The Name of Jesus! (1)

I discussed the topic above with a friend some time ago, and I gained a lot from it.  And my experience made me to write some things about the name of Jesus, and cite instances that I am aware of, where it was evoked, with stunning results ensuing.  I am very excited to present this piece to you here.

First of all, the name of Jesus is one the most outstanding tools at the disposal of all Christians, and it prompts God to answer our prayers (John 16:23-24).  It is incredibly powerful, and it towers above all other names.  And when it is deployed against our enemies, it produces unbelievable results.  Apostle Paul attested to these facts as follows:  Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father’’(Philippians 2:9-11).  The name of Jesus also guarantees absolute safety (Proverb 18:10), and salvation through it, is incontestable (Acts 4:12).

At this point, you may wish to ask who swayed the Apostles into using the name of Jesus in the first instance.  Well, Jesus himself did!  In John 14:13, He said ”…. I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the son may bring glory to the father’’.  This passage is also applicable to us because Jesus Christ said ”…what I say to you (i.e. His disciples), I say to all(and that includes us)(Mark 13:37).   I am therefore not surprised that loads of Christians these days are using the name of Jesus to perform wonders globally.  Since it works for them, it will surely work for you too.  Amen.
