The Only Kind of Fear that Creates Winners
The BIG WHY for the Fear of the LordThe Fear of the Lord creates a supernatural energy, supernatural vision,ability and even supernatural expectation. The Fear of the Lord isactually the effect of the Presence of God. It empowers and liberates atthe appropriate times and constrains and retains when such actions areconcomitant with wisdom. Here are Five By-Products of the Fear ofGod:Unity 1Sa 11:7 And he took a yoke of oxen, and hewed them inpieces, and sent [them] throughout all the coasts of Israel by the hands ofmessengers, saying, Whosoever cometh not forth after Saul and afterSamuel, so shall it be done unto his oxen. And the fear of the LORD fellon the people, and they came out with one consent.Prosperity 2Ch 14:14 And they smote all the cities round about Gerar;for the fear of the LORD came upon them: and they spoiled all the cities;for there was exceeding much spoil in them.Security 2Ch 17:10 And the fear of the LORD fell upon all thekingdoms of the lands that [were] round about Judah, so that they madeno war against Jehoshaphat.Activity/Plan 2Ch 19:7 Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD beupon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD ourGod, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.Purifier 2Ch 19:9 And he charged them, saying, Thus shall ye do inthe fear of the LORD, faithfully, and with a perfect heart.

FOTL requires ahost individual, then and only then can it function as intended. In thecase of Moses FOTL: Extricated the people out of bondage Activated favor among the nations Activated favor with God Activated favor with man Initiated the great Transfer of Wealth Caused the people to obey
