THE NAME ABOVE ALL – Pastor Chris
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth (Philippians 2:10).
Our opening verse is so profound! It says every knee should bow to Jesus. Who could this be? Who is this Jesus that at His Name every knee has to bow? There’s only One who claims that every knee should bow to Him, and that’s the Lord God: “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear” (Isaiah 45:22-23).
We then find in Psalm 138:2 that the name “Jehovah” is encapsulated in the very Name Jesus: “… for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.” Jesus is the Word magnified and personified. The Bible says He’s “far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come” (Ephesians 1:21 NIV). We’ve been given that Name to live by, to use, and it works all the time.
Some people have narrated how, when they were sleeping, some force came over them and pushed on their chest. They struggled to get rid of whatever it was to no avail and tried to call the Name of Jesus, but their mouths were heavy. However, the moment they were able to get the Name of Jesus out of their mouths, the thing disappeared instantly. Hallelujah!
When we call the Name of Jesus, things happen in the realm of the spirit. Angels are dispatched on your behalf. Demons bow and limitations are destroyed. Situations turn around for your good. Call that Name today. Call it over your city. Call it over your state. Call it over your country. Call it over this world! We’ve been given a treasure so great, and it behooves us to use it. It’s the Name of Jesus!
PRAYER / CONFESSION
Dear Father, thank you for the power in the Name of Jesus, the Name above all names. By the power of that Name, I declare the dominion of truth, righteousness, justice and peace over all nations. I declare that I’m living the higher life of glory you prearranged for me; I dwell in health, safety, peace and prosperity today and always. Amen.
