Connections and Comparisons is an ongoing weekly series that deals with many scriptures in the Bible, some of which are not commonly addressed. The purpose of this series is to examine the scriptures at hand comparing what is said and looking at the connections within.
11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
Bring your children to Jesus and teach them the Word of God!!
13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
Bring your children to Jesus and teach them by your own submission to the Word of God!!
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
I Submit to You that You Do Not Love YOUR CHILD OR YOUR CHILDREN!
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
Fathers you are the head of your family and you must enforce correction and discipline if you love your child or your children!!
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Wives if you are not submitting yourself to your husband and are rebellious against your husband’s authority over you, you are rebellious against God and his divine order given to us!! You are to submit to your husband as unto the Lord!! For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church!!
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Husbands if you do not love your wives even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it then you are failing God and your family!! So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself!!
1 Samuel 15:23
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
Fathers and Mothers must correct their children as the Bible teaches or you do not love your child or your children!!
And they shall keep the way of the LORD!!
18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
Husbands you are the head of the home and you must obey the Lord and instruct your family in the ways of the Lord!! Or you have failed God, your wife, and your children!!
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.
18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
I Submit to You that You Do Not Love YOUR CHILD OR YOUR CHILDREN!! YOU HATE YOUR SOUL AND YOU HATE THEIR SOULS!!
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
YOU LOVE YOUR OWN SELF AND YOUR FLESHLY, LUSTFUL DESIRES!! YOU HAVE BECOME YOUR OWN GOD!! A WORSHIPER OF YOUR OWN SELF!!
33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.
32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
24 He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.
Betimes: Early; quickly.—King James Dictionary
IT DOESN’T GET ANY PLAINER THAN THAT!! IF YOU SPARE THE ROD YOU HATE YOUR CHILD OR YOUR CHILDREN!! IF YOU LOVE THEM YOU WILL CORRECT THEM SPEEDILY!!
12 Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
15 My son, if thine heart be wise, my heart shall rejoice, even mine.
15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.
17 Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.
YOU ACTUALLY HATE YOUR CHILD’S SOUL!! LOVERS OF FLESHLY LUSTS AND FLESHLY DESIRES WHOSE GOD IS YOUR BELLY!!
2 Timothy 3:16-17
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
FATHERS AND MOTHERS YOU ARE TO DILIGENTLY TEACH YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN THE WORD OF GOD!!
9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
FATHERS AND MOTHERS YOU ARE TO DILIGENTLY TEACH YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN THE WORD OF GOD!! NOT JUST STORY BOOK PICTURES AND FAIRY TALES!! BE DILIGENT AND WISE!!
13 And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
19 The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth.
FATHERS AND MOTHERS YOU MUST LOVE YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN!! CORRECTING THEM ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES AND YOU YOURSELF MUST ALSO NOT BE A HYPOCRITE!! BUT TEACHING THEM BY YOUR EXAMPLE!!
2 Timothy 1:3-5
3 I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;
4 Greatly desiring to see thee, being mindful of thy tears, that I may be filled with joy;
5 When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.
2 Timothy 3:14-15
14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
FATHERS!! STOP NEGLECTING YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AS THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY!! YOU ARE COMMANDED TO BRING YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN UP IN THE NURTURE AND ADMONITION OF THE LORD!! TO DO THIS YOU MUST STOP WORSHIPING YOUR OWN SELF AND START LOVING JESUS CHRIST AND LEARN OF HIM SO THAT YOU CAN BE THE HUSBAND AND FATHER YOUR FAMILY NEEDS YOU TO BE!!
26 He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
Children are an Heritage of the LORD: and the Fruit of the Womb is HIS REWARD!!
1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
16 These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
STOP SHEDDING INNOCENT BLOOD!! STOP MURDERING YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN IN THE WOMB OR OTHERWISE!! CHILDREN ARE AN HERITAGE OF THE LORD: AND THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB IS HIS REWARD!!
6 Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.
The Midwives of Egypt Refused Pharaoh’s Command to Murder the Hebrews’ Children BECAUSE THEY FEARED GOD!!
15 And the king of Egypt spake to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was Shiphrah, and the name of the other Puah:
16 And he said, When ye do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women, and see them upon the stools; if it be a son, then ye shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live.
17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.
18 And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive?
19 And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.
20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.
22 And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive.
THE MIDWIVES OF EGYPT REFUSED PHARAOH’S COMMAND TO MURDER THE HEBREWS’ CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY FEARED GOD!! BUT THEY WHO MURDER THEIR CHILD OR CHILDREN DO NOT FEAR GOD AND “IT IS A FEARFUL THING TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THE LIVING GOD.” (Hebrews 10:31)
1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.
2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.
4 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.
5 And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews’ children.
7 Then said his sister to Pharaoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the Hebrew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?
8 And Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child’s mother.
9 And Pharaoh’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the woman took the child, and nursed it.
10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
WHAT IF THE MIDWIVES OR MOSES’ PARENTS OBEYED PHARAOH? WHY THEN DO YOU OBEY DOCTORS AND YOUR PARENTS WHO DEMAND YOU TO KILL YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN AGAINST THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD???
23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.
24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;
25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.
To those of you that believe a baby that is not yet fully formed in the womb and is thereby ok to kill you greatly err concerning the scriptures and to those of you who have already lived through this nightmare of killing your child or children, God is a loving and forgiving God that is full of mercy to those who repent of their sins and are sure that they have been born again of water and of the Spirit as instructed by Jesus Christ in John chapter 3:1-7. When we are born again we gain eternal life through Jesus Christ and are set free from the bondage of sin and death as stated in Romans chapter 8:1-4. You will not be held accountable for this sin and tragedy. But you must not only repent of your sins you must be born again. This is how we are to be born again of water and of the Spirit as Jesus instructed us: “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” (Acts 2:38-39) If you have not partook of this then you are not yet saved from your sins and need to apply this in your life immediately as your time is always with you. “Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.” (John 7:6)
13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
4 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
IT IS THE LORD THAT FORMS A CHILD IN THE WOMB AND LIFE TAKES PLACE IMMEDIATELY UPON CONCEPTION. THE PROPHET JEREMIAH WAS SANCTIFIED BEFORE HE CAME FORTH OUT OF HIS MOTHER’S WOMB!! STOP SHEDDING INNOCENT BLOOD!! STOP MURDERING YOUR CHILD OR CHILDREN IN THE WOMB OR OTHERWISE!! CHILDREN ARE AN HERITAGE OF THE LORD: AND THE FRUIT OF THE WOMB IS HIS REWARD!!
JOHN THE BAPTIST WAS FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, EVEN FROM HIS MOTHER’S WOMB!!
15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb.
29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
