For this month’s prophetical service Pastor Paul Dawson has shared from Isaiah 52:6. God says that His people shall know His name. This revelation of who God is, sets His people on high. Nothing can shake a believer who knows these truths. Listen to this short, inspiring Word and claim it for your life.
KNOWING GOD’S NAME
The time is come to ponder anew. The promise for the month is Isaiah 52:6, “Therefore My people shall know My name.” The month of July is always an amazing month. It is a month when the Lord does amazing things.
My people and My name are both important phrases in this verse. It is very interesting as ‘My’ is used for both. ‘My’ refers to proprietary rights, like how we refer to family. Something will happen to ‘My people’ only. Ponder anew what His love can do if His love befriends you. Think anew.
God wants to do something for His people whom He calls as My people. What will He do? They shall know. Only these people will know, not everybody. Why is that so? Because He causes them to know. If God does not cause you to know, you cannot know. You think you came to know by yourself? If He doesn’t cause you to know, there is no way you can know.
Firstly, God is going to make us know His name. The meaning of ‘know’ is revelation. In Psalm 36:9 we read, “For with Thee is the fountain of life: in Thy light shall we see light.” In Exodus 6:2-3, “And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by My name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.” God is saying that even Abraham, Isaac and Jacob did not know His name as Jehovah. Why? Because it didn’t please God to reveal Himself as Jehovah at that time. He wanted them to know Him as God Almighty. In Genesis 17:1 we see, “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before Me, and be thou perfect.” He gave Abraham the revelation that He is Almighty God but He didn’t reveal Himself as Jehovah to him.
What I am trying to tell you is that if God doesn’t reveal His name to you, you cannot know it. Why does He make us know His name? There is so much to know about what happens when you know the name of God. We must ponder anew. However, today I am going to teach you only one thing that the Holy Spirit placed in my heart. What is the power of a man who knows God’s name?
Psalm 91:14 reveals this to us, “Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known My name.” God says He will do something. The will of God is evident here. He says very precisely, “I will”. He is very specific for whom He will do this. In 1 Chronicles 29:12 we read, “Both riches and honour come of Thee, and Thou reignest over all; and in Thine hand is power and might; and in Thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
He can make anyone great. Anyone. In His hand is power and might. He can make anyone great. When God says, “I will”, can any power stop Him from doing what He has planned? “I will set him on high,” says the Lord. If God says, “I will set David on high”, irrespective of whether he is born to a beggar or a third-generation sweeper’s family, God will lift him.
When God has spoken, and the Lion has roared, no one can stop him. When God speaks, no one can stop him. Everything will work in such a person’s favour because God is setting him on high. Sometimes the king also will not sleep because this person has to be set on high. If Mordecai has to humiliate Haman and be lifted up, then the king cannot sleep. If Joseph has to be lifted, the Pharoah must have a dream. If Daniel has to be lifted up, Nebuchadnezzar must be sleepless and he will make everyone irritated. This is all because God wants to set Daniel on high. Ponder anew.
First you get humility. Do you think you are believing because you think you are smart? No, He makes you to believe. I will set him on high because he has known My name. If someone has to be set up on high, he has to know God’s name. God says in Isaiah 52:6 says that God Himself will make you to know His name. How will you know His name? After you know His name, He will set you on high. My people will know my name is God’s Word. Both of which He executes. Ponder anew what His love can do when He befriends you
Child of God, this month is an amazing promise. I am surrounded by power. You are also surrounded by power. There is anointing on my head. There is anointing on your head. Left, right, up and down, the devil is working but he cannot do anything to you. The devil is working. 50 kms away. Why? Because you know the name of God. The devil has to be working 10 kms away or 1 km away or maybe in your house or in your body, I don’t know where. Yet somewhere he is working. Let him work. Judgement has been passed on him and he has been allowed to roam free. God has left him to roam but the promise for you is, “My people shall know My name.” Don’t forget that and let us ponder anew.
