The Power Behind The Name Of Jesus

Today, whatever you ask the Father in Jesus’ name will be done. You may be thinking “I have prayed and asked in Jesus’ name but I still haven’t seen the results.” Read John 16: 22-23

Jesus was not talking about pleading or begging, the word “ask” in these verses in the original Greek means “a demand of something due”, this does not mean that we are to go around demanding and ordering God to do whatever we please. In his name, we are to request what legally belongs to us as a result of the victory Christ has already won.

Asking in the name of Jesus is more than simply repeating the words “in the name of Jesus”. When you know what is behind the name – the authority that belongs to you, your legal right to use that name, the power that resides in that name. When you use it you are not praying or begging, you are invoking – putting into operation the power to bring about what you desire. There will be no question, no doubt, that it will be done.

When Peter said to the lame man, “such as I have give I thee: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk!” – Acts 3:16. He was not praying, pleading or asking, Peter knew Jesus had defeated Satan and the power of sickness. As he spoke the Name of Jesus, he was invoking, putting into operation the power to bring about the healing. Peter did not face this sickness in his own strength or in his own name. The man was not healed because of the great faith Peter had. The lame man was healed because Peter knew the power and authority he had in Jesus’ name and used it!

Stop for a moment, think about Jesus and all that He is:

He is Yahweh Jehovah, the Eternal God, the Alpha and the Omega.

He is Jehovah Elohim, the self-existent Creator.

He is El Shaddai, the Almighty, all sufficient God.

He is Jehovah-Repheka, our Healer.

He is Jehovah-Nissi, our Conqueror.

He is our Savior.

He is our Baptizer.

He is our Shepherd.

He is the Resurrection and the Life!

You have been given a glimpse of Jesus as he is today, seated at the right hand side of the Father in a position of supreme authority over all things.

Think about the power he possesses:

He is above all rule, authority, dominion and every name that is named. All things are in subjection to him, everything in heaven, on earth and beneath the earth must obey him.

Now, are you ready for this? All that Jesus is and all the power and authority he possesses are in his name! All the fullness of the Godhead is in his name.

There is healing in his name! There is creative power in his name! There is deliverance in his name! Everything we need is in his name!

When you call upon the name of Jesus, you invoke, put into operation, the power and authority that is in that name to manifest the healing, deliverance, whatever you need. When you speak his name in faith, he is there. He manifests himself through his name.

Just as Jesus faced Satan with all of heaven backing him up, when you go out into battle, in Jesus’ name, Jesus and all the power and authority of heaven is backing that name. Think about that, as you go out into battle in Jesus’ name, the great “I AM”, the Alpha and Omega, the Creator, God Almighty; Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God is with you to back up whatever you ask in his name.

As you face sickness in your body, you can request what legally belongs to you as a result of the victory Jesus has already won. There is no need for you to plead or beg. If you need healing, claim it in Jesus’ name, say in faith, without doubting “in Jesus’ name I claim the healing that rightfully belongs to me”. When you speak his name, Jehovah-Repheka (the Healer) will be there to heal you!

If you are facing financial problems and you don’t see any possible way out in the natural, claim what you need, what rightfully belongs to you in Jesus’ name. Say in faith, without doubting, “In Jesus’ name I claim the finance I need”. As you speak the name of Jesus, Jehovah-Jireh (your provider) will be there to meet that need. Then go in faith knowing that it will be done.

When you are in a dangerous situation, on a dark street, speak the name of Jesus and he will be there. Remember everything in heaven, on earth and in hell must obey the name of Jesus!

Go in Jesus’ name, God has not planned any defeats for you! I pray that you will meditate on what you have learned and that you will apply it to your life.

I love you my Jesus.

    I strongly believe that there is more to the name of Jesus than any spiritual literature cloud state. Its when we get to heaven we will know the true worth of his name, and by than it will be too late.the importance of His name cannot be over emphasize.

    Whether you accept the name Jesus Christ or not, it is above an existence and non-existence. God has highly not high ooo but highly exalted the name Jesus. Im proud of that NAME. Have faith in
    the name. Amen

      Yes, there is power in the name of Jesus Christ, in that name there is power he has given us to exercise for His glory. He was bruised that we might have peace, he was lashed and we were healed, those that get it are healed in His Holy name.
