INTRODUCTION

NAMES! WE ALL HAVE THEM. THEY ARE IMPORTANT FOR KNOWING OTHER PEOPLE AND OTHER PEOPLE KNOWING US
SOMETIMES NAME ARE NOT THAT IMPORTANT
HOEVER, IN THE DAYS OF THE BIBLE, NAMES REPRESENTED CHARACTER, BEHAVIOR AND EVEN DESTINY
BUT, WE COULD HAVE ANY OTHER NAME IN THE WORLD AND BE THE SAME PERSON
I NAMED MY TWO SONS WITH MEANING
JEREMIAH ,EANS ELEVATED OF THE LORD OR IT ALSO MEANS, ONE WHO YAHWEH HAS APPOINTED
MICAH MEANS, WHO IS LIKE GOD
REGARDLESS OF HOW HIGH THAT YOUR NAME COULD BECOME, THERE IS A NAME ABOVE EVERY NAME
IT IS A NAME THAT CAUSES HEAVEN TO SHOUT WITH JOY
IT IS ALSO A NAME THAT CAUSES DEMONS TO RUN AND DEVILS TO GET NERVOUS
IT IS A NAME THAT BRINGS HELP TO THE HELPLESS, PEACE TO THE TORMENTED, REST TO THE RESTLESS, HOPE TO THE HOPELESS, AND COMFORT TO THE COMFORTLESS
THIS NAME HAS CURED SICKNESS; BROKEN THE CHAINS OF SIN; DELIVERED THE CAPTIVE AND THRILLED THE SAINTS.
THIS PERSON HAD BEEN CALLED EVERYTHING FROM ADAM TO WONDERFUL
ANYTIME IN THE BIBLE THE RESPONSE OF PEOPE IS WONDER OR AMAZEMENT, IT COULD ONLY BE ONE MAN\THE NAME THAT I AM TALKING ABOUT IN THIS PASSAGE IS THE NAME JESUS CHRIST
AS I DO, SEARCH YOUR HEART AND IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE PERSON WHO WEARS THAT NAME, YOU CAN MEET HIM TODAY
IF YOU KNOW HIM, BUT ARE NOT AS CLOSE TO HIM THAT YOU WOUKD LIKE TO BE, YOU CAN HAVE THAT FIXED TO DAY
HE IS STILL LOOKING FOR A VACANCY IN SOMEONE’S HEART, YOU MAY HAVE SO MUCH STUFF THAT THEIR IS NO VANCY IN YOUR LIFE FOR CHRIST
YOU NEED TO EMPTY OUT YOUR LIFE
AND IF YOU LOVE HIM ALREADY, YOU WILL HAVE MORE REASONS TO DO THAT THIS MORNING
LET US LOOK AT THAT GLORY OF THAT NAME

BODY

1. THE REALITY OF THAT MAN’S DUTY (V. 9)
A. A SOVEREIGN GLORY
HIS GLORY HAS BEEN GIVEN TO HIM BY DIVINE DECREE
THE WORD `’EXALTED” MEANS TO ELEVATE SUPREMELY
GOD GAVE HIM EXCEPTIONAL HONOR-THIS WAS SUPREME
ALL OVER THE WORLD, WITH EVERY TICK OF THE CLOCK, PEOPLE CURSE AND DESPISE THE NAME OF JESUS, BUT IT IS THIS NAME THAT BRINGS FORGIVENESS OF SINS
NOTHING ELSE CAN
Luke 24:47–48 KJV 1900
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.
LUKE
AND THIS GIVES US ACCESS INTO THE FATHER’S PRESENT
John 16:23–24 KJV 1900
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
WHEN WE MAKE MUCH OF THE NAME JESUS, WE ARE ALREDY DONG WHAT GOD HAS DONE
GOD HAS DECIDED THAT HIS NAME SHOULD BE LIFTED UP TO THE HEIGHTS OF HEAVEN
DON’T EVER CRITICIZE SOMEONE PRAISING GOD, BECAUSE THEY ARE ABOUT THEIR FATHER’S BUSINESS
B. A SINGULAR GLORY
HIS NAME IS ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME
THAT MEANS THAT HIS NAME IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
MANY MAY WEAR THE SAME NAME ALL OVER THE WORLD TODAY, BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE JESUS
HIS UNIQUENESS IS THAT HE IS THE SON OF GOD AND THE SON OF MAN
ONLY HE CAN TAKE THE WORST OF SINNERS AND MAKE THEM CLEAN
ONLY HE CAN TAKE A HELLBOUND SINNER AD RECONCILE TO GOD
WHATEVER NEW DEVELOPMENT COME FORTH, HIS NAME REMAINS EVERY OTHER NAME
2. THE REASON FOR THAT NAME’S GLORY (V5-11)
HIS STATION (V.6-7)
THESE VERSES DECLARE THAT CHRIST IS ABSOLUTELY GOD
HE WAS ALWAYS GOD, YET GOD THE SON TOOK UPON HIMSELF HUMAN FLESH WHEN HE WAS BORN IN BETHLEHEM
CONSIDER ALL THE DIMENSIONS OF THAT TRUTH
THINK ABOUT TE CREATOR DEPENDENT UPON THE CREATION
WHEN HE CAME, HE DIDN’T COME AS A KING, AS A WEALTHY MAN, OR AS A RULER
WHEN HE CAME HE CAME AS A SERVANT
HE CAME AS AN ORDINARY MAN TO SERVE ALL MEN
Isaiah 53:2 KJV 1900
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, And as a root out of a dry ground: He hath no form nor comeliness; And when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
Mark 10:45 KJV 1900
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
HE CME AS A MAN SO THAT HE MIGHT DIE FOR ALL MEN
NOTICE THAT GOD EXALTED HIM BECAUSE HE WILLINGLY HUMBLED TO BE A LIVING GENERATION OF GOD’S LOVE FOR FALLEN HUMANITY
Romans 5:8 KJV 1900
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
B. HIS SUBMISSION (V. 8)
JESUS WILLINGLY CAME FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOING TO CALVARY TO DIE FOR YOU AND I
John 18:37 KJV 1900
Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
MAN DID NOT KILL JESUS
HE WILLINGLY LAID DOWN HIS LIFE, THE INNOCENT FOR THE GUILTY, SO THAT SINNERS MIGHT GET SAVED
John 10:17–18 KJV 1900
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
HE SUBMITTED ALL TO THE FATHER AND BECAME OBEDIENT UNTIL DEATH
HIS FAHER HAS EXALTED HIS NAME ABOVE EVERY NAME IN HEAVEN OR ON EARTH
C. HIS SACRIFICE (V.8)
THIS VERSE TELLS US THAT JESUS WILLINGLY ENTERED THE JAWS OF DEATH FOR YOU AND ME
HIS DEATH WAS NO SANITARY, PAINLESS AFFAIR
HE DIDN’T DIE IN A HOSPITAL WHERE THERE WERE DRUGS TO KILL THE PAIN
WHEN HE DIED, HE DIED UPON A CROSS, THE MOST HORRIBLE AND CRUEL FORM OF EXECUTION EVER INVENTED BY MAN
EX-CRUCIFIXION
HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE LOVES US, BECAUSE HE DID THIS, GOD HAS HIGHLY EXALTED HIM, AND GIVEN HIM A NAME ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME
MAY THOSE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED THE POER OF THE CROSS JIN THEIR VOICES, WITH THAT OF THE FATHER AND LIFT HIGH THE NAME OF JESUS

3. THE RESPONSE TO THAT NAME’S GLORY (10-11)

A. AN ACKOWLEDGE OF HIS POSITION
EVERY HUMAN BEING IN ALL THE UNIVERSE IS CALLED UPON TO RECOGNIZE HIS POSITION
THEY ARE CALLED TO BOW IN SUBMISSION AND SURRENDER TO THIS MAN NAMED JESUS
EVERY CREATURE, INCLUDING YOU, SHOULD BOW YOUR KNEES BEFOR HIM IN HUMBLE ACKNOWLEDGEMEMT
OF HIS POSITION, HIS POWER, ND HIS GLORY
THIS IS A CALL TO ACKOWLEDGE, BUT WHETHER YOU DO IT WILLINGLY OR NOT, THERE IS COMING A DAY WHEN EVERY ANGEL, EVERY DEMON, EVERY SAINT, EVERY SINNER, EVEN SATAN HIMSELF WILL BOW TO THAT NAME
Romans 14:11 KJV 1900
For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
ROMANS 14::
HAVE YOU ACKNOWLEDGED HIM FOR WHO HE IS
HAVE YOU BOWED DOWN TO HIM AS LORD
HAVE YOU BOWED TO HIM AS SAVIOR
AS LORD, AS YOUR ONLY HOPE
B. AN ACCEPTANCE OF HIS PERSON
THE WORD CONFESS MEAS TO AGREE, OR TO SAY THE SAME THING ABOUT
GOD HAS DECLARED THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO COME TO HIM
HAVE YOU EVER COME TO THAT PLACE WHERE YOU HUMBLED YOURSELF AND CONFESSED THE FACT THAT YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF
HAVE YOU EVER ACKNOWLEDGED YOUR SINS TO GOD
HAVE YOU EVER CALLED UPON THE NAME OF CHRIST FOR YOUR SALVATION
UNTIL YOU COME TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU CAN CONFESS HIM AS YOUR ONLY HOPE OF SALVATION, YOU WILL NEVER BE SAVED
WHEN YOU DO COME TO THAT PLACE, EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE
HAVE YOU RESPONDED PROPERLY TO THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST?

CONCLUSION

IN HEAVEN THEY KNOW THAT NAME. IN HEAVEN THEY PRAISE THAT NAME.
IN HELL THEY KNOW THAT NAME.
THOSE IN HELL WILL ONE DAY BOW AND AND PRAISE THAT NAME
SATAN HIMSELF WILL BOW AND PRAISE THAT NAME
DOESN’T IT MAKE SENSE TO TELL CHRIST THAT YOU HAVE A VACANCY FOR HIM ONLY IN YOUR HEART
DON’T YOU WANT TO DO IT WHEN IT CAN SAVE YOU
SEEK THE LORD WHILE HE MAY BE FOUND
“THERE’S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME”
