The Chastening of the Lord

According to the Collins Dictionary the word 'chasten' means - correct by punishment, while the word 'scourge' means - a person causing severe punishment.

Now, why would a loving God inflict severe punishment on those he loves? Why would He allow Satan to inflict such severe punishment on his servant Job, a perfect and an upright man, one that feared God, and eschewed evil (Job 1:8), or His servant David, who was severely tested (Psalm 6:1-10), and the apostle Peter, who was severly tested and sifted as wheat by Satan (Luke 22:31)?

Rather than speaking from personal experience, we believe that the most effective way to be taught and to come to the understanding of 'The Chastening of the Lord' is by the Word of God itself, as the Word is God (John 1:1).  

We have therefore compiled the following references for your perusal, and as always welcome any questions you may have.
