I am a Child of God

Are you? The Holy Bible tells us in 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 KJV Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, [18] And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Do you want perfect love with the Lord, which casteth out fear? Are you living before him without sin – touching not the unclean thing?

Being deaf to the truth is a strong indicator you are on the wrong path. Being unable to do what is right may mean you are not walking in the light. Until you can demonstrably live as a child of God and follow his word, your true father may just be the Devil.

Jesus said in John 8:43-44 KJV Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. [44] Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Therefore pray for understanding and pray for the Holy Ghost and do.

Psalm 111:10 KJV The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments : his praise endureth for ever.

Scared Straight

There seems to be a movement to lessen the meaning and strength of all the times in the Holy Bible when it says we are to fear the Lord.

This movement pins its hope on the definition of fear being reverential awe. These doubters would mislead us and seem to think reverential awe doesn’t actually mean to be afraid of or fearful of God. Let’s look at what Jesus has to say on the subject. In Matthew 10:28 KJV Jesus says, And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

In Philippians 2:12 KJV Paul adds … work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

There is certainly a place for understanding that God is our Heavenly Father and that perfect love casteth out fear. There is also a place for those of us who understand it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of our living God. Hebrews 10:31.
