Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Has the Lord ever used one of His Servants to bring a message of correction and you received it with joy? Most of the time it doesn’t feel good but how joyful it is when our ears are opened to hear that He loves us just that much. Praise God for sending messengers of correction. God only discipline those He love.
Peace and Mercy on Christ Jesus,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
But I warned them and said, “Why do you spend the night by the wall? If you do this again, I will arrest you.” From that time on they no longer came on the Sabbath. Then I commanded the Levites to purify themselves and go and guard the gates in order to keep the Sabbath day holy. Remember me for this also, my God, and show mercy to me according to your great love. Moreover, in those days I saw men of Judah who had married women from Ashdod, Ammon and Moab. Half of their children spoke the language of Ashdod or the language of one of the other peoples, and did not know how to speak the language of Judah. I rebuked them and called curses down on them. I beat some of the men and pulled out their hair. I made them take an oath in God’s name and said: “You are not to give your daughters in marriage to their sons, nor are you to take their daughters in marriage for your sons or for yourselves.
Nehemiah 13:21-25 NIV
