The Word was made flesh ... Jesus
In case, many may not know it, according to scriptures the principles of the Lord of
Hosts are expected to be learned by His Followers not just His Name. We are expected to
know the principles of His WORD.
Matter of fact,King David of Old, when in the Spirit said in Psalm 138:2. "I will worship
toward thy holy temple and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy TRUTH, for
magnified thy WORD above all thy NAME."
So who are we to contradict, David, a man after the Lord's own heart. For David learned
the principles of the Lord through his sins, and consequent punishments until he finally
learned the Lord's mercy and righteousness and TRUTH. So this is why he went on to
say, "In the day, I cried (not just a half hearted prayer) thou answerest me and
strengthened me with the strength (the Lord's strength not David's) in my soul. All the
kings of the Earth shall praise thee when they hear the WORDS of thy mouth.'
So if some just don't get it, learning about the Lord starts with a FEAR and honoring of
the King of KINGS, as His Holy Spirit teaches us his truth about life as we live it. Then
we can with a fuller understanding, praise His Name, even His more sacred Names with
more heart and more soul and more meaning. Merely knowing His Name is hardly true
praise and honor to Him, for it has to be coupled with heart knowledge of his principles
and a life dedicated to His Service. Besides, Jesus himself, will turn to those that expect
to enter into his kingdom by saying, 'Depart from me, because I never knew you, even
though you address me as LORD, LORD, or Yeshua, or Yahushua, or Yahweh, etc. etc.
To understand his WORDS, you literally have to use them, experience them by doing
His Will (John 8) Knowledge of the scriptures, isn't 'head knowledge' but a practical way
of living and helping the Lord's people.
Consequently His Name is much, much more than the correct spelling, pronunciation,
language derivative, etc. etc. His Name represents His life, His actions, all of His
Words. His Name encapsulates everything He said and everything He did. To merely
state His Name without understanding His life and His LOVE and especially His
Sacrifice is sacrilege.
This is why He magnified His WORD above His Name. Matter of fact, His Name isn't
written on His Chest, when He comes down to destroy the forces of evil at the battle of
Armageddon, but His Title the "WORD OF GOD" is, which includes All His WORDS.
According to His Word
