Excerpts from the 2008 Shepherd’s Rod: Tremendous Fear

Posted on

Tremendous Fear

This will be a season of unparalleled fear, especially to the unsaved. The greatest fear will be that individuals will not get their desires. It is much more important to receive what we need than what we want. There is a rampant anxiety that is being released in the unredeemed that economic shaking and financial meltdowns will not allow them to achieve all of their personal desires. This can range from jobs and salaries that provide personal hobbies, access to certain people groups and other things promoted by the spirit of this world.

Our society is being driven to achieve position and status that have no lasting spiritual value. Instead, our council is to fix our eyes on things above where Christ is in the eternal realm. The things of this earth are temporary and fading, yet much emphasis is being placed in our society to achieve those very things.

The wicked will not get what they crave and it will cause tremendous anxiety. The wicked desire their way while the righteous desire God’s way! In many aspects the righteous will not get precisely what we expect or desire but we will get God’s way and the things that we need in this next installment of His plans. This will also be a time of great deliverance for Christians suffering from panic attacks and rampant fear.

Much of what will be transpiring today has not yet been seen or heard nor has it entered into the hearts of man. Therefore we cannot desire what we have not yet seen. It will be the literal fulfillment of 1 Corinthians 2:9:

Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

What He has for the righteous is greater than our minds can presently perceive. Conversely, the wicked’s greatest fear will be their lack of ability to support their lifestyle of sin and self-serving pleasure. This is part of the shaking that will be taking place in this nation and around the world.

The righteous will have a focus and attention on Heaven that provides a Godly fear that existed in the life of Christ. We are told in Hebrews 5:7 that:

In the days of His flesh [Jesus] offered up definite, special petitions [for that which He not only wanted but needed] and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him Who was [always] able to save Him [out] from death, and He was heard because of His reverence toward God [His godly fear, His piety, in that He shrank from the horrors of separation from the bright presence of the Father]. Amplified Version

This form of Godly fear or piety identifies the heart of the righteous as exemplified in the Lord’s earthly ministry. We are told in this Scripture that He was heard because He shrank in horror at the mere thought of being separated from the bright presence of His father. The righteous fear that they will do something that would separate them from the unimpeded flow of God’s Spirit.

This also denotes greater access to the manifestation of His presence individually and corporately. In essence, we must become good stewards of God’s grace to walk with Him as Enoch did and obtain the testimony that we are pleasing to Him.
