Some people ask “Why can’t you leave JESUS out of it? ” ‘Why do you have to use his name?” “Why cant’ you just say God,and speak of God’s love and do it in God’s name?” Well these are God’s conditions and not ours. JESUS is the only one you can approach God through. He is our intercessor, our High Priest.“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;“ (1Timothy 2:5). JESUS is the only one who ever died for our sins and rose from the dead, and can give you power to overcome death at the rapture. JESUS is the Only Begotten Son of God. Born of a virgin.The Bible says,“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men ,where by we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12). “JESUS saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).”And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” (John 14:13). We are to pray in his name, cast out devils in his name, heal in his name, preach in his name. Without the name of JESUS CHRIST there is no power. Everything we have is in JESUS name. “Whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he will give it you.” (John I6:23b). Expect miracles, and in the name of JESUS you will have them! “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21). Look how much emphasis the early disciples in the book of Acts put on the name of JESUS ! That’s all they preached and talked about, JESUS ! And that’s the name they did all those miracles in, JESUS ! And that’s the name they won so much of the world in, JESUS ! And that’s the name we will win the world in too, JESUS ! It’s JESUS that counts. “JESUS CHRIST the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8). JESUS is the most important name in all of creation! Without the name of JESUS you can’t get into heaven or out of hell ! There is something about that name. It is the most soothing, comforting, and peaceful name that I have ever heard. JESUS is the sweetest name I know, and he is just the same as his precious name.The devil and his demons hate the name of JESUS and flee from it. “That at the name of JESUS every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10,11). “And JESUS came and spake unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and earth.” (Matthew 28:18). The Power of the name of JESUS is more power than all of man’s atomic and nuclear bombs put together, and the power of the sun, and all the power of all creation put together. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).“And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” (Revelation 19:13). JESUS is the Word of God. “And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us,(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14). “for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” (Psalms 138:2b).“And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:16). “Then Peter said, Sliver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of JESUS CHRIST of Nazareth rise up and walk.” (Acts 3:6). “AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED.” (Acts 2:21).You can accomplish things in his name! Are you using the power he has given you through his name?
Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
