8/1/2021 Jesus’s Name and Our Names ~Rev. Benjamin Chung

Luke 10:17-20 (ESV) The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!" 18 And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you. 20 Nevertheless, do not

rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven."

Our Lord Jesus is indeed Lord over ALL. He has power and dominion over all creation in heaven and hell. And when Jesus sent the 72 to minister to the people in the area, they did see the demons respond when the name of Jesus was declared! As believers, baptized by the Holy Spirit, we also have the authority to call upon the name of Jesus for miracles to be done. I encourage you to do so with wisdom and discernment. Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill you so that He can direct and guide you.

In fact, LoveSF is preparing a “March for Jesus” on September 18 in SF. There, we will proclaim the name of Jesus above all else! Even now, missionaries have been downtown ministering to the drug addicts and possessed. People have been turning to the LORD. Lives, physically and spiritually, are being saved and won. And this is because they have been declaring the name of Jesus and praying for healing. We can participate as well. We can ask the LORD for protection and to overcome the fear that can cause us to resist the opportunity to minister to those who have been afflicted by Satan. Let us not waiver but be bold! In fact, an Indian Pastor I know sent me this message recently, “Covid 19 could be all around you, but not touch you! That’s how powerful God is!! Ask Daniel in the Lion’s Den. AMEN”. This is certainly true. When our God is with us, nothing can stand in our way. Jesus does save.

To further reinforce this important Christian truth, Jesus taught the disciples to know and “rejoice that their names are written in heaven”. Did you know that your name is written in heaven, because you are a follower of Christ? Let us not get it backwards. Jesus’s name is not a magic phrase like, “Open Sesame.” We are the Lord’s first. Hallelujah! Knowing we are His children with our names written in heaven, let us then go forth and declare His name and His goodness. And then, the miraculous will be done. Praise the LORD, who is most worthy of praise!

作為信徒,我們被神呼召來講述真理、尋求真理和實踐真理。畢竟,耶穌說:「你們必曉得真理,真理必叫你們得以自由。」(約翰福音 8:32)。但誰才是真理?答案就是耶穌。在約翰福音 14 章 6 節,「耶穌說我就是道路、真理、生命;若不藉著我,沒有人能到父那裡去。」耶穌在每一方面都是真理的代表和化身。因為耶穌就是真理,祂也向我們實淺了如何尋求、講述和實踐真理的榜樣。 在寫給歌羅西教會的信中,保羅和提摩太熱

主耶穌在馬太福音 5:23-24節說:「所以,你在祭壇上獻禮物的時候,若想起弟兄向你懷怨,就把禮物留在壇前,先去同弟兄和好,然後來獻禮物。」換言之與人和睦相處比在教會事奉或敬拜奉獻更為重要。但是,如果我們的「鄰舍」真的對我們有意見,而我們認為是不合情理、怎麼辦呢?我們採取解決分歧之前,會忍讓到什麼程度呢? 在三日前的會員大會中,有一位弟兄提起馬太福音 18章,15-17 節是說:「倘若你的弟兄得罪
