Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
One of the first lessons I learned when baptised in The Holy Spirit was that the names of people in Scripture describes the nature of that person. ‘The name is the nature’. When studying the rebuilding of the gates of Jerusalem to get an idea of the spiritual picture being portrayed, I discovered that translating the names into English gave a key to understanding.
Jesus tells us that “If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” Thus, whatever we ask of Him while ‘in the Spirit’ — in His Holy Spirit — we have a direct line to His nature abiding in us, because we are abiding in Him. This passage in John 14 is a wonderful expression of Jesus’ nature, and an amazing and glorious promise to those who believe in Him. You will notice that many prayers that we read, conclude with “in Jesus name”, stating that the prayer is claiming this promise that Jesus made to His people.
The name of Jesus Christ reveals His nature as ‘God is salvation, the anointed one’, or we might say that He is chosen and consecrated by God to be salvation, and salvation encompasses deliverance, welfare, prosperity, healing and victory among its many implications. “Most assuredly.”
‘MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS’
LUKE 2:21 NKJV
And when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called JESUS, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb.
“My Prayer For You” — Alisa Turner
A HOLY COMMAND: Oswald Chambers on Love
MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS…
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
