THE NAME OF JESUS

Before He returned to Heaven, the Lord Jesus gave orders for us to continue in His name the work He had started.

The coming of Jesus was the dawn of a new era for mankind. Man had been condemned to eternal torment and had to suffer in this life all the diseases and problems the devil had created.

The Lord Jesus started His mission by teaching us what God's will for mankind was. Up to then, men had believed that suffering was God's punishment for the sins they had committed. However, the Lord Jesus came to reveal that all suffering is the work of the devil.

Everywhere He went He revealed God's will for mankind, and fulfilled this will by healing the sick and casting out demons.

When the time came for Him to leave, the Lord Jesus gathered His disciples and ordered them to continue His work. In order to do this, He empowered them to use His Name to do the same miracles He had done. Thank God for this.

You will learn in this lesson that the Name of Jesus is our supreme authority. You will become an overcomer as you learn how to use this Name, and will also see why some fail.

He said: As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world (John 17:18 ).

In Christ,
Missionary R. R. Soares

 

Anyone who wishes to overcome the battles of life must study carefully the power and authority there is in the Name of Jesus. He will need to have the same understanding of this Name that the heroes of faith had, and what using the Name of our Lord and Savior really means today.

In John 14:13, the Lord Jesus declared: And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14:13). In this passage, He is not referring to prayer as we know it; He is talking about ordaining, demanding, declaring (according to the scholars of Greek - the language the New Testament was written in).

For the believer, using the Name of Jesus should be a habit as common as any other. It should be constantly and continuously used. Peter and John walked with Jesus and certainly were there when the Lord said that whatever we ordained in His Name, He would do. In Acts 3:1-9, we read the following:

Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth [hour]. And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple; who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, "Look at us." So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. Then Peter said, "Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk." And he took him by the right hand and lifted [him] up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them---- walking, leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God (Acts 3:1-9).

What happened here? Peter and John knew that Jesus Himself would do whatever they ordained His Name. When the beggar asked for alms, they took advantage of the situation and used the Name of Jesus. It's interesting to note that they did not give him a sermon, telling him that he was suffering because it was the will of God. They said nothing beyond the command to rise up and walk in the Name of Jesus.

Once we have learned that through the Name of Jesus we can ordain whatever we want, we will begin to live the abundant life that the Lord planned for us. We will then take possession of the position that God has said is already ours.

Nothing in the spiritual world will work in our favor if we do not avail ourselves of the resources, the power, and the authority of the Name of our Redeemer. Through the Name of Jesus we have access to God. Through the Name of Jesus we bind the forces of the devil, and are succored by power from on high. When we use this Name for our healing or any other need, we can be sure that all evil will be defeated. Sometimes, however, the symptoms will continue for a time, even though the devil has already been defeated. This is his last attempt. Sometimes he whispers in our minds, and we do not perceive that it is him. He insinuates, "Well, this infirmity is different... This is really a tough one... This is a case for the doctors to take care of... Just take a little medicine and pronto... This is not such a serious problem, I think I can live with it...? The devil is a master at influencing people and deceiving those who are not firmly based on the Word of God.


THE NAME OF JESUS IS THE SUPREME AUTHORITY

The Lord Jesus gave us the right to use His Name. He promised us that in His Name we would cast out demons and if we laid our hands on the sick, they would be healed: And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons [...] and they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. (Mark 16:17-18)

When we use the Name of Jesus through the revelation of the Word, the power of God obeys our commands, just as it obeyed Jesus' commands. When you use the name of Jesus you are acting as His solicitor.

The power and authority behind the Name of Jesus are the power and authority of the Lord God Himself. The Lord Jesus declared that all power had been granted him:

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth".
(Matthew 28:18)

The Holy Spirit declares that this Name is the supreme authority in the Universe.

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and [that] every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
(Philippians 2:9-11)

All creatures in Heaven, in Hell and on the face of the Earth have to kneel before the Name. When does this happen? When we use this Name, and exercise our rights to claim everything that the Word of God tells us we should have.


JUST USE THE NAME

When the Lord Jesus gave us His Name to ordain whatever we desired, He knew what this represented. He knew that thousands of people like you and me would order the devil and all his evil to leave our lives. He also knew that one day, someone with an incurable disease or an insoluble problem would rise up somewhere and claim his or her healing. He not only knew this, He also expects everyone, no matter what their problem is, to act like this. He expects you, who have in some form been attacked by the devil, to rise up and take a position this very moment. When you act according to the Scriptures, you are not acting rudely or rebelliously; you are simply obeying the Lord. When you know the word of the Lord and do not obey it, then you are acting as a rebel.


BECOME AN OVERCOMER

Any believer can become, from night to day, from one moment to another, someone who dominates the situation instead of being dominated by it. Take a position this very moment. Use the Name of Jesus; thank the Father for your spiritual position and make the devil know that, from now on, you are an overcomer.

Nothing will work for you in the spiritual world until you make use of your prerogatives as a child of God. God cannot do anything for you if you do not take possession of the authority that belongs to you in the Name of Jesus.


WHY DO SOME FAIL?

Many fail simply because they allow the devil to gain the victory in their lives. Some are lazy and do not want to act the way God has established. Others start out the right way, and actually obtain some victories, but when they face a tougher test, a more difficult problem, or the devil puts up a stiffer opposition, they give up and accept failure.

They say something like this, "Well, you see, it's not like I have forgotten Jesus or denied Him. You have to understand that this was a difficult problem and the devil really attacked me; so, I just couldn't make it... But I believe in the Word of God... I just decided to use the human resources that the Lord left for us." They do not realize that they have actually denied Jesus; they have doubted His power and are worse than unbelievers. In Hebrews 10:38, the Lord God reveals what happens to us when we back down or stop living by faith:

Now the just shall live by faith; But if [anyone] draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him (Hebrews 10:38).


HOW TO USE THE NAME OF JESUS

We will never use the Name of Jesus successfully if we do not act through the revelation of the Word of God. We must clearly understand that our only link with the Father is the Word, who is the Lord Jesus. Our word by itself is regarded as nothing in the spiritual world. In the beginning it was not so; man had authority to reign over all creation, but lost it all when he sinned. When Jesus conquered Hell and cast out the "prince" of this world, He not only won back the authority that man had lost, but also received all power, both in heaven and on earth. He has now given us the sublime privilege of using His Name, but warns us that without Him we can do nothing. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)

No matter what you are going through, you must first meditate on the Word of God. Once you have received His Word in your heart, He will give you faith - the certainty that whatever you need is already yours. Then use the name of Jesus without the slightest hesitation, and claim that which has been revealed to you.

After using the Name of Jesus, believe that your requests have been answered, and consider the work done, even if the symptoms attest to the contrary.
