    Fear Him Who Is Able To Destroy Both Soul And Body In Hell

    27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 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. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. —Matthew 10:27-29 (KJV)

    The biblical concept of "fear and trembling" in connection with Almighty God has lost some of it's popularity today due to a number of reasons:
    • Too many people prefer hearing about God's love, longsuffering, and mercy.
    • When pointing out to others about God's righteous indignation, holiness, and justice, some say "My God isn't like that!"
    • The emphasis on God's love and mercy among many today is probably a reaction to the "hell, fire, and brimstone" preaching of another generation.
    Has the previous course reversed and is now headed toward the other direction:
    • Where there is no concept of "fear and trembling" as it relates to Christians?
    • Is this why many Christians are apathetic in their service to God?
    • Have Christians forgotten to Whom we should fear if we are negligent in our service?
    God is holy, true, just, merciful, and faithful. His perfect love and justice for us meet at the cross where the Lamb of God paid for the sins of the world.

    5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. —John 14:5-7 (KJV)
