Who Would Not Fear Thee?

Jeremiah 10:7 KJV
Who would not fear thee, O King of nations? for to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee.

Jeremiah exclaims one of the most obvious and important truths in the world; that there is none like God. God is so much above all that is in the world Jeremiah retorically asks, "Who would not fear thee, O King of nations?"

The Lord is the true and living God; who would not fear Him?
vs 10

All of the gods of this world are no only less gods than is the living God, they are no gods at all, they are false gods. They are fake, powerless and worthless.

Not so the Lord. He is true. His Word is real and His existence is evident. He is living; He is aware, He is present, He is thoughtful and He cares.

The Lord is great; who would not fear Him?
vs 6

This greatness has to do with magnificence and wonder. God is truly good. The Lord is mighty and high. He is all glorious.

The Lord is powerful and the Creator; who would not fear Him?
vs 12

All that is exists because of the will of Almighty God. He ordained it to be so and then He spake and it was so.

Any thinking person, who has the conviction in his heart that this God exists, would be wise to fear Him and come to Him for salvation and for service.
