Embracing Salvation and Dispelling Fear

2 Timothy 1:7

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.


Today, I want to bring to light a subject that dwells in the shadowy corners of many hearts - the chronic fear surrounding salvation, rapture, hell, and demons. As your fellow-servant on this spiritual journey, it is my duty to guide you through the fog of apprehension into the clear light of God's love.

Fear is a spirit, one that creeps into our hearts and minds, whispering lies of condemnation, doubt, and despair. It speaks in half-truths and illusions, causing us to view our Father's divine plan through a distorted lens.


Fear of salvation, rapture, hell, or demons is not from God. It is a tool used by the enemy to steal your joy, kill your faith, and destroy your identity in Christ. It is time we confront these fears with the truth of God's Word.


God's plan of salvation is not a terrifying judgement but a gift of grace. "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8). Our Father does not deal in fear, but in love, mercy, and peace. His desire is to save, not condemn. His arms, always open, beckon us into a relationship built on love, not fear.


The rapture is not an event to be feared but a moment to be expected with joy. Christ's return is our blessed hope, marking the beginning of a life that will never know suffering, tears, or death. "For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first." (1 Thessalonians 4:16). This is not a moment of punishment, but a moment of eternal joy!


Hell is real, and so is the spiritual battle we fight. But fear not, dear ones. Christ has already gained a victory over death and hell. "He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves" (Colossians 1:13). We must choose faith over fear, light over darkness, love over condemnation.


Finally, let us address the fear of demons. Yes, spiritual forces of evil exist, but they tremble in the presence of our God. As children of the Most High, He has armed us with the authority and power of Jesus' name. "Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." (James 4:7). 


Beloved, it is time to dispel the fear that clouds our minds and hearts. Remember, you are children of the King, saved by grace, destined for eternal joy, and protected by His might. Fear has no place in the love of Christ. Let the assurance of His salvation, the joy of His coming, and the power of His name encourage and strengthen you.


Rest in His promise in Romans 8:38-39, "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."


So I urge you, beloved, let go of your fears and embrace the comforting truth of God's Word. Stand firm in His truths, wrapped in His love and grace, today and always.
