True Terrorism

                                                 True Terrorism

Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so. Many people have heard this. Some believe it , and some do not. For those who believe that Jesus took their place on a Roman cross, and died and rose again in their place for their sins , meeting Jesus will be wonderful. For those who do not believe God’s Word, and reject the provision of salvation from His wrath ,  meeting Jesus will be terrible. Here is the Biblical proof of that.

Jesus said in John 3:18 concerning Himself ; “ He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God ”. Unbelievers will be condemned to an eternal hell with the devil and his angels who will for an eternity receive  “ the terror of the Lord  ”.  Jesus said in Matthew 10:28 ; “ And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul : but  rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell  . ” Jehovah’s witnesses and others think you will be annihilated in hell. This is not biblically correct. You will suffer in eternal terror.

Paul knew this and was compelled to turn men from their sin to repentance and faith in Christ so they would not have to face the greatest terrorism ever to come. He warned us in  2nd Corinthians 5:11 : “ Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord  ,we  persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God ; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences . ”

God’s terror was with Jacob in Genesis 35:5 ; “ And they journeyed : and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob .”

There was a curse of terror on those who disobeyed God in Leviticus 26:16; “ I also will do this unto you ; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague,
that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart : and ye shall sow your seed in
vain, for your enemies shall eat it . “

Jeshurun forsook God , sacrificing to idols as America does today. Israel forsook the God who protected and led them , and so, God sent them terror; “ The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling with the man of gray hairs .” ( Deuteronomy 32: 25)

Rahab the harlot who helped the two Jewish spies had enough sense to fear God’s terror ; “  And she said unto the men , I know that the Lord hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you  .” (Joshua 2:9)

Job feared God’s terror :  “ For destruction from God was a terror to me , and by reason of his highness I could not endure”. ( Job 31:23)….. “  For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit : the terrors of God do set themselves in array against me ”. ( Job 6:4)…. “ Terrors shall make him afraid on every side ,  and shall drive him to his feet “. ( Job 18:11)….. Job spoke of the curses of the rich, as Jesus also did, forecasting terror upon them ; “ The rich man shall lie down , but he shall not be gathered ,; he openeth his eyes and he is not. Terrors take hold on him as waters , a tempest stealeth him away in the night “. ( Job 27:20)….In Psalm 73:19 the rich are made an object of God’s terror ; “  How are they brought into desolation , as in a moment ! they are utterly consumed with terrors . “

Isaiah spoke of God’s terror ; “ Behold, the Lord , the LORD of hosts , shall lop the bough with terror : and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down , and the haughty shall be humbled ”. ( Isaiah 10:33)    And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt , everyone that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself , because of the counsel of the LORD of hosts , which he hath determined against it .” ( Isaiah 19:17)   
“ Thine heart shall meditate terror  .” ( Isaiah 33:18)

Jeremiah spoke to Pashur about the Lord’s terror in Jeremiah 20: 4;  “ For thus saith the LORD, Behold , I will make thee a terror to thyself , and to all thy friends ; and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies , and thine eyes shall behold it  .”

Jesus warned people to fear him in Luke 12:4 and 5 wherein he said ; “ And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body , and after that have no more that they can do , but I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear : Fear him which after he hath Killed hath power to cast into hell ; yea , I say unto you , Fear him . “

He loves us whom he made , but killed every human being except Noah and his family of seven others long ago because sin dominated the earth . Jesus is God , and the same loving God who died on the cross for our sins will hate sin until it will be remembered no more in the New Jerusalem he will create after he destroys the earth and casts the devil and his angels , and the unbelievers in to hell . He killed Ananias and Sapphira for sinning . He mandated the early church to stone those who sinned and he said in the New Testament that the church need continually rebuke those that sin  before all . He will only accept clean and spotless believers. The only way to make an in impression is with fear . Modern  clergy fear men rather than God when they fail to stress fear as a catalyzing factor in salvation . Crucifixion should reveal to the saved the hatred God has for sin . It doesn’t seem to register today . Surely the time has long passed that “ they will not listen to sound doctrine ”.  Psalm 76:7 resonates instruction to fear God; “ Thou , even thou art to be feared : and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry ? ”

Godly fear can bring wisdom ; “ The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom : and the knowledge of the holy is understanding .” ( Proverbs 9:10)

“ The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge : but fools despise wisdom and instruction  .“  ( Proverbs 1:7 )
“ The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom : a good understanding have all they that do his commandments : his praise endureth forever .“ ( Psalm 111:10 )

“ And unto man he said , behold , the fear of the LORD , that is wisdom ; and to depart from evil is understanding  .“ ( Job 28:28 )

“ Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter : Fear God and keep his commandments : for this is the whole duty of man”. ( Ecclesiastes 12:13 )

“ That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God , to keep all his statutes and his commandments , which I command thee , thou and thy son , and thy son’s son , all the
days of thy life ; and that thy days may be prolonged  .“ ( Deuteronomy 6:2 )

“ And now Israel , what doth the LORD thy God require of thee , but to fear the LORD thy God , to walk in all his ways , and to love him , and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul  .“ ( Deuteronomy 10:12 )

“ And Moses said unto the people , Fear not : for God is come to prove you , and that his fear may be before your faces that ye sin not . “  (Exodus 20:20 )

“ Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD ; that walketh in his ways . “ (Psalm 128:1 )

“ Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God , and serve him , and shalt swear by his name  .“ ( Deuteronomy 6:13 )

“ Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb , when the LORD said unto me , Gather me the people together and I will make them hear my words that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth , and that they may teach their children .” ( Deuteronomy 4:10 )

“ Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God ; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave , and swear by his name .“ ( Deuteronomy 10:20)

“And all the people shall hear , and fear , and do no more presumptuously ” . ( Deut. 17:13)

“ And those which remain shall hear , and fear , and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you .“ ( Deut. 19:20 )

“ And all Israel shall hear , and  fear , and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you .” ( Deut. 13:11 )

“ If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book , that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name ,  THE LORD THY GOD .” (Deut 28:58)

“ And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones , that he die: so shalt thou put away evil away from among you ; and all Israel shall hear and fear ”. ( Deut. 21:21)

“ Be not wise in thine own eyes : fear the LORD and depart from evil”. ( Proverbs 3:7 )

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged :and by fear of the LORD men depart from evil . “ ( Proverbs 16:6)

 “A wise man feareth , and departeth from evil : but the fool rageth , and is confident . “ ( Proverbs 14:16)

  By humility and fear of the LORD are riches , and honor and life. “ ( Proverbs 22:4)

“ Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself ; and let him be your fear , and let him be your dread .” ( Isaiah 8:13 )

“ Praise ye the LORD . Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD , that delighteth greatly in his    commandments .“ (Psalm 112 : 1 )

“ He will bless them that fear the LORD , both small and great .” ( Psalm 115:3 )

“ Behold , that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD . ” ( Psalm 128:4 )

“ Ye shall walk after the LORD your God , and fear him , and keep his commandments , and obey his voice , and ye shall serve him , and cleave unto him . “ ( Deut. 13:4 )

“ And Moses said unto the people , Fear not : for God is come to prove you , and that his fear may be before your faces , that ye sin not  .“ ( Exodus 20:20)

“ Now consider this , ye that forget God , lest I tear you in pieces and there be none to deliver  .“ ( Psalm 50:22)

“ The wicked shall be turned into hell , and all the nations that forget God .”( Psalm 9:17)

All the nations of the earth that to some degree promoted the true gospel have long ago forsaken it. The United States supposed Christian roots are dubious at best, being composed of iron and clay , I believe, God’s Word , ( the iron ) , and man’s secular satanic social gospel , ( the clay) . This miry amalgamation has resulted in an irrevocable damage regarding  the furtherance of the spread of truth . Man’s unwillingness to fear God,  his willingness to listen to liars who change His word , who promote health , wealth , joy , tongues , a false rapture misrepresenting the time of Christ’s return , the acceptance of homosexuality and  witchcraft in the church , and all compromises made in the last several hundred years particularly , have resulted in the obvious apostate church. The only thing to bring but a few to repentance will be the fear of God. The false charismatic prophets , the United Nation’s and other new avatars are in the wings and on stage now deceiving the unwary. Witchcraft is the new world religion as the United Nations dreams. A few will listen to the truth if you tell them the real gospel , and not a watered down version of God’s word which saturates the world and is promoted by  Trinity Broadcasting Network . Their works are largely heresy. True Christians can see this. The devil loves to give much “truth” to instill a little distortion of God’s word into those who watch TBN programs which subvert most hearers. Occupy until Christ comes , “ And others save with fear , pulling them out of the fire , hating even the garment spotted by the flesh “. ( Jude 23)
