The Name

What power is in a name!
It is more than a sound
More than a mental image of the one to whom it belongs
More than the meaning passed down from our ancestors
It is a story
The embodiment of the whole person, who they are
Who they will be
Their destiny.
When you speak a person’s name, you are speaking things you have no ken of.

When you speak the Name of Jesus…
There is more power in that Name than any other, ever.
In His Name is salvation
The beginning and end of time
Our very breath.
Remember that when you say, “Jesus” next time, you are speaking more
Than the name of a carpenter from Nazareth
You are speaking God’s Name.
Do not use Jesus’ name lightly.

“Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets.  And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe.  The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.” Hebrews 1:1-4 NLT

    Hiya Momma. I would say, they are not our Lord Jesus Christ rather than “do not possess” because all may inherit in His Holy Spirit. You were tired, Momma…giggle.

  2. Momma Cha says:

    A name is a reflection of the person who bears it. No matter how many people have the same name, the meaning of that name is always indicative of their personal character.
    The name of Jesus is that of Saviour because no other name under the heavens bears the seal and signature of the Prince of Peace and King of Kings.
    There are those named Jesus upon this earth–but they are not THE Jesus of Nazareth because they do not possess His personal, loving, Sovereign Spirit.

  3. Momma Cha says:

    Names are the reflections of the innermost person. Many names are shared, but each utterance of that name has a meaning that only applies to the specific bearer. That is why the Name of Jesus is His name alone. No other name brings salvation because even those who are named jesus on this earth do not carry the essence of our Lord within their spirit. Respect the source of all names. Jesus the Christ.
