Run To, Not From

The strongest, the most powerful man will fear.

There are two things in this life that can bring unmitigated, unrelenting fear into the life of every single person ever born, the Lord God Almighty, and pure evil, the evil that only devils can bring. This is the fear that all those who will stand at the Great White Throne of Judgement will know, it is the terror that will shake them to their soul, for they will finally realize that all hope is gone.

No matter the amount of time they have spent in hell, that moment will not compare with anything they have ever experienced, and it will never go away.

This great trembling and shaking was known to all those whom were told “Fear not” in the Scriptures, it is a paralyzing fear that knows no escape. No man can stand in the presence of the Lord God, He who made us knows us best, He knows every part of us, and it is a blessing when He allows this great fear to fall upon us. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10) With this epitome of fear, if one is seeking the face of God (Psalm 27:8) comes great humility, and humility in the knowledge of the Sovereignty of the Most High is perhaps the only, if not the best way, to cast pride far from us.

That strong man, whether it be in deed or in his mind, will cower in that moment of fear, all strength will leave him, and if he is so blessed, he will seek the Lord even more in those times. “Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.” (Psalm 17:8) He who allows this terror, who brings this paralytic fear upon us, is the One we are to run to, a concept that is completely foreign to those who do not call Him Lord, for it is in out nature to flee from that which frightens us. The man who the Holy Spirit used to pen Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble,” is the same man who knew this fear, not the fear of what man could do to him, (Psalm 118:6) but the terrible fear of the Lord. Moses knew this fear as he hid in the cleft of the rock as the Lord passed by, John knew it when he turned around and saw the visage of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I believe mental institutions and some of those who live on the streets have known the momentary fear we speak of here and did not turn to the Most High when it came upon them, these are those that were, and still are in some cases, tormented by these fallen angels called devils.

To leave pride and follow the path of humility and obedience to the Most High is, when allowed by the Lord towards His children, to invite, as it were, the attention of these demonic spirits, not intentionally of course, but it is part of what happens to us in this life if we have been crucified with Christ. All that has been written here is contrary to nearly everything that is preached from the pulpits today, evil is an action that wicked men do, not the manifestation of demonic activity, and when it is seen as such, it is feared by those that sit in the pews only when it affects them personally, they do not seek the Lord in these times.

“The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.” (Prov. 8:13) This evil that we speak of here cannot be seen, only experienced through the senses, if it ever arrives in your life, you will know it, and hopefully you will run to the One who is allowing it.
