There is no other Name like the Name of Jesus, no man can be called by that Name. When you hear the Name Jesus your attention is drawn to the God kind of life.
Luke 1:31 You shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call His Name Jesus.
The Name Jesus is a Hebrew word that means: He will save us. Isaiah said He would be called Immanuel that means: God with us. No other man can lay claim to this Name because no other man can save nor can he be with us forever. Even sinners have a small concept of the holiness of that Name, when they want to fully express themselves they will use the Name to curse. The Name is sacred to the believer, it is used with the highest esteem and reverence. The heathen has no idea concerning the person behind that Name, they just feel that it puts great emphasis on their cursing.
Philippians 2:9 God has highly exalted (raise to the highest position) Him, and gave Him a Name which is above every Name.
Jesus was not the first man to have such a Name, the honor was first given to Adam and he had the dominion Jesus has. How could these two men be born with such a powerful Name? They were the only two men born into this world in a state of righteousness, they were conceived by God not other men. Jesus was the only man to live without sinning, this is the reason hell couldn’t hold Him. Jesus and His Father were one, He was the only man who could make that claim until after His resurrection.
Acts 4:12 There is no salvation in any other Name: for there is none other Name under heaven given among men, whereby we may be saved but the Name of Jesus.
I grew up in the Catholic church and they taught me that only Catholics could go to heaven and some would have to spend some time in purgatory first. I’m sure that if they had faith in Jesus’ Name they would have told me but they didn’t. The Catholics are not the only folks that believe they are the only saved folks, many denominations teach that salvation can come only in their name. What separates the Name of Jesus from the name of denominations? Jesus is the only One who died for fallen man. Jesus is our denomination, He is heaven’s gift, not man’s religion.
Philippians 2:10 At the Name of Jesus, every knee should bow, of things in heaven, things in earth and things under the earth.
Anything and everything that is not born-again of the righteousness of God, must bow and submit to that Name. We are joint heirs with Christ and one of the things we have inherited was His Name and all His dominion. When we use His Name and give the devil a command, the devil says yes Jesus and then he obeys. When we use our faith in His Name, essentially we are writing a check and legally signing His Name to it. By all means use the Name, just remind yourself of the reverence you need.
I gave God His tithe
and He has opened Heaven over me.
Now I sow the seed He gives me, the devil cannot eat my seed.
The curse cannot stop my harvest and God will never forget my seed.
I am truly blessed like Abraham and I give God all the glory.
You will declare a thing, and it will be established for you
