1.Use the Name of Jesus to Put Sickness to Flight
“In my name…they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” –Mark 16:17-18 (NKJV)
Notice this verse doesn’t say the sick might recover—it Says they WILL! No matter how minor or severe, sickness and disease don’t belong in your body. You are Healed! But you have to take your health by force and take it by faith. Every sickness, and disease has a name – the flu is a name, cancer is a name, heart disease is a name. Every name must bow to the Name of Jesus.
In his book Ever Increasing Faith, Smith Wigglesworth told a story about a man who had been bedridden and was in desperate need of healing. He sent for a group of his friends who were Faith-Filled people, asking them to pray the prayer of Faith over him. But after praying, they didn’t have any immediate results. So, they left – discouraged.
When they were still standing outside, one of them said, “There is one thing we didn’t do.” So, they went back inside, gathered in a group, and started to whisper the Name of Jesus. At first, as they whispered nothing seemed to happen. But, as they continued to whisper, “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!” the power began to fall. As they began to see this manifestation, their whisper turned into shouting. As they were shouting the Name – that Powerful Name—the man got up from his bed and got dressed.
They had started out by praying in Faith for the healing of this man: but their eyes were on the man and his condition the whole time. When they changed their focus and fixed all their attention on the Name of Jesus, their Faith took hold of the Power that is in His Name.
When you use the Name of Jesus, Satan backs off. He has no choice. The only thing he can do is try to deceive you into believing something other than what the Word Says. So, when you start believing for your healing or Divine Health, don’t allow him to get a foothold. The Bible Tells us to give him no place. Instead, learn to be bold.
When we use the Name of Jesus to lay hands on the sick, we’re ministering the love of Jesus to them. It’s the love of Jesus within that will cause you to put your own feelings aside – your reservations about laying hands on people in public or in other situations and will give the opportunity for the love of God to operate.
Healing is God’s calling card. If you will learn to use the Name of Jesus, you won’t have any trouble getting people saved. It is the easiest thing in the world to get people saved when you get them healed first.
2)Use the Name of Jesus to Rebuke Lack
“Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honour and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.” –Philippians 2:9-10
Just like every sickness has a name, lack is a name. And it covers more than money. Any area where you are in lack – peace in your family, joy in your spirit, finances – every name in that category has to bow to the Name of Jesus. Everything you read in Deuteronomy 28 that is under the curse of the Law, is lack, and it is of the devil. You have been Redeemed from everything under the curse. So, don’t tolerate it!
THE BLESSING is your lot: that’s what you’re to expect. Nothing less. How do you contend for it?
By using the Name of Jesus when the devil comes to steal from you. Just as you wouldn’t tolerate someone barging into your home and taking your goods, you can’t tolerate the devil and his attempts to take what is rightfully yours in the Name of Jesus.
So, when lack tries to come into your family, rebuke it. Say, “Lack, I rebuke you in Jesus’ Name. You’re not coming into my family. You can’t come into my bank account. Jesus Came that I might have life and have it more abundantly. I take my BLESSING now, in the Name of Jesus.”
Stand your ground in every area. Revelation 19:13 Says the Name of Jesus is the Word of God! So, when an evil spirit is trying to bring sickness, poverty, depression or any other garbage into your household, you don’t have to quote every scripture you know to stop him. You can just point your finger at him and say, “Jesus!” That’s like throwing the whole Word of God in his face at one time! Amen.
There is a force so vast in its Power that it triumphs over any problem, any trial, and any situation. Demons flee from it, disease cannot remain in the face of it, lack and fear dissipate before it, and every darkness is instantly shattered by it. Even death itself cannot contend with it. What is it?
