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.

GOD HAS A WAY THROUGH EVERYTHING


oil-lamp-webKeep "oil in your lamp" by daily fellowship with the LordJust think about this incredibly powerful and all inclusive statement.  GOD HAS A WAY THROUGH EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING!

There is nothing that is outside of His reach.  There is nothing His eye does not behold or His ear not able to hear.  God’s mighty arm is stretched out over the nations of the world.

From the most personal concerns that touch our lives, to the compelling world concerns that alarm and chill our hearts, GOD HAS A WAY THROUGH IT ALL.

A TESTIMONY FOR GOD

sun-behind-dark-coulds-webGod is looking for testimony in the earth now, even in the midst of our current darkness.Who of us can even fathom the brutality of all that is taking place in Iraq?

Our hearts and minds are continually assaulted with the images and realities of what Christians are experiencing in this hour; crucifixions, children being cut in half, women and children being buried alive, men being hanged, multitudes being left on a mountain top to die.   It could not be more heartbreaking, terrifying, or urgent.  It is as though the vileness of hell has been released. Everything in us cries out for these dear people who are victims of ISIS’ hatred and violence.  On one hand you feel utterly helpless, yet on another, we as Christians are anything but helpless.

THE PRAYERS OF THE RIGHTEOUS AVAILETH MUCH

An urgent call to fasting and prayer was issued for Sunday, August 10th.  Ministries around the world were being asked to mobilize their networks so that millions of people across the earth were standing in one accord against the darkness. 

Within a 24 hour period the Aglow network was alerted to this crucial time of prayer and a prayer conference call was set.  Close to 700 women and men within Aglow rallied to the sound of the alarm. We heard from others who were unable to join the call that they also prayed with us at the appointed time. It was a night of power as prayers and decrees were spoken into the atmosphere around the globe.
