There is a sure sign there is Power in the name of Jesus when the Believer forfeits all and claims the name of Jesus.It is then we realize we truly can move mountains in our life!
Jesus said: “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.And whatsoever ye shall ask IN MY NAME,that will I do,that the Father may be glorified in the Son”.(John 14:12,14).
Jesus did many miracles among the people which the disciples also saw,but did you know the disciples did not believe when Jesus returned from the grave? even though he was of his word and Jesus scolded(UPBRAIDED) them for this unbelief. “And they,when they had heard that he was alive,and had been seen of her (Mary Magdalene),belived not.After that he appeared in another form unto two of them,as they walked,and went into the country.And they went and told it unto the residue:neither believed they them.Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat,and upbraided(scolded) them with their unbelief and hardness of heart,because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen”.(Mark 16:11-14).
Surely if we saw miracles today we’d believe! Would’nt We? People are no different than in Jesus day…………Their hard hearts and unbelief are still here in the earth now!
We are his disciples today in this world of darkness,we are a light that shines in a dark place.It is written “God worked special miracles by the hands of of paul”.(Acts 19:11).We too will work miracles through the Holy Spirit if we believe! Even greater we’re told.
“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 and if they drink any deadly thing,it shall not hurt them;they shall lay hands on the sick,and they shall recover”.(Mark 16:17,18).
There is POWER IN THE NAME of Jesus and the believer receives this when the Holy Spirit comes upon them. “But ye shall receive power,after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you:and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem,and in Judea,and in Samaria,and unto the uttermost part of the earth”.(Act’s 1:8).
