Faith Over Fear

 

The Bible tells us to put faith over fear.

I am told there exist 365 scriptures that say, “fear not”, one for every day of the year.

One of the best known scriptures is this.  This is what God has said is the opposite of fear.

II Timothy 1:7  For God didn’t give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and self-control.

 

 

Here’s another.

Isaiah 41:10  Don’t you be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you.
Yes, I will help you.
Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.

 

 

There are two groups that use fear against you.  There are probably more, but here are a two.

One group consists of those trying to sell you something.  They will try to create in you some fear of what will happen if you don’t buy the product.

The other group is unrighteous governments.  They will create some big bad “boogeyman” to be afraid of in order to cede your authority of limited government to big government.  This has happened in this whole “jab” scenario.  People were told bad things would happen if they did not get the jab.  Figure were manipulated for news.  It is only more recently that actual facts are coming out.  These facts are far different than the ones used to manipulate people into taking the shot.

Fear is used by unrighteous governments.   For an atheistic government like communism or marxism to take over a nation, the nation has to first be drawn away from God.

If the United States overall, and the nations of the world overall, were strongly Christian, with citizens waking up each morning giving glory and thanks to God and seeking the Lord, it would not have been as easy for the governments to spread fear about Covid and it would not have been as easy for the governments to create medical tyrannies in their nations.

Jeremiah 17:5   Yahweh says:

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man,
    relies on strength of flesh,
    and whose heart departs from Yahweh.
For he will be like a bush in the desert,
    and will not see when good comes,
but will inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
    an uninhabited salt land.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in Yahweh,
and whose confidence is in Yahweh.
For he will be as a tree planted by the waters,
who spreads out its roots by the river,
and will not fear when heat comes,
but its leaf will be green,
and will not be concerned in the year of drought.
It won’t cease from yielding fruit.

 

Governments that want to enslave their citizens try to force them to “trust in man” or “trust in government” and look to government as the source of wisdom and supply.  We have certainly see that happen in the last few months.

Again, this post is about faith or fear.

You can see if people overall had faith in God, they would not respond so quickly in fear to the propaganda their government or controlled media publishes.  Instead, people would seek facts, they would see righteous counsel, they would seek the Lord as to what to do.

It is important to respond in faith, not fear, to situations.

It is important to seek God for wisdom and not react in fear.

James 1:5  But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

 

Update:

After finishing this article I heard a well know doctor, Dr. Peter McCullough talk, in this video, about the topic of fear.  It is so applicable that I am transcribing some of what he said here.

You can listen to and watch the full video here.

I am transcribing at the point  36:04 in the video.  Dr. Peter McCullough is speaking.

“We have to break the fear.  I think the most important meme I’ve ever seen so far on Covid-19 is a woman who’s holding her head in anguish and she says, ‘My vaccine doesn’t work unless you take yours.’…So you can’t underestimate how important the grip of fear is driving all the levers of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Every single step of the way is one step of things getting worse.  The way out of this pandemic is breaking our grip of fear.”

 

Wow.  That says it all, doesn’t it?  God has not given us a spirit of fear, and the thing driving this is fear.  Fear is not from God.
