H. Jackson Browne
Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own.


The Lord is saying: How often have I told you that you need not fear. Now I am telling you again. Fear always holds a lie. The truth never causes fear. But you have been afraid to face the truth. The truth will bring light and peace. every time and will be a way of escape for it will always set free and never entangle. Remember "I am the Way, the Truth and the Light. He who follows after me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.

When Adam and Eve were created they were created in God's image to rule over all the earth, with the same nature that He had, love. Satan wants to rule, and the only way he can do it is to get man to use their authority but in a twisted way from how God intended. Fear is in direct opposition to love. Perfect love casts out all fear. Fear cannot live where love is. It is as opposite to love as light is to dark. Fear causes us to rule in a perverted way. Religion that is not of God, is formed by the fear that the people will get out of hand if given freedom and that they need to be controlled. The fruit of that fear comes out of the mouth via words that would strike fear into the hearts of the hearers. This is how the law worked, and it did exactly what the word said it would do,

Romans 7, 9. When the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Whenever the law is preached, however subtly, The harvest of sin is going to come.
Preach sin consciousness and you will produce sin. Preach righteousness consciousness, you will produce righteousness.

When the true nature of the God's sheep is acknowledged, and a trust in the life of God in them is nurtured and a letting go, in faith, of the people into the capable hand's of the Husbandman of their souls, the fruit of righteousness will seen in the congregation, maybe slowly, but the trend will be upwards..

Fear is from satan, not from God. God is pure love and no fear can abide in that. However when the truth is taught in love, effortless change comes about in those who receive it and keep it in their hearts.

Luke 1. 74, 75 says "That He would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve Him without fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life"
