Proverbs 20:30

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 30 The pain of a wound cleanses away evil, so do stripes purge the inward parts [including the heart] of man.5 [God disciplines and scourges every son he accepts, Heb 12:6; he who has suffered in the flesh is finished with sin. So that you should not live the rest of your time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but [live] to the will of God. 1 Pet 4:1-2.]

Hebrews 12:4,6,8

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 4 You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in striving against sin.3

 6 For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and He scourges every son whom he accepts."4 [The pain of a wound cleanses away evil, so do stripes purge the inward parts [including the heart] of man, Pro 20:30.]

 8 But if you are without discipline, of which all [true sons of God] must share, then you are illegitimate,5 and not sons. [He who has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin. So that you should not live the rest of your time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but [live according] to the will of God. 1 Pet 4:1-2.]

1 Peter 4:12

 12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial, which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; [Before purification and salvation, your faith must be tested in several trials, in which you must grievously suffer in order to be purified of sin. Salvation comes after suffering in various trials. "For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and scourges every son whom he accepts. If you are without discipline, of which all [true sons of God] must share, then you are illegitimate, and not sons." Heb 12:6,8. From the Word of the Lord within —"Tribulation: trial by fire." Salvation comes after suffering; in fact, there are seven trials every son must endure before salvation and being accepted as a son.]

1 Peter 4:1-2,19

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 Therefore, since Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same mind because he who has suffered in the flesh is finished with sin, [From the Word of the Lord within: "Any of you whose sting to bear has been hard, use these facts: 1) all have suffered before you; 2) sin is excoriated; 3) God will remove the burden in time; and 4) the same is experienced by every cleanliness-desired heart in the nations."]

 2 So that you should not live the rest of your time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but [live] to the will of God.1

 19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as to a faithful Creator.

 16 Above all, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.1

4 Esdras 9:11-13

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 11 And those who have loathed my law, while they yet had liberty, and when as yet the opportunity of repentance was open to them, understood not, but despised it; [The law includes the law that is on every man's heart.]

 12 The same must learn it after death by pain.2 [There is a forced repentance for those banned from heaven and sent to the outer darkness of Hell. Pain is used to rid a man from sins: The pain of a wound cleanses away evil, so do stripes purge the inward parts [including the heart] of man. Pro 20:30.]

 13 And therefore do not be curious how the ungodly shall be punished, and when; but inquire how the righteous shall be saved, whose the world is, and for whom the world is created."3 [The world was created to produce righteous sons of God, whose creation requires men to take up the cross and crucify their carnal minds and evil imaginations to receive a new heart, new mind, and new Spirit; so that they are pure enough to be God's servant on earth and forever, hearing from God the words to pray before praying, hearing from God the words to speak before speaking, and seeing from God what is to be done before doing it, thus to bring pleasure, honor, and glory to God.]
