Fear of Man in the Bible*

A Spirit Fear of Man in the Bible

Five Steps to Overcoming Fear of Man

You can break free from fear of man

Solomon tells us the “fear of man will prove to be a snare” (Proverbs 29:25). Just as an animal caught in a trap can't perform its God-given function when you or I give in to the fear of man, we can't do what God is calling us to do.

'Fear of Man' (simply) describes caring about what a man (male or female) will do to you, what the person thinks about you, how you appear to others, and whether your actions or lack of actions will please others. The torment never ends. That's one way you can recognize it. (Is there any torment in your thoughts toward that person, yourself, or God?)

Fear of man causes people to please and try to live up to their expectations. This can cause anxiety attacks. 

You have to understand how the accuser of Rev.12:10 operates. We are born into a world of accusation and are so accustomed to it that we often think it's our own thoughts or even the thoughts of God. You also have to deal with victimization on many levels-generationally, yourself, and addiction (because sometimes it's such a part of our lives, we wouldn't know what to do if we were not being victimized). Rejection is also a big issue. Also, I agreed with the spirit of 'fear of evil in man.'

The best way to come out of agreement with the spirit of 'fear of man' is to agree with God's word. Here are some scriptures to start meditating on. Continue to search the scriptures for yourself and let them build your faith in God and His word.

Fear of Man Scripture

Mat 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Mat 10:29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.
Mat 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Mat 10:31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Pro 1:33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

1 Jo 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Jesus was and is the example of this for us.

Psa 33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
Psa 33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Psa 33:20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
Psa 33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
Psa 33:22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

Psa 60:11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
Psa 60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

We now know who our enemies are. Eph 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

So, as we continue to do the walkout, the 5 steps to overcome the fear of man, 'the fear of man' will be recognized and defeated.
