"Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul, rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10.26
Don't be frightened, terrified or bulllied by man. Even is someone is threatening or murderous still don't be frightened. The worst these people can do to me is kill me. Then what? My soul, would go to heaven and I would instantly be living in eternal life with God. Those fear mongers can do me no more harm.
Also never stand in awe of man. Don't turn them into idols or demi-gods. They don't deserve it.
God on the other hand is awesome. I have a love-fear of Him. In other words I stand in awe of Him in a loving way. I am never frightened of God. He never threatens or terrifies me. He only does me good. Only God decides who goes to hell once a person dies so He is much greater than man and Satan.
Remember man and Satan are not in control of our lives on earth because we serve God. God is control and He overrules man and Satan on our behalf and sometimes with us. Get the imagination and thought under Gods control and keep leaning on Him.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
