F e a r  Q u e s t i o n s

-If we are not to be afraid.(Revelation 21:8).why are we instructed to fear God? Is this another kind of fear?

Fearing God has to do with reverence or respect for just how incredibly great, powerful and in control of all that God is:.Ephesians 5:21.

The Infinite tells is in Matthew 10:31 not to fear, as He is in charge of looking after us. There is no fear when we realize that the real us is beyond time bound experience.

One cannot be aware of any spiritual activity in his life when acting from the ego level. He may at times get flashes of inspiration, quiet still promptings from the soul when the ego is quiescent.

 
The word fear, used throughout the Old Testament, meant worship of God and the awareness of God's activity in one's life; example: This 'fear' gave them courage:.1Samuel 11:7; 2Chronicles 14:14.

The awareness of God all in all brings peace: 2Chronicles 17:10; 2Chronicles 19:9; Psalms 34:11; 111:10; Proverbs 1:7; many other places too.

As powerful as He is, His love predominates, thankfully!.1John 4:8,16

He gave us the gift of righteousness made possible by the sacrifice of His Son, Emmanuel the Christ.(God who became physical), so that we too could have an ongoing relationship with Him and have no fear of retribution and guilt for faults that cause us to still miss the mark.(sin):.1John 1:8; 2:1

Because of what Christ did, sins can not be held against us. Because of this, no fear should exist in you, only joy:.1Peter 1:8 "Whom having not seen, you love; in whom, though now you see him not, yet believing, you rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.".Christ did incredible things for us, all in accordance with the Father's will and love toward us.

-How are we to fear God so our prayers will be answered? Hebrews 5:7

The word 'fear' here, means 'to receive', 'to take well hold of '. Emmanuel accepted.(received, took well hold of, believed).the Father was pleased with Him. There were no miracles done by Emmanuel until after the time of this scripture.

-If Emmanuel strong crying was heard by God, why didn't it do any good? Hebrews 5:7

As the verse says, God heard Him, and was able to save Him, but didn't. Why?

-Job 3:25 When I read this, I am fearful of fearing!

This was Job's observation of his life. It is not a spiritual law. 
   If we all would have experienced the fears we had as kids, we wouldn't have made it to adulthood. None of the bad people I imagined that were under my bed have ever been realized.
