“It’s a Privilege to Be Corrected By God” – Todd Johnson
Bastards don’t get correction or repent they just get their heart hardened in their error, and they succeed in sin, which is really failure.
And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
