Scripture: 2 Corinthians 5:9-11
The key to the end-time harvest is ‘the fear of the Lord’ first in us and then upon us as an end-time anointing. This anointing has to be birthed by the church and the price is walking in faithfulness and obedience to the Lord with a willingness to grow up in Him in all things. To get comfortable with the fear of the Lord, in particular and fear itself in general we have to study the different manifestations of fear in the New Testament and how Jesus used them to unfold His perfect will! Fear has many uses when birthing God’s end-time plan. Jesus made it very clear to His twelve disciples not to fear those who kill the body, but rather fear Him who after He has killed the body can still destroy both body and soul in hell. This second death would be for eternity by assigning a person to hell forever. For this reason, we must look at all the dimensions of fear and its various aspects in accomplishing God’s purposes. We learned yesterday, it is through the fear of the Lord, we persuade men. Studying fear as it is used in the Bible is very helpful in preparing to use it to awaken others to salvation!
