Illustrations - His Name

Claim the victory in Jesus' Name

In his book Forever Triumphant, F.J. Huegel told a story that came out of World War II. After General Jonathan Wainwright was captured by the Japanese, he was held prisoner in a Manchurian concentration camp. Cruelly treated, he became "a broken, crushed, hopeless, starving man." Finally the Japanese surrendered and the war ended. A United States army colonel was sent to the camp to announce personally to the general that Japan had been defeated and that he was free and in command. After Wainwright heard the news, he returned to his quarters and was confronted by some guards who began to mistreat him as they had done in the past. Wainwright, however, with the news of the allied victory still fresh in his mind, declared with authority, "No, I am in command here! These are my orders." Huegel observed that from that moment on, General Wainwright was in control.
Huegel made this application: "Have you been informed of the victory of your Savior in the greatest conflict of the ages? Then rise up to assert your rights. Never again go under when the enemy comes to oppress. Claim the victory in Jesus' Name." Huegel observed, "We must learn to stand on resurrection ground, reckoning dead the old-creation life over which Satan has power, and living in the new creation over which Satan has no power whatever."

See: Eph 1:18-23; Eph 6:11-17; 1 John 5:4

About the name Immanuel

J. Vernon McGee makes this point about the name Immanuel and how it relates to Christ, "Isaiah said that His name would be Immanuel, but you cannot find any place in the Gospels where He is called by that name.
Immanuel means 'God with us." They called Him Jesus because He would save His people from their sins.
But, friend, He cannot save the people from their sins unless He is Immanuel, "god with us.'
Everytime you call Him Jesus, your are saying, 'God with us.' He is God. He is God with us and God for us. He is our Saviour born of virgin.
Have you put your trust in Him?" (McGee)

Historical Jesus

The name of Jesus is not so much written as ploughed into the history of the world. - Emerson

“Thou shalt call His Name Jesus"

At His Incarnation the Name was a prophecy. “Thou shalt call His Name Jesus; for it is He that shall save His people from their sins.” (Matt. 1:21)
That “prophetic Name” He carried through all life’s mystery and ministry, the Name that told to those that understood, that God's faith was centred in this innocent child, and holy Man. And now having accomplished all, perfected to finality the infinite plan of the Eternal Love, He is invested with the Name which at His birth was prophetic.
The issue is reached, and in the centre of the universe of God, the Man of Nazareth is enthroned, and named by the sweet Name that ever speaks of perfect humanity, and ever declares the fulfillment of the purpose of salvation. At His birth the Name of Jesus was the proclamation of a Divine purpose.
On ascension day it was the ratification of a victory won........ He gave Him the Name- “JESUS”.
