The name of Jesus
Text: Philippians 2:9-10
“Wherefore God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every other name; that at the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth and things under the earth.”
The name of Jesus is the name that has power and authority over everything that exists. That is why Peter could say to the man that was impotent in his feet and had never walked from birth in Acts 3:16, “In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, rise up and work,” and the man leapt up and walked.
The name of Jesus is higher than the name of any sickness, as long as that sickness has a name, be it HIV, tuberculosis, typhoid or whatsoever; it’s subject to the name of Jesus.
• Things to know about the name of Jesus
• The Name of Jesus is a strong refuge. Proverbs 18:10 “The name of Jesus is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and are saved.” The power in the name of Jesus gives protection for those that believe in it. When you call the name in time of danger, Jesus shows up.
• You can have anything in the name of Jesus. John 16:23-24 “And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, what so ever ye shall ask the Father in my name, He will give it you.”
Jesus is the gateway to the Father (God) and His manifold blessings.
• Call the name of Jesus in faith. Acts 3:16 “And His name through faith had made this man strong, whom ye see and know…” If you call the name of Jesus with fear or unbelief, it won’t work. So, anytime you are using the name of Jesus, use it in faith, knowing that you’ll have the desired result.
You can’t use the name of Jesus, if you are not born again. You have to give your life to Jesus first before you can exercise the power in it.
In conclusion, the name of Jesus is higher, greater and more powerful than every other name that exists. There’s power in the name of Jesus. It’s the name above every name. So, learn to always call on the name of Jesus with confidence. Live in it, for it’s the name vested with all power.
