     We’re going to continue on the subject of healing for our physical bodies.

     I. I want to pick up with JOHN 15:7. (I know we looked at this V last time, but it’s so good.)

              A. The Wuest translation says, “If you maintain a living communion with me and my Words are at home in you, I command you to ask, at once, something for yourself, whatever your heart desires, and it will become yours.” (JOHN 15:7)

                        1. Notice that He says, “If you maintain a living communion with me.”

                                  a. From this we can see “Remaining in Communion or in Fellowshipwith the Lord is essential for us to receive the desires of our heart.

                        2. The 2nd prerequisite that Jesus gives here is that His Words must abide in you.

                                  a. You need to have the Word of God in your heart.

                                 b. Jesus said in (John 8:32) “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

                                           i. What would we do if we were confronted with the enemy?

                                           ii. We need to use the Word of God against him.

                        3. According to what Jesus said in (JOHN 15:7) If we have fellowship with the Lord and believe God’s Word, we should ask, in Jesus’ name, and receive what we ask for.

     II. Look with me to ACTS 3: 1-9

              A. Notice in (V 6) Peter said, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.” (KJV)

                        1. There’s healing in the name of Jesus.

                        2. Paul said to a demon in (ACT 16:18) “I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out.

                                  a. There’s deliverance in the name of Jesus.

              B. Jesus left his name with us, and we have been given the right to use that name.

                        1. (Philippians 2:9-10) Says, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.”

                                  a. Satan must respect that Name which is above every name, and his entire kingdom must obey our command when given in the Name of Jesus.

                        1. Of course as long as it’s in line with the will of God.

                        2. In (LUKE 10:17) the disciples said, “Even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.” (Through the name of Jesus.)

                        3. It was Jesus who conquered sin, Satan, disease, death, hell, and the grave; and we have a legal right to use that name.

                        4. ACTS 2:38

                                  a. There’s salvation in the Name of Jesus.

                                  b. The possibilities involved in the name of Jesus are beyond our understanding.

                                  c. When Jesus said, “Whatsoever ye ask the Father in My Name,” He was giving us a signed check on the resources of heaven.

                        5. If you need healing, find out what the Word of God says, so that you can receive what is in the name of Jesus.

                                  a. There’s healing in the Name, there’s deliverance in the Name, there’s safety in the Name, there’s prosperity in the Name, there’s salvation in the Name, there’s power in the Name.

                                  b. In (MATT 28:18) it says, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.”

                                           i. That word “Power” there is the Greek word “exousia” which means “authority, jurisdiction.”

                                           ii. Some say, “Oh, that doesn’t mean Power?”

                                           iii. If you have the Authority to do something then you have the Power to back it up.

                                           iv. Look at MARK 16:15-18

                                                     a. Jesus has given us His Name to use, and there’s Power in that name.

                                  b. According to (JOHN 15:16) Jesus is saying, “If you ask the Father in My Name, I will endorse that petition, and the Father will give you anything I have endorsed.”

     III. JOHN 11:41 (This is talking about Lazarus)

              A. We know that the Father always hears Jesus, and when we pray in Jesus’ Name, it’s as though Jesus himself were doing the praying.

                        1. If you need healing, you can ask the Father for it, in Jesus’ Name, believe that He hears you, and you will find your sickness leave.

                                  a. WHY?

                        2. 1JOHN 5:14-15

                                  a. It’s yours. You have a right to it.

                                  b. Ask him for it and receive your health, in the Name of Jesus.

                                  c. (JOH 16:23-24) Says, “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. (24) Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” (KJV)

                        3. If you need healing, you can ask the Father for it, in the Name of Jesus, and you shall receive your healing, so that your joy may be full.

                                  a. Peter took Jesus at His Word, and said to the lame man, In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

                                  b. THAT NAME HAS NEVER LOST ITS POWER.

              B. People are saved through that NAME.

                        1. (ACT 4:12) Says, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

                        2. You can pray and make your petitions to the Father in that NAME.

                        3. In that NAME the lame, impotent, and helpless were healed and made to walk again.

                        4. Jesus said, In (MAR 16:17), “In my NAME shall they cast out devils.”

                                  a. Paul proved that, Paul said to an evil spirit, In (ACT 16:18), “I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.” (KJV)

              C. What power that NAME has for the Church.

                        1. According to (COL 3:17), we’re taught: “Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, {do} all in the name of the Lord Jesus.”

                        2. In (EPH 5:20) It says, “Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

                                  a. We are to be giving thanks for all things in the name Jesus.

                        3. In (HEB 13:15) we’re told to offer the sacrifice of praise to his name. (KJV)

                        4. In (JAMES 5:14) We’re instructed to anoint the sick with oil in the name of the Lord: (KJV)

                        5. In (1JOHN 3:23) We’re informed: This is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ.

                        6. THE NAME of JESUS touches every phase of the Christian life and it will never lose it’s power.
