In Messiah’s name: for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.

Fools and brutes do not fear the Creator-God – in the end, they will suffer eternal death. (Ps.92: 5 – 9). For instance, Pharaoh brought disaster and death on his nation because he did not “fear God” (Exodus 9: 29-31). The total destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is another example.
The Hebrew meaning for the English term “fear” is to “morally revere”- meaning to show love, reverence, deep respect and honor.
“The fear of the Creator-God, the great I AM, is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom.” One must first be totally convinced that a Creator-God exists. When we realize and understand this, it is our duty to give him honor, deep respect, love and reverential fear.
HEAR Deuteronomy 10:12, 20
“And now, O Israel, what does the LORD (I AM) your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Fear the LORD your God and serve him. Hold fast to him and take your oaths in his name. He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes against Pharaoh and the Egyptians. (italics mine)”
The fear of God is the basis for our walking in His ways, serving Him, and loving him by keeping his commandments, laws, statutes and judgments.
HEAR the Book of Ecclesiasticus Chpt.1 verses 11 – 20
11 The fear of the Lord is glory and pride, happiness and a crown of joyfulness.
12 The fear of the Lord gladdens the heart, giving happiness, joy and long life.
13 For those who fear the Lord, all will end well: on their dying day they will be blessed.
14 The basis of wisdom is to fear the Lord; she was created with the faithful in their mothers’ womb;
15 she has made a home in the human race, an age-old foundation, and to their descendants will she faithfully cling
The fullness of wisdom is to fear the Lord; she intoxicates them with her fruits;
17 she fills their entire house with treasures and their storerooms with her produce.
18 The crown of wisdom is to fear the Lord: she makes peace and health flourish.
19 The Lord has seen and assessed her, he has showered down knowledge and intelligence, he has exalted the renown of those who possess her.
20 The root of wisdom is to fear the Lord, and her branches are long life.
Don’t be a fool/brute without the power to reason and think. Great tribulation, as prophesied in the bible, is at the door. Be wise and fear the great I AM, the Creator-God of all that exists. Do it today!
Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies and deceptions.
