Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:5 (HCSB)

There is no other name by which we may be saved (Acts 4:12)! At the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord (Philippians 2). His name is powerful, beautiful, holy, eternal, life giving and matchless. His name is above all other names both on earth and in heaven (Philippians 2:9-10). Yes, there is power in the name of Jesus, so take time and linger, get to know His names!

His name is Yeshua. He is Life (John 14:6). He is the Word of God become flesh (John 1:14, Revelation 19:13). He is Light of the world (John 8:12) and He is the only way (John 14:6). Jesus is a friend of “tax collectors” and sinners (Matthew 11:19). He is the Truth (John 14:6). He is the Bread of Life (John 6:35). He is the Gate (John 10:7) and He is the good Shepherd (John 10:14). He is the I am (John 8:58). He is the Passover Lamb (John 1:19, 1 Corinthians 5:7). He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5). He is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6, Ephesians 2:14), and Immanuel (Matthew 1:23). He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16). He is the Alpha and Omega (Revelation 1:8), the First and Last (Revelation1:17), the Beginning and the End (Revelation 22:13). He is Suffering Servant (Isaiah 53), the Son of God (John 3:16, Matthew 16:16) and the Son of Man (Acts 7:56). Jesus is “the man from heaven” (1 Corinthians 15:49). He is the Vine (John 15:1), the Firstborn of all creation (Colossians 1:15), the second Adam (Romans 5:15, 1 Corinthians 15:22). He is Rider of the White horse, who is Faithful and True (Revelation 19:11). Jesus is the coming Bridegroom (John 3:29, Revelation 19:7, 22:17). He is the savior of the world (1 John 4:14, John 4:42). Jesus Christ is the Messiah (John 1:41, 4:25-26), and the Judge who rules with justice, sovereignty and an iron scepter in His hand (Revelation 19:15).

He is the glorious Man, Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).

Get to know His names, because it is in His names that He is revealed! His name represents His character, His authority, and His fame! Take some time and marinate in these names of Jesus Christ. As you linger in these names, may they become as a fragrance upon you. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal more of Him, and more of His names to you. Ask Him for the Spirit of wisdom and revelation that you might know Him better (Ephesians 1:17). Pray that you might know the height, the depth, the width and length of the love of Christ, even to the full measure of God (Ephesians 3:18-19). Pray for your pastor that he might KNOW Jesus better, deeper and more intimately!
