HONOR IS CURRENCY – it is a medium of exchange.
Father God declares the power of HONOR in His Kingdom – “I will honor them who honor Me”, God said in 1 Sam 2:30.
When you honor someone – you will listen and receive from that person. When there is no honor, then no matter what they say, it does not matter. There is no value if there is no honor!
JESUS EXPERIENCED THIS IN HIS HOME TOWN!
Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. (Matthew 13:55-58 NKJV)
What is interesting about this text is in verse 54 they were in awe of His authority and power, THEN, familiarity took over!
I KNOW YOU!! They allowed familiarity to overtake the HONOR of the CALL and ANOINTING!
The Bible says that Jesus could not do many mighty works in that town because of UNBELIEF, but the UNBELIEF did not come first.
THE DISHONOR, LACK OF HONOR CREATED THE UNBELIEF!
Honor is HUGE!
Honor will qualify, or disqualify us from the presence and power of Jesus Christ.
IF YOU HONOR (Respect, highly esteem, make significant) ME, I WILL HONOR YOU!
If you are not going to church, or are bored in church, then get to the altar and HONOR God. He will then pour out His Spirit to HONOR you!
Do not worship the Lord your God in the way these pagan peoples worship their gods. 5 Rather, you must seek the Lord your God at the place of worship he himself will choose from among all the tribes—the place where his name will be honored. 6 There you will bring your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tithes, your sacred offerings, your offerings to fulfill a vow, your voluntary offerings, and your offerings of the firstborn animals of your herds and flocks. 7 There you and your families will feast in the presence of the Lord your God, and you will rejoice in all you have accomplished because the Lord your God has blessed you.
