hello friends and family! its your friendly niegbor. neighborhood c. stopping in with with some neighborhood goods.
so let's see what's on the menu!
first we have a fresh understanding of the name of Jesus.
we all are aware that the word name. gives a description of something or someone. so name means the nature, personality, and character of something or someone. today its about the name of Jesus.
the nature / name of Jesus means to be selfless, sacraficial and compassionate. his personality is more focus driven with purpose.and out spoken. some may find his personality as not very social, because of how He manages his time. I would say His character is unwavering filled with commitment and determination. what about us friend ? are we filled with purpose today ? and driven with passion to help those that we can? what's your name? or your nature, personality and character?
the second thing on the menue we have will be the sweet fragrance of His 5 lettered name Jesus. And God has given Him a name that is above every name. and that at the name of Jesus every knew should bow and everytounge should confess. now FAM. not to preach but the word should used here sounds like its indicating that at some point people should get Gods drift. and recognize His son Jesus for He who is and bow. He says the same thing in roam: 10: but he uses the word shall instead of should. because the word shall is irrevocable meaning cannot be reversed. this will happen. every knee will bow in heaven and on earth. you can choose to do so now or your choice will be revoked and later you will still bow but not of your own accord. which is why Paul in Phillips: says should because he's teaching on maturity in the faith. another message for another day.
now back to the incense of His name. the 5 letters together spelling out jesus. represent Gods grace. that was propheysied to come to us wrapped in swaddling clothes as our saviour. the first letter is J. which = wonderful, E. = counselor. S. = mighty God. U = everlasting father. S. = prince of peace.
ISAH: 9:6 FOR UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN A SON IS GIVEN AND GOVERMENT SHALL BE UPON HIS SHOULDER. AND HIS NAME/NATURE SHOULD BE WONDERFUL= J. COUNSELOR= E. MIGHTY GOD= S. EVERLASTING FATHER= U. PRINCE OF PEACE= S.
JESUS THE SWEETEST NAME I KNOW! CAN YOU SMELL THE SWEET FRAGRANCE OF HIS NAME? THE AROMA OF HIS NATURE PERSON AND CHARACHTER? HE LEFT HIS HOLY HABITATION WRAPPING HIMSELF IN EARTHLY FLESH JUST TO COME AND GET US, WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES WHAT ARE WE WILLING TO LEAVE ?THATS REAL LOVE FAM. THE INCENCE THAT THE HIGH PRIEST WERE BURNING IN THE OLD TESTAMENT TABERNACLE WAS SYMBOLIC FOR THE FRAGRANCE OF THE NAME OF JESUS. THAT WHICH WAS TO COME. BEFORE JESUS IT WAS ALWAYS TYPES AND SHADOWS AND NONTHING WAS GOOD ENOUGH.BUT LOOK AT GOD! HE SENT US JESUS.LETS PRAISE HIM FAMILY.
AS THE SONG WRITER SAY: THERES NOT A FRIEND LIKE THE LOWLY JESUS ! NO NOT ONE. NO NOT ONE. UNTIL NEXT TIME KEEP IT NEIGHBORLY. AND LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.
NEIGHBORHOOD! C. TEACH!
