It is a fearful thing to fall in the hands of God

Hebrews 10:31- it is fearful thing to fall in the hands of God. This bible verse has two meanings:

First of all, God is not a GENTLE man Hebrew 12:29 says Our God is a consuming fire , Jeremiah 10:6 says he is not only great but his name is great in might which means anything that is trying to disturb you is in trouble. Paul and Silas found themselves in a prison bound in chains . Acts 16:25-26 says Paul and Silas decided to put things in the hands of God by praying and singing, the result of this was an earthquake which shook the foundations of the prison rendering them free. The children of Israel after leaving Egypt saw the Chariots of Pharaoh behind them, they started to cry and complain to Moses. Exodus 14:13-31 says Moses decided to put things in the hand of the Lord. By the time God finished with Egyptians ,they never entertained the idea of chasing the children of Israel again. I pray that God will so much deal with all your enemies that they will never entertain the idea of the disturbing you again.The widow of Zarephath had only one meal left for herself and her son, after that death. She came in contact with Elijah( a prophet of God), 1kings 17:11-14 records that after the God dealt with her situation she had enough not only for her family but to feed an extra mouth . Solomon was a young man who had just been made king of Israel . He required wisdom to lead the nation of God’s people.2kings 1:6-12 says Solomon succeeded in getting the attention of God through is offering of a thousand burnt offerings. God was shocked and he decided to ask this young king what he wants , Solomon asked for wisdom and God said ok. By the time God finished with Solomon 1 kings 4:32 says Solomon spoke only 3000 proverbs and wrote 1005 songs. Mark 5:24-34 tells the story of a woman who few problems. She was sick, weak,ashamed, lonely,single,poor,frustrated,unhappy, sad, barren,jobless to mention a few. I believe we all understand the scale of her problems that she had all the problems anyone we could imagine at the same time. She decided to hand things over to God by touching the hem of Jesus garment and she experienced a new beginning: all her problems was solved.

Secondly, The only way not to fall in the hands of God is to obey God. It is important to obey God and live a holy life. Psalm 84:11 says God will not withhold any good thing from those who walk uprightly. Exodus 23:22 says if you indeed obey his voice and all that God speaks , all your enemies will be his enemies. I am very sorry for your enemies because very soon they will be God’s enemies. Psalm 5:12 says God will not only bless the righteous but, with favor he will surround them as a shield. Several years ago , my mum sent me on an errand to her friends house . On getting to the house I did not know that her dog had just giving birth and was nursing her puppies. On entering the compound the dog saw me and thought I came to steal her puppies, she chased me and I ran so fast . If I was put beside Usain bolt that day I will outrun him because I was really terrified. If a dog can do this to protect her puppies imagine God in heaven what he will do when he surrounds his children with favor,i leave you to imagine it. Psalm 11:7 says God is righteous,he loves righteousness and his countenance beholds the upright. Jeremiah 7:23 says if you want it to be well with you just obey God. Psalm 35:17 says God has pleasure in the prosperity of his own that he delights in your prosperity.

It is important to obey God so that we can be his friends .John 15:14 says his friends are those who obey his commandments. James 1:17 says every good and perfect gift is from God and Jeremiah 5:25 says sins withhold good things from us. Every perfect gift God has planned for us we will receive in the name of Jesus. I pray that as we make the decision to obey God , God will surround you with Favor.

Is there anyone who is yet to give his/her life to Christ ,1 John 2:23 says whoever denies the son does not have the father, Matthew 11:28 says come to me all who are weary and burdened and he will give you rest. Brethren , God wants to save you that is why he sent his only begotten son ( John 3:16) .Jesus wants to save you today and give you life. John 10:10 says thieves come to steal and destroy but Jesus came so that we might have life and have it abundance. If you have not giving your life to Christ , it is not too late . He will forgive all your sins , did I hear ALL ? Yes all .

You can do so now by confessing with your mouth that Jesus is lord . Please pray this prayer with me : Lord Jesus, I give myself to You,for You to be my only Lord and Savior. I renounce and repudiate all other loyalties, and I desire no other Lord but You. Please come into me and take control of my life.Mold me to your will and to your use. I ask that you drive out all other spirits which conflict with you in anyway. I want to belong only to you, to be subject only to you. I make this prayer to you, in your name ,the name of Jesus . Amen .

Welcome to Christ brethren , Please join a bible believing church.

    I think Christians talk a whole lot about the “love of God” and neglect to talk about the other side of God which is clearly through the whole Bible. A parallel to Hebrews 10:31, which you quoted, is Psalm 90:11 “Who understands the power of Thine anger, and Thy fury, according to the fear that is due thee.” It’s great marketing to explain verses about fearing God to simply mean a reverential fear (respect), but it seems to me that as you say, unless we are God-followers, we should be in true fear of God. Few people today seriously consider that it would be a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
