"Jehovah is a Killer and a Preserver of life,
A Bringer down to She'ol, and He brings up.
Jehovah is an Impoverisher and an Enricher,
An Abaser, also an Exalter"
- 1 Samuel 2:6-7

"The Lord killeth, and maketh alive:
he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up.
The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich:
he bringeth low, and lifteth up."
- 1 Samuel 2:6-7

“Yahweh kills, and he gives life.
He makes people go down to the grave,
and he raises them up again.
Yahweh causes poverty and grants wealth.
He humbles people; he also promotes them."
- 1 Samuel 2:6-7

"The Lord brings death and makes alive;
he brings down to the grave and raises up.
The Lord sends poverty and wealth;
he humbles and he exalts."
- 1 Samuel 2:6-7

"The Lord killeth and maketh alive:
bringeth down to the grave and raiseth up.
The Lord maketh poor and maketh rich:
bringeth low, and exalteth."
- 1 Samuel 2:6-7

"Do not call conspiracy
everything this people calls a conspiracy;
do not fear what they fear,
and do not dread it.
The Lord Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy,
he is the one you are to fear,
he is the one you are to dread
."
Isaiah 8:12-13 (New International Version)

"The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom,
And knowledge of the Most Holy One is understanding."
Proverbs 9:10

The foolish one says in his heart:
“There is no Jehovah.”
Psalm 53:01

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God, and keep his commandments:
for this is the whole duty of man.
Ecclesiastes 12:13

I think "fear" of God is in being in awe of Him, not terrified of Him as some interpret the idea. My pastor said recently that we should never become so complacent in our relationship with God that we take Him for granted. Makes sense to me.

my thoughts exactly.
i agree 100%.

my "fear of god" is full of respect, admiration, awe, and acknowledgement of his absolute and ultimate power to control, create and destroy.
i can't even make a decent cup of coffee smirk

No one is like you, O Jehovah.
You are great, and your name is great and mighty.
Who should not fear you, O King of the nations, for it is fitting;
Because among all the wise ones of the nations and among all their kingdoms,
There is no one at all like you.
They are all unreasoning and stupid.

But Jehovah is truly God.
He is the living God and the eternal King.
Because of his indignation the earth will quake,
And no nations will endure his denunciation.
This is what you should say to them:
“The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth
Will perish from the earth and from under these heavens.”
He is the Maker of the earth by his power,
The One who established the productive land by his wisdom
And who stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
When he makes his voice heard,
The waters in the heavens are in turmoil,
And he causes clouds to ascend from the ends of the earth.
He makes lightning for the rain,
And he brings the wind out of his storehouses.
Every man acts unreasonably and without knowledge.

JEREMIAH 10

sometimes… when i am feeling at my worse.
i hate life/god.
when i cannot find it in my heart to accept my fate,
i resent life/god.
when i suffer sudden setbacks,
i curse life/god.


He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
1 JOHN 4

some days, i am just not feeling the love.
some days, the divine comedy does not make me laugh.

even though i am commanded, by moses, to do so…
You must love Jehovah your God with all your heart and all your soul and all your strength. These words that I am commanding you today must be on your heart, and you must inculcate them in your sons and speak of them when you sit in your house and when you walk on the road and when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as a reminder on your hand, and they must be like a headband on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
DEUTERONOMY 6

it is very difficult to love god sometimes.
at those times, all i have left is my fear of god.
that fear is the last barrier between me and chaos and death.
at that point, i must exercise my free will,
before i lose all inhibition and control.

i must resist temptation, rebuke anger, reject resentment,
and recommit to religion...
or reject god and revert to my previous personality.

"Dost thou still retain thine integrity?
Curse God, and die."

Book of Job
Chapter 2


i fight my way back from that spiritual wasteland,
familiar but barren territory, it is a one~way dead~end i refuse to revisit.
i cannot retreat!

i resolve to rebuild my faith yet again from the foundation up.
that is when i need god and his love and his reproof more than ever.

i choose to embrace his grace.
i accept his authority.
i obey his orders.
i follow his fiats.
i defer to his discipline.

things immediately begin to improve.
it is like a science.
i get the exact same positive results every time without fail.

taking advice from the bible has only improved my life.
following christ and the word of god has never put me in a ditch.

the christ taught:
Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
A student is not above his teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.

LUKE 6

my teacher is jesus.
he teaches me to love god.
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment."
MARK 12

just as it is hard to see light in the shadow of pain.
but if you relax and give time to adjust, you can see,
even in the dimmest dark.

Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
PSALM 2

i would rather not live in fear, but sometimes, that is all i have left.

if i am already afraid, i might as well be frightened of something worthy of my fear, like the creator of the universe.

"The first step toward enlightenment is disillusionment."

Fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul;
but rather fear Him that is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

- Matthew 10


Each one should build with care.
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
If anyone builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw,
their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light.
It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.
If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward.
If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved,
even though only as one escaping through the flames.

- 1 Corinthians 3


Jesus Christ said, "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock."
- Matthew 7
