1 John 4:18 says, “Perfect love casts out all fear.” Love is the ultimate character by definition that triumphs victoriously over every power of darkness. All means all and the casting out is literal. The moment that you are made alive in Christ you are transferred into another kingdom. The spirit of fear no longer holds any power or dominion over you. It has been removed as far as east is from west and made further apart than heaven is from hell.
“Whoever fears has not been perfected in love.” This portion of the text is not exclusively about salvation. This is a life that knows and walks in the absolute, complete, total reality of the love of Christ in depths where nothing is able to render even an iota of fear in the uttermost deeps of your soul. It is faith that has been made perfect like gold refined in a furnace. It’s alive and authentic and a flame that burns with a transcendent intensity. Do you desire an authentic life?
Every fear that we inhibit prevents us from coming into the horizons of reality. True fellowship with Christ. What prevents you from entering into this?
