Pastor’s message: Greetings in the name of Jesus

Posted on: October 19th, 2019 by St. Bede Anglican Church

Over and over again in Scripture we read,  “In Jesus’ name,” or “In his name.” The devils were powerless because of his name (Luke 10:17). The demons were cast out in his name (Mark 16:17-18). Healing occurred in his name (Acts 3:6, 3:16, 4:10). Salvation comes in his name (Acts 4:12, Rom. 10:13). We are […]
