- Day 69 -
Do Not Fear
YAHveh is instructing us with “mighty power…not to walk in the way of this people…in regard to all this people call a conspiracy …you are not to fear what they fear or be in dread of it. It is YAHveh Sabbaoth [who leads the host of angelic warriors] whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, And He shall be your dread” (Isaiah 8:11-13). Throughout Israel’s history, YAHveh used Israel’s enemies as war clubs to discipline, refine, and purify the small remnant who survived His discipline, judgment, and righteous indignation. We are not to fear the war clubs because YAHveh is in charge.
We are to fear YAHveh—it gives us wisdom. His word instructs us on how to live victoriously in these last days. YAHshua says, “Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul” (Matthew 10:28). Don’t fear Jew and Christian haters who are abounding worldwide. Don’t fear the ones who are going to kill you so that they can have food to eat when money is so scarce and food is even scarcer. He said don’t fear these things and don’t dread them. You have to be on your guard about fear—it is an epidemic, pandemic in proportion in the last days. It is contagious and being perpetrated over the airwaves and in our thoughts over and over again. Fear is being stamped into our beings, and we cannot allow this. YAHveh has not given His people a spirit of fear (see 2 Timothy 1:7).
Fear is for the people of the world, that is their inheritance. Satan is their father, the father of lies, and they are in store for great judgment. They should fear what is coming, but we, the children of YAHveh, are not to fear those who kill the body. We are to fear the One who has the power after the body is dead to throw us into everlasting torment and darkness. He is the One we are to fear (see Matthew 10:28). This is going to be part of the battle of the elect. Fear is going to have to be battled day and night as well as dread and terror when it is right at our door.
“The name of YAHveh is a strong tower; the righteous runs into it and is safe” (Proverbs 18:10). He alone can shelter and protect us. We cannot be about saving our lives, we have to be about dying filled with grace. We are called to die to our flesh. Whoever tries to save their lives are going to lose them (see Matthew 17:33). If we are filled with grace, it doesn’t matter what comes our way. We will endure it victoriously to the end.
The ones who are not infected with fear are the ones who are going to be used by YAHveh. This is what He is trying to bring to the attention of His people. Whoever has an ear, let them hear what the Spirit is saying in these last days where terror and pit are truly awaiting the people of the earth.
But overcoming faith, His love that casts out all fear, and hope that is given by amazing grace to His children will be a shield and a buckler that will keep us high above the enemies that cause fear and trepidation. This is why the righteous runs to Him daily having perfected a relationship where they can seek for Him at any moment and find Him. They cling and hold on to Him knowing YAHshua’s word promises, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you” (Isaiah 43:2). He will see them safely to the other side.
