Foolish People do not FEAR God
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. The fool says in his heart: There is no God. The fear of God causes people to turn from their sin and wickedness, and to obey God.
Sadly most believers do not even fear God, they have no fear of God. If we truly believe in Jesus Christ then we will obey Him. Jesus said: Do not fear him who can kill the body and afterwards he can do nothing, but fear Him who after He has killed the body, has the power to throw into hell. That person is Jesus Christ Himself, because all power and all authority belongs to Him and He will judge all men for their deeds. Those who disobey Jesus will perish.
Many Christians have no fear of God and that is why they live in sin, they are exactly like the rest of the world? Many of them are fornicators, homosexuals. They are no different from the rest of the world and they think that God will excuse them because they believe in Him. Many go to confession and then they think they are forgiven, they can start sinning all over again. Confession means nothing if you do not repent of that sin, if you do not have remorse over it and you stop doing that sin, then that confession is senseless. You are wasting your breath and you are wasting your time, and God will hold you accountable for every sin.
Jesus Christ will judge every man according to their deeds. If we are wise, we will believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, we will STOP SINNING and we will live holy. Jesus said that if you look at a woman to desire her, to lust after her, then you have already committed adultery in your heart and in the sight of God you are an adulterer, you are guilty of adultery, and you will perish if you do not repent.
To repent does not just mean to change your mind or to confess. To repent means to turn away from that sin, and STOP SINNING. Stop sinning, stop doing that sin altogether because without holiness no man shall see God.
It is because the world does not fear God that people carry in in their sin and in their wickedness, but God will hold us accountable. We will be judged and we will be punished for every sin. Even one disobedience, even one sin, can take you to hell because without perfect obedience to Jesus, without perfect holiness we will not enter the kingdom of God. Narrow is the gate and straight is the way that leads to eternal life and very few there be that find it.
People go to church and they read the Bible, modern Christians are Bible students. They might know the Bible, but they don't know God, because they do not believe what is written in their Bible. If they truly believe what they study and what they quote then they would stop sinning, they will obey Jesus and SIN NO MORE, they will live holy and righteous. They will fear God.
Do you fear God? Do you obey Jesus Christ? Those who know Jesus, know the fear of God, they obey Him. They do not sin. They obey Him even in the slightest things, because they know that He does not tolerate disobedience. He does not tolerate deviance. Jesus Christ requires absolute obedience. That is what discipleship is about. It is about a total surrender and obedience to Jesus Christ, to live in the fear of God every moment of your life and then you will experience the presence of God, the comfort of God because God takes care of and He looks after those who fear Him and who obey Him. But to the sinner and the wicked man, God says:"There is no peace." There is only the expectation of the wrath and the judgment of God.
God is love but God is a consuming fire to those who disobey Him. Fear God, obey Him. Follow and obey Jesus Christ and you will live. Fear Jesus, obey Him and you will live.
May Jesus bless you.
