ALIVE WORD: Fear God – Part 2

The Richardsons

“Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.”  1 Samuel 12:24

No matter who you are or where you are, whether you want to admit it or not, God has been good to you.  It is God who allowed us to wake this morning, who gave us the breath of life.  Many did not wake this morning and the reality is that only the mercies of God will allow us to make it through this day.  We should all show God how thankful we are for his goodness and mercies by serving Him in spirit and in truth.  God has promised blessings on those who fear Him.  “He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.”  Psalm 115:13

Some people want to be blessed but they do not want to fear God.  They want to live their lives however they feel, doing whatever they please, even if it is evil and wicked.  However, the devil does not play fair, so at some point he will turn on the wicked and then they wonder why God is allowing them to suffer or be overtaken with troubles.  They forget in the midst of their pain that it is the deeds of their own hands and their words and actions that has caused their troubles.  They do not want to fear God or serve God but they want God to bless them.  God is merciful but we are not to trample on His mercies.  Proverbs 3:7 states “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.”  It is time to fear God.

There are many people today who in the midst of bad situations have told God that if He would get them out of it they would serve Him the rest of their lives.  God heard their cries and delivered them out of their troubles but as soon as they were delivered they soon forget about the promise they made to God.  Are you such a person?  It is time to serve God, it is time to fear God.

Do you fear man and not fear God?  Do you compromise and please man even if it means that you sin against God and His word?  “The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.”  Proverbs 29:25

Our lives are in the hands of God; God who not only made the world but made us.  Many are seeking power, fame, and wealth, filled with hidden agendas and plans of wickedness, having no regard for God and taking no thought for their souls or eternal destiny.  Some are bold enough to say that they can do whatever they want and no one can stop them.  Beware, for maybe man cannot stop you but God surely can.  Man is not the one to be feared, God is.  “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”  St. Matthew 10:28

Today, we want to encourage you not only to fear God but to serve Him.  You can do this by accepting Jesus Christ into your life and having a relationship with Him. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

“Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him.”  Ecclesiastes 8:12

    Watcher, this is my turn to commend you, as you commended me one day last week. I agree with your word of support on behalf of the Richardsons. You did a beautiful job in encouraging the rest of us to take heed of the message the Richardsons are bringing to us, as they receive it from God’s Holy Spirit.

    I join you in prayer to ask God to teach the Richardsons to continue to thrive with obedience, trust, and humility. I pray that the Richardsons will keep in mind that they are not working for God, but He is doing His work through them, that He might reveal His glory of Love by their service to Him.

    O God in Jesus Christ, I ask You to take away all pride and haughtiness that might stand in the way of Your work through these two young people. Dear God, I ask You to reveal or raise up other young people like them and by the power of Your Holy Spirit, silence the foe and the avenger; those who try to intervene, to defame Your work, as Satan control their minds to do so. Continue, dear God, to show Satan that You are all powerful, all Holy, of the Essence Love, the stature of Life, the Light of men in Jesus Christ.

    O God as You put wisdom of You and Your Ways in the minds of the Richardsons, give them the blessing of understanding, and the ability of speech and illustration that will cause them to speak and write this wisdom with clarity. And when this is established, speaks to the minds of fellow Dominicans, that they might leave political issues alone and turn to the articles of Word Alive, where they will learn about Your Love and Life, provoking their desire to become saved, because of the blood of Jesus Christ. In His name I pray.

    Well said. People fear the Lord and do his will. Thank you Fatther for the Richardson couple who has dedicated their life in teaching for your Glory and your honour. I pray that thousands may digest and there be a great rivival in the lands. May thousands be saved and those of us who are saved may household salvation be done for your glory and honour in Jesus your son’s Name.

    People salvation is free. Go for it and the Earth and the Fullness belongs to the Lord. Let us praise him in Spirit and in truth. Let us confess the sins of the nations and ask the merciful Father to have mercy on us. Look what is happenning around us. Our young men especially are dying and the enemy is out to destroy our young people esp males. He is merciful and just to forgive us of our sins and if we turn from our wicked ways, The heavenly Father will bless our lands.
