What’s in a name?
IN HIS NAME, YOU WILL BE SAVED
Romans 10:9 Berean Study Bible
that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not harm them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will be made well.”
for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
HE IS LORD OF ALL
Casting out in Jesus’name requires the caster-believer to have an intimate relationship with the Lord. See Acts 19:13-15. With intimate, I mean you accepted and believe in Jesus Christ, you were baptized in the Holy Spirit, you follow His commands, and live your life with Him as your Lord and King.
Philippians 2:9-11 Berean Study Bible
Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place, and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to reckless indiscretion. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
HE IS THE ONLY WAY
He is the ONLY way to the Father, our merciful God! It is to the Father that we all pray. What we ask is given to us if it is according to His holy will and is asked for in the name of Jesus. God loves us even before Jesus saved us. Love is actually the reason why we were saved. But, only through Jesus – our Savior, our Redeemer, our ransom and payment for sins we should have paid for.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
PRAY, AND ASK – IN JESUS’ NAME
Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in My name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
In that day you will no longer ask Me anything. Truly, truly, I tell you, whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you. Until now you have not asked for anything in My name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.
1 John 3:21-24
Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God, and we will receive from Him whatever we ask, because we keep His commandments and do what is pleasing in His sight. And this is His commandment: that we should believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and we should love one another just as He commanded us. Whoever keeps His commandments remains in God, and God in him. And by this we know that He remains in us: by the Spirit He has given us.
Nothing should keep you now from accepting Jesus Christ. He is the only way. he is your Savior. He is Lord of all!
Whoever has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me. The one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.”
