The name Yehoshua which is Jesus’s correct Hebrew name was not uncommon in Israel, it means Salvation. However there was something special about this particular Yeshua. This specific Yehoshua has been exalted above any other Yehoshua before or after him:
Php 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Php 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
Php 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Php 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
Php 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
Php 2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
So the power in the name of Yehoshua is based around the man and not the name, because the name was not unique but the man was. This is why whether you choose to use the name Yehoshua or the English equivalent Jesus, the power is still the same, because it comes from the man behind the name!
The power behind the name is the sacrifice that was made for the whole of man kind. This is why the enemy is trying blot the name of Jesus out of society. He does not mind if a person says God, BUT do not mention the Jesus!
You see, the strategy of the enemy is; you first start with the name and remove it from people’s lips, then you begin to destroy everything the name stands for. This is why, ever since they have taken prayer out of schools and have tried to make Jesus a taboo name, we have seen a steady moral decline in the children of that generation, which will continue to filter through to generations to come.
However God always has his plan and his people in place because none of this is taking him by surprise:
Isa 59:18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.
Isa 59:19 So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Isa 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
That standard is everyone who is obedient to the name and everything the name stands for.
The reason why demons tremble and the devil has to flee when you mention the name of Jesus is because of the man behind the name.
There is power in the name of Jesus to heal the sick, to comfort people going though challenges, to provide for people who are lacking, to give hope to people who have lost hope for the future and to turn people to the truth who have been living a lie their whole lives.
However to remain faithful to Jesus means you are on the radar for an attack of the enemy and this is why it is so important for believers to have the word inside of them, so that when the attack does come, you can do what Jesus did and that is speak the word into that situation.
God has given us spiritual weapons, so we need to learn how to use them. We do not just have to lay there and be a door mat for the enemy to wipe his feet on whenever he feels like it, but we need to stand in the authority of that name and say, “Get behind me satan!”
So do you understand the power that you have in the name of Jesus?
Parallel Business Principals
There is power in conviction, when a person is convicted about something, they will do what is takes to get what they are looking for.
So in this business, if you are not convicted in your own heart that you will be successful, then you won’t be, because success will come at a price and the road to success is not an easy one.
Successful people just the people that continued on the journey when others quit. The attitude of the successful is distantly different from the attitude of everyone else. No one is any better than anyone else, it is just that some people will stick with it while others won’t.
