Malachi 1:14 …… and my name is to be feared among the nations.

Mathew 6:9…. Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,

People these days are into fist bumping each other. I still have a picture in my mind of President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama fist bumping her husband. Hey you might as well get it in your mind too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nepUoHk_Bzk

You cannot fist bump God! My meaning of this is not to get too familiar with God in a disrespectful way. When I hear people say…oh my god…..god dam you….the big guy upstairs…..it makes me sad to think people have such little respect for His Holy name. I also hear…let’s have a Holy Ghost party in here or just yelling Jesus Christ because your upset. Believe me….if God appeared to you ….you would be shaking and quaking in your boots before the Almighty God. One day every knee will bow/every person will bow before God. God is not your boo…..He is not a dude…..or you boy toy.

GOD IS HOLY! His name should be hollowed which means to be respected , honored and greatly reverenced. God is perfect…there is no evil in Him….He is divine….He is very very very Holy….He is pure.
He is the creator of the whole universe…..there is no beginning and no end to Him and He is so powerful that His mere presence would burn us up like straw…..if He yelled it would destroy us…….He could make everything disappear and bring it back again if He wanted to……He can create many other universes and beings and He probably has.

My point is…..do you realize who we are dealing with here? I may not have given the best examples but I tell you……when I go into some of the deepest times I’ve had in prayer with God I have seen some things and have felt some things that have taken my breath away and I tell you….God is unbelievable!!!!! The things I have experienced is things that God has revealed in the bible like what you read in Ezekiel or Revelation….I just experience it in visions and dreams with God through the power of the Holy spirit making it a personal experience for me.

God is nothing to play with at all. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit is Holy and their names should be reverenced by all who speak it. You know God doesn’t need me to defend His name but I love Him so much and not 100%… but I do understand enough about Him to know He is Holy and should be respected and worshiped.

Message for today: Aretha Franklin sang about what it means to her….Rodney Dangerfield begged people for it…but God is the only one who truly deserves it!! All praises be to the Name of The Most High God!

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name!!
