 An Ideal Christmas Gift

None is so Fierce...

Who can open the doors of his face?
his teeth are terrible round about. Job 41:14 KJV

A friend of mine Chuck Cox shared his testimony which inspired me to create a picture called
Deep Sea Altar Call

He also shared with me the scriptures above from the book of Job, which convey the sense of awe we need to have towards God....while we are not sure what particular creature the Lord is describing here, the shark certainly comes very close, inspiring fear and dread, one look at its mouth is enough.

Yes, its good to ponder the wonders....and even the terrors of God's creation, it puts us in touch with reality, helping us to understand our creator and our need to fear Him.

Many cry God is love - then forget it was love that created creatures like the shark. Take a look at creation and ponder.... "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - His eternal power and divine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse". Romans 1:20

The fear of the Lord is regarded as old fashioned and outdated.....yet it was the fear of the Lord rather than love which caused me to read His Word and seek His face, it caused me to find out about heaven and hell, and wondered about my own life and where I was heading ...it was only then I began to appreciate the Lord's great love and seek His mercy and His Kingdom.

There was once a Christian involved in street evangelism and was witnessing to a New Ager. After some discussion, the New Ager had lots of sophisticated arguements, but the Christian just stuck to the Bible and gave a simple testimony....he told the reason why he was a Christian - because he trembled to think that he must stand before God one day and must give an account for his life. After further discussion the time came for the Christian to leave....but before leaving the New Ager turned to him and confessed
"You make me afraid.....what you said about standing before God one day!"

It's not fine sounding human arguements the world needs to hear or trying to make the Gospel look cool - it's the Fear of the Lord thats needed - it is the beginning of Wisdom. Proverbs 9:10
