Failure to Fear the Lord

Job had heard God and had absolutely no answer to God’s queries. None. Job was left realizing how utterly vile he was and had no ground to ask or demand from God any answer to any question. This was Job’s start of true wisdom because he had finally come to a point of understanding what it meant to truly fear God.

Fearing the Lord Wrongly

Instead, as we read in Exodus 20, the people were actually afraid enough of God that they went to Moses and said, “You speak with us, and we will hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die.” (v 19). It was good that their fear heightened their senses and made them think about God. The problem is that they feared God wrongly. While they were cognizant of their sin and depravity compared to God (a good thing), they failed to comprehend His love for them as seen in His willingness to meet with them and teach them.

Simple Way to Understand Fear of the Lord

The goal of every Christian – I believe – should be to have such a desire to never OFFEND God that this desire produces within us the necessary ability to not offend Him. It simply makes more sense to me to understand the fear of the Lord in terms of desiring not to offend God rather than simply the more general “fear of the LORD.”

Fearing the Lord

Would that our first parents had opted instead to simply obey God and depart from evil. This they chose not to do. But God is not mocked. Sin will run its course, to one day never again cast a shadow upon the new heavens and the new earth and the glorified people that God places within it. Glory to God in the highest. Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus. Amen.

Antidote for Fear

America has not been judged yet. It has not been overtaken by any foreign power…yet. That is still to come. Yet, people think God will intervene and spare the USA His judgment. Why would He if He was willing to judge Israel? How is the USA better than Israel? How can this nation escape when we constantly adore those who stand against God’s revealed moral code? In short, we cannot.

No Fear of (Offending) God and False Prophets

The false prophets Jesus mentions are here now. I just came across another person yesterday, named Mike, who at first seemed to be genuine. I listened to his 15-minute video where he made several claims related to CV-19 vax. He said the vax was rolled out initially with about 20% of the people getting the real thing, while 80% received saline. He said over time, this 20% will be increased with successive booster shots until most or all of those who received the saline vax will receive the real thing. Since most who received a saline version experienced no negative symptoms, they will without hesitation go back for all boosters, getting the real thing, ultimately resulting in forms of prion disease (like Mad Cow) over the next 3-5 years. Sounds plausible and a brilliant way to do it, if that’s what they did.

Fear of Impending Death Pushes World Toward Revelation

All this is to say that global society is quickly moving toward the time when all will be in place to allow the final global kingdom of Daniel 2 to come to the fore. There is nothing we can do to stop this from happening and we should not spend our time or energy trying to stop it from happening. God says it will happen just like the previous kingdoms came and went – Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Grecian, and Roman. God has a number of purposes in allowing these kingdoms to come into existence and the entirety of the Bible lays it out.

Discerning the Times: CV-19 and Fear God, Shun Evil

But what is interesting about Job is even though he feared the LORD at the outset, God allowed Satan to put that fear of the LORD to the test. What is fascinating about the whole thing is that Job came out of the entire situation with an even greater fear of the LORD! This should speak to us all as a reminder that we can never fear God enough in this life. There is always another level of fearing the LORD that we must seek to develop. In fact, our fear of the LORD will not be perfected in this life, but only when we receive our glorified bodies and our sin natures are removed.

Whom or What Do You Fear?

Nehemiah moved ahead with the king’s permission in spite of the terrorist threats from his enemies he encountered. In fact, not only did Nehemiah not give into his enemies, but what is interesting is how he stationed some men as guards and soldiers who carried spears and arrows in case of an attack by their enemies. The men who were directly working on the wall had a trowel in one hand and a sword in the other, also prepared to immediately be able to defend themselves in case of attack.

Nehemiah’s Fear-Based Anger

Nehemiah’s first reaction is one of righteous anger and he remonstrated against those Jews who had created such heavy financial burdens for their Jewish brethren. But what he said next is the main reason for his anger.
