There are Unlimited Benefits and Blessings in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ
Dr. Rocco Badenhorst
Before we get into discussing the benefits in the name of Jesus; His Name is the greatest gift to humanity. The Word says in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." We see that we have the gift of eternal life in the Name of Jesus. Many verses in the Bible teaches about the gift of everlasting life in the Name of Jesus.
Physical healing for the sick is also taught in the word of God; as found in Psalm 103:2-3 "Bless the Lord O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases."
The two greatest needs of humanity is Spiritual and physical healing. It is manifested in our lives when we call on the Name of Jesus that is much greater then any other name; for there is no name to compare with His Name. Many people do not receive the fullness of his blessings, because they do not pray as the Bible teaches. The Word teaches us that whatever we shall ask the Father in the Name of Jesus, it will be done unto us.
1. What is in a name?

The name Moses means, "drawn out." He was found in the bulrushes when he was a baby.
Naomi means "pleasant."
Peter means "little rock."
The Name of JESUS in Isaiah 9: 6 gives us a clear description "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace."
Charles J. Rolls in his series of books on the Names of Jesus uses the alphabet to describe all the names of Jesus. I do not think there are enough books in the world to do justice to the wonderful Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The following are a few of the Names of Jesus taken from Charles J Rolls' book.
A. Alpha and Omega, Ancient of Days.
B. Bright and Morning Star,
C. Creator of all things
D. Door of the sheep.
F. Faithful One
G Gift of God
H. Holy One
I. I Am
The title, I Am, says a lot about the Name of Jesus. Whatever our need is, Jesus says, I AM. Jesus' Name, I AM in front of the need becomes the answer.
In humanity's lost condition, Jesus says, I AM your Savior.
In humanity's sick condition, Jesus says, I AM your healer.
To the lonely, Jesus says, I AM your comfort.
To those who are suffering lack, Jesus says, I AM your provider.
To those who are sad, Jesus says, I AM your joy.
2. A new or second name is given to a person, where there is a change in the situation of that person. For example.
