An individual was casting out spirits in Jesus' name (Acts)but was rebuked for it when he was not a believer. In My name means in my authority. NOT just using His name. A prophet that forsees an event then pronounces it as In Jesus' Name has the authority. If I decide I want something or to heal someone simply usurping God's name will not make it happen.

Anything that you ask for from the Father in my name I will give it to you, if right timing, good for you, or the Father's will. AMEN.++

When you think of Him, of what He represents, (love,mercy,forgiveness,etc), and pray in His name, think of who He is... that is one thing I would guess...

"In my name" means in place of, on behalf of. It can only be used by those who are in Christ.

Because demons know Jesus name and tremble. They know who he is. They hear his name being spoken with authority, they flee/scatter. Whatever we ask in Jesus' name, he will do it. But a person must take authority over the situation, over Satan then speak Jesus name. There is power in Jesus name.

God's Name is Holy. It is to be spoken reverently.
The Name of Jesus is meant to bring hope, healing and joy to all people
Jesus ~ Yeshua, God the Savior
Christ ~ Anointed One, Jesus the Messiah, Our Savior
Immanuel ~ God is with us
Master ~ Teacher, Lord, Overseer
Son of God ~ Jesus is the Son of God
Redeemer ~ One who redeems from bondage

The Name of Jesus is one of the weapons of our warfare.
Word of God
Name of Jesus Christ, God
Blood of Jesus Christ
There is power, power, wonder working power, in the Name of the Lord....

Many times we hear people ending prayers with "in Jesus name we pray," as though this were some magic incantation, when in reality, Jesus' words are saying that all we do as Christians is done as ambassadors, or representatives of Him. We are to do all things as though Jesus himself were actually physically present and doing them, being careful that nothing would be an embarassment to Him, keeping ourselves fully in His will.

To SUSIE-- I do not speak Spanish. Maybe know 100 words. I keep a interperor with me at all times. We heard over 100 people ask the LORD JESUS CHRIST to come into their lives and save their souls.-- We frist get a interperor. We then work the parks and streets. The HOLY SPIRIT does His work.Praise the name of the LORD!!!!

There's power in that Name.
The Name of Jesus is authority

If someone does something in your name they are doing it on your behalf, with your permission. In the case of doing something in Jesus name, we are doing it on his behalf as he has given us the permission and the power to do it.

greetings.There is "in the name of honor" and there is "in the name of Jesus'.Many left behind religions will continue in the name of honor where as those progressing will labor in the name of Jesus.

Doing something "in His name", I offer, does NOT mean just saying some pronunciation of His name.
We are in Jesus Christ's name, by being and loving in His own love for ALL people. And in this love we have His personal leading, at every moment so we are guaranteed to succeed at doing whatsoever He really is leading us to do >
"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15)

Php 002:008 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.002:009 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 002:010 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;002:011 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. There is power in name of Jesus!

In the authority of His Name.
I say that because in Mark 16:17 Jesus said, "In My name shall they cast out devils;"
He gave us the authority to cast out demons using His name. The 7-sons of Sceva couldn't because they didn't have the right or authority to use His Name.

Mima...Just curious. Do you speak Spanish?
