Behold the fear of Yahweh, for he is your wisdom. Gather the people together to hear and learn and fear Yahweh, your God and observe the words of this law. You shall fear (adore) only the LORD your God, and you shall worship Him and swear by His name. You shall not follow other gods, any of the gods of the peoples who surround you, for the LORD your God is in the midst of you and is a jealous God; otherwise, the anger of the LORD your God will be kindled against you.
To serve and worship them and swear by them; and which indeed are no gods, only nominal and fictitious ones. The one you fear or give room to becomes an idol, which is nothing in the world. We ought to have no veneration and adoration given them; but to cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and to bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; as those thoughts too become idols. To fear them is to go after them is to worship them, and this is to depart from the true God and to whore after false deities.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom. To fear the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogance, and the evil way. Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. Adore the Lord your God. Adore Yahweh, and diligently keep his commandments, His testimonies and His Statutes, and it shall be our righteousness. The secret of Yahweh is with them that are in awe of him, and he will show them his covenant. All the paths of Yahweh are mercy and truth unto those who keep His Covenant and Testimonies. The awe of the LORD tends to life: and he that has it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. But His mercy is on them that adore him from generation to generation.
Wake up Church, the Lord God has called on you, you are His servant. You’re Beloved and His first choice, descendants of His good friend Abraham. He pulled you in from all over the world, called you in from every dark corner of the earth, Bought you with the Best Price! Telling you, “You’re my servant, serving on my side. I’ve picked you. I haven’t let you go.”
“Don’t fear” says Yahweh your God. “I’m with you. There’s no need to fear for I’m your God. I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you!” Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for Yahweh your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
Today Jesus says to you “I give you eternal life, and you shall never perish; no one will snatch you out of my hand. My Father, who has given you to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch you out of my Father’s hand. And remember, I and the Father are one.”
