Philippians 2:9 (KJV) Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
It was only in the New Testament that the long-anticipated answer of His name was revealed. Mary the virgin and her husband Joseph were directed by heavens to name the Son to be born in their house as “JESUS” (Yeshua-meaning salvation). Then Saul on the road to Damascus heard that blessed name of Jesus . God the Father bodily dwelt in Jesus Christ. St. Paul’s life was never the same again, he experienced the presence of God so closely and became the greatest apostle, writing the glorious spiritual experiences of his time.
The name that was sought for so many years was now unraveled to us. God revealed His Holy Name; Jesus the name that is exalted above every other name for us to experience, receive and live out His name!
Jesus: The Name
1) Represents His Person:
Luke 1:31-33 (KJV) And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Jesus the name of God revealed before His birth to Mary represents His person. He was the Son of the Highest God manifested in flesh unto whom the throne was given to rule. A Saviour appointed and sent in person to save humanity; the scripture says that He shall rule forever and that His kingdom shall have no end. So, let us welcome and accept the person of Jesus in our life today. When we say “JESUS” we experience glorious experiences as determined by heavens!
2) Represents His Character.
Matthew 1:21 (KJV) And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.
We might be surrounded with many names that bring anxiety, pain, fear and distress but blessed is the name of Jesus who being born two thousand years ago still brings in peace, love, joy and happiness in our lives. Jesus Christ was sent with an assignment that brought and still brings salvation from all our sins, healing from our sickness and a hope to an eternal life!
Acts 4:12 (KJV) Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Nobody can pull Him down for He is highly exalted by God; there is no other name given to men under heaven other than the name of Jesus by which we can be saved.
