Revelation and Insight for this Generation…

The Fear Of The Lord

As time passes, I’m finding more and more that the church has lost the fear
of the Lord. We as a corporate body no longer honor God as a holy, righteous,
but yet judging and jealous God. Nor do we respect the house of God as being a
place for our Righteous King to visit us as the corporate Body of Christ. We
abuse our rights as Christians by taking advantage of God’s grace and mercy. As
saints, we are to be the righteousness of God but we make a mockery of his
righteousness by abusing ourselves. Those who turn their back to God for self
pleasure are those who say, “I love God,” but in reality love themselves more.
We have got to get to a point of no return in our walk. We have got to get to a
point where we either want all of God or none of God.

One major aspect the fear of the Lord has is its ability to restrain us from
sinning.

 

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…” (Proverbs 9:10,
KJV)

 

Now, this wisdom is not the wisdom from man, but the wisdom of God. The fear
of the Lord causes the Holy Spirit to quicken us to be strong counselors and
Godly decision makers. Scriptures tell us that the Holy Spirit brings all things
back to our remembrance. I believe a lot of people misunderstand this particular
scripture. Jesus wasn’t only talking about us being reminded about things we
need to do daily or asking the Holy Spirit to help us during tests. He was
talking about the Holy Spirit being the one who reminds us and quickens us
concerning His Word. The Word of God is alive and His works should be evident in
our lives. When we walk in the fear of the Lord, His wisdom captivates us and
causes His nature to draw us away from the sinful nature. This is an element
that needs to be embraced by the Church in this hour. The fear of the Lord is
vital when pertaining to our walk and believers embracing the lifestyle of
holiness.

 

“And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let
not God speak with us, lest we die. And Moses said unto the people, Fear not:
for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that
ye sin not.” (Exodus 20:19-20, KJV)

 

Notice from the scriptures that Moses made a distinction between
fearing God and the fear of God. God did not create us so that He could be a
condescending, overloading ruler over powerless, needy people. He gave us
authority, and by embracing the fear of the Lord we gain access to that
authority. The fear of the Lord does not make us afraid of what God can do to us
if we disobey Him. It makes us fear Him in all of His beauty. Furthermore,
beckoning us to move closer to Him and abandoning anything that gets in the way.
With this understanding, I believe the church will be in a better, healthier
state. When we understand and walk in the fear of the Lord God is more available
to us to move in His strength.
