My name is power–ready for your use at any given time–needed.
Demons shudder at My name–Jesus! Use it wrongfully and you should shudder. It would be as if bowing to a king with mockery on your face, but even more, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” Deuteronomy 5:11
And yet, I honor you. I give you My name.
Do you delight to have My name on your lips or are you embarrassed to speak it? Do you speak it in honor and praise or as an expletive? At a moment of crisis, do you call upon that Name or is it used to prevent a crisis?
There is more power in My name on your tongue than any weapon man has created.
- My name can cause a miracle before your eyes.
- My name can bring a man back to life.
- My name knows no bounds and is effective from your tongue, to places you cannot see.
“”And now, Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to thy servants to speak thy word with all boldness, while thou stretchest out thy hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of thy holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God with boldness.” Acts 4:29-31
Do you see?
I AM the power that backs that name–Jesus!
“But many of those who heard the word believed; and the number of the men came to about five thousand.” “And when they had set them in the midst, they inquired, “By what power or by what name did you do this?” Acts 4:4,7
Do you understand what can be done if everyone understood this?
More than you can possibly imagine. So much more!
I AM Jesus!
I AM That Name!
“Thus says the Lord: ‘Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practice steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth; for in these things I delight, says the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23-24
“There is none like thee, O Lord; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.” “It is he who made the earth by his power, who established the world by his wisdom, and by his understanding stretched out the heavens.” Jeremiah 10:6,12
“Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this in mind among yourselves, which you have in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross.
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:4-11
“And now I am no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.” John 17:11
“Then he showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
There shall no more be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall worship him; they shall see his face, and his name shall be on their foreheads.
And night shall be no more; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light and they shall reign for ever and ever.” Revelation 22:1-5
“For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power.” I Corinthians 4:20
