The Name of the Lord

The Name of the Lord, firm and strong like a tower
Draws multitudes lost, and redeemed are empowered.
This Name is so matchless, it’s found without stain,
Yet the world disregards this and takes it in vain.

This Name above all names, the name of our Lord
Holds life that was purchased through what He endured.
Now saints who for Jesus faithfully labored
Have inscribed on their foreheads the Name of their Savior.

However, beware, for in days soon to come
False prophets will claim that they are God’s Son.
This will mislead and deceive many crowds
While the eyes of God’s people are trained on the clouds.

Those found ashamed of the Son and His Name
Thus before God will the Lord do the same.
If you love Him enough and you know Whom you serve
Then why be ashamed to speak forth His Word?

-- C.V., 15 years old
Scriptural Basis:
The Scriptural basis for my daughter's poem is found in the following verses:

“But these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.” (Joh 20:31)

“This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.” (1Jn 3:23) 

“For whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (Rom 10:13)

"There will no longer be any curse; and the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and His bond-servants will serve Him; they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads." (Rev 22:3-4)

"And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."  (Act 4:12) 

"For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many." (Mat 24:5)

I also invite you to read the following two blogs of mine for more about the powerful name of Jesus.  The Name of Jesus and Jesus is Yahweh.

Now I'd like to ask a very important question.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"
