What is in a name! Power in Cathy Merritt’s name… No! Is there power in your name – probably not, but one name above all name has power. The Name of Jesus Christ our Savior. At least my Savior and when you use his name it has power to back it up.
Now names do have meanings – at least most names do. My name Cathy in the Greek means “pure.” Don’s name Donald means “ruler of the world.” So you can really find names that have powerful meanings.
Now I am going to make this simple and not go through all the forms and languages, Jesus is a form of the name Joshua which means – “Jehovah means salvation,” and Christ in Greek means the “Anointed One.” So Jesus Christ is the Salvation from Jehovah, and Christ is the Anointed One, the Messiah.
When we study God’s Word, it teaches us about the spoken word of God. It talks about what we, “say.” It is the words we speak out that are powerful! The strongest word we can possibly speak out is the name of Jesus. One word. One name—the name of our Lord and Savior.
In Proverbs 18:10, “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”
The name of Jesus heals, sets free, saves, delivers and much more. The name of Jesus can cast out a demon. It can take an evil spirit that has invaded someone’s life and by the name of Jesus that spirit is driven out! That is the power of Jesus’ name. The power of His name creates miracles. So from my point of view, his name is a blessing to all who understand the power of His name.
