“The Wonders Of His Name” A Sermon And Prayer Points By Pastor E A Adeboye. RCCG January 2013 Holy Ghost Service

 

Text: Philippians 2:9-11 “9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

What is in a name? Everything! Your future is bound up in your name, everything that happen to you in the future is your name. Consider Moses, the name means drawn out of the water. All through the life of Moses, he had various encounters with water. In exodus 7:19, he turned water to blood. In Exodus 14, He parted the red sea and In Numbers 20:11, he brought water out of rocks. The only reason he didn’t make it into the promise land was because of water (Num. 20:7-13).
There are so many wonders in the name of Jesus. In John 10:7, He said I am the door. In John 11:25, He says I am the resurrection and the life. In John 14:6, I am the way, the truth, and the life. In Isaiah 59:6, He was called wonderful, counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. In Revelation 1:8 says “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty”. He called Himself 8 names at a stretch and each is significant.
The name of Jesus guarantees deliverance (Mark 16:17). His name guarantees freedom ( John 8:36) freedom. His name guarantees promotion ( John 12;32). His name guarantees rest (Matt 11:28-30). His name guarantees satisfaction (John7:37-39). His name guarantees answers to prayer (John 14:14). His name guarantees victory!

In John 14:6 the bible says I am the way the truth and the life.
What does He mean by the way? Jesus is the way out of sickness (Mark 16:17-28, Acts 9:32-35). His name is the way out of death (Matthew 10:5-8, Acts 9:36-42 ). Any appointment with death concerning you is cancelled in Jesus name. Amen!
Jesus is the way out of embarrassment. In John 2:1-11, when they ran out of wine at the wedding, Jesus was there to bring them out of the embarrassment, he supplied more wine. Whatever the embarrassing situation in your life, you are coming out tonight in Jesus name. Amen
Jesus is also the way into the presence of God. John 14:6, He says nobody can go into God’s presence without him. Since Jesus is the way into God’s presence, He is also the way into the fullness of Joy (Hebrews 10:19). It is easier to get into the presence of God than the presence of many head of states, all you need to get into God’s presence is the name JESUS!

When everything seems too stagnant for you, call Jesus because He is the way forward. In Acts 3:1-8, the lame man had been stagnant for 40 years but when Peter called upon the name of Jesus his story changed, he began to leap and walk and progress began. In John 5:2-9, the man had been stagnant for many years but when Jesus came, progress began.

Jesus is the way where there is no way. Exodus 14:1-28. This year everywhere where they say there is no way, there will be a way for you. In Acts 12:5-9, Peter was imprisoned, the doors were locked, guards were outside, he was tied with chains so that there will be no way for escape but Jesus made a way where there is no way. In the wonderful name of Jesus, all those who said they have captured you will be disappointed in Jesus name.

Jesus is the way upward. In John 12:32, Jesus said “ And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me”. As you lift up Jesus,He will draw you up. In Luke 5:8-11, he promoted an ordinary fisherman called Peter and anywhere you go in the world today, you hear about the name Peter. Jesus is the way upward; he can pick up a beggar from the dunghill and keep lifting him up till he begins to dine with Kings. If man lifts you up, you will only go as far as his hands can lift you. When he can no longer lift you up, you begin to come back down but when God lifts you with His everlasting hands, you keep going higher.

Jesus is the only way. He is the only way to salvation.Acts 4:12 says “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved”. Matthew 1:21 says “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins”.

When you have prayed and you don’t know what to say anymore just keep on saying ‘Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!…’ Jesus answers our prayers all the time, the only reason it seems we do not get answers to our prayers is because we stop praying because we tend to rely on other alternatives. Jacob knew if he didn’t hold on to the angel, his brother will kill him so when the angel begged to go before dawn, Jacob refused. Don’t let go, hold on to God till he settles you and sets you free.

Are there witches and wizards in your family? Face them with JESUS!
Is there anyone in power who says he will destroy you? Face him with JESUS!
Is there any mountain that as refused to move all these years? This year, face it with JESUS!

What does the truth in the name of Jesus mean? John 8;32 says “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” . If you know Jesus freedom comes. In John 8:36 the bible says “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

This year, we will serve the Lord in Holiness and purity, we will not lie, we will not steal and we will prosper. Whether the devil likes it or not, we will prosper in Jesus name. Amen

What does the truth in the name of Jesus mean? Hebrews 9:22 says “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”
The truth is that the blood cleanses from all sins. It gives victory over satan
The truth is that salvation is free and it is by grace (Eph 2:5-9). But after you are saved and all your sins are forgiven it would be falsehood to say ‘I can now live like the son of the devil and still make heaven’ it is a lie. Romans 6:1-2 says “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”

Those who after giving their lives to God still toy with sin and say God is love are lying to themselves. 1John 4:8 says God is love but according to Hebrews 12:29, the bible makes it clear that God is a consuming fire! You don’t mess with Him, if you mess with Him, He will deal with you.

The truth is that God is love. It is also true that God is a consuming fire. If you think you can mess around with God, you are in for a surprise. He is a wonderful God, a God of grace but do not abuse the grace!

What does the life in that name Jesus mean? John 3:36 says “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” The name of Jesus gives life, believing in Jesus brings eternal life.

If you have not given your life to Jesus, do so tonight. If you have been joking and pretending to be born again, change your mind, come and give your life to Jesus Christ. If you are ready to work with Him in Holiness and purity, He will surprise you.

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

1 Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. 2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. 3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.) 4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.

5 Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. 6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. 7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. 8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. 9 And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. 10 When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him. 11 And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews. 12 And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying. 13 And as Peter knocked at the door of the gate, a damsel came to hearken, named Rhoda. 14 And when she knew Peter’s voice, she opened not the gate for gladness, but ran in, and told how Peter stood before the gate. 15 And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel. 16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished. 17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go show these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place. 18 Now as soon as it was day, there was no small stir among the soldiers, what was become of Peter. 19 And when Herod had sought for him, and found him not, he examined the keepers, and commanded that they should be put to death. And he went down from Judaea to Caesarea, and there abode.

20 And Herod was highly displeased with them of Tyre and Sidon: but they came with one accord to him, and, having made Blastus the king’s chamberlain their friend, desired peace; because their country was nourished by the king’s country. 21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. 22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. 23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost. 24 But the word of God grew and multiplied. 25 And Barnabas and Saul returned from Jerusalem, when they had fulfilled their ministry, and took with them John, whose surname was Mark.

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, 2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. 3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. 7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. 8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. 9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

10 And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. 11 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, 12 And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. 13 Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: 14 And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: 16 For I will show him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake. 17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. 18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized. 19 And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus. 20 And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he is the Son of God. 21 But all that heard him were amazed, and said; Is not this he that destroyed them which called on this name in Jerusalem, and came hither for that intent, that he might bring them bound unto the chief priests? 22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.

23 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him: 24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him. 25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket. 26 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple. 27 But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus. 28 And he was with them coming in and going out at Jerusalem. 29 And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him. 30 Which when the brethren knew, they brought him down to Caesarea, and sent him forth to Tarsus. 31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.

32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. 33 And there he found a certain man named AEneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy. 34 And Peter said unto him, AEneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately. 35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.

36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did. 37 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber. 38 And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them. 39 Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and showing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them. 40 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up. 41 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive. 42 And it was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord. 43 And it came to pass, that he tarried many days in Joppa with one Simon a tanner.

May GOD bless Nigeria, America and Israel and take care of us; May GOD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the LORD lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
