DON'T SPARE THE ROD

When speaking of the End Times events, Jesus shared a statement, just after warning us of false prophets and just before the warning of the abomination of desolation.

Here is what Jesus warned us of:

Matthew 24:12
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

What did Jesus mean by INIQUITY abounding and Love waxing cold?

He is saying that due to the overwhelming sin in the world, the LOVE within mankind would become hardened hearts.

Even within families ...

2 Timothy 3:1-4
This know also, that IN THE LAST DAYS perilous times shall come. For men shall be LOVERS OF OWN SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God ... 

Disobedient to parents …

I would like to share a story of a woman's teen children who would verbally and physically abuse her for years.

One of the favorite sayings from her own teenage child was "I was born to make your life hell" and these words echoed off the walls of that home, almost daily.

Here is but one example of the physical abuse ... Her teenage daughter walked into the Mother's bedroom and demanded money to hang with her friends and the Mother said no, so the teen hit the Mother in the face, knocked her down and tried to steal the purse having the Mother cling on to the purse in a tug of war.

Kinda like a mugging in your own home, by your own child.

The woman finally escaped the horror after the teen beat her yet again (But, for the last time) and then ran off to live with her Dad where she then assaulted his new wife and had a peace bond placed on her ...

This was the Mother's opportunity to be free.

Of course this teen would find reasons within their own mind to justify their actions and even find scapegoats to blame later in life.

However ... A tree is known by its fruits:

The common denominator in every physical assault was ONLY ... The teen.

This woman finally stood up and said ... NO more.

Then the teen took her verbal and physical abuse elsewhere.

Coolest thing is that the physical abuse she received, rushed the Mother into the arms of Jesus where she has been ever since.

NOTE: This is not only true with children and parents but husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends. If you are in a physically abusive relationship ... Get help early before it escalates. Run to Jesus and He will heal you.

We received an e-mail from someone who visited one of our counseling programs wrote this:

To whom this may concern:

Hi I am a missionary.

My husband slapped on my right cheek and kicked my left leg for the first in our almost 4 years of marriage...i am afraid domestic violence had just started in our home.

I am so hurt emotional and couldn't comprehend it happened!

Please pray for me...I have no one else to share it to...my closed friends are all overseas.

Thank you.

God bless you.


Please pray for this soul.

 

DON'T SPARE THE ROD

DON'T SPARE THE ROD STUDY ON DON'T SPARE THE ROD MEANING WITH DON'T SPARE THE ROD MESSAGE

What was it like when you were a child … What would happen if you so much as mouthed off to your parents?

Has not life changed in this last generation? I remember when a coach or principal could bend us over and give us swats at will. I remember a time when if we were bad at home, we got a spanking and or were grounded for the rest of our lives.

Now, the Bible seemed to back some parent’s play did it not?

With Scripture like this:

Proverbs 13:24
He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
 

And this …

Proverbs 29:15
The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

And this …

Proverbs 22:15
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
 

Oh and this bad boy …

Proverbs 23:13-14
Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
 

I am thinking my parents read this a LOT cuz they did not stop spanking just cuz I cried out:

Proverbs 19:18
Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
 

Abusive chastening is of course NOT what the Bible is speaking of, but as you can see, and every parent knows, children need discipline. And every child is different. One may learn from a simple time out.

Another may need other restrictions.

Some with gentleness ... Some with severity.

Jude 1:22-23
And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
 

Now, I am NOT one who believes in physical discipline. I believe that in most cases sharing TRUTH in a mutual respect should be able to overcome issues. I am merely pointing out how discipline has changed and how this generation seems to have gotten so much worse. I am thinking the parents of this generation got the wrong end of the “stick” …

We were taught to honor and obey.

Exodus 20:12
Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Now, let me say, right up front, that there are circumstances where some parents aren't very respectable, and if you're in such circumstances, please pray and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit about what to do. Certainly our loving Father doesn't want children to be abused by parents.

But if the child/teen/young adult has no justification for disrespecting the parents that God has put in charge of their soul, they are not only hurting their parents, but they are disobeying God's command, and hurting themselves.

 At what point do we say NO MORE?

From a parental point of view, requiring respect from your children may seem like an impossible goal, but if you give up before you even try, then you'll never achieve your objective.  

So, how does one attempt to achieve respect and obedience from their children?  

Well, obviously the best thing you can do is to teach them as early as possible ALL that you know about Biblical teachings:

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

 

Ephesians 6:4
….... bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
 

Another key to success is to keep them out of the world as much as possible. I can't stress to you enough how important this is, and believe me, you will have opposition from every angle when you choose to do this ... 

Because it's not worldly to stay out of the world ... It's Godly.

1 John 2:15-17
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.
 

 

James 4:4
... know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
 

So, what do you think?

DON'T SPARE THE ROD WARNING ON DON'T SPARE THE ROD DANGERS WITH DON'T SPARE THE ROD TRUTH

Why do we take such careful measures to insure the safety and protection of our children's physical well being against the world when they're infants, but when society dictates, or whenever we choose it's the right time, we don't bat an eye at turning their delicate little souls loose for the world to influence however it pleases?

What I'm saying is, that once a child learns the ways of the world, whether it be through school, or television, or books, or whispers, etc, it is more difficult to teach them a new habit. God knows that children can be unruly, and that's why tough love is part of His plan of discipline. The Bible confirms this many times.

It's frightening how much adults are like children in this way. If only we, as adults, would listen to our Heavenly Father, how much pain we could avoid in our lives. What was it that led us away? Was it that the world spoke up louder than our Father did when choices were presented to us? Or perhaps we just chose to ignore Him completely. Chances are, the consequences of our choices had a pretty loud volume too.

And WE, as children of the Lord … need to understand when we are disciplined by the Lord:

Hebrews 12:5-8
My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him: For whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

By good example, and awareness, you can help your children to recognize when the world is trying to lure them into the wrong choices, and surely, they will follow …

If not now ... Someday.
