- Youngs Literal Bible
10:28 And be not afraid - of any thing which ye may suffer for proclaiming it. Be afraid of him who is able to destroy both body and soul in hell - It is remarkable, that our Lord commands those who love God, still to fear him, even on this account, under this notion.
Mt 10:28 Fear not them. Of men, who can only destroy the body, but cannot harm the soul. But rather fear him, etc. Fear God, who can condemn the soul to banishment. The command is to fear not the displeasure of man, but that of God. In hell. See PNT "Mt 5:22". The word in the Greek is "Gehenna", not "hades".

I lost a companion.to not willfully ending their life..it wasenttheir self .. it was a force of "fear " itself.. she feared God cause she was a good person .. In her last text message to.me she stated " I 'm Lost " however the son.of God came to seek.and to.save those who are lost.. amen ! I.believe she is in the heart of Jesus and being loved with a greater Love than any of us can comprehend ...

The word of God in Matthew 10:28 is awesome.Now I
understand the devil has no power to send people to hell.The Lord has the ultimate power over our lives.I am so happy!Praise the Lord!!

Only God has the power of permanent and eternal destruction. Humans or devils can only kill tempoarily because of the two ressurrections. Do not fear them because the frist death is tempoary but fear God because tbe second death is eternal. Do not fear them because they cannot destroy the self; but fear God because he can destroy spirit, soul; and body eternally.

This will let you know that the only fear that is healthy is to fear God respect other things but truly fear God alone not the devil who is in Gods hands you will be wise to know that God is the only true power and he is good thank Lord Jesus he is
