AT THE MENTION OF HIS NAME

gift-habeshaw-453482.jpgMatt. 1:21-23 – She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).

The prophecies of the birth of Jesus are astounding. Those Christmas prophecies were mightily used by the Lord to build my faith as a young Christian. I was stunned by the revelation of His humanity and deity to the prophets hundreds of years before the birth of Christ. In today’s verse we have a word from an angel to call His Name Jesus. Then we have a commentary from Matthew on Isaiah’s prophesy. Matthew said that Isaiah’s prophesy about Immanuel was actually declaring the deity of this one born of a virgin. The name of Jesus was a fulfillment of that prophesy, Jesus would actually be God with us. Jesus is our Immanuel. Here are the words to a song from Bethel called AT THE MENTION OF YOUR NAME. From the first time His Name was uttered by the angel up until the present day when we call His Name, God is with us. Enjoy the song.

You’re here with the grace of the Savior

With the heart of the Father

You’re all we need

You’re here with the hands of the Healer

With the power of Your Spirit

You’re all we need

At the mention of Your name

Every chain will break

I know everything will change

Jesus, just the whisper of Your name

Will silence wind and waves

At the mention of Your name

You’re here, You’re the Provider

All I’ve ever needed

Jesus, You supply

You’re here, with wonder-working power

Everything You breathe on

Coming back to life

You are my strength

You are my anchor

And You never fail

You are my hope

You will deliver

Emmanuel

At the mention of Your name

Every chain will break

I know everything will change

Jesus, just the whisper of Your name

Will silence wind and waves

At the mention of Your name

Just the mention, Oh

Just the whisper, Oh

You’re just a breath away

You’re just a breath away

So whatever you are facing today just call out His Name. Everything changes at the mention of His Name.

  1. As I’m reminded of the Lord’s promises and healing touch, I really look forward to reading my daily blog. Yes, I say “my” because I am part of a flock, I am a sheep upon many who enjoys and looks forward to my pastor waking up at the crack of dawn to spread the messages of hope and salvation.
