[The Glory Unveiled]
The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. ( Proverbs 18:10 )
The righteous is one who is saved through the finished works of Jesus and has come into the environment of the Godlife where spiritual death is eradicated. As a result, the righteous is now able to relate with the things of God without being held back by the legal setups of Heaven. With all the opportunities that avail themselves to the righteous in Christ, there are certain realities that will not be experienced by the righteous until they come into the name of the Lord. Like a faculty in a university or a higher learning institution that though exists on the campus, a student who does not belong to that faculty will not participate and may not know the things that go on in that faculty, so is the righteous who has not yet come into the strong tower. The amazing thing is that the righteous is not born-again into this tower but has to run into it. This calls for a conscious effort and determination on the part of the believer if that believer will taste and walk in the reality. At the mention of the name of Jesus, every knee bows and tongues confess that He is Lord, of things in heaven and on earth. But the name does not work for everyone even though it carries power because only a few people have truly come into the name of Jesus. The sons of Sceva were one of those who did not come into the name of Jesus (though they were sons of a Jewish chief priest and exorcists) but wanted to participate in its packages as the apostle Paul did, we all know what happened to them as a result of that error (see Acts 19:11-16). Principalities in heaven obey and work with principles. The name works, but for those who are in it. Let us run into the name of Jesus through the sincere dealings of the Holy Spirit with us.
Prayer_Bead: Father in heaven, thank you for the power in the name of Jesus. Usher me into the tower of recognized sons through your dealings. And give voice to your power in my life. In Jesus name.
