The Lords discipline and training

WE HAVE BEEN DISCIPLINED BY OUR PARENTS OUR SCHOOLS AND BY EVERY EMPLOYER WE'VE WORKED FOR. EVEN OUR OWN SELF DISCIPLINE ENGAGES US ON COURSE FOR OUR OWN BENEFIT IN THE WORLD. OUR PARENTS RAISED US AND DISCIPLINED US IN THE WAY THEY BELIEVE RIGHT WE SHOULD LIVE. THE SCHOOLS AND INSTITUTE PUT THEIR DISCIPLINE FOR US TO CONFORM AND ADAPT TO THE POWERS OF STATE AND MODERN COMMUNITY. OUR EMPLOYERS DISCIPLINED US TO OBEY AND DO THINGS THEIR WAY TO BENEFIT THEIR OPERATIONS.


THE SCRIPTURES BELOW ARE ABOUT THE LORDS DISCIPLINE . THEY ARE ABOUT HOW EVEN AFTER WE'RE DISCIPLINED BY OUR PARENTS AND THE INSTITUTE SO WE CAN SUCCEED HOW THEY TAUGHT US. WE MAY EXPERIENCE HARD TIMES SO THAT GOD CAN TEACH US HIS WAY AND WHATS RIGHT TO HIM. AS MUCH AS OUR PARENTS TEACH US. THE LORD MAY OF CONSIDERED NOT TO HIS STANDARD. THE LORD MAY HAVE MANY MORE THINGS TO TEACH US IN THE SPIRIT SO THAT WE MAY ACCOMPLISH AS JESUS CHRIST NOT JUST DO AS THE WORLD AND ITS INSTITUTE.

SCRIPTURES EXPLAIN THAT THE LORD TRAINED KING DAVIDS HANDS TO WAR HIMSELF AND THAT WAS SO THAT IT WASNT THE TRAINING OF THE MILITARY THAT WAS GLORIFIED BUT SO THAT GOD HIMSELF WAS GLORIFIED AND HIS OWN CAUSE THE REAL FIGHT.







Hebrews 12:7-10 (New International Reader's Version)
New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

7 Put up with hard times. God uses them to train you. He is treating you as children. What children are not trained by their parents? 8 God trains all of his children. But what if he doesn't train you? Then you are like children of people who weren't married to each other. You are not truly God's children.
9 Besides, we have all had human parents who trained us. We respected them for it. How much more should we be trained by the Father of our spirits and live!
10 Our parents trained us for a little while. They did what they thought was best. But God trains us for our good. He wants us to share in his holiness.

[Hebrews 12]
{12:1} Furthermore, since we also have so great a cloud of witnesses over us, let us set aside every burden and sin which may surround us, and advance, through patience, to the struggle offered to us.
{12:2} Let us gaze upon Jesus, as the Author and the completion of our faith, who, having joy laid out before him, endured the cross, disregarding the shame, and who now sits at the right hand of the throne of God.
{12:3} So then, meditate upon him who endured such adversity from sinners against himself, so that you may not become weary, failing in your souls.
{12:4} For you have not yet resisted unto blood, while striving against sin.
{12:5} And you have forgotten the consolation which speaks to you like sons, saying: "My son, do not be willing to neglect the discipline of the Lord. Neither should you become weary, while being rebuked by him."
{12:6} For whomever the Lord loves, he chastises. And every son whom he accepts, he scourges.
{12:7} Persevere in discipline. God presents you to himself as sons. But what son is there, whom his father does not correct?
{12:8} But if you are without that discipline in which all have become sharers, then you are of adultery, and you are not sons.
{12:9} Then, too, we have certainly had the fathers of our flesh as instructors, and we reverenced them. Should we not obey the Father of spirits all the more, and so live?
{12:10} And indeed, for a few days and according to their own wishes, they instructed us. But he does so to our benefit, so that we may receive his sanctification.
{12:11} Now every discipline, in the present time, does not seem a gladness, of course, but a grief. But afterwards, it will repay a most peaceful fruit of justice to those who become trained in it.
{12:12} Because of this, lift up your lazy hands and your lax knees,
{12:13} and straighten the path of your feet, so that no one, being lame, may wander astray, but instead may be healed.
{12:14} Pursue peace with everyone. Pursue sanctity, without which no one shall see God.
{12:15} Be contemplative, lest anyone lack the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness spring up and impede you, and by it, many might be defiled,
{12:16} lest any fornicator or worldly person be like Esau, who, for the sake of one meal, sold his birthright.
{12:17} For you know that afterwards, when he desired to inherit the benediction, he was rejected. For he found no place for repentance, even though he had sought it with tears.
{12:18} But you have not drawn near to a tangible mountain, or a burning fire, or a whirlwind, or a mist, or a storm,
{12:19} or the sound of a trumpet, or a voice of words. Those who had experienced these things excused themselves, lest the Word be spoken to them.
{12:20} For they could not bear what was said, and so, if even a beast would have touched the mountain, it would have been stoned.
{12:21} And what was seen was so terrible that even Moses said: "I am terrified, and so, I tremble."
{12:22} But you have drawn near to mount Zion, and to the city of the living God, to the heavenly Jerusalem, and to the company of many thousands of Angels,
{12:23} and to the Church of the first-born, those who have been inscribed in the heavens, and to God, the judge of all, and to the spirits of the just made perfect,
{12:24} and to Jesus, the Mediator of the New Testament, and to a sprinkling of blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.
{12:25} Be careful not to reject the One who is speaking. For if those who rejected him who was speaking upon the earth were not able to escape, so much more we who might turn away from the One who is speaking to us from heaven.
{12:26} Then, his voice moved the earth. But now, he makes a promise, saying: "There is still one more time, and then I will move not only the earth, but also heaven itself."
{12:27} And so, in saying, "There is still one more time," he declares the transfer of the moveable things of creation, so that those things which are immoveable may remain.
{12:28} Thus, in receiving an immoveable kingdom, we have grace. So, through grace, let us be of service, by pleasing God with fear and reverence.
{12:29} For our God is a consuming fire.



1ST TIMOTHY 4:8


Ver. 8. "For bodily exercise[4] profiteth little." This has by some been referred to fasting; but away with such a notion! for that is not a bodily but a spiritual exercise. If it were bodily it would nourish the body, whereas it wastes and makes it lean, so that it is not bodily. Hence he is not speaking of the discipline[5] of the body. What we need, therefore, is the exercise[6] of the soul. For the exercise of the body hath no profit, but may benefit the body a little, but the exercise[7] of godliness yields fruit and advantage both here and hereafter.
