Psalm 57

Have mercy on me, God;

have mercy on me because I have taken refuge in you.
I take refuge  in the shadow of your wings
until destruction passes by.

I call out to God Most High—
to God, who comes through for me.
3 He sends orders from heaven and saves me,
rebukes the one who tramples me.
God sends his loyal love and faithfulness. I will give thanks to you,
my Lord, among all the peoples;
I will make music to you among the nations
10     because your faithful love
is as high as heaven;
your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
11 Exalt yourself, God, higher than heaven!
Let your glory be over all the earth!

Epheses 1:19-23

19 and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might

20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,

21 far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

22 And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church,

23 which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.

All texts in the bible that use the name Jesus are also meant to be the body, that is the church, we, who are his followers. Tu us is given the power to take action in His name. We are told to work against the bad to help infirm persons.

Everything that Jesus gave to us is included in His name. Everything  – all his achievements – his work on earth – his inheritance – are in His name! This name belongs also to him as to his followers, his corps. All the endeavour he made, he made for his church: belongs to You and to me. In it lies the plenitude of his divinity.

We have the obligation to use His name against the Satan, the enemy. We have the liberty to speake his name in our prayer, in worshipping and singing to Him.


Mark 3:13-19

13 And he went up on the mountain and called to him those whom he desired, and they came to him.

14 And he appointed twelve (whom he also named apostles) so that they might be with him and he might send them out to preach

15 and have authority to cast out demons.

16 He appointed the twelve: Simon (to whom he gave the name Peter);

17 James the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James (to whom he gave the name Boanerges, that is, Sons of Thunder);

18 Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Zealot, 19 and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.
