[1 John 4:18] There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. [NAS]

  •  Before we leave the verse that we just read, let's look at it once more.
  • There are four phrases. 
    • Each phrase contains the word "fear".
    • Each phrase would contain "love" but,
    • One phrase replaces "love" with "punishment". 
  • Fear is in our minds.
  • If we let God replace punishment in our minds we will have no fear.
  • Why do we fear? Fear involves punishment.
  • Until we understand Jesus took our punishment we will fear punishment.
  • Understand that the perfect love of God removed any reason we could have for punishment or fear; therefore, leaving nothing but perfect love.

[John 10:11] "I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep. [NAS]

[John 10:27] "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; [NAS]

[John 10:28] and I give eternal life to them, and they shall never perish; and no one shall snatch them out of My hand. [NAS]

[John 14:6] Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me. [NAS]

[John 11:25] Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me shall live even if he dies, [NAS]

[John 11:26] and everyone who lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" [NAS]

[Romans 8:15] For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, "Abba! Father!" [NAS]

[Matthew 6:33] "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. [NAS]

[Colossians 3:23] Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men; [NAS]

[Hebrews 13:5] Let your character be free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, "I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you," [NAS]

[Hebrews 13:6] so that we confidently say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What shall man do to me?" [NAS]

[1 John 4:18] There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. [NAS]

[1 Thessalonians 5:18] in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. [NAS]

[2 Timothy 1:7] For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:1] The word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai saying, [NAS]

[Jonah 1:2] "Arise, go to Nineveh the great city, and cry against it, for their wickedness has come up before Me." [NAS]

[Jonah 1:3] But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare, and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:4] And the LORD hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a great storm on the sea so that the ship was about to break up. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:5] Then the sailors became afraid, and every man cried to his god, and they threw the cargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down, and fallen sound asleep. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:6] So the captain approached him and said, "How is it that you are sleeping? Get up, call on your god. Perhaps your god will be concerned about us so that we will not perish." [NAS]

[Jonah 1:7] And each man said to his mate, "Come, let us cast lots so we may learn on whose account this calamity has struck us." So they cast lots and the lot fell on Jonah. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:8] Then they said to him, "Tell us, now! On whose account has this calamity struck us? What is your occupation? And where do you come from? What is your country? From what people are you?" [NAS]

[Jonah 1:9] And he said to them, "I am a Hebrew, and I fear the LORD God of heaven who made the sea and the dry land." [NAS]

[Jonah 1:10] Then the men became extremely frightened and they said to him, "How could you do this?" For the men knew that he was fleeing from the presence of the LORD, because he had told them. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:11] So they said to him, "What should we do to you that the sea may become calm for us?" - for the sea was becoming increasingly stormy. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:12] And he said to them, "Pick me up and throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become calm for you, for I know that on account of me this great storm has come upon you." [NAS]

[Jonah 1:13] However, the men rowed desperately to return to land but they could not, for the sea was becoming even stormier against them. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:14] Then they called on the LORD and said, "We earnestly pray, O LORD, do not let us perish on account of this man's life and do not put innocent blood on us; for Thou, O Lord, hast done as Thou hast pleased." [NAS]

[Jonah 1:15] So they picked up Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea stopped its raging. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:16] Then the men feared the LORD greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the LORD and made vows. [NAS]

[Jonah 1:17] And the LORD appointed a great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the stomach of the fish three days and three nights. [NAS]

[Jonah 2:1] Then Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the stomach of the fish, [NAS]

[Jonah 2:2] and he said, "I called out of my distress to the LORD, And He answered me. I cried for help from the depth of Sheol; Thou didst hear my voice. [NAS]

[Jonah 2:3] "For Thou hadst cast me into the deep, Into the heart of the seas, And the current engulfed me. All Thy breakers and billows passed over me. [NAS]

[Jonah 2:4] "So I said, 'I have been expelled from Thy sight. Nevertheless I will look again toward Thy holy temple.' [NAS]

[Jonah 2:5] "Water encompassed me to the point of death. The great deep engulfed me, Weeds were wrapped around my head. [NAS]

[Jonah 2:6] "I descended to the roots of the mountains. The earth with its bars was around me forever, But Thou hast brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God. [NAS]

[Jonah 2:7] "While I was fainting away, I remembered the LORD; And my prayer came to Thee, Into Thy holy temple. [NAS]

[Jonah 2:8] "Those who regard vain idols Forsake their faithfulness, [NAS]

[Jonah 2:9] But I will sacrifice to Thee With the voice of thanksgiving. That which I have vowed I will pay. Salvation is from the LORD." [NAS]

[Jonah 2:10] Then the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah up onto the dry land. [NAS]

[Jonah 3:1] Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying, [NAS]

[Jonah 3:2] "Arise, go to Nineveh the great city and proclaim to it the proclamation which I am going to tell you." [NAS]

[Jonah 3:3] So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three days' walk. [NAS]

[Jonah 3:4] Then Jonah began to go through the city one day's walk; and he cried out and said, "Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown." [NAS]

[Jonah 3:5] Then the people of Nineveh believed in God; and they called a fast and put on sackcloth from the greatest to the least of them. [NAS]

[Jonah 3:6] When the word reached the king of Nineveh, he arose from his throne, laid aside his robe from him, covered himself with sackcloth, and sat on the ashes. [NAS]

[Jonah 3:7] And he issued a proclamation and it said, "In Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles: Do not let man, beast, herd, or flock taste a thing. Do not let them eat or drink water. [NAS]

[Jonah 3:8] "But both man and beast must be covered with sackcloth; and let men call on God earnestly that each may turn from his wicked way and from the violence which is in his hands. [NAS]

[Jonah 3:9] "Who knows, God may turn and relent, and withdraw His burning anger so that we shall not perish?" [NAS]

[Jonah 3:10] When God saw their deeds, that they turned from their wicked way, then God relented concerning the calamity which He had declared He would bring upon them. And He did not do it. [NAS]

[Jonah 4:1] But it greatly displeased Jonah, and he became angry. [NAS]

[Jonah 4:2] And he prayed to the LORD and said, "Please LORD, was not this what I said while I was still in my own country? Therefore, in order to forestall this I fled to Tarshish, for I knew that Thou art a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness, and one who relents concerning calamity. [NAS]

[Jonah 4:3] "Therefore now, O LORD, please take my life from me, for death is better to me than life." [NAS]

[Jonah 4:4] And the LORD said, "Do you have good reason to be angry?" [NAS]

[Jonah 4:5] Then Jonah went out from the city and sat east of it. There he made a shelter for himself and sat under it in the shade until he could see what would happen in the city. [NAS]

[Jonah 4:6] So the LORD God appointed a plant and it grew up over Jonah to be a shade over his head to deliver him from his discomfort. And Jonah was extremely happy about the plant. [NAS]

[Jonah 4:7] But God appointed a worm when dawn came the next day, and it attacked the plant and it withered. [NAS]

[Jonah 4:8] And it came about when the sun came up that God appointed a scorching east wind, and the sun beat down on Jonah's head so that he became faint and begged with all his soul to die, saying, "Death is better to me than life." [NAS]

[Jonah 4:9] Then God said to Jonah, "Do you have good reason to be angry about the plant?" And he said, "I have good reason to be angry, even to death." [NAS]

[Jonah 4:10] Then the LORD said, "You had compassion on the plant for which you did not work, and which you did not cause to grow, which came up overnight and perished overnight. [NAS]

[Jonah 4:11] "And should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know the difference between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?" [NAS]
