Pt. 1 Lesson 14 – That, what I was afraid of – by Oleg Remez, translated by Irina Narivonchik
Today we have a very interesting lesson, be attentive—the name is very simple, but the lesson itself is meaty. The name of today's lesson is “that, what I was afraid of” in other words, the subject of today's lesson is Fear. The Fear that is very familiar to people. And of course, Fear is familiar not only to non-christians. When I hear from christians of anything to do with fear, I instantly understand their spiritual level. This is why today I will talk to you specifically about Fear in light of scriptures, and we will take an in-depth look at what it is, where it came from, and why we are talking about it at all.
We will begin with Genesis. Right? Where else could we start from..? why do we start with Genesis and not with the book of numbers or some other book? Because in Genesis chapters 1 & 2 is written God's perfect will. You hear? The perfect, unchangeable will of God. To see that it is perfect and unchangeable, you could take Genesis Chapters 1 & 2, and compare it with the last chapter of Revelations—and you will see that same Garden of Eden, and that same tree of life. Therefore, the perfect will of God that is written in Genesis 1 & 2 is what was, what Is, what will be and, despite anything, what we will come to. This is why we look at this as not only for Adam, but as for Every Person—especially since in the last Adam we have been returned to the Garden of Eden. So let's look at the Garden of Eden. Let's look at Genesis chapters 1 & 2—to start with.
What do we see in Genesis chapters 1 & 2? I would describe this with the words written in the new testament: Peace on earth, goodwill to men. Love all around. Everything is God and everything is Love. In other words, nothing, not even a little tiny bit of anything by which fear could manifest. This speaks of something? Of course it does! You hear? Nothing, not even the tiniest speck of fear. You know, everything was love to such an extent that Adam didn't even fear God. There was nothing to fear. You hear? Nothing, absolutely nothing. I am revealing to you the perfect will of God. I am not revealing to you simply a …............ chapters 1 & 2, only for Adam. No, I am opening up the perfect will of God, I am opening up that what you were created for, Always. ALWAYS.
Now lets transition to Genesis chapter 3—because Genesis chapter 3 has a Huge difference from Genesis chapters 1 & 2—and I would recommend never to mix them up. Genesis chapters 1 & 2 is the perfect will of God, it is about how God affirmed, about what God planned, and, how it says inEcclesiastes (1:9) That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Therefore, let's not make anything up—I understand that christians have a good imagination, but there is Genesis chapters 1 & 2, and Jesus is the Last Adam. Let's not confuse anything. He is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, that is why we begin with Genesis chapter 1 & 2, and let's go to chapter 3.
I will begin with events tied with the one who appeared on earth illegally. Genesis 3 1 Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’” 4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. These events that I just read are familiar to you, as events of falling into sin. You know, that specifically after these events—to earth came Death, Curse, and Fear. Specifically after these events. Not prior to these events. Specifically after these events, earth began to experience events that are not, have nothing to do with, and will never be the perfect will of God. Why christians take them and compare themselves with them, is really amazing. The events that began to evolve after the event in chapter 3, are events that are related to curses. Specifically, to Death and Fear.
Adam experienced being born again. “brother Oleg, but How could he?” please understand, that being born again is also being born from life into death. This is also being born again, but out of life into death. That's it. Now, in the spirit of Adam was Death. This was a different person—a New Creation. Previously non-existent. Except this creation now lived by Fear. Inside of him now was not what was inside previously. You cannot compare yourself with him, match yourself with him, and look at yourself with his eyes. This is categorically taboo.
In Genesis chapter 3 begins an account of events which you can't discount to review that which doesn't belong to you. And whom you are NOT. And what is not yours. This is why I ask you to consider—beginning with Genesis chapter 3, on earth appeared Death, Curse and Fear. That's it. Adam was born again from life into death. Let's continue reading, but now about a New Creation. See, the picture has now changed. This is a different person. This is not the Adam which you knew 15 minutes ago. This is a different person. Naturally, if he is a different person, his life now unfolds differently. And we read differently--7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, look, a completely different disposition. Their eyes were opened on a different matter. Its not like their eyes were opened—they received a revelation. No. the process now started going backwards. If before, the process was from life to life, from glory to glory, from faith to faith—then now the process was reversed—from death to death. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. Imagine—your clothes, and mine as well—is a witness, a sign of sin. It always tells you: “Adam Sinned”. OK. and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. 8 And they heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. 9 Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 So he said, “I heard Your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; and I hid myself.” The life of a person, already filled with strange and previously unknown experience, brought him to what? He Hid. Adam began to experience some new and previously unknown feeling—in this case, we know from scriptures this feeling as what? As Fear. Tell me, did Adam have fear prior to him sinning? No. you hear?
I always try to draw a line, so that christians would formulate a certain concept in time-space. That there is time Before sin, please don't confuse it with the time After sin. The time before sin is the time of the perfect will of God—this is time where everything is Love and everything is God. This is the perfect will of God. God will not be leading you to something else and directing you to something new. That what has been, will be again. So Genesis chapters 1 & 2 is the Perfect Will of God, and the events beginning from chapter 3, are events where Fear, Curse and death always have place. This is why we cannot look at all consecutive events not taking into account these factors. We can't do this, these factors were taken into account by God in his conversations with people. That means we need to take these factors into account. Christians don't take these factors into account, they read—for example, in the old testament, the word Fear is frequently seen, more than 130 times—I counted everything, don't worry—more than 130 times. But wherever you encounter it, it always has something to do with specifically the not born again of the spirit. This speaks about something? Of course it does. To whom? To those born again of the spirit. This is why, in the old testament, when God was communicating with people, he used the word 'Fear' because otherwise it would have been impossible to hold them. Nothing was holding them back. Their flesh wasn't holding them, and what was in their spirit—that was Fear. This is why in the old testament, the word 'fear' was used as a word of instruction, of control, to hold back-- “FEAR the Lord your God” there was no other way to hold the people. If we now have this quality LOVE, and this quality is higher than any other qualities, then you could say that we, right now obey God because we Love him. Families are supposed to be founded on Love, and not on fear. We have a different quality which holds us back from certain actions. In the old testament, in people not born again of the spirit, this was not so—you couldn't hold them back any other way. This is why in the old testament the word fear is used as a word which Stops. To use this word today is Taboo, because you didn't receive a spirit of Fear—look, you are beginning to understand this. You didn't accept it, and you... I am speaking a lot on Faith.... Don't have it. We agree—if two agree, they will have anything they ask for.
OK, moving on. Into the life of Man came new experiences, previously unknown experiences, specifically—fear. In other words, everything sharply started to change. Words changed, Actions changed, the direction of thoughts of course began to change. 11 And He said, God said “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” 12 Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.” he basically began to accuse another. ACCUSER, you hear this? ACCUSER. Here we call it a railroad function—change of direction. But this is an Accuser, straight up. “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.” OK, 13 And the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”OK, lets go further- 14 So the LORD God said to the serpent: “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” 16 To the woman he said, Please understand, what he is saying now to the woman, he is basically opening up what she has inherited. This is already hers. That's it. He's just describing that, which she allowed into her life. Herself. “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labor you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.” 17 To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; notice, it doesn't say that “I cursed the earth” no, it says Cursed—BECAUSE of you, or in other words, YOU allowed Curse to come to earth. This is not the subject of today's lesson, but I am just focusing your attention on certain things. through painful or this is the result. This is not what God brought, but this is the result of the Curse. Through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.
18 It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.”
Here God describes all that Man received as inheritance, through what? Through Fear which he Allowed. We won't say through fear exactly, but through the spirit of Death with which Fear dwells. Who allowed this? God or Man? Man. MAN. Specifically Man allowed. I consider, that in relation to God, using the word 'allowed' Man—to whom he gave Authority to Allow, is incorrect. God gave Man Authority to rule-to allow, or not to allow. “Whatever you bind, whatever you loose” and then to say that God did this is incorrect. It is not according to scriptures. I am simply underlining certain moments so that you could orient yourselves.
Out of the scriptures we just read, we will of course focus our attention on Fear. And now I will ask a few questions to fix this in. tell me, in what moment of life did man acquire fear? Before Sin or After Sin? AFTER. Of course after---AFTER! Tell me, did you repent in sins? Yes, so therefore, which period are you living in? BEFORE. Before! Of course Genesis chapters 1 & 2. why would you look at yourselves as After? If so, then you haven't repented yet. “how, brother! I repented!” and if you repented, you died. And if you died then you resurrected, and if you resurrected then you are BEFORE. And if you are BEFORE, then what fear are you talking about? I want you to see this, because christians need to determine time-spaces for themselves. If you don't break the bible into certain time-spaces—and the bible itself talks about this—then it is very complicated to orientate yourself in scriptures. You need to tie yourselves to a certain time-space, you need to see where you came in, where you came out, and where you are going—because Jesus said “I am the door” and you probably went out somewhere through this door? Right? If you knew where you came out, Oh, even though it says in there where you came out. So, in which moment of life did fear appear? After Sin. Who became the source of fear to man on earth? Satan, not God. You hear, Not God. Before satan appeared on earth, fear—in any of its forms or manifestations—didn't exist. And now I have a question to you—tell me, if fear was So Important in the question of discipline of the spiritual creation man, and was such an important and unchangeable quality in the life of man, tell me, where would God have mentioned it? In Genesis 1 & 2 or only after, in chapter 3? I think that he would have said, FEAR to Eat of the Tree of Good and Evil. Fear! But he didn't say this, why? Because he didn't have this ability. You hear? I want you to understand this. If Adam would have had fear, then God would have told him to Fear, but God didn't tell him to Fear. Why, after Genesis chapter 3, does he say to Fear? Because now there is Fear. This needs to be seen, this needs to be heard, this needs to be understood. I just want you to understand that Fear, in any of its manifestations, this is NOT YOURS. Worries are not yours. Anxiety is Not yours. These are visitors that you have—which are not your friends, let me tell you. So you need to deal with them immediately, they need to be immediately dealt with, they're like slivers. This is like “a little yeast” that if you don't set it aside, will “leaven the whole batch of dough” just a bit appeared—Stop, Stand—to move further is Dangerous. This is like a red light—you need to immediately stop.
Out of the scriptures we just read, we see that Fear, in the life of Man appeared specifically from the moment of disobeying the will of God. Prior to this, Man did not Fear Anything. Consequently, fear is not the will of God. Complicated? No, its not. Fear is not the will of God. Man, as a spiritual creation of God's love—cannot, simultaneously Love God, and all his creation—and Fear the one he loves. This was always an amazing arithmetic to me, how christians could Love and Fear God at the same time, even though scriptures say that (1 John 4:18) There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. And scriptures say that we believed in the Love of God, and therefore repented. In other words, these are 2 incompatible manifestations. You cannot Fear and Love at one time. In the old testament, this was possible—because they couldn't love. They Couldn't love.
What is Love? It is the fruit of the Holy Spirit, right? In the old testament, the non-born again believers did not have fruits of the spirit. They could only fear. They couldn't Love. This is why in the old testament, God asked of them only one thing: Mercy. Mercy, that's it. They couldn't love. Actually, the non-born again Also can't love. If they say, in the registry office, “I Love You”, then you can compare this to a trip to the kitchen or a bistro. You love this? I love this. It's also about the same conversation. But you know, every time, you need to widen your assortment—with the availability of good food. OK, everyone understood correctly.
I would like to note: that in one container—where there is love, in one container—where there is fear, the other cannot exist. The 2 cannot coexist in 1 container. You hear? Cannot.
I do not get upset with people that tell me to “fear God” or whatever, I simply understand that this person is at a certain maturity level. That's it. You just need to take into account certain things when communicating with him. That's it. A person who is mature in God understands that to walk in both Love and Fear isn't possible. You wouldn't be able to accomplish this in any way. And today I will be underlining these things so that you will affirm yourself in these things once and for all.
In the Spirit of Love there is no Fear, and in Fear there is no spirit of love. This is not the will of God—Fear. Fear in a person is NOT the will of God. I would like to accent this once again.
God is Love. 1 John 4:16 I am saying that in Love there is no fear, and perfect Love banishes fear, therefore they have nothing in common. In scriptures the words “Do not be afraid” are used 365 times. For every day. So God will not be saying “Fear” if after he says “Do not be afraid”. I am putting in the foundation right now.
We noted the time-space before sin as the time-space of the perfect will of God, where there was no Fear, in any of it's manifestations, and the time-space after sin—Genesis chapter 3 to, lets say, the book of acts—why to the book of acts? Because in the gospel, Jesus continued to serve by the LAW of Moses and covenant of Abraham—that is why, in this period of time, when Jesus communed with his disciples, he still used the word 'fear'. Why? Because the disciples weren't born again. When we read the new testament, this word is used very very rarely, and even then, I think it's more by reflex then by content. Because the substance was no longer acceptable. “we didn't receive a spirit of fear”
The next thing we've determined for ourselves is that satan is the Source of fear. From the moment that satan received authority over the spirit of man and of earth, Everyone who was born from Adam and Eve were born with the presence of Fear. You hear? With the presence of fear. This is why for children, experiencing fear is natural—children of non-born again believers. For them it is a natural feeling. And children scare each other... that's why people like watching Horror films—because the spirit that is in them, it dwells and moves in these images. This is one and the same spirit. It attracts one another. This is why children jump out of corners, scare each other, and laugh at it all, because they live by this. I am saying children because inside, they still have this spirit.
I am putting in a foundation in preparation for the lesson. I will note once again. Fear has no relation to man, and should not have any relation to man. Fear has nothing common with Man, and should not have anything in common with Man as a creation, created in the image in likeness of God. Now transitioning to our lesson. I have put in a foundation to correct certain thought patterns—that you have nothing to do with fear. If you have experienced it, worry, anxiety, unrest, and so on—then you will have to deal with it. If you don't deal with it, then in today's lesson you will find out what will consequently happen.
Lesson is “that, what I was afraid of”
Today we will be looking at a very interesting story, of one of the Wise men in a specific time-space, but this wise man has, let's say, his own traits, which we, as a new testament people—I am talking to people who are all born again-I believe—I want to believe this, it's a good faith—everyone is born again. Everyone has the Holy Spirit, everyone has fruit, everyone has the Full Armour of God, the Gifts... Glory be to God. In other words, a fully complete christian, glory be to God. But today I will be talking about a person who didn't have this completeness. All he had was the covenant, by which he had certain relations with God. He wasn't born again, he didn't have the gifts of the spirit, the fruits of the spirit, the armor, all that he had was the covenant. On the basis of this covenant, he was building, with God, certain relations. That's ALL he had. And His covenant differs from your covenant—scriptures mention 3 forms of covenant—it is so bad that christians don't know this—scriptures mention 3 forms of covenant, Absolutely different covenants by their content.
Covenant #1: Covenant of Noah, this covenant included animals. I can cheer you up right away—You are not in this covenant.
Covenant #2: Covenant of Job, and you are not part of this covenant either.
Covenant #3: the last covenant, is the covenant of Abraham—which was extended by the blood of Jesus. That's it. 3 Covenants. It is not wise, on the side of a christian, to identify ones self with either of the first 2 covenants, because you have no kind of relation to them. It's another thing that we can take examples out of these stories which are in tune with certain manifestations—but understand—you have No Relation. If you would have done what Job did, for you it would have counted as sin. For Job, it was not counted as sin, because Job was not born again, and he did not have that, which you have.(Luke 12:48) From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. Therefore, with everything there are two different approaches.
Today we will be looking at our brother in the Lord—I believe he is with the Lord—Job. Of course Job. A very famous personality. Especially in certain denominations. In certain denominations he is famous for one thing, and others, for another. That's why we will be looking today at specifically this personality—Job, who was not part of the covenant that we are part of, but in the covenant that he was part of, he was the high priest, basically he was building relations with God according to this covenant. Therefore I want to note once again—that there is a very distinctive line. We should not be identifying ourselves with this covenant. There is wisdom in this book, there is a purpose to this book, but the goal of this book, is to first of all, open up what we will be talking about today. It is one of it's main purposes.
It's written about Job—that he was blameless and upright, feared God and shunned evil. Very good qualities, right? Blameless, upright, feared God, shunned evil. And I believe, on the basis of the book of Proverbs, that these qualities, or these manifestations, or these actions of his—contributed in a large part to the fact that he was the richest man in the East. As wisdom says, (Proverbs 8:18) With me are riches He was blameless, upright, feared God and shunned evil. The word “shunned evil” says the following: Had Godly Fear, or in other words, hated evil. (Proverbs 8:13) pride, arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Like it says in scripture. This is why all these qualities accompanied the fact that he was wealthy. And now, reading about him.
Job 1:3- and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, in other words, this was good-size vehicle park. If we take camels, then they were probably transport machines, transport or freight machines five hundred yoke of oxen oh, heavy machinery and five hundred donkeys, a bit lighter and had a large number of servants. We see that he had a nice size brigade He was the greatest man among all the people of the East. From the book of Job, we also know what happened to him. What happened to this person—First I red this as an intro—that he was a God-fearing man, Yes a wealthy man, Yes, and also we see that the events that happened in the life of this man are events that we would never wish on anyone. Why did we take this story? Because in this story—it is a very instructive story—is clearly seen: the entry into the problem, and the exit out of the problem. The reason is seen, 100%. The entry is seen and the exit out of the problem is seen. Returning to Job.
I would like to stop here and underline some things because the Holy Spirit stopped me and underlined certain things: tell me, does God have favorites? No. the word no favorites says or means the following: if God did this for one, he will not not do it for another if they ask it of him. In other words, the God that was in the book of Genesis chapters 1 & 2, is the same God that is in the book of Job, is the same God that is in the book of Revelations. He does not change. Man can change, but God doesn't change, you hear? A person can change—he was one way in Genesis chapters 1 & 2, and in chapter 3 the man we now see is different, and beginning with the book of Acts, he is different again. Man changes, but God remains the same. Unchangeable in word God.
Job 1:3- and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants. He was the greatest man among all the people of the East. OK., got it. 14 a messenger came to Job and said, Listen here. The first messenger comes in “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby, 15 and the Sabeans attacked and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” Let's pause here. You can look at these events in 2 different ways—first way, strictly a fleshly way directed by earthly, unspiritual and demonic wisdom. The second way, from a position of Godly wisdom, affirmed by Deuteronomy 28:1-15. If by verse 1, then If you obey the Lord your God, then all these blessings will come on you, If by 15, then if you will not obey, then curse will come. These are the 2 views. If we take the events that I just read, what do you think, which part do they belong to? To the blessings or to the curses? To curses. How do the curses start? If you you Don't obey the Lord your God. What do you think? Which person gets electrocuted? The one who violates the safety rules or the one who doesn't violate the rules, but still gets electrocuted, because, well, that's how it is. Of course the one who violates, because it says on the cover: Do not enter, it may kill you—but he still went in. I want you to compare. The events that are happening in the life of Job, they pertain to the curses. The curses which, it's specifically noted, come through disobedience. You know that disobedience is the same sin as witchcraft, as idolatry, it's a sin of death. Disobedience is a sin of death. Therefore, the events that are happening in the life of Job are Signs, signs that were preceded by what? By disobedience. They didn't come out of nowhere. For some reason, christians think that the events that happen in the lives of people could come out of nowhere. Events don't come out of nowhere, every event Always has Seed, Sower, time of Sowing, time of Growth and time of Harvest. Every Event.
Read the rules of the Kingdom of God—(Mark 4:26-27) The Kingdom of God is like a Man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come. Not a single event occurs circumventing this rule. The Rules of the Law of Sowing and Reaping. This is in Mark 4, first the parable of the sower, then the rules for spiritual laws. OK, moving on.
16 While he was still speaking, another messenger came let's imagine this picture: there's already a messenger standing there, and a second comes in and said, “The fire of God fell from the heavens they couldn't have said anything else—you know that in the period of the old testament and also during a certain period of the new testament—everything, good and bad was tied to one personality—God. One personality. There was no one else, in their eyes. If it's bad, its from God. If it's good, its from God. Thank God for EVERYTHING. Good and bad. “The fire of God fell from the heavens and burned up the sheep and the servants, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” the second one now stood beside the first. 17 While he was still speaking, another messenger came and said, “The Chaldeans formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and made off with them. They put the servants to the sword, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” 18 While he was still speaking, yet a fourth messenger came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brother’s house, 19 when suddenly a mighty wind swept in from the desert and struck the four corners of the house. It collapsed on them and they are dead, and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you!” 20 At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship 21 and said:“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.”
What do we see in the life of Job? Number 1: Loss. I would like to underline specifically this moment: LOSS. Especially since Job, as noted in scriptures, was blameless and upright, feared God and shunned evil. This was all in the position of the covenant. In other words, on the basis of the covenant, he WAS this. But, even in light of this position, LOSS occurred. You hear? This is serious. I am not going to go in too deep into the question of all possible Losses, I will right away note the words of Job, saying which, he probably didn't understand that he gave the answer as to the reason—actually, this is a reason christians don't follow. I was speaking to someone today, and he brought up the subject of Job—I hadn't said anything yet when his friend said “didn't you read what Job said?” and he's like “don't manipulate this scripture” some simply don't believe in this and that's all. They consider that this doesn't apply to Job. And here is what Job said in regards to what happened to him, listen carefully--(Job 3:25) What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. Lets stop here for a bit, study a certain period of time. Lets take the events that happened in the life of Job—the curses. Job says “What I feared” “what I dreaded”, and we need to return to a certain period of time—or in Job's life there was a certain period of time when Fear crept up on Job—or he began to experience fear. Notice, this fear didn't come in the dimension of business—he didn't fear inflation, crisis, or something else... No. the source of fear was specifically concerning his children. With worry. Perhaps it was a tiny worry, which, on some event, in some area he noticed in the life of his child. He noticed this, and began to worry. Simply began to worry. “brother Oleg, what are you implying?” I am not talking about anyone specific right now. He—Job simply began to worry. Then he noticed this in another child's life—and again he worried. And as he was worrying, he was thinking about this—you hear this? Wait, these thoughts were formulated by what? Faith? No, by Fear. Years were passing, and he thought... and thought... basing on what? On fear. Let's go further—naturally, always being under the influence of fear, he began to talk in the influence of what? Of Fear. He didn't just start to talk under the influence of fear, he began to ACT under the influence of fear.
Now let's go into the Job's prayer room—what do you think, when Job was praying—with this content of mind, with those words—on the basis of what was he praying? On the basis of fear. Fear. Did you ever come across in scripture that the prayer of fear will heal—or without fear you cannot please God? Or the Righteous will live by fear? You will not see this. In scriptures it says (1 John 4:18) fear involves torment. He who fears has not been made perfect in love. And faith acts by Love. Therefore all of Job's prayers, all of his actions, were based on fear. He was a powerful prayer, did you know about this? Oh how he prayed. You know, it would have been better if he didn't pray, because all he prayed about—he lost. Specifically His Prayers opened up the door to satan in his life. If you listen how some pray, what motive... why they go to pray to begin with—its because of fear. Fear. You understand what many christian prayers are based on? Simply fear. Not faith—but fear. They go and pray because they are afraid. Afraid. Job says “What I feared has come upon me” when he was going to his prayer room—he was led there by fear. He was in his prayer room covered with fear. He left his prayer room remaining in fear. And he always walked in Fear, in fear, in fear, in fear—he spoke about this himself, not only in this scripture, (Job 3:25) What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. It also says in Job 1:4-5 And his sons would go and feast in their houses, each on his appointed day, and would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them. 5 So it was, when the days of feasting had run their course, that Job would send and sanctify them, and he would rise early in the morning and offer burnt offerings according to the number of them all. For Job said, “It may be that my sons have sinned you hear? and cursed God in their hearts.” Thus Job did regularly. He began to live by fear. He feared for his children. Naturally, scripture says that a small bit of yeast leavens the whole batch of dough. This began with the children, then went on, and on... and it began to leaven All Dimensions of Life.
Let me give you a simple definition for the word Fear: Fear is belief in defeat. Fear is belief in defeat. Defeat hasn't happened yet, but, as Faith calls the non-existing as existing, So Fear calls the non-existing as existing. There is a strategy of fear called Terrorism. Terrorism is deliberate sowing of fear, with the goal of enslaving a personality on the inside. That's it. Terrorism in itself influences people to talk about defeat. And the seed of defeat is sown. That's it—and people start to talk-- “oh, you know.. and on and on and on... I simply want you to never, under any circumstances—if you see such a strategy, and you are in the midst of christians and you see that they all start to talk of Fear—STOP. Yell stop, or yell stop again—this needs to be stopped in any case. In fear there is torment! Christians cannot talk about fear, and especially not anything scary-or that has to to do with fear, because in fear there is torment—it is not gospel. Scriptures say that our words need to be for (1 Timothy 1:4) Godly edification in faith, and not in fear.
So, what were Job's prayers based on? On Fear. God anoints through faith, satan anoints through fear. God comes into the lives of people through faith; satan comes into the lives of people through what? Through Faith—see, you are perfectly understanding everything. Glory be to God!
To see the story of Job more clear, let's take another story—A story of a well-known business man, but not one in the east—he was a Jew. This story is written about in Mark 10:17-22, this is a story about a young rich man. As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” What do I need to do to Live Forever-a good desire, right? A very Good desire!18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’” 20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.” or, in other words—I've been doing all that since childhood. 21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” Listen—One thing you lack— he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, take up your cross and follow me.” 22 At this the man’s face fell. Let's pause here a bit. Picture this—to Jesus comes a man who needs advice. Notice—he came up to Jesus. In other words, if he came up to Jesus, then it's not hard to guess that he was seriously expecting—to get serious advice—and to do what? To become a doer. To follow through. I would like to note this. But here he comes up to Jesus, “What do I need to do to live forever? And Jesus gives him the answer—what do you think, what did this answer lead to? To eternal life. He says “One thing you lack, “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and take up your cross and follow me.” the fact is, Jesus didn't want to put another pauper into his camp. I am telling you this for sure—the goal, or the problem—was much deeper. The motive of this young rich man was not the one he presented... in whole. I will read: At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, Why did he go away sad if he received the accurate answer? What do you think? I will tell you—It's because he desired eternal life NOT because he wanted to live forever, but because that wealth that he had—he wanted it to remain with him forever.
Let's discuss this a bit. To Jesus comes a young man who hasn't yet lost anything. He hasn't lost anything—he still has everything. But we have a brother who lost everything. This is Job, but wait, prior to Job loosing everything, what happened to him? He became afraid. And here is a young rich man who became afraid—but hasn't lost anything yet. I want you to see this. This young man is, we could say he's on first base—first level. To him came a sense of loss, a sense of fear. He began to worry “oh, I have so much wealth—but life, life is so short, I need to do something” you understand? FEAR came. He became worried. Job had this in regards to his children. I simply want you to see these two people, that, this young man, being in the covenant with Abraham, and behaving correctly according to the law—I know that the holy spirit led him to come to Jesus. I know that God brought him to Jesus, not him himself—he wouldn't have thought of it himself. He would have just hidden everything somewhere, and that's it. He came to Jesus because the Holy Spirit led him there. And the Holy Spirit gave him the answer—please understand, that when Jesus said “Go, and sell everything you have and give to the poor” if this young man would have said OK! I go to do this! Then Jesus would have said Stop! You are free from Fear. Now you will see everything differently. In other words, the goal was not so that he would go and sell give away everything. The goal was so that he would separate himself, tore himself away from this. You might say “oh, and what are you basing this on?” on the basis of the words of Jesus to Saul—and said I free you from Jews and Gentiles—you hear, I free you—to whom I now send you” you cannot ever be a blessing to what you depend on. You never possess that, what possess you. To possess something, you need to be free of it. To be a blessing for someone, you need to be free from them. That is why Jesus said, “who loves brother, wife, children... more than me, cannot be my disciple.” because he is dependent. Dependent. If something is holding you in fear, then it controls you. You are bound. A slave. This is serious what I'm telling you, it's tied to fear. The feelings of Loss. Anxiety, Worry in regards to your children—oh, this is serious—especially when they go outside, and by themselves—
OK. We see that this young man was afraid to loose what he had. You know, we don't need to go especially deep here—it's not difficult to guess what this young man will come to if he doesn't repent. We have Job. We know, we can even say to this young man “my dear one, if you don't change your position you will loose everything.”...don't you prophesy to me! We are not prophesying to you, we are telling you based on the wisdom of God—that if you don't do this, there was this brother—Job—and he lost everything. “But I am not brother Job” and that's all, you know how these things happen, “don't prophesy to me, don't tell me stories...”
This young man had a fear of Loss—which stopped him from the consequent actions designed to un-stick him from his wealth. You hear? To un-glue. I am not going to give you all the suggestions right now—what you're worried about, or who you're worried about and all that, but you know, we could sing God a song “Lord everything for you”, “everything you tell me” “if you want me to, I will give you everything-in the church, I mean in the church-in service-we can tell him of our love... “besides you there is no one else—in church” how long is service? 2Hrs. OK. For 2hrs... then we leave service, and that's it. Everything back to normal. Just be attentive to what words you are singing, and what you say in prayer, and all that. Be attentive—because you will get an offer. Simply an offer—I heard this one story—One brother—he probably also sung these songs, “Oh, Lord, for you...” and God, in prayer, tells him—go to china. And he says, 'no, no, this is not from God, this is not from God. God knows that the biggest graveyard of evangelists is in China, and, so, not China—he loves me after all, he knows... he is a Loving father.... but, some time passes, and again “Go to China” and so he fought with God for 3 years. After 3 years, after he had pauper-ed himself morally, physically, spiritually, in soul... he stood before God, and “OK, if you want me in China, then China it is. That's it. Where do you want me to go?” and God says “You don't need to go to China” he says, “I simply wanted you to become obedient to me” that's it. Go and sell everything. You understand? Please understand—if you don't die, scripture say that (John 12:24) unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. “Oh, Lord I will do everything you tell me!” Wait, wait! These are serious things! I am opening up that, what everyone of us, on some level of life, will experience. If you are a heavenly citizen, then you are a heavenly citizen. I know that there are heavenly citizens who have a permanent place of residence, and heavenly citizens for whom it would be better Not to have a permanent place of residence—to simply become just heavenly citizens. Let God instruct you in this, you need to learn to separate yourselves from everything that you have. Nothing is supposed to possess you, otherwise you will not be able to possess anything.
Let's return to our brother Job. He's become a lot closer to us, yes? A lot more understandable... What can we say about Job in this case, out of the events that occurred in the life of Job and this young man? That they each knew of God by hearing of Him. Neither of them knew him personally. Of course neither of them knew him personally. Everyone had a different impression of Him. “but, brother Oleg, Satan did, after all, come into his life-Yes, and God, by talking with Satan, gives us the ability to understand by what reason satan had room in his life to begin with, and I will read you the verse:Job 1:12 listen carefully here, because there is an exclusive moment here-12 The LORD said to Satan, “everything, all the stuff. ALL that he has, ALLhe has is in your power, wait a minute! Who gave him everything? Job himself! Job Himself! Job himself, through fear, transferred the right of ownership of his everything he owned to satan. I simply want you to see this, because christians get caught on snares that satan puts out that are associated with fear. I will once again recall-Fear is NOT your inheritance. If you have even the slightest worry, STOP! Do NOT go further, it's taboo to go further. If you have any anxiety or worry, RUN to your prayer room—to go any further is deathly dangerous! This is serious. Its sad when christians get into unpleasant situations that they are saved from-Jesus saved us from the curse of the Law. They get caught in such situations for only one reason—fear. Fear that they receive Not when they get into such situations, but long before. Satan deliberately comes—winter hasn't even started, but the talks have: “oh, you know this year the flu is probably going to be more severe than before, Oh, you haven't heard-the avian flue went in there and exited there, and the mad cow disease is there... and so on” “And have you heard what is going on with the children, and so on and so on...” and that's all you hear—you turn on the TV, and that's it. All that's left to do is get your casket ready. Fear. All around fear is being sown. Faith is from hearing—and what do you think Fear is from? From hearing! “oh, have you heard of that Ghost....” and what do you think, will he now go to evening prayer? No. There are many such helpers, but who are they serving is the question? “oh, brother Oleg, how can christians serve satan? Well, how Jesus' disciples said “may that not be with you” the SAME. Of course, satan was not in him, but he was simply Speaking what satan was telling him. Simply passing on the information.”Sister, a ghost lives on your street. There is a different way you could say this—Sister, let's pray in a prayer of agreement that on your street—glory be to God—Blessings of God, Peace of God, that not a single weapon of satan will be successful.” of course, the sister could behave interestingly as well: “What are you trying to tell me?” “No! I wanted to say that you are extremely blessed, Glory be to god-on your street not a single weapon of satan will be effective!” “oh, you are hiding something from me” Do NOT say it, you understand? There is NO need to Speak it. It has reached you, and let it die. Let everything dead instantly fall away. Do not tell your brothers and sisters what's going on around—they also have a bible. Everything is written in it. “but brother oleg, I need to put him in the know!” and what? Edification in Faith? Now he doesn't appear in the evenings, and in the daytime he walks—Always with someone. “Jesus said to go by two's” and what's the motive? What's the motive? Fear. FEAR. All around fear-throw out this motive. Let's return to Job. Bless God for our brother.
You will see that God, talking to Satan, simply showed that Everything, EVERYTHING that Job has been long since in his hands. Therefore, all that satan needed was to gather his line, which is what he did... gathered, & left. The entire conversation. But God did not leave Job, because the Covenant had room. Here it is—the Covenant had room. Some time later, using this situation—I'll explain here—God didn't allow satan, but God, being a Loving Father, didn't allow this situation to go to waste. He used this situation to teach his beloved child to not allow satan near. Let me explain in a different way: I want everyone to understand this. I believe that everyone here is a loving parent. Picture this: in your apartment your child is playing, and you know that the electrical outlet in your apartment is loose and you tell your child—you're playing, so play carefully around that outlet—otherwise you could get shocked” the child says OK, and you leave the room. You are doing something in the kitchen, and all of a sudden, screaming—you run into the next room, and there sits—a revelation beside the outlet. Now listen, I want you to understand this according to scripture—will you now come up and give this revelation a beating—do you know, that specifically like this is God represented—that he comes, and just finishes him off. The sin has already beaten him down, but he needs additional beatings to finish him off. This is how God is represented. Wait a minute! This child already got into the mess, he already received an electric shock, he was already punished—you wouldn't be beating him on top of that—I simply want you to have the correct image of God. What would a loving Father or Mother do? They would say, “I told you? Yes... I told you because I love you. Therefore, if I tell you something, it's because I love you, so don't do this! It's much better! I want you to see your father in specifically this light. God has written Curse into the law NOT to frighten his people, “Do not desire that...!” He says, do not desire that... I will give you Better!” you understand? Do not desire the wife of your neighbor, do not—I will give you better, just don't tell him. You don't need His wealth—I will give you more, you hear? Do not Kill—“no, I will deal with this myself” and some talk like this “Oh, Don't Desire!” and you get this image of a stick over your head—step left or step right—and its forgotten that God is Love. That's why I read the book of Job as a book about the Loving Father who, because of the disobedience of his child, some time later when the child calmed down—and is sitting by this outlet with his mouth hanging open ready to listen to his every word—now you can talk to him.
Job 38 This is Where God begins to talk with his favorite son. 1 Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm. He said:2 “Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge? Oh, when I read this I underlined this in red—I always read with a pencil—Oh, look at what Job says.... and what the brothers say... Oh... and when I got this spot, you know how many times I underlined this? You know what the word “without knowledge” means? It means useless, and not needed by anyone. And I underlined this! Oh, good word, good scripture... good verse of promise—I always wrote in the margins. Without Knowledge. “Who is this that obscures my plans with words without knowledge? 3 Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. So that you understand, I want to give you another example: Picture this: you and your wife are sitting in the kitchen, talking, and in walks your 4 year old child, pulling up his training pants, and announces: I am going to live independently. Of course this news will be Good news, you always wanted to hear this, right? And I believe that if there is a wise father sitting there, he will say “OK, but can I ask you a few questions? OK, Independent now, after all—Who bought you those pants? You. Who feeds that body? You. Who pays for the water, electricity, in this apartment? You. Who bought the bed that you sleep in? You. So tell me, what are you planning to be independent in? You hear? He didn't take him and a belt and proceeded to beat this independence out of him---listen now to the Loving Father: Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. 4 “Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? He simply asks questions, He doesn't beat you. Tell me, if you understand. 5 Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? 6 On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone— 7 while the morning stars sang together and all the angels[a] shouted for joy? 8 “Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb I am not going to read the whole thing here, but there are a few chapters where God, question after question, basically asks Job, “tell me son, where I ever change. Show me where I changed in regards to birds, where I changed in regards to nature, show me where I changed in regards to animals, show me where I changed? Show me me where I changed? Show me my weak side—not a single side, you hear? I know that God asks us, his children, if you think that I am Love, and then cut off ears—then show me where I am like this. God came in the Flesh so that you could not Just hear him, but also see him. Therefore, study Jesus. Jesus said “if you knew me, you would know the father”
Many christians don't know Jesus or the Father because the way they picture them, completely contradicts scripture in every area.
God created a meeting for Job with his creator, with his Father. In other words, he went through a lesson, and after this lesson Job 42:3-6 3 You asked, ‘Who is this that obscures my plans without knowledge?’ Surely I spoke of things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know. 4 “You said, ‘Listen now, and I will speak; I will question you, and you shall answer me.’ 5 My ears had heard of you but now my eyes have seen you. In other words, God drew a picture of himself 6 Therefore I despise myself and repent in dust and ashes.” This is the position—and people take him as an example! But he repented in Everything that He had done. A nice approach, right. How can you take an example from one who has repented in everything he had previously done? Actually he repented in that, that he was an example. This doesn't tie in. In this case we see an example of a person who got caught in fear. He had orphan thinking—he didn't know his Father. Jesus said, “brothers, I will not leave you orphans” the Holy Spirit is a spirit of Love. Scripture says that the Love of God will enter our hearts by the Holy Spirit, the Love of God dwells in your spirit 24hours a day.
Some time later, after Job changed his prayers, after he changed the foundation of his prayers, Of course Love... Job 42:10-13 After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before. Notice this position. Prayer based on love. Faith works by Love. Of course Love. What did Job go through? 3 stages—once again, this is not the way, this is not the best way—he could have went a different way, not made such an experiment out of his life. We have a way—this is Jesus. Tell me, did Jesus know everything about sin? Of course everything. But he knew everything about sin After going through it? Or did he know everything about before he took it onto himself? Prior. Where did he find out everything about sin? Through the wisdom of God. This is the the TRUE way of instructing the children of God. “Whoever doesn't have enough wisdom, let him as of the Lord” therefore, there is no need to go barefoot through a field of prickle bushes to find out everything on pain—turn to the Lord, ask him what it is, and he will tell you.
Job went through the following stage: Loss and disillusionment, familiarity with the source of this provision, and restoration of the loss. These are the stages that Job went through. Bless God that we don't need to go through these stages, Jesus went through it all in our place. That is why all we need to do is Accept in Jesus that, what he Already did. What do we need to accept? Death—our death with him, Our burial with him, and Our resurrection with him. That's it. And if you resurrected with him, then you have no past. You know that the dead have nothing to fear. You died—and you resurrected. As it says in Hebrews 2:13-15 And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.”This is about Jesus. 14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by the fear of death. This is not a physical position, this is a Spiritual position. Fear is a position of spirit which reflects in the flesh as well. But with Fear, you will not be able to deal with arrows of fear. Lion tamers, that are not afraid of lions—because they fear not getting paid, can get sick. They aren't afraid of lions though. There are people that walk on high buildings or high wires—they aren't afraid of heights, but they fear problems in the family and that brings curses.
I am saying that Fear is SPIRIT and to deal with it, you need to deal with it in the Spiritual Dimension. And you can only deal with it in ONE way: I will read it to you out of 1 John 4:16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. Tell me, does God love us because we are good or because he IS love. Because he is love. He loves, because he cannot be any other way. And so we know and believe on the love God has for us. God is love. Notice what we believed in? In Love. God is love and Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 Love has been perfected among us in this:you hear this? Love of God, God. that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. In other words, we don't give room to fear. We walk in love, we practice love. “oh, brother oleg, I don't understand how to love” the issue isn't understanding. It's allowing love to flow through you. Love is the fruit of the spirit, it is not Your quality. The fruit of the Holy Spirit. All you need to do is not interfere the Holy Spirit moving through you. You simply give yourself to the authority of the Holy spirit, and the holy spirit loves through you. And as he loves through you, you will grow in his love. Therefore, “I don't know how to love” YES, yes you can if you let the holy spirit to love through you. Going on: 18 There is no fear in love; in the love of God, in the Holy Spirit in you there is no fear. but perfect love or the Love of God in you casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
You might say, “how do I remove fear?” faith is from... Hearing. Love, or faith in love ALSO comes from.... hearing. As soon as anxiety or worry comes, close yourself in your prayer room and preach to yourself of the Love of God. Preach preach preach. And when faith rises up that God LOVES me then—Fear, I order you, right now, to leave my thoughts, my life, and I forbid you to touch anything of mine—if it's fear in regards to anything of yours—that's it. Stand firm in faith, and faith is moved by love. Some time passes and Again fear creeps up, and you again—I don't agree, I don't accept, God loves me, and not a single weapon formed against me shall prosper. You just reach home—again worry—I don't agree, I don't understand these thoughts of fear, Bless God, everything I have belongs to Lord Jesus. Don't worry, while we live here, we will need to preach a lot to ourselves. If you don't or haven't done this, then you need to start. Withstand steadfast in the faith. Faith is moved by Love. To preach to yourselves is normal. This is normal. I always preach to myself. Of course, I try to preach to myself when there is no one around me, so that people don't pray for me—therefore, I try not to tempt anyone, so they don't have any needless thoughts—I try to preach to myself somewhere where there is no one around. Therefore Fear is removed by Love and God, by the Holy Spirit, removed fear from your life. You may say, “oh, well why do I worry then?” That's in your head. In your head are memories of defeat. Of problems. But because they are in your head doesn't mean that they have power over you. If there are thoughts in your head of your past, it doesn't mean that your past has power over you. But if you allow these thoughts to develop, then the past WILL possess you. In regards to Abraham its written “that Abraham didn't think about that Sarah's womb was dead” or didn't allow himself to think about. Forbid yourselves to think of defeat. Of fear, of anxiety, of worry...
Preach to yourselves of the Love of God. Let's thank God for the Love, and that we don't have fear, and that we don't worry... Scriptures say that all promises in him are Yes and Amen.
