The Name Of The Father,Son, And Holy Spirit

The Name Of The Father,

Son, And Holy Spirit!

 

 

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost… (Matthew 28:19-20).

 

The words of the Master above are so remarkable! There’re two things I want you to observe. First is the very idea that men should be baptised into a name; and then the second is the fact that the name is Jesus. Notice the Master didn’t say, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the names of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost….”Rather, He said, “in the Name”; He used a singular term, even though He was referring to the Trinity—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

In carrying out the instructionsof Jesus, the apostles didn’t baptize anyone saying, “We baptize you in the Name of the Father, we baptize you in the name of the Son, and we baptize you in the name of the Holy Ghost.” The Bible says they baptized in the Name of Jesus. When Peter addressed the Jews in Acts Chapter two he said to them,“…Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…” (Acts 2:38). The apostles understood without any ambiguity that the name Jesus is the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

 

This is easy to understand when you study Philippians 2:9-11: “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….” This is referring to anything and every being that exists in heaven, in earth, and under the earth.

 

Thus, if there were any other names in heaven belonging to anyone else, they’ll have to bow to the Name of Jesus. When you call the Name “Jesus,” you’re talking of Deity; the fullness of the Godhead—the Father, Son and Holy Spirit: “For it pleased the Father that in him (Jesus) should all fullness dwell… (Colossians 1:19).

 

Prayer

 

 

Blessed be God, who has given me the power of attorney to use the awesome Name of Jesus in prayer, and live by it! My joy is full today because I know the Father has granted every request and petition I make of Him, in Jesus’ Name.
