11 HOW DID JESUS OBTAIN THIS NAME? THERE ARE 3 WAYS OF GETTING A “NAME”- BY INHERITANCE- BY BESTOWAL- BY CONQUEST
12 1.BY INHERITANCEHEBREWS 1:1-5 1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
13 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.5 For to which of the angels did He ever say: “ You are My Son Today I have begotten You”?....VERY IMPORTANT: WHEN DID JESUS INHERIT THE NAME?
14 HE WAS NOT BEGOTTEN WHEN HE CAME INTO THE WORLD JOHN 1:1,4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.....JESUS PREEXISTED WITH THE FATHER
15 JESUS WAS NOT BORN AS HE TOOK ON FLESH HEBREWS 10:5 - 5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “ Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, But a body You have prepared for Me.
16 THEN WHEN WAS THAT DAY?ACTS 13:33 - God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: ‘ You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.’JESUS WAS BEGOTTEN AT RESURRECTION!JESUS TASTED SPIRITUAL DEATH FOR US ALL!
17 2. BY BESTOWALPhilippians 2: Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
18 FOR THE CHURCHEphesians 1: And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.GOD HAS MADE THE INVESTMENT IN THE NAME OF JESUS FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CHURCH;WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DRAW FROM IT FOR ALL OUR NEEDS!
19 3. BY CONQUESTColossians 2:15 - Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.Colossians 1:13 - He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His loveJESUS TOTALLY DEFEATED SATAN FOR OUR BENEFIT!!
20 WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS NAME? ALL IN THE NAME! - Colossians 3:17 - And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.GIVE THANKS IN THE NAME! Ephesians 5:20 - giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
21 WHAT TO DO WITH JESUS NAME?
