There is fear of man, animals, war, people say they
fear God but on the other hand they are fearing man. Today people
world-wide fear the so-called pastors, priests, bishops and many men in
man-made posts; they think that when they fear these people they fear
God. But this is not what the Bible teaches; it tells us to fear,
worship and give glory to God (Rev 14:7).
How, then, should we worship the Lord? Men may
stagger from sea to sea and wander from north to south searching for
the word of God but they will not find it. (Amos 8:12) According to
this chapter, it is the duty of people who fear the Lord to search His
word before this time comes.
Fearing the Lord is not just reading the Bible like
any other book, but putting into practice what the Bible wants us to
do. Let us continue fearing God by searching His word, because we are
not of those who shrink back and are destroyed (Hebrews 10:39).
As we know, the fear of God is the beginning of
wisdom. Let us then be a good example to the world. We should be like
lamps put on a mountain for everyone to see, not hidden in a basket,
and like the salt of the earth. So, brothers and sisters world-wide,
tell people about your fear of God for them to be with us in the
Kingdom. The one King, our lovely Lord Jesus Christ is coming soon.
