We pronounce in The name of Jesus. Why?
the name “Jesus” is derived from the Hebrew name “Jeshua” or “Yeshuwa.” This name is found in Ezra, Nehemiah, and elsewhere in the Old Testament, not as a reference to the coming Messiah, but to other people. There is no power associated with these individuals; the name “Jesus” is only powerful when connected with the risen Christ.
What sort of power does His name evoke, and how does this power work?
Jesus has been given many names: Counsellor, Son of Man, Son of God, Immanuel, Rabbi, and more. “The word “Christ” means anointed. It comes from the Greek cristos, and is a translation of the Hebrew word for Messiah, meshiyach, which means “anointed” or “chosen one.”
While other titles suggest elements of Jesus’ character (great teacher and spiritual leader), the name and title, Jesus Christ, embodies them all.
“The literal name ‘Jesus’ is not inherently powerful; it is powerful because of Jesus Christ, the person, God incarnate, who made a way for our salvation.”
There is power in The name of Jesus
To break every chain,
There’s an army rising up at/in The name of Jesus,
I hear the chains falling,
Hallelujah! I am free!!! Glory to God in The HIGHEST!!!
Jesus is The LORD’s truth made flesh for all of Mankind. This flesh, consecrated on the cross, should not be mistaken as being weak. For upon Christ’s resurrection was it made true and everlasting. His flesh has endured throughout the ages for each and every Christian. Acceptance of it ensures our protection as one of God’s children.
And we pray:
In The MIGHTY name of Jesus of Nazareth and all that is holy, I lift my head to Thee LORD, in thanks, praise and glory. Your Word is my truth and my shield, protecting me from all that is unholy. Grant me thus, a place within Your Heavenly Kingdom, as I accept You into my heart and soul. For Your Word is my truth and my shield, defending me with light against all that is infernal, Amen.
