Bible DISCOVERY 14: The POWER of the NAME of JESUS

 

Have we any idea of the POWER of the NAME of JESUS?

Scripture has all the answers.

Philippians 2:9-11

King James Version

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, 

and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, 

of things in heaven, 

and things in earth, 

and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess 

that Jesus Christ is Lord, 

to the glory of God the Father.


Isaiah 9:6

King James Version

6 For unto us a child is born, 

unto us a son is given: 

and the government shall be upon his shoulder: 

and his name shall be called Wonderful,

Counsellor, 

The mighty God, 

The everlasting Father, 

The Prince of Peace.


Jeremiah 10:6

King James Version

6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, 

O Lord; 

thou art great, 

and thy name is great in might.


Mark 16:17

King James Version

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; 

In my name shall they cast out devils; 

they shall speak with new tongues;


Luke 10:17

King James Version

17 And the seventy returned again with joy, 

saying, 

Lord, 

even the devils are subject unto us 

through thy name.


John 14:13

King James Version

13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, 

that will I do, 

that the Father may be glorified in the Son.


John 16:26

King James Version

26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: 

and I say not unto you, 

that I will pray the Father for you:


Acts 2:38

King James Version

38 Then Peter said unto them, 

Repent, 

and be baptized every one of you 

in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, 

and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.


Acts 4:12

King James Version

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: 

for there is none other name under heaven 

given among men, 

whereby we must be saved.


Acts 4:30

King James Version

30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; 

and that signs and wonders may be done 

by the name of thy holy child Jesus.


Romans 10:13

King James Version

13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord 

shall be saved.


1 Corinthians 6:11

King James Version

11 And such were some of you: 

but ye are washed, 

but ye are sanctified, 

but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, 

and by the Spirit of our God.

Bible DISCOVERY 13: The LOST Years of JESUS

 

Psalm 69:1-4

King James Version

69 Save me, 

O God; 

for the waters are come in unto my soul.

2 I sink in deep mire, 

where there is no standing: 

I am come into deep waters, 

where the floods overflow me.

3 I am weary of my crying: 

my throat is dried: 

mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

4 They that hate me without a cause 

are more than the hairs of mine head: 

they that would destroy me, 

being mine enemies wrongfully, 

are mighty: 

then I restored that which I took not away.


Do you know how the LORD JESUS' life was, from the time He astonished the doctors at the temple when He was but 12 years old, up until His ministry at age 30?

That's 18 years we are not aware of.

How did the LORD fare?

How was His life?

How was His preparation?

Thanks to the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD, He led me today to those lost years, through the second Christmas story video of Dr. Chuck Missler in the previous post, who spoke of Psalm 69 as those lost years.

Dr. Missler feels those missing years were sad for the LORD.

He must have been ostracized, for His "illegitimacy".

Of course, the seemingly most illegitimate birth -- born of virgin birth -- is the MOST LEGITIMATE birth of all.

The LORD took on the sins of the world, and that must have been quite a childhood, and adulthood.

Here are more telling verses:

Psalm 69:7-9

King James Version

7 Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; 

shame hath covered my face.

8 I am become a stranger unto my brethren, 

and an alien unto my mother's children.

9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; 

and the reproaches of them that reproached thee 

are fallen upon me.


Psalm 69:11-12

King James Version

11 I made sackcloth also my garment; 

and I became a proverb to them.

12 They that sit in the gate speak against me; 

and I was the song of the drunkards.


Psalm 69:17-20

King James Version

17 And hide not thy face from thy servant; 

for I am in trouble: 

hear me speedily.

18 Draw nigh unto my soul, 

and redeem it: 

deliver me because of mine enemies.

19 Thou hast known my reproach, 

and my shame, 

and my dishonour: 

mine adversaries are all before thee.

20 Reproach hath broken my heart; 

and I am full of heaviness: 

and I looked for some to take pity, 

but there was none; 

and for comforters, 

but I found none.


And the most telling verse of all, authenticating that this is the LORD JESUS speaking:

Psalm 69:21

King James Version

21 They gave me also gall for my meat; 

and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.


The complete Psalm 69.

Bible DISCOVERY 12: Tracing the Day JESUS was BORN

 

Matthew 1:20-21

King James Version

20 But while he thought on these things, 

behold, 

the angel of the Lord appeared unto him 

in a dream, 

saying, 

Joseph, 

thou son of David, 

fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: 

for that which is conceived in her 

is of the Holy Ghost.

21 And she shall bring forth a son, 

and thou shalt call his name Jesus: 

for he shall save his people from their sins.


When was the LORD JESUS really born?

Was it really on December 25, as most traditions say?

Here are a couple of vital videos from the investigative minister, Dr. Chuck Missler, delivered in his own, inimitable way.

It will forever change the way you used to think about when Jesus was born, and the people, and circumstances surrounding such a DIVINE birth.

and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him.

8 O Lord God of hosts, 

who is a strong Lord like unto thee? 

or to thy faithfulness round about thee?

9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: 

when the waves thereof arise, 

thou stillest them.

10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, 

as one that is slain; 

thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arm.

11 The heavens are thine, 

the earth also is thine: 

as for the world and the fulness thereof, 

thou hast founded them.

12 The north and the south thou hast created them: 

Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.

13 Thou hast a mighty arm: 

strong is thy hand, 

and high is thy right hand.

14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: 

mercy and truth shall go before thy face.

15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: 

they shall walk, 

O Lord, 

in the light of thy countenance.

16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day

and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

17 For thou art the glory of their strength: 

and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.

18 For the Lord is our defence; 

and the Holy One of Israel is our king.

or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, 

even from everlasting to everlasting, 

thou art God.


Psalm 147:4-5

4 He telleth the number of the stars; 

he calleth them all by their names.

5 Great is our Lord, 

and of great power: 

his understanding is infinite.


Isaiah 26:4

King James Version

4 Trust ye in the Lord for ever: 

for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:


Jeremiah 10:10-13

King James Version

10 But the Lord is the true God, 

he is the living God, 

and an everlasting king: 

at his wrath the earth shall tremble, 

and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

11 Thus shall ye say unto them, 

The gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, 

even they shall perish from the earth, 

and from under these heavens.

12 He hath made the earth by his power, 

he hath established the world by his wisdom, 

and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

13 When he uttereth his voice, 

there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, 

and he causeth the vapours to ascend 

from the ends of the earth; 

he maketh lightnings with rain, 

and bringeth forth the wind out of his treasures.


Jeremiah 32:17

King James Version

17 Ah Lord God! 

behold, 

thou hast made the heaven and the earth 

by thy great power and stretched out arm, 

and there is nothing too hard for thee:

King James Version

Bible DISCOVERY 10: The LINEAGE of JESUS

 

17 And lo a voice from heaven, 

saying, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased.

Matthew 3:17 

King James Version


Ever wondered about the earth LINEAGE of JESUS?

Of course, SCRIPTURE is my ONLY reference:

23 And Jesus himself 

began to be about thirty years of age, 

being (as was supposedthe son of Joseph, 

which was the son of Heli,

24 Which was the son of Matthat, 

which was the son of Levi, 

which was the son of Melchi, 

which was the son of Janna, 

which was the son of Joseph,

25 Which was the son of Mattathias, 

which was the son of Amos, 

which was the son of Naum, 

which was the son of Esli,

which was the son of Maleleel, 

which was the son of Cainan,

38 Which was the son of Enos, 

which was the son of Seth, 

which was the son of Adam, 

which was the son of God.

Luke 3:23-38 

King James Version


1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ

the son of David, 

the son of Abraham.

2 Abraham begat Isaac; 

and Isaac begat Jacob; 

and Jacob begat Judas 

and his brethren;

3 And Judas begat Phares 

and Zara of Thamar; 

and Phares begat Esrom; 

and Esrom begat Aram;

4 And Aram begat Aminadab; 

and Aminadab begat Naasson; 

and Naasson begat Salmon;

5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; 

and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; 

and Obed begat Jesse;

6 And Jesse begat David the king

and David the king begat Solomon of her 

that had been the wife of Urias;

7 And Solomon begat Roboam; 

and Roboam begat Abia; 

and Abia begat Asa;

8 And Asa begat Josaphat; 

and Josaphat begat Joram; 

and Joram begat Ozias;

9 And Ozias begat Joatham; 

and Joatham begat Achaz; 

and Achaz begat Ezekias;

10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; 

and Manasses begat Amon; 

and Amon begat Josias;

11 And Josias begat Jechonias 

and his brethren, 

about the time they were carried away to Babylon:

12 And after they were brought to Babylon, 

Jechonias begat Salathiel; 

and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;

13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; 

and Abiud begat Eliakim; 

and Eliakim begat Azor;

14 And Azor begat Sadoc; 

and Sadoc begat Achim; 

and Achim begat Eliud;

15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; 

and Eleazar begat Matthan; 

and Matthan begat Jacob;

16 And Jacob begat Joseph 

the husband of Mary, 

of whom was born Jesus, 

who is called Christ.

17 So all the generations from Abraham to David 

are fourteen generations; 

and from David until the carrying away into Babylon 

are fourteen generations; 

and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ 

are fourteen generations.

Matthew 1:1-17 

King James Version


Another amazing find is this verse:

45 And so it is written, 

The first man Adam was made a living soul; 

the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:45 

King James Version


Who do you think was the "last Adam"? 

Listen to these verses, too:

21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, 

who knew no sin; 

that we might be made the righteousness of God 

in him.

2 Corinthians 5:21 

King James Version


16 For God so loved the world, 

that he gave his only begotten Son

that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 

but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 

King James Version


Now, we know the earth "lineage" of JESUS, through his "father" Joseph, as well as the TRUE lineage of the LORD, being the "only begotten Son" of GOD.

Bible DISCOVERY 9: The TRIUNE GOD

 

Do you believe there is a TRIUNE God -- a TRINITY?

Known as God, the FATHER, God the SON, God the HOLY SPIRIT, and all three are ONE?

This verse says it all:

1 John 5:7

King James Version

7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, 

the Father, 

the Word, 

and the Holy Ghost: 

and these three are one.


*the Word is JESUS, as revealed here:

John 1:14

King James Version

14 And the Word was made flesh, 

and dwelt among us

(and we beheld his glory, 

the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) 

full of grace and truth.


Revelation 19:13

King James Version

13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: 

and his name is called The Word of God.


Verses revealing the presence of the Trinity:

Matthew 3:16-17

King James Version

16 And Jesus, 

when he was baptized, 

went up straightway out of the water

and, lo, 

the heavens were opened unto him, 

and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, 

and lighting upon him:

17 And lo a voice from heaven, 

saying, 

This is my beloved Son, 

in whom I am well pleased.


Matthew 28:19

King James Version

19 Go ye therefore, 

and teach all nations, 

baptizing them in the name of the Father, 

and of the Son, 

and of the Holy Ghost:

King James Version

26 But the Comforter, 

which is the Holy Ghost, 

whom the Father will send in my name, 

he shall teach you all things, 

and bring all things to your remembrance, 

whatsoever I have said unto you.


Romans 14:17-18

King James Version

17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; 

but righteousness, 

and peace, 

and joy in the Holy Ghost.

18 For he that in these things serveth Christ 

is acceptable to God

and approved of men.


1 Corinthians 12:4-6

King James Version

4 Now there are diversities of gifts, 

but the same Spirit.

5 And there are differences of administrations, 

but the same Lord.

6 And there are diversities of operations, 

but it is the same God which worketh all in all.


2 Corinthians 1:21-22

King James Version

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ,

 and hath anointed us, 

is God;

22 Who hath also sealed us, 

and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.

he breaketh down, 

and it cannot be built again: 

he shutteth up a man, 

and there can be no opening.

15 Behold, 

he withholdeth the waters, 

and they dry up: 

also he sendeth them out, 

and they overturn the earth.

17 He leadeth counsellors away spoiled, 

and maketh the judges fools.

18 He looseth the bond of kings, 

and girdeth their loins with a girdle.

19 He leadeth princes away spoiled, 

and overthroweth the mighty.

20 He removeth away the speech of the trusty, 

and taketh away the understanding of the aged.

21 He poureth contempt upon princes, 

and weakeneth the strength of the mighty.

22 He discovereth deep things out of darkness, 

and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.

23 He increaseth the nations, 

and destroyeth them: 

he enlargeth the nations, 

and straiteneth them again.

24 He taketh away the heart of the chief  of the people of the earth,

and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers

that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, 

and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

23 That bringeth the princes to nothing; 

he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

24 Yea, they shall not be planted;

and giveth it to whomsoever he will

and setteth up over it the basest of men.

Daniel 4:17 

King James Version


18 O thou king, 

the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father 

a kingdom, 

and majesty, 

and glory, 

and honour:

19 And for the majesty that he gave him, 

all people, 

nations, 

and languages, 

trembled and feared before him: 

whom he would he slew; 

and whom he would hkept alive; 

and whom he would he set up; 

and whom he would he put down.

20 But when his heart was lifted up, 

and his mind hardened in pride, 

he was deposed from his kingly throne, 

and they took his glory from him:

21 And he was driven from the sons of men; 

and his heart was made like the beasts, 

and his dwelling was with the wild asses: 

they fed him with grass like oxen, 

and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; 

till he knew that the most high God 

ruled in the kingdom of men, 

and that he appointeth over it 

whomsoever he will.

which are called by my name,

and will forgive their sin, 

and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14 

King James Version


19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power 

to us-ward who believe, 

according to the working of his mighty power,

20 Which he wrought in Christ, 

when he raised him from the dead, 

and set him at his own right hand 

in the heavenly places,

21 Far above all principality, 

and power,

 and might, 

and dominion, 

and every name that is named, 

not only in this world, 

but also in that which is to come:

22 And hath put all things under his feet, 

and gave him to be the head over all things 

to the church,

23 Which is his body, 

the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
