The Fear of God

“And the fear of God was on all the kingdoms of those countries, when they had heard that the LORD fought against the enemies of Israel. So the realm of Jehoshaphat was quiet: for his God gave him rest round about.” 2 Chronicles 20:29-30 (KJV)

Jehoshaphat was noted as a man who did right in the sight of the LORD (v. 32).  He was facing a large contingent of  united armies against Judah, and he sought the LORD, believed Him and was delivered.

For the Christian of today the enemy is sin and the devil.  The reason there is little or no fear of God in our land is due to the unconfessed, lack of repentance of the Christian; and tolerance of evil deeds and men.


Father send down Your Spirit in power, glory, and honor to Your name upon all who are Your people.  Send down fire from heaven.

Put the fear of God back in Your people; then there will be a fear of God in the hearts of the enemy – all who are evil, all who exalt themselves against You, Your Spirit and Your Word.

Bless the Lord. Amen.

  1. So timely as always, and I have a point to ask and seek your answer. Donald Trump is leading the Republican candidates by a large margin. And we are in a time here on planet earth that seems perhaps to be the End times. Trump has said that he has never ask for God’s forgiveness. How could he then be a religious man? And is his lead a precursor of the the one who will possibly be selected as the person to represent the Republican party? In this time when there are so many excellent persons running, how does this play out ? Just wonder how this might fit what we know of the end times revealed in Revelation. Do you care to hazard a guess? Just asking. jlheman1945 Scary times. I hope many people are reading your excellent posts. jlehman1945


    1. Judith, I do not think I can answer your question(s). I think it is far too early to say one way or the other. As far as Trump’s “asking forgiveness” or not; I do not think he will ever seek anyone’s forgiveness; nor ask forgiveness for any wrong he may do. Therefore not too trustworthy.
