Sermon starts at 10:00 . One of the BEST sermons I have ever heard. You will learn so much about the name of JESUS and what it means to you and me today.
A great history and biblical lessons. Interesting all the way through. Please share it.
IN THE NAME OF JESUS: GOD WE INVITE YOU IN
What do you do when you want to get someone ‘s attention. Do you say hey man, hey lady or hey you? No you call the person by name. You say hey Jake I need you over here. Hi Melissa could you please bring me some more coffee.
Well when you call on the name of JESUS!!! You come in contact with the very name of GOD . There is no other name that by men will be saved. When we call upon the name of JESUS in heaven God is looking down.
When we call upon the name of JESUS in our relationship with him through the cross of JESUS . God is certain to hear.
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and elders of our people, 9 are we being questioned today because we’ve done a good deed for a crippled man? Do you want to know how he was healed? 10 Let me clearly state to all of you and to all the people of Israel that he was healed by the powerful name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene,b the man you crucified but whom God raised from the dead. 11 For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says,
‘The stone that you builders rejected
has now become the cornerstone.’c
12 There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”
SPIRITUAL WARFARE AND THE NAME OF JESUS
This website was started to sound the alarm to Christians and all people about the danger and the reality of the occult. Even in churches.
I will tell you that it is a real enemy and anyone who tells you that it is not a foe to be reckon with does not know what they are talking about. Do not fight Satan ‘s power without proper authority or standing.
This is why we use the name of JESUS. It is written upon our hearts. We confess it with our mouths.
As the 7 sons of Scheba found out ( Acts 19 below tell their sad story) . No you just can ‘t use the name of JESUS and think that it is going to help you if you have no relationship with JESUS through the cross. As Jews they had not received JESUS as their Savior or his baptism as Peter had directed all people to repent for the remissions of sins and be baptized in JESUS name.
OUR CONNECTION WITH THE NAME OF JESUS
Without that relationship with JESUS on the cross. Without the Baptism representing you going down with JESUS and being Resurrected like JESUS in his newnes and power over the grave. Using the name of JESUS will have no impact. Because it is like going to the bank and using someone else’s name to withdraw funds. The person at the counter will say. This is not you and if you are lucky you will leave the bank without being arrested lol.
But if you go to the bank with your husband’s name. And you say I would like to take all the money out of the bank lolll. Please don’t try this ladies. lol. But if you did you could without any problems because he gave you his name. You have a relationship with him!!!! Everything he owns you own!!! A good husband that is and CHRIST is that and zillion times more…
He gave us his name to use. But do not use it without just cause. For it is precious. And we must always remember what it means and stand for from the cross and the resurrection!!!
CALL UPON THE NAME OF JESUS
So we must build our relationship with GOD and call upon his name. No we do not have to be religious and always use the name of JESUS. You can say God, or Father, or even my Friend. But in your heart you know his name is JESUS. The more we know about him the closer we will be to him.
Keep learning about JESUS. It is that JESUS that when you call. He will answer!!!
The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
15When they call on me, I will answer;
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue and honor them.
16I will reward them with a long life
and give them my salvation.”
Seven sons of Sceva ‘s sad story. Only people with a connection with CHRIST can use the name of JESUS in spiritual warfare.
God gave Paul the power to perform unusual miracles. 12 When handkerchiefs or aprons that had merely touched his skin were placed on sick people, they were healed of their diseases, and evil spirits were expelled.
13 A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, “I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out!” 14 Seven sons of Sceva, a leading priest, were doing this. 15 But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, “I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?”16 Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.
17 The story of what happened spread quickly all through Ephesus, to Jews and Greeks alike. A solemn fear descended on the city, and the name of the Lord Jesus was greatly honored. 18 Many who became believers confessed their sinful practices. 19 A number of them who had been practicing sorcery brought their incantation books and burned them at a public bonfire. The value of the books was several million dollars.c 20 So the message about the Lord spread widely and had a powerful effect.
