“9 Wherefore God also has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
In Hebrew, His name is Yeshua. In Italian His name is Gesu’ Cristo. In China they call Him Yesu Jidu. In Russia, His name is lisus Khristos. However, I am from the USA and I speak English. For me, His name is Jesus.
God the Father has highly exalted Jesus and given Him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow…..and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. The name that God gave Jesus, which is above every name is Lord – master of all.
For the English-speaking Believer, we call Him Jesus Christ and He is our Lord. The Person of Jesus Christ is Who paid the penalty of our sin and broke the power of sin on Calvary’s Cross. We have accepted Him as our Lord and Saviour because of Who He is and what He has done for whosoever will believe. God has already exalted Jesus as Lord. It is up to us individually whether or not we accept Him as Lord.
Let it be made clear, no matter the different languages, if our Lord is not the Person of Jesus Christ according to the Word of God, THE Person in which God the Father exalted as Lord because of His finished work on the Cross…it is another Jesus and is accursed. Not all paths lead to Jesus and NO MAN comes to the Father except through Jesus (John 14:6). Did you hear that Oprah? NO MAN.
“10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Whom you crucified, Whom God raised from the dead, even by Him does this man stand here before you whole.
11 This is the Stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the Head of the Corner.
12 Neither is there Salvation in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:10-12
Salvation for man was made possible by the person of Jesus Christ, God manifested in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16), Who came to die on Calvary’s Cross to reconcile mankind to our Creator. There is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved – Jesus Christ. No matter the language…is HE, the Son of God according to the Word of God, the One in Whom God has exalted as Lord, your Lord?
“For if he that comes preaches another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if you receive another spirit, which you have not received, or another gospel, which you have not accepted, you might well bear with him.” 2 Corinthians 11:4
