13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil. I hate pride, arrogance, the evil way, and deceitfulness.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and depart from evil. [The beginning of the fear of God is to depart from evil.]
6 By mercy and truth iniquity [sin] is purged [from the heart], and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. [What truth purges evil to make you free of sin?—the word of truth that you hear spoken to you by the Lord. If you continue in my word, you are true disciples; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:31-32. In what word are you to continue or abide and obey?—the word that is within your heart to hear and obey, Rom 10:8, Deu 30:11-15. The beginning of the fear of God is to depart from evil.]
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
11 The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
18 But the eye of the LORD is upon those who fear him, upon those who hope in his mercy,
28 And to man he said, 'Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.'"
|Matthew 10:27-28 |
27 What I tell you in darkness, speak that in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach that upon the housetops. [What you were past taught by Him in darkness, (still sinning), can be spoken later if you are in the light; as George Fox said, "Let all...consider, before they utter, that the light is up." To preach righteously is to speak only what you first hear Him speak immediately prior to your speaking.]
28 And do not fear those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "No soul is immortal apart from me." There is no permanent soul of man, unless that man unites in union with Christ and the Father; those who fail to do so while on earth, will lose their soul. The beginning of the fear of God is to depart from evil. From the Word of the Lord within: "Fear God and give Him the glory. To fear is to depart from evil."]
