Did you know that Jesus wasn’t his name? I knew a boy in school, his name was Jesus. So forgive me if I have a dilemma here. If I pray in Jesus’ name, will it mean anything? I understand that the politically correct name used to refer to the Son of God is Jesus, but hey that wasn’t his name. Even his earthly name was not Jesus. It was Yeshua or Joshua, but not Jesus. One thing I do agree with though is, he is the Christ or as he said, you say that I am.
I would refer you to an earlier article of mine on this blog, pray in the nature of the God you worship. It just works better than using the same old stuff introduced centuries ago by someone trying to control the masses.
We don’t pray in God’s earthly name and we don’t truly know his heavenly name, so what are we to do? Pray.
So what went wrong, people went wrong? Let’s start getting it right. The truth is, God is a kind God and will hear you even if you use the wrong name. So, I guess he must understand what he is working with.
I know this is going to piss off many of you and the Pope, but If I cared about that I wouldn’t have written this. I do care that we say we are the servants of God, but may have no idea what that entails. We have a tendency to be devoted to an idea instead of a person.
Perhaps, I hope for too much, but why not look to the heavens. I find that there is a lot of false stuff fed to us by the establishment as the status quo.
What happened to doing your own research? I don’t care if you don’t agree with me, I understand. Now go prove what you believe is true.
P.S. You can pray in any name you like, as can everyone else. If we learn the nature of God even in bits and pieces and ask for that nature to be given to us, we will be praying in the manner we are intended to.
