Back to My Kids

I want to go back to my kids again today. Yesterday, if you will remember, I spoke of all my kids, and how they have either obeyed me or disobeyed me according to the decisions that they have made regarding the same.

If they have so chosen to disobey me, there are consequences and punishments. For instance, let’s say that Jackson refused to do the lunch dishes. The consequence of his actions is a punishment of doing the supper dishes for that day and then, more than likely, the dishes for the next day or two, all by himself. Or, let’s say, if Michaela chooses to put on her selfish cloak with her phone or radio or coloring utensils, she will suffer the consequence, which comes in the way of a punishment of losing her phone or radio, whatever she showed selfishness with. And, lest I leave little Alana- who isn’t really so little -out, she has a habit of being on her tablet when she is not supposed to be, and she will get her tablet taken away for a time.

But, what happens if, after one day of neglecting chores, being selfish, or being sneaky with a tablet, the kids- Jackson, Michaela, and Alana, respectively -continue to DELIBERATELY rebel against the rules they know are a part of being household members here at The Johnson Ranch?

If my children appreciate having shared household chores and electronics to waste their time with, they will learn not to do the deliberate things they do that get such consequences and punishments.

Alana says, “The worst punishment I’ve ever gotten was for saying potty mouth words. If I continued with my potty mouth words, the punishment would have gotten worse. I don’t like getting punished, so I quit using potty mouth words that my dad and mom don’t like me saying.”

Jackson says, “The worst punishment I’ve ever gotten is being grounded to my room all day one time for playing with my friend where my dad and mom said not to play. I learned my lesson, and, even though I’ve been punished plenty of other times, I’ve never done that thing again.”

Michaela says, “The worst punishment I’ve ever gotten when I got grounded for a month to my room with nothing to do because I took a knife, that didn’t belong to me, on the school bus. During this month, I felt embarrassed and sad because my dad had just gotten a new pool, and when it was set up, I couldn’t swim with the other kids for that whole month. Boy, did I learn my lesson. Never take things that don’t belong to me, and never take things that don’t belong to me on the school bus. I don’t really have to worry about that now, because here at my mom’s house, I am homeschooled.”

Deliberateness

Mashiakim Yehudim (Hebrews) 10:26-29--”For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remains no more a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and a fierceness of fire which will devour the adversaries. A man who disregards the Torah of Moshe dies without compassion on the word of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment do you think he will be judged worthy of who has trodden under foot the Son of YeHoVaH, and has counted the blood of the covenant with which he was sanctified an unholy thing, and has insulted ha-Ruach of grace?”

Continue in deliberate sin. Rejecting the very covenant that YeHoVaH established with His people. Thumbing your nose at ha-Meshiach Who spilled His blood for you. Closing off any and all communication with Ruach HaKodesh.

Do we not appreciate that YeHoVaH would sacrifice His Son because He loves us so much? Do we not appreciate the very sacrifice that Yahshua ha-Meshiach suffered to provide a way back to YeHoVaH? Do we not appreciate the guidance and leading of Ruach HaKodesh in order that we might bear the fruit that we are to bear?

YeHoVaH will always give to us forgiveness; but, He does so with an understanding that we who He forgives will turn from the sin which we committed, and though we may yet again be tempted by the same sin, we will wear the righteousness of Yahshua and heed the voice of Ruach HaKodesh and overcome the temptation to not commit the sin which we had previously been forgiven of.

In the Gan Eden (Garden of Eden), ha-ish ve ha-isha (the man and the woman) had one rule: Bereishit (Genesis) 2:16-17 says, “Adonai Eloheinu commanded the man, saying, ‘You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but you shall not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in the day that you eat of it, you will surely die.’” Ha-ish ve ha-isha needed only to obey what YeHoVaH had commanded. Today, we need only to obey what YeHoVaH has commanded.

The choice is yours.

Devarim (Deuteronomy) 30:19 says, “I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore choose life, that you may live, you and your descendants.”

A Blessing

Selach lanu, avinu, ki chatanu; mechal lanu malkeinu, ki pasha’nu; ki mochel v’soleiach ata. Baruch ata, Adonai, channun hammarbeh lisloach.

Forgive us, our Abba, for we have sinned; pardon us, our King, for we have rebelled; for You are a Pardoner and a Forgiver. Blessed are You, Adonai, the gracious One Who abundantly forgives.

As For Me and My House
