The Name

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12 KJV

There are names many that claim divine attributes. Allah, Moroni, Krishna, Bhudda, to mention a few. None have the sanction or endorsement of God Himself. It was only of Jesus that He gave His approval.

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.  Matthew 17:5 KJV

And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized of John in Jordan.  And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:  And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Mark 1:9‭-‬11 KJV

God set the way of salvation solely in the Person of His Son Jesus.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.   For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.   He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16‭-‬18 KJV


Thunder 


And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. Luke 4:4 KJV

The power of lightning is heralded by the sound of thunder, so the power of God’s Word is decreed by the voice of man.
If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.  1 Peter 4:11 KJV

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 

1 Corinthians 2:4 KJV

Keep proclaiming the Gospel!
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  Romans 1:16 KJV
Let the pulpits of this world thunder once again with Holy Ghost power!


Full of Faith


And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. Acts 6:8 KJV

How did Stephen get full of faith and power? He listened to the spoken Word and then acted upon it. 

There is only one way you get full of faith and power. You must continually hear the Word of God and do what it says.

The Bible says that faith is only acquired by hearing, and hearing, and hearing, the Word of God.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 KJV

Signs, wonders and miracles are the result of acting upon the Word you’ve heard.


Strengthened


He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Isaiah 40:29 KJV

The Christian is renewed  in the inner man day by day. Supernatural Zoe, God life, dwells in every believer. Say so!

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16 KJV

Let the weak say, I am strong! We are filled with supernatural strength in Christ Jesus.

Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.  Joel 3:10 KJV

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.  

Ephesians 6:10 KJV


Dishonor


My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Psalms 89:34 KJV

Do not contradict who the Lord is with your words. His Word is Truth.
When you believe and say words that are contradictory to who God has revealed Himself to be, you dishonor His name.

He is the God who heals us. To say you are not healed or “He will not heal me,” is to contradict His word and dishonor His name (Jehovah Rapha).

To say you will never succeed or prosper is to speak contrary to His word. zit is tantamount to calling God a liar and it dishonors His name (Jehovah Jireh & El Shaddai).

It is written, “You shall not take the Lord’s name in vain”. In other words, don’t say of Him who He has not revealed Himself to be. It dishonors His name.


Time to Speak


So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 KJV

How shall they hear without a preacher? If saving faith comes by hearing the Word of God, and it does, then it’s  your time to go and proclaim the good news of the gospel.
If faith to walk a victorious life filled with righteousness, peace, joy, health, prosperity, and power comes by hearing the Word of God, and it does, the don’t you think you might want to be in church more than once a week or whenever you feel like it?

Remember, Pastors are given to you to equip you with supernatural ability.

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.  Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.  And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  Ephesians 4:7‭-‬8‭, ‬11‭-‬14 KJV

Hear all the life giving Word you can.


One Way

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9 KJV

God only offers one way to approach Him. That way is to receive His only begotten Son Jesus. It was Christ Jesus who said it.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 KJV

You see, according to the Bible, the eternally immutable Word of God, there are no other paths to heaven. Buddha won’t get you there. Allah won’t get you there. Krishna, nor any other, will get you there. Only faith in Jesus the resurrected Christ will do.

If you haven’t already, receive Him now. Them please let me know.

But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:8‭-‬10 KJV
