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.
