What is it about FEAR that captivates...It can control us, It can paralyse us. It is apart of each of our lives. How do we combat it, What does it really look like, and How can we be SET FREE from it's talons?

I’d like to talk about something today that 99% of us can associatewith...FEAR - People wrestle with FEAR pretty regularly. It is one of thefew strongholds that is fairly universal.Not talking about REVERENCE, Like the NATURAL -Fear of Fire, or Fear of Heights, Fear of Water., etc...or even the FEAR OF GOD,THOSE are NATURAL, WISDOM - REVERENCE for somethingsPOWER, AUTHORITY, ABILITY to BRING DESTRUCTION. That It mustbe respected, there are boundaries of man’s ability to control....and sowe keep distant - FEAR of the Lord is the Beginning of Wisdom...WHY,because I recognize His Power, Authority, Respect it and Reverence it,realizing I cannot CONTROL Him, and could should He desire, destroyme.This is HEALTHY - GOOD and BRINGS WISDOMTHE FEAR I am discussing today, is not at all based in healthyreverence, but in unhealthy, imagined and nonsensical evenOVERWHELMING terror!PANIC - god PAN, Caesarea Philippi - Shepherd god, Cave at entrancehell. Cave 800 ft deep, sacrifices thrown in, people overcome by fear inwoods, terrified of mountain cave - Entrance to the netherlands. -
FEAR - False Evidence Appearing Real - Overwhelmingfear - PANIC -You were PAN AttackedFEAR - Is MISPLACED FAITH!

Terrified of the picture in theGolden Children’s Bible of theDevil tempting Jesus and beingfear struck by it.I Remember reading
slamming it shut
terrified everytime came across work - evil,devil, hell, witchcraft etc. (Ithappened alot) As years progressed, It
intensified, night terrors
for years into adulthood became aregular occurrence to the pointwhere I was afraid of the dark,noises, and being alone.I remember rushing out of thebathroom, because I hatedflushing due to the rumblingsound...I remember sleeping constantlywith my light on...(parentscharged me for) I fearedMonsters under EVEN TV- Remember 
. Abbott & Costello - meet themummy, frankenstein,monsters....I’d PLUG my EARS& walk backward to turn off thetv, then frantically run out of theroom.HOW did this happen....I can’ttell you...natural fears,compounded by our OWNactions. - open door for Fear toget a foothold and eventually afull gripHow did I ALLOW, GIVEOPENING? Certainly as a kid,remember playing with magic 8ball, seances, levitations andouija board games....that allBEFORE I accepted Christ in5th grade....IT STARTEDYOUNG...Friend told me I was Too fearfuland needed to get
