EASTER 2008: Jesus Name …

Col 3:17
(KJV) And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
JESUS… the only name we can be saved by.
JESUS… the only name to get your prayers answered by
JESUS… the only name that will cast out demons
JESUS… has all power in heaven and in earth (mt 28:18)
JESUS… what the entire bible is about!!
JESUS… God manifested in the flesh (God with us, Emmanuel) (mt 1:23)
“In His Name”
We must understand that the name “Jesus” is IT as in nothing else will get you saved, healed or anything else important to a Christian such as casting out demons. Try to cast one out in your name and you will be laughed at but if you plead the name of Jesus and use his name to cast it out then it has to flee.

Christians are Jewish people who just know the messiah has come and his name is Jesus Christ. Christian means “Christ like” or “follow of Christ” and as such we must follow many of his principles. One such important principle is the fact we must know in what name to do things. Jesus Christ is the only name that can save you. When you speak the name of Jesus into your problem and in to your life you use the power of attorney (Col 3:17), Christ has told us to use. Jesus is the only name that will cast out a demon, heal the sick and save the soul.

Jesus is the name that we are to do everything in. Fruit of the spirit in a Christian’s life is important for this because God wants us to be a witness for him by our actions, words and general attitude. There are many places in the bible that show us that how we are to act, speak and treat non-Christians. Jesus is the only one that died on the cross for us and he bought us with the price of his precious blood on the cross. The apostles realized that what ever they do it is in vain unless it is in Jesus name. Jesus taught them exclusively that when you go in and lay hands, fast or cast out a demon it has to be in HIS name or your actions are essentially voided out and will be in vain.

Below is a list of actions that must be done in the name of Jesus Christ or it don’t count and is voided. When we as a person came to Christ we had to realize who he was and what he could do for our life and what he could save us from. When you put on salvation and cast the old sinful man away you admitted that you need Jesus in your life and HE is the way through those pearly gates. Jesus is the way, truth, & the life; you will not go to heaven but by him.( John 14:6)

John 16:23-26 KJV
(23) And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
(24) Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
(25) These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.
(26) At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:

So as a Christian we are to use his name in these ways (in no particular order)…
