Today's "Faith Food" by Kenneth E. Hagin is a simple and yet very profound look at the Name of JESUS! 

By Inheritance

God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. (Hebrews 1:1-4)

We cannot measure the vastness of the power and authority in the Name of Jesus without realizing that He inherited that Name from God the Creator.

Jesus is the brightness of God's glory.

Jesus is the express image of God's Person - the very outshining of God the Father. Jesus is the heir of all things. And Jesus inherited His Name. The greatness of His Name is inherited from His Father. So the power of His Name can only be measured by the power of God.

And every believer has inherited the legal right to use the Name of Jesus!

Confession: I know the Name of Jesus has within it the power and authority of the Creator! I know the power in the Name of Jesus can be measured only by the power of God. And I know I have a legal right to use that Name! 

One of my favorite Old Testament verses is found in Psalm 138:2:

I will worship toward Your holy temple and praise Your name for Your loving-kindness and for Your truth and faithfulness; for You have exalted above all else Your name and Your word and You have magnified Your word above all Your name!

We see in Hebrews, above, that our God upholds ALL THINGS by the WORD OF HIS POWER! JESUS has been given the NAME that is above every name that is named! It is the WORD of God's power that has given that NAME! And HE has given US (every born again believer) the right to use that NAME as though it is our own, and it IS! We are called by HIS NAME! AMEN!

Shalom in Him!
