The Fear of Man vs. The Fear of God

A seminar for those who want more

Our new seminar is based on Proverbs 29:25

“The fear of man is a snare but he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted.”

What’s a snare? It’s a trap. Set for an animal, it’s held until the hunter returns to capture his prey. Then he either keeps it in captivity to be displayed or, he kills it and eats it! In this case Satan is the hunter and you (Christian) are the hunted one. Writing to Christians Peter said: “Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” Satan sets the trap and the fear of man (political correctness) drives us right into it! Sometimes it’s subtle, we smile when we should frown, or we laugh when we should remain silent. Sometimes it’s blatant. We remain silent when we should speak!

This seminar began as a sermon. It was first presented at a church of 3,000. After the service we had over 900 requests for copies of the message. Then it became a book, and now its a full blown conference. Why should this training interest you?

The Top Ten Reasons You Need To Attend This Seminar:  

1. Numbers 13 tells us it was the fear of man that kept the Israelite’s from entering the Promised Land, the land that flowed with milk and honey. So, instead of enjoying God’s abundance, they lived in the wilderness for 40 years. 1 Cor. 10 says, the things that happened to the Israelite’s in the wilderness were written for our instruction and for our example! God didn’t want the church to make the same mistake. And you know what? We are!

2. God warned the Hebrew people in advance, to fear the people and not take the land would be rebellion (Numbers 14:9). Not believing (trusting) God is a major barrier in our relationship with Him.

3. Political correctness is a major problem in our world. It’s based on the fear of man. Proverbs 29:25 tells us, the fear of man is a trap. Are you trapped or, are you free to be all God wants you to be? Are you part of the problem or part of the solution?

4. Jesus said, “If you are ashamed of Me before men, I will be ashamed of you before My Father in heaven. But of you acknowledge Me before men, I will acknowledge you before My Farther in heaven.”

5. Speaking of our book on the subject, Dr. David Larsen of Trinity seminary said, “The Fear of Man vs. The Fear of God is a clarion call for the church to wake up.” Dr. Robert Coleman (Author of the best selling, The Master Plan of Evangelism) said, “That was a powerful, powerful message. That was a word from the Lord.”

6. Many people have been delivered from the fear of man after hearing this message (or reading the book) and are now enjoying an exciting walk with the Lord as a result.

7. You will be given all the tools you need to overcome this debilitating spiritual disease known as the fear of man.

8. You will meet, and fellowship with some of God’s brightest shining stars, and hear some of the finest Bible teachers on the planet.

9.  Each participant will go home with a 350 page training manual containing dozens of full-blown discipleship training sessions on a flash drive. It’s ideal for sermon preparation, Sunday school lessons, discipleship classes, youth groups, home Bible studies, family devotions, or, to produce your own seminar! The print version retails for $39.95!

10. You will receive a flash drive with 27 more lessons you can study (and teach) at home, church, etc.

WHY PASTORS AND TEACHERS SHOULD ATTEND

Pastor Dave said, “I learned more about evangelism listening to you for three hours than I did in four years of seminary!”

WHY YOUTH SHOULD ATTEND

“Phil received the highest rating of any seminar speaker we’ve ever had!” −Scott Gulkie, Coordinator for the annual “Districts” youth rally, sponsored by the E-Free Church of Wisconsin. They had 3,500 in attendance!

WHY FATHERS AND SONS SHOULD ATTEND

“My son and I attended the Iron Sharpens Iron men’s conference this past March in O’Fallon, IL where we met and attended a seminar by Philip DelRe. As a pastor, I was leading a group of men to the conference, but my real concern was my 18 year old son who has had some tough challenges in the past year. He has wavered in his faith — questioning what and why he believed. This also spilled over into some poor choices and bad relationships in his life. The seminar by Phil was exactly what my son needed!

“Phil’s dynamic personality and engaging presentation of the Gospel totally connected with my son. He laughed, took notes, and was challenged that the Christian faith was intellectually credible in the secular arena of life. He loved the seminar by Phil and wanted me to buy all the resources available (which I happily did!).

“Since that time, there has been a dramatic change in his life. Unhealthy relationships have been severed and he has a renewed joy and commitment for Christ. I thank God for this timely and sovereign appointment for my son and the ministry of Phil DelRe for being the choice instrument He used.” –Pastor Tim

SHOULD MOTHERS & DAUGHTERS ATTEND?

“I just listened to Phil DelRe teach a seminar for three hours. As the former Vice President of Marketing for Christianity Today, I’ve had the privilege of hearing men like Chuck Swindoll, Tony Evans, and Max Lucado. Phil DelRe is the same caliber speaker!”

−Linda Schaumbach, Director of Women’s Ministry at Community of Faith Church in Davis, IL

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:

“Phil DelRe is a no-fear apologist with a sense of humor. His anecdotal style helps the medicine go down and accompanies a sense of urgency to embolden believers. His new book The Fear of Man vs. The Fear of God is a good read and a great resource for study groups.”

 -Fred Tscholl Manager, WFEN Radio Rockford, Illinois.

I’m thankful for Philip DelRe. He has a heart for both the gospel and its clear proclamation. God is blessing Philip’s ministry with fruit that remains.” 

 Phil DelRe powerfully communicates the Gospel and overflows with a passion to reach the lost. His message on the Fear of Man Vs. The Fear of God is a powerful, powerful, word from the Lord and I thank him for it!

In an era of fadism and fashionable substitutes for true scriptural principles, the ministry of Phil DelRe is a ray of hope for the church. Phil has tapped into the mode of true Gospel evangelism that has proved so mighty in the past. For anyone desirous of seeing the type of deep and thorough heart work that so characterized the Church in better days, Phil should not only be heard but studied.

Remember the revival God brought through David Wilkerson working with the gangs in New York City and Nicki Cruz? Philip DelRe has been working with gangs in prison and by God’s grace has led thousands to the Lord! You want to bring a dynamic speaker to your church? Call Phil DelRe! His new book, The Fear of Man Vs. The Fear of God is a must read!
“I have been impacted and blessed personally over the last 19 years listening to hundreds of messages and sermons by well known Christian leaders like Chuck Swindoll, Tony Evans, Gary Smalley, and Steve Farrar.  I recently heard a message at an Iron Sharpens IronConference that God gave to Philip DelRe of Voice in the Wilderness Ministries. I can say without reservation, it was one of the most powerful, passionate and practical messages that I have ever heard.  Everyone needs to hear the Biblical truth of this message and read one of Philips many books.  I just finished reading ‘God, the final frontier’ cover to cover and plan to get it into the hands of everyone I can.”

“The cause of Christ is too often impeded by the fear of man, and Phil Del Re is out to change all that. He’s the perfect teacher on this subject, for he truly fears God and not people. In this important work, he shows us how to be delivered from the fear of man. Read it and prepare to slay giants.”

ROGER KNOWLTON, SENIOR PASTOR OF EDGEWOOD COMMUNITY CHURCH, WAUPON, WISCONSIN

I absolutely love your book, God the Final Frontier. I want my whole family to read it. Your facts on the universe and the Trinity were fascinating!

 I have been attending seminars for over 40 years, and yours was the greatest presentation of the Gospel I have ever heard in my life.

Phil DelRe is a Ten Commandments scholar.

Last spring I heard you speak in the undergraduate chapel at Moody. After your message I picked up a tape, and I have listened to that tape at least twenty times. That was the first day I ever heard such a clear explanation of the Gospel in such a Biblical way.

My son and I attended the “Iron Sharpens Iron” conference this past March in O’Fallon, IL where we met and attended a seminar by Philip DelRe.  As a pastor, I was leading a group of men to the conference, but my real concern was my 18 year old son who has had some tough challenges in the past year.  He has wavered in his faith — questioning what and why he believed.  This also spilled over into some poor choices and bad relationships in his life. The seminar by Phil was exactly what my son needed!  Phil’s dynamic personality and engaging presentation of the Gospel totally connected with my son.  He laughed, took notes, and was challenged that the Christian faith was intellectually credible in the secular arena of life. He loved the seminar by Phil and wanted me to buy all the resources available (which I happily did!). Since that time, there has been a dramatic change in his life.  Unhealthy relationships have been severed and he has a renewed joy and commitment for Christ.  I thank God for this timely and Sovereign appointment for my son and the ministry of Phil DelRe for being the choice instrument He used. Praise the Lord!

—PASTOR TIM

I have had the privilege of working with new believers and men’s discipleship groups for over 30 years. I was initially discipled myself by a campus ministry while attending Western Michigan University. I have known Phil DelRe for 20 plus years. He is a gifted evangelist and a discipler of men. His passion for the Lord is contagious. I was very excited to read his new book “Where Did God Come From?”. I have used it for both new believers and in my men’s discipleship groups. The book lays a solid foundation for any believer to build upon and provides key answers believers need to take a stand for Jesus Christ. I highly recommend the book and the ministry of Philip DelRe and Voice In The Wilderness.

Phil DelRe’s new book God the Final Frontier is the best, most concise and effective evangelistic tool I have ever seen short of the New Testament and remember, not everyone will begin with the New Testament. The pictures in this book hold the readers attention and reinforce the message as they read it.

Phil’s message is right from the Father heart of God.
I listened to your audio message, “The Fear of Man vs. Fear of God”. I listened to it so many times I wore it out (Later, I discovered the same message in print in your book by the same name.)

Until then, I did not realize how the fear of man had subtly influenced my decision-making process, sometimes intimidating me from boldly doing what I knew to be right.  Likewise, I realized I had become desensitized  to the fear of the Lord.  I mention the decision-making process because part of what I do is make important decisions that affect the lives of others.

I am a Judge in a Criminal Court  in a large city and have to make important decisions everyday that affect the lives of many.  In the criminal courts, due to the sheer volume of cases and limited resources, I  seldom have all of the information I might wish and have to make life-impacting decisions anyway.

Now, I pray through Proverbs 29:25 before every major decision. I ask God to purify my decision-making process so that it is untainted by fear of man or approval seeking.  I ask God to instill in me a holy reverence for Him and to do His will without fear and to serve Him and His purposes in this decision.  Guided by these principles, I pray over the court file and the defendants and victims and families lives the file represents. I then render a decision that is fair and just under the law and the evidence without considering the  approval of others or fear of others.

Thank you for distilling down these important truths into a readable, well illustrated, easily understood format.  May you boldly and courageously serve Him until His return.

—J.M. CRIMINAL COURT JUDGE

That was the most fantastic, fantastic, fantastic sermon I’ve ever heard in my life.
