Fear in something for the sake of fear alone does not cause your heart to really change at all, it just makes you feel maybe comfortable for awhile, and maybe feel that you could be safer for the time being. But fear in this sense always makes for very weak hope. If you found something else that made you feel this comfort, and allowed you to not even have to worry about a hell at all, would you go for it, would you change your mind about Jesus? Probably always. Your hope wouldn’t always be strong enough to stand with the Lord (Jesus) and you’d never claim that you believe in him if this were the case. Fear being the basis of reasoning in this situation is totally different from hope and complete trust being the basis of reasoning for having your heart really with Jesus Christ. Does that not sound worlds better, having this hardcore, true, very real and complete faith? Faith that is strong in your entire heart often rescues you from weak minded thinking. Fear that is strong in your entire heart causes it all the time- That’s simply the issue with thinking and learning to fear Jesus this way. It’s never good in any sense of the word.
Of course you’re supposed to ‘fear the Lord’ by knowing he is strong and compassionate and can take care of you, even when it means it will cause you pain. You should take comfort in knowing his authenticity in your relationship with him, but you’re never supposed to give up all that you are because you believe he will never accept you like that. The truth is, he has to accept you like that in order for you to actually fear him correctly. Jesus is not fake, he is an actual fire burning on forever and he tries to always do this inside of everyone, but it is impossible when we fear so much we can’t trust that he is totally authentic. And what’s the point of that kind of fear? If you find it impossible to take comfort in your relationship with him, then it’s probably impossible to get into heaven. Comfort in the relationship does not mean that it is necessarily easy at all, it just means your heart is well and you really feel fine about what your fate should be after you die because you love and trust him enough and always have enough faith in him.
He always loves you, and he promises to take care of your heart if you promise to always trust him enough. Enough being you feel that deep inside you can actually get into heaven because his relationship with you is so good, and this is the type of faith found in people that can easily change the world. Like Billy Graham, for instance. I’m just taking a guess, because I don’t even know much about him at all, but from what I’ve heard and from some of the things he’s said, I know his has a genuine part of him always genuinely trusting in the very genuine heart of Jesus Christ. Jesus won’t ever change, he just needs us to trust him enough to be able to actually make some difference in our hearts. He is sweet and trusting, just as we should always be with him. He is completely perfect in every way, and he can rock the world with people who believe in him truly like I do, and he can always change the world with people like me. I’m not really afraid of anything anymore as I once always was, and it’s because I trust him and fear him perfectly, and that’s all. I love you all, and I feel strongly and deeply passionate about anyone who is willing to listen and attempt to understand all that I say, and that’s all I really need to do- Jesus will always take care of the rest. That’s all for now. =)
