“IN THE NAME!”
(Nothing Can Withstand The Awesome Name Of Jesus)
TO THE BIBLE
Mark 16:17-18 NIV
“And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
When you look at a tree, you can tell what type of tree it is by the kind of fruit it produces. Every orange tree always brings forth oranges, while apple trees always bear apples. In the same vein, those who believe in the Lord have special fruits that they bear: special signs that show that they truly believe, which are: casting out devils, speaking with new tongues, being unharmed by serpents and deadly things, laying hands on the sick and the sick recovering.
However, as beautiful as these characteristic features of those who believe in the Lord Jesus are, the most beautiful part of Mark 16:17-18 is one little construction; the three-word phrase: “In my Name.” Jesus gave us the power of attorney to use His Name. You’ve got the authority to act as His full legal representative. That’s the most awesome thing on the face of the earth, and it means you can go anywhere in the Name of Jesus and have heaven’s respect! You can pray in the Name of Jesus and be heard. In His Name, you have authority over devils, you speak with new tongues and can’t be hurt by snakes. If you drink any deadly thing, you’ll not be hurt, and when you lay your hands on anyone who’s sick, they’ll recover. Awesome!
No one or demon, sickness or trouble can stand against that awesome Name of Jesus! In His Name, you’re more than a conqueror, a victor, and a champion forever. Hallelujah!
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Dear Father, thank you for the right to use the Name of Jesus and see results. I use the power of that awesome Name today and put a stop to every evil deed around me. I only allow those things that are consistent with your plans and purpose for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
