One of the greatest ways God demonstrated His love to man is the privileged access to the name of Jesus. Philippians 2:9-11 (GNB)1 says “For this reason God raised him to the highest place above and gave him the name that is greater than any other name. And so, in honor of the name of Jesus all beings in heaven, on earth, and in the world below will fall on their knees, and all will openly proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”.
God gave Jesus this mighty name above all names for the benefit of those who will believe in Him. The name of Jesus is the only guaranteed access to requesting and receiving anything from God. Jesus said “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” (Joh 14:13 KJV2 ).
Everyone who believes in the name of Jesus has the opportunity to use the name of Jesus and get results. The name of Jesus has the power to drive out demons and all powers of satan. Healings happen at the mention of this name.
Another miraculous thing the name of Jesus does is that, it shields those who believe in it. It’s a strong tower that has the capacity of shielding you in times of trouble (Proverbs 18:10).
But as powerful as the name of Jesus is, it only works for those who are living their lives for God; those who have surrendered their lives to Jesus. There were seven sons of Sceva who wanted to use the name of Jesus to cast out demons, but because they were not living their lives for God, here is what the evil spirit said… “Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?”. The evil spirit destroyed them not because the name of Jesus wasn’t powerful, but because they were not qualified to use the name (Act 19:13-16).
Today, I am giving you an open invitation to become qualified to use the name of Jesus and get results by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Pray this prayer now…
Lord Jesus, come into my life. I believe that you died for my sins and rose on the third day. I accept You today as my Lord and Saviour. Forgive me my sins and write my name in the book of life. Help me to serve You till the end. Amen
If you pray this prayer, I am happy to let you know that, the name of Jesus will start working for you from today. To continue in this life of victory, you need a bible and consistent fellowship with other Christians in a bible based church. God bless you
