Topic: Call On The Name Of Jesus [Friday October 27, 2017]
“The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” (Proverbs 18:10 KJV)
In times of trouble God’s people must learn to run into the strong tower. You run into the strong tower by remembering the name of the Lord. Romans 10:13 (KJV) says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Merely calling the name “Jesus” when you are overwhelmed will save you. David said that ‘when my heart is overwhelmed I will run to the rock that is higher than I.’ When the enemy begins to roar and rage, there is a higher rock you should run to.
You will be surprised how many people have been delivered from challenges, difficulties, and pressures of life by simply calling the name of Jesus. People have been healed delivered and set free because the Bible says that he has been given a name above all the names of sickness or disease. I have heard of cases of people who were diagnosed with medically impossible cases and they kept on calling the name of Jesus countless times, and because the scripture says that whosoever shall call on the name of Jesus shall be saved, by the time the doctors came back they were surprised to discover that the conditions have changed.
God said I will use the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. When you don’t know what to do, call the name of Jesus. When your heart is overwhelmed, call the name of Jesus. The devil does not want you to mention that name. Remember in the book of Acts when the Apostles were preaching, the Pharisees and Sadducees said to them you can preach but don’t mention that name. If that name is taken out of our message we don’t have any more power because it is only at the name of Jesus that every knee bows. If there is ever a time that we need to shout that name, more than ever, before it is now.
