Matthew 1:21, New King James Bible

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

One question I have for those who I minister to is, “Do you know the meaning of your name?” Quite a few people are able to answer that question, and this is an important thing to know.


The names of both my son and I, which God revealed to me, each have His prophetic meaning. He also uses names to define our identity and our future which is built on Him. Hear what’s the Word says in this matter:


“… I have called you by name, you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1, ESV)


“… for you have found favor in my sight, and I know you by name.” (Exodus 33:17, ESV)


“…you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow…” (Isaiah 62:1, NIV)


Abraham, Israel, Peter, and others were each given a new name by the Lord. The names that He gave to them all have a great prophetic meaning. A father of a nation, a nation and a community of nations, and the rock of His church.


Each and every name God has given including your name. The angel who delivered the Lord’s message to Joseph said, “’She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.’ All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: ‘The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’ (which means ‘God with us’)”. (Matthew 1:21-22, NIV)

Jesus, the Son, who the Father named Yeshua, was an act of declaration. His name contains the truth – the Lord saves. He is salvation; He came to rescue and to deliver. “There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12, NLT) When we speak of the name of Jesus, there is power, and that power brings forth life! Abundant and everlasting life!


Therefore, “You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.” (Exodus 20:7, NKJV)


In closing, we must remember that we are called to hold fast, “Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11, NKJV)
