Name Above All Names – Jesus

The Angel came to Mary, a young virgin girl and said, “You will conceive and bring forth a son and shall call his name Jesus:” the Son of the Highest! (Luke 1:28-31)

Then according to John 3:16, John 3:17 and Philippians 2:5-8: Jesus came on a mission not to condemn the world, but to SAVE it.

Then as a way to basically seal the deal, one day Jesus asked his disciples,

“Who do men say that I am?”

“Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah…or one of the prophets,” the disciples replied. But Peter interjected, “You are the Christ (the messiah or Savior), the Son of the living God.”

Other names we give Him:

Jesus- The Rose of Sharon, the Prince of Peace and Savior of the World.

Jesus:

The Lily of the Valley (Song of Solomon 2:1)

The Bright and Morning Star

Root and Offspring of David (Revelations 22:16)

He is called

Counselor

Mighty God

Everlasting Father 

The Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6)

The Bread of Life  (John 6:35)

The Word (John 1:1)

The Living Water  (John 4:10)

The Alpha & Omega (Revelations 22:13)

Jesus is:

Our High Priest (Hebrews 4:15)

Our Cornerstone (Ephesians 2:19)

the Great Intercessor

King of Kings &

Lord of Lords (Revelations 19:16)

And there is POWER in His Name

It was Peter and Jesus, who entering the temple to pray (Acts 3:1-10) AT 3om in the afternoon, when they came across a lame man at the temple’s gate.  He was a beggar and asked them for money.  Peter replied We have no money  “but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” And he walked!  The name that heals.

The apostle Peter, standing in front of a crowd of witnesses on the Day of Pentecost- Acts chapter 2- after seeing men and women filled with the Holy Ghost and beginning to “speak with other tongues [including various languages], as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Afterward Peter stood in the midst and declared, “These men are not drunk” as you think- since it is but the third hour, but this is a manifestation of what the prophet Joel had declare.  “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ”  The name that brings Salvation.   

There was a woman at the Well who after having five husbands and being isolated from the women of the city- having come to Jacob’s well alone at the sixth hour, she finally encountered a man who knew her desires and thirst for something more.  Jesus replied, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you Living water.” So she asked him for this living water, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst…”  And departed blessed and freed from all hurts, eagerly telling her people “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did!”  The name that delivers.

What a Name!  Jesus

There is no other name under heaven by which men must be saved.

If you don’t know this Jesus in the pardon of your sins or you haven’t confessed Him publicly before others then, NOW IS THE TIME!  Today is the day of Salvation! 

To Receive Jesus repeat this prayer after me:

Dear Jesus,

Come into my heart.  I am a sinner in need of a Savior. Wash me of all sin, make me new. I believe that you died and rose from the dead, and I confess it privately and publicly that you are the Son of God.  I am free because of the blood that you shed and sins that you paid.  From this point, on I will serve you for the rest of my life. 

Amen.
