Wrong teaching of the FEAR OF GOD resulted in people being afraid to be close to God.  It was focused on sin consciousness not GOD CONSCIOUSNESS


Prov 1:7 KJV The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.


Ps 111:10 KJV The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.


Prov 15:31 KJV The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise.32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.


Gen 3 she FEARED what she might be missing rather than FEARING that what GOD had said was THE TRUTH. YOU SHALL SURELY DIE.

Our growth will be stunted if we do not correctly understand the FEAR OF THE LORD

2 Tim 3:15-17 NIV Paul’s writing to Timothy

… and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

The correct understanding of the FEAR OF GOD should give me a TEACHABLE SPIRIT. He is THE good FATHER.


Ps 19:7- The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

8 The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart.

The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.

9 The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous.

10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb.

11 By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.
