The Name of Jesus – a name like no other. People get saved, healed, and delivered by that Name – the Name that’s above every name that is named. His Name is above sickness, disease, bondage, depression, poverty, sin, and a host of other things, all of which can be named.
Philippians 2:9-11 (KJV) 9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
It should really read THE NAME instead of a name. The Name of Jesus has within itself, enough power to do whatever Jesus did while He was here on earth. In fact, when you use the name of Jesus for salvation, healing, deliverance, etc., you are actually doing what Jesus would do if He were here in person.
You see, according to the Greek translation, we have been given power of attorney to use His name to effect a healing and a cure and whatever else we need! How ‘bout that!
Remember, the Name of Jesus was so powerful that the disciples were forbidden to speak in that Name. Of course, they righteously objected and continued to see signs, wonders, and miracles when they used the Name of Jesus.
Acts 4:18-20 (KJV) 18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.
20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.
The Name of Jesus is not a cliché that we tack onto the end of our prayers. Oh no! His Name has power in it. Let me give you some scriptures.
The Name of Jesus in salvation
Acts 4:12 (KJV) 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Romans 10:9-10 (KJV) 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
The Name of Jesus is healing
Acts 3:6 (KJV) 6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
Acts 9:34 (KJV) 34 And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
Acts 16:18 (KJV) 18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
John 14:12-14 (KJV) 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Here we see that when we ask in Jesus’ Name – which means to make a demand on the promises of God, He will do it! Awesome!
Philemon 1:6 (KJV) 6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. [Communication means the transfer of your faith.]
You see, the disciples knew what they had in their re-born spirits and they simply released that healing power by using the Name of Jesus and it effected a healing and a cure. We have been given Jesus’ Name to do the same thing.
The Name of Jesus in Prayer
John 16:23-24 (KJV) 23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Here we see that when we ask [make a demand on God’s promises] the Father in the Name of Jesus, He will give it to us! Of course, all this is contingent upon asking according to God’s will, which is His Word.
Power in the Name of Jesus
Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV) 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Luke 10:19 (KJV) 19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
We have legal right to use the Name of Jesus because He has given that power and authority to us.
Thanksgiving in the Name of Jesus
Hebrews 13:15 (KJV) 15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
Oh, how blessed we are to be able to continually give praise and thanksgiving to our Father God in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior!
We truly are blessed above all the people on the face of the earth! Praise the Lord of Glory!
