FEAR the LORD verses


Hebrews 11:7

King James Version

7 By faith Noah, being warned of God 

of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, 

prepared an ark to the saving of his house; 

by the which he condemned the world, 

and became heir of the righteousness 

which is by faith.

Why must we fear the LORD?

Why is it foolish not to?

JESUS declared:

Matthew 10:28

King James Version

28 And fear not them which kill the body, 

but are not able to kill the soul

but rather fear him which is able to destroy 

both soul and body in hell.

4 And I say unto you my friends, 

Be not afraid of them that kill the body, 

and after that have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: 

Fear him, which after he hath killed 

hath power to cast into hell; 

yea, I say unto you, 

Fear him.

Vengeance belongeth unto me, 

I will recompense, 

saith the Lord

And again

The Lord shall judge his people.

31 It is a fearful thing 

to fall into the hands of the living God.
