Correction & Discipline

We have listed various passages related to the disciplining of the assembly that the wimpy churches rarely preach if ever at all.  These passages are imperative to the image, stamina, brotherhood, and longevity of a true remnant which hopes to remain upright and blemishless as "undefiled with women" (false church doctrine), being thereby uncompromised and thereby a blameless witness to the world.   

These were very common passages preached by the true fire and brimstone preachers of the Puritan era, an era of strictly embraced purity to God's truth that had been triggered by the "95 thesis" of 1517 in Wittenberg Germany and had moved to and prospered in the America's of the 1600's.  This rigid,
disciplined way of life was commonly understood to be absolutely necessary to assuring themselves a life of deifically-protected freedom from all oppression and tyranny, a European problem that the Puritans and their immediate fathers were very much familiar with at that time, which helps to explain the Puritan's universal acceptance to this lifestyle of wholsome brotherhood, making them a historic beacon of steadfast faith and devotion to the rest of the noticing world.  Little did they know that they were to soon be corrupted by a vast luciferian/Jesuit scheme of liberal political correctness that would re-infect them and thereby deceive their next generations into signing pacts with those very same families of oppressors all over again beginning in the 1780's and thereabouts.  

There are many more of these types of verses that can be listed, and perhaps I will add certain ones from time to time, but these should suffice for now. (emphasis in some verses mine)    -dwaine

OLD TESTAMENT:

(17) Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

(18) When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

(19) Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

(20) Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

(21) Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul. Ezekiel 3:17-21


NEW TESTAMENT:

Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 1Timothy 5:20

(10) For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

(11) Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. …

(13) This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

(14) Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

(15) Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.

(16) They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. Titus 1:10-16

And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God. Acts 19:8

(18) Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

(19) And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

(20) For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. Ephesians 6:18-20

These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 2:15

For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. Hebrews 12:6



Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren. 1 Timothy 5:1

(note: unlike today, fathers used to be treated with tremendous respect)


Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. 1 Timothy 5:19



Found to also be necessary to include for consideration in keeping order as of 9-22-2012:


(11) Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

(12) But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

(13) For Adam was first formed, then Eve.

(14) And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

(15) Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.  

1Ti 2:11-15

(31) For ye may all prophesy one by one, that all may learn, and all may be comforted.

(32) And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

(33) For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

(34) Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.

(35) And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for a women to speak in the church.  

1Co 14:31-35

Be respectful in YHWH’s assemblies:

(1) Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.

(2) Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. Ecc 5:1-2

Added 9-24-2012

Keep your word:

(4) When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.

(12) But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. Jas 5:12


And last but surely not least, many folks think that John the Baptist was a very rude man, constantly putting people down and loudly telling them about their sins.   But what did Yeshua (Jesus) say about him?   Was John the Baptist a "meanie" as the modern churches make such people out to be?  Take a look at a chart we put together about sixteen years ago and have reposted here for someone who asked if we could put it up for him again:
