The Fear of the Lord – Bible Study

This lesson’s focus is to define and illustrate the fear of the LORD. Our late 20th century culture has confused beliefs about “fear”.

The Meaning of the Cross

“For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” (1 Corinthians 2:2)

“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (Galatians 6:14)

“Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.” (Romans 6:4)

How To Overcome Sin

Fixing a Bad Relationship

If you had a bad relationship with somebody it is best to follow these steps:

Usually there are faults on both sides in any relationship problem. One of the keys to being blessed by God in this area is humility. You may consider that the other person is 90% to blame, while your blame is only 10%. Nevertheless, you are not responsible for that person’s attitudes and actions, only your own. There is the possibility you have misunderstood what they said and did. The more you humble yourself in this process the more you can expect God’s blessing.

What to Do if Feeling Guilty Due to Sin

I am a Christian but I have sinned . I feel guilty. What can I do?

If you know what your sin is, and you feel guilty, thank God for it. This is God's way of helping you to see the need for change in your life. The good news is that you can be forgiven by God. Jesus has already paid the price for your sins.

God has made a provision for us to receive forgiveness of our sins. 1 John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

Introduction

I remember this day very well because something supernatural happened to me. I had just started opening my Holy Bible to find where to read. Suddenly, my heart caught an invisible fire. It was as if the room temperature had suddenly been increased. Had the house caught fire? No, there was no visible smoke or fire in the room.

I realised that this was the mighty presence of the Holy Spirit.

Confessions on the Fear of the Lord

BENEFITS

O fear the LORD, you His saints – revere and worship Him! For there is no want to those who truly revere and worship him with godly fear. Ps 34.9

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant. Ps 25.14

The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Ps 34.7

The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy. Ps 147.11

Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who delights greatly in His commandments.

Sanctification

Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto God. WE
BELIEVE it is the glorious provision for every believer in Christ to be made pure in heart and wholly
sanctified, through the operation of the Holy Spirit, by the blood of Jesus and the Word of God –
John 17:15-19; Acts 15:8,9; 1 Thess 4:3,4; Heb 2:11; 1 Thess 5:23,24; Heb 10:16-19; Rom 12:1-2.

Introduction

Holiness and Sanctification

Introduction

In previous lessons we have seen the importance of repentance from dead works and of faith. These two elements are the keys to receiving God’s salvation. We have also seen the importance of casting out demons as a key to wholeness in Christ. This lesson builds on these concepts and looks more specifically at the issue of overcoming sin, sanctification and how to live a holy life.

Repentance from Dead Works

Introduction

In previous lessons, we have seen the wonderful provision that God has made for us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We have seen that this work of God for us was designed to reverse all the effects of man's rebellion against God. All the bad things that we deserve were put on Jesus at the cross, while all the blessings of the Kingdom that belong to Jesus we share in through the cross and the resurrection.
