𝗧𝗼 𝗣𝗿𝗮𝘆 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗡𝗮𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗝𝗲𝘀𝘂𝘀 𝗼𝗿 𝗡𝗼𝘁, 𝗣𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝟵𝗣𝗿𝗮𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 ❞𝗻𝗮𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗝𝗲𝘀𝘂𝘀,❞𝘀𝗼 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝘁 𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆❓Jer. 29:8, “For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.9 For they prophesy falsely unto you 𝗶𝗻 𝗺𝘆 𝗻𝗮𝗺𝗲: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.”The above passage reveals fully what it means to pray or prophesy in a person’s name. Here, God is warning the people not to listen to what they say “IN HIS NAME,” for He has not sent them.Meaning, they were being misled by them as the fake prophets who were not in accordance with His purpose or plan for the people of Israel. Otherwise what name were they using or calling upon?So, essentially praying or prophesying in His name means you are standing as a representative of God in that situation.Therefore, Jesus is saying inJohn 14:13, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”When we pray in the “name of Jesus,“ we are acknowledging that our prayers are offered through His authority and power, even as He taught His disciples to pray “in my name.”Now this doesn’t mean that we should tack on ‘’in Jesus’ name” to the end of our prayers. What do I really mean by saying that? you may ask.You see, when we can pronounce the name, “Jesus,” others will be calling Him with “Yeshua;” in Chinese, “Yesu;” the same with Swahili, “Yesu;” and yet in the Isoko language, “Jesu,” etc.So who is correct in all these? What’s His name then? You see it is not about the “Name JESUS,” but the authority behind that name.Therefore, the idea is not about the specific word ”Jesus” that matters, but rather our relationship with Him and the understanding of who He is, no matter what language or words you may use.Meaning, it is not about using a specific formula or words but about approaching prayers with a heart that is aligned with Christ being consistent with the character and teachings of Jesus. And where this is missing, then you are a false prophet or teacher, etc.Therefore, it doesn’t matter if we shout the name “Jesus” out loud or not in our prayers. What really matters is our attitude and intention behind our prayers.And even if prayer is for only to get what we want, then, of course, we are also abusing the name, which is His authority and power. Most often we pray to establish His will and authority on the earth.So, whatsoever you may ask in my name--as the Mediator, that will I do as the Head and Lord of the Kingdom of God to which you are now birthed into by the Spirit.To be continued.www.davidogaga.org#Thename_DO ...
