Do you FEAR GOD?
5:22 (NIV) "Should you not fear me?" declares the Lord. "Should
you not tremble in my presence? · In Hebrew, yirah (Jon
1:16, Ps 90:11), yare (above, Mal 3:16) and pachad (Job
3:25a, Ps 119:120) mean reverent fear, terror, or dread, normally translated
simply fear. There are other words in Hebrew for mere respect, reverence, or
honor, such as kabad (Ex 20:12). In Greek fear/terror is phobo (Mat
28:4,1 Pet 2:17c), where reverence or honor is timao (1 Pet
2:17a/d). · With this distinction in
both Hebrew and Greek, some still assert that "fear merely means
reverence." As if God through His Spirit could not select the right word
hundreds of times! Some would prefer to believe this than to understand that
God really ought to be feared. · Why is it we will not
accept the fear of God? Why do we try to "explain away" the fear of
God in Scripture? What is it in our unconscious minds that creeps up when the
Spirit leads us into the revelation of the fear of God?
If not you need to repent and get it right before it's to late!!!
