A Name Above Every Name

Prophecies went out about One Who would come

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” (Is. 7:14 NKJV)

And the prophecies were fulfilled…

Secreted behind the veil of eternity, the Word existed, and in the fullness of time, God ripped that curtain from the heavenly top to the earthly bottom to fully reveal His Son.

“And (Mary) brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:7 KJV)

When Jesus came to earth, He threw off His robe of celestial royalty and dressed Himself in a tiny, pink suit of humanity, and from the birth-manger to the death-tomb, “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” (John 1:14 NKJV)

Jesus. The Word of God. Immanuel. Wonderful. Counselor. Mighty God. Everlasting Father. Prince of Peace. A Name above every name. 
No matter which name you use, calling on the Son of God has…

*averted disasters

*shut the gates of hell

*turned away tornadoes

*given sight to the blind

*given hearing to the deaf

*opened the portals of heaven

*brought salvation to lost souls

*given the lame the ability to walk

*delivered those oppressed by demons

*saved the lives of those in car wrecks

*healed limbs, ears, eyes, and other diseases

*and even brought some back from death’s grip.

Dependence on that Name for every detail of life is essential.
When the guards escorted Jesus to confront Pilate to be tried, Pilate said, “What then am I to do with Jesus?” (Matt. 27:22 Phillips) Peter said, “There is salvation in no one else! There is no other name in all of heaven for people to call on to save them.” (Acts 4:12 NLT)

Paul said of Jesus, “God raised Him up to the heights of heaven and gave Him a name which is above every other name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Phil. 2:9-11 TLB) Amen!

What do you do with this Jesus, this Name above all names? Do you call on that Name? Do you totally depend on that Name? Do you live a lifestyle that upholds that Precious and Wonderful Name? 

Maybe your soul is suffering this year. Maybe you have lost a loved one. Maybe divorce has ripped your family apart. Maybe your best friend has deserted you. Maybe your child is out of a job or has gotten into trouble. Maybe foreclosure is knocking at your door.

Maybe you really aren’t suffering any dire circumstances right now. Maybe you are just rushed and busy.

I pray that whatever is going on in your life, you will take time to bring honor to that precious Name. May you celebrate this season because of His Name.
