The Fear of God

Lou Figueroa


·         Is there any aspect of your life that you are reserving the right to make the final determination?

2 Chronicles 7:14 If My people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord [FOG] is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. 

·         True knowledge and wisdom begins with reverential subordination to God.

·         The FOG is the beginning of knowledge. 

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

·         FOG produces godly humility. 

Proverbs 15:33 (NLT) Fear of the Lord teaches wisdom; humility precedes honor.

Proverbs 22:4 (NLT) True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long life.

Isaiah 6:5 “So I (Isaiah) said: “Woe is me, for I am undone!  Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.”

·         Paul on the road to Damascus fell to the ground in response to God’s presence.

Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us?”  And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

·         FOG calls for and instills obedience.

John 14:15 “If you love me, obey my commandments.”

·         FOG develops godly courage. 

Joshua 1:8-9 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it [OBEDIENCE]. Then you will be prosperous and successful. 9Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Proverbs 24:5 The wise prevail through great power, and those who have knowledge muster their strength. 

·         FOG helps us avoid sin. 

Proverbs 16:6 (NLT) Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin.  By fearing the Lord, people avoid evil (sin).

Psalm 103:11-12 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. 

·         Text YES to 321-574-6970 if you have chosen to accept Jesus as you Lord and Savior.
