D. BECAUSE IT IS THE CORE OF THE GREAT COMMISSION
Revelation 14:6-7
"Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth--to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, "Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the
heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water."

V. HOW DO WE OBTAIN FEAR OF GOD?
A. Know what NOT to fear (if you are a believer)
Psalm 23
..."I will fear no evil"
1 Peter 3:14
But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. "Do not fear what they fear (the world); do not be frightened."
1 John 4:18 (Is the only Scripture which seems to imply we do NOT need to fear God)
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment."
[Perfect love casts out the fear of punishment for the believer. But note it does not say perfect love casts out the fear of God. To interpret this passage in this manner would be to obliterate and contradict hundreds of other passages which command the fear of God.]

B. TEACHING
"Raise up a child in the ways of the Lord, and when he is old he will not depart therefrom."
"Faith cometh by hearing"

C. SEARCHING DILIGENTLY
Proverbs 2:1-5*
1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding,
3 and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.
*Fear of God is not something negative, but rather the treasure itself -- the gold and silver.
To obtain the gold and silver in King Solomon's mines 4,000 years ago, there was not the modern equipment of today. One had to sweat and use a pick axe and search diligently to obtain it.

D. PRAYER
"Some things only come by prayer and fasting"

IV. CONCLUSION
So my question for you is do you fear God or 'extinguish fear' as Pastor Greg Kirskey is teaching you?

Do you think you have a reason to fear him now? Do you know how to begin getting there?

Finally do you "Love to Fear God"

Regarding the Olympics we have all heard the saying: "Let the Games begin!"

I say let the Fear of God begin. And let it begin with me!

I have confronted Greg Kirksey directly and he refuses correction and refuses to repent before the congregation for this
false teaching. I pray that you will confront him!

He will be exposed nationally!

Sincerely in Christ,

Dear James

many thanks for the e-mails.

Funny that the first thing I remember my wife bringing up constantly when I became a Christian (she had accepted Jesus as Saviour at a very early age) was the loss of 'fear of the Lord' from the church.

She used to get it in the neck from church leaders before I knew enough to support her from Scripture.

We've both come a long way since then!

The non-answers of the deceived ('don't bother me with facts or Scripture, my mind is made up'!) are always unchanged, no matter what the deception.
