Get Wisdom

Why have so many teachers and pastors changed fear to mean reverence when the “the fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.” (Prov 14:27) And “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” (Proverbs 1:7)

Jesus said, “I will forewarn you whom you shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you Fear him.”(Luke 12:5) “therefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: for our God is a consuming fire.” (Heb 12:28)

“wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” (Proverbs 4:7)

”.. he answered and said, every plant, which my heavenly  Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up” (Mat 15:13)

“Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?  And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.  (Luke 13:7-9)

“Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.” (Psalms 2:12-13)
