Honoring the King
Holy Spirit thru Priscilla Van Sutphin

"Honoring one another is a tradition given by Me, because I created humankind in Our own image! No matter what the person has become, no matter what they are doing, you need to be respectful of them. Don't assume their motives. But you will know them, really know them by their fruits. Are they humble. Are they respectful back to you? Are they pretenders, or real. Humble or proud.

But ALL HONOR AND GLORY belongs to the SON of God, because it is HE who redeemed you from the curse, and redeemed ALL OF MANKIND from the hands of the enemy if they will only HONOR THE KING and Bow to HE WHO has shown the greatest love of all to die for them. He alone is worthy of all honor and glory!"

1 Tim 1:17 NKJV Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise,* be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

"When men take the glory to themselves that is due only to God, they are bringing a curse on themselves, unless they repent. Their pride will be their undoing, and they will fall away in some manner from the grace of God. When you take money from men, because of the GIFT I have put in you, it is not your money, but it is My blessing given to you. It would be wise then, for you to give ME the upper hand in how you spend that money. It is not yours, but it is by grace you have received it. So look for My grace for what to do with it.

I honor those who honor ME, and especially who listen to ME and do what I ask. At times I will allow you license to do things to refresh your heart and soul, to have fun, and bless your families. But the honoring belongs to Me. Not to man who only obeys me in giving. It is good to honor men for their faithfulness, but like it says in James, do not honor those who give above those who cannot give. Do not prefer those who are rich above those who are impoverished. Learn to love those who seem to some unlovable, and I will bless you, without strife and trying hard.

I am looking for obedience. I am looking for your dependence on ME as the King of your heart. Because then you will not get into trouble in integrity. It becomes an easy slide into backsliding, if you are independent of Me. It is by grace you have been saved, and it is by grace you are kept in the palm of My hand. Do not be anxious to get money. A spirit of poverty is on many because of greed and discontentment. They are always wanting MORE, because they are not free. They have an empty heart, lacking in love. So their love-substitute, is money, or things money can buy, to fill the void in their heart.

Many today feel entitled to do evil for gain. I said that men would become lovers of themselves, and lovers of money. And it is clearly seen in the world around you. People do ANYTHING for money these days. In that environment, the church has taken on much that is in the world. If you do not repent for these things, you will be exposed in a way I wish not to do. But I am a jealous God, Who loves you and will convict those with contrite hearts, but if you will not listen, then I will make it public in a way you would not want, for the sake of your souls.

Many sitting in churches, are wanton, and needy, yet tithe but when they are in trouble, no one helps them. Is this not what the tithe is for? - to help widows and single moms, orphans and the infirm? To help those in desperate situations?"
{ I was reminded how Amy Semple MacPherson helped thousands in the depression to pay rent, and utilities, and fed so many daily }

"The tithe was not for spending on selfish wants, but for NEEDS, including giving to the POOR. If you want freedom from any trap of the enemy you've fallen for, then come to Me, and repent and ask me to remove that thorn in your flesh, and I will do it! You have not, because you ask not.
Or you ask with not really wanting freedom. So come and let us reason together beloveds. I am here, and I am eager to be Your Deliverer, and Your Healer. I am not a harsh taskmaster. I AM FULL OF GRACE & MERCY. And I am the LOVER of your soul! I will forgive, and I will deliver if you only come to me with a contrite heart.

For many of you it has taken a long time to overcome, because of the devastation of the enemy. Many in the church have not understood your struggles, and have disdained you to the point of hating you for the gifts I've put in you. But I AM Your Husbandman, and I will watch over you and I will arise in you as I have promised. Ask for the Spirit of BURNING to come, to release you from ANYTHING that stands between us. WORSHIP ME IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS. WORSHIP ME AND COMMUNE WITH ME IN THE SAFETY OF WORSHIP, AND WATCH WHAT I WILL DO! COME AWAY FROM ALL THE DISTRACTIONS, AND LET ME HEAL YOUR HEART OF ALL THAT EMPTINESS AND FILL IT WITH MY HEART, MY PATIENCE, MY LOVE AND KINDNESS."

John 5:22-23 NKJV For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, 23 that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

John 4:44-45 NKJV For Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. 45 So when He came to Galilee, the Galileans received Him, having seen all the things He did in Jerusalem at the feast; for they also had gone to the feast.

John 5:41-45 NKJV "I do not receive honor from men. 42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. 43 I have come in My Father's name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. 44 How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God? 4

John 8:49-51 NKJV Jesus answered, "I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. 50 And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges. 51 Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death."

John 8:54-56 NKJV Jesus answered, "If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your* God. 55 Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, 'I do not know Him,' I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad."

John 12:26 NKJV If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.

1 Peter 2:13-17 NKJV Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, whether to the king as supreme, 14 or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men — 16 as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as bondservants of God. 17 Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.

1 Peter 1:6-9 NKJV In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, 7 that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, 8 whom having not seen* you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9 receiving the end of your faith — the salvation of your souls.

Heb 5:4-8 NKJV And no man takes this honor to himself, but he who is called by God, just as Aaron was. 5 So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: "You are My Son, Today I have begotten You."* 6 As He also says in another place: "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek";* 7 who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, 8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.

Rev 4:9-11 NKJV Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, 10 the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying:
11 "You are worthy, O Lord,* To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist* and were created."

Rev 5:12-14 NKJV 12 saying with a loud voice: "Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!" 13 And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: "Blessing and honor and glory and power Be to Him who sits on the throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!"* 14 Then the four living creatures said, "Amen!" And the twenty-four* elders fell down and worshiped Him who lives forever and ever.*

Rev 7:11-17 NKJV All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying: "Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen." 13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?" 14 And I said to him, "Sir,* you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters.* And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

Rev 19:1-2 NKJV After these things I heard* a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, "Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord* our God! 2 For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her."

Rev 21:23-27 NKJV 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it,* for the glory* of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved* shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it.* 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day(there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.* 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes* an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
