The Family Altar
35 Every man, today, knows that he can take the Name of Jesus Christ and meet any foe at any place, any time, and he will be defeated. I’ve met witch-doctors. I’ve met demons of all sorts and never seen a time but what they’d bow to the Name of Jesus Christ. Tell you, friends, when the Church lost the Name and the power of the Name of Jesus Christ, they lost it. When they went down…When Moses went down to Egypt, if they could ever got that stick out of his hand, they had him whipped. But in that stick was where the power laid. If they ever got the stick out of his hand, they had him whipped. Remember, it was the stick that smote the rock. It was the stick that they held to the air. It was the stick that held over the waters. It was God’s judgment rod. And what—what the stick was in Moses’ hand, the Name of Jesus Christ is to the borned again Church. Amen. Get it away from there, and it’s gone. Yes, sir.
Oh, that Name, take the Name of Jesus with you, child of sorrow and of woe. When temptations around you, breathe that Holy Name in prayer. Watch demons scatter. Yes, sir. The Name of Jesus Christ…
David said, “You meet me as a Philistine, with an armor and spear but I meet you in the Name of the Lord God of Israel.” Watch. He had five stones. He had five fingers, the sling wrapped in: J-E-S-U-S, F-A-I-T-H, faith in Jesus. Here he comes. Something has to happen. I tell you, when he turned that stone loose, the Spirit of God caught into that stone and slew Goliath. Cut his head off, and all the others weakened down. And the armies of Israel took courage and they cut Philistines plumb to the walls. That’s what it means tonight: somebody who’s got an experience to stand up and to prove the power of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The rest of them will take courage and here they’ll come. Some of you on cots, wheelchairs, try it once and watch the group follow you. Take courage. Go on.
