When Jesus died as the substitute sacrifice to receive the punishment
that man deserved, He abundantly paid for redemption and restoration
of all things, in heaven and on earth. He reconciled all things back unto
God and canceled all legal charges and ordinances that gave right to the
enemy to afflict man. In His resurrection, He disarmed the principalities
and powers, took away their armor, shamed them publicly, and
subdued them eternally (Colossians 2:14-15). Because of His obedience,
the Father subjected all things under Him and seated in the seat of
authority far above all principalities and powers (Ephesians 1:20-22).
God also gave Him a name (the position of Lordship) that is above every
other name (authority). Hence whenever His authority is invoked,
whether personally or by His representatives, all other authorities (or
entities) must bow in submission and surrender.
The name of Jesus is not an ordinary name. The authority in the name is
far above the reach of principalities and powers. The enemy has no
answer to the power in His name. Sickness cannot resist the authority
in the name of Jesus. Nothing named in heaven or earth, in this world
or the one to come can stand against the name of Jesus. His name is a
strong tower, and a weapon of war. Everyone who believes and calls on
His name is saved and made to be more than conqueror. If you know
Him, there is no need to attempt to conquer what He has already
conquered; just call the name of Jesus. No need to allow the works of
the enemy persist any minute longer; call on the name of Jesus.
Miracles, signs, and wonder are available to those who believe and call
on His name. Call the name today and experience your miracle. Can you
shout the name – Jesus!
Prayer Focus: Lord, I insist that because the Son of God was made
manifest, every work of darkness in my life, family and surrounding be
destroyed today in the name of Jesus.
