PROFIT IN THE FEAR OF GOD- PT.1



 

The fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
Proverbs 19:23

I remember my days at Evangel College, how I dreaded being caned by Mr. Madu.
The skill by which he drops that stick on an ass could make one stand for days.
I wasnt a rebellious student but there could be occasions of mass punishment which I often prayed wouldnt happen.

The fear of Mr. Madu made us listen attentively in class, do math and further math assignments and not turn our necks when he was invigilating.

Unconsciously, we got used to behaving in math class at least...LOL

However, the kind of fear God seeks is not the kind we gave to Mr. Madu.
The fear for Mr. Madu made us sit up in maths class; we dint take the "attitude" into other classes because that fear didnt change us.

GOD DESIRES AND DESERVES the reverence of his person and deep appreciation of his wisdom that leads us to make choices that please him. This kind of fear transforms your life.

Proverbs says the fear of the Lord leads to life.

When you have awesome reverence for God, his person and principles, you would enjoy (LIFE-the vitality, fruitfulness and fulfillment of existence).
That really is LIFE.

God wants to lead you into LIFE. He wants to help you rest content (in satisfaction) and untouched by trouble.

Have RESPECT FOR HIS INSTRUCTION. Stop being afraid of popular opinion.

FEAR GOD; FEEL LIFE!

IN THE WORDS OF JESUS...

It was the time of the passover. I had seen 32 passover feasts, during which my family and I, my disciples and I (When I began my public ministry), would slay the chosen lamb in honor of the father's ordinance. In those 32 years, everytime we ate the passover lamb, I was reminded that someday I would be the lamb that was slain. This 33rd year as I walked into Jerusalem on the 10th day of Nissan when the Lamb was to be chosen, I willingly gave myself as the lamb to be slain. They hailed, called out to me hosanna meaning "Save Us". With every shout and scream, I was reminded of my purpose. The very reason I was born was to die for these and many to be saved. Every voice, every stare, every palm tree, stirred in me a strong desire to accomplish my purpose. They thought they were asking me for political redemption but I knew they were asking me for total redemption. That week, I had the most temptations of my life . My mind fought against the enemy as he

PROPHETIC TIMELINE

Passover is 6 days away. It would begin on the evening of April 8, 2020 and will end April 16, 2020 . This year's passover is very unique. According to the Lord, It has never been this way before and will not be afterwards.  Here are some of the things that makes this year's passover unique. During the Passover I see horses racing down in haste towards a set destination. I hear the words, haste, haste!! At the sound of those words, the horsemen ride faster. Furious is the best word to describe the speed.. Time has been adjusted to run faster  than normal , beginning from the start of the 2020 Feast of Passover. We will henceforth notice the days swiftly moving by. The gates of righteousness will open wider than usual for more people to enter . This means that salvation or soul harvest will be extremely easy during this time. The Lord is asking us to intercede for the salvation of souls and witness to people. If you have been contending for territories, o
