If somebody drinks the water of this Earth before you, that means that person is older than you because water is the first food that goes into your mouth, even breast milk contains water. And because that person is older than you, you must give him the respect. In Heaven, if you look at ten generations, they all look alike because they’re old, yet, they know who is who. They know each other, and they give each other the respect. I Am the Almighty God. I Am a Father, and as I Am, so are all My children.
If you give birth to a child, as that child grows, you must teach him how to speak and respect others. If you fail to do this, he will bring shame to you by the end of the day. As Christians, if you have two children, apart from twins, that means one is older than the other. The junior one must give his senior absolute respect. The fact that somebody is allowed to call his senior by name doesn’t mean he should disrespect him. He must give him the respect of a senior.
If you’re in the military, you’re under obligation to respect your senior. Even if you’re friends, you must respect him, else, you’ll be punished. Heaven is more than the military. I Am the Almighty God and I Am the Owner of everybody. The highest hierarchy is in Heaven. Though everybody looks the same, but you must respect each other. Many of you lack respect. If you can open your mouth and abuse Me your Father, who else will you respect? As you fail to respect Me, so also, you’ll fail to respect those who’re older than you. If you fail to respect those who’re older than you, your juniors will not respect you also. Whatever you sow you shall reap.
Respect is not only for those who’re older than you. You must respect everybody. For example, a father and his son. I know the Spirit I put inside individual. Physically, a father is older than his son, but in most cases, the Spirit in the son may be older than that of the father. Your father today may end up being your son tomorrow because he’ll come back to live on this Earth again through his generation. This is why you must respect everybody.
When Mary visited Elizabeth, what happened to both of them? They both felt the move of the babies in their womb! That wasn’t an ordinary move, one paid homage to the Other. The baby in Elizabeth’s womb bowed down to the baby in Mary’s womb because One is greater than the other. Though both babies are My children in Heaven and My servants on this Earth, but immediately They saw each other, They recognised Themselves. This was why one bowed down to the Other. These are unborn babies how much more those alive physically.
In the church today, many of you lack respect. This is why you’ll see a junior Pastor who will collaborate with church workers to bring the senior Pastor down because his parents failed to teach him how to respect his senior. If there’s any misunderstanding between the senior and the junior, one will leave and starts his own church. All of you are toiling with My work as you like. Even the senior, if he sees that the anointing on the junior one is higher than his, instead of him to help him in growing it, he’ll find a way to kill the anointing. Can you kill the anointing? You cannot, unless that person dips his hand into sin. No matter who you are, no matter any position you find yourself, don’t allow respect to leave you.
