Chapter 4 THE GOOD OF FEAR

In fear is hidden the salvation of the LORD. In fear is hidden the forgiveness of sin. In fear is hidden immortality. In fear is hidden eternal life. In fear is hidden the why of death, the how of death, the purpose of death, the escape from death, and the resurrection from death. In fear is hidden, righteousness. In fear is hidden, strength. In fear is hidden, wisdom. In fear is hidden, knowledge. In fear is hidden, truth. In fear is hidden, power. In fear is hidden, life. In fear is hidden, hope. In fear is hidden, deliverance. In fear is hidden, compassion. In fear is hidden, mercy. In fear is hidden, comfort. In fear is hidden, solace. In fear is hidden, peace. In fear is hidden, direction. In fear is hidden, glory. In fear is hidden, trust. In fear is hidden, health. In fear is hidden, faith. In fear is hidden, GOD. For He said, Fear not, for I am always with thee, even unto the ending of the world. And David cried . . .Psa. 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. And Job cried . . . .Job 13:15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.

It would do well for us to understand GOD who created heaven and earth, and it would do well for us to understand His dread, His terror, His power, His glory, His love, His mind, His righteousness, His authority, His omnipotence, and His wrath. He will bless righteousness, and He will curse iniquity. He will bless the obedient, and He will curse the disobedient. He will love the righteous, and He will despise the wicked. He will honour those who honour Him, and He will dishonour those who dishonour Him. He will receive those who receive Him, and He will reject those who reject Him. He will bless those who bless Him, and He will curse those who curse Him. He will slay those who slay Him, and He will give life to those who give Him life. He will love those who love Him, and He will hate those who hate Him.

Now, right about here we need to go into the Word, the scriptures, and look at Jesus Christ, and look at what the scriptures say about not the man, but the Spirit of the man, the soul and the heart and the mind of this man, Christ Jesus. Isa. 11:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD; 3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Jesus had the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD, . . . .The knowledge of the LORD brings the fear of the LORD. A fool has no knowledge of the LORD. And this knowledge of the LORD shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: . . . . .Here we read of two separate and distinct different fears of the LORD GOD, the first being the fear of death, that fear and knowledge and understanding that GOD alone is the giver of life. In Hebrews it is written of Jesus Christ . . . .the man. . . . Heb. 5:7 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; 8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.

The second fear, is that fear of judging, that fear that will not falsely judge, that fear that will not falsely accuse, that fear that will not nor can create a lie, that fear that cannot judge without light, without truth, without knowledge, and without understanding. Men do not fear bearing a false witness, do not fear a lie, do not fear making a lie, or believing a lie, or causing others to follow after and believe lies. Men do not fear GOD to judge falsely, do not fear God to accuse unjustly, either in the flesh carnally regarding any and all the affairs of men, or to misunderstand or judge falsely the scriptures, teaching for doctrines the assumptions and beliefs of men for the truth. They do not fear lies, do not fear becoming the son of the father of lies, the devil, and they do not fear the wrath of the Almighty upon their judgments of men, nor on their beliefs or faiths or understandings or misunderstandings of the scriptures. Never is Jesus so concerned for us as when we are placed in the position of judging a brother, and He is in the midst of the judgment, and the Word and the Spirit are present.

For Jesus said concerning judgments. Matt. 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican. 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

These words of Jesus were pertaining to judgment, to binding in heaven a judgment or loosing in heaven a judgment, seeing as the witnesses gathered with the Spirit, with the Word, and where the Spirit and the Word abide, the Lord Jesus Christ abides, and establishes every Word in heaven that was spoken on earth, whether the fault was bound or released, judged or forgiven. Therefore are we admonished by the scriptures to not be angry without a cause, and that any unjust judgment or anger will bring upon us a judgment that we could be in danger of hell-fire and damnation ourselves, it being a lie, being unjust, being untrue, and being not done in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and by and through the Word and the Spirit. We are also admonished in the scriptures to not be a partaker of another man’s sin. 1st Tim. 5:19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses. 20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. 21 I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. 22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.

There is no fear of God in the heart of a fool, and therefore, all fools perish without an awareness of their destiny, for to them, even hell is foolishness and just a big joke that God supposedly has played on man.

Chapter 7 WHY FEAR GOD?

In studying the scriptures, beginning with Genesis, one cannot but be filled with fear at the judgment upon Adam and Eve for disobedience to God’s Word, they having only one commandment, they having disobeyed only one commandment, and death passed upon them by that single disobedience, as well as unto all flesh born. And in the book of Revelation, one cannot but be filled with terrors that far surpass the simplicity of fear, when coming face to face with the horrors and judgments of the ending of the world.

WINDS OF WRATH
Words & Music By Martha ©

We can see the sky and know
A storm is on its way
We can feel the wind and know
The rains are going to fall
We can see the lightning
And its thunder shakes the sky
How is it that we do not hear the sounds?

Of the winds of wrath blowing in the distance?
Of the winds of wrath touching down here and there?
Of the winds of wrath building power
Like the world has never seen!

The angels are prepared to sound
The trumpet of the ages
Hold back the winds till we
Have sealed the servants of the LORD
Then let loose the winds of wrath
Against ungodly men and liars
Against the wicked haters of the LORD

We can see a woman will bear
The child within her womb
We can see she can’t escape
Her day of woe
Why can’t men see the earth
Cannot escape the wrath of GOD?
Why can’t they hear
The winds blow?

The winds of wrath blowing in the distance?
The winds of wrath touching down here and there?
The winds of wrath building power
Like the world has never seen!
Hear the wind blow! Hear the wind blow!

And like as was with all the generations of Israel, slaying the prophets, cursing the prophets, rejecting the prophets, is the ending generation of the Gentile church. For as from the beginning of time, the hearts of flesh are deceitfully wicked, devising mischiefs with the left hand and praising God with the right, devising deceits with the left hand and tithing with the right, devising lusts with the left hand and enlargements with the right, devising infidelities with the left hand and offerings with the right, devising greeds with the left hand and works with the right, devising gain with the left hand and songs with the right, devising doctrines with the left hand and rejecting truth with the right, devising prosperities with the left hand and bribes with the right, devising freedom with the left hand and bondage with the right, devising plunderings with the left hand and gifts with the right, devising war with the left hand and peace with the right. Souls are being plundered. Souls are being marketed. Souls are being bought and sold. Souls are being trafficked. Souls are being merchandised. Souls are being deluded. Souls are being used. Souls are being abused. Souls are being smitten. Souls are being thieved. Souls are being bought and sold for a price. Souls are being damned. Souls are being used as steps and then abandoned when a greater one appears. Souls are being stripped of necessities. Souls are being striped. Souls are being captured from faithful servants of Christ to follow after the deluded illusionists. Souls are being mesmerized by spiritual magicians and faithless humourists that do not know how to deliver a sober sermon that souls might fear God and come into the true salvation that saves from damnation. These illusionists fail to minister one basic truth. These cry peace and safety, and do not cry the cry of the faithful prophets, Fear God!

I will tell you what to fear. Fear the grand delusion, the lie sent from God to deceive those who are deceiving the masses in the name of Jesus Christ, those who have fallen in love with the god of mammon, the blind following the blind, and all perishing in the ditch of peace and safety.
