If we give reverence to the Lord he will put a hedge of protection all around, and his angels will surround us as well! We will be blessed if we put our trust in him and he will not allow us to suffer need. “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him”.(Psalm 34:7-9).
In the body of Christ we receive an unshakable kingdom and will not be moved by any other doctrine, But that of the Lord Jesus Christ. God has shaken the earth before and in these last days will do the same and we must remain a strong people of God and not waiver in our beliefs. “See that you refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire”.(Hebrews 12:25-29).
The whole course of history would of been changed had the midwives not feared God more than Pharaoh. This shows the hand of God working through those who fear him, for they saved the child Moses who was destined to death at the kings command! “But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive. And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive? And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, because the hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them. Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses. And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive”.(Exodus 1:17-22).
Many are taught only one sided religion that God is Love and yes this is very true, but they fail to teach there is a Judgement in the earth and that we need to fear our maker God. “Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought(nothing) all my council, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord”.(Proverbs 1:24-29).
We are to fear God above man no matter what title people carry if it is outside of the will of God. “Let me not, I pray you, accept any man’s person, neither let me give flattering titles unto man. For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away”.(Job 32:21,22). “But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloak of covetousness; God is witness: Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, not yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ”.(1 Thessalonians 2:4-6).
