Many moons ago, Yeshua (Jesus) told me: “Honor is like a battle axe that decapitates the enemy,” because then you are not under the headship of the enemy.
Dishonor is fleshly/carnal, demonic, and prideful while honor is the opposite. When we honor another person, as one made in God’s own image, we walk according to the Spirit. “For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the desire of the flesh is against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, in order to keep you from doing whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law” (Galatians 5:14-18 NASB).
Honor can be one of the most humbling things a person can do; because when we are struggling to honor another, we believe that we usually have a good reason not to. “The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, and before honor is humility” (Proverbs 15:33 NKJV).
Honor also elevates our mind, our will, and our emotions to heavenly places. “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, think about these things” (Philippians 4:8 NASB).
When we honor people, we ultimately honor our Redeemer, our Maker, our Best Friend: “‘Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.’ (Revelation 4:11 NASB).
Kings and priests made after the eternal and righteous Order of Melchizedek have humility, love, and honor as their hallmarks. “When He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying, ‘Worthy are You to take the scroll and to break its seals; for You were slaughtered, and You purchased people for God with Your blood from every tribe, language, people, and nation. You have made them into a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will reign upon the earth’ ” (Revelation 5:8-10 NASB).
Give em heaven!!!
