Genesis 12:1-2 (Now the LORD had said unto Abram, get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing). Before God gave Abraham blessings He dealt with his name.
Proverbs 22:1 reads (A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, And loving favour rather than silver and gold). Once your name gets to where God wants it to be, then other things will easily come. Men of distinction are men who held on to the word of God and understood the mystery of names. Revelation 21:9-14 (And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; and had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: on the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb).
Your name is connected to four (4) things:
Understand that you can be on the other side of life because of the name you carry. Genesis 32:28 (And he said, thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
Genesis 32:28). Jacob had a generational blessing from Abraham (from the lineage). Isaac also blesses before he died. The angel understood what a blessing is.
Exodus 3:11-16 (And Moses said unto God, who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt? And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain. And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, what is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. And God said moreover unto Moses, thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt). From this scripture we perceive that God has sealed forever that His name is I AM. Until you ask God to sanctify your name, your access is limited. In the spirit names move other spirits and dimensions. In the spirit once you are asked your name access, identity, authority and assignment is being checked.
There is a name higher above all names (Jesus). Life is about names. Do not joke with names. Names are powerful. Luke 10:20 (Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven).
Whenever God wants to do something through you, God will work through and alter your name. Names of the Bible books are connected to the name of God. For example, Israel, Ezekiel, Raphael. When the blessings of God begin to manifest, impact is inevitable.
