The enemys’ weapons: Fear – part 1

Filed under: Spiritual Warfare School — kellporten @ 18:23

What actually is fear?

Fear is the opposite of faith

Faith is trusting in God, while fear is not trusting Him.

Fear is sin

Rom. 14:23
… everything that does not come from faith is sin

Fear is a negative expectation

When we fear, we have a negative expectation. We expect bad things to happen, instead of good things.

Fear is a weapon against us

Fear is one of the enemy’s strongest weapons against us.

How is fear established in us?

Fear is established when we receive the lies of the devil, and start meditating on them.

How does fear affect us?

Fear undermines and limits our lives, physically as well as spiritually

We can become totally paralyzed by fear.

Rom. 8:15
The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”

Hebr. 2:15
and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.

When we allow fear to enter our lives, we allow bad things to happen in our lives

Job 3:25
What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me.

Fear pulls down the protective wall of faith

Faith builds a protective wall around us, around our families, around our churches and so on. Fear pulls down those walls.

Where does fear come from?

Fear does not come from God. The Word of God tells us, over and over again, not to fear.

Rev. 1:17
When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last.

Fear comes from the devil. At the beginning, Adam and Eve felt no fear. But, right after the fall, they were afraid and hid themselves.

Gen. 3:9-10
9 But the LORD God called to the man, “Where are you?”
10 He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”
