Something About That Name “Jesus” (3)
So many are conversant with the story behind the text above – yes the story of blind Bartimaeus but however, they remain naïve of the efficacy and potency of the name, JESUS. Blind Bartimaeus knew this; hence he was determined to use both the efficacy and potency that this name carries to get his sight despite the multitude that tried to hush him.
Child of God, there are so many challenges in life. There are so many obstacles that you need to face here on earth. Like I do tell my congregation, the greater the challenges and obstacles that they have to face, it is a sign of their greatness. It is not the level or degree of your knowledge about your problem that matters (please don’t get me wrong it is good you know where your problem lies) but your knowledge of where the solution is that matters most.
Blind Bartimaeus was well aware of the truth that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life, and he was willing to stop at nothing so as to have an encounter with Him. And beloved, after his (Bartimaeus’) encounter with Jesus, his life never remained the same – he was never referred to as blind Bartimaeus again. Child of God, what is it that has robbed you of your sleep? What has made you visit all sorts of spiritual homes in the quest for a solution? What is it that has brought you in no talking terms with members of your family? There is only but one solution –the name of JESUS.
Most times we tend to amplify our problems, giving it the publicity and advertisement that it doesn’t deserve when we are only supposed to command whatever situation in the name of Jesus and they must comply (Acts 16:18).
God did not make a mistake in giving us a domain (Genesis 1:28, Luke 19:13) to dominate. When we lost that domain to the devil, He had to send His son Jesus to restore all that was lost to Satan. He (God) further gave us the power to command (Mark 16:17-18) anything back to order – He gave you eyes to see, ears to hear, hands to hold and womb to bear forth children. So if the devil has stolen the original purpose of these organs, you have the kingdom rights to command them back to order in Jesus’ mighty name.
Beloved, you have cried for too long and as a matter of fact your tears do not move God rather they disappoint Him. The only thing that God respects is your faith in the name of His son Jesus. Have you been wondering why you are yet unmarried? Or why your business is still at its lowest ebb? Or why you are yet to be gainfully employed? Or perhaps why you haven’t after all these years carried your own child? You don’t need to worry any more. I believe brother Bartimaeus once had been a worrier but until the day he had full knowledge about the solution to his problems, he chose to become a warrior with faith in the name of Jesus. Thou beloved of God I charge you today to become a warrior and fight the good fight of faith (I Timothy 6:5) in that all powerful name of Jesus and your story must change for the best in Jesus name.
• Every good thing that the evil ones have stolen from my life by the power in the name of Jesus I recover them all.
• Oh Lord let my Joseph move from prison to palace in Jesus name.
• Let my David arise and kill every Goliath that is boasting against my life in Jesus name.
• Oh Lord empower me to rejoice over my enemies in Jesus name.
• Every spirit of frustration assigned against my life, you shall not succeed, go back to your sender in Jesus name.
Beloved, permit me to use this medium to invite you to our “Golden Deliverance,” which will begin on the 20th of February, 2012 (to last for three days). It sure promises to be an encounter that will turn around your life and destiny for good in Jesus name. For further enquires, call the numbers displayed above.
God bless you!
