“In the Name of Jesus, In the Name of Jesus, we have the victory. In the Name of Jesus, In the Name of Jesus,Demons will have to flee.”
(What a wonderful song:)
“Who can tell what God will do, who can say, what He’s done for you? In the mighty Name of Jesus, we have the victory.”
I wonder how many of us, really have the victory. Are we still battling a secret sin?
Lust, covetous, pride… These are the three sins that bring us down, the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.
Our victory over our natural man is won, only by and in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Emanuel, God with us, God within us, God directing, protecting and empowering us, by His Holy Spirit, in the Name of Jesus.
“by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
We should be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
“ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
(We are Justified: Just as if we had never sinned.)
“in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
We should Give thanks always
“That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him”
We command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
“In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
We should, deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
“This is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.”
“to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord”
We are sanctified (set apart for His service), called, to be one… not Baptists, Methodists, Episcopal, Anglicans, Penticostals… ONE IN HIM. That: “The name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.“
“I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”
“But when they believed the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.” Then they:
“spoke boldly in the name of Jesus.”
“Men that have hazarded their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
“And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.
And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
This is what our Church is missing, our being willing to die for the Gospel, that we would speak boldly, and that signs and wonders would follow.
” by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.”
” In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
That is the boldness, the confidence we lack, to boldly say… “In the Name of Jesus be healed.”
But Jesus said, “Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.”
Saints, do you really believe the Church is walking in the Power of God? Are we not just hearing the great things God can, or will do maybe some day?
The Kingdom of God is at hand…. right now today. He gave us the Holy Spirit and Power.
We need to learn how to walk in Him. If we walk. In faith, believing, there is nothing that God cannot do through us.
Will you allow Him to Rule and Reign in your life. I pray we will. Amen
