Name above all names

We have seen that there is power in the precious, priceless blood of Jesus.
There is also power in the wonderful name of Jesus. Power & all authority.
Jesus, the name that is above all other names. Mighty, magnificent & majestic JESUS.
Name above all names, King of kings & Lord of lords (1 Timothy 6:15).


which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, Ephesians 1:20-22

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth Philippians 2:9-10


Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the greatest of all names. The name exalted above all others.
Jesus means – The Lord is salvation, God saves or salvation. Christ means the anointed one, Messiah.
Jesus was given this name because He would save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21).
Of Nazareth recognises he walked this earth & roots Him in history (1st century Judaism).
God has bestowed upon (gifted & blessed) our Lord Jesus the name that is above every name.

It is the Name at which every knee will bow (human & angelic) & every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
It is the Name to be truly & fully honoured. The Name to submit & surrender to as Lord.
We either do that with willing & humble hearts in this life or we will do it regretfully through gritted teeth at the resurrection of the living & the dead. That will be when Christ returns as judge of all (Acts 10:42; 2 Timothy 4:1; 1 Peter 4:5).
One way or the other we will acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord of all.
Best to submit & surrender now for today is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2).

Jesus has the name & is the One who has been exalted far above every other name.
Jesus now sits at God’s right hand in heaven with authority over every sphere & rank of spiritual & earthly power.
Following His sacrificial death Jesus was raised with resurrection power to sit at God’s right hand.
All authority on heaven & earth has been committed to Him (Matthew 28:18).
Jesus, the Name above all names, The King of kings & Lord of lords. Hallelujah!!
There is power in the name of Jesus. Bow down & confess He is Lord of all.

For Reflection

  • Am I readily submitting & surrendering to the Lordship of Christ?
  • Do I truly & fully honour the Name of Jesus above all else?
  • Meditate upon Jesus the Name above all names.

A song related to this theme:


Prayer

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that Jesus my Saviour has the Name above all names,
And that He alone has been exalted over all at Your right hand.
Jesus thank you that all authority in heaven & on earth has been bestowed upon You,
And wonderfully I am seated with You in heavenly places – SELAH.
Holy Spirit keep me humbly submitting & surrendering unto Christ my Lord,
Help me to keep honouring & glorifying His great Name.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
Amen
