How To Pray-Part 7

June 9, 2015

 

Because of who Jesus is and because of what Jesus has done, when a man, woman, boy, or girl comes to that point in their life that they realize they are a sinner and they are separated from God and then they believe and they pray to the Father through the name of Jesus Christ and by the Holy Spirit, the Bible says that they are born again, they are born from above. From then on they can pray in the name of Jesus because they have now entered into a relationship with God and they now have an account in heaven.  Listen, by faith for all eternity you can write checks on that account in heaven. You can write checks on the name of Jesus. Why? Because God now sees you totally identified with Him in His death, burial, resurrection. Amen! You’ve been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. So, when you pray to the Father and you pray in the name of Jesus, what you are saying is that I am praying through the blood of Jesus Christ. This is my only way to heaven and it is my only way to communicate with God. This is why we can have complete assurance that it is not though Mother Mary, it is not through the Pope, it is through Jesus.
