OK ANOTHER STORY ABOUT AN EAGLET WHO LIVED WITH THE CHICKENS
There once was an eaglet that came down from a migration into a barnyard
and liked it so much that he stayed in the barnyard with the chickens.
When his companions flew overhead, the eaglet's first impulse was to join them
but he had fed too well and could rise no higher than the eaves of the barn.
The day came when his old fellow travelers could fly overhead without his even hearing their call.
Many christians are like this eaglet who once mounted up with wings like eagles
but are now content to live in the barnyard of this world.
They may have a momentary impulse to sing
My heart has no desire to stay where doubts arise and fears dismay
But they have fed too well and settle in this world's barnyard
and the day comes when they no longer respond to the call from on high.
Friends don't be like this eaglet
Remember the world is our enemy
Be not deceived; Evil communications corrupt good manners.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,
and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you.
Witness to unsaved sinners in public places showing them the love of Jesus
but don't be with unsaved sinners in their homes when they drink and do drugs.
Alright, for today's lesson let's look at the many benefits of the name of Jesus. First the name of Jesus is a saving name. Pictured above Acts 4:12 says neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name (Jesus) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Romans 10:13 also says For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord (Jesus) shall be saved.
Buddha, Mohammed, Gandhi, and Allah can't save anyone. Only the name of Jesus can save anyone. Water baptism, works, and wafers won't save anyone; People have asked Brother Bob what plan do you offer for salvation. Brother Bob tells these people I don't offer a plan; I offer a person named Jesus for salvation. Salvation's not in a plan, church membership, or shaking hands with a six foot spiritual icicle after church; Salvation's in a person named Jesus. Right now get saved; repent, stop sinning, and make Jesus God of your life, believing daily that Jesus died on the cross for you, was buried, and rose again. Jesus said at John 14:6 I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father but by me.
And take time to read two more bible scriptures that prove that only the name of Jesus can save anyone. Mattthew 1:21 says And she (Mary) shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS, for He shall save His people from their sins. Also John 1:12 says But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.
Next we see pictured above that the name of Jesus defeats the devil. Jesus said at Mark 16:17 in my name shall they cast out devils. Luke 10:17 also says And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.
Friends remember the promise of Psalm 91:11 For He (Jesus) shall give his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways; they shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. When you pray daily say, in the name of Jesus, I give my angels power to bind the devil and his demons and cast them into the pit of hell and lake of fire.
The reason christians should cast the devil and his demons into the pit of hell and lake of fire is stated at Psalm 140:9-10. Speak this scripture: As for the head of those that compass me about (the devil) let the mischief of their own lips cover them. Let burning coals fall upon them; let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again. The bible tells us to tell our angels in the name of Jesus to cast the devil into the deep pits of hell and the lake of fire because the devil can not rise up again from these places.
Another benefit about the name of Jesus is stated at Philippians 2:9: Wherefore God also 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 (even the devil has to bow his knee to Jesus) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Truly there is power in the name of Jesus. Many politicians, governors, and senators are afraid to mention the name of Jesus in their speeches. Instead they say bless God, bless the Lord, but they won't say bless Jesus. But one day soon, Jesus will be King of this earth for 1000 years in Jerusalem and every nation will have to say bless King Jesus to receive any blessing.
Notice also the second picture of Colossians 3:17 that says And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Friends everywhere, believe the promise Jesus said about His name at John 14:13-14 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. Brother Bob believes this: I pray in Jesus name that anyone on this earth that reads these words will always be healed and get saved and live forevermore in peace with Jesus. In the name of Jesus bless the saints reading this to be able to minister, travel, and reach multitudes on this earth with the gospel message of salvation by our Lord Jesus.
Another benefit about the name of Jesus is seen at Acts 5:40 pictured above where saints can rejoice that they are counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. Remember, the reason saints are persecuted by this world and enemies is (not because of us) (it's because of Jesus in us). 1 Peter 4:14 tells us how to respond when we are persecuted because of the name of Jesus; The scripture says If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy (not depressed) are ye; for the Spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you; on their part He is evil spoken of, but on your part He is glorified.
I pray in Jesus name that all my friends all over this earth can live Luke 6:22 and say I'm blessed when men shall hate me, and when they shall separate me from their company (Brother Bob is blessed and rejoicing because all my Jewish relatives have nothing to do with me because of Jesus), and shall reproach me, and cast out my name as evil, for the Son of Man's sake (because of the name of Jesus). I'm gonna rejoice in that day and leap for joy (and like Brother Bob find the nearest Walmart bathroom and leap for joy with no shame) for behold my reward is great in heaven.
Lord Jesus let us all be like the apostles who rejoiced after they were beaten for speaking in the name of Jesus. Acts 5:40 says And when they had called the apostles and beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus and let them go. And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. and daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
And finally the name of Jesus brings healing and peace. After Peter spoke the name of Jesus Christ to the lame man pictured above, the lame man was healed. Acts 3:6 says Then Peter said (to the lame man), Silver and gold have I none, but such as I have give I thee; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.
Here's how the lame man described his healing; First there was a lameness, then a look, then a limp, and then a leap of joy OR First there was a look, then a lifting, then life in the ankles and then a leap. And Acts 4:10 again proclaimed that the lame man was healed by the name of Jesus saying Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole.
And to conclude the name of Jesus is a strong tower where saints can find safety. Proverbs 18:10 says The name of the Lord (Jesus) is a strong tower; the righteous runneth into it and is safe. Brother Bob has had the name of Jesus on his apartment door for 27 years and has been safe from all harm. Every time I close my apartment door I say the name of Jesus is on my apartment door and my home is safe. I encourage my friends everywhere to place the name of Jesus on the doors of their homes and everywhere (in their cars) to stop the devil from stealing, killing, and destroying. Remember the name of Jesus will cast out the devil.
My friend Sheba once told me Brother Bob what will stop people from coming through the windows of my home and stealing. I told Sheba to put the name of Jesus on her front and back doors. The next day I rejoiced when I saw the name of Jesus on every door and window of Sheba's house. And wow Sheba and her kids have been blessed for 15 years and nothing has been stolen or harmed from their home.
