(The Authority And Dominion Of The Name Of Jesus)

TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 1:19-21 NASB
“…What is the boundless greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might, which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.”

In Ephesians 1:17-18, the Holy Spirit, through the Apostle Paul, prayed a beautiful prayer for God’s people.

Reading the prayer, we see how He elucidates on the person of Jesus—who He really is and the authority, power, and dominion vested in His Name.

Notice that in verses 20, God Almighty raised Jesus from the dead and set Him at His own right hand.

Often times, when some Christians read of this “right hand of God,” they think it refers to God’s right-hand side but that’s not the case.

“Right hand” isn’t merely a description of directional or geographical location; it implies the seat of power. When you refer to someone as your right-hand man, what you mean is that he or she represents you; he has your authority to act on your behalf.

Today, Jesus is in God’s seat of power! Where exactly is that, you might ask? The Bible says He’s “…in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come” (Ephesians 1:20-21 NIV). That’s where Jesus is—His position of authority.

This also means that the Name of Jesus Christ is above every power, every rulership, every government, and every authority.

The Wuest Translation gives us a more excellent rendering of Ephesians 1:21. It tells us that Jesus is “over and above every government and authority and power and lordship and every name that is constantly being named, not only in this age but also in the one about to come.” No wonder the Apostles used the Name of Jesus and ruled the world of their time.

This is what Christians around the world must rediscover today: the power of the Name of Jesus. Learn to use that Name in all circumstances.

The Name of Jesus is the Name above all names, and I use that Name as an instrument today. His Name is greater than cancer; it replaces maimed limbs, opens blind eyes, unstops deaf ears, and raises the dead. In the Name of Jesus, I declare that I’m more than a conqueror, a champion forever, eternally fruitful and productive. Blessed be God!
