The Name of Jesus

“The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe” (Prov 18:10; NKJV). In Philippians 2 verse 9, we learn that the name of Jesus is above every other name. There is tremendous power in the name of Jesus and we have been authorized to use that name. Jesus taught His disciples, “Whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you” (John 15:16; CSB). In other words, when we pray, we address our prayers to God the Father in the name of Jesus, because Jesus is our mediator. We read again in John 14:13 (NLT), “You can ask for anything in My name and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.” (See also John 16:24).
When Jesus gave the last commission, He said that it was in His name that believers would see signs accompanying them (Mark 16:17,18). Earlier in His earthly ministry Jesus had sent out 72 disciples to preach and minister, “The seventy-two returned with joy, saying “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name” (Luke 10:17; CSB). In Acts 3:6 the apostles Peter and John healed a lame man outside the temple, commanding him to walk in the name of Jesus. When the apostle Paul was totally exasperated by a girl possessed by a demon that caused her to tell peoples fortunes, he said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And instantly it left her.” (Acts 16:18; NLT) We are also told by the writer of Romans that, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom 10:13; ESV). Use the power and authority of the name of Jesus today!
