WEAPONS OF WARFARE: THE NAME OF THE LORD (Philippians 2:5-11)

 

One of our sure weapons of warfare against the enemy is the name of the Lord. At the mention of the name Jesus Christ, all things both living and non living are bound to obey. The authority of the New Testament church is packaged in that name, regardless of whosoever calls it, as long as you have relationship with Jesus Himself, you are bound to get the desired result.

V9-11 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father”.

I remember as a young boy when a popular Yoruba actor; Hubert Ogunde died and one of his sons was interviewed n television. This man is believed to have magical powers that were been used in his films back then. The son said his father and troupe used to invite spirits when they need their assistance for certain things. He went on further that at times unwanted spirits used to come too and the whole situation will become chaotic and in such situation, his father and other people will be shouting the name of Jesus to scare them all away! Demons cannot stand His name.

The name of the Lord is a refuge, Proverbs 18:10 “The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe”. When in any form of danger, and you call on Him, He will definitely answer.

“Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists took it upon themselves to call the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, we exorcise you by the Jesus whom Paul preaches. Also there were seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, who did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are you? Then the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, overpowered them, and prevailed against them,[3] so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified”. If you don’t have personal relationship with the person of Jesus, the name will not work for you. Always pray in faith using the name of Jesus as a seal over your prayers.

 

Prayer point: I claim my inheritance in Christ in Jesus mighty name.
