THE REBUKE-1

THE REBUKE-1
Luke 24:25 “Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:” 
 
The first thing Jesus said to them was a rebuke. They were walking in error, and he needed to reprimand them and bring them back to the correct pathway. 
 
There is no way you walk with the Lord that he will not rebuke you from time to time. Hear this:
 
Proverbs 3:11 “My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction.” 
 
If you have walked with God and the Holy Spirit does not rebuke you from time to time, you need to go back and check if you are still in faith. It could even be that you have stopped hearing or heeding his warnings, so you need to consider your ways. Solomon continued:
 
Proverbs 3:12 “For whom the LORD loveth, he correcteth; even as a father, the son in whom he delighteth.”
 
The ones God reproves are simply the ones He loves. He put the principle of correction and rebuke in place to quickly fix errors in our lives and bring us back to the place of prayer and destiny. 
 
So how does God rebuke us?
 
One way He does it is by speaking to us directly via His Spirit, which is already within us. 
 
John 16:8 “And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:”
 
Genesis 6:3 “And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh; yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”
 
When the Holy Spirit pricks your heart, you should be sensitive enough to pick up the signal. That gentle nudge you feel on the inside, especially when you sin or make a mistake, is the voice of the Spirit trying to bring us back in line. You may not see Jesus the way Cleopas saw him, but His Spirit in us sure does the same work.
 
Here is another way in which God rebukes us:
