If you love your son, you’ll do everything to care for him. If he goes a wrong way, you’ll bring him back to the right way. If he does anything wrong, you’ll discipline him with a rod. If you fail to discipline him, he’ll end up on the wrong side. The fact that you discipline him doesn’t mean you want to kill him. A good father chastises his own son because he loves him, but a foolish father neglects his son whenever he does anything wrong. I Am the Almighty Father. I chastise those I love.
Many of you think you love your children by pampering them. You pampered them to the extent that evil took them away from you. If you sow a seed, it’ll germinate and grow until it becomes a tree. While it’s still young, you can bend it to whichever direction you want. But when it’s full grown, you can’t bend it anymore because the time of bending has passed. You failed to sow a good seed in the heart of your children. Every good word you speak to your children is like sowing a good seed. If you sow a good seed, you’ll reap good fruits. But if you fail to sow a good seed into the heart of your children, somebody is there who’ll help you sow an evil seed and you know that person.
All the children all of you call your children are not children at all. Evil has dominated their heart because of what you taught them. Because your parents suffered to care for you, you don’t want your children to pass through hardship, therefore, you use every luxury to train them. If luxury is no more there, what will they do? This is why you see little children who have no responsibility on their shoulder committing suicide everywhere.
I Am the Almighty God and I Am a Father. No matter how old you are, you’re still My child. If I fail to discipline you, how will you think of going to Heaven? If I neither discipline nor chastise you, that means you’re doomed for Hellfire already because I discipline those I love. The time I’m chastising you, you’re like a car in the hand of the panelbeater. You’ll feel the pains in your body as if all your bones are cracking because I want to reshape and remould you. But when I finish, you’ll thank Me in the end.
Many of My children ran away from Me because they hated My discipline. If you run away from Me, to whom shall you go? You automatically handover yourself to evil to devour. And if evil devour you, you’ll cry and run back to Me. Who is fooling who? You’re only fooling yourself. If you call Me Father today and tomorrow you say I’m no more your Father, I will not be moved. Then if you come back another day and say that I’m your Father, I will still not be moved. I know I’m your Father. But the time you disowned Me and went your own way, I may not be able to erase the bruises that your disobedience will inflict on you.
