What’s in a name

There is a name that brings more controversy than any other. It is a name above all names. It is a name of power. It is a name that brings salvation to those who call upon it.
That name is Jesus!
Don’t let me mislead you, it’s not just the name Jesus that causes such turmoil. There are many with the name Jesus. In the Greek we receive the name Jesus and it is defined as “savior” while in the Hebrew this name is known as Joshua or Jeshua.
What makes this name so special is the adjectives used to describe this name. Jesus “Christ”, Jesus “the Messiah”, Jesus “the son of God” etc…

IT’S A CONTROVERSIAL NAME

In this world today, you can pray to or worship God, Allah, Buddha, etc.… You could even pray to or worship satan. All these are socially accepted but there is one name that will cause people to get all bent out of shape and that is the name of Jesus.
Christ warns us in Matthew chapter 10 verse 22 that we will be hated by all men because of his name sake.
Matthew 10:22 KJV 1900
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Also in John chapter 15; Christ speaking again warns us that we will be persecuted because of his name.
John 15:20–21 KJV 1900
Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

IT’S A NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES

In Philippians chapter 2 verse 9 we are told that God has given his son Jesus a name that is above every other name.
Philippians 2:9 KJV 1900
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

IT’S A POWERFUL NAME

In the book of Acts we read a story of the Apostle Paul casting a demon out of a young girl. This young lady or damsel followed Paul and his party antagonizing them till Paul finally had enough and he turned to the Damsel and commanded the spirit to leave her in the NAME of Jesus.
Acts 16:16–18 KJV 1900
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
The name of Jesus is so powerful “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” ()
Philippians 2:10–11 KJV 1900
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Philippians 2:10–11 KJV 1900
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Acts 16:16–18 KJV 1900
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

IT’S A SAVING NAME

According to God’s Holy Word it is in that name that man is saved. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Acts 4:12 KJV 1900
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Have you called upon the name of Jesus?

Have you received the salvation found in His name? says that “whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”.

Romans 10:13 KJV 1900
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
