There is power in the Name of Jesus

There is power in the Name of Jesus! One day, one glorious day at the name of Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is LORD! Philippians 2:10-11

I had to get up and run around the house after I wrote those words! Until that day He has given believers authority to use the name of Jesus with power and authority.

Last weekend I had the honor of going up into the mountains with an amazing church for a women’s retreat. Our theme for the weekend was, Our Identity in Christ. On Saturday morning I was telling the story of what happened to Dale when his heart stopped after our car accident at Christmas. I told the group at the moment it happened that I commanded Dale in the Name of Jesus Christ to be healed and to live. After the morning session a woman came up to me and said, “When you said, ‘In the name of Jesus. . .’ my hip/leg pain started to heal. I’ve had this pain for quite a while, and I could feel it being healed when you said the words, “In the name of Jesus. . . “

She emailed me this week and said she is thanking God every day for the healing. I got another email from a woman who came to the retreat with kidney stones. She said she had her kidney scanned Monday after the retreat and the stone was crushed.

There is something powerful about that name, Jesus. I don’t know what’s going on in your life. But this I know-when I call on the name of Jesus, circumstances change. Satan hates it when we call on Jesus’ name.  You may be “hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Cor. 4:8,9) when you call on the all- powerful name—Jesus.

In the name of Jesus there is power!



Acts 4:12, “Neither is there Salvation in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

2 Thessalonians 1:12, “That the name of our LORD Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in Him, according to the grace of our God and the LORD Jesus Christ.”

John 14:13, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Acts 2:38,”Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

Col. 3:17, “Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

Mark 16:17-18, “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; . . .they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

Luke 10:17,The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.”

    Could you please pray for my dad? He's battling a 3rd and completely different cancer. The Lord healed him if the two previous one - he's a living miracle! The Lord has preserved him for a purpose! He faces his last round of chemo this coming week. Please pray the cancer is gone forever, that the chemo, doesn't harm his body. The mood swings and effects of the cancer flee. Pray for mom - his primary caretaker. She's beat, never the less. Both are believers - PTL!
    Thank you for the refreshing of my spirit, hope, and faith! Blessings!!!

    Praising our Lord Jesus of Nazareth for the healing of the kidney stone that was blocking my right kidney. As the Radiology Technician said, "it's like it was crushed!" HALLELUJAH!! I said..yes, it was and smiled at Jesus. The report also confirmed that I have two on the right kidney: 8mm and 5mm and an 11mm on the left kidney. I continue to claim their "crushing" and Praise Jesus for my healing. Thank you for allowing yourself to be used by our King of Kings to teach me the power in the name of Jesus for me. Always knew this however always thought that I was being selfish claiming it for me. Today I know that that thought was not from the Holy Spirit of Jesus.
    On this day, I am also starting the 30 day challenge that you posed. Claiming my healing, in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, from my head to my toes AND the gift of discerning the voice of the Holy Spirit.
    Praying for you and your family Sharon. May the Peace of Jesus be with you!!!! :-D

      WOW...Cuky, thanks for sharing your testimony here with us in person! I love that it was described as "crushed". Genesis talks about the serpent being "crushed", and it's thrilling to see this "crushing" of illness in the Name of Jesus!

      As one who started the 30-Day Challenge and couldn't stop, you're going to be so blessed. Just this morning again another truth hit me as I read from Eph 3: 20, "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us..." Although I've gleaned so many truths from this verse already, today what spoke so deeply to my heart was the word "is". "According to his power that IS at work within us." It's not that might be...or could be...or will be...but IS!!! Currently, His power IS at work within me. Praise the Lord!!!

      Rejoicing with you and giving all the thanks to our Healer and Deliverer. May you experience full and complete healing in the Name of Jesus. Amen. So be it. Amen.
