"From whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name (God—the first and ultimate Father)" Ephesians 3:15.
This is so interesting: “Therefore God has highly exalted Him and has freely bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, That in the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, And every tongue confesses and acknowledges that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:9-11) Another exciting word is in Luke 10:20b, The Lord Jesus Christ Himself tells us that our names are written in Heaven. This is specifically for the children of God. It is for those who have accepted Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Saviour. It is for the born again children of God and the one who is living in accordance with the will of God.
When we place our faith in Christ, God becomes our Father, we become his children, other believers become our brothers and sisters, and the church becomes our spiritual family: Jesus pointed to his disciples and said, “These are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother!” (Matthew 12:49-50). In Heaven, there is a special book where the names of God's children are written. This is called the book of life (Revelation 21:27, 3:5). This makes you a member of God's family!
In Philippians 2:9-11, it is established that the name of Jesus Christ is the highest, the greatest and the most powerful such that at the mention of His name, everyone is expected to bow. This confirms that Jesus Christ is the family name. As a child of God or a member of this family, your surname or family name is Jesus Christ. The same way you enjoy your biological family name, you should also enjoy your spiritual family name. I am not asking you to change the names on your documents! It is a spiritual thing! As a member of God's family, you have Jesus Christ as surname! Hallelujah!!!
Look at this: if your father is the governor of your state, your family name would make ways for you! How much more the most powerful family name! As a member of this family, you are entitled to so many Angels. They would, guard, guide and protect you. They will work for you. They will serve you. Anything that concerns you concerns your family. You are not alone.
On earth, you are representing your family as an Ambassador! All the things you need are supplied from your family (Heaven). Remember, there is nothing like economic crises or lack in Heaven. The economy is stable! All your needs are provided at the best time! You are so important to God! You do not need to fear the demons, principalities and powers. As a member of God's family, you bear the mark of Jesus Christ. Any where you enter, the devil and his agents will surely recognize you! They will never hurt you. They will see the great armies surrounding you. You are untouchable! You carry fire!
In furtherance, any where your name appears, the name of Jesus Christ appears! Any where they are gathering against you, they will surely scatter because of the name. Any where they present your name, be it in the coven, kingdoms or native doctors’ places, Jesus will answer them. His name is involved! Wow! How can a witch or wizard try Jesus? He will answer by fire! Favour, blessings and miracles are your portion because of your family name. Your business will bear great fruits because Jesus is involved! You will be selected among millions for the job, marriage or contract! Your family name rings a bell!
I encourage you to join this family of God! Simply give your life to Jesus Christ and join a Bible believing Church close to you. Your life will move from story to glory; from mockery to miracles! Things will surely change for good! Your biological family covenants and curses will be broken! Above all, you will be rapturable and when your time on earth expires, you will return to Heaven, your glorious, lovely and wonderful home!
