The Fear of Death Can be Comforted by Fearing God.


The fear of death can be comforted by fearing God.
.
Is it that straightforward? I would say it is. When we think of ”fear,” we are not talking about being scared. Fearing God has an entirely different meaning.
.
It is not fear in the normal sense of lack of courage, but rather love, respect, and reverence. Undoubtedly, fear of God in this sense can dispel all other fears.
.
Good to know! We can learn about this in a few scriptures. The first, ”the Lord is with us: fear them not” (Num. 14:9).
.
The second, ”It shall be well with them that fear God” (Eccl. 8:12). I can list off several more, but these are a great source.
.
My Uncle and I had an experience when my Grandma and his Mother passed away. I won’t go into detail about our experience, because it’s something sacred I share with him; however, we can both attest that there is life after death.
.
We experienced something that brought peace to both of us that day. I had no sadness or fear that I would never see her again. I know for surity she lives beyond death.
.
Things are not by chance. They are by divine purpose. ”Your Divine Purpose will help you stay in heavenly focus, resulting in spiritual fulfillment and joy. You were born into this life with a unique and divine purpose. Put into motion by a loving Heavenly Father, your divine purpose, when thoughtfully and prayerfully pursued, can be a source of immeasurable joy.” Richard Anderson.
.
The more you come to know God the Father and His Son, the more you will understand your divine purpose and the fear of death will be understood. You will know the purpose of it.
.
The plan of salvation is as real as the skin on your bones. Someone created that skin and bone of yours, just like that someone created the Heavens and the Earth. There is nothing to fear when you decide to fear God. Nothing will matter more than serving Him.
.
We will die and we will return. The plan of salvation teaches us we will be together again for all eternity. My Uncle and I will see my grandma and his Mom again. Just like mothers will see the children they lost in infancy, again. Fear not and Hear Him!
