That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth.(Phil. 2:10)
The Name of Jesus belongs to us as believers. We have a right to use the Name of Jesus. The right to use Jesus’ Name is a blessing given to the Church, to every child of God.
We have a fourfold right to use the Name:
First, we’re born into the family of God, and the Name belongs to the family.
Second, we’re baptized into the Name. And being baptized into the Name, we’re baptized into Christ Himself.
Third, the Name was conferred upon us by Jesus. He gave us the power of authority.
And fourth, we’re commissioned as ambassadors to go and herald the Name of Jesus among the nations. We’re representatives of Christ.
Now I can’t find in the Bible where it says we need to have any special faith to use the Name of Jesus, because the Name already belongs to us. You don’t need any special faith to get in your car and use it or drive it.
You wouldn’t think about saying, “Brother Hagin, I want you to pray for me that I’ll have enough faith to put the key in the ignition of my car and drive it home.” No, you already know that you have the key in your pocket, and you know what to do with it. So you act in faith unconsciously.
You see, it takes knowing what is yours. When you come to know that the Name of Jesus is yours and that you have a right to use that Name, you’ll begin to use it as unconsciously as you use the key to start your car and drive it.
Confession: I am a child of God, and the Name of Jesus belongs to me. I use the Name of Jesus and the authority He has given me in that Name.
