Power in the name Jesus
Since the beginning of time, many great names have appeared among humanity, such as Abraham, meaning "Father of a multitude" who became the father of all nations, because he dared to believe God and He credited his faith as righteousness. (Romans 4:3 ) His great name will be remembered and talked about throughout every generation. yet! his name could never deliver us from the sin business.
Then, there is Moses, meaning, "drawn out"; he was born in a troubled time, where God spared his life as a child, and raised him to be a great Prophet, lawgiver, and deliver. God talked to him face to face like a man speak to his friend, ( Exodus 33:11), but, his name could not bring us salvation.
Then the name Elijah, meaning, "the lord is my God" He showed up on God's time clock to Prophetical help the Nation of Israel and bring them back to God, they had backslidden, and was worshipping false gods, when he stepped into biblical history and did mighty exploits for God, and through him many miracles were done.
He was disqualified from delivering us from the horrible penalty of sin, because of the bloodline of Adam. (Romans 5:12). And there are many other great names, which are too numerous to mention.
None of these names were able to deliver lost humanity from the penalty of sin, as great as they were. (Romans 6:23).
Only, one name given among mankind is able, to save a dying soul, heal wounded spirits, comfort lonely broken hearts, and that is the Powerful, beautiful, majestic name of Jesus( Acts 4:12) "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
He was not born of the will of man, and his sinful bloodline(St John 1:13), and because of his holy sinless, and precious blood God his highly exalted him and given him a name above every name that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord ( Phil 2:10).
He assures us that "whatsoever ye ask in my name that will he do," (John14: 13) Also, Jesus said, " And these signs shall follow all of them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues take up serpents, and if they drink any deathly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." ( Mark 16:17,18).
He wants us to have full confidence and blessed assurance, that he will honor his name and do just what said he would do.
So, every believer in Christ Jesus has the right to use this mighty name against all the trickery of Satan. So, let us use the name to live in total victory over all the attacks of our adversary.
