Do you know His Name?

Do you know His Name?

 By Atif Himadeh

The following question, “Do you know His name?”, was asked by the most sluggish person. Do you think we, the prudent, can be wiser than this man who declared and said, “Surely I am more brutish than any man, and have not the understanding of a man.” This question was inquired by Agur the son of Jakeh about 3000 year ago who also said in Proverbs 30: 4, “Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?” Jesus said to Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews in John 3: 12-13, “If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.” And if we should ask Christ the same question He would say to us, “And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.” John 3: 13.

 

The Lord Jesus Christ is the only one who descended from heaven and knows what we do not know. I might ascend up to heaven in an imaginative journey in my night dreams.  But the Lord Jesus, He ascended up to heaven after forty days following His resurrection and forty three days following the cross. Who then ascended up to the heavens and descended? What is His name and what is His Son’s name?

 

The other queries that come into one’s mind are as follows: “Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth?” These questions were answered by the Lord Jesus Christ by means of a miracle He performed that no one else can do. “And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep… But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!” Matthew 8: 24, 27. Who else can order the winds and the waves of the sea and they obey Him? These miracles can’t be performed by any mortal. Who is He who did these things? What is His name? What is His Son’s name? Who has established the ends of the earth? These questions were replied to in Hebrews 10: 1, “And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands” The Bible also says in Genesis 1: 1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth”. Who has, then, this authority to establish the ends of the earth? This query was answered by Jesus in Matthew 28: 18, “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” Again who has established the ends of the earth? What is His name? Do you know what His Son’s name is?

 

You might ask, “Is God the one who is meant here?” You are right. But what is His name? What is His name’s Son? John the Baptist witnessed about the Son of God. He said in John 1: 34, “And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God” The Apostle John the beloved also said in 1 John 5: 20, “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”  Jesus witnessed about Himself in John 10: 30, “I and my Father are one.” Philip the Apostle said to the Lord Jesus, “ Show us the Father.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” John 14: 9-10. What is His name and what is His Son’s name? His name is God the incarnate. The Lord Jesus Christ is His Son’s name. The Bible says in Matthew 28: 19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.” Take note that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit have one name that is “in the Name”. This name is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says in Acts 4: 10, 12, “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…..Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

 

Therefore, every one who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ will not perish but have everlasting life. The Bible says in 1John 5: 20, “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”

 

Then if Man believes in the Lord Jesus Christ who declared that He will not throw out anyone who comes unto Him, he will undoubtedly receive eternal life. For the Lord Jesus is the one who posses all authority to either send you to Heaven or to Hell.  If you believe in Him, you will surely be saved and not perish.

 

Pray, if you please, the following prayer by faith in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and you will receive salvation and eternal life:

 

O Lord Jesus Christ you are God, the incarnate. You descended from Heaven. Please forgive my sins with your blood that was shed on the cross. Come dwell in my heart and grant me eternal life. I pray this in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.”

 

If you have prayed this prayer and Christ has heard your request, please write to us so that we may pray for you.
