A Vessel of Honor

1 Samuel 2:30

“Therefore the Lord, the God of Israel, declares: ‘I promised that your house and your father’s house would minister before me forever.’ But now the Lord declares: ‘Far be it from me! Those who HONOR me I will HONOR, but those who despise me will be disdained.

Isaiah 29:13

The Lord says:

“These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.

How do we Honor the Lord?

We honor Him with our obedience (1 Samuel 15:22), surrendering our lives to Him as a willing & obedient vessel (Isaiah 1:19), our body which is holy and pleasing to Him (Romans 12:1), our love for Him above everything (Matthew 22:37), taking Him as our treasure (Matthew 6:21) and fear Him (Proverbs 8:10).

How does God Honor us?

The Lord honors us by resting the manifest presence of His glory on us. Then His radiance will shine out from us (Exodus 34:29, Isaiah 60:1,5) making us flame of fire (Hebrews 1:7) and we become His vessel of honor (Joshua 3:7).

If we become His treasure, He will make us His treasure. This is the gospel that He has entrusted to AOF Ministries in the part of the body of Christ to raise up His last-days Warrior Brides and the Lord confirms it with signs and even the manifest presence of His glory is upon the book, "The Arsenal of Fire."

From His holy mountain, He is releasing and connecting the same kind of Lions and Eagles together and they will speak the oracles of God with signs and wonders following, to uncover and reveal the deceitful religious systems that are hidden in the church. This group will not trust in their own righteousness and they will walk with powerful anointing - cleansed and purified by the fire of God and they will be so drawn to their first love – Jesus Christ and they will be so consumed by the love of God, which conquers all. The love and compassion of Jesus Christ will come upon them and they will minister with the heart of God that will “bind up the broken-hearted; open the eyes of the blind; set the captives; and deliver those in bondages.” (Isaiah 61).They will endure much for His Name’s sake, being persecuted, rejected, accused, abused, misjudged and forsaken. But the glory of God will shine through them. “Christ in us, the hope of Glory.” (Colossians 1:27)

Who does one not desire to be part of His awesome vessel of honor?

Luke 19:35-36, "They brought the donkey to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the donkey and put Jesus on it. As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road."

Jesus did not step on the cloaks. It was the donkey who walked on the cloaks because the donkey was carrying Jesus. The donkey became a vessel of honor. Likewise, we become a vessel of honor when we carry the manifest presence of His glory.

The most precious treasure is not being in the presence of God, not being filled by the presence of God but CARRYING the manifest presence of His glory that His light will shine out from us. This makes all the difference!

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.
