NO FEAR HERE

No fear here

 

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

 

Jesus’ prophecy of the world near His Second Coming is described as being full of fear for looking after those things coming on the Earth. Luke 21:26 says, “Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”We have seen fear mounting worldwide since 9-11 with the increase of terrorism and terrorist acts happening more frequently. This world is headed for a time of trouble that the Prophet Daniel described as, “such as never was since there was a nation… Daniel 12:1.”

 

Without hope in Jesus multitudes of people will be gripped by fright and fear. For those who trust in Jesus and God’s promises to keep us there is glorious liberty from all fear. The writer of the same Book of Luke records this in Luke 1:74, 75, “That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.” Notice it says all the days of our life, not some days, sometimes, or once in awhile but ALL the days of our life.

 

God has not called the Body of Christ in the Earth to cope with fear or any other kind of oppression from the devil. Jesus went to great lengths to deliver us from the bondage of fear (Hebrews 2:14, 15) and to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). It is not the will of God for any of God’s children to live coping with fear, anxiety, panic attacks, or mental and emotional torment.  Second Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Fear is a spirit but it is not our spirit or spiritual nature.

 

The Good News is that we have been delivered from fear (Hebrew 2:14, 15), we’ve been delivered from satan’s authority (Colossians 1:13), and we have authority in the Name of Jesus to resist the devil (Matthew 28:18; James 4:7).  Satan cannot use fear on any Believer who has decided that they will not fear. Psalm 118:6 says, “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?”
