ARE YOU BATTLING WITH FEARS?|Friday Easter Week 4


If yes, What are your fears? Do you not realize fear is a tool for manipulation by the evil ones: Satan and his agents! That is why when you are afraid you cannot do anything well! You can't act confidently, you can't think positively! Fear limits your ability to achieve set goals. In fact, the entire Bible tells us not to be afraid 365 times- one for each day! That means there's something about fears you need to know about.
I was in a trance and saw everyone around me afraid and when I asked why the fear, none could provide a genuine reason for the fear in them! For that reason, the Lord asked me to bring you this message!
If you're battling with fears and want to overcome them, read slowly...

John 14:1-2
"Jesus said to his disciples:‘Do not let your hearts be troubled.Trust in God still, and trust in me.There are many rooms in my Father’s house;if there were not, I should have told you."  Read also Matthew 10:26-33

POINTS FOR REFLECTION
1. Fear springs from the lower faculty of man(EMOTIONS) and NOT from REASON which is the higher faculty of man by which man comes to know God and the world placed in his charge (Gen 1:28). That is why the evil one injects fear through emotions and not through reason! He injects these fears through the realities of DEATH, POVERTY, IGNORANCE, or by his own existence and reality: DEVIL or his agents- evil people! 

2. FEAR OF DEATH
Once the Fear of Death comes people can no longer stand for the Truth, they compromise and can even expose others to dangers in order to save their own lives or seek fortification by devilish means. But Jesus says: "do not fear those that can kill the body but not the soul" (Matt. 10:28). Take the Christian martyr Stephen as example to overcome this type fear, and stand for your faith and what you believe; holding on to what St. Paul says in Romans 8:11: "If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, he who raised Jesus Christ from the dead will give live to your mortal bodies. Yes he will do it through his spirit who dwells within you."
3. FEAR OF POVERTY
When Fear of poverty strikes, people do all sorts of evil things in order to make money and survive! They become perverts in acquiring wealth with selfishness and stinginess! But Jesus says: "don't worry about what to eat or drink, your father in heaven will provide your needs" (Matt. 6:25). Therefore, work decently and pray for God shall bless and prosper the work of your hands with fruitfulness (Ps. 128:1-2).
4. FEAR OF IGNORANCE
When Fear of ignorance comes, people resist positive change and progress, and feel secure in their crude ways of doing things but become envious, and criticizing what others do well. They live their lives monitoring others not minding their business, but when faced with difficulties caused by their own ignorance, they seek solutions through fortune-telling, black magic, witchcraft, tarot reading, horoscope, occultism, and astral projections. 
No wonder the craving for prophecy and miracles in our days. But scripture says: "My people perish for lack of knowledge of me"(Hosea 4:6); another scripture says: "from the mouth of a Priest comes knowledge, and people should seek it" (Mal. 2:7) and again we are instructed: 'Fear of God is beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding' (Prob. 9:10). The Fear of God (Holy Fear/tremendum) springs from knowledge (of God) and not emotion and can be learned and taught to others.
5. FEAR OF THE DEVIL
Fear of the Devil or Evil people also causes some to run to God not because they truly love God but because they do not want "to go to hellfire" or because they want to enjoy God's protection! When these fears are no longer perceived, they return to prayerlessness and vice! But Jesus says: "by your perseverance [in Faith and good works] you will secure your lives" (Lk. 21:19).

TASK: Fear no more! For the Bible says in Romans 8:15: "You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of sonship, and by the Spirit's power we cry out to God, Abba Father!"
I declare over you the Power of the same Spirit; as you read this message let the Glory of God envelop your entire being now in the name of Jesus. Amen. (Pause for a while as the glory meets you)
 
Are you still harboring any fears? Call it by its name; repeat it three times. In faith connect to the Power of this Word and In the name of Jesus, I command that Fear in you; whatever form it appears or manifests in your life to leave you now; in Jesus name. Amen.

The tools to overcome these fears are TRUST and OBEDIENCE: Trust in God's Words and Obey the Word! Pray Psalm 125 now. CLICK TO PRAY

I pray for you: as you put your Trust in God May the Lord fortify you and mold you into a mountain that cannot be shaken but stands forever. Amen.
