Any fears other The Fear of The LORD are not coming from GOD. GOD and Satan have their own: kingdom, servants, doctrine, power and ways; but the difference is that they are opposite to each other. GOD IS HOLY and Satan is unholy.
Many individuals fear death, just as I did at one time (and that was because I didnít have The SPIRIT of GOD and therefore I couldnít live rightly before GOD), now that I have been saved by CHRISTíS PRESENCE (HIS HOLY SPIRIT), Iím no longer afraid of death (simply because I know that Iíll never experience what death feels like, 1 Corinthians 15:50-58).
Fear (which is sin) makes cowards of men. This is what prevents a person from defending the rights of others as well as themselves, even when theyíre being wronged. It explains why so many human beings fall into the traps of: fearing the displeasure and the opposition of oneís peers (Galatians 2:12), others seeking to harm them (John 9:22 & John 20:19), the loss of position and livelihood (John 12:42 & 19:38), to stand up for CHRIST (defend the GOSPEL, Matthew 26:56 & Luke 23:50-56); to witness without being ashamed or embarrassed (2Timothy 1:7-8), fearing men more than they do GOD (John 19:13-15); persecution (2 Timothy 1:6-12; 1 Peter 4:12-13) and varies others. The only fear one should and must have IS The Fear of The LORD and it can be only be obtained by HOLY SPIRIT.
THE OPPISITE of fear IS TRUST
Trusting GOD brings TRUTH, HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, Unmistakable Satisfaction which Triumphs over all ! Fear causes you to compromise, deny CHRIST, disbelieve, etc., which lure (deceive) you into bondage. A lot of people have been tricked into thinking that GOD expects you to do something (whatever HIS WORDS SAYS to do) without HIS HELP, thatís where youíre wrong. GOD will never expect us to do anything without HIM. SALVATION MEANS: DELIVERANCE, UNCONDICIONAL LOVE, GODLY WISDOM, PROSPERSITY, HEALING AND THE POWER TO MAKE WHATEVER YOU NEED TO HAPPEN !
The Death of JESUS CHRIST is for all who believe, HE died so we all can live with HIM in Heaven and be saved (1 Timothy 2:4) from the evil forces of Satan (a fallen angel of whom rebelled against GOD and now chooses to hurt GOD by tricking others to violating GODSí DECREES with him). I remember when I was out in the world (unsaved) and wondered why GOD allowed some things to happen that I didnít think was fair, as well as being afraid of GOD rejecting me because of my sinful lifestyle, and also thought that HE didnít love me; but that wasnít true. The Truth of the matter was GOD Couldnít GIVE me what I wasnít willing to receive. Now Iím a changed individual because of HIM and by The POWER of HIM, Iím going to snatch every willing body from the fire of hell, so they can enjoy their new identity in CHRIST.
HEAVENLY FATHER, I do not want to be pull back into fear. The KINGDOM Harvest is near and we must cross the river of hesitation. LORD, grant me YOUR STRENGH to turn these stumbling stones into stepping stones and YOUR GRACE to EMPOWER me to forbear whatís ahead, and grant me YOUR JOY in whatever those things are.
In JESUSí NAME. AMEN.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
