MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your
mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have
success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
THE USE OF THE NAME OF JESUS
[Part 2 of 8]
*____I cannot see where we need to have any special Faith to use the Name of Jesus, because it is legally ours. If I had a thousand dollars in the bank, it would not require any conscious act of Faith on my part to write
a check for one hundred, but if I wanted to draw eleven hundred dollars where I only had one thousand on deposit, that might require Faith.
____Some of us have had the unhappy experience of having overdrawn our
bank account on earth, but the Finished Work of Jesus Christ has made a deposit for us in the Bank up there that cannot be overdrawn. It is ours-blessedly, eternally ours. Thank God!
____If you are a child, then
you are an heir of God, a joint heir with Christ, you have a Right to the use of the Name of Jesus, and if you have this Right, it is because of your place in the family.
____I believe the hour will come when
large companies of believers will live this simple life of Faith; live it unconsciously, live it daily, they will live in this upper realm where they will see in the Name of Jesus the fullness of the authority and power that was in Christ when He walked on
____We are now in the babyhood stage : we are trying to have faith; we are trying to believe: and we meet together in our services, each one urging the other to do, what he does not do himself.
____It would seem in many cases that we are practicing a game of bluff.
____Are we using Scriptural expressions and high sounding phrases that have no meaning to our inner consciousness?
Thank God, there are some who are coming to see this new light, which will only come by intensive study and actually thinking through on this problem.
____Too many of us are listening to preachers, always listening
and never digesting or doing any original thinking, we are what Jesus called "hearers of the Word and not doers."
____The instant a man or woman thinks through on this problem, that moment he rises into a new
realm of Life in Christ He actually begins to reign in the realm of Life.
____Then he is able to meet demons and diseases on their own plane, and conquer them; able to enjoy the fruits of the Finished Work of
Christ and enter into the riches of His inheritance. Jesus Is In That Name Ile is that Name.
____All He was, all He did, all He is and all that He ever will he is in that Name now. He wrought the healing for its;
He is healing for us now. He satisfied the claims of justice and became our righteousness, He is now our righteousness.
____He passed down through death and up into life, and He is our Life now. He gave us life,
He is that Life He gave. He is healing, He is health, He is victory, He is our all and in all.
