Quote from: DiscipleWhomJesusLoves on September 21, 2011, 05:30:08 amPersonally, I do not think so.My pastor talked about the verse in Job you mentioned. He said that what has been taught abt that verse is unfortunate becos the teaching has only put more fear in people. All teaching should set people free, not put them in more bondage.It's bad enough that you already fear something. And for someone to tell you that what you fear will happen only makes things worse--you don't just fear your fear, you fear fearing itself!Note that in Job's case, he did not have a Mediator. You do, and His name is Jesus. And at the cross, Jesus' blood washed away every one of your sins of fear.
Quote from: lovesblessing on September 24, 2011, 03:04:13 pmI have been having to deal with some problems in my body the last few weeks and in talking with my best friend I said something about it being scary.....she said, fear is false evidence appearing real....it helped! F---FalseE---EvidenceA---AppearingR---Real That is what symptons are, false evidence appearing real. They are the devil screaming at his loudest to get our attention OFF of Jesus and back on ourselves. To get our focus OFF of Jesus and His perfect finished work at the cross....that because of what Jesus did for us, because He loves us so much, no matter what the symptons and feelings are, this is truth.....by HIS stripes we ARE healed already. God is not a liar, what Jesus did was so perfect, that God was able to raise Him from the dead and all of our sins, diseases and lack was put from us as far as the east is from the west when we accepted Jesus as our Saviour. That is God's truth, no matter what it looks like, feels like or seems, what Jesus did is the answer to everything. Keeping our focus on Jesus and His goodness and grace and His love for us and all that He is and what we are because we are now IN HIM, is the answer. The Holy Spirit in me has been telling me to keep confessing that Jesus is my righteousness, that I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, over and over.....and you know, it helps alot! Because it is all about Jesus and His love for me.....it is His faith that I live by now.
