True Story: When my son was about 10 months old he woke up about 2:00 am w/ a small rash on his neck. It was just one of those things that happen to babies but as for a new father, ‘I was scared.’ Momma couldn’t calm him & she started to get scared and was ready to take him to the hospital.
I took my son into the living room; I wet his neck with some cool bath rag and dry it. He was still crying, so I did the only thing I knew how to do when I get sacred; I prayed. “Lord God, please help me. My little man is troubled by something and I don’t understand why the rash is there. His Momma is ready to the hospital but I coming to you first. Your Word said You will move for the righteous that are in Your Son’s name. Please hear the prayer of this father, Holy Father. This is my only begotten; I place him at Your Feet for healing. In the name of Jesus, Amen.”(No that was not word for word but you get the jest.).
Then I started to sing. I can’t explain why but all I knew was I had one thing on my mind, that was the Lord Jesus and His Healing Power. The song I started to sing was ‘Something About The Name Jesus’ by Kirk Franklin & Rance Allen Group. Now I can’t sing like Brother Rance and at the time I didn’t know all the words so I just kept singing the chorus; Something about the name Jesus, it is the sweetest name I know. Oh how love the name Jesus; it is the sweetest name I know.”
I just kept singing it. AJ was crying, I was holding him tight in my arms and singing over and over and over and over and over. Then AJ wasn’t crying but I was still singing. I saw AJ was sleep and at rest, his little neck was healed. But I couldn’t stop singing.
Now you can call me crazy but I know that I know that I know that the Holy Spirit was in my living room; He healed my son, comforted me and made His Presence known. I call on the name of Jesus and the Creator of All came into our little one bedroom apartment & did what He said He would do, ‘If you ask anything of the Father in My name, I will do.’
Now I’ve told that story inside of many discussions on the correct way we should the name of Jesus. And the only thing I am asked is to explain to me why the Lord moved on my account if I said His name wrong? And what does this have to do with Salvation & Sanctification? Why do we play God like he doesn’t know our heart? You say Yahshua and I say Jesus but we are both talking about the Lamb of God, right?
