God Disciplines His Children

This is the correct video even though it Has a different Name.

Aaron and Miriam seem to have an attitude about Moses not having an Israelite wife. They are thinking less of him and thinking more of themselves. God calls them out over it. He sets them apart. God calls them to come to Him. He calls them to step forward. While this is not a fun way to be set apart, receiving discipline from God means that you belong to Him.

Hebrews 12:6 (NIV) …the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.

Do you know the context of that verse? Here’s verse four. In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. You have not yet resisted sin to the point of shedding blood. Are you taking it that seriously? It sounds serious. God, as a good Father, will help us out. It’s a gift. People who think believers won’t be here for the Great Tribulation are missing this point. Tribulation is not a punishment. It’s a gift. Here are the next two verses from Hebrews 12.

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. 

In the letter to the lukewarm church in the book of Revelation, Jesus says he disciplines those He loves. We’re refined in fire. Jesus will have a spotless bride. Submit to the discipline. Don’t hide from it. Don’t seek an end to your troubles and tribulations. Seek Jesus and His righteousness. Prepare yourself for your wedding day.
