Making A Demand on Your Rights, in the Name of Jesus.
23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto
you, Whatsoever ye shall
ASK THE FATHER in my name, he will give it you.
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall
receive, that your joy may be full.
In John 14:13,14 the Greek word for “ask” implies to demand as
something due. In other words,
we could say, “And whatsoever you shall demand in My Name, that will I
do…” (John 14:13).
When you demand something due you in the Name of Jesus, you are not demanding
anything of God. God isn’t the one hindering you; Satan is. You are
exercising your authority over
the devil in Jesus’ Name.
Jesus said, “And whatsoever ye shall ask [demand] in my name, that
will I do. ..” (John 14:13).
Actually the Greek is more explicit than this. It reads, “Whatsoever
you shall demand as your right
in My Name….”
Based on your rights in Christ, you are demanding
Satan to stop in his maneuvers
against you. And you have the right to use the authority in the Name
of Jesus as something due
you because of your inheritance in Christ!
In John 14:13,14, the believer is standing against Satan and
circumstances which do not line up
with the Word of God. The believer is exercising his authority over
Satan and the adverse
circumstances affecting his life, and commanding Satan to bow his knee
to the Name of Jesus. The believer is also exercising the command of faith
in that Name.
John 16:23,24 ¶ And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily,
verily, I say unto you,
Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive,
that your joy may be full.
In John 14:13,14, Jesus is talking about something entirely different
from what He said in John 16,23,24.In John 16:23,24, Jesus is giving us the principle for New
Testament prayer. Jesus is
telling us that all prayer must be addressed to the Father in Jesus’
Name: “. . . Whatsoever ye shall
ASK THE FATHER in my name, HE will give it you.”
Here in John 16:23,24 Jesus is talking about prayer to the Father in
the Name of Jesus. We
discussed this kind of New Testament prayer at length in earlier
lessons. But in John 14:13,14,
Jesus isn’t talking about prayer. It is a demand of Satan to loose his
hold on whatever he has tried
to bind in your life: “. . . whatsoever ye shall ask [demand] in my
name, that will I [Jesus] do….”
Say the prayer below, and make a demand in the Name of Jesus on your rights in Christ, right now!
In the Name of Jesus, I make a demand on all what the devil has stolen
from me. I make a demand
on my perfect health. I make a demand on my stellar finances promised me in the Word of God. I make a
demand in the Name of Jesus
that favour, success, speed, strength, and a life of rest are mine all
throughout, in Jesus’ Name.
I DO NOT negotiate. This demand is a COMMAND in the Name of Jesus! I
receive it, and I thank God for
my finances and my health all throughout this week and this month, in
Jesus’ Name, Amen!
