Awesome (adj.) – Inspiring awe; causing awe or terror; inspiring wonder or excitement;
I am not awesome; you are not awesome. That was not an awesome concert; that is not an awesome car!
According to Paul Washer, awesome means abject terror.
The fear of the Lord: It doesn’t mean reverence, it means trembling and fear! His name is Awesome! It strikes fear into the heart of man. Do you tremble at His word, or do you look for loopholes around it?
If God doesn’t strike fear into your heart, if He is a comfortable God of yours, then He is not God at all! He can do nothing for you! But you like Him, because He can do nothing to you; but that is not the God of the Bible.
