This is the fifth of thirteen questions that have Biblical references.
Q: Why did Jehovah instruct the populace to FEAR him?
A: Jehovah never wanted the populace to fear him, it was more the opposite. Again, this is a misinterpretation of the words and intentions of Jehovah by men of low education but high influence.
What Jehovah suggested is that incarnate man (and woman) should fear “not” being with him (or in communication with him) and that not being with him would result in being attracted and later addicted to the lower frequencies and the sensations, thoughts, behaviours and actions resulting from being incarnate.
