Are you afraid of the dark? You should be. There are things in the darkness that desire to kill you. Darkness overshadows the light and drains the life out of its subjects. You may have heard that heaven and God is full of light. The reason for this is simple. Light gives life. Light gives vision. Light gives direction.
Hell is full of darkness. Hell impedes vision. Hell creates confusion. Hell is in direct opposition to light. Hell is for those who love darkness.
Before you run from this blog understand that darkness has power and the fear of the Lord is wisdom. I said, what may seem strange to some that one should be afraid of the dark and you may say, but the Bible says fear not.
Unfounded fear should never be a Christian’s disposition. Unfounded fear is fear that God will abandon and forsake you. Unfounded fear is man’s ability to separate you from God. Unfounded fear is the devils ability to overcome the Holy Spirit.
Founded fear should be a Christian’s disposition. Fearing God’s ability to cast your soul into hell. Fearing God’s wrath to those who disobey and curse him in unbelief and action. Fearing God is just plain smart. He alone has the ability to save you.
The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous (Psalm 19:9).
Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
