You know, it's rather strange to for me to say this, but in my greeting to you above I called you believers. What's strange is that believers where Christians are concerned is a minority. I find it strange that believers are considered fanatics. I have actually been called “too saved. " I have taught on faith for healing in a church, and pulled to the side by the pastor and his assistant who told me that I could no longer minister along those lines. They said that I would be giving people false hope?! They said everyone will die of sickness if they are not killed first. They even went on to say that because I use to smoke, I would get cancer for that! I was stunned at such ranting, so with that unbelief spewing out of their mouths I said the Word of the Kingdom declares that. . .
"Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. " Psalms 104:29 (emphasis added)
All God has to do is take our breath. He doesn't have to see us die from sickness and disease. You see child of God, I believe the Word as it is written, and what our King has told us that makes us blessed.
"Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. "
We are blessed when we believe without seeing, and this lesson was inspired to help all those who read it learn to believe without seeing. In order to do that we have to understand the promises to those who fear the Lord. This ministry is designed to restore kingdom principles that I know can really make any Christian a believer. The fear of the Lord or the King is not the torment of fear like in the movies. This fear is to worship the Lord. Remember, Jesus our King said that God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and Truth. Look at what He said right after that.
"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. "
Did you hear that child of God? God is seeking true worshipers to worship Him. God is looking to employ worshipers on His worship team. Remember the word fear in the Hebrew is translated worship. See this translation in Matthew.
"Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. " Matt 4:10
Jesus was quoting from the Hebrew text in Deut: 6:13 - “Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. "
You see, when our King translates the word fear as worship then my friend, so do I. So, within the Kingdom of God the word fear has a different meaning than the world's meaning. God is looking to employ these worshipers, and employment always comes with pay. Understanding this small revelation can grow you up very quickly in the spirit. Why, you may ask? Because you will have to take the Word literally to reap the benefits that the Word promises to the one who worships ‘fears’ the Lord. I think it's valuable to repeat that the king is automatically a Lord (owner), and so the Kingdom of God is the domain of the King. It's where the King has dominance. That King is Jesus the Lord, the Anointed One, and He is the owner. Fear or worship of the Lord comes with a great set of promises, and understanding the fear of the Lord gives us access into these great and precious promises.
8. O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9. O fear (worship) the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. " Ps. 34:8-9
Here is a great promise for those who worship the Lord. There is no want to them that do. You got any wants? Well, list them before the Lord and decree that they be granted based on the Word you just read. Also read it aloud to yourself so that faith can come by hearing. This is calling those things that be not as though they were. This is working out the Kingdom principles in your life. Remember that the God of Israel is seeking such to worship Him. Our enemy has lost his job and his pay as praise and worship leader in heaven itself, and his pay was pretty hefty. His biggest fight is to keep you from becoming self employed in the enterprise of worshiping God, and claiming the promise of pay for your acts of faith!!
"The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant. " Ps. 25:14
I love this verse, but it may not be clear enough for those who are learning this for the first time. So have a look at the Gods Word Translation: “The LORD advises those who fear him. He reveals to them the intent of his promise. " (GTW) Wow, did you read that? You will get advice from the King when you worship Him, and He promises to show you the intent of His promise!! The intent of His promise is His purpose of His promise. That's revelation folks. When you know the purpose for the promise, you have confidence in His promise because you know His will. That's understanding the fear of the Lord in the Kingdom, and growing up spiritually.
"In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. " Prov. 14:26
Strong confidence is with them that fear (worship) the Lord. It's the kind of confidence that is described in the Word that allows for the highest form of faith. In fact the fear of the Lord prepares the heart soil for faith.
14. And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us
15. And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
I John 5:14-15
Confidence means knowing. It means that The Lord has revealed the purpose for His promise to you, and with that information you can ask whatsoever you desire. The fear of the Lord then also gets you a promise of your desires, so what are you waiting for? Now read the Word of the Kingdom and believe this.
"Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. "
