"The Name"

“The Name”


Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.       Acts 4:12

For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. “        Romans 10:13

Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in Heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.       

Philippians 2:9-11


Many parents-to-be look for that “special” name for their child.  And in looking for that “special” name, they seek out the meaning of the name, because they want to somehow, bless that child with the attributes of the name.  In other words, it is their HOPE that the child will live up to the meaning of its name.


An Angel of the Lord appeared to Mary delivering the GOOD NEWS of God’s plans.  The angel told her that she would conceive and give birth to a son, and that she should name Him, JESUS.  He told her that JESUS would be GREAT and would be called the Son of the Most High.  An Angel of the Lord, also appeared to Joseph and told him about the birth and that he and Mary should give the baby the NAME of JESUS, because He will SAVE His people from their sins.


This must have thrilled their hearts, but it probably caused them to wonder about this “SPECIAL” child.  Would He live up to His NAME?  I think that the life of Jesus was very indicative of His NAME.  And what a POWERFUL NAME it is!


The SALVATION of mankind is found in no other person, because there is NO OTHER NAME under Heaven given to mankind by which they might be SAVED.  EVERYONE who calls on the NAME of the Lord will be SAVED.  Our ETERNITY depends on the NAME of JESUS.  If we call on His NAME for the SALVATION of our souls we will be saved. 


How, you might ask, do I do that?  You need to come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, because the Holy Scriptures tells us that at the NAME of JESUS EVERY knee will bow, in Heaven and on earth and under the earth, and EVERY tongue will confess that JESUS CHRIST is LORD!  And you MUST call on His NAME, in order to spend ALL of ETERNITY in HEAVEN.  So do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
