For you see, every sin, every sorrow, every crime, and every shadow which lies upon man and woman may be expressed in tears of fear. Fear is the father of unkindness, fear dehumanizes. When a person is in a panic state of fear that’s the tome the rattlesnake strikes, the dog bites, and the horse runs away, the cat scratches, the scorpion attaches, the bull gouges, the woman lies, or the man kills.
Yes, Fear is the devil's other name.
Fear causes the youth to poison themselves with drugs, pills and alcohol, lose their money in gambling, and taint their bodies in the house of death.
Fear unloosens the zone of a carefree lifestyle to a woman and makes crooks out of men.
Fear has a direct tendency to impair reasoning, and the moment we give way to it, we fail in understanding, discernment, consideration, wisdom, fairness, insight and good sound judgment.
I think I ought to tell you, Fear robs the soul of sunshine. Fear damages a healthy days by thoughts of distant darkness, and it spoils the pleasant hours of friendship by apprehension of separation and bereavement. It blights the season of prosperity by prophesying of loss, defeat and misery.
Fear eats out the heroism of the heart, destroys the fiber of the soul, and forces of characters to panic when the day of real trials come. But the sad thing about fear is that thousands of so-called Christians are the most fearful.
Oh, my brothers and sisters, I think I ought to tell you, God got an Antidote to overcome Fear and that is Faith, and no true child of God should be fearful of no man. Jesus plainly speaks of fear in [St Matthew 10:28], "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." There are four freedoms: Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of want, and freedom of fear.
Well, when all humans' hope of freedom of fear fails, we have God's assurance that He has an Antidote to Overcome Fear and He’ll make everything alright. Oh yes, Bethel Lights, the answer to your fears lies in Jesus Christ. Many of us are running to doctors, psychiatrists, and headshrinkers, only to discover that they can't do you any good. But, if you want to alleviate your fears, turn it over to Jesus.
