Fearless

One of the ladies on WayFM offered a short sermon during the morning show. She proceeded to tell the listeners that fear of God means respect and awe similar to the way we feel about the Grand Canyon.

I tell you no. Fear means fear.

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

Matthew 10:28 KJV 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.

Fear of the second death helps keep me on the straight and narrow. If you’re a sinner may I suggest fear first, in addition to holding God in respect and awe.

If you truly want to be fearless, love God and keep his Commandments.

1 John 4:18 KJV There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Iniquity

Andrew Wommack was recently preaching that you can live in sin and still go to Heaven. In order to preach this he had to change the definition of death, making it seem something not very serious.

I tell you when it says the wages of sin is death, it means it. It means both spiritual and physical death. The Lord will destroy both spirit and body in Hell. He will ask all workers of iniquity to depart from him. In Matthew 7:23 KJV Jesus said, And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Hebrews 10:26-27 KJV says, For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, [27] But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

On WayFM they preach that it is impossible to live perfectly. Yet, Jesus came to teach us how to walk perfectly before the Lord God Almighty.

Luke 1:37 KJV says, For with God nothing shall be impossible. Jesus will help if you remember to call upon him. Is it possible to live perfectly for 5 minutes, for 5 hours? Why not 5 days or 5 years? With God perfection or following the law with love is possible!

Trophy of Grace

I recently started listening to a Christian radio station called wayfm. A few weeks ago, the DJ gave a short sermon on being a trophy of grace versus being a leader of moral righteousness. He maintained he was not an example of righteousness, but only a trophy of grace.

His error. These aren’t antonyms they are synonyms. To be a trophy of grace, to be saved, you must of necessity be righteous.

What does the Bible say: 1 John 3:6-8 KJV Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him. [7] Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. [8] He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

To be a trophy of grace we must have a part in God. To have that part we must not sin. Not sinning makes us an example of righteousness.

Luke 21:36 KJV
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and stand before the Son of man.
