“Seismos” Greek for storm only used Three times in New Testament:
24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves ; but Jesus Himself was asleep.
Other two “seismos” events: The Death and Resurrection of Christ. Now we get some insight into the teachings of storms.
Note Quotations from Sermon:
“Getting on board with Christ, can mean getting soaked with Christ.”
“In the midst of a stirring storm, Jesus remains unstirred.”
“Lord!. . . Save!. . . .Dying!”
“Fear can erode our confidence in God’s goodness.”
“Fear dulls our miracle memory.”
“Rather than enter the calm of Christ, fear demands that Christ enter our Choas.”
In Gospels, Twenty One commands to not be afraid, Eight to love. . . God is very concerned with your fear.
“Is it possible that in raising the question,’Why are you afraid?’ Jesus is raising a standard, you don’t have to be afraid anymore?”
“If He doesn’t leave us fearless, may He help us to fear less.”
I like that word!!! It’s fits the proportions of my perspective! And honestly, my head knows better, but my heart wonders, “Is He sleeping through this?” I could so relate to, no chit chat. . . . . “Lord! Save!Dying!” And how I get the staccato of those words!
2 Timothy 1:7
King James Version (KJV)
7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
