The Power of Fear
Fear brings torment. (Job 3:25) When you are fearful, anxious, and stressed out, you feel it and it negatively affects you. It’s tormenting. That’s why so many people use substances to get away from the torment. Fear arises and wages war against us. One of the greatest hindrances to operating in faith is fear. A believer cannot operate in faith and fear at the same time. Get the Word of Faith in your heart and you will not be overcome by fear. Here are some words that you can hold onto Psalms 23:24, 56:3, 27:1, 112:7; Luke 12:32; Isaiah 55:24, 41:10. These are scriptures that can be used as medicine against fear.
Fear will negatively affect our faith. If our faith doesn’t grow, our prayers will not reach their full potential. We are to become prayer farmers, feeding and clothing those in need, through Phil. 4:6–7 and 1 Tim. 1:7. We have been given the authority to override fear. We have been delivered out of the kingdom of darkness and into the kingdom of the Son of His love, Jesus Christ the righteous. Fear delivers us into bondage. (Romans 8:15.)
Great fear is an opportunity to bring forth great faith. Whenever a situation arises that is producing great fear, pray that God will replace that fear with great faith, in the name of Jesus. These important points are explained in more detail in this message, delivered by Dr. Dowdy on Feb. 2, 2020.
Job 3:25–26 NKJV
For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me,
And what I dreaded has happened to me.
I am not at ease, nor am I quiet;
I have no rest, for trouble comes.
Job 3:25–26 AMP
“For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me,
And that of which I am afraid has come upon me.
I am not at ease, nor am I quiet,
And I am not at rest, and yet trouble still comes [upon me].”
LOJWC Focus Scripture for 2020
Mark 11:25–26 NKJV
25 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
Special Deliverance Prayer: Lion of Judah Worship Center includes time for Holy Spirit directed prayer. Today’s healing prayer is about superbugs that defy medication (Exodus 15:26). The entire service has been separated into three parts. We encourage you to enjoy all three, as a three-course meal!
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
