Vision and Revelation from Jane Hansen Hoyt

The Significance of a Name

iStock 000010882516L webHe is the Lord of Lords & King of KingsThere is much significance in a name.  It is a point of identification and is a distinctive designation.  The ability to refer to and identity a subject is integral to our way of communicating with one another.  You greet people, by giving your name.  Names also have power.  Your signature on any legal document carries an authority and, in essence, states that you are knowledgeable of, and responsible for that which you are signing your name to.

 A NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES

There is a name that is far greater than any name in history.  It is the name that is above all names.  There are not enough nouns’ and adjectives in any language of the world to describe the majestic, all powerful name of the Lord Jesus Christ.  

God has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name; That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongues should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  Phil. 2:9

It is the name that rules all heaven, earth and under the earth.  His name rules in this world and in the world to come.  His name identifies Him.  His name has power and there is authority in His name.

I teach a faith and healing seminar at my church on each 4 th Saturday. Just last month the Holy Spirit led me to teach of the Name of Jesus. You know that use the Name of Jesus as just a name that we close our prayers. It to many has become just a cliche. But His Name is so powerful that there is no other name by which we are saved. The Name of Jesus is our guarantee that our prayers will be answered for Jesus said that whatever you ask the Father in My Name, He will do it. It is the Name that we cast out demons and they have to obey. His Name is been to given to above every name that is named and therefore disease has to bow to that Name. Signs and wonders occur when we use the Name.
We are baptised in that Name. Our sins are buried forever in that Name. Thank you for this timely message about the precious Name of Jesus. We as the body of Christ must remember that we have a great inheritance and that is the gift of the Name of Jesus. It is not just Name that we use in ending a prayer but in that Name is power to do the extraordinary and the miraculous!

Good article. We should consider what we are showing the world about us and our own name when we do some things. Our own name is unique too! It identifies us and what we stand for. For me I want my name to stand for Christ. I want everyone...

Good article. We should consider what we are showing the world about us and our own name when we do some things. Our own name is unique too! It identifies us and what we stand for. For me I want my name to stand for Christ. I want everyone to know that I am a Christian and my actions to show it without question!
