JOHN: They’re not singing, these seraphim. You know what? I’ve been, I’ve been, I’ve been here for ten trillion years. God, can I go see some other parts in the universe? They don’t, they don’t want that. They don’t want to be anywhere else. Because there’s nothing in creation more beautiful than the Creator. And so every moment another facet of His glory is being revealed. And all they can do is cry “holy!” And they’re crying “Holy” so loud the doorposts of that auditorium, that can seat probably a billion people are shaking. And you know what builders told me when I lived in Florida, they said if you’re ever stupid enough to hang around when a hurricane comes through, get underneath the door jams of the interior room of the house, it’s the most stable part of the structure.

Their cries of responding to what they see are shaking a building in heaven that seats a million, a billion people. Do you understand Isaiah’s groveling, he’s groveling on the ground, “I’m coming apart at the seams” and he’s crying out “Woe is me” because he realized who he was before this holy God. Look, don’t get me wrong. Jesus brought us and reconciled us back to the Father. But He’s still God, and in the New Testament He’s still called “the consuming fire.” He’s still called “the just and holy God” in the New Testament. So we have to understand Him as Daddy and we have to know Him as King. And when you understand that when we know Him as Daddy, [and] we know Him as King, we leave a very healthy life. Can I pray for you tonight?

AUDIENCE: Yeah.

JOHN: You say, John, you know what? —Can I tell you, let me tell you this. How did this all begin with me? I went to a church back in the mid-nineties. They had just had an internationally-known revivalist. He was there for 4 weeks. The community had 60,000 people in it and the church had a 1000 members. They had 1/60th of the community in that church. It was a hopping church. I went in there and I preached a little bit on the fear of the Lord, much lighter version of what you heard tonight “cause I didn’t know what I know now. The next night when I got up to speak again the pastor got up and corrected me for 15 minutes.

He said, “We don’t— John is confused, we do not have to fear the Lord because the Bible says “perfected love casts out fear,” we have the Father, we love Him, we don’t have to fear Him.” Well he confused the spirit of fear with the fear of the Lord. And I’ll never forget I went out the next day and I found a construction site “cause I like love praying outside. And I remember I literally, I, I was terrified, I thought “God, I hurt your church, I’ve been corrected by a pastor for 15 minutes before I was introduced last night.” And I said, “I’ve hurt Your church, I’m so sorry.” And I remember crying out to God. And I didn’t feel his displeasure, I felt His pleasure.

And before that prayer time was over I found myself crying out for the fear of the Lord.   And that’s how my whole journey began. And so tonight I want to pray with you that the same Holy Spirit of the fear of the Lord will manifest and fill your life. Because you know the Bible says “the fear of the Lord is safe.” I don’t know about you but I want to be safe. Right? It’s too, too messed up of a world right now. And I’m not scared of the world, believe me I’m not scared. When you’re safe you’re fearless when it comes to the world. Okay? You don’t go hide, you’re fearless. You’re going to serve who you fear. If you fear God you’re not going to fear anything the world has to throw at you. But if you fear men you’re going to serve men. I don’t know about you but I want to serve God. Amen?

AUDIENCE: Amen.
