Seven Times the Bible Says “In His Name”
#202 Seven Times the Bible Says, “In His Name”
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number two-hundred-two of this series, Seven Times the Bible Says, “In His Name”.
Seven times and seven times only the ESV version of the Bible has the phrase “in His name”. Once in the Old Testament and six times in the New Testament. There are many other references to the name of Jesus Christ, but only seven with this phrase. In the time of Jesus, a name was a representation of what the parents hoped their child would be as a person. Here are a few facts about the name of Jesus Christ.
The name Jesus means “Savior”, and Christ means the Messiah.
Mt 1:21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
Jesus has a name above every name.
Php 2:9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name
Seven Times the Bible Says, “In His Name”:
- In His name, Christians walk in faith.
- In His name, Gentiles hope in the resurrection.
- In His name, forgiveness is proclaimed.
- In His name, Christians become children of God.
- In His name, many will believe.
- In His name, Christians have eternal life.
- In His name, there is healing by faith.
There is no salvation in no other name under heaven.
Ac 4:12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
Zec 10:12 I will make them strong in the Lord, and they shall walk in his name,” declares the Lord.
Mt 12:21 and in his name the Gentiles will hope.”
Lk 24:47 and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
Jn 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God…
Jn 2:23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he was doing.
Jn 20:31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
Ac 3:16 And his name—by faith in his name—has made this man strong whom you see and know, and the faith that is through Jesus has given the man this perfect health in the presence of you all.
