The Name of Jesus is above every name and at His Name EVERY knee SHALL bow ... those in Heaven, on the Earth, and under the Earth.  Philippians 2:9-11 says that this Name --- the Name of Jesus --- is highly exalted.

Philippians 2:9-11 NLT ... God elevated Him to the place of highest honor and gave Him the Name above all other names, that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow (NO choice), in Heaven and on Earth and under the Earth, and every tongue declare (NO choice) that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the Glory of God the Father.

All the angels, authorities, and powers are subject to this Name, and they must obey the commands spoken to them in the Name of Jesus.  This is written in 1 Peter 3:22 ... they have NO CHOICE.

1 Peter 3:22 KJV ... He (Jesus) has gone into Heaven and is at the right hand of God ... angels and authorities having been made subject to Him.

His power in and for us who believe is immeasurable and unlimited, and it surpasses greatness.

Jesus' twelve disciples were commissioned to go into all the world, preach the Gospel, heal the sick, and cast out demons in His Name.  He said that these signs will accompany those who believe.

Mark 16:17,18b  NKJV ... These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe.  They will cast out demons in My Name; they will speak with new tongues; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

Those of us who have invited Jesus into our lives to be our Savior and Lord are in the company of those who believe.  We are to take up the Name of Jesus and use it, speaking it out, to overcome evil and do the same works that Jesus gave His first twelve disciples to do. 

Reverend Robert W. & Mary C. Butler
