The songwriter penned the words, “Jesus, Jesus, there’s just something about that Name.”  Oh, how true those words.  Let us continue.  In Hosea He is the husband of an unfaithful wife.  In Joel He is the Holy Ghost baptizer, the hope of His people.  In Amos He is a plumbline, and in Obadiah He is the fire in the house of Jacob.  In Jonah He is a great fish and life to a condemned people.  In Micah He is the ruler in Israel whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting, and in Nahum He is our stronghold in the day of trouble.  In Habakkuk He is a vision that will not tarry, and in Zephaniah He is a consuming job.  In Haggai He is the desire of all nations.  In Zechariah He is the fountain opened for sins, and in Malachi He is the messenger of the Covenant, the sun of righteousness rising with healing in His wings.

Then we come to the Gospels.  In Matthew He is the head corner stone.  In Mark He is the miracle worker, the Son of the Blessed, the Holy One of God.  In Luke He is the Son of the Highest, our Savior, and our Lord.  And in John He is the Word that was in the beginning, the water of life, the bread of life, the way, the truth, and the life, the door of the sheep, and the true vine.

In Acts He is Pentecost and Lord of all.  In Romans He is the intercessor, the stumbling stone, and the rock of offense.  In 1 Corinthians He is the gifts of the Spirit, and in 2 Corinthians He is the promises of God, in Him, yea, and in Him, Amen.  In Galatians He is the fruit of the spirit and our redemption from the curse of the law.  In Ephesians He is the whole armor of God, and in Philippians He is the source of and supplier of all anointing strength and need.  In Colossians He is the head of the body.  In 1 & 2 Thessalonians He is our soon coming King.  In 1 Timothy He is the eternal King and only Potentate and in 2 Timothy He is the seed of David raised from the dead.  In Titus He is our blessed hope, and in Philemon our emancipator.  In Hebrews He is our brother, the apostle of our profession, our high priest, our mediator, and the author and finisher of our faith.  In James He is the Lord of glory.  And glorious Lord He truly is.  His Name is Jesus.

The Name of Jesus – Part Two

One song-writer said it well; “What a lovely name, the Name of Jesus.”

Let’s continue to consider the might Name of Jesus.  In the Old Testament He was promised to come.  In the four Gospels He came.  In Acts He returned to the Father.  In the Epistles He revealed how He can live through us.  In Revelation He is coming again.  He is the perfect outshining of the Father, of our God Who is love.

He is the breadth of God’s love – offering security in walking and limitless balance.  He is the length of God’s love – as long and unending as is the distance He has cast our sins from us, from the east to the west.  He is the depth of God’s love – indicative of darkness, not to the point of concealment, but beyond the realm of human understanding, except it be revealed by Him because He IS love.  He is the height of God’s love – soaring into the picturesque elevations that leave the natural mind spinning in the dizziness of the eternal.  And there is yet so much more.  Every book in the Bible is a clear revelation of Who Jesus is – of His Name that is above every name.

In Genesis he is the Creative Word of God from the mouth of Father.  In Exodus He is the Passover Lamb.  In Leviticus He is the Scapegoat and our High Priest.  In Numbers He is the Holy Rod of Aaron, the cloud by day and the fire by night.  In Deuteronomy He is the Rock of Salvation.  In Joshua He is a hornet and Captain of our salvation.  In Judges He is the lamp of Gideon.  In Ruth He is the Kinsman Redeemer.  In 1 Samuel He is the anointing oil and in 2 Samuel a light unto David.  In 1 Kings He is a still small voice and in 2 Kings the mantle of Elijah.  In 1 Chronicles He is the sound of going in the tops of the mulberry trees and in 2 Chronicles a consuming fire.  In Ezra He is the temple rebuilt.  In Nehemiah He is the walls of Jerusalem rebuilt.  In Esther He is the golden scepter, and in Job my hedge.  In Psalms He is my Shepherd, and in Proverbs the crown jewels of wisdom from the throne room of glory.  In Ecclesiastes He is the Preacher.  In the Song of Solomon He is the Bridegroom.  In Isaiah He is Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.  In Jeremiah He is the potter that molds the clay; the righteous branch.  In Lamentations He is the Compassionate Judge, and in Ezekiel He was the noise of many waters.  In Daniel He was the fourth man.  Oh, how good to know the Name of Jesus.
