“Let him be Your Fear” [podcast]

Is Loving God Enough? (below)

There should be NO fear of mere sinful men among the righteous!!!! “The righteous are bold as a lion!” (Proverbs 28:1) The righteous of the LORD fear God and therefore fear NO mere man or men!!!!!

“And walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.” Acts 9:31

Like we see here with the earliest followers of Jesus, when we truly walk “in the fear of the LORD,” we shall also walk “in the comfort of the Holy Ghost.”

Those who fear the LORD, obey the LORD and they enjoy His comfort. All who do not truly fear the LORD, are not filled with His holy fear, live in fear, they forfeit His peace, His comfort.

Oh, did you catch the end of Acts 9:31 above? The body of Christ was enduring rampant and severe persecutions at this time. They feared and were comforted in their hearts by our LORD. God then gave them “rest round about” from their enemies (Joshua 21:44; 2 Samuel 7:1; 2 Chronicles 15:15; 20:30). When God’s people walk in His fear, when they truly fear Him, they live in His comfort, no matter what is transpiring, and they are “multiplied.” That’s biblical “church growth” which the LORD alone can do, in adding to His church (Acts 2:47). Mere men don’t build Jesus’ church. Only Jesus can do that and He said, He promised “I will build my church.” (Matthew 16:18) Only Jesus died for and only Jesus can add to His church. And He does such in ways unknown to most who claim to follow Jesus today. In Acts, when we read that  “the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” it’s never associated with the modern church scam tactics we see today with wolves who entice people to come have their ears tickled at their Sunday morning church club.

Want to walk with a deep and commanding confidence? Memorize and walk in this one:

“In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.” Proverbs 14:26 

WHERE do we find not just “confidence” but rather “STRONG confidence”?

Anyone who desires absolute boldness in Christ, a deep “confidence” emanating out of a heart that is truly abiding in Christ, pray for it now (Proverbs 14:26). Just ask God as you submit your life to the nail scarred risen Savior afresh! “ASK, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” (John 16:24) Ask Him to unite your heart to fear His name (Psalms 86:11).

Examples of Divine Judgment which are Designed to Instill the Healthy Fear of God in Us!

Studying the judgments of God – past, present, and future – will quickly instill in us a holy fear of the LORD which is clean!!!!

Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.” 1 Corinthians 10:6 

Read that verse of holy truth above once again beloved of God. WHY are these judgment written? What’s the divine “intent” or purpose?

In the New Testament canon, our LORD lists some of the judgments He allowed to fall upon His own people for their rebellion (1 Corinthians 10:1-12; Jude 1, Romans 11:19-22, etc.).

Choosing the Fear of the LORD

“God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.” Psalms 55:19 

Those who refuse to “choose the fear of the LORD” have no changes in their lives.

“For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD:” Proverbs 1:29

True men of God are known in that they preach in the fear of the LORD to please the LORD, not men (Galatians 1:10). The true remnant people of God fear, obey, and say what GOD says. They cater to the LORD, not sinful men (Galatians 1:10). Those who are run off by the pure truth of God’s Word were unrepentant counterfeits.

When a man fears the LORD, he will fear no man. Memorize Galatians 1:10.

It is GOD Himself who puts His fear in our hearts. Read these verses below closely and pray that the LORD will instill His fear deep in your being.

Jeremiah 32:39-40
And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: 
40 And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I WILL PUT MY FEAR IN THEIR HEARTS, that they shall not depart from me

The only way to have a clean heart is to fear God, which Jesus commands all to do.

“The fear of the LORD is clean…” Psalms 19:9

“And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.” Luke 12:4-5 

WE must preach law, judgment, the cross, sin, and hell and STOP apologizing for it. Repent and God will grant you a spine and cause you to cease being a self-serving moral coward.

GOD sure is love, kind, merciful, powerful, awesome…. and “Holy, holy, holy” and will irrevocably damn the soul of EVERY person who dies in sin (Ezekiel 33:12-13; Romans 6:23, etc.). Soul Damning Sins [book]

MANY fear mere sinful men and have men above God. Repent. God is calling you to truly repent and when you do, you will cease attempting to justify and bid Godspeed to the enemies of Christ and say with Paul: “Let GOD be true and EVERY man a liar.” (Romans 3:4; 2 John 10-11)

“having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.” Jude 16

“For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.” John 12:43

“for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10

Those who do not truly fear the LORD and therefore fear men are in need of true repentance.

May God instill in the depth of our being His holy fear – that we might love and know and seek our LORD all the days of our lives.

Read Psalm 1 and 92.

Crisis Management Mode vs Perpetually Dwelling in His Word

Perpetual Blessings require perpetual fellowship…..

“Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.” 1 Chronicles 16:11

Continually seeking the LORD guarantees that you remain full of His strength, His joy, His divine peace.

Running to the LORD continually is essential. Instead of praying and the reading of God’s Word being simply a crisis management reaction, why not make it our meat, our lifestyle – that which we do daily, diligently, and fervently?

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” Proverbs 18:10

If you are going to established in divine peace, if you are going to be “safe”, you must run to and remain grounded at the feet of Christ!

Get filled, stay full, keep your lamp overflowing (Matthew 25:1-13).

ALL who truly fear God are instilling the fear of the LORD in others. The reason that lame hireling you sit under isn’t invoking the fear of God in you is because he has no fear of God himself but is rather building his own castle in the sand at your expense.

Unity among true disciples of Jesus is on the basis of His Word of truth, never at the expense of it (Psalms 11:3; Matthew 7:24-29).

“Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” Matthew 10:34
