MESSAGE TOPIC: THE BLESSING OF THE FEAR OF THE LORD (1-3)
BY: DR PAUL ENENCHE
SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the Blessing that flows from the fear of the Lord /character
The fear of the Lord, which translates into positive character, is a major doorway to blessing in lif.
The absence of the fear of the Lord, which translates into negative character, is a major doorway to curses in life.
If you fear the Lord and walk in His ways, the Blessing of the Lord is not negotiable
God is under pressure to release the Blessing on His people if the conditions are right (Ps. 133:3)
One of the conditions that must be right is the fear of the Lord which is the facilitator of positive character.
Scriptures make it clear that we serve the God of Blessing; He is the Custodian of the Blessing.
God is eager to bless His people but the Blessing can only come if the conditions are right.
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO WALKED IN THE FEAR OF THE LORD AND HAD POSITIVE CHARACTER:
- Abraham (Gen. 14:22-23)
- Jacob (Gen. 31:38-40)
What is not yours can never increase you; whatever is not rightfully yours will only reduce your life and destiny
- Joseph (Gen. 42:18; 39:5-6)
3a. What does not belong to you does not belong to your future
Anything that does not belong to you does not add anything to your life
3b. The integrity of today is the determinant of the prosperity of tomorrow
Financial integrity today equals financial prosperity tomorrow; financial crookedness today equals financial wretchedness tomorrow
3c. How you handle what belongs to another determines how God will handle what belongs to you
3d. Your commitment in the present determines your fulfilment in the future
- Daniel (Dan. 6:2-4)
4a. Reliability is the doorway to responsibility
RELIABILITY is doorway to RESPONSIBILITY which will grant you OPPORTUNITY, position you in PROSPERITY and grant you AUTHORITY
- Job (Job 1:1-3)
5a. The fear of God guarantees the flow of good
5b. High integrity is foundation for high prosperity in the Kingdom
5c. The holiest can be the greatest
Holiness does not equal wretchedness; piety does not equal poverty
Consecration to God equals satisfaction in life (Prov. 19:23)
- The men of Joash (2Kings 12:15; Prov. 28:20)
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO DID NOT HAVE THE FEAR OF THE LORD AND HAD NEGATIVE CHARACTER:
- Achan (Josh. 7:24-26)
- Gehazi (2Kings 5:20-27)
- Judas Iscariot (Matt. 27:3-10)
Money not gotten by right cannot create a future
God is in a hurry to bless his people but the people of God are trying to function like the people of the world and that limits God
SCRIPTURES ON THE FEAR OF THE LORD:
- Proverbs 11:11 – There is blessedness in uprightness and there can be no blessedness in crookedness
- Psalm 24:4-5 – Cleanness of hands is the way to blessedness of life
PRACTICAL ISSUES TO AVOID:
- Don’t divert to yourself what belongs to another; that is the way of curses (Lam. 3:35-36)
- Avoid dishonest gains and profit (Prov. 28:8; Jer. 17:11)
- Don’t destroy people to rise; don’t trample on others to rise in life (Lam. 3:34-36)
- Don’t profit from the pains, calamities and disasters of people
- Don’t profit from the self-destructive lifestyles of people by marketing or trading in substances
that destroy human lives (Hab. 2:15)
- Don’t lie to be rich or steal to be rich (Ps. 101:7)
- Don’t deny people their rights, benefits and privileges to be rich (Lam. 3:35-36)
If you cannot get it by right, it doesn’t have a future; don’t get it by lie or by stealing
- Don’t inflate figures or falsify records for the sake of gain or profit (Prov. 28:8)
- Don’t reduce quality to magnify profit, and many times at the expense of people’s lives (Eccl. 9:10)
Do quality work that will market you! Let your excellence bring you eminence
There can be no value except there is cost
- Don’t be involved in the fraudulent diversion of revenue for gain or profit (Jer. 17:11)
- Don’t take delivery of income that is not due to you (deceptive income) (Amos 5:12)
- Avoid the way of bribery (Amos 5:12; Job 15:34)
Any money you cannot defend before God don’t take it, make it or touch it!
Absolutely embrace uprightness and completely avoid crookedness in order to experience durable blessings from heaven
God in this day and in this age is looking for men and women that He wants to make into signs and wonder; He wants to use you to show that you can be holy and wealthy, beautiful and righteous, Godly and handsome.

Father, I receive the grace to embrace the way of uprightness and avoid the way of crookedness; the grace to live for You, I receive it Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
