How to Make The Name of Jesus Work for You

Acts 3: 4 –9, 16 –And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, look on us. And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God. And all the people saw him walking and praising God. “And His name (Jesus Christ), through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and have knowledge of: yes, the faith which is through Him has made him well, before you all.

The name of Jesus is the greatest of all names but for it to produce for you, you have to learn how to use it effectively. You must be aware that the name of Jesus works for people within certain parameters and will not be effective outside of such conditions.

According to the above scripture, for the name of Jesus to produce for you, you will have to have faith in the name. You must believe in what the name stands for i.e. total salvation for the total man. It means salvation and preservation on all fronts; nothing missing and nothing broken.

Furthermore, if you are not born gain, you have not set yourself up for the flow of God’s power because that is the first essential step into triumphant life. If you are born again I want you to know that at salvation the God kind of faith was imparted into your human spirit and it was that faith that transformed you into a new creature. The faith is still alive and well within your human spirit but you need to build it up by feeding on God’s word daily.

For the name of Jesus to produce when you call him, you have to realise that you have the God kind of faith resident in your human spirit as a child of God. You therefore have to feed your spirit with the word of God so that you can grow effectively.

For the name of Jesus to produce for you, you have to put your faith in the name. The combination of the two becomes a spiritual explosion and sends the devil on the run. It is also important for you to know that for the name to come into action for you, you have to call it with authority and absolute confidence. You cannot call the name timidly because the name is full of power. You have to call the name like Peter and John in Acts 3 and make a command like an army general and expect to see results. In many cases, I have seen instantaneous results while using the name of Jesus and in some cases it took a period of time but the bottom line is “I always end up triumphant”.
