That I May Know Him

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

The Name of Jesus Christ

Many people, including Christians, do not realize the power behind the name of Jesus. The devil, however, that subtil beast, is aware of such power and hates the precious name of Jesus. He wants to desensitize the world to His name and to His words.

The only name which is so used in vain is that which of Jesus Christ. And, if you think the English language is the only one which uses the name of Christ in vain, think again. The French language exceeds the English language in that matter. And why does the world use the name of God to “damn” things? It’s because there is POWER to His name. When a person is frustrated and feels loss of control, it’s almost all too natural to lash out at the person that is in control, and that is all powerful – Jesus Christ.

Believe me if Buddha had power, they'd use his name in vain. The same can be said of Muhammad and of Krishna. But nobody's yelling their names because buddha's dead, muhammad's dead and krishna is dead. Only Jesus Christ is alive and in control, and the devil is doing his best to desensitize the world to His name.

Our duty as believers is to SENTITIZE the world to the name of Jesus Christ. His name is so powerful that it’s only one that can save souls from the flaming fires of hell.

~Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

After all, as it is written in Philippians 2:10-11 it’s at the name of Jesus that "every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

So might as well sensitize the entire world to the power behind the name Jesus Christ as of now, before it’s too late for millions of them.

What a lovely name, the name of Jesus
Reaching higher far, than the brightest star
Sweeter than the songs they sing in heaven
Let the world proclaim, what a lovely name.

    That was a very nice post! What you said is absolutely true.
    Yet the world is forgetting the powerful name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Nowadays, instead of saying "God bless you", many say "Buddha bless," so as to not offend anyone! (they are so foolish!)
    But thanks for the post cuz :)

    I don't think the Psalmist could have imagined what his words meant when he said, "THe heavans and earth declare Thy name, O Lord." Take a look at this: http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/0704/carina_hst_big.jpg
