Christian...Is there a revelatory word in youwhich God has given you ?But you have not spoken it out?You have squashed it down...deep down where it cannot get out?You want to speak it out.You want to get it out.You want to shout it out from the roof topsBut you cannot.But dear Christian... It is not because you cannot.It is because you do not.For the fear of men...is greater than the fear of God.Shame on you.But let me tell you something ChristianYour fear is unfounded.Your fear is un-noteworthy.Your fear is based on pride.And was it not pride that caused satan's fall.Your fear of speaking out is basedon the fact that you...have forgotten to Fear God alone.You have forgotten that God is mightyGod is an all consuming fireGods power is all powerful andstretches through heavenlike a robe of majesty.Oh that we could see and fully understandthe power of our Almighty God.So change your gaze sir.Change your gage madam.Turn your head.Focus on Christ instead.For He and He alonehas the power to cast a soul into hell.but He wishes that all should be savedHe desires that all should not perishbut all to come to repentance.And repentance leads to salvation.And when your gaze is set like a flintso fully focused on the face of ChristDear ChristianYou will no longer be afraidAnd when you seek His face aloneYes... HIS FACE ALONEA boldness will fall on you like a floodYou will speak the Word of Godto those who are lost.And many are perishing.So speak out what God has given youlined up with His Wordcorrectly dividing the Word of GodDo not add to itNor take away itThat His boldness will fall on you.This boldness is from Godfor you have finally trusted Godin all things.Now you see...It is Himnot youit is He HimselfThough we are weakHe is strong.He is the Lion of Judah.And He is the lamb of God.He is the radiance of heaven.He is the wrath of God with a sword in His mouthHe is the love of GodHe is all that is HolyHe is the WordHe is the Light that came down from GodHe is our SaviorOur suffering servantwho was humbly nailedupon the cross of our sinThat our sins be crushed completelyAnd our souls be saved.Praise God! Praise God!Alleluia!So KNOW WHO GOD ISOnly Fear Him.He loves you.Repent from sin.That you will not perish.He will speak through you.He will speak to you.He will move you and move in you.And He will guide you.Listen to HIM and follow HIM.Listen... really Listen to Him.He is our good shepherd.He says of His sheep... "My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me."Do not be afraid little sheepFor your God is big.Do not be afraid...of anything on earthor in the skyor in the seaor on the landneither creaturenor man...nor anything which is visibleor invisibleBut God.God alone.Fear God.that you live and not diethat you should declare the wondrousworks of God.Be not ashamed little one.Be not afraid.For our God is Big.Do not fear any man.Let God be true and all men liars... as the scriptures tell us.For man is like a ship upon the seaconstantly correcting his courseconstantly looking for that which he cannot see....but hopes to see.But God on the other hand... knows allsees all and is everywhere at once. He even knows the future.There is nothing hidden from GodThere is absolutely NOTHING hidden from God.God's Word Jesus Christ is the Alpha and Omegathe beginning and the End.Place your trust in Him.Then...Go.Speak.Live.Move.Have your being in Him.In Christ.In Jesus Christ aloneLive...and "Speak".Holy.Holy is the Lamb who was slain for the sins of the World.Holy, Holy, Holy is He.Amen.
