JESUS, THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES
By Dr. K.C.NAINAN, ATLANTA, GEORGIA, U.S.A

In the New Testament there are two names given by an angel from heaven before the babies were born. They are John for the Baptist and Jesus for Christ. John was the forerunner of Christ Jesus and both were relatives. The Name Jesus was the mightiest and holy that has changed the world and the entire civilization of mankind forever. There is no name that is comparable to this Name of Jesus. According to Apostle Peter who was filled with Holy Spirit spoke to the Jewish council and leaders that “Salvation is be found through Jesus alone; in all the world there is no one else whom God has given who can save us.”(Acts. 4:12) When the Philippian jailor asked Paul and Silas “What must I do to be saved? They answered, believe in the Lord Jesus, you and your family will be saved.” (Acts 16: 29-30.)

Before the Name ‘Jesus’ was given to the incarnated Son of God, His name was the Word who was with God the Father and he was the same as God. Through this Word of God all things were created and everything exist through Him and for Him! (John 1:1-3, Romans 11:36) According to bible the entire universe, visible and invisible, is filled by the presence of Jesus and He is going to be supreme Judge before whom every man and woman will kneel down. He is the only mediator and judge of all the people dead and alive.

The Name of Jesus is the only name worthy to be worshipped, praised and thanked. The demons will tremble at the Name of Jesus and the angels constantly worship and praise Him. This Name is the only holy Name our heavenly Father has given us to love, to honor, to praise, and to adore constantly in our lives. In the name of Jesus repentance is proclaimed, sins are forgiven, sick are healed, death is conquered, dead are raised, wonders and miracles are performed by the followers of Jesus. In His name wars are fought and peace treaties are signed. Weak are strengthened and mighty are humbled. Ages of time are divided in to A.D. and B.C. by his birth. The Name of Jesus has nurtured and nourished all fields of art, music and science.

From Adam to Christ a tribe and a nation were prepared for the arrival of the Savior of mankind. That is Jesus the Christ. The quest of all religions is fulfilled in Jesus. The Name of Jesus has brought peace and joy to many whereas it brings troubles and trials to others. Those who seek and search Him will find eternal love and salvation of their souls. Since His birth many were martyred and many go on serving even to the point of death.

What a Name we have? It is the Name that inspires constantly within us by His own Holy Spirit. This is the only Name God the Father wants us to call upon and trust completely. We receive His Spirit only through the name of Jesus. Life abundant in this world as well as in the Kingdom of God is centered on the Name of Jesus. Let us rejoice always in the Name that is above all the names. Amen.
