The name of Jesus is so powerful that ignorance of it is robbing many of God's blessings and fulfilment in life. The enemy will do anything to keep man in the dark so that he can continue to oppress him. The truth is that the power in the name of Jesus brings deliverance from all oppressions of the devil and delivers dominion to mankind.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved - Acts 4:12 (KJV)
And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. Acts 3:16 (KJV)
God understanding the power of names carefully chose the name of Jesus to reflect His purpose while on earth and after resurrection. The name of means saviour
Deliverance from sin and its consequences.
Preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss.
Therefore, there is no deliverance from sin and its consequences nor preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss except through the name of Jesus.
For you to enjoy the benefits, including healing in the name of Jesus you need to understand the power in the name.
Therefore what to know about the name Jesus:
1. His name gives us our identity
As a Christian, you are identified with God because you believe in the name of Jesus and are expected to live like Him, Acts 11:26
2. Jesus' name is above every other name.
The name of Jesus is above the name of any sickness or disease or situation. Whatever has a name is below the name of Jesus and must give way to it, no matter where it may come from: heaven, earth or hell, Philip 2:9-11
3. Only through His name can you get anything from God
God has designed it that after the death and resurrection of Jesus, no man can relate with Him for any reason whatsoever except through Jesus. He is now the gateway to God and His blessings: you can only go in and get your blessings, including healing through Him, John 16:23-24
4. Everything Jesus is and carries is in His name
Whatever Jesus can do, the power in the name will do it when you use it. Whatever God can do you can do in the name of Jesus. You can say - let there be in Jesus name and there will be. We exercise our God-given authority only in the name of Jesus, Mark 16:17-18
5. His name is at work 24/7
Because Jesus lives forever and He is with us always, His name is never on break. Call Him anytime, anywhere the power in the name will work. Revelations 1:18, Matthew 28:20
6. The enemy knows and understands the power of names, most especially the name Jesus.
He trembles at the name Jesus.
Command healing or deliverance over your life or loved one in the name of Jesus and the spirit of infirmity will leave immediately, Matthew 8:29, Acts 16:18.
7. The name of Jesus is a strong refuge.
The power in the name provides protection, covering for them that believe in it. When you call His name in time of danger, Jesus quickly shields you from any imminent evil, Proverbs 18:10.
8. His name commands instant delivery.
When you call His name for help, the answer is dispatched immediately. Most of the time you see instant manifestation but some other times you see the result after a while as you walk in obedience to God's word, Acts 9:34
9. The power in the name of Jesus is invoked through faith
If you call Jesus' name in unbelief or carelessly, it will not work. Therefore, anytime you are mentioning Jesus' name do it in faith and with the understanding of the power that lies in His name. Don't call His name in vain; it is not acceptable unto God, Acts 3:16
10. You are qualified to use His name only if you are born again
It is very dangerous to use the name of Jesus if you have not identified with Him. You have to give your life to Jesus first before you can exercise the power in the name, Acts 19:13-17.
In conclusion, there is healing, deliverance amongst other things in the name of Jesus. With all you have read above, you are now in a better position to exercise authority over that illness or situation in Jesus name. Do so today and your testimony is the next.
