Jesus is Lord. Yes, that is right; we said that Jesus is Lord. Scripture tells us that there is power in the name of Jesus.
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things (those) in heaven, and things in (those on) earth, and things (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).
We see that when God raised Jesus up to the heights of heaven, he highly exalted him and gave him a name that is above every other name. God gave him a name that at his name that every knee, the knee of those in heaven, the knee of those on the earth, and the knee of those under the earth would bow. God gave him a name that every tongue would confess, acknowledging that Jesus the Christ is Lord to the glory of the Father. Basically, God bestowed a name to him that at the mere mention of the name Jesus, every knee, no matter where that knee may be, would bow and every tongue would confess that Jesus is Lord, all to the glory of God the Father.
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9 NIV).
For those who want to be saved, they must confess, “Jesus is Lord,” while believing in their heart, that God raise him from the dead. Isn’t it interesting that your salvation is connected to your acknowledgement that “Jesus is Lord.”
“I pray that you will begin to understand how incredibly great his power is to help those who believe him. It is that same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in heaven, far, far above any other king or ruler or dictator or leader. Yes, his honor is far more glorious than that of anyone else either in this world or in the world to come. And God has put all things under his feet and made him the supreme Head of the Church—which is his body, filled with himself, the Author and Giver of everything everywhere” (Ephesians 1:19-23 TLB).
God has placed Jesus in a position of the highest honor, at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far over all rule, authority, and power as well as above every name that can be named, not only in the present world, but also in the world to come. God has placed all things under his feet and has made him the head of the Church, which is his body.
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matthew 28:18).
All power in heaven and in the earth has been given to Jesus, because “Jesus is Lord.” Yes, that is right, we said it once and we are saying it again, “Jesus is Lord.”
