Fear of the LORD: Fear is Fear

What is the FEAR OF THE LORD?
What is the FEAR OF THE LORD?

FEAR OF THE LORD:

What do the churches say?

What does the Bible Say?

The apostate world system (which includes the apostate churches and the satanic “discernment ministries”) have engaged in a make-over of Christianity. One of the areas where this face-lift is most noticeable is the phrase “the fear of God” or “the fear of the LORD.”

The apostates teach that the fear of God is not a real fear.  They spend hours upon hours teaching that it is an “awe” or a “reverence.” And the fear of the Lord DOES include awe and reverence.

But it also includes a healthy dose of FEAR–just exactly as the Bible declares.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge:”
Proverbs 1:7

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”
Proverbs 9:10

“by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.”
Proverbs 16:6


A good example of the “new doctrines” is this answer to the question, “What does it mean to have the fear of God?” found at a popular question-and-answer site.

For the unbeliever, the fear of God is the fear of the judgment of God and eternal death, which is eternal separation from God (Luke 12:5; Hebrews 10:31). For the believer, the fear of God is something much different. The believer’s fear is reverence of God.

This is the new, popular teaching.

It is also wrong.

We can know that it is wrong by consulting the Bible.  Isaiah 2:19 is one example of what the fear of the LORD really is.

“And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”
Isaiah 2:19

Okay, this is the fear of the LORD for unbelievers.

But we can know that the fear of the LORD is referring to a healthy fear FOR BELIEVERS by referring to what Jesus said. Jesus is VERY specific of what fear means.  He refers to “being afraid,” not in awe or reverence.

“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. 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

Luke is very succinct and precise in his account.

So that NONE would misunderstand, Jesus added at the end “yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”

Once more: The fear of the LORD is the fear of the LORD.

Yes, we have reverence and awe and are overwhelmed with the sheer power and majesty of God Almighty.  But in all of that, there will be a real fear of such power and might and supreme holiness.

Anyone who tells the reader differently is attempting to sell something.

And that something is not very pleasant.

The Promises of the World: A New You

PROMISES, PROMISES: The world promises a "New You!"
PROMISES, PROMISES: The world promises a “New You!”

THE PROMISES OF THE WORLD ARE WORTHLESS

While out and about, several signs outside businesses were noticed promising “A Brand New You!” or “A New You!” One of the establishments was an exercise class, another a gym.

A brand new you?  Is that possible?

“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”
Mark 10:27

A “brand new you” IS possible when the person becomes born again.

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
John 3:3

When a person is born again, they become transformed.  They become a new creature in Christ Jesus.

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Romans 12:2

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
2 Corinthians 5:17

“A new creature” means a new nature: one that is attuned to God through His Holy Spirit, who indwells all believers. “A new creature” is absolutely a brand new you.

When the world promises a brand new you, it is like the other promises of the world: the reader cannot trust what the world offers.

But when God Almighty promises a brand new you, then the reader can depend on that promise.

For all eternity.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

THE GOSPEL

“Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
1 Corinthians 15:3-4

MEDIA NARRATIVES ALERT

“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)?  One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article.  When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master.  “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events.  Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do.

Why Brain Scans Are Not Always What They Seem

Ending the Internet Outrage Cycle – A few points: 1- There is PLENTY of faux outrage out there, a great deal of it on the Internet, but plenty that is not. Many specialize in being outraged; and 2- “Outrage” is a familiar way for those who are caught in a lie to conveniently end the conversation and retire with their “dignity” relatively intact.

However, this piece does perpetuate one falsehood: that of the modern escape pod of “humor.”  Anyone these days can say anything outrageous–and, if the public doesn’t cozy up to the trendy outrageousness, then the person can cry and whine and plead “Can’t you take a joke?”    “I was only joking!” “Oh, come on!  Don’t you have a sense of humor?!?”

“So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport? […and saith, I was only joking?]
Proverbs 26:19
