Name above all names

There is power in the wonderful, beautiful name of Jesus.
The name above all others & the name that alone brings salvation.
In Hebrew thought the name depicts the nature of the holder.
How appropriately is Jesus named – ‘Jesus = Yahweh is Salvation’. Just wonderful!!
Jesus also holds the name & authority through which kingdom signs & wonders are carried out.

And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; Mark 16:17

But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. Mark 9:39

by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.” Acts 4:30

Signs & wonders can be done through the followers of Jesus by the power, anointing & authority invested in His Name & Nature.
This happened to the disciples who lived & worked alongside Jesus (Luke 9:1-6).
It happened with other followers of Jesus as He walked this earth (Mark 9:39-40; Luke 10:1-12).
It happened throughout the book of Acts & in the early church – Peter, Paul, Phillip & others.
It has happened throughout the history of the Church.
It continues to happen in our day. It is part of the birthright & inheritance of every believer.
Salvation, miracles, healings & deliverances regularly take place in & through the mighty Name of Jesus.
There is power, wonder working power, in the Name – Jesus – that is above all other names.

The anointing & authority for signs & wonders is released through intimacy with Jesus rather than by merely reciting Jesus’ name as a formula.
The seven sons of Sceva found this out to their cost (Acts 19:13-16) – Jesus I know, Paul I know but who are you!!!
Intimacy with Jesus is key. Knowing the person & who we are ‘In Christ’ rather than just the Name.
Demons & the spiritual powers behind diseases submit to Jesus name (Luke 10:17).
It is Jesus anointing & authority working through the believer through the power of His Name & Person.

Signs & wonders will take place for us, & through us, in Jesus Name.
We must be ever careful that when they do all the glory goes to God.
It is Jesus Name & Jesus’ power at work & never anything in & of ourselves.
We do though need to keep exercising expectant faith in the mighty name of Jesus.
Signs & wonders will surely follow those that truly believe. Hallelujah!!
Jesus name is salvation, healing, deliverance & life. Glory unto God!!!

For Reflection

  • Do I truly believe in signs & wonders in our day?
  • What signs & wonders in Jesus name have I witnessed or experienced?
  • Meditate upon signs & wonders in Jesus mighty Name.

A song related to this theme:

Heavenly Father,
Thank you that signs & wonders flow from the mighty Name of Jesus.
Jesus thank you that there is salvation, healing, deliverance & life in Your wonderful Name.
Holy Spirit keep me close to & intimate with Christ my Saviour,
Take me ever deeper into friendship & fellowship with my Lord & Master.
This I ask In Jesus mighty Name.
