let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone. ”NOR IS THERE SALVATION IN ANY OTHER FOR THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN GIVEN AMONG MEN BY WHICH WE MUST BE SAVED” Acts 4:10-12


Acts 4:12 is telling me that, no name can give me Salvation but Jesus Christ, or save my soul from the condemnation, tumblr_mlrwjyBzgw1rgtq41o1_500or penalty of sin except Jesus Christ, and Him Crucified. Isn’t it amazing that Jesus is the only name by which we can be save.

But it is also the only one that we seem to always use in vain, or swear by, it is  the only name that produces so much hate in the world we live in, or love in one’s Heart who has allowed His transforming power to take effect in there lives.

And yet Jesus name is the only one that can give us Eternal life if we so desire. My friends you will never here other gods name used in such utter contempt “Oh My Allah.” or “What in Buddha’s name is going on?” or “Krishna Dam” it’s amazing no other name do we annihilate,

or obliterate like the one and only name that can give us SALVATION. Oh what POWER, what HOPE, what GRACE, what LOVE, what FAITH behind A name. But my friends not just any name, the best way I can define it in one word or less is to just say TRANSFORMATION.

Because in just that name I have gone from someone on the road to self destruction to someone who eats, and breathes the awesome power of His name. And I am sure reformed alcoholics, or the cleansed prostitutes, or the reformed junkie, or the thief on the cross,

Or the murderer on death row who after A life of crime now recognizes the saving power of that name can say the same 7771about the transforming power of the name of Jesus Christ, and what it means to them, as they stand in total awe before their Savior And say with all sincerity;

“My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name. When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace; in every high and stormy gale, my anchor holds within the veil.”

Paul tells us also in Romans 10:13 for “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. The passion one must have to be “sinking deep in sin” and say Lord save me with faith and conviction and Eternal life is theirs.

“For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.” Psalms 111:9 Oh the power in the name of Jesus Christ. and it is that power that sets the standard that we all must live by. Because it is that standard in that name that allowed no sin to enter his life.

ashelterAnd at the same time stayed focused on His death, on A cross, for our sins so that we all may be eligible to sit before him in His pure and Holy kingdom. So today my friends we should all be able to say without A doubt, if we are A Child of God, that perfection is the nature of the name by which we receive salvation,

and everything else just falls short of  the honor, and glory of the name Jesus Christ. And that is why each day we must die to self so that we may one day be able to say “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.

The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Gal 2:20 and then one day as John tells us in 1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.


“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:3-5 And as we stand among the redeemed one day soon, while witnessing our Saviors return we will have no doubt who is coming to take us Home because “On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: king of kings and lord of lords.” Rev. 19:16



So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
