Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.– Psalm 137:9
Happy are those who’s children come to walk in His truth!
God is happy when we repent and believe on His Son Jesus Christ; just as a believing parent is when his or her child comes to true belief in the LORD!
In Isaiah 53:10 God tells us that It pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
The Father God Almighty saw fit and was pleased to bruise His Son for our good.
By His stripes we are healed!
The LORD is the same yesterday and today and forever so it is completely logical, and expected, that He will gladly do the same to us- as it is For our good- the only way to eternal life living in glory with Him forever!
He will spare most of us from enduring the literal physical bruising of martyrdom but all of His children will go through the fire of sanctification!
To be born again we must be dashed against the rock- Jesus- who’s light illuminates the sins in us with the purpose of leading to our repentance unto salvation for those who stay in the light- continuing their walk upon the narrow path to life! Those that refuse to walk in the light and those who turn back will be judged by His truth and will be found guilty- their sins condemning them- their ways and defenses will crumble like sand in the dark!
Matthew 21:44- And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
3 John 1:4- I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
