In His Name

You may remember as a youngster being sent somewhere on behalf of your mother or father to run an errand of some kind. You might even have been given a note to prove whose authority you came in the name of. This gave you access to an adult world you otherwise were prohibited from. When the disciples were learning how to walk out their faith as Jesus taught them the secrets of the kingdom of God, one of the most important aspects was Jesus doing His miracles in the Name of His Father.

They subsequently learned that when Jesus died for the sin of all humanity for those who accepted Him that all power was given to the Son of God and they were to go unto all the world and spread the good news of grace in the Name of Jesus. In Acts chapter 16 the Apostle Paul finally got tired of a woman mocking the disciples, and in the Name of Jesus delivered her from a foul spirit. James 5:14 instructs us, as Christians, to anoint with oil those who are sick among us and pray for healing, in the Name of Jesus. When you come in the Name of someone it literally means to come with their character, to come with their moral strength and reputation.

This is like when an heir apparent comes as a prince or princess bearing all authority given to them by the king. Are you walking in authority, friend? And if so, whose authority are you coming in the name of? Is it the authority of your character or the character of Christ in you? If youíve tried to flex your spiritual muscles in your own strength, then youíve probably been disappointed with the results. But there is an authority, contingent upon your faith in Jesus, that you are meant to walk in as a Christian believer. Godís Word says youíve been given the power to conquer the kingdom of darkness; administer justice; obtain Godís promises; quench raging fires; escape the sword; win strength from weakness; and put the enemy to flight; all in the Name of Jesus. If we lift up Christ, He will draw all people to Himself.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
