There is POWER in the name of Jesus

One song that is making great waves in Christendom is “Break every chain” by Tasha Cobbs. The chorus goes:

 There is power in the name of Jesus/ 
 There is power in the name of Jesus/ 
 There is power in the name of Jesus/ 
 To break every chain/
 Break every chain /
 Break every chain/

A lot of people sing this song but don’t experience the full impact of this song. This is because although they know of the name of Jesus and claim to believe in Jesus, they don’t believe or understand the power behind the name of Jesus. The name of Jesus is very powerful. When this name is mentioned; demons shudder and chaos is caused in their sphere of operation. Literally there is a shift in the atmosphere when someone who believes in Jesus and in the name of Jesus uses it! 

There is POWER in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. It matters which Jesus you use because you have to believe in that name for it to work for you. There are many people called Jesus around the world but calling on the name of any of these Jesus will not bring about any change in your situation or cause any demons to flee. In fact if you are not careful they might pounce on you for taunting them because they are really terrified of the name of JESUS; the Son of the Living God. You wonder why they are afraid? The Bible tells us that: “He stripped all the spiritual tyrants in the universe of their sham authority at the Cross and marched them naked through the streets” [Colossians 2:15, the MSG]. 

Jesus stripped the devil of the authority he had over mankind and also made a public spectacle of Him; He took back the rightful authority that man had given the the devil in the garden of Eden. When Jesus took this authority, He gave it back to mankind when He said “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” [Matthew 28-18-19, NLT]. Jesus has given us authority to break every chain that mankind is facing by bringing them into his Kingdom. The preaching of the gospel must be evidenced with the POWER in the name of Jesus and that is why we need to believe in it and use it. 

Jesus said that those who believe in Him and become born again will not be ordinary people but will be people who do signs and wonders, especially when they do it in His name and use his name. He said “And these attesting signs will accompany those who believe: in My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages; They will pick up serpents; and [even] if they drink anything deadly, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will get well” [Mark 16:17-18, AMP].

There are many who are still in chains today despite the fact that Jesus won the battle for them many many years ago. Stripped of his authority, the devil now resorts to tricks and schemes to keep people blinded of their real authority even when they become born again. But Oh, the name of Jesus breaks every chain, breaks every chain. The Bible tells us that “That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, And every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” [Philippians 2:10, AMP]. 

Now, the Bible says EVERY knee must bow; it didn’t say some knees but every knee. I don’t care what situation you are dealing with whether physical, mental, financial, social or spiritual, but at the mention of the name of Jesus that knee must bow and succumb to the authority of Jesus. If that situation does not have a name, give it a name and subject it to the name of Jesus. If it is cancer, divorce, government shut down, generational curses, inability to marry, constant financial lose, lack of jobs etc etc, I don’t care what it is, use that name JESUS!

But remember, there are many we need to set free from the prison camps of the enemy and the keys we need to loosen the gates and chains is in the name of JESUS! Let’s swing wide those gates by using the name of Jesus over our friends, families, loved ones, society and nations. There is great power in it!
