The Spirit of Fear

II Timothy 1:7 “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.
“We do not want to be driven by this fawning, craven, cringing fear. We want to have these demons driven out of us in Jesus name.

Exodus 15:11 talks about the right kind of fear that we should have. It is a reverent fear of our Lord. “Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, awesome in splendor, doing wonders?”

Demons can transfer to us from other people. Therefore, we must be careful who we stand around and what we listen to. Deuteronomy 20:8 talks about this, “And the officers shall speak further to the people, and say, What man is fearful and fainthearted? Let him return to his house, lest [because of him] his brethren [minds and] hearts faint as does his own.”

Again in Deuteronomy 28:58 we see the reverent fear we should have of our Lord. “If you will not be watchful to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that you may [reverently] fear this glorious and fearful name [and presence]

– THE LORD YOUR GOD -” Chapter 28 of Deuteronomy gives us the curses and blessings of God. In this verse the Lord says that we must obey the commandments. If we do not, the curses come upon us and opens the door for the demons to enter us. Disobedience to God s Word allows the Coward demons to enter us.

To be able to do the work of the Lord we must drive out the demons of the Coward. In Judges 7:3 we see the Lord telling the fearful and cowards to turn back. “So now proclaim in the ears of the men, saying, Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him turn back and depart from Mount Gilead. And 22,000 of the men returned, but 10,000 remained.”

In the Strong s Concordance the meanings of the words fearful and cowardice mean: frighten, made fearful, dread, faint hearted and trembling. These are the demons that are in the family of the Coward that drive us to be so afraid.

The Lord wants us to have a strong heart and not be afraid. He told us this in Isaiah 35:4 “Say to those who are of a fearful and hasty heart, Be strong, fear not! Behold, your God will come with vengeance; with the recompense of God He will come and save you. Need we say more. The Lord is on our side and will avenge us. Praise the Lord! The Strong s Concordance for fearful in this verse is cause to make fearful.

Now let s see what Jesus said in the New Testament about fear and cowardice.

Matthew 8:26 “And He said to them, Why are you timid and afraid, O you of little faith? Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great and wonderful calm”

Mark 4:40 “He said to them, Why are you so timid and fearful? How is it that you have no faith (no firmly relying trust)?

That’s what Jesus said. To have faith we must drive the demons of timidity and fear and cowardice out of us.

It is not Gods will for you to live in fear. Pray and rebuke that spirit in Jesus name.

We are now in the end-times. Like it or not, we see destruction, plagues, pestilence everywhere. My friend, if it is not close to the time for Jesus to return seeing all the destruction around us then we are in for a very frightful experience. Aids, floods, cancer, murder, abortion, earthquakes, etc. If this isn t the end-time, what great destructions will we see?

In Luke 21:11 Jesus tells of the end-times. “There will be mighty and violent earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences (plagues: malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating); and there will be sights of terror and great signs from heaven.”

In Hebrews, the writer tells us that if we keep on sinning we have a fearful end. Verse 27: “[There is nothing left for us then] but a kind of awful and fearful prospect and expectation of divine judgment and the fury of burning wrath and indignation which will consume those who put themselves in opposition [to God].” We muormidable and terrible) thing to incur the divine penalties and be cast into the hands of the living God! We, as a people and nation, must repent for the sins we have committed and allowed. Leviticus says that we must confess our sins and iniquities and the sins and iniquities of our fathers. If not, this gives the demons legal ground to stay in us.

Last but not least, Revelation 21:8 says, “But as for the cowards (fearful) and ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers
and the lewd and adulterous and the practisers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed) – [all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone.
This is the second death.”

Well, that says it all. I don t want any demon in me that will cause me to take part in the second death. I want to be free of the demon of the Coward. If that is your prayer also then below is a prayer and a list of demons to be driven out.

According to Leviticus 26:40 I confess and repent on my behalf and on behalf of my ancestors for ten generations for the sins and iniquities of being a coward and not trusting in and obeying the commandments of the Lord. In Jesus name, I break the curse of fear and the curse of the Coward. I break the bondage of the spirit of slavery to fear and replace it with the spirit of adoption according to Romans 8:15 and 16. In Jesus name I root out all doorkeepers of fear.

Now cast OUT the below demons in the name of Jesus, as noted on our basic web page.

Based on the Scriptures above, fear is a sin since it keeps you from going to Heaven. If you haven t yet cast out the spirit of fear, then you need to ask the Lord to forgive you of being fearful every time you get afraid.
