The Name Jesus A name is important, Adam's first assignment was to give a name to things. A name means mark, identity or reputation. The name of Jesus Christ Is different from any other name. Even if infants (pwere) call his name something happens ! There is power in the name of Jesus. When our names are called nothing happens! The Jesus that was born to Mary is different from the Jesus that rose from the dead (grave)...this is the same Jesus but its influence has been increased...but its the same name .... ref: Philippians 2:5-11 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. For example,The same me that you used to know when I was a baby is different from the one you know now “ when I used poop in my pants...aita futi!” “H akuna anoita zita rumwe!” meaning... “nobody has the same name. The name changes its meaning through experience...e.g. When a Head of State is called , we all know that someone important was called..he/she bares the same name but its the same John/Sandy but he or she now has influence through experience, different from when he/she was a child. Ref: ACTS 4: 15-18 So they ordered them to withdraw from the Sanhedrin and then conferred together. 16 “What are we going to do with these men?” they asked. “Everyone living in Jerusalem knows they have performed a notable sign, and we cannot deny it. 17 But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them to speak no longer to anyone in this name. 18 Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. So the the rulers, the elders and the teachers of the law were ok if the discples preached in any other name except the name Jesus. You must develop the Christ in you...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
