He feared the Lord, our God the Almighty. For he knew John the baptist was righteous and holy and yet he beheaded him. Yea, I fear the Lord, our Almighty God the Father, God the Son and The Holy Spirit. Second to this I fear to lose my wife, and I did. She divorced and left me. I pray to God for help and give my burdens to Him because He is in control. I wish she would forgive me like the Father does, and come back to me. Amen.

King Herod feared spiritual power. He feared God. He thought that he was the highest, anything below him is subject to die. Yes, I do have fears in my life. I fear God. I fear of losing my chance to heaven. Why would I give up that chance, just for earthly possesions and pleasures? Yet most of us do.

King Herod feared many things, do you have any of his fears?
King Herod had fear for his kingdom, he was right on the otherhand, it could happen to any king, when you hear that your kingdom is at stake, that another one has been born to take over. Hero did not understand the concept of Jesus, he thougt He was the usual king. Yes I have some fear in my life, but blessed be the name on God, because the fear I got cannot make me take someone`s life. Whenever I fear i pray.

He feared the righteousness of John. Herod recongnised the goodness of the messages of John but his office/pride prevented him from following. He locked John up for speaking against his marriage yet he often attended to John to hear him speak. Herod was caught between being a king of an unrighteous bunch and following the goodness preached by John.

Even thou he was a king and had the power to kill he feared for his life concerning the life of John the Baptist. Because he knew in his heart that John was a righteous and holy man send by God. So when he was pressured to behead John just to please Herodias daughter he had great sorrow. I can`t even imagine killing some one much less having some one beheaded who is a godly man. I Love and Fear God and I hope that I never do any thing like that in my life. Praise the Lord! God Almighty!

Writing for the second time! Remember he killed all the innocent male infants below the age of two years, in a fear that a new King, called Jesus was born, who might overthrow his regime? Remember also Jesus was sentenced to death by Pilate, and with knowledge of Herod, when they thought about him being the King of the Jews? These Jewish kings had a fear of anyone who threatened their supremacy on the throne. He could have stopped the beheading of John, but he chose not to, rather to have him killed.

John the Baptist Beheaded

King Herod heard this, for his name had become known, and he said, "John the Baptizer has risen from the dead, and therefore these powers are at work in him." But others said, "It is Elijah." Others said, "It is the Prophet, or like one of the prophets." But Herod, when he heard this, said, "This is John, whom I beheaded. He has risen from the dead." For Herod himself had sent out and arrested John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, for he had married her. For John said to Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife." Herodias set herself against him, and desired to kill him, but she couldn't, for Herod feared John, knowing that he was a righteous and holy man, and kept him safe. When he heard him, he did many things, and he heard him gladly.
Then a convenient day came, that Herod on his birthday made a supper for his nobles, the high officers, and the chief men of Galilee. When the daughter of Herodias herself came in and danced, she pleased Herod and those sitting with him. The king said to the young lady, "Ask me whatever you want, and I will give it to you." He swore to her, "Whatever you shall ask of me, I will give you, up to half of my kingdom."
She went out, and said to her mother, "What shall I ask?"
She said, "The head of John the Baptizer."
She came in immediately with haste to the king, and asked, "I want you to give me right now the head of John the Baptizer on a platter."
The king was exceedingly sorry, but for the sake of his oaths, and of his dinner guests, he didn't wish to refuse her. Immediately the king sent out a soldier of his guard, and commanded to bring John's head, and he went and beheaded him in the prison, and brought his head on a platter, and gave it to the young lady; and the young lady gave it to her mother.
When his disciples heard this, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.
