Faith in THE NAME
Isaiah 43 (NKJV)
Thus SAYS the Lord = God’s faith is in operation
- Faith is a Force
- Hebrews 1:3 à the Word of His POWER (NOT His powerful word)
- “Light BE” the word dominated darkness and produced light (John 1:5)
Name=> Shem (Shame) à The Name (as in a designation of God), fame, glory, reputation, memorial, monument. What you are deemed to be.
- Satan’s best tactics are as follows:
- To convince you that you are something that you are not
- To stop you from ever learning who you are in Christ Jesus and what is available to you
- Ephesians 1:18 (Jordan) “May you know the hope which his call inspires and the wonderful resources available to Christians because of their membership in His family”
What were you deemed to be?
1 Corinthians 15:45-49
You were deemed to bear the image of God Himself. You have been redeemed through Jesus Christ to bear that image by bearing HIS name (He has called you by his name).
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
Mathew 6:9 In this manner, therefore, pray Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
2 Timothy 2:19
Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ[c] depart from iniquity.”
Name => Onomazo à to utter a name, to be named, to bear the name of a person or thing
Name => Onoma à the name is used for everything which the name covers, everything the thought or feeling of which is aroused in the mind by mentioning, hearing, remembering, the name, i.e. for one’s rank, authority, interests, pleasure, command, excellences, deeds etc.
You bear everything that they anointing of the name of Jesus covers
And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
12 “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. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask[c] anything in My name, I will do it.
