Child, I weep when you weep — 5 Comments

  1. Hebrews 4:15 (KJV)
    For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

    Hebrews 2:14-18 (NKJV)
    14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15 and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. 16 For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham. 17 Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18 For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.

  2. God wants all our attention all the time, because He knows what is best for us.  I can certainly understand His Message above, thank you Deborah.  He says, “Faced suddenly with disaster, small or large, whether it be in your body, in the bodies of others, or in your or their environment, turn instantly to Me. Refusing to be in panic, confidently wait upon the help I am always ready to offer. Start thanking Me for that help, though the problem seems humanly insurmountable, and see how swiftly I act. Disaster, disappointment, disease serve a purpose when they drive you to Me.”

  3. In reply to the above comment. Your refences of Herod, Pharoh , and etc..these were men evil in their ways. Sure, sin is disobedience and rebellion to God, starting with AAdam and Eve. God made this clear as consequences of mens free will actions.As fR as enxuring hardships, the scripture states that “no cicircumstance is uncommon to men”, and “When sin haz taken hold, they are lead astray by their own desires”. My husband passed away leaving me with two teens and a mortgage. I also lost my job. Not for one second do I think God was testing me. No. My life and that of my childrens has just taken a different direction. My husbund committed suicide to top it off. Please be careful to always love and honor Gods Word.It is up to each of us to apply its meaning to our lives. “Be slow to speak”..because you never know what is going on inside a person, that you just might happen to meet…much like myself.

    • Mam I am sorry for your loss. It may well not have been God testing or chastening you or your family. The response I gave where simply addressing several foundational things involved in Apastolic doctrine.

      A man was born blind and Jesus was asked what sin did this man commit that he was born blind. The answer of Jesus was none. So it is true down here we know in part.

      However, what I posted was in response to God never does such things. Sadly many are never given the doctrine to judge themselves or even as Job who was righteous and upright in the sight of God must go thru things. As men we seldom understand.

      Overseas I often feel sorry for those who have lost Christian members. The prosperity dominion doctrine and word of faith doctrines so popular. Are many times so lacking in doctrinal balance and rightly dividing the Word. They leave people angry at God. Realisticly even the souls under the alter and their bretheren destined to die in like manner spoken of in Revelation . Though they are clothed in robes of righteousness by God himself. Would be shunned by those who teach the aforementioned doctrines.

      I meant no offense. However if what I posted saves one life. stops one from going astray. helps one understand that Gods testing can be hard and chastening severe. Moving them closer to the Father in repentance if needed or trial that their character may be formed. Then I am glad I posted it. It was not meant as accusation or the only answer in the bible but to bring balance and light in the areas mentioned.

  4. it is true Jesus is touched by our infirmities, However in all honesty a simple study on chastening chastens ect. Reveals God will use those things. It is the premise of trial by fire.
    The fire will test the quality of each man’s work.
    (1 Corinthians 3:13)

    Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
    (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

    Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus.
    (2 Timothy 2:3)

    When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. (Ecclesiastes 7:14)

    Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? (Hebrews 12:7)

    As a matter of fact the Apostles actually taught on Gods intervention concerning both the saved and unsaved. When provoked
    Please see the following examples of God punishing believers for their sins in the new covenant:

    (1) Ananias & Saphira—Acts 5:1-14(2) The Galatian church—Galatians 6:7-8

    (3) The promiscuous church member at Corinth—I Corinthians 5:4-5; II Corinthians 2:6

    (4) Christian brothers who maintain certain sins—I Corinthians 5:9-13

    (5) Hymenaeus & Alexander—I Timothy 1:19-20; II Timothy 4:14

    (6) The younger widows—I Timothy 5:11-15

    (7) Sinning brothers—I Timothy 5:20

    (8) Believers who become lovers of money—I Timothy 6:9-10

    (9) Demas—II Timothy 4:10 (see also Colossians 4:14 & Philemon 24 for confirmation he was not only a believer, but a one-time preacher)

    (10) Huge segments of the seven churches in Asia (Revelation 2-3)

    Also note God’s divine judgment illustrated in the death of Herod (Acts 12:23), Elymas the sorcerer being struck with blindness (Acts 13:8-12) and God’s use of civil government to punish evil (Romans 13:1-6).

    To adequately lay a doctrinal foundation concerning these things. We see several foundational doctrines apply. Teaching on the cross and on our responsibility to be Holy Spirit led.
