The Wonderful Name of Jesus by E.W. Kenyon
This book is a thrilling exposition of the power and authority vested in the Name of Jesus, and the believer’s right to use that Name.
This book has changed the prayer life of multitudes. If you wish power in prayer, this book is a must. It will thrill and astound you, when you find out who you are in Christ, and what Christ is in you.
Don’t be a weak, defeated Christian, find out what the Word has to say about you, what your rights and privileges are as a believer.
Although he was called Home to be with the Lord in 1948, the writings of Dr. E.W. Kenyon, continue to thrill and excite and make the Word of God a living reality…no one that reads his books with an open mind can ever be the same again. They are a mighty unveiling of the Pauline Revelation, and are the basis for all the deeper life teaching and revival that is sweeping the world today.
Chapter 1//”So the possibilities enfolded in that Name are beyond our understanding, and when He says to the church, ‘whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My Name,’ He is giving us a signed check on the resources of heaven and asking us to fill it in!!!”
I really, really liked this!! He paid for it, but we have to use it!!!! The check is signed and ready but I choose whether I will access what He has paid for!!
Chapter 2//The Name of Jesus has been given to us!! It is ours!! What is mine, I do not need faith to use!!! All that Jesus was, His Name is! That Name is ours!!! So good!! His Name is ours!! We just have to use it! All the power and authority is in His Name and He gave it to US!!
Chapter 3//The wave of crime and lawlessness that is sweeping over the land is but a by-product of the modernists’ challenge of His integrity!! He is who He says He is; I choose to believe in Him, His cause, His Name, and everything He stands for!!
Chapter 4//His Name is the center everything revolves around!! In His Name we pray, we are healed, we receive the Holy Spirit, we worship- its all in His Name!!!
Chapter 5//Christ is at the right hand of the Father-we are here as His representatives! When we pray in Jesus’ name we are taking the place of the absent Christ; we are using His name, using His authority!!
My favorite was Peter did not stop to even pray for sick people all he does is say “In Jesus’ name rise and walk”!!!! I have the power. No need to analyze, worry, or wonder!!! It was given to me to use!!!
I enjoyed this chapter and how pointed it was!!! When reason takes the place of the miraculous, Christianity loses its virility, fascination, and fruitfulness!! Christianity is NOT a religion; it is the life of God in man!!!!! So good! The example of Peter and how changed he was when he was filled with the Holy Spirit! The life of God IN HIM!
This chapter is so good! Too many people just listen to the Word but don’t act…we MUST act!!!!
All Jesus was, all He did, and all He is and all that He will ever be is in that NAME! He is healing, He is health, He is victory, He is our all in all!!
You don’t try to believe, it is ours!!! Do not try; do not struggle, just use HIS name!!! Sooo good!!! We aren’t “trying” we are believing and doing!!!! It is ours!
It is not a question of our worthiness; it is a question of His standing in heaven!!!
I don’t have to earn it!!! He made the way, it is finished!!! I have the authority to use His name!!! It is not based on my works but what I believe!!
The story of Peter and John at the Gate Beautiful…that is one of my favorites!!! Peter wasn’t saying he didn’t have anything, but that what would really bring value to that man wasn’t something he could earn but something he was given through the Name!!!! A man paralyzed from birth rising up immediately to walk, that same power we have access to in His Name!!!!!
Wow! The early church really understood, valued and stood on the Name!!!
They walked and lived in the conscious freshness of the power of the Name of Jesus!!
Their appeal was in the Name of Jesus!!
They appreciated the Name of Jesus!!!
That is exactly how we should be!! Not in works trying to make it happen but totally dependent and believing on His Name and the power it is!!
A couple of my highs
“The power is not in fasting or consecration, not in long prayers, but it is in the Name of Jesus!!!”
“If you learn to use the Name according to the Word in the power of the Spirit you have the secret which shook the world through the apostles!!!”
“Sin, sickness, circumstance, Satan, all MUST YEILD TO THAT NAME!!!”
We have power in the Name!!!! Not in what we can do, only IN HIM!! We want to shake our world and turn it upside down so we must be serious about His Name!!
The human spirit seeks God as the flower seeks the sun. Basing our faith upon what we have done and counting more on experiences than upon the Word eventually leads us into darkness and doubt!!! So good!!!! I will not allow myself to depend on what I can do, see, or feel; but only on the WORD and what HE says!
I really liked the comparison between being baptized in Him to a marriage. When we are baptized in Him we are baptized into all that His Name stands for- its wealth, its honor, its power, its glory!! I am in Him; so that is who I now identify with!!
I am a new creation IN HIM!! His justification is MINE; His righteousness is MINE; His health is MINE; His freedom is MINE; for IN HIM I enjoy all that He did and all that He now is!! I am HIS! I am who HE says I am! His health, freedom, victory is MINE; I just choose to walk in it!
Our spirit should rule!! God designed it that way!! I will put my flesh in check!! I don’t want anything to rule me but my Spirit man!! In anything and everything I do, I will be successful if my Spirit is guiding me!
The happiness of a home is in the fellowship between the members of that household!! The real fruit of life is fellowship!! I really like this!! I must have constant fellowship with the Father to develop relationship, confidence, and peace! It isn’t just knowing who He is and what He says; but everyday making it real through fellowship!
“It is when the great things of Scripture are held as doctrines rather than as a reality, when the opinions of men are put above the Word of God. Out of this will grow an inferiority complex in the spiritual realm. ”
Wow! When people’s opinions are on the forefront of my mind I can immediately know I’m treating the Word as doctrine instead of reality!!! I don’t want to just KNOW! I want it to be REALITY in my life!!! I will not just be a hearer but I will do!
