Diminishing The Darkness By Lifting Up The Marvelous Light Of Jesus Christ

From the Editor... by Marcia Greenwood
Today, many Christians are aware that much of the world tries to limit or even do away with using the name of Jesus.  But this is actually nothing new. 

Why is this?  And who is behind it?  The devil of course!  He knows that the name of Jesus is powerful.  No other name has the power behind it. So if using the name of Jesus can be banned, then the devil doesn’t care what name to whom people pray.

Acts 2:21 says that – Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Let’s read an example from the past of how people tried to ban using the name of Jesus.

In Acts, chapter 4, the Sadducees came to Peter and John and were grieved that the apostles were teaching in the name of Jesus.

Verse 16: What can we do to stop people from learning of this miracle (of healing)?

What do we do with those speaking in the name of Jesus, the priests and Sadducees said?  We must warn them to no longer speak in his name.

Verse 19: Peter and John told them to judge for yourself whether we should obey God or you in this matter. So upon their release Peter and John went and reported all they knew.   Now the apostle’s prayed – “Lord consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.  Stretch out you hand to heal and perform miracles and wonders in the mighty name of Jesus.”

And yes, today rulings are going out: “no school prayer, no saying in God we trust, no praying in the name of Jesus.”  Now of course, cursing the name of God and cursing with Jesus’ name is permitted.
Teaching, preaching and talking in the name of Jesus is our choice.  Now is the time to make sure your foundation is built upon Jesus.

Now is the time to be filled with the Holy Spirit and listen to His guidance daily.

Now is the time to take your position – knowing in Whom you will obey and whose Name you will use when speaking to others and in your prayers.

Jesus is the ONLY Name that will save, heal, redeem and restore.  Jesus is the ONLY Name that one day all people will bow their knees.  TGM

In the Name
of Jesus

by Marcia Greenwood

Jesus  gave us the authority to use His name.  That authority is delegated power.  When using this power, we can face the enemy without any fear and put him under our feet.   The exceeding greatness of God’s power comes to us who believe.  Jesus is seated far above all principalities and powers and we are seated with Him.  Our power and authority comes from above, not from this earth.

1 Corinthians 1:5 - In everything we are enriched by Him (Jesus), in all utterance and in all knowledge.  We have been made blameless.
Vs. 9 – God is faithful, by whom we were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Our faith is in God and the favor connected with the power of God, not in someone else or something else.  We must grow in intimacy with God; we must fellowship with Him and NOT become satisfied with just hearing about Him. We must hunger to fellowship on a deeper level with Him and learn to move as He moves, talk as talks and live as He lives.

So often, when reading stories in the Bible of people being healed by Jesus, He gave them a directive: “Go and wash,” “Go and show yourself unto the priests,” “Pick up your mat and walk.”  There is some action required before you receive.   This is called acting in faith.

There is power in the words of God: “Light Be,” “I have set the waters in their boundaries,” “the universe is set in place.”

John 16:23-24 - Jesus told the disciples: “Ask anything of the Father in My name and He will give it to you.”

Jesus – the Name above all names.  But when we use the name of Jesus, we must understand the power in the name and believe in the name.

Mark 1:27-28 - Jesus cast out demons with a WORD.  We have the Name, the source of the power within us – the same power that raised Jesus from the dead.

John 14:12 – He that believes on Me shall do the works!  The word “shall do” means to band together, perform, continue in, have your faith entrusted in, and be committed.

As we see the world getting darker and darker, we the church, the body of Christ, must shine the light of Jesus throughout the world.

The apostles Peter and John, understood the power in the name of Jesus, only after Jesus died.  The lame man at the gate was begging for some money as was his usual custom.   When Peter and John walked by he held out his hand and asked for help.  Peter told him, I don’t have any money on me now, but what I do have, I give to you.  “Rise up and walk in the name of Jesus.”

Some may say: “But yes, the apostles were SPECIAL because they were around Jesus and His ministry.  They had a close friendship with Him.”    But we do too.  Or at least we can if we desire it!

The Bible says that the Kingdom of God is advancing and the violent take it by force.  Violent means: forcer; to crowd oneself into and this is our means of livelihood. We live in this world, but are not part of it.  We have the rules and laws of the Kingdom of God to operate and live within!

Mark 16:17 says that any believer can lay hands on the sick and they will recover, and they shall cast out demons IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
The word BELIEVE is an ACTION word, not just some MENTAL exercise.

A sad fact: The world is hurting, dying and going to hell.  We need to be ready and available at all times to be a light and an administrator of the power of God – to change all things through the name of Jesus.

The Bible says that the same power (of the Holy Spirit) is in us that raised Jesus from the dead.  This is not the time to wimp out,  be afraid to be different, or be ashamed of the gospel. Who do you want to emulate?  The world or God?  This choice is yours! This is the time to rise up in the mighty power and authority that we have been given through God Himself,  through the name of Jesus.

John 20:21 – Jesus tells the disciples - As My Father hast has sent me into the world, I also sent  you. Calling on the name of Jesus to save us is only the beginning, we can now follow in Jesus’ footsteps and have an exciting life and ministry in Him.

John 14:23 – “If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him and make our abode with him.” 

Jesus is living in us – doing the work of the Father, and the power of the Holy Spirit is working through us. We are fully equipped to continue this work, in the Name of Jesus!  TGM

The Authority Of The Believer

Do you know the authority that has been vested in you?
Too few Christians grasp the authority that we've been given and even fewer are walking in that authority. 
Before Jesus returns there will be an entire army of believers who will rise up with the authority that is theirs.
