If we honor those that go before us, even those that ended poorly, we will have access to their anointing. We honor them because in honoring we get to draw upon what they bring to the table. If honor a prophet in name of prophet you receive a prophet's reward. If we don't remember our history, an area of prior strength later becomes a strong-hold where assaults are launched to mock the move of God. First and foremost, we must honor the Holy Spirit. God lit the fire on the altar, but a priest was responsible to keep it burning. Every revival began because of God, but every revival ended because of man. Fire always falls on sacrifice and stops falling when there is nothing on the altar.
