THE NAME IS AN OFFICE

There is this kingdom of ten colonies. It has a very powerful king who rules from a very big and elegant palace. Everyone in that kingdom knows the power of the king and the strength of his army. There were certainly people that do not like the king, his enemies, and they from time to time try to cause trouble for him by attacking his subjects and disrupting the peace of the kingdom. They would love to revolt, to push him out of the throne, but everyone knows that the king is very powerful. They know they stand no chance. Though the king is hardly everywhere, but the structure of his kingdom makes his influence powerful at every corner of his kingdom with the same effect. His army is so efficient that they enforce his authority seamlessly. But his power and might precedes him. His renown spreads all over the kingdom, there is hardly any obvious rebellion. Only pockets of disobediences here and there that are always easily handled by his vast and efficient army.
So one day, the king decides to delegate his power to his son, actually an only son. He did not abdicate his throne. He was still in charge, but he had become so powerful that he didn’t need to lift a finger. His name does the job. All that his servants needed to get any job done was to say; ‘the king commands….’ And the person being required to obey does so immediately. There was no effort to be dissipated since everyone knows how powerful he is. So he decides it was best to transfer the entire authority of his throne to his son. Every authority exercisable in that kingdom now resides with the son. Of course those who would oppose the king tries to oppose him, but they quickly remember that the full force of the king’s throne was now at the disposal of the son. They remember that there was a public ceremony where the king publicly and formally transferred the authority of his throne to his son. Opposing the son is opposing the king. It means drawing the entire army of the kingdom after you. So obedience to the son was absolute by all subjects of the kingdom.
So one day a young man ran into the son of the king who is now the regent. The son likes him immediately and invites him home. They had dinner and he declares after the meal that relying on his authority as the one who now exercises the FULL power of his father’s kingdom he is adopting him as a brother. They have a ritual for this, so his servants quickly dresses him in a royal robe and puts a ring on his finger. So the son finishes up by placing his hand on the young man’s shoulder and says; ‘You are now my brother, whatever you want done, just demand it and say that I am the one that needs it to be done, it will be done immediately for you.’
Not long after, the young man comes home to his people from a journey and discovers that his cousin has been abducted by some bad boys. His folks have tried to get her released but the bad guys called their bluff and asked them to do their worse. He goes to the guys and told them to release his cousin immediately. They laughed him to scorn. He makes the same request again and tells them he is making the demand on the authority of the son of the king. That got their attention. If this guy is truly making this demand on the authority of the son of the king, they know better than to hold on to his cousin. So they did the obvious best thing. They ring up their network to check out the veracity of his claim. The claim checks out. He has recently been adopted by the king’s son and he has delegated authority for the use of his name to the young man. Boom, his cousin is free, even with some grudging apologies.
He suddenly realizes the enormity of his power and connection. Wherever he goes, whatever he wants, all he has to do was make the demand and place the name of his friend the king’s son on it and the stubborn doors open.
I know you have realized by now that this is a typology of the kingdom of God! God’s kingdom system is not democracy. It is theocracy, and God rules from His throne, with immense authority. But Jesus is the real regent who has been given that name above every other name, at which mention every knee bows and every tongue confesses. And He has delegated; ‘all power in heaven and on earth has been given unto me, therefore go ye… Behold, I give ye power over…all powers of darkness. If you ask anything in my name, it will be done to you’.
So if you were this young man in our story what are you going to do when you face any challenges going forward? You want to run around and see other strategies you can employ or you want to use the one sure option you have been given? Do you think that if you have some challenges you are going to say; ‘Ah, but it was a long time this name was given to me, I don’t know if it still has the same effect on opposition? Who knows if the son still feels loving towards me anymore. Who knows if he has changed his mind and would not want me to continue using his name? Who knows if he thinks that I have been taking advantage of it too much?
If you really consider this very well, let us even assume you had a fallen out with your now adopted brother and you stepped out and ran into a problem, you will still invoke the power of that name without thinking about the offence between you guys. And importantly too, you will discover that you will always love to keep your relationship with him fresh at all times so as to ensure that your authority is always effective and smooth on demand.
Thinking about this deeply, you would discover that it is self-defeating to always cheat ourselves out of what we could have gained, if only we know the authority we have been given.
The name of Jesus is more than a proper noun of identification. It is an office, the office of the Chief executive Officer of the universe. It is like a signed complimentary card. Wherever you present it within His organization-and that covers heaven and earth-it gets attention immediately. Do well to invoke the office if you have the right to.
