The Fear of THE LORD: Part 6

Tuesday, February 28th, 2023

Walking in The Fear of THE LORD requires our understanding of HIS Divine Intent!

If you are not walking according to the expectations of Jesus, you must repent.  Repentance means to change our mind and walk in a different direction.  We must no longer walk in a worldly direction but instead walk in a GODLY manner that is consistent with our destiny established before we were born.  People have a strong tendency to resist changing their minds.  Jesus saw this in the Pharisees… they missed it!  They were unwilling to correct their thinking.  We must be willing to correct our thinking as well.

We must prove our repentance through a changed life.

The Fear of THE LORD is not being scared of GOD.  To fear GOD means to venerate HIM.  The word venerate means: to honor, respect, esteem, value, reverence, and to stand in awe of HIM more than anything or anyone else.  We firmly embrace GOD’S Heart; we Love what HE Loves and we hate what HE hates.  HE Loves sinners but hates their sins.

Being scared means that you have something to hide from THE LORD whereas the Fear of THE LORD means you have nothing to hide.

Moses recorded by THE SPIRIT in Exodus chapter 20:

20  And Moses said to the people, “Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His Fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.”

21 So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was.

We are meant to run to The Presence of THE LORD, not away from HIM!  Moses tried to correct their thinking but except for Joshua and Caleb, the adults would not change their minds.  As a result, they never entered the Promised Land.

Wisdom wrote in Proverbs chapter 1:

2  To know Wisdom and instruction, To perceive the Words of understanding,

3 To receive the instruction of Wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity;

4 To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion-

5 A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,

6 To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles.

7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Hebrews chapter 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.

29 For Our God is a consuming Fire.

The Holy Spirit will correct our course and move us toward the Consuming Fire if we are willing to change (i.e., repent).  Embrace FATHER’S correction and do not allow your emotions to dictate your response.  Repentance is positive so don’t allow pride to prevent you to walk with a repentant heart.

Repentance is to get us back on track with FATHER’S original plan for us!

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 5

Walking in The Fear of THE LORD is the beginning of our empowerment!

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 1:

3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every Spiritual blessing in the Heavenly places in Christ,

4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be Holy and without blame before Him in Love,

5 having predestined us to adoption as Sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,

6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. 

I am in relentless pursuit of the manifestation of the Fear of THE LORD.  Walking in Love is vital to this pursuit as well as being Holy and without blame.  Nothing else matters!  It is HIS Divine Intent that you and I walk Holy.  If we were not able, HE would not have expected it.

Paul further wrote by The Holy Spirit in Ephesians chapter 5:

25  Husbands, Love your wives, just as Christ also Loved the church and gave Himself for her,

26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of Water by the Word,

27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be Holy and without blemish.

The Word cleanses and purifies us, removing any and all spots, wrinkles, and blemishes.  This is why The Holy Spirit has me include many Scriptures in these writings.  This is why we set up the application to allow you to read and hear Scriptures throughout the day.

The three main parts of the sanctuary and courtyard in the Old Testament were the court, the Holy Place, and the Most Holy Place.  In order to be allowed to walk into the Most Holy Place, the high priest had to be cleansed and purified.  This illustrates what is required now for us to enter into His Presence.  Where do you want to be in the sanctuary?  I want no distance separating myself from FATHER.

Peter wrote in 1st Peter chapter 1:

13  Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

14 as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance;

15 but as He who called you is Holy, you also be Holy in all your conduct,

16 because it is written, “Be Holy, for I am Holy.”

17 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;

FATHER commanded us to be Holy!

We are to prepare your hearts and minds for action! For when Jesus Christ is unveiled, a greater measure of grace will be released to us.  As God’s obedient children, we must never again shape our lives by the desires that we followed when we didn’t know better.  Instead, we are to shape our lives to become like the Holy One Who called us.  Since we call on HIM as Our Heavenly Father, the impartial Judge who judges according to each one’s works, we should live each day with Holy awe and reverence throughout our time on earth.

Let us not treat our relationship with FATHER as commonplace but instead give HIM the full respect and reverence HE deserves!

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 4

Monday, February 27th, 2023

The Fear of THE LORD is the beginning!

You cannot get FATHER to do something HE already wants to do OR won’t do.  We cannot convince HIM to part from HIS Divine Intent.  So, how do you find out what HIS Divine Intent is?  The Word and The Holy Spirit will communicate HIS Divine Intent.  How can you hear better?  By moving closer to HIM.

Peter wrote by The Holy Spirit in 2nd Peter chapter 1:

3  Everything we could ever need for Life and Godliness has already been deposited in us by His Divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing Him Who has called us by name and invited us to come to Him through a glorious manifestation of His goodness.

4 As a result of this, He has given you magnificent promises that are beyond all price, so that through the power of these tremendous promises we can experience partnership with the Divine Nature, by which you have escaped the corrupt desires that are of the world.

The Old Testament illustrates the process of moving closer to Our Heavenly Father.  In Exodus chapter 26, FATHER gives Moses precise instructions for the construction of The Tabernacle where FATHER would dwell among the people.  The artisans had been anointed by FATHER before they were formed in the womb to be able to construct the various elements in superior fashion.  There was nothing to be commonplace in this construction!  Construction The Tabernacle was a form of worship within itself.  Excellence was required in every aspect of construction!

The Holy of Holies, The Holy Place, and The Court of The Tabernacle were all constructed with concise directions.

Moses records by THE SPIRIT in Exodus chapter 26:

20  “And you shall command the children of Israel that they bring you pure oil of pressed olives for the light, to cause the lamp to burn continually.

21 In the tabernacle of meeting, outside the veil which is before the Testimony, Aaron and his sons shall tend it from evening until morning before the LORD. It shall be a statute forever to their generations on behalf of the children of Israel.

The oil represents the continuous light (revelation) given to us by The Holy Spirit.  We are meant to walk continuously led by The Holy Spirit in all matters.

The Beloved Disciple wrote by The Holy Spirit in Revelation chapter 1:

4  From John to the seven churches in western Turkey: May the kindness of God’s grace and peace overflow to you from Him Who is, and Who was, and Who is coming, and from the seven Spirits who are in front of His Throne,

5 and from Jesus Christ the Faithful Witness, the Firstborn from among the dead and the ruling King, who rules over the kings of the earth! Now to the One Who constantly Loves us and has loosed us from our sins by His Own Blood,

6 and to the One Who has appointed us as a Kingdom of priests to serve His God and Father—to Him be glory and dominion throughout the eternity of eternities! Amen!

You and I have been appointed to serve as priests to Our Heavenly Father.  It is our responsibility to keep the Light burning, without exception.  The seven churches given this command did not heed the Words of Jesus.  They cease to exist today.

James wrote by The Holy Spirit in his Epistle, chapter 4:

7  So then, surrender to God. Stand up to the devil and resist him and he will turn and run away from you.

8 Move your heart closer and closer to God, and He will come even closer to you. But make sure you cleanse your life, you sinners, and keep your heart pure and stop doubting.

9 Feel the pain of your sin, be sorrowful and weep! Let your joking around be turned into mourning and your joy into deep humiliation.

10 Be willing to be made low before the Lord and He will exalt you!  TPT

In other Words:

7  Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.

8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

9 Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.

10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.  NKJV

The four steps to drawing near to FATHER:

1 Humble yourself and yield to HIS Authority

2 Resist the devil

3 Don’t allow yourself to be enticed by the devil

4 Don’t be afraid to express deep sorrow for your past lawlessness

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 3

Friday, February 24th, 2023

What Dutch shares is exactly what we have been praying for and expecting.

As FATHER has told me multiple times, “Now is the time”. We are expecting similar events in other places, including hospitals and K-12 schools.

I suggest you share this blog with those who are also expecting a major move of FATHER.

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 2

Thursday, February 23rd, 2023

The Fear of THE LORD is the beginning!

We are to have access to Our Heavenly Father directly because of what Jesus did.  We are to pray to FATHER, not Jesus, though we are to pray in His Name.  The closer we are to FATHER, the greater the Fear of The Lord.  My greatest desire is to be intimate with HIM and walk in The Fear of THE LORD.  Only then will I be able to properly judge all matters.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 5:

30 “Nothing I do is from My own initiative. As I hear the judgment passed by My Father, I execute those judgments. And my judgments will be perfect, because I seek only to fulfill the desires of My Father who sent Me.

We are to be FATHER’S instruments while on this earth.

The name Jehoshaphat means “Jehovah has judged”.  Neither your name nor my name is included in that meaning so let us not make any judgments apart from FATHER’S specific directions.  Only by walking in the Fear of THE LORD can we properly execute judgment.

It is written by THE SPIRIT in 2nd Chronicles chapter 19:

4  So Jehoshaphat dwelt at Jerusalem; and he went out again among the people from Beersheba to the mountains of Ephraim, and brought them back to the LORD God of their fathers.

5 Then he set judges in the land throughout all the fortified cities of Judah, city by city,

6 and said to the judges, “Take heed to what you are doing, for you do not judge for man but for the LORD, Who is with you in the judgment.

The judges were sternly directed to judge no one apart from The Fear of THE LORD.  It must be no different for you and me!

7 Now therefore, let the Fear of the LORD be upon you; take care and do it, for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, no partiality, nor taking of bribes.

When walking in this manner, man cannot sway us toward bias concerning a matter.

8 Moreover in Jerusalem, for the judgment of the LORD and for controversies, Jehoshaphat appointed some of the Levites and priests, and some of the chief fathers of Israel, when they returned to Jerusalem.

9 And he commanded them, saying, “Thus you shall act in the Fear of the LORD, faithfully and with a loyal heart:

10 Whatever case comes to you from your brethren who dwell in their cities, whether of bloodshed or offenses against law or commandment, against statutes or ordinances, you shall warn them, lest they trespass against the LORD and wrath come upon you and your brethren. Do this, and you will not be guilty.

11 And take notice: Amariah the chief priest is over you in all matters of the LORD; and Zebadiah the son of Ishmael, the ruler of the house of Judah, for all the king’s matters; also the Levites will be officials before you. Behave courageously, and the LORD will be with the good.”

There will be times when we must walk courageously in The Fear of THE LORD.  If GOD be for us, who can be against us?

The Fear of THE LORD: Part 1

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2023

The Fear of THE LORD is the beginning!

It is written by THE SPIRIT in 2nd Chronicles chapter 17:

3   Now the LORD was with Jehoshaphat, because he walked in the former ways of his father David; he did not seek the Baals,

4 but sought the God of his father, and walked in His Commandments and not according to the acts of Israel.

5 Therefore the LORD established the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah gave presents to Jehoshaphat, and he had riches and honor in abundance.

6 And his heart took delight in the ways of the LORD; moreover he removed the high places and wooden images from Judah.

Jehoshaphat removed the manmade altars where people had worshipped other gods.  When he did this, he exalted THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY above anything manmade.  We must ask ourselves, are we worshipping anything or anyone other than FATHER?  Are we focused on the worldly to the point where we are constantly drawn to it?

7 Also in the third year of his reign he sent his leaders, Ben-Hail, Obadiah, Zechariah, Nethanel, and Michaiah, to teach in the cities of Judah. [8] And with them he sent Levites: Shemaiah, Nethaniah, Zebadiah, Asahel, Shemiramoth, Jehonathan, Adonijah, Tobijah, and Tobadonijah-the Levites; and with them Elishama and Jehoram, the priests.

9 So they taught in Judah, and had the Book of the Law of the LORD with them; they went throughout all the cities of Judah and taught the people.

It is vital that we read and focus on The Word, especially the Words of Jesus!  If He said to do something, then simply do it!

10 And the Fear of the LORD fell on all the kingdoms of the lands that were around Judah, so that they did not make war against Jehoshaphat.

Jehoshaphat clearly expressed his Love for GOD when he removed those manmade altars.  This was a precursor to the Fear of THE LORD manifesting in The Kingdom.  What was the result?  Nobody would dare to confront Jehoshaphat and the land was fully protected by the Fear of THE LORD.

11 Also some of the Philistines brought Jehoshaphat presents and silver as tribute; and the Arabians brought him flocks, seven thousand seven hundred rams and seven thousand seven hundred male goats.

12 So Jehoshaphat became increasingly powerful, and he built fortresses and storage cities in Judah.

13 He had much property in the cities of Judah; and the men of war, mighty men of valor, were in Jerusalem.

The name Jehoshaphat means “Jehovah has judged”.

Do you want to be fully blessed and prosper in these challenging times?  First, walk in Agape Love for GOD is Love.  How do you do this?  Plant those Scriptures in your heart and The Holy Spirit will take that Seed and water It so that It will produce good fruit.  This will allow you to draw near to GOD, THEN HE will draw near to you.

As you draw near to GOD, you set the stage for the Fear of THE LORD to manifest in your life.  When that occurs, you will never be the same and you will be fully equipped to fulfill your calling.

Why Give?

Tuesday, February 21st, 2023

Why my wife and I give tithes and offerings.

Jesus spoke in John chapter 15:

9  “As the Father Loved Me, I also have Loved you; abide in My Love.

10 If you keep My Commandments, you will abide in My Love, just as I have kept My Father’s Commandments and abide in His Love.

11 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.

12 This is My Commandment, that you Love one another as I have Loved you.

13 Greater Love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

“If” is the key to us abiding and allowing His Love to nourish our hearts.  This is how we live in His Love.

Jesus spoke in Luke chapter 6:

38 “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Wisdom wrote by THE SPIRIT in Proverbs chapter 19:

17  Every time you give to the poor you make a loan to the Lord. Don’t worry—you’ll be repaid in full for all the good you’ve done.  TPT

And in Proverbs chapter 28:

27 He who gives to the poor will not lack, But he who hides his eyes will have many curses.  NKJV

Jesus was commanding us in the same manner as Moses wrote by THE SPIRIT in Deuteronomy chapter 28:

1  “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the Voice of the LORD Your God, to observe carefully all His Commandments which I command you today, that the LORD Your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.

2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the Voice of the LORD Your God

Jesus is The Voice of GOD in the Gospels!

Paul also understood this Commandment as he wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians 4:

15   As you know, you Philippians were the only ones who gave me financial help when I first brought you the Good News and then traveled on from Macedonia. No other church did this.

16 Even when I was in Thessalonica you sent help more than once.

17 I don’t say this because I want a gift from you. Rather, I want you to receive a reward for your kindness.

18 At the moment I have all I need-and more! I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me with Epaphroditus. They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God.

19 And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.  NLT

FATHER looks at our hearts when we give and knows if it is out of Love or out of duty brought on by guilt or coercion.  I have given out of both guilt and coercion in my younger years.  However, I transitioned to giving out of Love and resisting coercion.

I mostly give to Servias because I know the purity of the purpose.  Our expenses are minimal, and my family’s contributions easily cover those costs.  The latest two books we offer were not funded by your contributions thus allowing all of your giving to be directed to the Kids In Need.

My business has funded the web development for FATHER has blessed us accordingly.  None of this disclosure is to exalt me, rather it is to show you the reality and blessings of obeying the Words of Jesus.

Paul spoke by The Holy Spirit in Acts chapter 20:

32   “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

33 I have coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel.

34 Yes, you yourselves know that these hands have provided for my necessities, and for those who were with me.

35 I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the Words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”

Paul was also sharing the motivation behind giving.  You will be blessed in this life when you joyfully give out of Love!

Led By Love

Monday, February 20th, 2023

What mindset defines your path?

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

1  There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

The case is closed concerning your past and it is time to move on.

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,

4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Since GOD is LOVE, HIS SPIRIT is Love as well.  When we walk according to THE SPIRIT, it can only occur by walking in Love!

5  Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.

In other words, those who are controlled by Agape Love think about things that that please THE SPIRIT.

6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to Life and peace.

7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will.

8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.

We all want to walk in Life and peace but it can only be accomplished by walking in Agape Love.  It is our decision what path we take.

9  But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to Him at all.)

Your spirit is now perfected and complete IN CHRIST.  It is the mind that must be renewed by The Word.  Our mind is where we decide which path to pursue.

10 And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you Life because you have been made right with God.

11 The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, He will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.

We must learn to disregard what the body is telling us because it has not been perfected.

12 Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do.

13 For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live.

14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.

Said another way, all those who are led by the Love of GOD are children of GOD.

FATHER had me write all three books to bring us into maturity as Sons and Daughters of GOD.  I take no credit for the book.  The Holy Spirit led me to write each chapter over the last five years.  HE gave me the title in January of 2018.  I didn’t know if I would ever complete it but now is the time!

To Honor: Part 2

Sunday, February 19th, 2023

To honor FATHER’S Word is to value, respect, embrace, and walk in It.

To dishonor is to treat as common, ordinary, and not show respect or value… in action, word, and/or thought.

Jesus spoke in Matthew chapter 25:

31  “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the Holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the Throne of His glory.

32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

When Jesus said “all”, He meant “all” without exception.  It is vital that each of us assess whether are not we truly honored FATHER’S Word in Spirit and in Truth.  Simply modifying one’s behavior does not bring forth a true relationship.

33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

There was, is, and will be a True Kingdom for us to inhabit in all Its Glory.  The trials each of us faces every day is no comparison to the reward set before us.

35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

Jesus expresses what Agape Love does without reluctance or delay.  Our latest book focuses on who we truly are and what we do as a result.  It immerses us in that understanding that when embraced, will change our hearts.

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

Jesus specifically reveals the goodness attached to those acts of Agape Love.

41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’

46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Those who fail to walk in Love and instead walk in self-centeredness will suffer severe judgment.  They enjoyed the temporary at a severe long-term cost.

Honor and walking in The Word brings reward!

Facts change, Eternal Truths don’t.  What are you focusing on and embracing?  Are you a believer or an understander?

Those who walk in Love and the Fear of THE LORD are described in Isaiah chapter 60:

2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.

Honor all aspects of FATHER’S Word and you will be at HIS Right Hand.
