What Is Your Name? 5
Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following;… This is the disciple which testifieth of these things, and wrote these things: and we know that his testimony is true.” John 21:20a, 24.
The disciple who is being referred to above is John. The name John means Jehovah or Yahweh is gracious. Grace is an expression of the love of God. If you read the book of John you will find out that he is called the disciple whom Jesus loved. He wrote 1 John; an epistle on love. He also wrote the book of Revelation.
What is your name? If your name is James, it is the Greek for the Hebrew name Jacob, it means a deceiver, a supplanter, etc. Could that be the reason why in families where they are called James there is always such problems?
Don’t just answer a name because it sounds fine, go and find out the meaning and the root of the name. Do you know that Jesus changed Simon’s name to Peter? Simon means a reed, unstable. Peter means a rock. He needed that name to be changed to fulfil his destiny. (See John 1:40-42)
What is your name? You may need to change your name so that you can fulfil your prophetic destiny. Now that you know, the onus is on you to find out from God what name you should bear and He will give you a new name.
Please read 1 Corinthians 16:9 and 1 Thessalonians 2:18 and bind all forms of hindering spirit arrayed against you, your business or ministry.
For further study, read:
John 13:23, John 19:26, John 20:2, John 21:7, 20, 24.
Doing the Word.
If you have a name with a negative meaning, change it. Also, if your name has a Blessed meaning, do not be ashamed to declare the revelation of your name over your life in times of difficulties and challenges.
