Melissa — I believe the awakening we have heard about for a decade, and are currently experiencing, is an awakening to the fear of the Lord. We are indeed headed into not only understanding but living in the fear of the Lord. I grew up hearing that the fear of the Lord is awe, reverence and respect for God, and it is, but there is still more. Here’s how the Holy Spirit presented it to me a month ago, “Either you are bowing your knee in awe and reverence to Me or you are bowing your knee in tolerance and submission to everything else.” (Melissa will be leading worship and speaking at Kingdom Congress which is Mar.3-5,2021.

Melissa – So, the Gablers just had a powwow and here’s what we decided: First, even the non-MSM we have been following is not worth following anymore as everything is “seemingly” crashing and burning. Second, what we have are the prophetic words we’ve heard and believed. Third, THIS IS NOT OVER. Lastly, our number one prayer is that the fear of the Lord hit this nation, and that He deliver us from evil! Job 28:28, King James Version – “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.”
Melissa — I have been hearing about awakening coming for a while now but what are we awakening to? The thing that hits me the loudest is that we are being awakened to the fear of the Lord. I’ve heard from several places that the church has to return to the fear of the Lord, and as He sheds insight on this subject it makes more and more sense why we cannot live outside of it. Well, we have been living outside of it for the most part and that just isn’t working. If we are awaking to the fear of the Lord, what have we been in? We’ve been operating in fear, but it’s a substandard fear. A substandard fear is fear of lack, death, pain, trauma, loss, etc. We, however, are waking up to what we were meant to operate in, which is the premium fear of the Lord. In this premium fear we operate out of awe, reverence, trust, insight and understanding. This is a totally different way of living! Substandard fear is unclean fear, but premium fear of the Lord is clean fear. This obviously leads to totally different outcomes.
As the people of God assemble today may they worship and hear the Word of God in the fear of the Lord that they may honor Him and gain understanding for their lives and families to apply it unto wisdom and life. “The reverent fear and worship of the Lord is the beginning of [a]Wisdom and skill [the preceding and the first essential, the prerequisite and the alphabet]; a good understanding, wisdom, and meaning have all those who do [the will of the Lord]. Their praise of Him endures forever.” (Ps.111:10, Amp)
Your Home #23—May your home be a place where your children are confident that they have a sanctuary away from the faithless hustle of the world. May they have a family that genuinely expresses and lives out
the awe and fear of Almighty God and who stands unmovable upon His Word.
“The Fear-of-God builds up confidence, and makes a world safe for your children.” (Prov.14:26, Msg)
