 22 Do you not fear me?" says the Lord. "Will you not tremble at my presence,3 who has placed the sand as the boundary of the sea by a perpetual decree, so that it cannot pass it? And though its waves toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it.

3 Christendom has no fear of God. The Fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate. Proverbs 8:13. Whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him. Acts 10:35. Woe to those who call themselves Christians who have no fear of God; who continue to sin throughout their lives, thinking Christ is their excuse to sin; who have no fear of God's wrath and punishment for continuing to sin; who fear those who kill the body, but do not fear him who can destroy the body and soul, casting them into Hell. It is not too late to wake up. Woe to those who think and brag that they have a free pass to heaven just by believing while still sinning. From the Word of the Lord within: "Your covenant with death will be removed."

"Believing" is not salvation, as Paul and Peter repeatedly emphasize writing to churches of believers:

  1. now is our salvation nearer than when we first believed, Rom 13:11
  2. continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, Phil 2:12
  3. For we are saved by hope; but hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he has already seen? But if we hope for that we do not yet see, then we wait for it [salvation] with patient endurance. Rom 8:24-25
  4. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. 1 Thes 5:8
  5. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1 Cor 1:18
    (While in the inward cross of self-denial, you will see the sin slowly disappear from your life until you are free of sin.)
  6. godly sorrow produces repentance that leads to salvation, 2 Cor 7:10
  7. do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by whom you are sealed unto the day of redemption [future happening]. Eph 4:30
    (Paul is speaking to believers in the church who have not yet been redeemed, which is salvation.)
  8. For we are the sweet aroma of Christ unto God, to those who are being saved. 2 Cor 2:15
  9. we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold firm the beginning of our confidence to the end. Heb 3:14
  10. For you need endurance in order to do God’s will, so that after you may receive the promise. Heb 10:36
  11. we desire that every one of you show the same diligence in realizing the full assurance of hope to the end.
    So that you are not slothful, but followers of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Heb 6:11-12
  12. Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
    In that greatly rejoice though it is necessary to suffer a few griefs through various trials,
    so that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes,
    though it is tried with fire, might result in praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
    Though you have not seen him, you love him; though you do not see him now,
    but believe in him, you rejoice with joy that is unspeakable and full of glory,
    Receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls. 1 Pet 1:5-9
  13. As newborn babies, desire the sincere milk of the word, so that you may grow up to salvation, 1 Pet 2:2
