“Every day we make choices and every night we must sleep with the consequences of these choices”.
“Every decision we make defines our experience”
One of the most Critical Decisions you Must Make is to Carefully Consider the NAME you BEAR ot the NAMES you give your children.
This May be a Heavy Burden You will BEAR the rest of your life.
Names are a very important part of our daily experience, existence and even relationship with God.
“The Power of Life and Death is in the Tongue”.
“We have what we say”.
“Our Bellies are filled with the fruits of our Lips”.
“FAITH Commeth by hearing….and hearing”….
NAMES are Very Powerful WORDS.
Your World Responds to Your WORDS; LIFE is a World of WORDS.
No WORDS no Life…
Negative WORDS; Negative Life….
Positive WORDS; Positive Life….
IF You and People Keep calling you and you keep answering to a Name which is a Very Powerful IDENTITY WORD, Spoken in FAITH; The MEANING of that Name and the Essence of that Word MUST Manifest.
IF You bear a wrong name … you Colour your World wrongly.
Wikipedia: A name is defined as a WORD or set of WORDS by which a person, animal, place, or thing is known, addressed, referred to….
A NAME IS A WORD THAT BINDS AND DEFINES YOU.
Hence God Changes People’s Names when He Wants to COMPLETELY Change their World !!
Abram to ABRAHAM (Father of Many Nations)
Sarai to SARAH (Woman of High Rank-Princess)
~ Gen 17:5
Saul to PAUL (Humble Servant)
“These New Names CAME TO PASS”
After all a name is a DECLARATION of FAITH.
We Call People by their names as though the meaning is already true.
Jacob was born holding his twin brother Esau’s heel, and his name meant “holder of the heel” or “supplanter.” He lived as a supplanter ALL his life until his name was changed by God, after he spent an exhausting night wrestling with and holding the leg of the angel of God.
In Genesis 32:28 God says “Jacob” would instead be known as “Israel” (“God contended”) “because he struggled with God and men and won; And every battle henceforth he won”
In John 1:42 Jesus changed Simon’s (“God has heard”) name to Peter (“rock” or “stone”).
Again Peter became the Rock that his Brothers Stood upon and God’s Church was Built upon.
