Understanding The Power In The Name Of Jesus

The name of Jesus is so powerful that ignorance of it is rubbing 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

Salvation means

  1. Deliverance from sin and its consequences.
  2. 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

“… And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.” Acts 11:26

As a Christian, you are identified with God because you believe in the name of Jesus and are expected to live like Him

2. Jesus’ name is above every other name.

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; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philip 2:9-11 (KJV)

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.

3. Only through His name can you get anything from God

And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full – John 16:23-24 (KJV)

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.

4. Everything Jesus is and carries is in His name

And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover – Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)

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. We exercise our God-given authority only in the name of Jesus.

5. His name is at work 24/7

I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death – Revelations 1:18 (KJV)

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen – Matthew 28:20 (KJV)

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.

6. The enemy knows and understands the power of names, most especially the name Jesus.

And behold, they shrieked and screamed, What have You to do with us, Jesus, Son of God? Have You come to torment us before the appointed time? Matthew 8:29 (AMP)

The devils trembled at the presence of Jesus. They still tremble at the name of Jesus

And she did this for many days. Then Paul, being sorely annoyed and worn out, turned and said to the spirit within her, I charge you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her! And it came out that very moment – Acts 16:18 (AMP)

Command healing or deliverance over your life or loved one in the name of Jesus and the spirit of infirmity will leave immediately.

7. The name of Jesus is a strong refuge.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe – Proverbs 18:10 (KJV)

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.

8. His name commands instant delivery.

And Peter said unto him, Æneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately- Acts 9:34 (KJV)

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.

9. The power in the name of Jesus is invoked through faith

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)

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.

10. You are qualified to use His name only if you are born again

Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified Acts 19:13-17 (KJV)

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.

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.
