The Beautiful Name of JESUS
We receive people in his name (Matt 18:5)
We are persecuted because of his name (Luke 17:21)
Ministry is to be done in his name (Mk 16:17)
Every believer has the redemptive legal right to use the name of Jesus
The name of Jesus gives authority for prayer to be legally answered.
The name of Jesus empowers prayer to be answered.
Matt. 18:19 “Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. 20 “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst.”
There is no agreement without his name and there is no agreement without his presence.
Matt. 18:20 “For where two or three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst.”
Agreement is impossible without his name and his presence.
John 14:12 “Truly, truly, (I vow, I vow) I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father.
13 “And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
John 14:15 “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. 16 “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;
It’s impossible to do greater unless you believe on him.
It’s impossible to pray effectively without his name.
It’s impossible to pray and see results without the Spirit.
John 15:16 “you did not choose me, but i chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the father in my name, he may give to you.
His name gives you the ability to go and bear fruit
John 15:6 “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch, and dries up; and they gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you. 8 “By this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples.
Without his name and presence there is no agreement.
Without faith (believing) your prayer has no effect.
Without out his name there’s no results.
When there is no results, there is no fruit
John 16:23 “And in that day you will ask Me no question. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you shall ask the Father for anything, He will give it to you in My name.
He has given us the unlimited use of his name
Reading lips does not require breath.
All that the Father is and has, has been invested in the name “Jesus”.
You and I have unlimited use of that name. You can use that name freely.
1 Cor. 3:21So then let no one boast in men. For all things belong to you, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you, 23 and you belong to Christ; and Christ belongs to God.
Everything belongs to you and you belong to him and you and he belong to God.
Nlt Gal. 3:28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male or female. For you are all Christians—you are one in Christ Jesus. 29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and now all the promises God gave to him belong to you.
