We need to fear The Lord more then we have in the past, because Christians actions for the last fifty years have not kept the evil at bay! Provision and protection cometh from God.
He is not impressed with our pride and selfishness! He is looking for a repentive humble people. Only a view of his Holiness will do! He is Holy, we need to fear him, and that’s more than reverence. He holds our breath in his hand!
