Name Above All Names

Scripture:  Philippians 2 v 7 - 11: "But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8  And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. 
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."

Names are very important to us.  A good name shows a clean reputation, a bad name puts one in a bad light.  We earn those privileges and a good name can take us far in life.

Jesus had earned a name that was above every other name.  He was highly exalted by God because of His humility and obedience.  Every knee should bow at the mention of His name.  His name is higher than any other.......names of people, places, countries, stars, animals, mountains, rivers or whatever has a name.

And some humans use this glorious name as a curse word.  Things under the Earth would be Hell, Satan, demons, fallen angels, dead sinners.  Satan and his demons definitely want the name of Jesus to be cursed, diminished, ineffective because in the name of Jesus their interaction with humans is halted and they are consigned back to Hell.

In the name of Jesus there is salvation healing, deliverance, miracles, forgiveness, mercy, power over sin and the flesh.  There is worship, praise, hymns, songs, poems, books exalting Jesus and thanking Him with grateful hearts.

About forty years ago the Lord gave me a revelation about our names in relation to all the above information.  He told me that the ability of Satan to control every human being from behind the scene was through mainly two things.  Our names and birthdays.  Every captured soldier knows he only has to reveal name and number.

In this unseen war our number is our birth date, 01:01:1991.  Satan devised a clever system called Astrology to get everybody possible involved in star signs and their meanings related to our date of birth.  It is used by millions of people to predict future events, or to give us a personal daily insight to affect our events of the day.

The other string he pulls is that unless our names are given by Jesus, he manipulates them to flaunt the demons he has deployed to cause us stress, sickness, strife and misery.  In the revelation the Holy Spirit taught me how to discern those demons in people's names.

I was praying for a woman named Isabella who was emotionally crippled. Many had struggled to help her and failed.  I carried on until the Lord said: Drop a D in front of her name and say it aloud. DISABLE HER is what I said. Jesus said that is satan's curse over her life. I prayed to break that curse and restore her fully and from that day she recovered. Glory to Jesus!

Genesis 17 v 1, 5: "And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 

 5  Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee."

Abram and Sarai had to have God change their names to Abraham and Sarah before they could conceive Isaac. Saul (Destroyer) or "Soul Destroyer" had to become Paul (Worker) to be an Apostle of Christ.  I have seen the Lord do  many miracles after breaking the bondage over our names.  
Acts 13 v 8 - 10: "But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
9  Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
10  And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?"  The name Elymas means sorcerer, who practices black magic and other dark arts, and those demons want to stop Paul from ministering to an interested official.

Every time we are busy with ministry and interruptions, distractions, phone calls, emergencies stop the flow of the Holy Spirit, which is caused by our enemy to try to prevent another soul escaping from his evil clutches.  Paul was having none of it and he cursed that evil man with blindness for a season so he could continue his work.

These are examples for us but with political correctness, human rights and activists of all kinds, trying that in public today will send us to prison.  But we can pray and bind adverse activity that stops the spread of the gospel.

Satan has to flaunt, so everything that has a name is subject to bondage. The Lord showed me Budapest, Hungary. He said the people are hungry for My Word because Buddha is a Pest over them.  The antichrist spirit of Buddha manifested in that place and they were starved of the knowledge of the Bible.  

Another place was Cuba.  I was shown A Cub.  A Cub of the Bear, The USSR.  A Cub that had taunted the USA with the Cuban Missile Crisis in the 60's.  The Lord said I should pray to distract the mother bear which I did.  Within days the Russian President  Mikhail Gorbachev, and his cabinet, just quit.  It did not stop Cuba being communist but it did open doors for preachers to visit and people to be saved.  It also changed Russia, removing the Iron Curtain and restrictions on Christianity.  

We all have names, not all can see these things but we can pray over our own names, names of family members and friends or even the contact list on our phones.  We don't need to know what but we ask Jesus, the name above all names, to break the bondage hidden in every name.  

We may stop terrorists, or crazy white males, or whoever from shooting up Wal-Mart, cinemas or nightclubs, food fairs or schools.  We may stop a hurricane or a bad storm.  Take those names to Jesus and put those situation in His hands.  Break the bondage over the towns, townships, streets, cities, states, provinces, counties, islands, mountains, and whatever else has a name, celebs, bands, drug cartels, and countries where drugs are cultivated.  Pray over the names of government officials, big business monopolies and see what Jesus will do to to perform the will of the Father on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Christians, if we cannot go and preach the gospel, or afford to fund others, then we must pray like never before to stop the rampant enemy in his tracks.  We can stop sickness, disorders, riots, chaos if we unite in a common purpose for Jesus.  We must become activists against evil and our God will back us up.  He never gatecrashes but waits to be invited.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You always have an answer to the deadly plans of satan. Your answer is Jesus! In the name of Jesus every knee must bow for He is Lord.  Help us to pray without ceasing.  Activate all the passive people into taking back the cities and streets that are being violated.  Let us gridlock the power of Satan and destroy his strongholds.  We thank You for the authority and power in Jesus' name. Amen.
