READ: Matthew 1:20-21 (KJV)
20. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
21. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for he shall save his people from their sins.

The memory verse of today declares the omnipotent nature of the name of the Lord, In the same verse lies an eternal truth: it says only the righteous can find safety in the name of the Lord. This same Bible however, tells us that none is righteous (Romans 3:10). How then can we access the saving power in the name of the Lord? We find the answer in our Bible reading of today. It says the way out of sin is through the name of Jesus Christ. This name is all-powerful, mighty to save from sin, sickness, poverty, demonic attack and death. Praise the Lord!
The Bible predicts a lot of calamities as we approach the second coming of the Lord. Joel 2:30-31 prophesied that the Lord will “…spew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.”

Prophet Isaiah also spoke of the terrible things that would happen as we come closer to the end of the world (Isaiah 13:9). Beloved, the only way we can escape the end time calamities is through the name of Jesus. The name would however only work for you if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour. To do this, you must acknowledge your sins, confess and repent of them. Thereafter, begin to put your trust in this name which Philippians 2:9-11 describes as:
…a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Thus, it is your responsibility to cry to Jesus for mercy. Use the name of Jesus effectively as you begin to live a life of holiness and perfect obedience to God. By so doing, you would avoid being a victim of the terrible happenings in these last days. Our God is full of tender mercies and loving kindness (Psalm 103:4). He says in Joel 2:32:
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered…
