What was the name given that is above all name? Is it Jesus or Lord?

Some think that the name given is “Lord” because the verse says that the name was given when He was exalted apparently, to some, He was exalted only after death and so, it cannot be the name Jesus because it was given at birth, not after death. While this makes sense, it lacks merit.

Let’s check why was the Son exalted.

1.) He was in the form of God but did not consider himself equal to God.

2.) He made himself of no reputation taking the form of a bondservant.

3.) Coming in the likeness of Men.

4.) He humbled Himself.

5.) Become obedient to the point of death.

The above 5 were the reasons why He was exalted and gave him a name that is above all names.

Now, let’s arrange which one happened first.

No. 4 and becoming obedient did not even start during his human birth nor ended in death.

He was already humble and obedient even before coming in the likeness of Men otherwise, if the son was not humble and obedient, he would resist coming in the likeness of Men. For this reason, the name that is above all name was given way before He came in the likeness of men and since the Father has foreknowledge, to Him, even in the beginning He knows already that the Son will stay humble, obedient all throughout even when it did not happen yet and so, the Son being exalted happened even before coming in the likeness of men.

This is the reason why in Heb 1:4 where the Son inherited a more excellent name happened way before coming in the likeness of Men but, during this time, the name was not yet made known to man, it was only made known when the Son came in the likeness of men, after all, this was the Father’s plan in the beginning. Heb 1:5 say, He “again” will be His father implying that God will become a Father to Him twice or twice the son will be born, one in the beginning in a glorified form and one to be born in the likeness men (bondservant).

Remember, the verse did say that the Son has a previous glory even before the world began (John 17:5). Son here is defined as the Image of God Col 1:15. Son = Image of God, the express Image of God’s person or being (Heb 1:3).

The title Lord was always attached to the name Jesus, it never really goes away or was only given after death and resurrection. There are many verses in the bible that He was already Lord even before death.

Matt 12:8- He refers to Himself as the Lord of Sabbath

Matthew 8:25- He was called Lord by His disciple.

Luke 6:46- He acknowledges that He is Lord.

But, if this is the case, who was the one made Lord and Christ in Acts 2:36.

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Acts 2:36 NKJV

Answer: The clue is the phrase “whom you crucified”. The flesh was the one crucified, you cannot really inflict pain on the name Jesus because its THE WORD and WORD is spirit and God is Spirit. The one who was made Lord and Christ was the human Flesh who carried the name of His Father (John 17:11-12) because this was the one crucified, this was the Christ or chosen one.

– to carry the name of the Father

– To become the lamb of God

– To be with the Father forever in the glorified form.

There is only ONE GOD – The Father

INC (Iglesia ni Kristo) – Is unable to accept that the Name Jesus was the name of the Father given to the Son who was sent to become a Christ. Hence, they made Jesus a man to press on that there is only one God- The Father. Here, giving money is part of worship, the more money you give, the happier God is.

MCGI (Ang Dating Daan) – They embrace that there is more than one God. Jesus and YHWH. YHWH is higher than Jesus. They don’t accept that YHWH has a knee but have another part of the body so that, YHWH cannot kneel in the name Jesus. They believe in hierarchy trinity though they don’t use the term trinity. YHWH as the highest rank. Second highest is Jesus. Third highest is the Holy Spirit. Accept donation only within their congregants.

JW’s (Jehova’s witness) – Is stuck to the name Jehovah’s that when Jesus said the below, they did not take it as it is rather, they made the word of Jesus Christ not that literal since they already made the name revealed to Moses literally a personal name, even when the verse was silent about it. They choose to prioritize the word of Moses than the word of Jesus Christ.

I have come in my Father’s name, and you don’t receive me. If others come in their own name, you receive them.” John 5:43 CEB

“I’m no longer in the world, but they are in the world, even as I’m coming to you. Holy Father, watch over them in YOUR NAME, the name you gave me, that they will be one just as we are one.” John 17:11 CEB

I have REVEALED YOUR NAME to the people you gave me from this world. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.”John 17:6 CEB

“Righteous Father, even the world didn’t know you, but I’ve known you, and these believers know that you sent me. I’ve made YOUR NAME known to them and will continue to make it known so that your love for me will be in them, and I myself will be in them.” John 17:25-26 CEB

Because of this, JW’s though they consider Jesus as God, they don’t worship Jesus rather do obeisance so that, they only worship one God in the name Jehovah. Voluntarily donation.

UPC (United Pentecostal)– They made the Father the same as the Son seemingly implying that the Son while on earth was actually praying to Himself. Also, God gives the 10% of their congregants income as their Pastors financial living support including personal expenses. This is mandatory otherwise, God will curse non-giver of 10% of their income.

End time believers– They believe Eve cheated sexually with the serpent and Cain is literally the product of this but in reality, physiologically, if ever Eve cheated with the serpent who was one of the beasts, degrading the woman character since the woman cheated literally with someone who was a part of the animal kingdom, if its even possible that an animal can impregnate a woman, it would follow that Abel is that product. Click here why Abel is the firstborn.

Born Again Christian– They believe in trinity equal in all, also practice giving 10% but their notion of what its for varies.

Catholic– They believe in trinity equal in all and other stuff not mention in the bible. Donation of any amount.

And, this is TINK (Totoong Iglesia Ni Kristo)

Watch!

The Man in the White Horse

“Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked, and behold, a (1) white horse. (2) He who sat on it had a (3) bow; (4) and a crown was given to him, (5) and he went out conquering and to conquer.” Revelation 6:1-2 NKJV

(1) White Horse– White Idiomatically means, clean and or pure intention, while horse indicates power.

(2) He who sat on the White Horse– refers to any man having pure intention and power- This man could refer to Peter because he was one who had the purest, untainted intention and He has the power of God. He performed miracles:

“so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also, a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.”Acts 5:15-16 NKJV

(3) Bow– Refers to revelation, notice that arrow was not mentioned because arrow idiomatically means the content of those revelations. It uses the word bow so that, when the content of those revelations is taught, it goes to distant places in the same manner that when an arrow is thrown with a bow, it goes to distant places.

“Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 16:17 NKJV

(4) And a crown was given to him– this refers to the authority vested in him by Jesus Christ Himself.

“I tell you that you are Peter. And I’ll build my church on this rock. The gates of the underworld won’t be able to stand against it.”Matthew 16:18 CEB

(5) And, he went out conquering and to conquer– in his time, the believer grows by multitudes, this was due to the bow or the revelation that he held which he taught. To date, those words are going places, conquering even now.

“They praised God and demonstrated God’s goodness to everyone. The Lord added daily to the community those who were being saved.” Acts of the Apostles 2:47 CEB

Atheist and Theist, Who is Wiser?

Believing in God or not believing in God is a personal choice. Whatever your choice, it becomes your personal truth, it is not an absolute truth because neither one can prove empirically that God exists or God does not exist hence, it becomes a personal choice.

But, there is one empirical truth that is common to all and that is death. Everyone dies at some point in time, what happens next though is only a notion of what might happen.

Atheist believe that nothing happens.

Theists believe that there is life after death and this is because of God.

If you are an atheist, your chance of being correct is half the chance as the theist.

What if the atheist is right and the theist is wrong? Well, in death, what happens to atheist also happens to theist and so, they are equal.

What if the atheist is wrong and theist is right? Well, in death, atheist as expected nothing happens but dead, theist though under the right belief get to live eternally.

So, in both scenario, who actually lose?

I guess you know the answer.

If you do choose to be theist, in this notion, it gets more complicated as theists have a different belief of who and or what is God.

Nonetheless, under the notion that there is God. One branch of theist belief is also half the chance as correct as of the other branch of belief. Again, this comes down to a personal choice what to believe.

Some choose to believe what others have told them to believe.

Some choose to believe according to what makes sense to them.

Nonetheless, in either case, the chance of them being correct is half the chance as of the others.

So, choose wisely and better choose a belief that is truly yours not from someone else because, at some point in time during judgment, you cannot pass the blame to others saying that you were taught wrong and so it was not your fault. You were given a choice and whatever your choice, you alone are responsible and liable to it, you cannot play the blame game with God.

To know who and or what is God? watch!

The Spirit Of Elija

Why does some preacher pick a verse and point it to themselves implying that the verse is referring to them?

Example: The verse below:

“Look, I am sending Elijah the prophet to you, before the great and terrifying day of the LORD arrives. Turn the hearts of the parents to the children and the hearts of the children to their parents. Otherwise, I will come and strike the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:5-6 CEB

One preacher who claimed that the verse is pointing to him was Jim Jones who was responsible for mass suicide.

In the Philippines, the verse also is being used to point it to some preachers, few of them are:

1.) Felix Y Manalo

2.) Eli Soriano

The idea of this is to solidify the supposed authority given to them so that, since the verse is pointing to them, what they preach is impossible to be wrong.

The problem is, these men who claim that the verse is pointing to them are still human, they are corruptible. When people already believe that the verse really is pointing to them, they will find their words to be always true because to their believers, it’s impossible for them to make mistake since they are the one being referred in the verse hence, the Jim Jones case whereby the followers really follow him to a remote place and commit mass suicide there.

The bible warned us to not trust men who perish or subject to death.

“Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem?”Isaiah 2:22 NIV

Set your trust to Jesus only because to date, He lives.

“And again: “I will put My trust in Him.” And again: “Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”Hebrews 2:13 NKJV

Which Word do you Prioritised?

To my understanding, you take first the word of Jesus Christ to be the reference or centrepiece to which your interpretation of other verses will pivot, this is because, the Son is the word of God and He alone knows the Father to the fullest.

Example: When Jesus said:

“I have REVEALED YOUR NAME to the people you gave me from this world. They were yours and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.”John 17:6 CEB

The answers of the questions below may vary depending on whose word you prioritise.

  1. What is the name that the Christ revealed?
  2. Why must the Christ still reveal the name of the Father when Moses already revealed it way back in the old beside, it’s already a common knowledge for the Jews to know the name of God yet here, the Christ revealed the Father’s name?
  3. Is it possible that what Moses had received was not really the preferred name of God?
    If you prioritised Moses word, you’ll probably make the “name” in the verse not really a name but a power and or authority so that, Jesus did not really revealed the Father’s name since Moses already revealed it way back in Exodus.
    But, if you prioritised Jesus Christ word or make His word the center piece of your interpretation, you would wonder what was that name which Moses had received, it must be that Moses did not really receives the most preferred name of God rather, God reserved a name for the Son to make it known and that name, is the name given to the Son. The name given showcase who God is through the Son, in this name, the Father is glorified. (John 14:13)

What is the​ difference between a temple and a church?

The difference between the two is like the difference between what is a house and a home.

A house implied that although you live in it, you are not happy and or not united with the one in it, in short, you live in it but inside, it’s in turmoil.

A home implies that yes, you live in it and you are happy, united with others who also live in it. In short, the place is not in turmoil.

It is the same as on temple (house) and church (home).

All of us is a temple of the Holy Spirit but not all are a church of the Holy Spirit because Holy Spirit is God and God is life, whether you are good or bad so long as you have life, God is in you, you just don’t know or acknowledge it yet.

“Or don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you? Don’t you know that you have the Holy Spirit from God, and you don’t belong to yourselves? 1 Corinthians 6:19 CEB

But, the moment you knew and follow the will of the life that is in you since conception, you will become a church of God. This means you and the life in you are now in unity. You are now, a HOME – church.

Click here to know the will of THE LIFE

Yes, you too are a church. The Body of Christ is THE CHURCH and every member of it is also called a church.

It’s like a BIG circle, in it are many small circles, nonetheless, whether its a BIG circle or small circles inside the big circle, all are called a circle.

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” John 14:23 NKJV

See here on what the verse above means.


“And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.” Colossians 1:18 NKJV

In the above verse, the body of Christ literally was called the church. His body is a church both literally and figuratively. His body is just one yet it’s called a church and, it is said that we should be like Christ

“No, we will speak the truth with love. We will grow to be like Christ in every way. He is the head,”Ephesians 4:15 ERV

To be like Christ is to be become a church within THE CHURCH, that means, we become an integral part of THE CHURCH or His Body.
