God is One Self so there is nothing to fear.

God itself always is irrespective of its state of manifestation (which is just another word for appearance really). The answer to the question as to what is God is Love. Yes; it is correct. But there's more to it; God is OneSelf, that is to say, God is One and God is Self and that, as such, it is important to realize that that which you are eternally is.  Any separation on the individual level from God is ultimately an illusory and false concept for 'There is nothing but God; God Itself Is'. God is One Self and as such One Self is Eternal equates God is OneSelf and as such OneSelf is Eternal. I is I; I (it)Self Is. Oneself 'Is'.
