There might still be a little doubt in your heart about whether or not you really are like God. Don’t let the devil deceive you dear friend, you are truly like God and you have Jesus to thank for that! By living a sacrificial life as a man and for calling us all unto righteousness, Jesus bought you the life of God which makes you like God. However before we get too hung up on this fact, here’s a quick illustration so that puts us in place; 2+2= 4 while 3+1= 4, both equations equal 4 but they are not the same equation, right? That is exactly how you are with God, you are alike with God, but you are not The God. Stick with me through this series as the Holy Spirit sheds light in your heart.
Jesus, even though his birth and life as a whole as been prophesied by the prophets of old a long time ago, was born like a normal human child maybe even a little bit normal because he was born in a manger. Baby Jesus was not breathing fire or healing the sick as a baby, he still had to grow up like a normal child. Jesus till his baptism by John his forerunner and the baptism of the Holy Spirit in form of the dove descending on him was still regular human Jesus. We can say it was the baptism that set him apart and gave him the anointing…..that was when he became Jesus the Christ. The Christ is not just a cool nick name or a street name, ‘The Christ’ means; the anointed one and his anointing. Deep right? Now hold that thought for a moment. Think about this, after Jesus was anointed and publicly announced as the son of God by God himself, Jesus still went through all he went through as a man but he was able to do that by the strength that the spirit of God supplies, by the wisdom of God, all he did he did by his total dependence on God…despite being human!
Now, the anointed Jesus had a choice to do whatever he wanted with his anointing, he could have ruled as a king, after all they wanted to crown him a couple of times but thank God, Jesus Christ chose to be led by God and He was obedient to the leading that is why He is able to draw men to Him. Earlier in your reading, I mentioned how 2+2 and 3+1 =4 but they are not the same right? Well Jesus and God are 2+2 and they both equal 4 which means they are one and the same. Jesus did not think it as being underprivileged to come live like a human and die for mankind, Phil 2:6-11…’Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 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’.
Jesus’ name was made the final authority over issues and principality, every knee bows at the mention of the name of Jesus Christ. The good news is, if you are born again and you are blood bought, you can lay claim to that name! You can tell situations to move in the name of Jesus and they will. Peter and John met a certain lame man at the beautiful gate, the man begged them for alms and he got legs instead. A seemingly helpless situation was changed by the mention of the name of Jesus. Rf: Acts 2:3-11.
The name of Jesus has fixed situations for people, it has healed bodies, mended hearts and raised and is still raising the dead. Jesus Christ in his final days on earth told his disciples that if they will ask anything in his name, they would get it. John 14:14….’If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it’.
I can go on and on about how powerful the name of Jesus is but that’s not enough, what will do is for everyone to have an experiential knowledge of the His name. Dear friend, you need to first of, believe that Jesus is, and believe in the power of resurrection because that is where it all began. So please stay with me, as we unveil faith as a supernatural authority that a believer has.
Foreword step: It is possible to hear this things, be stirred up, but totally forget about it along the way. Right now, say a word of prayer… laying claim to the power in the name of Jesus, and tearing down issues and strongholds in your life. The power in the name is still mighty to save and as long as you believe, you will get your Miracle.
