The Fear of the LORD is a Fountain of Life

Verse of the Day, February 1, 2020

Proverbs 14:27 KJV “The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.”

No one can truly escape physical death which is the evacuation of or from the human body or soul. The spirit of a man lives forever, the body is no different than a suit or item of clothing for the spirit.

Therefore, to depart from the traps and lures of death is not in reference to the physical body. When we fear and reverence the Almighty, we embody the fountain of life He is; we depart the snares of death.

Reverence the LORD and perform His will for you, and depart from the lures and traps of the spiritual death!

Praise the Almighty today!

28 In the multitude of people is the king’s honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince.
