WHOM DO YOU FEAR?

Let us be encouraged by David and his courage in the face of fear. Moreover, Jesus made it possible for our Heavenly Father to send the Holy Spirit to indwell every believer so we can have the same confidence that David did that God will be with us in times of trouble.

​”The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.” Psalms 27:1-3

Though my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will receive me.” Psalms 27:10

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD! Psalms 27:13-14

Two more inspiring Psalms one from David and the other from the Songs of Korah: they fear no evil because they know God is with them in times of trouble.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Psalms 23:4

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah.” Psalms 46:1-3

THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE SAFEST EMOTION IN THIS HOUR

The only thing worth seeing is the move of God on this earth. God saving souls, making disciples is what counts. Where does this happen? Listen to this message from Mario Murillo about the GLORY OF GOD. Only when people repent and empty themselves of self and live for God will they see the GLORY OF GOD. It happens in the places of supreme darkness where people are at the end of themselves. Watch the video, if your a Christian you will be glad you did. If you are not, I hope the fear of God rises up and repentance follows.

WHOM DO YOU FEAR?

Do not fear” is the most common commandment in the Bible; it appears more than any other commandment. God uses this phrase whenever he asks someone to do something scary or something that they are not used to doing. He says, “do not be afraid, fear not, or don’t be afraid.”

Read these amazing passages:

David and Goliath “And David said, “The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.” And Saul said to David, “Go, and the Lord be with you!” 1 Samuel 17:37

And Moses said to the people, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.” Exodus 14:13-14

But the Lord said to Moses, “Do not fear him, for I have given him into your hand, and all his people, and his land. And you shall do to him as you did to Sihon king of the Amorites, who lived at Heshbon.” Numbers 21:34

See, the Lord your God has set the land before you. Go up, take possession, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has told you. Do not fear or be dismayed.’Deuteronomy 1:21

And I said to you, ‘I am the Lord your God; you shall not fear the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell.’ But you have not obeyed my voice.” Judges 6:10

Look what God says to Ruth, “And now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you all that you ask, for all my fellow townsmen know that you are a worthy woman.Ruth 10:29-30

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7

It is only God you should fear:

Is not your fear of God your confidence, and the integrity of your ways your hope?Job 4:6

Practical wisdom for living is the central concern of the book of Proverbs. We are told that the beginning and essence of wisdom is the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 1:7; 9:10).

How did the church grow: “So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied. Acts 9:31

Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God” 2 Corinthians 5:11

And most of the brothers, having become confident in the Lord by my imprisonment, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.Philippians 1:14

Time is short may we be bold to speak the word of the Lord and the Gospel to others without fear.

WHOM SHALL I FEAR?

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalms 27:1

God is our refuge and strength,  a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains are moved into the heart of the seaPsalms 46:1-2

Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! His offspring will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.Psalms 112:1-2

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.Psalm 23:4-5

You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday… because you have made the LORD your dwelling place, the Most High, who is my refuge, no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.Psalms 91:5-6,9-10

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? Psalms 56:3-4

The Word of God is enough, you do not need words from Ron Edwards.

KINGDOM MESSAGE FROM PASTOR JEFF

A short 7 minute message – fear the living God not men.

God’s Kingdom will come and Jesus will rule with a rod of iron during His coming Millennial reign. To fulfil the promises God made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Jesus will rule the nations from Jerusalem for 1000 years exactly as the Bible outlines. Sadly, we also know that most nations are goat nations, they don’t fear the living God. They will persecute God’s people during the time leading up to The Day of the Lord when Jesus takes His saints to heaven and pours out His wrath upon the unrepentant still on earth. When the seals have been removed and The Scroll is opened, The Wrath of God is released on the earth with the trumpet and bowl judgements. Fear the living God not men, wise advice.
