The Name of Jesus
We must look to the scripture at rightly divide the Word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 you have to take time to look for yourself and study to grow in Christ spiritually. This responsibility is our not our Pastor or Sunday school teacher.
The name of Jesus belongs to the Church because the Church is the body of Christ today in the earth to accomplish His will before He returns.
When Jesus arose from the dead He defeated and disarmed the devil,…..
Revelation 1:18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Those in authority have the keys or are the authorized one who delegate this authority to the persons under them.
And Just before Jesus ascended to be seated at the right hand of the Father, Jesus said,…
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [Power means Authority]
Then He immediately gave the church delegating this authority in the earth to the Church,…
Mat 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Mat 28:20 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.
And again in Mark
Mar 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
All Believers have been delegated the use of the Name of Jesus in this earth for today. His Name is above every other name. Phi 2:9, Matt 16:19, 18:18, John 14:12, Eph 1:20,2:6.
The Name stands for the Person, Jesus with His resurrected body is there at the right hand of the Father. But, that Name has all the authority, all the power, all the dignity, all the majesty, and all the glory that Jesus the Person has. And we are His body, the head and the body are one.
In my life I did not know this until I received the baptism in the Holy Ghost, then I had the power in me. (See Act 1:8)
You too can have this Power and Authority to use Jesus in prayer and praise and worship, and against all the power of the enemy. Luke 10:19
It is our responsibility to pray for those in authority of our nation and exercise or God give authority in the Name of Jesus. 1 Timothy 2:1-4. We are victorious because of Jesus and His finished work and we
Will rule and reign in His Name. Amen
