Fear of the LORD or Fear of Man: An End Times Choice

What is the FEAR OF THE LORD?

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

The end times are a time of choices: choosing Jesus or the world; choosing the kingdom of heaven over the kingdom of darkness; choosing the Word of God over what men who are exalted by the world, SAY is the Word of God.

One of the most important choices to be made is: “Who will the reader fear: God or man?”

Most modern pew-sitters worship a god who is their buddy. Because they do not worship God Almighty of the Bible, inhabitants of the modern churches cannot reverence or respect a god who is beyond their powers of thought. Such thinking is foreign to them. Which is one reason the concept of “…And by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” [Proverbs 16:6] is foreign to them.

IF the reader fears God, he will lose his fear of man.

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
–Matthew 10:28

However, IF the reader fears man, he will lose his fear of God.

In this case, fear is a zero sum game.

Who will the reader fear? The time for making that choice is now.

Regardless of what the reader currently believes, it is a choice which will have eternal consequences.

IS the reader fearful of man and what man can do?

WILL this be the reader’s end times’ choice?

There’s still time to repent, call on God and enter the kingdom of heaven.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that 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:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“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
