A Name That No Man Knows
Now Jesus of Nazareth is called "the Son of man" and on the Earth there is no greater appellation given to any human character. That's how it was until Jesus Himself brought news of a new name that trumps the old Son-of-man nomenclature. Jesus earned His Name by doing the work His Father (God) gave Him to do. For His accomplishment, God the Eternal has given Jesus "a name which is above every name..."
Through a terse unveiling of the supernatural facts shown by the 12th-verse-of-Revelations-chapter-19, the people of planet Earth are given enough info to know that "the name of Jesus" remains the best kept military secret this old world has ever not-known. Earthly military men only wish they could keep a secret so well. The name of Jesus is written somewhere and it is a name "that no man knows but He Himself."
These are supernatural facts: The Son of man is Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ of God. The Christ of God has a "name written" that is as yet unknown to any other man besides Himself. For more than a few citizens of this old world, the pure audacity of this supernatural phenomenon is too much to bear.
Forms of religion, including institutions of "christianity" attempt to give devotees the solace of certainty in an uncertain world. Religious institutions such as Islam, Buddhism, and Christianity attempt to quantify mystical concepts and certain yearnings which thrive in the heart and mind of every living Soul.
People are often confused by "religion." It takes courageous imagination to begin realizing that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit have nothing whatsoever to do with any humanist notion of "religion." The so-called "trinity" is the ground and source not of "religion" but of Life Itself.
Present-day institutions of "christianity," were built around the adventure and influence of a particular person; an unlikely child born into unlikely circumstances who, by Himself, turned the perceptions of human life into new and revolutionary modes of thought, speech, and action.
The Christ of God made no arguments about Himself. He simply declared the facts: "I am the way. I am the truth. I am the life. No man comes to the Father [God] except through me. When you have seen me, you have seen the Father."
Humanist institutions of power rise and fall. The Christ of God is no "institution" and the Adventure of Christ in the Earth has no parallel in human history. No other male or female of the human race has ever spoken or acted with the authority and influence that Jesus wields to this day.
Driving back the terrors of this splendid, uncertain world has been appointed to One, and only One. That One is known in the vernacular as Jesus of Nazareth. This Jesus "has a name written that no man knows but He Himself...and in [perfect] righteousness He does judge and make war."
The future is assured. "And wisdom is vindicated of her children."
