Have you ever considered the Biblical power within the name, Jesus? I get the fact that many misuse it. I also get the fact that many do not understand the power within such a name. I really do not think people realize the degree of victory that comes with operating in the name of Jesus.
Philippians 2:5-11 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 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 the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The first thing that we need to see is the Purpose of the Name. Jesus was a name given to him by God. He was not conceived by man nor was he named by man. He was named by God. The name Jesus literally means “Jehovah is Savior”. His name was given to him because his purpose was to bring salvation to humanity. His name reveals his purpose as the savior.
The second thing we notice is the Position of the Name. God gave him a name that is positioned above every name. I find it amazing at the process by which he earned such a lofty position. Jesus was selfless, a servant, and then became a sacrifice. This is normally not the credentials that one would use in order to build a name for themselves. In this we are taught a valuable lesson that promotion only comes from God. If you want to be exalted by God then we all had better get real humble. That is why he says “let this mind be in you.” We are to operate with the same kind of mindset.
The last thing we want to focus on is the Power of the Name. There is tremendous power in the name, Jesus. First comes the power to submit. Under the authority of the name, Jesus, powers in heaven, earth, and under the earth will bow and confess him as Lord. His name has the power to bring forces of evil under His subjection. It is at his name that Satan and his demons tremble. Secondly, comes the power to save. Romans 10:13 says teaches us that whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. There is nothing more powerful and miraculous than a persons salvation. It is at that name that souls are saved. It is at that name that life transformation occurs.
There’s not a name like name Jesus.
