The Fear of God (101 KB)
Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. Wisdom and knowledge of the word of God will soon provide the only stability of the days that are now at hand. The Word of God, and your KNOWING Him, and OBEYING Him, will soon be your only source of strength of salvation. Yeshua is the Hebrew word for salvation. The only treasure that is worth seeking now is the fear of the LORD. The fear of the LORD is His treasure. Have you found His treasure, the fear of the LORD? Did you know the fear of the LORD is His treasure? (Isa 33:6)
A Treatise of the Fear of God (620 KB)
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, "and "a fountain of life"óthe foundation on which all wisdom rests, as well as the source from whence it emanates.

And all who believed were together and had all things in common; and they sold their possessions and goods and distributed them to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people.
