Fear Of God....Or is it Fear of Man?

For God Has Not Given Us A Spirit Of Fear.....
Is It Fear Of Man .....Or Fear Of God?
or Fear of God? We cannot ever begin to truly embrace the fear of the Lord, until we have truly abandoned our fear of man. God gave me this message a few days ago and it is so true. How could we possibly believe that we have put God first in our lif...e…if he is not truly first in our life? We tend to see this world through the eyes of this world, the way it’s always been the way it’s always been portrayed, but we are not from this world anymore once we have been born again. The Bible calls us aliens. God says that we actually become a new creature in Christ. That doesn’t mean that we have to run around wearing Star Trek costumes or anything radical like that. But what it does mean is that we live in truth, we walk in truth. We cannot deceive ourselves and be a part of mocking God, He is hip to what’s going on in this world and in our own hearts always. God knows exactly how often we are in tune to Him and what every single one of our thoughts are about. We need to spend a little more quality time with our God, with the intent to get real with Him and ask what exactly kind of things does He want our mind to ponder and what does He want our life to look like…This is of course if we want to please God. The Bible is an amazing thing because it is the word of God, that actually became flesh and walked among us. I don’t know about you, but I could read that sentence three or more times and still long for a revelation for more clarity. It is challenging to understand but then, He is God. And as much as we want to know the answers for everything, I know we’re not always going to get everything there is to know in the Spiritual Kingdom. at least not while we are still living here on earth. I do know that the word of God is food for our spiritual man to grow stronger and more enlightened spiritually. The Bible says that we do not live by bread alone but by every word that cometh out of the mouth of God. The man of flesh eats food to live, but the spiritual man eats, well, he eats spiritual food, every word that comes out of the mouth of God, that is the food that Christ talked about when his disciples were worried about him. They talked among themselves if Jesus had eaten yet or not, and Jesus told them that He had food of which they knew not. Now we know. It is the word of God, which is also written on the pages of the Holy Bible. If we want to remain immature and infant-like in our spiritual life, we may just read the word of God, which is like milk to a baby Christian and we will learn, but If we want to be strong and mature in our Spiritual reality with Christ Jesus, we must have more than milk, we must have meat. What is the meat? That is when you do not just “read” the word but begin to “walk” in the word….that is the meat. Jesus said “walk in my way and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free”….just “knowing” is not enough. Just having faith that Jesus “is” is not enough, for even the demons believe, and they tremble. No, We either run to Christ for a real experience with Him, or we do not. But I do know this thing for sure, God has been telling me for several days now, we will never know the true fear of God until we can abandon our fear of man. And I do know that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. What does that mean? To me, the fear of God is deep reverence, I didn’t always have that. The fear of God is the reality that He is real and all that He says is real. The fear of God is that when I wander off, (as I belong to Him)…it may cause me great pain and difficulty as He rounds me up….like a shepherd finding the lost sheep caught in the thicket bush, or worse, pried from the teeth of a hungry wild animal. I remember the painful things that have happened to me when I wander off in my own way instead of The light of God’s way. I don’t ever want to wander off again. That is the fear of God http://lulu.com/product/paperback/its-a-god-thing-my-sheep-will-hear-my-voice-2nd-edition/14456456 See More
