The Wonderful Name of Jesus (2)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater  works  than these he will do, because I go to My Father.    And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be  glorified in the Son." (John 14:12-13 NKJV)
 The significance of the Name of Jesus to the believer consist in the fact that having identified with Him through salvation, we have received the power of attorney to act in His name, to act in His stead.
 Jesus during His earthly ministry raised the dead, healed the sick, delivered people from the oppression of the devil, He preached the gospel in the power of the Spirit (Luke 4:18-19); demons could not withstand His presence (Mark 5:6). In summary, the earthly ministry of Jesus  was a raw demonstration of the power of God and this power has been vested in His Name.
The measure of Jesus' ability is the measure of the value of His name; and all supernatural ability and might that is invested in His Name belongs to the Church TOADY for He given us unqualified identification  with His name.
 We have received power of attorney to act in His name i.e we have a legal authority to act on His behalf - we are the legal representatives of Jesus on earth today.
 It means we can do what He did (John 14:12-14) - It means Jesus can do through us everything He intends to do on earth today as though He is physically present.
All hail! No more defeat; gone forever is the dominion of the devil; never again will we be subject to the devil. Having identified with the Name of Jesus, we have been made conquerors, more than conquerors we are!
Jesus, the captain of our salvation has disarmed the devil, he has 'spoilt' principalities and the spiritual wickedness in  heavenly places; and He has given us the authority "not to fight for victory" but to ADMINISTER His victory over demons, circumstances, sickness, and the system of this present evil world: In his Name we reign as kings in life, So says Romans 5:17:
"For if by the one man’s offence death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ."
We have identified with highest the Name in heaven, on earth and under the earth, we are   'hyper-conquerors'. seen it?

The Wonderful Name of Jesus (1)

"And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and  became  obedient to  the    point    of  death, even the death of the cross.  Therefore God also  has highly exalted Him and  given Him the name which is above every name,"  (Philippians 2:8-9 NKJV)
We know the names of kings, princes and the nobles which are respected among humans; many have even taken it upon themselves to learn the names of demons by heart, they 'revere' those names claiming that such names should not be called any how, because calling it could invoke evil. Whatever that means.
But there is a Name that is above all Names - the Name of Jesus!  All other Names in heaven and earth are subject to Him, demons tremble at instance of His Name.
The Name of Jesus is more than an ordinary name, it is more than a name! it's 'reservoir' of supernatural power; full of power
Salvation, deliverance, forgiveness and freedom from sin, ascendancy over the devil and much more comes by identifying with His Name. 
When all other names would have faded and fizzle out His will remain fresh and powerful, full of wonder and might!
