OVERCOMING FEAR

Please be careful and prayerful out there.In these days of unrest and uncertainty we need to remember to pray and ask for the Lords protection, especially when we go into public places or gatherings where large amounts of people are gathered.”The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.” (Psalm 34:7). Here are some other good verses to claim for Gods protection.”HE that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”(Psalm 91:1-11).Jesus said; yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will  think that he doeth God’s service.”(John 16:2).This prophecy is certainly being fulfilled today.There are many lost souls deceived by the devil, who think they are going to be given 70 virgins if they blow themselves, and others up, and it is hard to comprehend such thinking.They have been taught this horrible stuff since they were small children.That shows you how important it is to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” ( Proverbs 22:6).Claim the blood of Jesus over yourselves when you go out there.Of course it is better if you have to go,to go preaching the Gospel, and witnessing. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”(Psalm 116:15).He that touches you puts his finger in the apple of God’s eye.( Zechariah 2:8).Remember the Bible says”But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse,deceiving,and being deceived.”(II Timothy 3:13).So the sooner things get worse lift up your heads,because your redemption draweth neigh,Jesus is coming back to straighten this world out. “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.”( Luke 21: 25,26). Jesus said,”LET NOT your heart be troubled:”(John 14:1a).” Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.”(Proverbs 3:25).”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power,and of love,and of a sound mind.”( II Timothy 1:7).” THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE; BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTETH OUT FEAR: BECAUSE FEAR HATH TORMENT.HE THAT FEARETH IS NOT MADE PERFECT IN LOVE.”( I John 4:18) A good healthy fear of the Lord is a good thing to have. Jesus said “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”(Matthew 19:28). “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;”(Psalm 11:10a)  If you love the Lord and are close to him you have no need to fear only respect, but do fear straying away from the Lord. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” (Hebrews 10:31). I am glad I have God’s Word to cling to and to help me through today and the future. The future is as bright as the promises of God. I feel sorry for those who don’t have Jesus in their lives and pray for them. They are really missing out on the love and joy and peace he freely gives. God, and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit will not force themselves on anyone. Jesus said “whosoever will let him take of the water of life freely.” (Revelation 22:17).

Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
