types-of-fear

God willing I will be giving different sermons on fear. There will be series on fear. For example:

  • Fear, caused by Satan or a demon
  • Fear, the activity of one’s mind
  • Memories of fear
  • Feeling of fear
  • A spirit of Fear
  • Fear can become the source of many negative feelings and many more

There are many who say we must not have any fear, but that is not what the Bible teaches. Preachers just take a few verses like the Bible says “Fear Not!.& build a teaching. Holy Spirit taught me how to study the scriptures. I will teach you in another message how to study the Bible correctly with the help of Holy Spirit.

The Bible mentions two specific types of fear. The first type is beneficial and is to be encouraged. The second type is a detriment and is to be overcome. This is the basic to understand different kinds of fear. There are many discussions as whether or not the element of fearing the judgment of Our Father should be used in the preaching of the Gospel?

I remember when I wrote the book on hell, some pastors objected or even debated that the element of the-fear of Our Father, that is, the fear of the judgment of Our Father, should not be used and some thought it should. Some thought that it would be in error to preach so that people would have a fear of Hell.

I will be sharing a sermon in future about whether born again Christians can preach about hell & the judgment part of our Father in their gospel messages. Secondly, to speak about this kind of fear you need one quality & what is that? I will teach you in my coming sermons.

Let us begin this message of fear:

Generally speaking, there are two types of fear. There is a negative fear that Satan uses to try to destroy people, and there is a positive fear that Our Father uses to try to direct the lives of people.

Php 2:12 – Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING.

HOLY SPIRIT: The fear that Holy Spirit had mentioned in this verse is the fear of Our Father’s judgment. This element of fear is essential if one is to mature in his or her salvation or Born Again Experience.

Psa 103:13 – Like as a father pities his children, so the LORD pities them that fear him.

HOLY SPIRIT: Though this is a general statement about positive type of fear it includes an important point. The positive type of fear of Our Father gives Him opportunity to extend His compassion to people. There was a time when it was the general custom to speak of a believer as a “GOD-FEARING MAN.”
