The Name above all names!

Mat 1:21  And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”

Mat 1:22  So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:

Mat 1:23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a son, and they shall call HIS NAME EMMANUEL,” which is translated, “God with us.”

This is a wonderful time and season of the year where families and friends get together and there is much fellowship. People are so joyful and excited, gifts are exchanged and given, but we must never forget that the greatest gift ever given to mankind was Jesus Christ, which the name above all names! 

For many of us, Jesus is the reason for all seasons because he is Christ. In the Hebrew translation he is Yeshua Ha ’Mashiach, and there are some that just refer to him as LORD!

Whatever name you know him as, we must always remember that he is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and his name is above all names!

Isaiah the prophet prophesied in Isaiah 9:6, “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Before Jesus came on the scene, the Prophet Isaiah prophesied that a child would be born and the government would be upon his shoulder, and his name would be called five interesting things which are so profound, and they are: Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace!

These are indeed beautiful names which are representative of who Christ is, and I am sure that someone under the sound of my voice can testify that God has been many of these things in their lives!

In the book of Matthew, Christ birth is foretold by the angel Gabriel, and they are told that his name shall be called Jesus or in the Hebrew; Yehoshua or Yeshua which means Jehovah or Yehovah saves. (Yahweh saves).

Is this not what Christ came to do? To seek and to save that which is lost?

Mat 1:21  And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins.”

Mat 1:22  So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying:


The scripture alao says that he would also be called Emmanuel, which means God with us!

This is so profound because the scripture says in John 1:14, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Jesus came into this earth realm to dwell with us, save us, commune with us, and to restore us back to the Father!

John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Joh 3:17  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

This scripture says it all, but I am reminded of the words that Jesus asked his disciples in Matt 16, which is so profound!

Mat 16:13  When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

Mat 16:14  So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

Mat 16:15  He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”

Mat 16:16  Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Mat 16:17  Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

This is so powerful, because today the LORD is asking these same two questions! Who do men say that I am, and who do you say I am?

You see, when Christ walked the earth, there were a lot of names that people said he was, but the question remains to each and every person reading today. Who do you say that Christ is?

Was he just a good teacher in the Bible that God used mightily? Is he just another prophet among many that God sent? Was he just a Rabbi, or a good holy man?  No! He was the Christ, Messiah, the Son of the living God! 

His name is indeed name above all names!  Listen, there are a lot of famous names today in the world, and all of them may have some significance, but understand there is only one name that is name above all names, and that is the name of Jesus Christ! (Yeshua Ha Mashiach) who is LORD of Lords and KING of Kings!

Peter, who became an Apostle testified of that name after he received the revelation in Matthew chapter 16. He then told the people the following after healing a man in the name of Jesus:

Act 4:7  And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, “By what power or by what name have you done this?” 

Act 4:8  Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders of Israel: 

Act 4:9  If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man, by what means he has been made well, 

Act 4:10  let it be known to 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, by Him this man stands here before you whole. 

Act 4:11 This is the stone which the builders rejected, which has become the Chief Cornerstone.” 

Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 

As we celebrate the holidays, stand strong in the name of Jesus Christ, lift up the name of Jesus, give in the name of Jesus and let us never forget, he is the greatest gift that could ever be given or received!

God bless, Pastor Quinn
