The Name of the Messiah is a covenant:
a bond… THE bond between GOD and (hu)man(ity). An IOU I-WILL-COME-BACK-FOR-YOU NOTE that has been the long standing promise. The Name of the Messiah is a promise, an end to the course of actions spanning through history, and in every story of every living and breathing member of creation.
The Name of the Messiah is a prophecy, it is an expectation. It not only gives a promise, it tells how that promise would be fulfilled. It not only gives a course of actions, it reveals why those actions must be undertaken.
The Name of the Messiah is an identity. It is by this name that we know who the Messiah is: that HE would save us from our sin(s), that HE would deliver us from ourselves, that HE would help us out of our worst instincts that HE would show us the light in our deepest groaning with darkness.
The Name of the Messiah is an office: a wonderful mashup of excellence – of wisdom, of power, of counsel, of knowledge, of good judgement, of sound doctrine, of loving rebuke or constructing reproof, of grace, of truth, of power to the CONSCIENCE. The name of the Messiah is the spring of hope. To some, it is more than a name, I’ll say, so they have no shame to call it out in the time of need to do so. The Name of the Messiah is a watchtower, calling all lost ships of souls to a relationship with the FATHER who is not only Fort but the
Island High Land above seas of torment.
The name of the Messiah is salvation, deliverance and refuge.
The Name of the Messiah is the standard. Think of the name as the encapsulating order of a being. Think of the name as addressing who a person is. think of the name as the determinant to the result of how an individual ends and where they do end. Think of the name as the catalyst of what shall be orchestrated. Think of the name as the standard of life and living. The name of the Messiah is the standard of life. By this name, there is life, there is freedom in life, there is right to the freedom in life.
The Name of the Messiah is the authority. The Authority for salvation, the authority of deliverance, the authority of brokenness unto repentance which is the newness of life. This name is the highest of all, being the very one which has paid all debts and sanctioned the path to eternity, forever.
The Name of the Messiah is the name of GOD. The name of the Messiah is JESUS CHRIST.
