If you’ve read the Bible from time to time, you might be familiar with the Almighty’s Name being a strong tower. Yet, through history, very few use or know His Name, so the importance of His Name has meant less and less to most people over time. This has even diminished His Authority in the minds of many, for this became the intent of those seeking power through leadership. They have been robbing His Authority, just as they have yours, in order to rule over you. With your Heavenly Father, whether you have known His Name or not, His Authority is really what is being dealt with in scripture. Through His Authority, His track of righteousness that He has defined is a strong tower. (Matthew 23:12; Luke 14:11, 18:14; James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:6; Proverbs 29:23; Job 22:29) Those that seek refuge in YHWH will be exalted, just as the Messiah was and is exalted. Just as Yahshua [Jesus] came to be exalted, so will His disciples be exalted in righteousness as they humbly come to agree completely with Him. (“Leadership & the Universal Authority of Messiah“; “Walking the Track of Righteousness“; “Understanding Sin“; “Set Apart to His Purpose“; “Replacing Sin and Becoming Set Apart“; “The Image & Mark of the Beast System“)
Consider Paul’s compassionate expression of this to the Philippians:
“Now, whatever encouragement is in Messiah, whether comfort in love, whether through hearts and minds in the Spirit, whether tender affection and compassion, my joy is overflowing that we are of the same wisdom of mind, possess the same love, are unified in the one Way of understanding.
Nothing through ill-tempered contention or empty pride, but in modesty without rising above another in authority, give attention not only to yourself, but each one also to others. For in this way, exercise your wisdom, the same that is also in Messiah Yahshua, Who, existing in the nature of Elohim, did not consider equality with Elohim as being a prize to be grasped after; yet, became nothing to Himself, not refusing the nature of a servant, coming to be in the likeness of a man, even coming to know the ways of life as a man, abasing Himself and coming to be obedient as far as death, even death on the stake of the Romans.
On account of Elohim, He was even exalted beyond measure and His Name restored to favor beyond every Name. Even every tongue will agree completely, because Yahshua Messiah is Master, to the honor of Elohim the Father.” – Philippians 2:5-11, Project for Truth
When a disciple humbles self, the attitude of the flesh, and is willing to put others above himself or herself as Yahshua [Jesus] did through the power of the Set Apart Spirit [‘Holy Spirit‘], each one comes closer to living in His Wisdom and Power. He became as nothing so that we could be saved. He is the example for His disciples. That means that each disciple has a goal, refusing continuously to exalt self through fractious attitudes and contentious pride as the world does. Disciples are to exercise His Wisdom, becoming as servants to one another through the power of the same Spirit, becoming in full agreement with His Power. A disciple becomes fully confident in Him. (“Bible: Wisdom 101“; “The Meaning of Humility“; “The Thread of Life in Messiah“; “Disciples: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“; “Attitude & the Disciple of Messiah“; “Leaders & the Antichrist Spirit of Wisdom“)
“For a day in My tower is more favorable than a thousand elsewhere; more excellent to wait at the threshold of the door in the House of my Elohim than to remain in the tent of iniquity, because YHWH Elohim is a battlement and protector. YHWH gives favor and honor. Nothing favorable will be withheld from those that walk in His righteousness.” – Psalm 84:13-14, Project for Truth
“For judgment repents to righteousness. All upright of heart pursue it.” – Psalm 94:15, Project for Truth
