The Fear of God

Exo 20:19  And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
Exo 20:20  And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not. 

God is come to prove you, to test you. It was required that the children of Israel fear God and keep his commandments and laws. They were to be obedient people of faith. Most would prove themselves unfaithful by fearing the men in the promise land more than they feared the LORD. Fearful people God is not pleased with and they will not be in heaven with him. Have we the fear of God? Do we reverence him and respect him? Do we worship and fear him only? Few in the world fear God and most act as if there is no God. The schools teach humans as gods making up lies of evolution to be taught as truth. They remove God's word and prayer. Even our leaders lie without remorse. Woe to a people who do not fear God; judgement is coming.
1Ti 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
1Ti 4:2  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Rev 22:14  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Rev 22:15  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

The people of God fear him and walk in truth.
