Fearmongering Vs. Faith — “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
Fear is one of the quickest and strongest emotions to rise up in a person. It can consume. It can overwhelm. Fear is crippling. Fear is death — not merely the fear of death. Recently I posted a commentary by Scott Alan Buss a.k.a. Fire Breathing Christian, along with some introductory comments by me;
I am now sitting down writing this because I am witnessing many who profess with their lips, and the words they write, to be Christians, true Christians and they are showing nothing of late other than signs of fear. Great fear. Hysterical fear. Latching on to fearmongering and not knowing when to let go.
There are men, whom I will not name, but who’s work has appeared here on A Crooked Path in the past who are now resorting to nothing but fearmongering and spreading the fear of WWIII erupting, and they are demonstrating in their words a distinct mired in worldliness doctrine vs. living by and in faith, and the doctrine of the Word of God. I will not be posting any further work by these men and women until I see signs their hysteria and fearmongering leave them and they are restored and increased in the faith of God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the Word of God.
There is NOTHING TO FEAR other than God our Father. Fear disappointing our Lord. Fear not obeying our Lord. But do not fear any man or anything man can do.
Man nor anything man can do is capable of casting your soul into hell, or elevating your spirit and soul to heaven;
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Fearing God Alone
(See also: Matthew 10:26-31)
And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
The inerrant Word of God tell us plainly and clearly how the world will be, the events that will occur in the last days before the Day of the Lord appears.
We are in those last days, but that does not mean we shake, quake, hide, and live our days and nights in fear. Not if we are God’s and He is ours! Not if we are truly renewed of mind and spirit, a new creature, a new man and woman before the Lord throwing off the old man and woman and becoming disciples of Jesus Christ the Lord, the Son of God in FAITH!
Yes, there are many scary things taking place in the world and they increase by the day, by the hour.
So what if World War III breaks out. Does that mean what you professed with your lips of believing in God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and what is in the Holy Bible and your claiming to be Christian is all for naught and cast aside? I hope heaven forbid!
Do not be made afraid by rumors of war, or actual wars breaking out.
Where is your faith? Where is your trust in the Lord?
Do not let the fearmongers get under your skin and into your heart, soul, and mind. For they are nothing more than the choir of the devil singing out a song to distract and remove you from being close to God, Christ, the Holy Spirit and the inerrant living Word of God.
I do not include any article or commentary here on A Crooked Path — NOT ONE ITEM — to cause or create fear in the hearts and minds of those coming here. I present what I do merely as a watchman at the wall. Calling out.
Do not let anything you might find here frighten you or cause you fear if you are a professed believer, a true Christian. I can certainly understand the heathen, the unsaved, the nonbeliever shaking and quaking and soiling themselves with some of the events revealed and told on the pages of A Crooked Path, but no true believer need be fearful, afraid, or shaking and quaking at the evil increasing in this world. The abominations and sin increasing. The violence and brutality increasing equal to multitudes of men and women turning from God and being consumed of the world as they serve Satan and the doctrines of this world, the doctrines of man rather than the Word of God.
Do not be afraid. Of anything. Or anyone. Only fear the Lord. Only fear He who;
And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. — Luke 12:4-7
In these last of the last days? We ought to be rejoicing and happier by the day for it means the hour our Lord returns the second and final time to this earth to fulfill all of Bible prophecy is close at hand and soon, if we have fought the good fight and are found worthy we will be in heaven with our Lord, with God, with the elders and the prophets, and all the heavenly hosts!
in these latter days? Do not let your fear increase! Allow your faithfulness to increase and grow stronger and closer in and to the Lord!
Turn more to the Word of God.
Turn more to prayer.
And turn away from the fearmongers who profess to be holy and godly and reveal their worldliness and fearfulness in the events unfolding before all our eyes.
Let the heathen, the nonbeliever live in fear — and may we live and pray those nonbelieving now will have their cold hearts thawed, the scales removed from their eyes and come out from the dark and into the Light while there is still time.
Let us pray this and pray for increased faith and strength in these last days as the earth has been known since the beginning. Let our hearts not be troubled or afraid! Cast the fearmongers aside and draw close to the Lord our God! This I pray for every chosen person of God on earth in these times.
