In the ancient world, it was believed that the gods hid their true names from humanity. By using the true name of god in prayers and magical incantations, people believed that they could exert power over the god, to get him or her to do what you wanted. This background helps us to understand what the Bible says about the power of Jesus’ name.
The Bible tells us that God has exalted His name to the highest place of all (Philippians 2:9–11). The name of Jesus is more powerful than any other name in the universe. Jesus has promised His children that anything that we ask in His name will be done. (John 14:13; See also John 16:26-27).
The marvelous thing is that although the names of power in antiquity were often hidden and mysterious, God has revealed the true name of power to His children. The angel said to Joseph,
She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins(Matthew 1:21).
There’s no magical power in the name of “Jesus”, but all the power of omnipotence belongs to the One who bears it. Through Jesus, all the treasures of heaven are at the disposal of God’s children.
Have you ever had the experience of crying out in the name of Jesus, and immediately felt His presence and power? Share this experience with others for their encouragement, whether through social media or any other means.
