Fear; fearful; fearfulness and the list goes on. The enemy, the rulers of this world uses fear mongering or fear based tactics with repetition with the objective to force a desired outcome (Ephesians 6:12). “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil” (Romans 13:3). However, we are not deceived because we have come to knowledge of the truth.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth forever” (Psalm 111:10).
“Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God” (Isaiah 50:10).
