Fear is not of God,nor from God. So don’t accept it, give it back to the devil,and tell him to go to hell with it.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
(II Timothy 1:7 NKJV).
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’(Isaiah 41:10 NKJV).
Do not be afraid of sudden terror, Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes; For the Lord will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught. For the perverse person is an abomination to the Lord, But His secret counsel is with the upright. The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, But He blesses the home of the just. Surely He scorns the scornful, But gives grace to the humble. The wise shall inherit glory, But shame shall be the legacy of fools.
Proverbs 3:25-26, 32-35 NKJV
Proverbs 9:10 tells us that,
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom…
Amd,Proverbs 1:7 says,The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge…
FEAR: Reverence; an attitude of deep respect filled with awe for the Lord.
+++People in the world has no fear or reverence for God. This means they have no wisdom and their knowledge is corrupted.
+++You cannot make spiritual sense to them, and they definitely make no spiritual sense to you.
The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that does good.
+++Only the Holy Spirit can reveal Christ, spiritual knowledge and wisdom to those in the world. When we preach the gospel of Christ to the world the Holy Spirit used the word preached to enlighten their hearts and reveal the Person of Christ to them.
…be all of you therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
…do not cast your pearls (of wisdom) before swine’s lest they trample them under their feet…
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
