There’s POWER in The Name of JESUS!
Recently, I watched a YouTube video (link below) on the POWER of The Name of JESUS. I must say this young man Stephen’s testimony brought me back to an experience I had about 10 years ago. It only happened just the one time and I believe that is because I was eventually able to THINK The Name JESUS.
I have talked with people about Worship and The Arts and some of the symbolic tools and instruments we use to convey the message of the Kingdom of God. (Pictured on right: my personal – Matteh) There are mixed feelings about the use of these tools and instruments in the Church. Worship Arts is a tangible, spiritual experience for all who enter in through the Spirit. Interestingly people say to me things like; “I only read the Bible and nothing else” or “Who needs all this pomp and fluff in the Church!” Let’s be clear; we all experience God in our own unique way, right? Maybe instead of just saying “NO” to something new, try asking the Holy Spirit to give you understanding.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. John 14:26
As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 1 John 2:27
Worship Arts is something many have to grow into and come to a “new” understanding of what they are seeing through this visual ministry. I have heard testimonials and have seen the tears of many whom Jesus set free through the tangible experiences of the Spirit through Worship and The Arts. Beloved…It’s a NEW time.
“It was an early morning weekday maybe around 5:30am. My hubby was in the kitchen drinking his usual 2 cups of coffee before leaving for work. I distinctly remember hearing him in the kitchen. In the video the young man Stephen told his story and similarly like him; I experienced no smell, no sound and saw nothing in the darkness of my bedroom. But…the dark benevolent presence in the room was undeniable. I laid there very still and thought that maybe it would leave it I played dead? I too was laying on my stomach when suddenly I felt the very powerful demonic presence press my entire body strongly into the mattress. Great fear came over me and I could not understand why this was happening. The whole experience was probably about a minute or so but seemed like an eternity. My mind was very active the entire time and I remember the thought coming that if I can just say The Name JESUS it will flee. The strange thing was I was completely paralyzed and unable to move even my lips or make a sound. I tried to make a sound…nothing, I wanted to yell out to my husband but couldn’t. I knew in my spirit that if you can just say The Name JESUS it is all powerful and demons must flee as the scriptures say. Something was blocking me from speaking The Name. The pressure never let until ..I was able to THINK The Name JESUS and instantly the demon lifted! Yes, with all my strength within I said JESUS with my mind.” ~Lora
I have never really understood why this tangible spiritual experience happened in this way to me. What I have learned through this experience and have no doubt is that there is POWER in The Name, The Name above all names…JESUS. I pray this helps someone to stay strong in the LORD and the Power of His Might. Beloved, our thoughts are powerful, let’s redirect our thinking to kingdom things. We are in the world but not of it, amen?
They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. John 17:16
Some scriptures to meditate on:
- James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
- John 14:14 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
- Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
