Prayer in the Family Name Pt. 2

Pastor Samuel Tyler

In the family name there is great opportunity for life. After the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, He stated that all authority and power was invested in His name. Matthew 28:18 Before His passion He stated, John 16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. The resurrection of Jesus endowed His name with a power that all men could live in that would cause a spiritual revolution in the world. The new birth has placed in the hands of every believer in Jesus the keys to unlock every good thing that the blood of Jesus has purchased. Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” (Acts 3:6 NKJV). All that the kingdom of heaven has to offer is in the salvation placed in that name. In His death all things that would be considered adversarial to our lives were defeated. 1 Corinthians 2:6 The Holy Spirit raised Jesus from death in the lowest part of Hades to show us His victory over death. Acts 2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. In that place of despair and suffering in our behalf Jesus received the life of God back into His spirit and then defeat satan and all his cohorts. Jesus paraded them in front of all spirits in a procession of triumph thoroughly pleasing our Father as He spoke from heaven for all to hear. Hebrews 1:5-6 The book of Acts depicts an intense warfare against the use of the name of Jesus after His resurrection. Peter announced that there was not salvation in any other name under heaven but the name of Jesus. Acts 4:12 The word of God describes salvation as wholeness and deliverance from all that is evil. Sin, sickness, poverty, and ignorance are just a few of the many evils of the adversary. Faith in the name of Jesus is the key that unlocks the door to deliverance. Acts 3:16 The early believers in Christ Jesus had a deep understanding of the authority in the name of Jesus. In the book of Acts the underlying thought is the warfare over the use of the name of Jesus. Acts 4:29-31 At the moment of our new birth into the body of Christ, we were born into the name of Jesus. Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age, AMEN (Matthew 28:19,20 AMP). The call to every believer in the Body of Christ is to enter into this warfare over the supremacy of the name. Jesus stated that His never changing presence would be with us through His name. We are therefore authorized to bear the name of Jesus to world proclaiming freedom and redemption. The Lord showed us a pattern of living in Acts 1:1. In 2012, I had a vision of the Lord. He was dressed in His royal apparel riding on a white horse. He was crowned King of kings and Lord of Lords. In His hand was a two edge sword that He was using in battle to defeat the enemies of our soul. The sword of the Spirit in His hand was the victorious Word of God. Following His example, with faith in His name began to do the works and teachings of the Lord proclaiming the day of salvation.
