Devotional Thought: Jesus Name, Apostolic Authority, and Dominion Power!
Everything the early church experienced revolved around proclaiming and testifying the name of Jesus. Proclaiming the Name of Jesus, the one true God, is powerful.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Colossians 3:17
Knowing one God, in the identity of Christ, helps us to realize who we are in Christ. We cannot truly understand who we are until we recognize who He is and “who He is in us and through us!”
Jesus has all power. As believers, we have access to that same authority and power through His name, His Word, and sonship in His kingdom.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Matthew 28:18
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. Ephesians 1:18-23
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. Philippians 2:10-11
By calling on the Name of Jesus and exercising His authority, we can defeat satanic forces and witness. great salvation, deliverance, and restoration.
