About this blog:

This site was not developed with the intention of drawing a large number of visitors using trivial methods and shallowness. There is rejoicing among the angels when even one sinner repents and believes in Jesus Christ. (Luke 15:10) If, for as long as this site exists, just one sinner is led to repentance and belief in Christ with the aid of the material presented here, the purpose of this site has been served.

      Walk in the Terror of the Lord.

      Saturday, October 13, 2007


      "Then had the churches rest throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the phobos (
      1) fear, dread, terror
      1a) that which strikes terror
      2) reverence for one’s husband [Thayer G5401])
      of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, were multiplied."

      (Acts 9:31)


      Giving thanks always for all things unto God, even the Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the phobos [G5401] of God.

      (Eph 5:20-21)


      Therefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly eulabeia (
      1) caution, circumspection, discretion
      1a) avoidance
      1b) a reasonable shunning
      2) reverence, veneration
      2a) reverence toward God, godly fear, piety
      3) fear anxiety, dread [Thayer G2124])
      : For our God is a consuming fire.

      (Heb 12:28-29)


      Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Phobeō God. (
      1) to put to flight by terrifying (to scare away)
      1a) to put to flight, to flee
      1b) to fear, be afraid
      1b1) to be struck with fear, to be seized with alarm
      1b1a) of those startled by strange sights or occurrences
      1b1b) of those struck with amazement
      1b2) to fear, be afraid of one
      1b3) to fear (i.e. hesitate) to do something (for fear of harm)
      1c) to reverence, venerate, to treat with deference or reverential obedience [Thayer G5399])
      Honor the king.

      (1Pe 2:17)


      Saying with a loud voice, Phobeō (G5399) God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment has come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

      (Rev 14:7)



      Compare those definitions with this: For God has not given us the spirit of fear (the greek word is deilia meaning timidity, fearfulness, cowardice [G1167]); but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

      (2Ti 1:7)

      The fear spoken of in the previous verses before this last one speak of a different kind of fear. It's very important to distinguish the difference between the two.

      Again, this is not a message stressed by a generation of "pastors" that do not walk in the terror of the Lord. A person does not need to have an extremely high IQ to realize that if Johnny doesn't brush his teeth himself, he isn't going to be overly concerned with making sure others do as well.
