Jesus said, "And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!" Luke 12:4-5 NKJV
"So we may boldly say: "The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:6.
We’re triune beings, consisting of spirit, soul and body. What man can do to us is limited, he can only kill the body, but cannot touch your soul and spirit. Job said, "Therefore I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul." Job 7:11.
These have different personalities; and only the word of God can divide soul from spirit, and body. I hear Job say I loathe my life; for my soul chooses strangling And death rather than my body, (ref: Job 7:15).
But don’t worry my friend, only God can condemn your soul and Him only you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him! I am teaching you the word of God to help you make good life choices for your spirit, soul and body that you may live, and be rich towards God, "that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land..." Deuteronomy 30:20.
He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses." Luke 12:15. Your soul thrives only on the word of God, not on wealth, meat, drink or laying treasure for yourself - "Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing." Luke 12:23.
Do not be afraid of those things meant to test you or afflict the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
God bless you,
