “Jesus thankyou for my warm snuggly dressing gown and slippers, they help me to be cosy”.

– “Jesus thankyou that I have you as my closest friend who holds me by my right hand. I know I am homeless, but let’s layer up and have a coffee and a prayer in the tent”.

– Think of your own ones. Maybe for your family or for you health but remember to say why you like it so that it works and say thankyou.

Selah…. shalom 🍰

P.S don’t drink too much caffeine. Be sensible please.
