THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISITS!!!
I am thankful to each and everyone of you for visiting my blogsite and Dr. Gold’s site. Dr. Gold is my other half, who writes mainly on biblical Endtimes issues. Our desire is that God will continue to move in your lives as He has in ours and that you will be blessed and encouraged, as we all draw closer to Him each day. Let us be ever mindful of the signs about us that tell us that we need to prepare ourselves for the soon coming of the Lord. God delights in those who seek after Him, and He loves us with an everlasting love. He will not leave us nor forsake us. Trust Him totally as the psalmist David who said:
I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.
The LORD is my rock,and my fortress, and my deliverer;
my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler,and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised:
so shall I be saved from mine enemies. (Psalm 18:1-3)
Oil Painting by Liz ‘Riding Out the Storm’
Are you going through a storm in your life today? This painting is based on a real life event of a fishing boat scrambling to return to the harbor. A storm was moving in and the ocean was very rough with unusually large swells. The boat made it back safely!
Here are Bible verses to assure you that Jesus is looking out for us. He is our harbor light; He is our rock, our fortress and strong tower.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7 NIV)
For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. (Psalms 61:3)
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. (Psa 91:2)
Wonderful post that reminds us who we are in Christ when we have accepted Jesus into our heart.
A young boy from the New York slums was sent to the country by the *Fresh Air Fund. He arrived late at night and was shown into a bedroom in the host farmhouse and told he was to sleep there. It was like another world to the young chap who had spent his whole life in the slums, usually sleeping on the streets or in a dark hallway. He had never had a bedroom or even slept in a proper bed. In fact, he couldn’t remember ever being alone in a room before.

This post is particularly addressed to viewers who have questions and concerns about the subject of FEAR.
Someone wants to know, “What does of whom shall I be afraid mean?”
Somebody else asked, “Who should I fear?”
Please read ‘Whom Shall I Fear? Of Whom Shall I Be Afraid?’ which I posted on Nov. 13, 2012. It is about living a life without fear knowing that God has our back. We have no one and nothing to be afraid of because God loves us and cares for us. He says to us over and over again, “Don’t be afraid” and “Fear not”. We have nothing to fear, but fear itself, which is not of God and does not come from God. 2 Timothy 1:7 tells us,
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
The spirit of fear does not come from God. Fear and anxiety comes from Satan. This verse says that we have (the spirit of) power, and (the spirit of) love, and (the spirit of) a sound mind, that God has given to us. It describes the Holy Spirit. Those who have put their faith and trust in God and His Word have the Holy Spirit as their friend, teacher, comforter. The Holy Spirit is also our advocate and protector against the evil in the world that Satan is responsible for.
When the Bible speaks of ‘the fear of God or fear God’ it refers to how God should be regarded, with holy reverence, respect and honor. That being said, know that God is on our side; He doesn’t want us to have fear or to be afraid of Him. He is our Father in Heaven who loves us and wants to bless us; He desires that we give Him honor and respect for who He is- the Almighty Father, Creator of heaven and earth, Savior and Redeemer of mankind. All power is His and He is worthy of our praise!
To answer the question: “Who should I fear?“ We must FEAR GOD and have a holy reverence for Him. If this question means, “Who should I be afraid of or fearful of?” the answer will still be the same. If you have not entrusted your life to God’s care, you place your very life in jeopardy. Those who reject God and do not place their trust in Him will not be under His protective care. They will be subject to the influence and evil works of Satan, who is the Father of lies, the deceiver, the thief and robber of their blessings. Satan will rule their lives. They will be victimized by Satan and in the end will be cast into the lake of fire with him, along with all those whose names are not written in the book of life (Rev 20:15).
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
