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.

Nuggets of Wisdom/Details (2 in 1 post)


Don’t rely on your father’s wealth if you don’t want to be poor.

If you’re not a worker, you’ll be a beggar.

Praise expands people (Jeremiah.30:19).

If you don’t obey the law, don’t expect people to buy it for a penny.

You don’t need a powerful job to make it in life, you just need to become a strong spirit man or woman. Whatever you do, you shall prosper.

Life. It’s a business (you’re making profits or recording losses). If you don’t do business with it, you’ll run bankrupt.

Poverty is not a cash strap, but a lack of creativity and productivity.

Sit at your work and people will honour you.

Don’t live for things, live for God, and people will seek to know you and things will follow you.

Beware of bending. Don’t fit God into your plan, make Him your plan.

Life happens when you’re busy doing some other things.

Anything can fail in life, obedience to scriptural instructions can never fail (Deut. 28:1).

You’re not created to meditate on your problems, but to meditate on God’s word (Joshua.1:8).

Members are registered, followers are made. Don’t just be a member of Christ’s family, be a follower of Christ.

There is nothing new under the sun, nothing you’re going through that someone has not experienced before. Seek for life coaches.

Everyone has an angel. Beware of what you say. Don’t say it’s an error before the angels. Angels bring your word to pass, whether positive or negative.

Give a man money or materials, he will finish them. But give him wisdom and knowledge, he has an inheritance.

Wealth gotten by vanity shall diminish. Wealth gathered by labour shall increase.

Time not well managed will be trashed. Energy not well managed will be wasted. Money not well managed will be squandered. You need management’s skills.

Any enterprise is built by wise planning, becomes strong through common sense, and profits wonderfully by keeping abreast of the facts.” – Proverbs.24:3-4; Living Bible.

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. – Socrates

There is always something you can do to get to where you want to be. You have done many things, but you have not done all things. Even a spark plug (as small as it is) can get your car grounded – no matter the size of its engine and the body. A student who fails in an exam doesn’t fail because he knows nothing. He scored 30; he got something. But not enough to make him pass the exam. Many are living with failure marks, claiming to know everything.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” – Hosea.4:6

“If you give a job to a novice, the result is a crisis.” – Oyedepo

“Information is a vehicle that drives vision. To be informed is to be transformed; to be uninformed is to be deformed.” – Oyedepo

We need to understand the place of details to maximize our destinies. It’s the quality of your knowledge that determines the quality of your results.

For instance, many people are in business knowing nothing about it. There are specialists in every field, consult their materials.


Let me use this opportunity to announce to us I’m working on my second book titled Praise Warriors – Understanding The Wonders Of A Praise Lifestyle.

understanding the wonders of a praise lifestyle

5 Reasons To Buy Into A Praise Lifestyle

(1) Divine presence

Divine presence makes the difference. God comes down Himself when we praise Him (Acts.16:25-26; 2.Chronicles.5:13). You don’t make things happen; divine presence makes them come to be. Praise is where God lives (Psalm.22:3). If you want to see God, praise Him.

(2) Freedom from satanic oppression

If you’re not depressed, you cannot be oppressed. The devil’s strategy is to first depress you to oppress you. It’s impossible to be joyful and be fretful at the same time. Praise is the only cure for depression and oppression (Is.52:2-3).

(3) It guarantees your access to divine intervention

You can pray amiss, but you can’t praise amiss. Not all prayers qualify for answers. Unlike prayer, you don’t need to quote any scripture to praise God. Just praise (Mat.6:7). Fearful praise will always provoke the release of supernatural intervention any day, anytime, anywhere.

“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.” (Acts.16:25-26)

(4) It’s the only thing we can give God

To take God for granted is to be grounded in life. God doesn’t need our money or materials. He owns everything, including us. The only thing He cannot give Himself is praise. God cannot tell Himself “Thank me.”

(5) Constant victory in battles

Examine, the man called David. God referred to him as a man after His heart; king David praised God seven times a day and prayed three times. Confronted with the most incessant oppositions, but won all the battles. Praise is a spiritual medium through which we transfer our battles to God. Transfer all your battles to God by subscribing to a praise lifestyle. And when God takes over, your battle is over (Psalm.55:17).

“And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten.

For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another.

And when Judah came toward the watchtower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped” (2.Chronicles.20:22-24).

Final thoughts

I summarize the five reasons to buy into praise lifestyle:

  • Divine presence.
  • Freedom from satanic oppression.
  • It guarantees your access to divine intervention.
  • It’s the only thing we can give God.
  • Constant victory in battles.
