DAY 21 MONDAY: DECEMBER 2020

USING THE AUTHORITY IN JESUS CHRIST’S NAME!

And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Colossians 3:17).

Every Christian should learn to be conversant with the Name of Jesus Christ and use it as his weapon of authority in life. There is great power in the Name of Jesus Christ in life. The Bible says in the opening text that whatever you do in word or deed; do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed expects him to always use the authority in the Name of Jesus Christ in life. The authority in the Name of Jesus Christ is incomparable to any power one can think of in life. Hence, a Christian is hereby admonished to absolutely use the Name of Jesus Christ as weapon against his challenges and obstacles in life forever.

The Name of Jesus Christ carries the authority to unlock every door of opportunity in heaven, earth and even in the abyss in life. That is why Jesus Christ said in John 16:23 thus, “And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name He will give you.” Therefore, whatever a Christian asks the Father in the Name of Jesus Christ is expressly granted by God because of the authority in the Name of His begotten Son, Jesus Christ in life. The Name of Jesus Christ is the weapon of authority to always receive from the Father in life. The authority in the Name of Jesus Christ is absolutely the authority that is supreme and above all authorities in heaven, earth and hades in life forever.

The Name of Jesus Christ has the power of attorney to place an order and make a demand in life. The Name is far above every other name and authority because of God’s endorsement upon Jesus Christ Name in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Philippians 2:10, “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.” In fact, the authority in the Name of Jesus Christ is of course supreme and above every other name and authority in heaven, earth and abyss in life. Therefore, the authority in the Name of Jesus Christ is absolutely the authority of God the Father upon the church to reign over life forever.

Daily Tip: The Name of Jesus Christ is highly supreme and far above every other name and authority; therefore, a Christian should learn to use the Name as his weapon of authority in heaven, earth and abyss in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full (John 16:24).
