Text: Eccl. 12:13; Malachi 2:5

THE FEAR OF GOD:

The whole duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments. Eccl. 12:13

Excellent leaders do not just set goals, but they set standards’’. Malachi 2:5.

The set goals touch the heart first and corrupt priests to watch out and ensure complete compliance

to the later.

In Proverbs 1:26; Psalm 53:5; Malachi 1:6

The Lord of hosts saith unto you, o’ priest a son honoureth his father and a servant his master, and if

I be a father where is my honour? And if I be a master where is my fear?

Count on all the sins you have committed and see your nakedness. From now on, from the rising of

the sun even unto the going down of same, God’s name shall be great amongst us and in every place

all the time.

 

In Romans 13:7(Please read)

Render therefore to all their dues; tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to

whom fear; honour to whom honour. {Prov.24:24 & 1Samuel 12:18}.

A brother/sister is transferred from a sister congregation to us here and we are asked to assist

him/her in every way to settle down well in Uyo. Some of us use that opportunity to cheat that

bro/sister as it happened to some of us who came down from Calabar looking for accommodation

and plot of land to buy and settle down. Minus the timely advice given to us by some of our

responsible brothers, most of us would have been duped seriously at that time.

See what is recorded in Rom.16:1-2.

2 Tim.1:7; 1Tim.1:12; Heb 2:15

Jeremiah 32:40 – God decided to put His fear in our hearts so that we should not depart from Him.

FEAR OF DEATH: This makes us to be in bondage throughout our lifetime. Because of this, He

took on not the nature of angels, but took on the seed of Abraham so that in all things pertaining to

God, He might be a faithful high priest to make reconciliation for the sins of the people possible as a

merciful and faithful high priest. Heb 2:15-18.

However, remember what is recorded in Malachi 2:5-7, 10.

Also remember what is recorded in Heb 4:1 & verse 16

Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us of entering into His rest, any of you should seem to

come short of it.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to

help in time of need.

This we ask the God of host to grant unto us in Jesus Mighty name! Amen!
