The Mystery In The Name Of Jesus


A picture of Jesus


The name of Jesus is not just a pause or a comma in prayers. Understanding the mysteries in the name of Jesus will put you in command of your destiny. God has given us a name that’s above all other names. Whatsoever that has a name answers to the authority in the name of Jesus. This is a divine setting. Be it sickness or disease; failure or hunger as far as it has a name, it must bow to the name of Jesus.

“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him and given him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things in earth, and things under the earth.—Philippians.2:12-13.

You can use the name of Jesus to give your life a new shape; you can use It to turn your business, marriage, and career around in 360 degrees.

Be mindful of the name you name your children. People tend to exhibit the attributes of the name given to them. That’s why so many biblical heroes had to change their names to suit their offices.

Remember Peter used to be known as Simon, which means a shaking reed.  When Simon (a reed) became Peter (the rock), the giant in him awoke. He became Peter the rock and that fit the ruggedness of his office.

We can find the prophecy about the birth of a messiah in the book of Isaiah.

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. His government and its peace will never end.”—Isiah.9:6-7.


Below are the mysteries behind the Name of Jesus:

(1)  His Name is Wonderful
(2)  His name is wisdom
(3)  His name is mighty
(4)  His name is eternal
(5)  His name is peaceful

His name is wonderful – Most of the attributes of the name of Jesus are mentioned in Isaiah.9, they manifest themselves into reality when you use the name of Jesus. The name of Jesus is full of wonders. It can heal the sick,  liberate the poor, oppressed and raise the dead. This list is endless. It’s very vital to understand the values that the name carries.

There is wisdom in the name of Jesus – The scripture mentioned counsel as part of the attributes of the name of Jesus. Counsel is a part and parcel of Wisdom. You can’t talk about counsel without talking about wisdom. Wisdom is applied knowledge. Counsel is solving human problems with applicable scriptures. Understand this value that you have in the name of Jesus. Even a child knows Jesus is wise. At 12, he was teaching the elites, they were marveled at the magnitude of his wisdom.

His name is mighty – The supremacy of the name of Jesus was proven in a conquest between Elijah and the prophets of the Baal; the yardstick of measurement was a fire. If God is the real God, let fire come down from heaven; If Baal is the veritable god or not, let fire come down. The Baal agents carried out their best but all their efforts were futile. The God that answers by fire responded with a consuming fire. And that settled the case. Thus the supremacy of  God was established.

Another scene took place in Pharaoh’s court, it was a saga between Aaron’s rod and the rods of the sorcerers. The original and the counterfeit. The rod of Aaron turned to a serpent, and the rod of the magicians also turned to serpents. But the serpent of Aaron swallowed all the serpents of the magician. Thus, proving the supremacy of God. Here, you must be sensitive about miracles. Not all miracles are genuine. Some are traditional magic. The magician rods also turned to serpents. (See Exodus.7:9-12)

Understand that the rod symbolizes the name of Jesus. And there shall come forth a rod out of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots  (Jesus is the rod). With the rod in Moses’ hands, diverse signs and wonders occurred. The rod departed the red sea; water gushed out from the rock; the rod rained tempest and hails upon the Egyptians. Understand that you have a rod in your hands to perform signs and wonders.

The name of Jesus is eternal – His name carries everlasting value that is beyond this world.

Peace – In a restless world, the only place where you can find a genuine rest is in Jesus. There is a lot of jostling and bustling here and there. Consciously or unconsciously, even believers are caught in the web. Until surrender to Jesus, and leave the ring of unrest, the journey will always rough.

Final Thoughts

  • The name of Jesus is not a mere pause in prayers; it carries the attributes mentioned in Isaiah’s prophecy.
  • The name of Jesus is wonderful. The bible says you shall do signs with the name of Jesus.
  • His name is mighty. Jesus was sent to be great (Luke.1:26-38). He said, as my father sent me, so I sent you (to be great). The supremacy of the name of Jesus was established in a contest between Elijah and the prophets of the Baal and between Moses, Aaron, and magicians. The serpent of Aaron swallowed the serpent of the magicians, proven the supremacy of God.
  • The name of Jesus has an eternal value.
  • The most peaceful place in the world right now is the kingdom. Run to Him today. Tomorrow might be too late.

The Power In The Blood Jesus



To overcome the enemy in the battle of life, first, you must understand the mystery that’s behind the power in the blood of Jesus. I realize that some doctrines forbid the usage of blood. Out of sheer ignorance, some denominations in the body of Christ hold such a paralytic belief.

Understand this: the blood of Jesus is your last card of overcoming the enemy in the invincible battles of life. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Revelation.12:11)

How Do I Use the Blood?

By Pleading the blood- you can overcome any unwanted habit that does not conform to the will of God by pleading the blood of Jesus. For instance, maybe you are a drunkard who wants to stop drinking but the forces behind the habit won’t allow you. You can plead the blood whenever you’re craving for a drink by saying “by the blood of Jesus, I refuse to drink” The same goes for smokers, fornicators, adulterers, etc. You may plead the blood for a defense. Simple phrases like “I’m covered by the blood of Jesus,” “my family is covered by the blood of Jesus,” “my children are covered by the blood of Jesus,” can go a long way to exempt you from the horrors of darkness.

By sprinkling the blood- you can put your business, Job and career, academics, marriage, and finances under divine covering by sprinkling the blood to their point of contact. You don’t have to go to Rome to get the blood of Jesus. Just get yourself a pail of water and blessed it.  You can pray that God should turn the water to His blood. Then, sprinkle the water in your office, business place, house, business card, Exam ID card, and other items as you wish. You can sprinkle people, places, and things; depending on the areas you want to triumph over the forces of darkness (Leviticus. 8:30). Note, you can also use anointing oil. Buy a bottle of anointing oil, blessed it yourself, and anoint yourself, your children, the point of contact to your business, career, education, etc.

A scriptural quote (Psalm.105:13-14)

By drinking the blood- you can drink from the water that you have blessed or just take a shot of the anointing oil. This will turn your gene, DNA to Jesus’ gene and DNA. Therefore, whatever that cannot be found in Jesus is not permitted to be found in you.

Final Thoughts

  • Using the blood of Jesus to secure triumph over the power of the enemy is meant for all. Nothing is mystical about it. All believers are ordained as prophets (Jeremiah.1:5). And all believers are sent to perform signs and wonders. These are parts of our mandates (Luke.10:9).
  • Listen: It’s not the water neither the oil that helps you to overcome the enemy fighting against your destiny. It’s the faith content in you that makes it work. The pail of water and the anointing oil only serve as channels where the power in the blood of Jesus flows. It’s the level of your faith in the process that causes the miraculous to explode. Remember, Jesus always says be it to you according to your faith. It was not the faith of Jesus that heals, but your faith. Jesus cannot heal you without your faith in place (nobody can believe for you).
  • The mystery of the Passover blood will exempt you from the things that afflict others. Remember how it exempted the Israelites from the plagues that affected the Egyptians. Others can be sick; you are not permitted to be sick. Your case and my case are different. What affects others is not permitted to affect us. The blood can mark us out from the scourge of afflictions.
