The Name

There is power in names. Acts 4:12 says: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Philippians 3: 9-10 read: "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Yeshua every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth..." You can see that salvation is in the name; that everything that has a name must bow to The Name. Remember that we need to think Hebrew even if we are reading Greek.

The Hebrew word for "name" is shem. It is composed of two Hebrew letters: sheen which means teeth or destroy and mem which means water. Read together, the word picture is to destroy chaos. If you have chaos is your health, finances, relationships, or any other aspect of your life, the Name will destroy it. Now you can see why such emphasis was placed on teaching in the name of Yeshua. Everything that has a name must bow to the name of Yeshua. Now you can understand why we are told in Colossians 3:17: "And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Master Yeshua, giving thanks to Elohim the Father by him." There is power in His name and we should destroy chaos everywhere we find it.

We as followers of the Way have been granted authority to use the Name. The Name that will destroy chaos. People need this truth. Take the Name with you today.
