I’d like to talk about something today that 99% of us can associate with...FEAR - People wrestle with FEAR pretty regularly. It is one of the few 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 somethings POWER, AUTHORITY, ABILITY to BRING DESTRUCTION. That It must be respected, there are boundaries of man’s ability to control....and so we 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, destroy me. This is HEALTHY - GOOD and BRINGS WISDOM THE FEAR I am discussing today, is not at all based in healthy reverence, but in unhealthy, imagined and nonsensical even OVERWHELMING terror! PANIC - god PAN, Caesarea Philippi - Shepherd god, Cave at entrance hell. Cave 800 ft deep, sacrifices thrown in, people overcome by fear in woods, terrified of mountain cave - Entrance to the netherlands. -
FEAR - False Evidence Appearing Real - Overwhelming fear - PANIC You were PAN Attacked FEAR - Is MISPLACED FAITH! People wrestle with FEAR Unknown/ future/ failure Pain/Suffering/Death losing freedom/rights/position trials/tribulations Persecution/ridicule/rejection disappointment/loneliness loss of loved ones Its time to RECLAIM our FAITH and appropriate it in CHRIST! As a KID I was overwhelmed by FEAR in different areas, I was Afraid of - Loud Noises, rumbles -toilet - Dark - slept w/lights on - to dream - evil, horrifying From a young age, FEAR was something I was subject to...It literal was a taskmaster in my life. My earliest experience- seeing devils face in dream Terrified of the picture in the Golden Children’s Bible of the Devil tempting Jesus and being fear struck by it.
I remember rushing out of the bathroom, because I hated flushing due to the rumbling sound... I remember sleeping constantly with my light on...(parents charged me for) I feared Monsters under EVEN TV- Remember CREATURE FEATURE.... Abbott & Costello - meet the mummy, frankenstein, monsters....I’d PLUG my EARS & walk backward to turn off the tv, then frantically run out of the room. HOW did this happen....I can’t tell you...natural fears, compounded by our OWN actions. - open door for Fear to get a foothold and eventually a full grip How did I ALLOW, GIVE OPENING? Certainly as a kid, remember playing with magic 8 ball, seances, levitations and ouija board games....that all BEFORE I accepted Christ in 5th grade....IT STARTED YOUNG...
- The FOG - then once camping with my mother...sitting on the banks of a river, fog rolled in..I was petrified and ran to the trailer Instead of DESENSITIZING myself to fear - I FED IT!!! 1. As a KID - CHICK Tracts, Comic Books - full color, Christian - intrigued by demons 2. played with ouija boards, did seances, levitation 3. Even Christian Books that were about occult deliverance It even affected the way I raised my kids... At one point I was involved in several ministries and was inundated from several angles - I became FEARFUL of the schools ability to destroy my children....PULLED SON OUT OF Public School...put in a CHRISTIAN one...But IT WAS HORRIBLE experience. WHY? God does not bless anything done in fear...not even good works....Heb 11:6 I OPERATED IN FEAR not FAITH...token CHRISTIAN thing to do....BUT NOT FAITH....as experience got worse...God rebuked and corrected MY heart! He gave me scripture to secure me as I put them back in public school... DOING CHRISTIAN THINGS DOES NOT hinder fear - that’s just CONFORMING ..BUT THAT is NOT BEING TRANSFORMED AND SET FREE...
Friend told me I was Too fearful and needed to get DESENSITIZED...so we’d have Fear fights...jump out of bushes, refrigerators, from I Remember reading bible and slamming it shut terrified every under beds....and she told me I should watch more scary time came across work - evil, movies... devil, hell, witchcraft etc. (It - Poltergeist, Amityville Horror happened alot) - - American Werewolf in London, - funny.... As years progressed, It coming home from work - dog intensified, night terrors for crossed path....envisioned it years into adulthood became a attacking through my windsheild regular occurrence to the point where I was afraid of the dark, noises, and being alone.
Years passed by and things seem to intensify as I was a young mom....to the point where every October as the commercials were of Freddy CRUEGER and JASON and horror for TV - I literally felt attacked and my flesh. pounced on by the out of the TV..demons leaping Then - My husband had to work a night shift project in East NY for 18months.... I hated it....ALONE - DARK Lights on in whole house... BEACON in the NIGHT - for the WRONG REASONS... Got cornered me...heard in spirit - NEED to Deal a DEATH BLOW to SPIRIT OF FEAR.... I remember have dreams were demons, chased, caught and devoured me.....
sooo bad.... started praying....grabbed for the door...COULD HEAR a DEMON Taunt - ‘GO AHEAD I”M ready to POUNCE YOU’.... I Grabbed the door & shouted: JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! POOF! (it was - GONE) Never again!!!! DO YOU KNOW - a few years later....One night during a terrible spring Thunderstorm, My boys woke up afraid - John went to the couch...boys stayed in my bed... heard some scratching on the open screens....DARN CAT - too tired....- no MEOW... Heard the LORD it’s not the cat...Got up, hallway - kid in baseball cap...breaking in... POUNDED FLOOR AND WALLS - HOW DARE YOU - GET OUT OF HERE!!!!
1.PRAYING through & in DREAMS rebuking demons - 1st GOD SET ME UP - to prove to few times - laughed -demons me I’ve been set free! chased, eventually they ran I am continually having to away - NEVER AGAIN activate my FAITH in the face of FEAR 2.GROUNDED my prayers on SCRIPTURE - SWEET SLEEP YOU SEE, WHEN We start to proverbs, Psalm - Daniel Grasp WHO GOD IS, in comparison to our FEARS they 3.ACTIONS slowly started are conquered, dispersed, shutting off lights....children in shattered own beds.... Sleeping alone in DARK! YAY! FEAR Separates us from HIM From TRUTH - From LIGHT - IT I was SUCCEEDING - things is darkness were changing.... BLINDING, PARALYZING, DESTROYING US THEN WHEN ALL the LIGHTS were finally OUT - door closed....I woke and needed to go to the bathroom...Suddenly I was TERRIFIED - I had to GO

In Caesarea Philippi - Mt. 16:13-18 Jesus asked disciples - Who do you say that I am? Peter rightly and boldly proclaimed, “You are the Christ(Messiah) the Son of the Living God.” Jesus REsponded, right there near the Rocks and caves of PAN “Blessed are You, flesh and blood didnt reveal this by My Father in heaven...On this Rock I will
build my church and the forces of hell (hades, netherworld) will not overpower it!” With that revelation, Jesus stomped on FEAR! on PAN! on the DEVIL! Hebrews 2:14-15 “ … through death [Jesus] destroyed the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and freed those who through fear of death had been subject to slavery all their life.”
Romans 8:31-39 What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against Us?... WHO can separate us from the love of Christ? Can aﬄiction, or anguish or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?... No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who
nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to
loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels
