We have all heard it said that “Everything that shines ain’t gold.” And in Isaiah the 14th Chapter, Lucifer (The Devil) is described as the bright Morning Star – The most beautiful of God’s creations. Nevertheless, he was cast down out of heaven to the earth along with a third of the stars (angels) of heaven) for prideful rebellion (Revelation 12:4).
There are a lot of good looking, good sounding, excellent speaking, persuasive and motivating preachers and Pastors who shine brightly in the earth.
But suffice it to say that “Everything that shine ain’t Gold.”
The Bibles teaches us to “test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
And how do we test the Spirit to see if they are confessing or rather teaching the Doctrine of Christ?
Apostles Paul answers that question in Galatians 1:8 by saying: “if anyone or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one preached to us by the Apostles of Christ, let them be under God's curse!”
The standard for telling if a preacher is preaching God’s Truth is to measure it against the commands of God and the teachings and practices of the true apostles of Christ.
Christ and His Apostles have set the standard for the Church of Jesus Christ. And any other teaching, any other doctrines or any other practice is accursed.
Everything that shines ain’t gold!

In the Authorized King James Version of the Bible, it is reported that the phrases “Fear not” or “Be not afraid” appears 103 times.
In the New Testament, “Fear not” appears at least 16 times and “Be not afraid” appears at least 9 times for a total of 25 times.
“Fear” itself is spoken of in the King James Version of the Bible.
And Jesus said unto Simon, “Fear not. From henceforth thou shalt catch men.” – Luke 5:10
And in Matthew 10:28 Jesus says to “fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
And in Psalms 111:10 it says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.”
Is the Bible contradicting itself or are there different types of fears being spoken of.
