People are attracted to power. It’s human nature. But we should ask, is it power of the flesh or power of the Spirit? Is it power from God or power from Satan? Today we look at the power of one man… one name.
What’s in a name? Well, it’s all about who the name represents. As a Christian, when we pray in the name of Jesus, We are referring to the Son of God, the Messiah of the world, and the power and authority His name represents. God Himself chose the name Jesus because it represented what Jesus would accomplish for all of mankind.
But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” Matthew 1:20-23.
ONLY Jesus has paid for the sins of the world. ONLY Jesus provides a way into relationship with God. ONLY Jesus fulfills the prophecies about the Messiah (the Savior of the world, the promised Anointed One). ONLY Jesus rose from the dead and then ascended into heaven. ONLY Jesus is prophesied to return to earth again for those who maintain their trust in Him.
That’s quite a resume. There is literally no other person who has ever lived or ever will live who can compete with Jesus. We sometimes become so “friendly” with Him that we stop “reverencing” Him. And we cease to recognize the power He embodies.
“And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” Matthew 21:44.
I find it interesting that those in the Satanic church–followers of the fallen angel Lucifer–are afraid of only one person–Jesus. They are against one name–Jesus. His name is the name they will not speak unless it is in a curse. Jesus alone is the name by which demons are still cast out of a person. It is the single name that has become a dividing line between being born-again or being persecuted as intolerant.
“Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11.
There is no other name in as the name Jesus Ultimately, we are told through scripture, that worshipping Jesus will be the dividing line for life or death. It will be considered the ultimate rebellion against the New World Order and Antichrist to believe in and worship Jesus. How could that be if there was not something powerful in that name?
When people are raised up in church and accustomed to religious perception, it can be challenging to move past the religion and in to relationship. But it is absolutely necessary to do that in order to access all that the name Jesus provides.
As the end of this current world order draws near, there is one name… one person… who can safely guide us through. It is Jesus! But we must know Him personally. We must personally become familiar with what His name embodies. Let’s look at what Jesus said about Himself.
Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.” As the bread of life, Jesus provides the sustenance we need for survival and life. Jesus goes even further and becomes our sustenance as he offers his body and blood as represented in the Lord’s Supper. (John 6:35, 48, 51; Luke 22:19; Psalm 57:1; Isaiah 61:10).
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.” Jesus provides us with spiritual enlightenment of truth that invites us to be born again. In the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, he provides us with “a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path” to help us walk in the grace, truth, and wisdom. (John 8:12, 9:5; Psalm 119:105; John 14:9).
Jesus said, “I am the door of the sheep.” This is one of two I AM statements in which Jesus identifies believers as His sheep. The metaphor is not a flattering one. Rather, it is a realistic assessment of our helpless position. Sheep are characteristically needy, temperamental, wayward, and vulnerable creatures. Jesus responds to the fragile estate of the sheep by offering himself as their gateway to the care, comfort, healing, and guidance they (we) desperately need (John 10:7, 9).
Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd.” As the good shepherd, Jesus again offers himself as provider and protector of His sheep (John 10:11, 14). In Him we find rest from our weariness, a balm for our wounds, and the cure for whatever ails us. As the Good Shepherd, He lays down his very life for us to ensure our care, protection, and flourishing. He is the definition of a servant-leader and a heroic, self-donating champion.
Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life.” In His historic and bodily resurrection from the dead, of which over five hundred claimed to be eyewitnesses, Jesus demonstrated His power and resolve to conquer death, which is our greatest fear and enemy. In Jesus, death is put to death, and with it, the spirit of slavery that leads to fear.
His resurrection becomes a prophetic example of our future, in which there will be no more death, mourning, crying, or pain and everything will be made new. This promised future will be one of everlasting life. (John 11:25; 1 Corinthians 15:6; Romans 8:15; Revelation 21:1-8; 1 John 3:2).
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” Nowhere does Jesus present Himself as one of many ways to God, as if there were multiple options. Rather, He presents Himself as the way to God, as the only qualified mediator between a holy God and a sinful humanity. He is the one name given by which we can be saved from the effects of sin, guilt, sorrow, and fear. Jesus, and only Jesus, can provide ultimate protection from all that is broken and tragic in the world, in human systems, in other people, and in ourselves. Only in Him do we find truth which leads to life. (John 14:6; 1 Timothy 2:5; Acts 4:12).
Jesus said, “I am the true vine.” As the true vine, Jesus is our life source. Apart from Him, we can do nothing and have no eternal life within us. But with him, we can run against a the most powerful enemy and accomplish what the world calls impossible. Whether living in plenty or in want, in joy or in sorrow, in sickness or in health, we can do all things through Christ the vine, who gives us strength (John 15:1; Psalm 18:28; Philippians 4:13).
We must each approach God as an individual–humble, seeking… trusting in Jesus as our way to God. “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6.
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12.
With God nothing is impossible!
