IMO, you’d better start honing those FEAR skills and learn how to perfect them! Looks like they're a major part of the Christian arsenal for receiving eternal life. Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather FEAR Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Luke 12:5 “But I will show you whom you should fear: FEAR Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, FEAR Him!” Luke 1:50 “And His mercy is on those who FEAR Him From generation to generation.” Acts 9:31 “And walking in the FEAR of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied.” Romans 11:20-21 “Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but FEAR. For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.” 2 Corinthians 7:1 “Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the FEAR of God.” 2 Corinthians 11:3 “But I FEAR, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” Ephesians 5:21 “… submitting to one another in the FEAR of God.” Philippians 2:12 “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with FEAR and trembling” Hebrews 4:1 “Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us FEAR lest any of you seem to have come short of it.” Hebrews 12:28 “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly FEAR.” 1 Peter 1:13-17 “… rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in FEAR; 1 Peter 2:17 “Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. FEAR God. Honor the king.” 1 Peter 3:1-2 “… husbands … may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by FEAR. Jude 1:12 “These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you WITHOUT FEAR, serving only themselves.” Of course, these verses don't apply to those trusting in OSAS. Praise the Lord. .
