Philippians 2:9-11

“Therefore God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, that at the mention of the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, of those in heaven, those on earth and those under the earth and that every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the Father.”

The name Jesus is a Greek male name meaning “Saviour”.

There is a great number of Jewish males who has the name Jesus, but what made Jesus Christ so special?

Unlike us who got our names from family members, Jesus Christ got His name from heaven delivered to His parents by angels. He really did what the meaning of His name is, He saved us.

By being faithful to the task given to Him, humbling Himself, even becoming obedient to the point of death and volunteering to die for the sins of many, God exalted Jesus Christ by giving power to the name of Jesus Christ.

Now we know a name that is above all other names given on earth. There is now no situation that is above the name of Jesus. No preacher, doctor, sangoma or demon’s name can be compared to the name of Jesus Christ, for it is a strong tower where the saints run to.

Whatever we face, our first option should always be to call upon the name of Jesus Christ, for through that name the foundations are shaken and demons tremble.

Diabetes is just another name, HIV is just a name, poverty is just a name, so is depression, loneliness, unemployment and all of those things keeping you captive.

The Bible teaches us that there is a name above all other names that we know. Whatever circumstances, trials or tribulations we are facing, they are just names which are all under one greater name – Jesus Christ.

So when you are feeling down and out and in need of direction, call upon the name of Jesus and He shall set you free.

For He is the way, the truth and the life. We now have the proxy of Jesus Christ and that is why when we pray, we pray in the name of Jesus Christ and then heaven has to respond because the name of Jesus is like an identification card, whenever we use it heaven will respond.
