Understanding The Power in the Name of Jesus


To the rest of the world the name of Jesus means nothing but to the biblical Christianity the name of master key to all problems. It is a the greatest asset to a believer. The name of Jesus is not just a mere pause in prayer, it can be used to dislodge every mountains (oppositions) confronting you. The name got its omnipotence and almightiness by prophecies. Take a look at this prophecy:

Jesus got the almightiness of his name by prophecy

“For into us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting father, the Prince of peace.”Is.9:6.

The power in the name of Jesus

That name can be used to invoke all attributes it carry. The is name is called wonderful, it can be used to invoke signs and wonders. It is Counsellor. Counselor established every enterprise in the realm of existence, A believer is expected to use the name to manifest counsel; it is mighty, there is might in the name; and there is peace in the name; a believer who would not hold his peace and stand still should not expect God to intervene into the affairs of his life.

The bearer of a name manifest after the his name: Nabal, the husband of Abigail, he lived up to his name and died foolish.

“For as his name is so is he; Nabal is his name and folly is with him.” 1.Sam.25:25

During Jesus earthly ministry, he changed the name of His disciples to suit their duties. The sons of Zebedee who were surnamed Boarberges – by interpretation, Boarberges means the sons of thunder – were changed to James and John. Simon Peter was changed to Cephas which means stone.

“And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation A stone.” Jn.1:42

In another Prophecy,

There shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of its root.” Is.11:1

The major object in this prophecy cannot be mistaken. The rod served as a reference to Jesus. Now cast your mind back to Exodus. God told him:

“And thou shalt take this rod in thy hand wherewith thou shall do signs.” Ex.4:17

Without the rod Moses was powerless and incapacitated, he was just like any other person in Egypt, he couldn’t move an ant. But with rod he became a terror to Pharaoh and whole land of Egypt. With the rod,  the magicians rods were swallowed. It turned serpents. When he stretched it towards the rivers of Egypt, the water turned to blood. When he pointed it to the sky thunder, hail and fire was the result. It was with the rod that he parted the Red sea for the children of Israel to cross over. Everything moses wanted came to be with rod.

The name is the greatest asset in the life of any believer, you can use it to dislodge any evil hanging over your life, family and business. Don’t just call the name, use it.

And Peter said silver and gold I have not; but such as I have give I thee: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” Acts.3:6

That lame man was expecting cash strapped from Peter and other disciples but they have something greater than cash. Peter pulled the trigger, in the name of Jesus rise up and walk and miracle exploded.

 

Revealing the Secret of Biblical Instruction (Part Three)


I shared with us the first and second segments of the topic yesterday. Just In case you’ve missed the previous segments you can visit the previous posts on the topic.

Today, I would be sharing with us the way we can follow the bible instruction.

Releasing the secret of the biblical instrution

How Can I Follow The Bible Instruction?

1). Follow the bible instruction by praying for lost to be converted to Christ with a minimum of one hour daily either at a stretch or in a split of two to three sessions based on your schedules. Prayer has proven to be the sharpest sickle of harvest. Your family member who is still following the devil can be turned by your prayer.

Prayer provides a software for a lifetime service’s platform. “And she was a widow of about four score and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.” Lk.2:37

Prayer has proven to be one of the most rewarding platform of service. “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy father which is in the secret; and thy father which seeth in the secret shall reward thee openly.” Mat.6:6.

Prayer doesn’t only changes things, it changes people. “As he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.” Lk.9:29.

A prayer house is a power house. The only language that the devil understand is prayer (not grammars).

2). Follow the bible instruction by involving in the chosen fast. “Is this not the fast I have chosen? To loose the bands of the wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke.” Is.58:6.

There are forces of hell that will not let you free until you fast. Fasting is not an advice, fasting is a commandment. “When thou fastest.” Mat.6:17. Apart from the chosen fast, be inspired to fast.

Fasting is not a punishment. It is the fastening of our body in order to strengthen our inner man (Spirit).

Every genuine child of God carries a greater potential than men of the old. If you want to do more than what Jesus did, then you must engage in fasting and prayer. It is the prayer that you offers in the fast that God answers, not the fasting. Fasting without prayer is just a mere punishment.

“And Jesus said unto them this kind come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” Mark.29:9.

c). Follow the bible instruction by getting involved in the Soul winning mandate. It is very rampant this days to hear people say, “I don’t have the gift of soul winning.” (Error in reasoning).

Soul winning is neither a talent nor a gift. It is a commandment for everyone called believer. God has ordained every believer as a soul hunter.

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye ask of the father in my name, he will gives unto you.” Jn.15:16.

Any profession that you choose which can’t allows you to preach the gospel is not a profession, It is toiling. You better watch out for what you choose as discipline. You run a hotel or sell cigarette or weed and can’t preach to gospel as a result, you are under the  influence and manipulation of the enemy. In fact, you’re in serious danger.

Take this scripture has a yardstick of measurement for chosen your career.

The spirit of the lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.” Lk.4:18.

If your job doesn’t allow you to carry out the functions specified in the above scripture, find something else to do. Or else, you will be toiling in life like the vicious cycle of poverty.

d). Let praise becomes a part and parcel of you. Let it becomes your lifestyle. Don’t just do it occasionally, but do it regularly. I repeat myself, do it regularly. Praise is a commandment (Psalm. 150:6). Appreciation equals multiplication (Jer.30:19).

e). Follow the instruction of giving – Financial empowerment doesn’t answers to neither  fasting nor prayer, It answers to the commandment of thiting (Mal.3:10). It answers to the commandment of giving and receiving, seed time and harvest time. That is the secret. Develop yourself to the point if  giving all the tenth part of your income.

Support and help the less privileged and the poor in terms of your money and materials. Helping the poor is like lending to the Lord (PS.41:1).

Solomon who offered the largest burnt offerings in history became the richest man that the world has ever known. That is the secret. Abraham entertained angels with cow unknown, same Abraham became the father’s of many nations – same Abraham took his only son and ready to offers him as sacrifice –  If you’re the type who will hide food under your bed when visitors will come in, repent! That is the reason why you’re poor.

e). Lastly, Don’t just the  follow bible instructions,  follow them with faith. Believe that you are not serving God for nothing, but you are serving God for something. Be expectant in your engagement. The devil testified that Job did not fear God for nothing.

The Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?” Job.1:9.

Serving God is not a waste of time. There are rewards involved.  “I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain.” Is.45:19. Faith is not a risk, unbelieve is a risk. Without faith, it impossible to receives anything from God (Heb.11:6).

 

*I believe you’ve been blessed by this post, why don’t you spread the good news to your families and friends, and you’ll be glad you did so.
