word 'fear' in the Old
Testament original implies
'the awareness of', 'the awe
presence of', 'respect
for', the reverential.trust
toward, the regard
for, not a terror
type of fear toward
8:12 "...it is good with them that fear God...".Haggai
6:16 "Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you are able
to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked."
Living in the fear of the
true, only God is living on the road toward the good things of the Creator.
The word 'fear' as used in
this regard connotes
a knowing and comprehension of. In other words, to respect the words our
Creator gave to guide us. To trust another, you have to know the other
is worthy of trust. Is the Creator worthy of your trust?
So the word fear means two
main things, that of 'a growing respect for', as one grows
in knowledge of the object deemed
worthy of respect and trust.
The other 'fear' is that
of a 'being afraid'
to a point of being unable to live life confidently.
Action due to being careful
is wise. But, inaction
over something bad happening, is counterproductive
Such actions should be avoided:.Proverbs
10:24 "The fear of the wicked comes upon him..."
Could God make one's life
so that you would have no reason for fear?.Genesis
33:1-11; Exodus 23:27; 2Chronicles
Things we may be afraid of
some degree, contain points of learning for us, such as it also was
with the disciples:.Matthew
14:27-30; 17:5-7; Mark
51:12,13 "I, even I, am he that comforts you.(Psalms
23). Who are you that you should
be afraid of a man that shall die who is made as grass. And.(why
should you be afraid to the point of forgetting God?).forget
Lord your maker that has stretched forth the heavens and laid the foundations
of the Earth and yet you fear continually every day because of the fury
of the oppressor.(you
see the oppressor's power every day, but forget about God's
ability), as if he were ready to
destroy? And where is the fury of the oppressor?
Fear is a decision taking
one away from having God uppermost in heart, It's a decision which weakens,
keeping you away from the joy of God, thus, keeping you weaker:.Nehemiah
8:10 "...the joy of the Lord is your strength."
That's why the devil is all
for creating fear in society. Why allow fear to grip you, when the God
of all light, love and creation can protect you?
Do you believe God?
14:1 "Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also
14:27 "Peace I leave with you, my peace I
give unto you. Not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart
be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
23:4 "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
will fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and your staff they
25:12 "What man is he that fears God? Him shall God teach in the way
that he shall choose."
27:3 "Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear.
Though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident."
147:11 "God takes pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope
in his mercy."
The real true God doesn't
want you fearful of Him. He's your friend, just as He was to ancient Abraham:.James
2:23. The true God only wants good for you, now and ultimately:.John
10:10; 3John 1:2.
The terror type of fear
means you're unable to approach life in confidence
and that's usually because the mind is on some threat.
Some people fear dandruff.
Ha ha! Any fear is only just a problem to figure out.
All fear is lack
faith, that is, people just fail to believe God is all out for their
good and is with each of us every step of the way.(*),
3:13. But we must be alert to the tricks of those influenced by the
11:35; 1Peter 5:7-9. You don't
drive with your eyes closed. God gave you eyes to use. Use what you can
in your life:.Romans
2:19-21; 1Corinthians 7:31.
Should we walk around with
a sense of fear,
a sense of impending.doom,
a sense that all we may have gained may be lost? Trust in God. He runs
show, but God never overrides
you, only leads you, but only you can take the
steps to awakening:.Proverbs
21:1 "The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord. As the rivers of
water he turns it whithersoever he will.".1Samuel
So, there's the fear that
is a respect
for and the fear that is a terror toward, such as one might have meeting
a bear in the woods. This fear is the good fear that prompts you to withdraw
from something that may be hurtful.
Many people walk around with
fear all day.(*).
This can affect the cells of their body, bringing in energy that is disruptive
to proper cell functioning, changing
what would have been a good result into a poisoning one.
Nutritious organic food becomes
not nutritious, poisoned by fear, the fear that is destructive. A bright
sunny and warm day becomes a frustration. And so on. Unhappy cells drag
the body down and dis-ease
can then set in:.Proverbs
15:13 "A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of
the heart the spirit is broken." Proverbs
15:15 "All the days of the afflicted are evil, but he that is of a
merry heart has a continual feast."
17:22 "A merry heart does good like a medicine, but a broken spirit
dries the bones." Ecclesiastes
9:7 "Go your way, eat your bread with joy and drink your wine with
a merry heart, for God now accepts your works."
fear that is the uncomfortable feeling you get at times of extreme cautiousness
and negatives in your life, leads you to be afraid or worried that something
bad is going to happen. It is opposite to courage and trust:.2Timothy
1:7 "For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and
of love and of a sound mind.".Why
you can trust God.
34:4-11 "I sought the Lord and he heard me and delivered me from all
my fears. They looked unto him and were lightened and their faces were
not ashamed. This poor man cried and the Lord heard him and saved him out
of all his troubles. An angel
of the Lord.encamps
round about them that fear him and delivers them. O taste and see that
the Lord is good. Blessed is the man that trusts in him. O fear the Lord,
you his saints, for there is no want.(no
them that fear him. The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but they
that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. Come, you children, hearken
unto me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord."
23:1-4 <A Psalm of David> The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still
waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness
for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Your rod and
your staff they comfort me.
35:3,4 "Strengthen the weak hands and steady the feeble knees. Say
to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not. Behold, your
will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence. He will come and
be so concerned over saving yourself.(why?).
in God and ask Bruno
for help along the way:.Ruth
2:12; 2Samuel 22:2,3; 22:31,32;
5:20; Psalms 7:1,2; 16:1;
6:17. Learn from the examples
of David, Joshua, Moses, Gideon, only a few who trusted in the true
God of all and were never let down.
When you wake up in the
morning, what is in your mind that you care about? What is, shows you what
it is that you are in your heart.
The word fear meant that
Creator-God was uppermost in the mind in all that one thinks and does,
as one's determination was to be aligned with the good things of the Creator.(what
all one does:.Nehemiah
When men and women don't
fear, that is, don't respect, don't care for, don't give attention to God,
they will be the same toward their fellow man. And what
do we have today in the world?
Realize how the Creator now,
era of the
Testament looks at you because of Christ
in you. What
does this religious sounding phrase 'Christ in you' mean?
4:40 "And He said unto them Why are you so fearful? How is it that
you have no faith?" Isaiah
17:13 "The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters, but
God shall rebuke them and they shall flee far off and shall be chased as
the mountains before the wind and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind."
29:5 "Moreover the multitude of your strangers shall be like small
dust and the multitude of the terrible ones.(those
evil upon others),
shall be as chaff that passes away, yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly."
112:7,8 "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings. His heart is fixed,
trusting in the Lord. His heart is established. He shall not be afraid..."
34:4 "I sought the Lord and he heard me and delivered me from all my
fears." Psalms 91:9-16 "Because
you have made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, your habitation,
there shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh thy
dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over you, to keep you in
all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash
your foot against a stone. You shalt tread upon the lion and adder.
The young lion and the dragon shall you trample under feet. Because he
has set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him. I will set him
on high, because he has known my name. He shall call upon me and I will
answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him and honour
him. With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."
We fear that which we are
not sure is good for us, like death,
right? We fear when we harbor a sense of imminent
danger. Fear comes from past memory of pain. That's why to overcome fear
we need to learn to live in the present.
Fear does not come from
God. Whatever would God ever be fearful of? Nothing! This is God we're
talking about. The same God that, once
you, will forever be with you:.Hebrews
13:5 "...for he has said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.".When
with this higher power.(Psalms
39-49), fear is a non issue.
41:10 "Fear you not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed,
for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yea, I will help
you. Yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness."
15:21 "And I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked
and I will redeem you out of the hand of the terrible."
10:24 "The fear of the wicked comes upon him, but the desire of the
righteous shall be granted."
4:18 "There is no fear in love, but perfect love.(the
Creator's love is perfect leaving
out fear, because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in
The word 'fear' as used in
many verses in the Bible refers to awareness of one greatly respected
because of his power and position.(example
3:15), not terror as an intimidation
intended to coerce
and/or restrict another, a type of terror of one may feel that can be harmful.
The occurrence of the word in scripture is to be understood by the particular
within which it occurs. For example in
Adam and Eve's case.
The Creator doesn't want
us to be in terror of Him at all. Compare Revelation
11:18 with 1John 4:18; 2Timothy
1:7; Romans 8:15; Luke
1:17; Acts 9:31.
Creator is our friend,
not one to fear:.James
2:23; Luke 1:74. Our creator is
our friend who became the physical expression of the invisible intelligent
spirit energy we named Emmanuel
the Christ. Creator laid His life down at the physical level for us in
the form of the One called Christ:.John
Our Creator doesn't want
anyone to be afraid of Him:.John
14:27. If you expect things to get better and you will once you believe
what God says about you, then you have the hope that makes not ashamed:.Romans
5:5. You know then that you have been made righteous by faith:.Romans
was called the friend of God. Why?.James
2:23; 2Chronicles 20:7;
41:8. We are also friends of the Creator:.John
15:14,15; Galatians 3:9; Romans
4:3-6. Live in confidence, because God is with
you just as God was with Emmanuel and Abraham so long before in time:.John
A few more 'fear' scriptures:.1Peter
2:12; Ephesians 5:21; 6:5;
7:1,15; Romans 3:18; 11:20;
1:50; 12:5: Psalms
It is important to believe
that our Creator truly does approve of you.(Romans
14:8), that His grace
is upon you. This means that you
too are a creator.
The right fear.(realizing
that the Creator is indeed
the way to get rid of evil:.Proverbs
16:6. Ancient king Benhadad of Syria came to realize this in a life
Most people have not a confident
expectation of good things.(hope),
but of bad things or things getting worse. Paul had a different approach
to his life:.Acts
Fear is generated by ego
level concerns coming from a belief that the
illusion of physicality is the only reality. When attention is taken
up with worry over the future and mental effort is expended salvaging past
negatives one thinks it's important to drag all this crap into the now,
into the present and the mind is left with little room for influence
of the Soul. Such people should start
with AskSuby. The Soul
thrives in the present!
Fear holds you in concern
for the physical, including your body, your security, etc. Fearful concern
over things is the isolation method the ego utilizes
to maintain its control over your emotions,
effectively shutting off the Soul's
guidance to help you walk with faith
Faith and fear cannot coexist.
Fear is a belief in a negative personal future. Faith is believing the
underlying intelligent energy of which all things consist, is only good.
is the struggle of life replaced with the presence of peace:.Zephaniah
If you are worried, that
should alert of the need to focus on thoughts such as 'I've proved
the Creator exists, I know the pivotal
point of history was Emmanuel's death, burial, resurrection and uprising
into heaven, the invisible realm
of the Creator and receiving the position as King over all:.John
18:37. I've proved the Bible
true. I know He is in me.(2Corinthians
I know I have a great opportunity through all these trials and tests in
this Earth experience to gain an eternal great reward.'
The spirit within makes you
safe. Realize all that matters is the present moment and take your place
inside the drama
of life, where potential dangers are illusions because only what lies
at hand is real, only in the present is reality. You will be secure when
you realize the Creator has provided all
you need, but you do need to learn how to use the
free gift for prosperity in all areas of living God has given you to
The Creator inspired these
4:18 "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear, because
fear has torment.(original
'to draw back', 'curb', 'check', 'restrict', 'punishment', 'fear').
He that fears is not made perfect in love.".One
cannot have a relationship with the
Stillness in the silence based on fear, the terror kind of fear. The
relationship needs to be based on faith.
The fears that hold us back
are those we have avoided clearly defining.
Because of this we often are unable to determine that they come from a
sense of separation, that is, believing
that you are not, at your Soul level.(your.particular
connection with the Soul), unified
in peace with everything that is. And of course, this all would seem
or insanity to anyone out of touch with the Soul. For great insights into
this, see the award winning movie:.What
If? The Movie.and
see the sequel
to it, the new.The
of separateness from God, which is the delusion
that leads to confusion:.1Corinthians
We just cannot clearly see
our deep seated fears without taking the time for meditation.
Fears are an alert to us
that something needs fixing:.1John
Forget the content of fear
holding countless images of horrible outcomes, but know that anxieties
are there to let you know that some part of you feels weak, so that you
can do something about it, before it
Anxiety comes from the ego's defense mechanism
producing reactions which separate us from the spirit
power we all have.
accept without being aware of what we have accepted. We live with these
negative things which produce all sorts of sisters - heartaches of all
kinds - illness, resentments, greed, belief in separateness and so on.
And we wonder why life gets worse for us. We are seemingly unaware of the
cause. We are the cause by what has been in our minds.
You see, we can use this power for what is good
for us or use it for bad. It all
depends what we are focusing upon. Most people focus on the negatives
of the past and on worries over their future.
Awareness is an activity of Soul strength , one
of the things
of the Soul, turning bad energy into energy that
manifests good. Once you learn to use awareness for good.(how?).life
changes toward that direction.
Get rid of anxiety by adopting the stance
that all your actions come from your base, the Soul. Let go by deciding
to avoid worrisome thoughts over
outcomes. It is a decision only
you are allowed to make regarding worry over the future or resentments
and grievances of the past. Avoid these as they bind negative
emotions to you depleting your energy.
Avoid them by restricting your mind to maintain
its thinking to the
second right now, enthroning.thankfulness,
one of the qualities of higher consciousness that flows
energy into you. When aligned
with these higher consciousness attributes,
you possess an overshadowing presence for every minute of your day.."Anxiety
is the ego overshadowing and
blocking the spirit, making an individual out of sync
with the non local."....Deepak

The Old Testament didn't provide the power necessary
for a change of heart. The New
Fears are healed by being
the present with your mind, in the now, where your mind should
be to maintain health and saneness.
When you stay strong mentally, your body follows
The present is the only moment

the importance of meditation.
Fears are energy pockets
that harbor with you, mostly based on past concerns and dragging a worrisome
future into your present awareness. This traps and holds negative energy
in the present, shutting the door to influence from the
Soul, which only operates when the
commander, your mind, is in present
You won't tend to make others
responsible for your feelings if you stay in present awareness, that is,
you keep your mind on you in the present. That way, negativities can't
creep in and insidiously
erode mental balance.
Energy must flow and go
if it is to cleanse and heal the dis-ease
that caused the disease. The test is results. Are you feeling better about
things? Are things better, going better and come easier? Is your mind increasingly
alert to your inner thoughts and feelings? Do you feel a sense of connection
with all in the universe? Are you more at ease and functional in
relationships? Are you having more passion for what you do in life? Calmer?
More confident? Then energy is moving. You are on the right path once you
notice a definite brain response,
that is, you now see things in a better light than before. Do you see yourself
different, a better different? You'll know you are 'in
the spirit' when your vision of life is unfolding. Details begin
to fit together and you feel you are here for a good purpose.
As in all things of wholeness,
the key is to stop and to
clean out, that which is preventing complete wholeness. The Soul has

is a high consciousness activity and involves where
our minds be in each moment. Your mind's 'screen' is like any screen,
a TV, a computer screen, where one can view things such as images and words
on it..Many people

those things which one wants to keep in memory as having importance
Being inspired means to

of this infinite energy
if we wish to live better, happier lives!
The loss of fear occurs because
we have discovered a part of ourselves that is beyond change, beyond the
ego level of life. This is.the
Soul. This is a different realm.than
we may have been used to.
Chopra has explained, understand and accept the issue causing you anxiety
and then release it forever by thinking of it while taking a big breath
and releasing the breath with the memory of the hurt going out with it.
It's more than imagination, it's imagination at work in the invisible realm.
We may fear death
because we care for our children. We just must trust our Creator that first,
they are His children and once we are gone, they'll continue being in His
care. Be sure to pray lots about your children – about things regarding
them; whatever comes to your mind when praying and
"...with you here, there's
nothing I fear": Words from a Celine Dion
song that take on new meaning
Often the cause of a spiritual
person's fear is being unsure of their stance
with their Creator, unsure if the Infinite One has really 'accepted' them,
unsure if they are aligned with Him, unsure if God sees them as righteous,
holy and perfect. All this is due to how they look at themselves.
They see themselves in the context
of their problems and sins, both past and present and may be apprehensive,
expecting the future to mimic
their past and present frames of mind. If like this, one falls short in
understanding exactly how God really looks at them.
We are often hindered
in achieving success in life because we fear failure, so much so that we
let this decide for us in ways that make us think 'I can't'. This is because
our minds are on the pathway
We fear our time might be
wasted and our security would be risked if we choose another direction.
Others may then look upon us with disdain.
It's good to seek advice and avoid hastily charging out.(Proverbs
11:14; 15:22; 24:6),
but the danger is in allowing the words of others to run our lives rather
than thinking about their advice apart from any emotion of fear we may
have. Realize that accomplishment comes from taking action to do what has
been decided to do. One's worth in anything is their decisions backed up
with positive actions toward their decisions.."Character

and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success

is no longer a worry for people where the spiritual things are at the top
of their living list:.Hebrews
2:15; 2Timothy 1:7. Other fears
one may have can also be dispensed
with, such as the
poisons which may be in food, the air, etc., as one grows in the higher
consciousness of the Creator, wherein is increased faith and love:.Galatians
5:6 "For in Emmanuel
Christ... faith works by love."
If you are in the clutches
of worry, do something about it.
