In the name of jesus

  1. 1. IN THE NAME OF JESUS ACTS 19: 1-22
  2. 2. IN THE NAME OF JESUS Whatever Paul did, whatever Paul said, he did it and said it ‘In the Name of Jesus’.
  3. 3. IN THE NAME OF JESUS The Gospel he preached was – ‘Call upon the Name of Jesus’! 1 Corinthians 1:2 Everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13 Whatever you do or say, do it in the Name of Jesus. Colossians 3:17 Peter too: In the Name of Jesus of Nazareth – walk! Acts 3:6 Salvation is found in no other Name. Acts 4:12
  4. 4. BAPTISM OF REPENTANCE VV. 1-7 Only half the story. They didn’t have the full picture. Given the full picture, they responded!
  5. 5. THE GOSPEL IS PREACHED. VV. 8-22 In the local synagogue for three months. In the nearby lecture hall for two years. Verse 10. All the Jews and Greeks heard the Word. Verse 11, 12. God did remarkable things.
  6. 6. THE GOSPEL IS PREACHED. VV. 8-22 In the local synagogue for three months. In the nearby lecture hall for two years. Verse 10. All the Jews and Greeks heard the Word. Verse 11, 12. God did remarkable things. These miracles were seen - not just to bless people – and certainly not just to amaze them – but to authenticate or to validate the Word.
  7. 7. THE SPIRIT AND THE WORD! If we have the Word without the Spirit we dry up. If we have the Spirit without the Word we blow up. If we have the Spirit and the Word we grow up.
  8. 8. IN THE NAME OF JESUS …….. In the Name of Jesus whom Paul preaches I command you to come out! Verses 13. Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you? Verses 15.
  9. 9. IN THE NAME OF JESUS It is not a formula, a magic charm or a spell. Elijah – the God of Israel, whom I serve. (1Kings 17) Before whom I stand. In the service of the Lord. Not in our own name or authority. That which is in line with his character and purposes.
  10. 10. BY WHAT POWER OR WHAT NAME DID YOU DO THIS? IN THE NAME OF JESUS!
