Praying In The Name of Jesus (1)

"And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it." (John 14:13, 14 NKJV)
The Name of Jesus has given entirely different outlook to Prayer.
The believer's Prayer is based on the access granted through Christ Jesus (Eph.3:12). Hence, there is no such thing as unanswered payer, there can only be prayer of unbelief or we can only pray amiss. All the prayers we call unanswered are either Prayers prayed in unbelief or prayers not prayed according to His will (1 John 5:14; James 4:3) 
Praying in the name of Jesus does not necessarily mean to mention His Name while praying. Just like Jesus said in John 10:25, that He is doing His work in His Father's Name, yet, he didn't go around saying "in the Name of God, rise up and walk". There is nothing wrong in literarily mentioning His Name while praying, but the most important issue is that there is a spiritual relationship between the praying man and bearer of that great Name.
Anytime someone who has identified with Jesus by accepting Him as his Lord and Savior is praying, the person is accepted by God as praying in the Name of Jesus.
The implication is that, there is no more barrier, believers can pray freely through Jesus with utmost confidence of being heard.
"according to his eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord. In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence."(Ephesians 3:11, 12 NIV)
Go ahead and pray without holding back, dear saints of God, for the Name of Jesus avails for you. blessed?

Authority In The Name of Jesus

"And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying,  “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:18, 19 NKJV)Just before He ascended to be seated at the right hand of the father, Jesus said "All power is given me in heaven and in earth." He immediately delegated His authority to the Church by saying "go ye therefore", meaning: "because” all power is mine, go! I will work through you; I will speak through you; I will manifest my power through you; nothing will be able to resist you;
and in the same breath, He said in Mark 16  that in His name signs will accompany the believers. 
 Jesus has been lifted to the highest position of the Universe. he is seated at the right hand of the Father on high, far above all power. Ephesians 1:19-23 
God has conferred upon Him the highest name in the Universe
 According to Philippians 2:5-8 . God has bestowed upon Him, honor, glory and power
 "The right hand of God" where Christ is seated does not mean that Christ is seated literarily on the right hand side of God: It is a figurative expression that describes the fact that Jesus is occupying the highest position of power and authority in heaven and earth.
 The Name of Jesus has all the dignity, all the majesty, and all the glory of His person and everyone who has come to identify with His name can do great works and even greater; we can administer His authority over demons, evil and circumstances of life. 
When you know it, enter into it, and your heart grows accustomed to it, you will walk in such victory you have never known.

The Salvation of God by Reinhard Bonke

The greatest and most costly of all God’s works is salvation. It was a challenge to His omnipotence to which He responded with infinite love and sacrifice. His supreme claim was that He alone could save. It lay uniquely within His sovereign will. Jesus came to fulfill God’s will that the Divine order would go into full operation for the salvation of mankind. The power of the will of God broke through on earth. For the first time ever known, the ‘lost’ were found. Jesus singled out sinful people considered beyond the pale, called them to Himself and restored them. Our Lord Jesus did more than save a few prodigals. He produced evidence of what the future would be - the day of salvation was coming, when the Holy Spirit of God would be at work, and the stream of those repenting and confessing would never end. We rejoice, because we swim in the glorious river of God. Have a blessed day. God bless you. REINHARD BONNKE

Salvation Through The Name of Jesus

"Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12 NKJV)
There is No name except that divinely appointed one, Mat 1:21, by which  a man can be saved  - none given under heaven - no other means ever devised by God Himself for the salvation of a lost world.
God resolved in His purpose and decree,  in His counsel and covenant, upon the salvation of the world; and He appointed His Son to be the means of salvation; He determined He would save the world by Him, and by no other, and in no other way; hence whoever is saved, must be saved by Him, 
Hosea 1:7  "But I will have mercy on Judah and will give them salvation by the Lord their God, but not by the bow or the sword or by fighting or by horses or horsemen." (BBE, the Arabic version adds, "unless by him only").
"Jesus said to him,  “I am  the way,  the truth, and  the life.  No one comes to the Father  except through Me." (John 14:6 NKJV)
 He was the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world; and no man ever came, or can come, to the Father but by him.
As regards the means of salvation, there is no other name; object or person, be it ever so great, or whatever religion or pious devotion, neither  show of power and strength, of holiness, religion,  nor influence as the name of kings, princes, and the great men in the world; none but the name of Jesus, His  person, blood, and righteousness.
Religion cannot save, only Jesus saves. Have you met Jesus?

The Word on Air

It's been wonderful proclaiming the gospel of power on air. There's really nothing better than this. Lives changed, people set free from life of defeat, the souls of men received enlightenment from the word, the name of The Lord glorified.
It's a privilege and honour to bear such an invaluable and glorious message. "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us." (II Corinthians 4:7 NKJV)

"And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come"(Matthew 24:14 NKJV)
