Jesus gave all believers the right to use His Name. When we pray, we are to go to the Father in the Name of Jesus. He specifically outlined what would happen when we use His Name. Jesus died; but He is also risen! You see, we are not in this world alone. When sudden danger strikes, we can take charge of the situation by using the Name of Jesus.
You will see that Paul did just that as you read Acts 28:3-6. As he was gathering sticks for a fire suddenly a venemous snake came out and bit him. The people expected him to fall dead, but he shook it off in the name of Jesus, because Jesus is alive.
