"You must know that I Am and that My Name is above all else and I honor My Word because of My Name's sake.This is the attitude of the Almighty.I Am that I AM and that is a reflection of My Name. You think of a name as an identifying label.My Name is Who I Am."
Understanding the power that is in the Name of God will open a new level of AUTHORITY IN THE SPIRIT!
What is it that I need from you?(Isaiah 66:1-2) You approach Me with fear as to what I will require as if it is grievous. My power is for those who seek Me for my Name's sake.(Psalm 23:3) What do I mean by, "for My Name's sake"?You must know that I Am and that My Name is above all else and I honor My Word because of My Name's sake.This is the attitude of the Almighty.I Am that I AM and that is a reflection of My Name.You think of a name as an identifying label.My Name is Who I Am."In My Name you will cast out devils," (Mark 16:17-18) indicates a position of authority IN My name.You have thought that this means only the use of My Name.It is so much more that that.It is dwelling in My Name.You are asking, "How do I do this?Where do I find that place?"I will tell you.
1.Recognize that obedience to My Name should be the attitude of My children.You represent all that I Am and as such would never think of betraying My Name. (Matthew 18:5; Matthew 5:16; Matthew 6:9; John 14:13-14)
2.Do not take My Name in vain.(Exodus 20:7) This means that you do not use My Name in a context that does not rightly reflect all that I Am.Taking My Name in vain takes the authority of all that I AM from you.How do you take My name in vain:
>Attributing to My Name those things that are not of Me
>Accusing My Name in your words or deeds
>Failing to be obedient to all that I Am—My Character
3.Dwell in unity with My Word."I honor My Word above My Name indicates that all that I Am—as it is reflected in My Word—is supported by all that I Am in My Name.I will explain this to you this way: A building is more visible than the foundation upon which it stands.Therefore the building is above the foundation but is not greater in value although it may appear greater in dimension.Just so My Word is seen by all but it is based upon that that you do not see. (Psalms 138:2-3)
4.Love My Name.I Am is with you in My Name.The Name of Lucifer was changed because that was the name I gave to him—his possession; his position in Me.This is why you have a new name in heavenly places.Your authority in Me is restored and your name is changed from one who has no authority over the enemy to one who shares in the victory of the Christ and is in Him. (Psalms 91:14-16; Psalm 5:11)
5.Allow Me to "brand" you with My Name.As the Christ is formed in you you are being branded as My own.My image again rests upon you.This only comes by your total submission to Me.If you trust Me you will receive the eternal name that I have given you.Without that eternal name you have no place in My Name; no place in me—just as the fallen one. (Revelation 2:17)
God revealed Himself—Who He is—through His names.These Names altogether were pointing to the Christ—the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Isaiah 52:5-7; Isaiah 52:13-15; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:21-23)
So therefore: (Joel 2:28-32; Romans 10:11-13)
Scriptures for Prophetic Lesson on the Power of the Name of God
10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the [consistently] righteous man [upright and in right standing with God] runs into it and is safe, high [above evil] and strong. 11 The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as a high protecting wall in his own imagination and conceit. AMP
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. NKJV (Elohim-Creator Mighty and strong—the ALL)

Exodus 3:13-15 (They had forgotten Him)
13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them?14 And God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM and WHAT I AM, and I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you!15 God said also to Moses, This shall you say to the Israelites: The Lord, the God of your fathers, of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, has sent me to you! This is My name forever, and by this name I am to be remembered to all generations.AMP(I Am self-existent also God of Covenant)
2 And God said to Moses, I am the Lord. 3 I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as God Almighty [El-Shaddai], but by My name the Lord [Yahweh — the redemptive name of God] I did not make Myself known to them [in acts and great miracles]. AMP
1 Kings 8:33-36
33 When Your people Israel are struck down before the enemy because they have sinned against You, and they turn again to You, confess Your name (Your revelation of Yourself), and pray, beseeching You in this house, 34 Then hear in heaven and forgive the sin of Your people Israel and return them to the land You gave to their fathers. 35 When heaven is shut up and no rain falls because they have sinned against You, if they pray in [or toward] this place and confess Your name (Your revelation of Yourself) and turn from their sin when You afflict them, 36 Then hear in heaven and forgive the sin of Your servants, Your people Israel, when You teach them the good way in which they should walk. And give rain upon Your land which You have given to Your people as an inheritance. AMP
Thus says the LORD:
"Heaven is My throne, And earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? 2 For all those things My hand has made, And all those things exist, "Says the LORD. "But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, And who trembles at My word. NKJV

He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name's sake. NKJV
3 He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him — not for my earning it, but] for His name's sake. AMP
Mark 16:17-18 (Because of Who He is)
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover." NKJV

7 "Do not misuse the name of the LORD your God. The LORD will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name. NLT
15 And call on Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall honor and glorify Me. 16 But to the wicked, God says: What right have you to recite My statutes or take My covenant or pledge on your lips,
17 Seeing that you hate instruction and correction and cast My words behind you [discarding them]? 18 When you see a thief, you associate with him, and you have taken part with adulterers. 19 You give your mouth to evil, and your tongue frames deceit. 20 You sit and speak against your brother; you slander your own mother's son. 21 These things you have done and I kept silent; you thought I was once entirely like you. But [now] I will reprove you and put [the charge] in order before your eyes. 22 Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver. 23 He who brings an offering of praise and thanksgiving honors and glorifies Me; and he who orders his way aright [who prepares the way that I may show him], to him I will demonstrate the salvation of God. AMP
2 I will worship toward Your holy temple,
And praise Your name
For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.
3 In the day when I cried out, You answered me,
And made me bold with strength in my soul. NKJV

for your unfailing love and faithfulness,
because your promises are backed
by all the honor of your name. NLT

I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.

And show him My salvation." NKJV

With favor You will surround him as with a shield. NKJV

5 But now what have I here, says the Lord, seeing that My people have been taken away for nothing? Those who rule over them howl [with joy], says the Lord, and My name continually is blasphemed all day long. [Rom 2:24.]6 Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I AM! 7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, Your God reigns! AMP
13 Behold, My Servant shall deal wisely and shall prosper; He shall be exalted and extolled and shall stand very high.14[For many the Servant of God became an object of horror; many were astonished at Him.] His face and His whole appearance were marred more than any man's, and His form beyond that of the sons of men — but just as many were astonished at Him,
15 So shall He startle and sprinkle many nations, and kings shall shut their mouths because of Him; for that which has not been told them shall they see, and that which they have not heard shall they consider and understand.
14 Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign: Behold, the young woman who is unmarried and a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel [God with us]. AMP

AMP
28 "Then after I have poured out my rains again, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams. Your young men will see visions. 29 In those days, I will pour out my Spirit even on servants, men and women alike. 30 "I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth — blood and fire and pillars of smoke. 31 The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon will turn bloodred before that great and terrible day of the LORD arrives. 32 And anyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved. There will be people on MountZion in Jerusalem who escape, just as the LORD has said. These will be among the survivors whom the LORD has called. NLT
11 As the Scriptures tell us, "Anyone who believes in him will not be disappointed." 12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They all have the same Lord, who generously gives his riches to all who ask for them. 13 For "Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." 14 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? 15 And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" NLT
