Dr Kenneth Hagin spoke often about the power of the Name of Jesus. Jesus himself told us anything we ask in His name we can have:
John 14:12-14 (AMP)
12 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you,
if anyone steadfastly believes in Me,
he will himself be able to do the things that I do;
and he will do even greater things than these,
because I go to the Father.
13 And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask
in My Name [as presenting all that I Am],
so that the Father may be glorified and
extolled in (through) the Son. . .
Exodus 3:14 (AMP)
And God said to Moses,
I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be
What I Will Be; and He said,
You shall say this to the Israelites:
I Am has sent me to you!
The mighty God of Israel, the Great I AM, King of Kings, all that power and authority is in Jesus. Anything we ask Jesus in His Name, knowing Jesus as God, pulls all that authority along with it and guarantees receiving an answer. Photo by Teri Clanahan (aka tallgal43)
Know the tremendous power working here! We ask only what we know God wants. To do this we must know God’s heart. That is why spending time with Him each day is a requirement in living a life of force, dominion, and victory.
Wow! See why praying in and recognizing the authority inherent in Jesus’ Name is so powerful? It doesn’t mean we just throw in the phrase “in Jesus name” at the end of a request. We must do so with understanding and intent, that is, we do as Jesus says: 14 [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am]. Jesus is God with all the authority and power of the God-head; we use His Name realizing we are calling upon all the divine sovereignty of heaven.
This is truly exciting! When we use the Name of Jesus as instructed by Him, we become Holy Spirit powered people; miracles are not beyond us. However, we must have full understanding, wisdom and protection from Holy Spirit. This takes prayer and meditation.
