In Deuteronomy 31:8 and at least 60 other places in His Word, Yahuah, El Shaddai (God Almighty) tells His people to “fear not“. “And Yahuah, He it is that goes before you; He will be with you; He will not fail you, neither forsake you: fear not, neither be dismayed.” Then He says it a different way: “be not afraid” another 25 times. In Matthew 17:7 we are told: “And Yeshua (Jesus) came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7.” Yeshua said “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19. The serpents, scorpions and power of the enemy is the spirit of fear which is of Satan and his demonic forces, and the means by which he controls people who are not walking in the Spirit of YHWH. He is doing this right now worldwide with CV. Look around you, and if that doesn’t convince you, watch the video below. Conversely, the Spirit of Holiness (Ruach HaKodesh) that is freely given by Yahuah, our Abba Father, to us who are His through His Son, conveys to His children the fruit of His Spirit which is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. (Galatians 5:22). Conversely, those walking in the flesh after Satan exhibit the obvious acts of the flesh: “sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry and sorcery; hatred, discord, jealousy, and rage; rivalries, divisions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:19-21. These are they who should be very afraid of what is coming.
The “fear not” and “be not afraid” words of comfort and assurance from the Creator of all and His only begotten Son, Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah), are directed to His people, the children of Israel and His adopted children through His Son, the seed of Abraham and the children of promise, the olive tree and the grafted in branches, the church, the body of Messiah, the bride of Christ. These are those who walk in the Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) of Yahweh and fear not, as long as they remain focused on Him and believe on and obey His Word (“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth). Psalm 119:160 “The entirety of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.”
BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID
If you are not in Christ, redeemed by the blood of Yeshua HaMashiach. If you are not filled with the Ruach HaKodesh and known by the fruit of that Spirit. If you are not evidencing your faith by walking in obedience to His Torah, dwelling in the Secret Place of the Most High and thereby receiving His protection and blessings, as promised in Psalm 91, Deuteronomy 28 and elsewhere in His Word. However, you do not need to be afraid — turn, repent to the Father in the name of His Son and be saved. It is not too late.
FEAR NOT AND BE NOT AFRAID
If you are walking in His Way. He will guide you and protect you. Isaiah 35:8 “And there will be a highway called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not travel it, only those who walk in that Way–and fools will not stray onto it.” Isaiah 30:21 “And when ye turn to the right hand or when ye turn to the left, thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it.”
Have faith in Him, He will guide us through this to the time of His Appearing.
