Faith Building Block 4

The Right to Use Jesus' Name

by Pastor John Hamel


“And in that day ye shall ask Me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in My name, He will give it you.” (John 16:23)


We have seen that the Believer is a brand New Creation.  


The Believer is the righteousness of God.  


The Believer has been elevated to a position of high authority in the spirit realm.


In this Faith Building Block we will study the Believer’s right to use the Name of Jesus.  Once we fully understand the power that is behind that Name and our right to use it, we will see astounding faith victories.


I have had many tell me that I have enjoyed faith victories because I am a Minister.  However, this is not true.  I have enjoyed faith victories because I am a BELIEVER, not because I am a Minister.  


All Believers possess the authority to enjoy faith victories through the use of Jesus’ Name.  This is what Jesus promises all of His disciples.


“And he [Jesus] said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents [accidentally]; and if they drink any deadly thing [accidentally], it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick [on purpose], and they shall recover.” (Mark 16:15-18)


Jesus said signs, wonders and miracles would follow all Believers.  He did not say they would follow only Ministers.  He did not say these signs would follow only His twelve Apostles either.  


Jesus said that miraculous signs would follow all Believers.


All Believers have the right to use Jesus’ Name and expect miraculous results.  As a matter of fact, Jesus said His followers, corporately, could reproduce all of the miraculous works He produced.


“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father.” (John 14:12)


Some argue this point, of course.  We have all heard the words of doubt and unbelief wrongly spoken by the well meaning unlearned who insist that this verse just simply could not mean what it says.  


However, all the arguing, doubt and unbelief in the world cannot change the Power of God’s written Word.


“For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?  God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar...” (Romans 3:3,4)


If Jesus said that His followers can produce the same miraculous works that He produced, then it’s true.  The Name of Jesus belongs to all Believers today.  


The Name of Jesus has the same power and authority today as it did in Bible days.  Because Jesus never changes, His Name and the right to use His Name never changes.


“Jesus Christ the same, yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8)


The Name of Jesus belongs to His family.  The family members who don’t believe won’t benefit from its power.  Jesus said only the family members who BELIEVE will benefit from its power.


Someone said, “But Pastor John, what if I use Jesus’ Name and it doesn’t work?”  I said, “What if you use Jesus’ Name and it does work?”


All Believers have the authority to use His Name in prayer and against Satan and demon powers, expecting it to produce results.


We have numerous New Testament witnesses that the Blood-backed Name of Jesus is to be used for prayer (John 16:23), salvation (Acts 4:12), against sickness (Acts 3:16), against Satan and demon powers (Mark 16:17), etc., for Jesus' Name is the Name above all names. 


"Wherefore God hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name: That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in Earth, and things under the Earth." (Philippians 2:9-10)


This is the fourth Faith Building Block that belongs to us. 


Don’t doubt it and live without it.  


Believe it and receive it. 


Don’t analyze it.  Utilize it.  


Possess it.  Wield it victoriously.  


Make this Faith confession daily.  “I am a brand new creation in Christ.  I am the righteousness of God.  I am seated in a place of authority with Christ.  I have the right to use Jesus’ Name.”


Be Blessed … John and Barbara Hamel
