What a joy it is to belong to the Church of God!
When we belong to the Church, we belong to the greatest and most powerful body in the world; there is nothing like the Church anywhere. The Church has such great power that even the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. That is why the devil cannot harm the people of the Church when they know the name of Jesus Christ and use that name, believing in it. Can you see why our prayers must be answered when we believe that Christ is in us? We can receive anything from God that He has promised in the Word if we only know and believe it. Everything that has been revealed in the Word we can thank God for, and, if we believe, it will come to pass.
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17
“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” Ephesians 5:20
Do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks always.
“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
What a name!
“And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” 1 Corinthians 6:11
You have been washed and sanctified, and you have been justified in His name; but you must receive it before you can manifest it. WOW! Isn’t that awesome! We have power in His Name. We have the power of attorney that when we use the name of Jesus Christ, powerful, positive things must happen. No other body of people has this kind of witness!
“Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” James 5:14,15
We all want to belong to something bigger than we are. What about belonging to the Family of God because of His son Jesus Christ? How much bigger can you get?
But, there’s one problem.
Less than 2% of all Christians ever truly depend on and rise to the greatness of just manifesting the power of their own birthright. Less than 2%! As a result, we have sick among us. There is strife and discord among the Church of God and nobody seems to know how to lead anymore.
We have the power to move the very gates of hell! But do we use it for it’s purpose? Do we love one another with it? Do we minister and pray for each other when we see a family member get hit?
“And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.” 1 John 3:23
The Church, in which you belong, has the power of attorney, the right to use the name of Jesus Christ. Now let’s believe together to bring positive results into our lives through this powerful name. All you have to do is use it. It wasn’t earned, God gave it by grace. Nothing you DO will take it away. You have it! I guarantee that today, living in this world you will find some reason to manifest it. All you have to do is realize you’re own right and power as a born-again member of the Church of God.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
You must claim that life yourself. You have the right to activate the powerful name of Jesus Christ and live the more than abundant life!
God bless you today!
