Now, since Sundays, March 7, 14,21, 2021; and then, Saturdays, March 13, 20, 2021; now, today, Saturday and tomorrow Sunday, March 27; 28, 2021, let's continue to look at our topic of choice through which we should be able to get more insight for the growth in our faith and appreciation of Our Heavenly Father.
Of course, I am talking about some things people do not want to consider - first, 'swearing falsely' or 'using the name of the Lord in vain'; and continuing until finished - another 'topic' the Lord has been teaching me on for some time now is the crucial importance of 'such times as these' [2 Timothy 3] through the Holy Bible on - 'the fear of the Lord'.
Continuing both, today, March 27, 2021; and March 28, 2021, since on March 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 2021, we continue with more about 'fearing God'. Examine yourself. Can it be said of you, that these points are true or, false - for you? [2 Corinthians 13:5-10] audio-bible.com/bible.html

OF THIS WORD 'FEAR' AS IT IS TAKEN FOR THE WORD OF GOD. audio-bible.com/bible.html
Let's consider the following.
'Further, such shall be looked to, by God himself cared for, and watched over, that no distress, temptation, or affliction may overcome them and destroy them—“To this man will I look,” saith God, “even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and that trembleth at my word.” It is the same in substance with that in the same prophet, Isaiah, in chapter 57: “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” ' audio-bible.com/bible.html
'Yea, the way to escape dangers foretold, is to hearken to, understand, and fear the Word of God—“He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh, made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses,” and they were secured; but “he that regarded not the word of the Lord, left his servants and his cattle in the field,” and they were destroyed of the hail (Exodus 9:20-25). audio-bible.com/bible.html
[Very, very, important!]
If at any time the sins of a nation or church are discovered and bewailed, it is by them that know and tremble at the word of God. When Ezra heard of the wickedness of his brethren, and had a desire to humble himself before God for the same, who were they that would assist him in that matter, but they that trembled at the word of God?—“Then,” saith he, “were assembled unto me every one that trembled at the words of the God of Israel, because of the transgression of those that had been carried away” (Ezra 9:4, this is why we 'intercede', even today!). They are such also that tremble at the Word that are best able to give counsel in the matters of God, for their judgment best suiteth with his mind and will: “Now therefore,” said he, “let us make a covenant with our God to put away all the (strange) wives, - according to the counsel of my Lord, and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God, and let it be done according to the law” (Ezra 10:3). Now something of the dread and terror of the Word lieth in these things. First. As I have already hinted, from the author of them, they are the words of God. 'Therefore you have Moses and the prophets', when they came to deliver their errand, their message to the people, still saying, “Hear the word of the Lord,” “Thus saith the Lord,” and the like. [Luke 16:29, audio-bible.com/bible.html]
So when Ezekiel was sent to the house of Israel, in their state of religion, thus was he bid to say unto them, “Thus saith the Lord God” ; “Thus saith the Lord God” (Ezekiel 2:4, 3:11). audio-bible.com/bible.html
This is the honour and majesty, then, that God hath put upon his written Word, and thus he hath done even of purpose, that we might make them the rule and directory of our fear, and that we might stand in awe of, and tremble at them. When Habakkuk heard the word of the Lord, his belly trembled, and rottenness entered into his bones. “I trembled in myself,” said he, “that I might rest in the day of trouble” (Habakkuk 3:16).
We shall continue to use our 'reasonable mind' [?] and consider how we react to entities of power, which are only man. Then, if we show such honor, as we should to natural authorities, should we not consider with as much gravity - even more respect for and submission to the One who 'establishes' all 'authority'??
[Proverbs Chapter 3; Matthew 28:18; Romans 13:1] audio-bible.com/bible.html This, is 'true wisdom'.
The word of a human king is as the roaring of a lion; where the word of a king is, there is power. What is it, then, when God, the great God, shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem, whose voice shakes not only the earth, but also heaven? How doth holy David set it forth; “The voice of the Lord is powerful, the voice of the Lord is full of majesty,” &c. (Psa 29).audio-bible.com/bible.html And, one does not 'fear' this??!!
Second. It is a Word that is fearful, and may well be called the fear of the Lord, because of the subject matter of it; to wit, the state of sinners in another world; for that is it unto which the whole Bible bendeth itself, either more immediately or more mediately. All its doctrines, counsels, encouragements, threatenings, and judgments, have a look, one way or other, upon us, with respect to the next world, which will be our last state, because it will be to us a state eternal. This word, this law, these judgments, are they that we shall be disposed of by—“The word that I have spoken,” says Christ, “it shall judge you (and so consequently dispose of you) in the last day” (John 12:48). Now, if we consider that our next state must be eternal, either eternal glory or eternal fire, and that this eternal glory or this eternal fire must be our portion, according as the words of God, revealed in the holy Scriptures, shall determine; who will not but conclude that therefore the words of God are they at which we should tremble, and they by which we should have our fear of God guided and directed, for by them we are taught how to please him in everything? audio-bible.com/bible.html
Third. It is to be called a fearful Word, because of the truth and faithfulness of it. The Scriptures cannot be broken. Here they are called the Scriptures of truth, the true sayings of God, and also the fear of the Lord, for that every jot and tittle thereof is for ever settled in heaven, and stand more steadfast than doth the world—“Heaven and earth,” saith Christ, “shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35). Those, therefore, that are favoured by the Word of God, those are favoured indeed, and that with the favour that no man can turn away; but those that by the word of the Scriptures are condemned, those can no man justify and set quit in the sight of God. Therefore what is bound by the text, is bound, and what is released by the text, is released; also the bond and release is unalterable (Daniel 10:21; Revelation 19:9; Matthew 24:35; Psalm 119:89; John 10:35). This, therefore, calleth upon God’s people to stand more in fear of the Word of God than of all the terrors of the world. There wanteth even in the hearts of God’s people a greater reverence of the Word of God than to this day appeareth among us, and this let me say, that want of reverence of the Word is the ground of all disorders that are in the heart, life, conversation, and in Christian communion. Besides, the want of reverence of the Word layeth men open to the fearful displeasure of God—“Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed; but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded” (Proverbs 13:13).
THE EXPRESSION, “THUS saith the Lord,” is used over four hundred times in the Bible. Additionally, there are many similar expressions used, such as: “It is written,” or “The Word of the Lord came unto me,” or “I, the Lord, have spoken it,” calling attention to specific statements, messages, and lessons from God; it is written.” —Luke 24:45,46. It is as though the prophet, or other spokesman, is telling us: “Now hear this! What I am going to say now, is not merely my opinion, or of my own wisdom, but ‘thus saith the Lord’—it is God speaking; these are his words.” This is a wonderful expression, and full of meaning for Bible students. We have a reverence for God’s Word; and a “Thus saith the Lord” is the end of all controversy with us.
It seems so very simple, doesn’t it? All we have to do is to prove everything by the Word of God. All we have to do is to accept what is in harmony with that Word, and reject that which is not. Let us take this responsibility 'personal', 'seeking' from our Mutual Teacher, the Holy Spirit's help to do this on a perpetual and personal basis, more and more and more. [John 14:26] audio-bible.com/bible.html
Thank you for returning 'in the Spirit' as we proceed to 'learn' what 'the fear of the Lord' really means for each of us, going forward, continually expecting the 'return of the Lord', over the next few Saturdays and Sundays until all is posted, or He actually returns. Amen. Amen.
