7/08/16 No Other Name
“Jesus! The only Name that is higher than every other name. Any attempt to say that Name in some circles will soon cause great harm to come to you. Soon those, who honor the high esteem that the Name of Jesus carries in the heavenlies, will be cursed, hated, and killed because of its separating power. Although the Name is synonymous with limitless love, it will bring forth the deepest hatred of those who will not bow to it. No other name can separate absolute truth from false religion. By the Name of the Most High Jesus, nations will be brought low, children will be lifted up, and false kingdoms will be destroyed.
"Jesus! The only Name that is higher than every other name. Identifying and embracing it with all your heart will bring you untold wisdom and eternal prosperity. Those who throw it in the dirt will experience darkness of the most horrible kind.
"Jesus! The only Name that is higher than every other name. The one Name that will soon bring a conclusion to My eternal plans. It is your plumb line for all eternity. It is the bench mark for your very life.
"Jesus! The only Name that is higher than every other name. Whether whispered in quiet submission or shouted at the top of your voice, it will move all heaven and earth on your behalf because of its Owner and what He has done. Although He is the One honored for all eternity, He has given you His Name for your sole expression of life. Carry it properly. Cherish it with all your heart. You will soon be amazed at its wondrous power. Although the Name of Jesus will be the catalyst for your persecution, it will be your only place of safety.
"Jesus!! The only Name that is higher than every other name.”
Hebrews 1:1-3a AMP
1) IN MANY separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the Truth] and in different ways God spoke of old to [our] forefathers in and by the prophets,
2) [But] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [the person of a] Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order].
3a) He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power…
The bottom line for everything that is unfolding before us is the Name of Jesus and what it stands for. This could mean that those of us who are calling ourselves by His Name may be put to a life and death test in the future. If we honor our commitment to our Lord, we may very well have the honor of living, and possibly dying, in the same way as His first followers did. If we deny Him in any way, the consequences of our foolishness are too horrible to dwell upon.
For a long time, the Lord has been calling those who are His to draw close to Him so that we will be able to stand properly in these coming times. This eternally serious choice is ours to make at this very moment. I am convinced that soon we will have opportunity to deliver to the world the life that we have received from being in His presence, or we will stand open-mouthed and empty-handed with the world, as we attempt to comprehend what has happened in our midst.
